  • POWELL: How Did The Wife Of A Mueller Protege End Up Hearing Mueller’s Case?

    Would it surprise you to learn that the judge presiding over a case of Robert Mueller’s is married to a Mueller protege? When Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted Concord, a Russian company that didn’t even exist, it landed on District of Columbia Judge Dabney Friedrich’s docket. At first, it appeared as though Friedrich had a handle on the malarkey taking place. At the initial hearings, she denied the special counsel’s request to delay everything. She rightfully questioned the validity of the charges — especially the unprecedented charge of “conspiracy against the United States.” As many noted, the Mueller squad did...

    (audio of Lou Dobbs show) Lt. General Michael Flynn’s family released the following statement on Friday after even more exculpatory evidence was released late Thursday showing that FBI agents charged with investigating Flynn were politically motivated and set him up. In fact, some of them texted about purchasing insurance policies to protect themselves. “The criminal conduct and malfeasance of those entrusted with the power to enforce our laws trampled the rights and lives of Gen Flynn, our entire family, and all Americans who cherish our Constitution,” Flynn’s family wrote. Read the full statement below:

    The transcript of the oral arguments from the August 11th DC Circuit Appeals court has been released. [pdf available here]. The DC Circuit held a full panel hearing to decide the outcome of the unopposed DOJ & defense motion to drop the case against Michael Flynn. You will remember Judge Sullivan injected himself into the case by approving an amicus to argue against dismissal; this led to a request by the Flynn defense for a writ of mandamus overriding Judge Sullivan. Initially a three judge panel agreed with the writ giving Sullivan 30 days to dispose of the case; however,...

    Maybe Judge Luttig was right all along. I had the misgivings you’d expect back in late May, when I disagreed with J. Michael Luttig, the stellar scholar and former federal appeals court judge, regarding how the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals should handle the Flynn case. At the time, that court’s three-judge panel had not yet heard oral argument on Michael Flynn’s mandamus petition — i.e., Flynn’s request that the panel find that federal district judge Emmet Sullivan was acting lawlessly. Sullivan had not only failed to grant the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn; he...

    The full bench of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington DC has agreed to consider whether judge Sullivan should be forced to dismiss a felony charge against Michael Flynn. The insanity continues. Everything about this case has been bizarre including Judge Sullivan’s refusal to accept the unopposed motion to dismiss the case. Now the full DC Circuit panel will hear arguments about why Sullivan should be allowed to continue the case without DOJ prosecution. It appears the court has pinned their en banc acceptance on the notion that Judge Sullivan had yet to issue a final ruling prior...

    The dispute over the Department of Justice's move to dismiss criminal charges against former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn will get a rehearing by the entire District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, the latest twist in the long-running legal drama that stemmed from the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016. The order was issued Thursday by the court. Called an "en banc" hearing, all 11 judges on the appeals court will sit in on a rehash of arguments that were made before a three-judge panel in June, which led to a...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 24, 2020 | Jerome M. Marcus
    The Michael Flynn case has opened a new front in the woke war on objectivity: Within the federal judiciary, we now have judges taking sides in the cases before them. It’s a development directly at war with the political philosophy that animates our Constitution. It would, if left unchecked, destroy the neutrality of the federal courts. If that were to go, the judiciary’s legitimacy and public respect for its dictates would be destroyed. Now, [Judge] Sullivan has doubled down on his insistence that he need not be neutral: He has, as if he were a party to the case, filed...

    Jan Jekielek at the Epoch Times held an exceptional interview with General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell a week ago where Powell’s entire timeline in regards to the government’s sham case against General Flynn was discussed.  This powerful interview is worth your time because it outlines the massive corruption surrounding the Flynn case that goes on to this day. We asked a week ago – What is Judge Emmet Sullivan waiting for?General Michael Flynn was lied to, set up multiple times before and after the Trump inauguration, excessively and to the point of illegally unmasked, targeted, ambushed in the White House,...

    Prominent conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan announced Tuesday that he will move on from New York magazine at week’s end - on the heels of Bari Weiss’ abrupt resignation from the New York Times’ opinion section. “This will be my last week at New York Magazine,” wrote Sullivan in the first of a series of tweets blasted out Tuesday afternoon. “I’m sad because the editors I worked with there are among the finest in the country, and I am immensely grateful to them for vastly improving my work,” he continued in the thread. “I have no beef with my colleagues, many...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 12 July 2020 | John Semmens
    This week's declassification of a memo written in January 2017 revealed that the Obama Administration Department of Justice and the FBI knew that Trump's National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn was neither a liar nor a Russian agent. Nevertheless, this information was concealed and Flynn was persecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team and coerced into agreeing to a false plea of "lying to the FBI." Revelation of this exonerating evidence supports the recent DOJ decision to withdraw its prosecution of Flynn and dismiss the charges. However, trial Judge Emmet Sullivan is appealing the dismissal of charges to the U.S....

    A federal judge on Thursday ordered that the videotape of Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff giving a deposition later this week be sealed so it can’t be used in political attacks against the former secretary of state and likely Democratic presidential nominee. Judge Emmett G. Sullivan said the transcript will be made public, so the public will know what Cheryl Mills says. He said it was “unnecessary” to have the video released. He extended that order to all of the depositions being taken in the open-records case, which also applies to Mrs. Clinton’s closest personal aide, Huma Abedin. Neither...

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, through his counsel Beth Wilkinson, has asked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear his case against the immediate dismissal of the Michael Flynn prosecution. The Thursday petition for rehearing comes after a three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit granted Flynn’s petition for writ a mandamus on June 24, directing Sullivan to dismiss the case. “The panel majority granted the extraordinary writ of mandamus to prevent the district court from receiving adversarial briefing and argument on a pending motion. The opinion is couched as a fact-bound ruling based on...

    WASHINGTON — Sidney Powell, a firebrand lawyer whose pugnacious Fox News appearances had earned her numerous private phone conversations with President Trump, sent a letter last year to Attorney General William P. Barr about her soon-to-be new client, Michael T. Flynn. Asking for “utmost confidentiality,” Ms. Powell told Mr. Barr that the case against Mr. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser who had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I., smacked of “corruption of our beloved government institutions for what appears to be political purposes.” She asked the attorney general to appoint an outsider to review the case, confident...

    A federal judge late Wednesday halted all proceedings in the case against President Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn. U.S. District Judge Emmett Sullivan issued a one-page order hours after a federal appeals court ordered him to dismiss the case saying he overstepped his authority by keeping it alive. The move buys Judge Sullivan some time while he decides whether to appeal the 2-1 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Judge Sullivan could appeal the case to the en banc appellate court or the U.S. Supreme Court. It is also possible one of the...

    Finally, a semblance of sanity has been restored to the law and Constitution in the misbegotten prosecution of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Wednesday ordered the controversial lower court judge, Emmet Sullivan, to follow the law by dismissing the false statements case wrongfully brought by the original federal prosecutors who were either incompetent or corrupt — maybe both. As evidence emerged that Gen. Flynn was set up and framed by malevolent actors at the FBI —fired Director James Comey, fired Assistant Director Andrew McCabe and fired counterintelligence...

    Michael Flynn’s lawyers accused a federal judge Wednesday of shedding “any appearance of neutrality” in the criminal case against President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor. That claim was made in response to the judge’s appointment of an attorney to oppose the Department of Justice’s request to dismiss the case. Flynn’s lawyers also said that the judge’s appointee, John Gleeson, “engaged in a flagrant personal and partisan assault” when he argued that the Justice Department committed a “gross abuse of prosecutorial power” in seeking to drop the case. The “sheer duplicity” of Gleeson’s “scurrilous arguments” against the DOJ “is stunning,”...
