Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has hired attorney Sidney Powell as his new counsel, Hill.TV has learned.
"I'm honored to be representing General Flynn, who i've long considered an American hero. The General and his family want to thank everyone across the country for their cards and contributions to his legal defense fund. He is going to continue to cooperate with the government, pursuant to his plea agreement," Powell told Hill.TV in a phone call.
Powell is author of the new book, "Licensed to Lie, Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice." The book's description reads "Licensed to Lie reveals the strong-arm, illegal, and unethical tactics used by headline-grabbing federal prosecutors in their narcissistic pursuit of power to the highest halls of our government" and focuses on the conduct of the DOJ during the Enron investigation in the mid-2000's.
Powell is a frequent presence on the Fox News and prominent critic of Mueller's investigation.
Flynn terminated Covington & Burling LLP as his counsel last week. The former national security advisor plead guilty last year to lying to the FBI and agreed to cooperate with Mueller's investigation. Flynn's sentencing has been delayed on several occasions.
Sidney already knows the Weissman Scam Book.
This is yuge!!!
Ms. Powell knows how to take on Weissman.
I love it.
Muller is gone, Barr is in, I assume Flynn is cooperating with Barr. I would expect a whole new picture to emerge.
I wish we could clone Sidney Powell, she’s truly on our side.
The execrable Susan Rice's email sent to herself on Trump's inauguration day---just hours before she was scheduled to leave purported to document part of the strange meeting Obama held.
As Obama's top secutity aide, Rice was nervous about the fact that, at the presidents direction, she had failed
to share information fully as it relates to Russia with President Trumps incoming national security team........
NOTE: Rice was being replaced by Gen Flynn.
Her actions violated longstanding American tradition. Outgoing administrations have always cooperated in the transition to a new administration, whether of the same or the opposing party, especially on matters relating to national security.
Susan Rice is far from the brightest bulb on the tree, but she was well aware that by concealing facts ostensibly relating to national security from her counterpart in the new administrationGeneral Michael Flynnshe was, at a minimum, violating longstanding civic norms.
If she actually lied to Flynn, she could have been accused of much worse. So Rice wanted to be able to retrieve her email, if she found herself in a sticky situation, and tell the world that she hid relevant facts about Russia from the new administration on Barack Obamas orders.
What were the secrets that Obama wanted to keep from the new Trump administration?
We can easily surmise that
<><>the Steele memo was paid for by the Democratic Party;
<><>that the FBI had to some degree collaborated with Steele;
<><>that the Clinton campaign had fed some of the fake news in the dossier to Steele;
<><>that Comeys FBI had used Steeles fabrications as the basis for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
These were among the facts that Obama and his minions didnt want Michael Flynn and Donald Trump to know. Susan Rice, we can infer, was told to keep these secrets, and if anyone ever asked why she had failed to disclose them to Michael Flynn and others on Trumps team, or even lied to those people, she would have the defense that President Obama ordered her to do it.
There may be more to it than this. The redacted paragraph likely contains more information about what it was that Rice wasnt supposed to tell the Trump team. One of these days, we will learn what was blacked out.
The fact that Michael Flynn was Susan Rices counterpart in the incoming administration may also be significant. We know that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynneven Peter Strzok!reported that they didnt think he had lied about anything.
And yet, Obamas DOJ and Bob Muellers investigationbasically a continuation of Obamas corrupt Department of Justice under another, less accountable namepersecuted Flynn to the point where he finally pled guilty to a single count of lying to the FBI in order, as he says, to end the madness and the financial drain.
Why were the Democrats so determined to discredit General Flynn? Perhaps because they wanted to pre-empt any outrage that may otherwise have followed on revelations that the Obama administrations National Security Advisor hid important facts from Gen Flynn, her successor, during the transition, and may have lied to him about those facts, in violation of all American tradition.
woohoo, sidney! you go girl
SUPER!!!!!!! It shouldn’t have taken this long! Glad she’s on board..Fabulous lady!
FABULOUS!! Sidney Powell is a great choice!
Powell is author of the new book, “Licensed to Lie, Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.”
This so-called “new” book was published on May 1, 2014! Five years ago. You just can’t trust the media.
She’s a great choice. She ain’t gonna get him his $750K atty’s fees back.
Awesome news!! Go get ‘em Sidney!!
A federal judge denied the request by Michael Flynns lawyers to withdraw from his case. Attorneys for President Trumps former national security adviser said in a court filing Thursday that Flynn was terminating them as their counsel.
General Flynn has notified the undersigned that he is terminating Covington & Burling as his counsel and has already retained new counsel for this matter, Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony wrote. ... This Clinton appointed judge is a real piece of shit. He had what was obviously attorney client privileged recordings and transcripts released. One wonders how he they were able to legally obtain these, I don't know. .
I’m also glad that General Flynn is on board. He’s going to fight.
Bravo. Shes awesome!
