Skip to comments.Flynn Hires Sidney Powell. Mueller’s ‘Pit Bull’ Meets His Match, Again.
Posted on 06/12/2019 12:57:07 PM PDT by Jacquerie
Embattled Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has hired well known defense attorney Sidney Powell to represent him before his sentencing hearing in Washington D.C.s federal court. Flynn, who fired his attorneys last week, will still fully cooperate with the government in all cases pending, Powell told SaraACarter.com.
Flynns former legal counsel Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony offered no explanation for their abrupt dismissal telling SaraACarter.com they decline to comment.
Powell is the author of the New York Times best seller and tell-all book Licensed To Lie, which exposed the corruption within the justice system. The book is based on the case Powell won against prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, when he was deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force.
Weissmann served as Muellers second in command for the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign, despite the fact that his tactics have been highly criticized by both judges and colleagues. He was called unscrupulous and has had several significant issues raised about how he operated during the Mueller inquiry into Trump campaign officials, including Flynn.
He prosecuted the accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLP, which ended in the collapse of the firm and 85,000 jobs lost world wide. Maureen Mahoney took the case to the Supreme Court, and Powell consulted. Mahoney overturned Weissmanns conviction and the decision was reversed unanimously by the court.
Powell has openly stated in columns and on cable networks that Weissmanns dirty tactics of withholding exculpatory evidence and threatening witnesses to garner prosecutions should have had him disbarred long ago.

I don’t think Flynn was either a Russian plant or used like a fool by Putin.
You need to do better research on the General. All of that is disinformation.
The man was a personal enemy of the most powerful man in the world. He is a fearless warrior and is an honest man.
The nihilists decided he had to be silenced. Which is what is happening. He can’t defend himself until he is freed from the court order to not talk about his case.
Go and buy his inspiring book, “Field of Fight”. He narrates the audible version.
Michael Flynn was/is a life-long DEMOCRAT and Obama appointee. These two facts alone should raise very serious red flags about who he is, especially considering how far left the party has shifted in recent years.
Right on. A three star general, intelligence specialist and director of the DIA fired by Obama for trying to make field intelligence in the ME available on a useful time-scale was a Russian plant. Sure I believe that wholeheartedly! /s/
So then why was this life-long Democrat, Obama-appointee, a regular guest on the state-controlled propaganda network "Russia Today" (RT)? Do you think he was there to spy on the Russians?
Stranger things can and do happen.
CIA Director under President Obama, John Brennan
Barack Obamas CIA chief, John Brennan, told the Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus, on 15 September 2016, in Washington DC, that when he had applied in 1980 to join the CIA, he admitted to them that in the 1976 Presidential election, when Jimmy Carter was running against Gerald Ford, Brennan had voted instead for the candidate of the U.S. Communist Party, Gus Hall, and that he was then greatly relieved to find that this information didnt cause rejection of his CIA-application.
This had happened 11 years before the 1991 end of the Cold War...
"During the Cold War the CPUSA [Communist Party, USA] had a parallel underground structure, and a small number of people spied for Moscow.
Until the 1980s the party was receiving substantial amounts of Soviet funding, says Klehr, money that the FBI knew about and tracked."
President Trumps former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, received $56,250 in payments during the presidential race for work done for two Russian firms and Kremlin-backed news outlet RT, according to new documents obtained by a House Oversight panel.
Flynn was fired from his White House post last month after misleading Vice President Pence about communications with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.
Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are requesting an additional investigation into newly disclosed payments he received from Russia-based companies, sending a letter detailing the allegations to Trump and the leaders of the Pentagon and FBI.
Flynn spoke at a gala hosted by RT in December 2015, an event he acknowledged during last years campaign.
But he refused to say how much he was paid, citing an unwillingness to have his speaking fees publicized.
The documents reveal the retired Army lieutenant general received more than $45,000 for participating in the event.
His speakers bureau, Leading Authorities, took a $11,250 cut.
The event occurred in Russia, and his travel and accommodations were covered.
At the time, he was working on a volunteer basis as a military adviser on Trumps presidential campaign.
The new documents obtained by the committee also detail that Flynn received $11,250 from Volga-Dnepr Airlines in August 2015, a Russian airfreight company that the United Nations had suspended from its list of approved vendors after a corruption scandal involving an indicted Russian United Nations official.
Flynn received an additional $11,250 payment in October 2015 from the subsidiary of a Russian company specializing in uncovering Western government spyware, Kaspersky Lab.
Its founder, Eugene Kaspersky, denies that it has stocked the firm with those with close ties to Russian intelligence.
Flynn, who served as the director of Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 until he was fired from the job in 2014, still had a top-level national security clearance when he performed the work in 2015. ..."
suspended last month, pending further review. ..."
I am confident that she will kick ass and take names!
I am alos confident that the final result will be pleasing to everyone but LIEberals!
YES!!! Finally Flynn gets a break!
I’m so glad I donated to his legal defense fund!!!
Weisman and Mueller need to be prosecuted for their corruption!!!
The Russia Hoax was originally aimed at Flynn, not Trump.
So what was Jill Stein doing in that group???
GO SIDNEY!!!!! SIC “EM!
Getting Dis-Barred??? BFD...they are in their TWILIGHT lawyer years!! Disbarment means NOTHING.....but PRISON will mena EVERYTHING!
What you are saying means BANKRUPTING the FAMILY....LOSING their HOMES AND REPUTATIONS!!
Jill Stein has said that she was in Russia to talk about nuclear disarmament and to open a peace dialog with Russians.
I am no Flynn fan but they way he was pushed out by Pence smacks of palace intrigue. Pence is a loyal GOPe and not one of the MAGA good guys, IMO. Flynn was with POTUS way before Pence parachuted in and was one of the few early supporters given a major role in the Trump admin.
First they came for Michael Flynn, but he got no sympathy from me...
Be as you like. I will be as I like:
I have sympathy for ANY American citizen abused by the full force of Federal prosecutorial power under the color of law.
That includes Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Whatever crimes they may - or may not - have committed, the Federal apparatchiks broke the law to punish them.
Someday the same scenario may destroy the livelihood and life of a hapless American citizen for whom you DO have sympathy.
My intent was to take Mueller to task, not Flynn.
Mueller is the one who should have said there was no evidence to support an investigation. He didn’t.
I have a problem with both Manafort and Flynn’s situation.
Flynn has been destroyed financially as near as I can tell, and Manafort has been mistreated in jail and prison.
Nah, the government has abused it’s authority with both.
Add Trump in. They’ve abused his rights too > IMO.
That is entirely irrelevant.
All that is relevant is that official representatives of Federal Executive authority abused their power to entrap and destroy an American citizen.
That is all that signifies - if, that is, you think Constitutional Rights should apply to all American citizens at all times, and not just to those persons of whom, and at those times of which, you approve.
