Do New Strzok Notes Given to Flynn Lawyer Exonerate Flynn?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former fired FBI agent Peter Strzok penned notes and they have been turned over to Sydney Powell and the legal team of General Michael Flynn.

The former national security adviser, Flynn, is still involved and his freedom at stake in the ongoing case against him.

FOX News claims that Powell has stated that the documents further exonerate Flynn.

A notice of discovery correspondence between acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Tuesday, along with a letter from Sherwin to Powell and Flynn attorney Jesse Binnall was obtained by FOX News.

According to FOX News, Sherwin and assistant U.S. Attorney Jocelyn Ballantine wrote, “As we have previously disclosed, beginning in January 2020, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri [EDMO] has been conducting a review of the Michael T. Flynn investigation. The enclosed document was obtained and analyzed by USA EDMO during the course of its review.”

They went on to write, “This page of notes was taken by former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok. While the page itself is undated; we believe that the notes were taken in early January 2017, possibly between January 3 and January 5. These materials are covered by the Protective Order entered by the Court on February 21, 2018; additional documents may be forthcoming.”

The contents of the documents could not be disclosed because of a protective order but there are two hand written pages and they are heavily redacted.

Justice Department (DOJ) and Flynn’s lawyers continue to fight to try to get the case against him dismissed before a judge who is considering it.

Last month the Justice Department made a move to drop its case against Flynn. that decision was made after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case. That included newly discovered and disclosed information pertaining to the case.

DOJ officials have said that they concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was not tethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Flynn.

It is also alleged that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.

On January 22, 2017, Flynn was sworn in as the National Security Advisor.

On February 13, 2017, he resigned after information surfaced that he had misled the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

On May 22, 2017, Flynn rejects an order to hand over documents.

Invoking his right against self-incrimination, Flynn declined to comply with a Senate subpoena of emails and other records related to any dealings with Russians, as part of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election

Flynn enters a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Then between December 1, 2017 and December 4, 2018, Flynn participates in nineteen interviews with lawyers from the special counsel’s office or the Department of Justice.

That leads to injustice at its peak in the prosecution of Flynn.

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen said in a statement last month, “Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case. I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

The case still rests with the federal judge who is overseeing the case. That judge would have to make the final determination to dismiss it.

The wheels of justice move rather slowly.

Through investigating on my own, I’ve come to determine that Flynn was set up by the FBI.

It is difficult to imagine what Flynn and his family have gone through since certain people within the FBI sunk their viscous teeth into the General  who had a distinguished 33-year Army career that included top-level intelligence posts and promotion to the rank of three-star general.

I pray this new evidence, now fully reviewed by Powell, has some information that will lead to the exoneration of Flynn once and for all.

Obama Was in On Plot to Frame Flynn

by Daveda Gruber:

Sidney Powell, who is the lead attorney for former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn, is quite adamant that former President Barack Obama was in on a plot to frame her client.

FBI agents had questioned Flynn, insisting that the General did not need a lawyer and that the FBI agents took a casual approach with Flynn. They did not tell him that they were investigating him and did not warn him that it would be a federal crime to lie during their conversation.

This factored to Flynn pleading guilty at first to providing a false statement to FBI agents in regard to his contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn, with a change in attorneys representing him, changed his story and FBI tactics were then questioned.

Powell told Fox News, “These agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated.”

Powell went on to say, “So they kept him relaxed and unguarded deliberately as part of their effort to set him up and frame him.”

Newly released testimony gives light to the former President having knowledge of Flynn’s phone call with Kislyak.

There was an Oval Office meeting during which then Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates was surprised to hear Obama reveal that he knew about Kislyak.

Obama asked Yates and then FBI Director James Comey to “stay behind.” The former President then reportedly specified that he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.

Powell stated, “The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,”

Powell was asked if she believed that Flynn was the victim of a plot that went all the way up to Obama.

She replied, “Absolutely.”

Powell was also asked if anyone will face charges over this, and, if so, who.

Powell responded that it will be up to Attorney General William (Bill) Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut, who has been investigating the origins of the Russia probe for quite some time.

As far as the judge in the Flynn case, Powell said she believes the judge will sign off on the charges being dismissed as soon as Monday.

Imprisoning a former president isn’t an easy task. That being said, imprisoning the first black president wouldn’t be something anyone would want to be a part of.

In conclusion, what do the American people want to see happen? Some would love to see the guilty sent to Guantanamo Bay but is this what would be best for the United States?

It wouldn’t unite the people of this great county and it would make some happy and others would oppose it with gusto.

The mainstream media are just as much to blame as anyone else. Do we imprison them too?

I believe that Americans must hear the truth. This cannot be denied. There is a two tier system in this country that usually deals with people in different manners.

The people of this great nation want justice. Can justice be reflected by the American people being told exactly what has happened with this county’s elite political vermin? I’m not sure.

The most important variant I see is that the mainstream media (MSM) has to change the way they report the news. If the news is reported correctly, then the general population has the facts. That can change the way Americans see their leadership.

DOJ Drops Case Against General Michael Flynn

by Daveda Gruber:

On Thursday the Justice Department made a move to drop the case former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. This came after internal memos were released that raised profound questions about the nature of the investigation of Flynn.

In a court filing, the department proclaimed it is dropping the case that led to Flynn’s 2017 guilty plea of lying to the FBI, “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”

It was concluded by the DOJ that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn.” The DOJ also put on record that and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”

The final determination to dismiss the case would need to come from the federal judge who is overseeing the case.

Flynn, who is a retired Army lieutenant general, has, with the help of his new attorney Sidney Powell, been trying to withdraw the plea. The case appeared to be at a standstill and even President Trump has been asked about whether he would pardon Flynn.

Brandon Van Grack, who was the top prosecutor on the case,  abruptly withdrew, without explanation, in a brief filing with the court.

Flynn earlier this year moved to withdraw his guilty plea for making false statements to the FBI regarding his communications with Kislyak. His legal team, at the time, said that the move was “because of the government’s bad faith, vindictiveness and breach of the plea agreement.”

Allies of Flynn argued that he was basically set up in a perjury trap. In that interview, Flynn did not admit wrongdoing. He was accused of lying about his contacts with the then Russian ambassador He pleaded guilty.

At that point, Flynn was fired from his prominent post as national security adviser in February 2017. His resignation came as he was accused of misleading Vice President Pence and other senior White House officials about his communications with Sergey Kislyak.

With that in mind, the latest DOJ filing took note that Flynn’s false statement plea pertains to a crime that requires a statement “to be not simply false, but ‘materially’ false with respect to a matter under investigation.”

The filing stated that the government “is not persuaded that the January 24, 2017 interview was conducted with a legitimate investigative basis and therefore does not believe Mr. Flynn’s statements were material even if untrue.”

Jeff Jensen, who is the U.S. attorney reviewing the Flynn case, put in a recommendation, and last week put that recommendation in writing last week, to Attorney General William Barr to drop the case.

Jensen wrote, “Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case. I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

On Wednesday, the DOJ had released a mostly unredacted version of former acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s August 2017 “scope memo,” which outlined the authority of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller had for his investigation.

Well, that document brought to light, for the first time, that Mueller’s authority went drastically beyond what had been known previously.

Who would have guessed? Okay, maybe me and a couple of others?

It was well known that Rosenstein’s memo had authorized Mueller to probe “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of  President Donald Trump and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation,” and “any other matters within the scope of [obstruction of justice laws].”

The new document verified that Rosenstein authorized a deep-rooted criminal probe into the Trump campaign. That would have extended well beyond Russian interference efforts but was it necessary?

It was in the memo that it was revealed that Mueller was, among other things, looking into whether Flynn “committed a crime or crimes by engaging in conversations with Russian government officials during the period of the Trump transition.”

What? Looking for a crime? Yes, they were looking for a crime.

At least the DOJ saw that. Maybe this could put an end to the allegations against Flynn.

A note from FBI officials said, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”

Here’s where the Logan Act, which has not been used in a very long time comes into play.

The FBI notes say, “If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ + have them decide.”

Another note by the FBI read that the memo appears to weigh the pros and cons of pursuing those different paths, while cautioning, “If we’re seen as playing games, WH [White House] will be furious.”

The White House will be furious? Really? The American people would be furious, or least Conservative Americans, would be upset, to say the least.

Flynn and his family were put through Hell! Does that mattert?

Flynn was set up. Those who did this to an American hero are to blame. Real justice should be served. That is my final statement.

Will Flynn be Exonerated?

by Daveda Gruber:

General Michael Flynn’s legal team have documents that were finally turned over to them has led to rumors that Flynn may be exonerated.

Supposedly, exculpatory evidence had not been disclosed before the new documents were released.

Flynn had pleaded guilty to providing false statements to investigators regarding his contact with a Russian ambassador. He now claims that he is innocent.

The sixty-one year old Flynn had not been on Twitter recently but tweeted out some very interesting information on April 24th.

Flynn tweeted:

The tweet showed a court filing that confirms that he has claimed that he did not lie. It also claims that FBI agents stated that they believed him during an interview which was conducted when James Comey was still at the helm of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In the sworn declaration, Flynn said, “I am innocent of this crime.”

He explains in the declaration that he was under pressure from the possibility that his son could face charges. Flynn also claims that he received advice from his previous counsel, which led him to plead guilty.

Maria Bartiromo from FOX News tweeted Sunday evening that according to sources, Flynn “will be completely exonerated this week.”

Bartiromo tweeted:

Flynn’s attorney,  tweeted this:

It was reported by The Federalist that, according to an FBI source, that material does include exculpatory evidence.

It was also reported by The Daily Caller that they had a source who allegedly reported that current FBI Director Chris Wray had tried to keep the information from getting out. Wray’s office and the Justice Department have categorically rejected that claim.

DOJ Spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement, “The assertion that Director Wray pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Michael Flynn case is 100% false. To the contrary, the Director has been nothing but cooperative throughout this process.”

The guilty plea from Flynn was one of the first convictions that resulted from the Russian investigation by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Barbara Flynn, who is the Sister Of General Mike Flynn, tweeted this:

I cannot judge what went down because I was not there to witness it happen first hand but I do know that Flynn supported the Trump Presidency and it is quite apparent that those who did were targeted by the previous administration.

The fact that the Mueller investigation was allowed to go on for so long without any Russian collusion being found shows me that we all witnessed a witch-hunt that ruined the lives of a number of people who supported Trump and that includes Flynn.

Will Flynn Case be Dismissed?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Tuesday General Michael Flynn’s legal team has indicated that they are seeking to have the case against Flynn thrown out of court.

The former national security advisor’s relatively new legal team is accusing the prosecution of “egregious conduct and suppression” of possibly exculpatory evidence.

Fynn’s legal team headed by defense attorney, Sidney Powell, in a status conference in federal court in Washington, said, “There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement.”

The Supreme Court case of Brady vs. Maryland established the government’s obligation to turn over all exculpatory evidence. Flynn lawyers have issued a complaint that references that case.

There have been months of delays in the Flynn case. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan indicated he would like to set a tentative sentencing date of December 18th.

Powell said, “There is far more at stake here than sentencing. There were stunning failures to produce Brady material, going back to July of 2017.”

Prosecutors have strongly rejected that contention and have said that “the government has exceeded its discovery and disclosure obligations in this matter.” That includes providing Flynn with more than 22,000 pages of documents.

In 2017 Flynn pleaded guilty to providing false statements to the FBI during an interview about his contacts with the former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

The entire case against Flynn was a part of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Powell has accused the Justice Department of withholding documents critical to Flynn’s defense. Powell is demanding access to classified materials she maintains the government has blocked them from viewing.

Included in the documents that have been denied to Flynn’s legal team are FBI documents surrounding the actions of Bruce Ohr, who is a former high-ranking official at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Ohr had multiple contacts with the author of the infamous Trump dossier, Christopher Steele.

Powell has alleged that there is an internal DOJ memo that “exonerates” Flynn from being a Russian agent. The prosecution allegedly had this information in their possession and failed to disclose this information before Flynn signed his plea deal.

For now, Powell disclosed that Flynn doesn’t plan to withdraw from the plea deal.

Powell said, “There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement”

Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack has a different take on it. He argued that the charge Flynn pleaded guilty to was lying about his contacts with the Russian government, not of being a Russian agent.

Flynn was never charged with being a Russian agent.

The defense team for Flynn wants all the documents surrounding the FBI’s interview of Flynn.

Flynn’s defense team also wants all the documents surrounding the FBI’s interview of Flynn. Prosecutors stated that they have already turned all those documents over to Flynn’s team before the plea deal.

Powell claims that there is another document that hasn’t been released.

Powell said, “It would be in the FBI computer system.”

It is also alleged that there is evidence that Flynn passed a polygraph test.

Powell said, “There is just a plethora of information out there that we need the actual documents to support and the notes to support.”

In court documents Powell has compared the government’s conduct toward Flynn to the case of former Alaska Senator, Ted Stevens.

That case ended with U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is the same judge in the Flynn case, finding prosecutorial misconduct.

A year ago, government prosecutors said that they would ask Sullivan to spare Flynn any jail time because of his “extensive cooperation” in the Mueller investigation.

Will Flynn go free? Do you stand with General Flynn? I hope so because I stand with Flynn.

The man is an American hero who has been put through a grinder because people involved in the Russian probe were biased to the extreme that they hated President Trump and were desperate to find a way to destroy a legally elected president of the US.

Now we wait. A court hearing on “Brady” material is set for October 31st.
