Former national security adviser Michael Flynns legal team indicated in federal court Tuesday they are seeking to have the case against him thrown out, accusing the prosecution of "egregious conduct and suppression of possibly exculpatory evidence.
In a status conference in federal court in Washington, Flynn's lead defense attorney, Sidney Powell, said: "There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement."

The "Brady material" complaint is in reference to the Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland, which established the government's obligation to turn over all exculpatory evidence. The accusation came as both sides have squabbled over a sentencing date.
After months of delays, prosecutors have said they are ready to proceed to sentencing. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan indicated he would like to set a tentative sentencing date of Dec. 18.
"There is far more at stake here than sentencing," Powell said. "There were stunning failures to produce Brady material, going back to July of 2017."

Pardons are for the guilty.
Flynn is not guilty.
Neither are any of the others, in all likelihood...
“But since its the taxpayers who will pay then, I hope the lawyers are all fired and disbarred.”
The taxpayers are responsible for the actions of their employees.
For a pardon does one have to admit illegality?? Anyway a pardon now would stop the sentencing court action. Lets see what the judge rules because Id like see comey et al hoisted on their own petard.
NEVER, EVER talk to street cops, detectives, or prosecutors without an attorney's advice. These bogus perjury charges happen every day at every level. Spend the money and have a competent lawyer write out your answers. Also, demand in writing, exculpatory facts/evidence at the first legal opportunity.
Another real issue: Prosecutors make their way up through the chain-of-command by how many cases they win. I believe most are good honest people trying to put the bad guys away, but there are always bad apples.
These 3 sum it up perfectly......pardon the language(in advance)
