Inside the Michael Flynn Case and DOJ Reform [Video]

Sidney PowellAlexandra Bruce – Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell joins Jan Jekielek of the Epoch Times’ American Thought Leaders to discuss the twists and turns of her client’s Appeal case.

She says perhaps the greatest irony in the story is that she had long held the presiding judge, Emmett Sullivan in high regard for the way he adjudicated the 2008 botched ethics prosecution of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, in doggedly requiring that the Government produce the Brady evidence (i.e., exculpatory evidence) and holding four federal prosecutors in civil contempt of court for withholding it.

She says, “What I didn’t expect was for Judge Sullivan to deny every single Brady request document we asked for. Every single one, in a 92-page decision that was just raging. I was flabbergasted.” Continue reading “Inside the Michael Flynn Case and DOJ Reform [Video]”

“Irreparable Harms”: How The Flynn Case Became A Dangerous Game Of Legal Improvisation

JEmmett Sullivanonathan Turley – The dismissal of the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn sent shock waves across Washington, including Congress which was hours away from a hearing addressing the case. Any appellate decision taking unprecedented measures to stop “irreparable harms” and “irregular” conduct is newsworthy.

However, those admonishments were not describing Flynn’s conduct but that of his trial judge, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan. The D.C. Circuit panel took the exceptionally rare step of ordering Sullivan to stop further proceedings and dismiss the case to avoid further damage caused by his prior orders.

Powell Files Stunning Motion Against Gleeson: It’s a ‘wrap-up smear’ against Flynn

Sidney PowellSara Carter – Sidney Powell, the defense attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, filed a scathing response in the court Wednesday against federal Judge John Gleeson’s amicus brief, which asked the court to reject the Justice Department’s request to drop all charges against Flynn.

Powell’s motion is powerful and contains a lengthy time-line revealing the stunning evidence discovered by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, as well as, the litany of new evidence uncovered by U.S. Attorney Jeffery Jensen, who was appointed by the Justice Department to conduct an independent review of Flynn’s case.

Powell argues in her brief that the “irony and sheer duplicity” of Gleeson’s accusations “against the Justice Department now—which is finally exposing the truth—is stunning.” Continue reading “Powell Files Stunning Motion Against Gleeson: It’s a ‘wrap-up smear’ against Flynn”

Ex-judge claims decision to drop Flynn case is an ‘abuse of power’

Emmett SullivanWND Staff – The former judge appointed by Judge Emmet Sullivan to assume the prosecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn contends that signing off on the Justice Department’s request to drop the charges against the former Trump national security adviser would be an “abuse of power.”

Sullivan’s decision to continue the prosecution instead of granting the Justice Department’s motion has been described as “bizarre and unconstitutional.”

The motion to dismiss came after evidence was unsealed confirming Flynn’s claim the FBI concocted a “perjury trap” that led to him pleading guilty to lying to agents in the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller of the now-debunked charge of Trump-Russia collusion.
