Feds say Michael Flynn hindering case by pushing conspiracy theories


 

With the total news focus on the attempted coup of one Donald J. Trump it is easy to miss the little stories of the Deep State. They are equally important as we get a glimpse into their continued machinations.

Michael Flynn

None reveal more than the continuing saga of Michael Flynn. No need to review the sordid details of how we got here. But the poor fellow is still being hounded by the DOJ. Paging AG Barr? Can you not get the boot of the government off his face? This tells us the DOJ marches on to their own drummer.

From NBC News

Federal prosecutors this week accused Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, of trafficking in conspiracy theories as part of his effort to force the government to turn over documents from the Russia probe.

Flynn, who cooperated in the special counsel investigation after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI, has taken an adversarial stance  Ed: (you can laugh here) since hiring a new legal team in June.

In a court filing in late August, Flynn’s attorneys accused prosecutors of suppressing exculpatory evidence and alleged that he was targeted by federal agents for “concocted and political purposes.”

In a new motion, prosecutors offered a stinging response to Flynn’s legal salvo.

“It is a fishing expedition in hopes of advancing conspiracy theories related to the U.S. government’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election,” wrote the prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

Among the Flynn claims the prosecutors rebut is the allegation that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said during the investigation, “First we f— Flynn, then we f— Trump.”

Prosecutors said Flynn’s lawyers first raised the claim in January 2018 and sourced it to an email from a news reporter. After the government debunked it, the new court papers say, the defense revived it last July and this time sourced it to a staff member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“Once again, the government reviewed information and conducted interviews, and once again confirmed that the allegations were completely false,” the prosecutors said.

…. best laugh line in the post:

“The motion even attacks attorneys in the Special Counsel’s Office who had no role in the criminal investigation of the defendant,” the court papers say.

It is worth rolling over to the full story just so we can keep our finger on the pulse.. Read more at NBC News

Flynn has a very sympathetic Judge who has castigated the DOJ. Flynn has a new legal team. What is clear is that once again the DOJ is still trying to break him financially. Month after month Flynn has to return to court.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

    I personally hate to see what is happening to Flynn, but at the same time, it is hard to imagine a lieutenant general who doesn’t know enough to keep his damn mouth shut during an FBI interview. First, the FBI will never ask a question that they don’t already know the answer to, and second, taking a lawyer to the interview would have saved him tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. Sad.

      Comey himself stated that it happened the first couple of weeks of the administration and as I recall it wasn’t suppose to be about him but about other things.. Comey said he figured they didn’t have things set up yet and he wouldn’t think it through — something to that affect… I think he thought he was being helpful and all being part the admin. Why would he guess the own FBI would be doing any investigation?

    That is SO SCARY, Bunkerville….they are SO glib, so slick.

    Your piece includes “Federal prosecutors this week accused Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, of trafficking in conspiracy theories as part of his effort to force the government to turn over documents from the Russia probe.”

    So Flynn wants the docs to be turned over to PROVE HE IS INNOCENT, right? Why DOESN”T the judge just rule in Flynn’s favor? I’m sure I haven’t followed this case as closely as you have….Flynn just looks honest to me; call me silly, since I don’t know the guy! But I have always thought this was nuts………CAN the judge rule INNOCENT today??

      It is not Flynn…the Judge keeps ruling for Flynn that the DOJ must give exculable evidence to Flynn.. The DOJ keeps fighting it and bring up more issues that the court must address.. This is just the latest fight not to release documents.

    And back in September we learned the DOJ actually exonerated him before he plea bargained and did not tell him. They have it in for this guy and they going to get him one way or the other.

    Flynn’s only way out is to announce that he’s switching parties. Hmmm, maybe Trump as well.

      There is an idea Peter…. this poor guy is in court every month.. I cannot believe Barr can’t get this stopped. The Judge from what I have gleaned in following the ups and downs is more than happy to rule for Flynn in his case. He has berated the DOJ for withholding info. Just another attempt to wear him out.
