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 DOJs 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 Flynns 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 entrap General Flynn. Also included in this latest belated tranche of documents is an internal DOJ memo dated January 30 and hand-written notes by then-Acting AG Dana Boente dated March 30, 2017.
From a piece at the Washington Examiner:
Documents declassified this year indicate that Strzok abruptly stopped the FBI from closing its investigation into Flynn in early January 2017 at the insistence of the FBIs seventh floor after the bureau had uncovered no derogatory information on Flynn. Emails showed Strzok, along with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and several others, sought to continue investigating Flynn, even considering the Logan Act.
Notes from the FBIs head of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, show him asking, What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?
An email from March 2017 by Gauhar and notes taken by her in May 2017 are mentioned a number of times in special counsel Robert Muellers lengthy 2019 report. Mueller found that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election in a sweeping and systematic fashion, but he did not establish any criminal conspiracy between Trump and Russia.
Boente, who resigned from his position as the FBIs general counsel effective at the end of June after a decadeslong career in the Justice Department, was the last-remaining active government official who signed off on one of the flawed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants targeting onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Strzok, Gauhar, and Boente are among the key players in the Russia investigation whom Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, named as possible targets for a subpoena as part of his panels inquiry into the FBIs Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence investigation into links between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Notably, this latest batch of withheld FBI documents would not have come to light at all were it not for the efforts by federal judge Emmet Sullivan to do everything he can to keep this case alive past the November elections. Proponents of the trust the plan crowd, like that DrawandStrike guy on Twitter, will no doubt cackle that this fact means that Sullivan is somehow now a white hat just like Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions who is an integral part of Trump and Barrs 5D thinking process.
In reality, Sullivan is just a clearly-compromised jackass who is refusing to dismiss the case still, two full weeks after he was ordered by a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to do so. As Flynn attorney Sidney Powell noted yesterday, any other judge would have acted within 24 to 48 hours of receiving that order from the DC Circuit, but Sullivan is clearly still hoping to find some way to continue extending the case even past the July 16 hearing that he had scheduled prior to the Circuit Courts order.
In any event, US Attorney Jensen keeps plugging away, and its a safe bet that the utterly corrupt law enforcement agency that is the FBI still has more secrets yet to be revealed. What a travesty this all is.
That is all.
And Sullivan still has yet to dismiss the case despite being ordered to by the appeals court.
I think the interview with Flynn was on Jan. 24, 2017, not Jan. 25.
The FBI is a fraud law enforcement organization
Sullivan must dismiss the case as soon as the Circuit Court issues the mandate that was decided by the 3-judge panel. Normally that happens after the Courts decides that it will not grant an en banc hearing. The time for requesting an en banc hearing should have expired on July 4, but the deadline may have been extended due to the holiday.
I haven’t seen anything from the Court since Monday, so who knows what will happen next.
Sullivan is more afraid of the Deep State than three judges.
There is dirt on Sullivan and his son. His son was involved in a criminal incident and being Sullivan’s son, it went away.
Then put it out there.
It is a bit weird that he was supposed to dismiss it last week and they file this stuff today. Surely they have been collecting these materials for more than a few days.
So what gives? If they thought he was going to close the case they wouldn’t have prepared this filing.
So the judge is on a suicide watch? Or more specifically an arkancide watch?
Let's hope he hangs himself more with each day he delays.
“Sullivan is clearly still hoping to find some way to continue extending the case even past the July 16 hearing that he had scheduled prior to the Circuit Courts order”
I think it’s about time that Flynn and his lawyers just stop showing up to Sullivan’s hearings. Let’s see if Sullivan will issue a bench warrant to try to force them to attend proceedings that a higher court has already ordered to be stopped. Force his hand.
Thus, keeping the gag order on the good General, in effect. I’m convinced that is the goal here. Stall, any way they can.
FBI....FRAUD BUREAU of Interrogation
When is the FBI going to arrest Sullivan?????
Does this article ever reveal what the new documents are? It seems to address only older items. I’m curious on what was just revealed.
Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell, said that General Flynn is not under a gag order, at 45 minutes into this interview:
More info !!!!!!!
Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in the nations capital, said Tuesday that the documents handed over to Flynns defense team included handwritten notes from Strzok taken at a meeting on Jan. 25, 2017; notes from former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar at the same meeting; an internal DOJ document dated Jan. 30, 2017; and handwritten notes from then-acting Attorney General Dana Boente which were dated March 30, 2017. The notes remain sealed by the court.
So we know the documents exist and have been given to Flynn's attorneys, and we know who wrote the notes that are featured in them and when they were written, but they're still sealed by the court so we don't know specifics.
