    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, through his counsel Beth Wilkinson, has asked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear his case against the immediate dismissal of the Michael Flynn prosecution. The Thursday petition for rehearing comes after a three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit granted Flynn’s petition for writ a mandamus on June 24, directing Sullivan to dismiss the case. “The panel majority granted the extraordinary writ of mandamus to prevent the district court from receiving adversarial briefing and argument on a pending motion. The opinion is couched as a fact-bound ruling based on...

    The judge in Michael Flynn’s criminal case asked a federal appeals court Thursday to reconsider its ruling last month ordering him to dismiss the prosecution of the former national security advisor to President Donald Trump. Judge Emmet Sullivan’s lawyer asked for a so-called en banc review of the decision of the appeals court, which would involve all active judges on the court to re-hear the case.

    Can someone please fire Christopher Wray already? Please? – Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri assigned by AG William Barr to review the DOJ’s despicable conduct of the Mike Flynn frame-up case earlier this year, came through again today with the revelation of more potentially exculpatory documents that had been withheld from Flynn’s lawyers by the FBI. The documents include handwritten notes from both FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar related to the January 25, 2017 meeting in which Strzok and fellow FBI agent Joe Pientka attempted to...

    American Thought Leaders ^ | 29 June, 2020 | Janiak Alec, Sidney Powell
    In this video, Sidney Powell is interviewed by Janiak Alec for nearly an hour. I learned many facts about the case I had never heard before or put together. Sidney Powell explains how she became involved in the case, many of the abuses by the prosecutors, Flynn's former lawyers, and Judge Sullivan. She talks about what may happen on the way forward, and that more exculpatory evidence is going to come out the longer the case continues. For anyone interested in this case, this is a treasure trove of what happened and what is happening in the case.
  • Flynn targeted for destruction because he wanted to investigate Brennan's 'off the books' billions of dollars at CIA?

    American Thinker ^ | 6/29/2020 | Thomas Lifson
    Sidney Powell, the tenacious lawyer who corrected the judicial abuse of her client, General Michael Flynn, is reminding us that she and her client believe he was originally targeted for destruction because he was aiming to investigate what he believes was serious corruption at the CIA under its director, John Brennan. Via Lifezette: Sidney Powell, attorney for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, said her client, in his duties as the White House national security adviser, was prepared to "audit" the U.S. intelligence community. That, according to the former federal prosecutor, is partly why federal agents "set up" Flynn. Powell, who...

    Molly McCann is of counsel at Sidney Powell, P.C., the defense firm for General Mike Flynn. On Twitter today, she took apart yet another piece of false reporting by the corrupt Democrat activists at the New York Times. It’s a brilliant take down that everyone should read. Here is McCann’s destruction of the Times’s despicably false piece, in full: The New York Times has no credibility as it continues to maliciously twist the truth with “reporting” that obfuscates the truth and panders downright lies. In an op-ed today, the NYT takes facts and tries to create a completely false narrative....

    Breitbart ^ | 6/25/2020 | Joshua Caplan
    Appearing Thursday on Fox Business Channel’s Mornings with Maria, attorney Sidney Powell said her client, former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. (ret) Michael Flynn, was planning to “audit” U.S. intelligence agencies before the fateful 2017 interview which the FBI used to prosecute him. A partial transcript is as follows: MARIA BARTIROMO: This is September 2018, we don’t have any evidence of collusion. And yet, they still wanted to take down Trump’s campaign, beginning with General Flynn. You basically open this up, this is going to be a domino effect, giving us a window into what really took place. Are their...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 062520 | Sundance
    Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell appears with Maria Bartiromo to provide insight into the DC Circuit Appellate court ordering the dismissal of the Flynn case. One of the key points Ms. Powell draws attention to is that her client was targeted. Within that targeting there’s a criminal conspiracy. In hindsight it is very clear the White House, DOJ and FBI knew they were treading on thin ice. Susan Rice’s memo to file is clearly a CYA memo for the White House. James Comey’s memos are clearly a CYA effort for his participation. Bill Priestap kept his own notes reflecting his...

    At the end of the day, Judge Henderson may decide, based on the long and sordid history of this case, that it isn’t just Judge Sullivan’s amicus who is intemperate. Over the course of nearly two hours, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals quizzed attorneys for Michael Flynn, the Department of Justice, and Judge Emmet Sullivan. The questions posed during oral argument suggest the court is hesitant to order Sullivan to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn — at least at this time. How the court will rule, however, likely rests in the hands of Judge...

    Judge Emmet Sullivan appeared as unofficial amicus curiae for the Resistance in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in the Michael Flynn criminal case yesterday. Sullivan, who has presided over the Flynn case since December 2017, was ordered by the federal appellate court to respond to Flynn’s previously filed petition for a writ of mandamus. Flynn sought the writ of mandamus after federal prosecutors moved to dismiss the criminal charge the special counsel’s office had filed against him in late 2017. Flynn originally pleaded guilty to the charge of lying to FBI agents about his December 2016 telephone conversations with...

    GATEWAY PUNDIT ^ | 5/28/2020 | Christina Laila
    Deep State operatives are leaking false stories on the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts ahead of a huge release in order to control the narrative. Former Acting DNI Ric Grenell already declassified the Flynn transcripts and John Ratcliffe, who was sworn is as the new Director of National Intelligence is set to release the transcripts soon! So now the Deep State is working with the media to spin, spin, spin. NBC News hack Geoff Bennett reported on Thursday afternoon that according to a ‘former Trump admin official,’ the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Grenell declassified are written summaries of the calls, not audiotapes. Deep State...

Twenty legal luminaries calling themselves “Separation of Powers Scholars” and led by Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe have written a brief urging Judge Emmet Sullivan to reject the government’s motion to dismiss the Michael Flynn case and to proceed to sentencing.The brief is a shoddy piece of work. It tells little about the Flynn case, even misleading on that score, but it triggers disturbing ruminations about the sad state of current legal academia.How...

    The confused judge who has unconstitutionally inserted himself into the Justice Department’s case against General Flynn made some actions behind the scene that are just as troubling. Judge Sullivan helped Jim Comey get his speaking gig at Howard University for $100,000. How much more corruption can America take. The corrupt judge who inserted himself into the General Flynn case, who insinuated the General was a traitor, has a lifestyle that matches his actions in court. He’s not only famous for his unethical standards and actions in the Flynn trial, he also ordered that deported asylum seekers must be returned to...

    Those condemning the DOJ’s decision to drop the charges against Michael Flynn ignore the growing evidence of misconduct by both the FBI and the federal prosecutors. Not quite two weeks ago, Judge Emmet Sullivan threw open the doors of his federal courtroom to the swamp when he invited third parties to pontificate on the propriety of the Department of Justice’s motion to dismiss the criminal charges against Michael Flynn. The next day Sullivan went further: He appointed a former federal judge, John Gleeson, as an amicus curiae, or friend of the court, to argue that the government’s motion to dismiss...

    The Department of Justice should weigh in and soon because this case is no longer just about Flynn. It is about separation of powers, the executive branch — and now, unfortunately, about Judge Sullivan. Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and his legal team, led by attorney Sidney Powell, received promising news Thursday from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. In a rare move, a three-judge panel ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan, the presiding judge in the long-running criminal case against Flynn, to respond to Powell’s petition for a writ of mandamus. In that petition, Powell asked the appellate court to order...

    A three panel DC Appeals Court Panel, Judge Henderson, Judge Wilkins and Judge Rao have ordered Michael Flynn’s Judge, Emett Sullivan, to respond to the defense petition for a writ of mandamus within ten days: Quoting the U.S. vs Fokker ruling the panel is not responding directly to the Flynn petition with an immediate decision; instead they are requiring Judge Sullivan to explain his decision to engage with extra-party amicus actions despite the DOJ and Flynn defense agreement on the motion to dismiss. The order can be viewed as a smart move by the appeals panel because Judge Sullivan has...

    A federal appeals court on Thursday ordered the judge handling the criminal case of President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, to respond to a request by Flynn’s lawyers to dismiss the case. The order came two days after Flynn’s lawyers asked the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to drop the case and assign any future court proceedings to another judge. The Department of Justice two weeks earlier made the surprise move to abandon its own prosecution of Flynn, who had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with then-Russian...
