Michael Flynn Exonerated By Bombshell DoJ Memo Exposed During Hearing

12853

Authored by Sara Carter via SaraACarter.com,

A bombshell revelation was barely noticed at National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s hearing Tuesday, when his counsel revealed in court the existence of a Justice Department memo from Jan. 30, 2017 exonerating Flynn of any collusion with Russia.

The memo, which has still not been made available to Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, is part of a litany of Brady material she is demanding from prosecutors. The memo is currently under protective order and Powell is working with prosecutors to get it disclosed, SaraACarter.com has learned.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan presided over the hearing Tuesday  and set a tentative Dec. 18 sentencing date. He told the prosecution and defense that the sentencing date could be moved depending on the outcome of requests for Brady material requested by Powell and how the case will unfold in the upcoming months. Sullivan also noted during the hearing that the Brady order takes precedence over the plea agreement.

Powell will likely seek to have case dismissed for ‘egregious’ prosecutorial misconduct and withholding of exculpatory material.

“Judge Sullivan is obviously taking the Brady issues very seriously and clearly told the prosecutors that his Brady order stands regardless of the plea agreement or the plea,” Powell told SaraACarter.com.

“If the prosecutors here were seeking justice instead of a conviction, General Flynn would not have been prosecuted. They have been hiding evidence that he was exonerated in early 2017.”

Government Misconduct

Powell noted the extraordinary misconduct of the government during the hearing. She also said that Flynn would have never pleaded guilty if the government had disclosed the Brady materials before the original trial that she is now demanding. There would not have been a plea if the prosecutors had met their Brady obligations, Powell argued before the court.

Powell’s discovery of the memo shatters not only the narrative that was pushed by former Obama Administration officials regarding Flynn but also the ongoing narrative that President Donald Trump’s concern over Flynn’s prosecution amounted to alleged obstruction.

The January, 2017 timeline of the DOJ memo is extremely significant. Former FBI Director James Comey said in previous interviews that he leaked his memos through a friend to be published in the New York Times with the hope of getting a special counsel appointed to investigate Trump for obstruction. In late August, Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his much anticipated report on Comey. It was scathing and revealed that he violated FBI policy when he leaked his memos that described his private conversations with  Trump. However, the DOJ declined to prosecute Comey on Horowitz’s referral.

But the existence of such a memo calls into question Comey’s actions both when he met with Trump privately and when he wrote his personal memos recanting the meetings. If the Jan. 30, 2017 DOJ Flynn memo does exonerate Flynn, then it will call into question Comey’s actions when he had the private meetings with Trump. Why didn’t Comey reveal to Trump that DOJ found no evidence that Flynn was an ‘agent of Russia’ when he met Trump at the White House on Feb. 14 meeting?  Why were the stories about Flynn, along with classified information regarding his phone conversations with the former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, leaked to the Washington Post in January, with a followup in  early February? Remember, the information was leaked by senior government officials, according to the author and columnist David Ignatius. Ignatius said that senior officials accused Flynn of violating the Logan Act, even worse conspiring with Russia.

Further, new information that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe advised that there was no Logan Act violation, along with the DOJ internal memo of Jan. 30 that Flynn ‘was not an agent of Russia,’ was enough information for Comey to advise the President that Flynn had been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Instead, Comey claimed obstruction of justice by the President.

Comey’s Memos Vs DOJ Jan. 2017 Flynn Memo 

Comey said in one of his most significant memos chronicling his Feb. 14, 2017 meeting at the Oval Office with Trump, which was the day after Trump had fired Flynn, that Trump asked everyone but Comey to leave the room, and told him he wanted to “talk about Mike Flynn.” Flynn was fired at the time over controversy that arose from a classified information leaked to the Washington Post regarding his conversations by phone in December, 2016 with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The story stated that Flynn had discussed the sanctions with Kislyak. However, Comey later admitted that the FBI agents he sent to interview Flynn didn’t believe he was lying about his conversation with the former ambassador.

According to Comey’s memo Trump said:

 “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

Comey suggested that Trump’s request was inappropriate, accusing him of obstructing justice by asking him to drop Flynn’s case. He used this as a pretense to leak his memos and put the nation through more than two years of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel, which in the end found no evidence of a conspiracy with Russia. As for obstruction, Attorney General William Barr and then Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that there was no obstruction based on the evidence gathered by Mueller’s team.

However, if Comey would have advised Trump of the Jan. 30 memo it would have cleared up any unfounded lies that Flynn had in any way colluded or conspired with Russia.

If and when this memo is made public, the ongoing narrative continuing to be pushed by those former Obama officials, as well as, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff who continues to push for hearings on obstruction will be squashed.

It looks like Comey, who would have been fully aware of this memo, has a lot of explaining to do.

  1. When it all comes out, Obama will also have a lot of explaining to do. This is all part of the “extra-judicial “ coup launched by Obama and the Democrats on our democracy. We must not rest until the full truth is revealed. We also need to change the law to allow government officials to be sued in civil court and be held personally accountable for their actions , including past presidents. They are not protected by the constitution so that a constitutional amendment is not needed. Just common sense.

  2. In my opinion, when the memo is released, the disgraced Comey should have to pay back the cost of the entire Mueller investigation that we, the tax payers had to pay for! Then he should be locked up like the criminal he is!

    • Have Comey pay for Flynn’s legal costs, first. It is the VERY LEAST we can do for this honored veteran. Then, bring on a new and full investigation into Comey’s activities and indict ALL that get caught in this huge web of lies and deceit INCLUDING Obama AND Soros!!

  3. Y’all know that nuthin is gonna happen to any Obama Clinton Cabal member as long as Bush Boy Barr is Attorney General.
    After the election, Trump will appoint a new Attorney General, someone outside the Obama Clinton Cabal, and justice will be done.

    • you could be right. but I have high hopes for Barr and his new NJ prosecutor. the DOJ has a lot to account for, but I think they will soon. PS: the closer this is to November 3, 2020 the better.

  4. Gen Flynn should not only be totally exhonerated, all charges dropped, his total financial losses be restored along with a huge additional settlement to restore the dishonor put upon him by those who used him to attempt a coup D’etat! This decorated war hero was wrongly disgraced by the very people now & finally being investigated! THERE MUST BE JUSTICE!

    • There also should be a PUBLIC APOLOGY, To the President, General Michael Flynn, and thee AMERICAN PEOPLE of the disgrace that they put these men through !! The Democratic party should also make a FORMAL APOLOGY to these same men and MANY MANY OTHERS !! NOW, and NOT in the future !! We American People all deserve ATLEAST that !! Pay back OUR tax dollars !!

  5. I hope every person who had anything to do with putting Flynn in the position he is in legally and financially end up having to pay through the nose for what they have done to this honorable man. All Americans should be furious and terrified that our government is capable of the evil that we have seen from the Obama Administration and the so-called justice system in Washington.

  6. So, does this mean that Michael Flynn gets all his legal costs reimbursed by the federal government? Flynn’s guilty plea was ONLY given to avoid further bankrupting legal expenses incurred because of an out-of-control Obama-Clinton machine that “HAD” to prove SOMEONE guilty of SOMETHING in order to complete their illegal coup of Donald Trump. Or, maybe those legal costs should be assigned to the real guilty parties – Obama and Clinton?

  7. Shelba; you are sooooo right. All Americans SHOULD be furious with this disgusting attack on General Flynn and the way the Justice Department / DOJ and the FBI GROSSLY abused their power and abused our system of justice, but that will not be the case.

    Almost half of the people of our country have become deranged with their absolute hate of anything Trump or connected with Trump that they are blind to justice and reality. In their twisted minds, anyone and anything can be destroyed in any effort that has a purpose of destroying Trump. They do not care about anything except the destruction of anything Trump. They are truly and completely deranged.

    ALL, be wary of what will come when Trump gets reelected and the Republicans take back the house of representatives. I believe the after effect may very well be the most violent in our country’s history. These unhinged liberal leftists will go an a rampage unseen in our history when Trump gets reelected.

    • The problem is that a lot of people don’t pay attention to politics and don’t hear about such findings. I think if Flynn is exonerated, as he should be, all channels will have to carry that news. I don’t know if true justice will ever be served against all the plotters involved in the coup against Trump but if it is not, there will be a lot of pushback by the American people. This is the worst scandal I have ever witnessed and I am in my senior years. And if Trump is reelected, as you suggest, there will be a lot of mayhem on the part of the leftists.

  8. The F.B.I. and D.O.J. hid evidence from General Flynn’s attorneys, made this man, a General, who had given 30 + years of service to OUR Country lose so much to protect his family when there was no need to, what the hell do you think they could possibly do to ANY of us? I hope and pray he and his family get all that is due to them through this ‘nothing but true crap’ just because of the hatred towards OUR President. JUSTICE had best be served! “Water-Gate” never came close to this and ALL those involved should be looking for some damn good lawyers by now. It’s time for you to spend some of that ‘Clinton Foundation ‘ money you all think you’ve earned for protecting and breaking all the laws you have to get your Queen Hillary elected! The rest of you serving in Government better get this one right or you may have something far worse on your hands then you ever dreamed of? The People of The United States of America are fed up with THE SHIT!

  9. Everyone of these government lawyers should be arrested for lying to the judge. Disbarred for corruption and crimes against a innocent man. Obama should be arrested for his part in this scam against a good man. Just sickening to see the damage Obama did to people and America.

  10. All 144000 of them. Must be predestint ion of some kind. It’s a xycle. Prosperity makes people fat, lazy & stupid (evil). Hard times necessarily come before the restoration.

    Leftists are traitors & losers from start to finish even when they act nice or appear to win, they lose.

  11. James Comey started it, Andrew Weisman tanked it. This has Weisman’s stamp all over it. If you read Sidney Powell’s “License to Lie”, you’ll understand Weisman better. He has to be the most corrupt lawyer in history. Hiding evidence is his hallmark; but for some reason, he never gets sanctioned! He’s still practicing, and he was Mueler’s “pitbull”.
    The stink of this demonrat Trump derangement and what they were willing to do is overwhelming. I hope they all go to prison.
    BTW; I want my money back! They all should have their bank accounts and any and all assets, including personal residences and pensions, seized and sold to pay back to the American people for the taxpayer money they wasted on this enormous witch hunt.
    Eye for and eye. What they did to Flynn should happen to them.
