Skip to comments.Did The Mueller Team Violate Brady and Flynn Orders?
Posted on 05/09/2020 12:00:50 PM PDT by Arones
With the release of the new material from the case of Michael Flynn, an array of experts came forward to assure the public that it was all standard procedure for investigators to conclude that there was no criminal conduct uncovered and then prosecutors creating a crime (including the use of a clearly unconstitutional law never used to convict anyone since the start of the Republic). Many of these same experts who have been espousing untethered (and ultimately rejected) theories for criminal and impeachment charges for years. Yet, what was most striking is how many also rejected any claim that the undisclosed evidence, at a minimum, violated Brady, the case requiring the government to turn over exculpatory information. Indeed, Ben Wittes, a staunch defender of James Comey, assured readers while you might not know much about federal law enforcement, this is all standard practices. In fact, this is a clear and flagrant violation of the both Brady and the orders of Judge Emmet Sullivan. The fact that such violations are also dismissed by mainstream media and experts reflects how rage has distorted legal analysis in this Administration.
Brady v. Maryland is a 1963 decision of the Supreme Court that prosecutors must under the Fifth and Fourteenth amendments disclose favorable evidence to defendants upon request, if the evidence is material to either guilt or punishment. There are also due process rights requiring the disclosure of any evidence that would allow the defense to attack the reliability, thoroughness, and good faith of the police investigation or to impeach the credibility of the states witnesses. Kyles v. Whitley, 514 U.S. 419 (1995).

These documents do not show prosecutors finding a way to arrest someone suspecting of a crime. They show prosecutors trying to create a crime. It was previously known that the investigators who interviewed Flynn did not believe that he intentionally lied.
This is a left leaning attorney who is infuriated at the gross malfeasance and criminality
I know nothing about this process but I wish it worked like on TV, Books, Movies and the judge would declare the prosecutor in contempt and send him to the nearest prison for 30 days without bail.
Turley and others can talk about this til they’re blue in the face. The reality is that the Left and those who stupidly support them care not one whit that Flynn’s rights were violated. Everything for them is about the end justifying the means.

The headline begs a question that everyone knows the answer.
Did The Mueller Team Violate Brady??
Silly question. The highly unethical and corrupt Mueller hired Andrew Weissman to be his Lieutenant (and given Mueller’s appearance during the Congressional testimony after the report was released....his onset senility suggests that it was the Weissman Report - not the Mueller report - and had not even read the report.)
Weissman figures prominantly in the book Sidney Powell wrote (License to Lie)...and Powell became LTG Flynn’s lawyer after Flynn fired his inept (and possibly corrupt) legal team. Weissman is FAMOUS (or infamous) for his repeated Brady violations. That he was not disbarred should be an embarrassment to judges that permit him to appear before them as a lawyer. That he was hired by DoJ after all his Brady violations - is proof that the DoJ is run by corrupt crooked people.
Weissman withholds documents ALL THE TIME - and then he claims that he missed them, or quickly reviewed them and saw nothing important that needed to be revealed....so he tries to avoid sanctions (and disbarment) by essentially acting as ‘shucks...I tried to do the right thing...sorry I missed it...but no harm, no foul..’
Fact is - every previous prosecution with Weissman on the prosecution team should be forced to go through a new trial - same as if you found a forensic laboratory had been discovered to fake lab results to get prosecutions
Wittes is 100% correct. It obviously is standard practice for the FBI to routinely break the law.
Absolutely they were trying to create a crime. They already had the actual transcripts of the phone call, and couldnt make a case on that, so it was a textbook setup to get Flynn to make a mistake during the interview.
But Flynn was able to talk around their traps during the interview. The FBI (Strozk as a matter of fact) struck out trying to get Flynn to trip up during the interview.
So they went back to the FBI, where McCabe re-wrote the 302 of the interview. But even then, they didnt think it was enough.
It was actually only several months later, if not a year, that Mueller and his band of criminal prosecutors, came along, looked at the doctored 302, and declared a crime had been committed.
Would the Dems heads explode if Trump nominated Turley to fill RBGs seat?
It would be fun to find out.
Rule of law is the same as law of jungle, except the rhetoric in rule of law is used to disguise the fact that all law is outcome oriented, and has nothing to do with any sort of “rule” other than “find me a precedent to mangle.”
The folks who say what happened to Flynn is not unusual are right. The only thing unusual about this railroad job is that it got caught.
I recall our elected betters telling us Mueller was honorable and would get to the truth. This back-stabbing of the public, disguised as comfort, went on for years. See Trey Gowdy, etc. as example of the duplicitous people involved.
He’s just infuriated that the myth is being exposed.
He’ll be really hot to tell us that this is the ONLY time this sort of thing has ever happend, and now that we see it, it won’t ever happen again.
The revised guidelines that Rosenstein sent to Mueller was a wish-list of areas they wanted to pursue, but couldn’t with the original order. Rosenstein re-wrote the new order, and included that wish-list that Mueller’s team had put together. It was created from a “this is what we need” list, and Rosenstein delivered.
It all followed the Watergate script to a T.
Only thing went wrong - RINOs lost their nerve.
It was 5 months later.
Then, it came out the prosecution was corrupt and Brady material had been withheld. The conviction was thrown out but the damage had ben done.
After that Judge Sullivan began to enter a standing order at the beginning of every case ordering the prosecutors to disclose Brady material and take the widest possible interpretation of what is required to be produced. That way, a prosecutor can't say aw shucks I guess I missed that but can be held in contempt.
Will Judge Sullivan have the guts to hold these unethical DOJ punks in contempt?
Why, working a witness over with a rubber hose and shining bright lights in his eyes until he says what the prosecutor wants is standard procedure. Then he can get some sleep and talk to a lawyer in the morning. Waterboarding, now that’s torture.
Here’s a story
Of a spook named Comey
Who was working for Obama, dontcha know
There were G-men, all birds of a feather
But acting all alone
And then one day when this lady met this fellow
Who was married but led a double life
They texted how orange man was a bad ‘un
And needed a sharp knife (in the back)
The Brady-violating Bunch...
The repubs lost the house because of all these lies also. Didn’t help that POS ryan was on hitlery’s side.
