Will Michael Flynn rescind his guilty plea?

The more the inof comes out on what the FBI and the DOJ did under Obama, there is a high likelihood that Flynn will either rescind his guilty plea or have his conviction overturned. He was railroaded as bad as anyone in this mess.

IF McCabe/Comey get indicted for what they did, you can toss this Flynn conviction out the window.

Internal DOJ memo cleared Flynn of being Russian agent – but it's missing, his attorneys say

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/doj...-attorneys-say

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s legal team charged in court Tuesday that the Department of Justice cleared Flynn of being a Russian agent in a memo as far back as January 2017 — but that prosecutors still haven't produced the document.

The claim came as Flynn's lawyers said in a status conference in a Washington, D.C., courthouse that they are now seeking to have the case against him thrown out, accusing the prosecution of "egregious conduct and suppression” of possibly exculpatory evidence.

“We've ... learned that there was a letter dated January 30th, 2017, or an internal memo from the Department of Justice, that completely exonerates Mr. Flynn of being an agent of Russia, and that document has not been produced to us yet," lawyer Sidney Powell said, according to a transcript of Tuesday's hearing obtained by Fox News.

FLYNN LEGAL TEAM ACCUSES PROSECUTORS OF MISCONDUCT

Powell continued: "So they had a lot of information that they didn't disclose. They also have knowledge of a letter from the British Embassy that completely discredits [Trump dossier author] Christopher Steele and undoes the whole Steele dossier debacle."

Fox News learned about the memo's existence last week. Asked by Fox News earlier this week if they were aware of the memo and could provide it, a DOJ official said they would try to identify it.

But responding to Powell's concerns in court on Tuesday, a government lawyer said they were irrelevant, noting they did not accuse Flynn of being a Russian agent in the first place, according to the transcript.

"The government has not alleged in any filings in this court or before the court that the defendant is an agent of Russia. That is not part of this case. That is not part of the act that he has pled guilty to. It was lying to the FBI about particular communications involving Russia, not being an agent of Russia," prosecutor Brandon Van Grack said.

As Van Grack noted, Flynn was charged – and dismissed from the Trump administration – for misleading statements about his conversations with then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

But new developments raise questions over the underlying offense that formed the basis for the initial FBI and DOJ investigation into Flynn.

Aside from Powell's latest claims in court, Fox News reported on Monday that then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the White House in early February 2017 that the bureau was not considering Flynn for a potential Logan Act prosecution over contacts with the Russian ambassador before Donald Trump was sworn in as president. McCabe was referring to the rarely prosecuted 200-year-old statute that bars American citizens from engaging with a foreign government without authorization from the current U.S. government.

The records also indicated that Flynn reported, on two separate occasions, in the days leading up to his White House firing, that FBI agents told him the bureau investigation was over or being closed out.

Flynn was never charged with improperly communicating with Kislyak, but in December 2017 pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Powell remarked later on Tuesday at the hearing: "There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had met its Brady obligation disclosing what it knew before Mr. Flynn entered a plea and, frankly, before he even made a proffer."

ANDY MCCARTHY: FLYNN SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PROSECUTED

The "Brady material" complaint is in reference to the Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland, which established the government's obligation to turn over all exculpatory evidence. The accusation came as both sides have squabbled over a sentencing date.

Flynn's defense team also wants all the documents surrounding the FBI’s interview of Flynn. Prosecutors claim they already turned all those documents over to Flynn's team prior to the plea deal.

The government has "provided all drafts of that interview report of which it is in possession," prosecutors said Tuesday.

Prosecutors, Flynn's attorneys say the former national security adviser has completed government cooperation

A five-page status report shows a lot of daylight remains between former national security adviser Michael Flynn's new legal team and the government; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from Washington.

Powell also suggested there is another document that hasn't been released. "It would be in the FBI computer system," Powell said.

Powell additionally told the court there is evidence that Flynn passed a polygraph test. "There is just a plethora of information out there that we need the actual documents to support and the notes to support," she said.

After months of delays, though, prosecutors have said they are ready to proceed to sentencing. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan indicated he would like to set a tentative sentencing date of Dec. 18.

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

Fox News' Catherine Herridge, Alex Pappas and Jake Gibson contributed to this report.

Somebody freaked out when I had Flynn in my avatar during the elections a few years ago. I think it might have been Donger. He kept asking "WHY DOES THIS GUY HAVE A RUSSIAN SPY IN HIS AVATAR!"

Flynn is a Patriot.

Everything is coming together nicely:


Updated 3:59 PM ET, Tue September 24, 2019

A federal judge on Tuesday threw out a jury's guilty verdict against Michael Flynn's lobbying partner Bijan Kian, citing insufficient evidence.

Kian was convicted this summer of illegally acting as a foreign agent and conspiring to hide his work from the Justice Department -- fallout from pro-Turkey lobbying he did with Flynn in 2016.

They already have Bolton's replacement. Flynn was good on exposing the backing and creation of ISIS by our govt and two allies, but he is bad on Iran imo.

Even so, if I won the lottery, I'd buy him a house to replace the one he had to sell because of this, after what was done to him.

I think he would be allowed to rescind it but every indication is that his attorneys are trying to have the entire matter thrown out for misconduct in the governments failure to turn over Brady material. I doubt he wants to go forward with several trials on all the charges. He most likely will just get a slap on the wrist for the count he plead to.

Bolton's replacement hadn't been named when I posted that.

And Flynn will be just fine, financially and otherwise. As soon as he's exonerated he'll be right back on the inside, which he obviously deserves. He'll get a huge book deal - a real one, not a fake money-laundering "book deal" like Bath House and Big Mike got - and most importantly he'll be remembered as one of the greatest Patriots in the history of our nation.

Flynn's sentencing postponed as it is appearing more and more that the FBI intentionally changed info to harm Flynn and didn't submit accurate details!

WTF???

He is going to get off and the government is going to get their hands smacked here as well.

All these political hacks at the top of the FBI and other bureaucracies that have done all these dirty deeds better get their own lawyers.
