I’ll have to politely disagree about granting a pardon, now. I think the Dem’s are salivating over that prospect.
Perhaps some of the legal folks on here can shed some more light on this whole thing. Reason being:
Flynn took a plea, which normally means you’re admitting guilt and you waive your right to appeal, right?
Now that Powell is on the case, and I’m not following this thing regularly, it seems like he was not only railroaded by Mueller/Wiseman, his own defense attorney’s threw him to the wolves.
Powell, it would appear, seems to be uncovering some legitimate misconduct on the part of the DOJ prosecutors and they’re trying to stall or not provide the documentation that Powell wants.
So....if Powell continues to chip away at this and shows that the DOJ took their corruption to a whole new level and it can be shown that they fabricated a case, entrapped him, charged him regardless of what the FBI interviewers said, etc etc....can he withdraw the plea? case be tosses? judge declare some type of prosecutorial misconduct resulting in the charges being dropped?
Yes. Exactly. Here is the famous Sen. Stephens case where the same judge through out the charges after the conviction when he learned the extent of the prosecutorial misconduct by the government.
Here is an article from the LA Times about the events in the Stephens case: Ted Stevens charges dismissed as judge excoriates prosecutors
Notice how Trump's guys were pushed to leftie lawyers? Cohen going to Lanny Davis, for example, who scr#wed Cohen.
The insiders get into people's ears and give them bad advice.
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.
