Mike Flynn Withdraws Guilty Plea Due To Government’s ‘Bad Faith, Vindictiveness, And Breach Of Plea Agreement’

1006

One week after federal prosecutors changed their tune in the Michael Flynn case – recommending he serve up to six months in prison for lying to investigators regarding his contacts with a Russian diplomat, the former National Security Adviser withdrew his guilty plea Tuesday afternoon.

In a 24-page court filing, Flynn accuses the government of “bad faith, vindictiveness, and breach of the plea agreement,” and has asked his January 28th sentencing date to be postponed for 30 days.

 

According to Flynn’s counsel, prosecutors “concocted” Flynn’s alleged “false statements by their own misrepresentations, deceit, and omissions.”

“It is beyond ironic and completely outrageous that the prosecutors have persecuted Mr. Flynn, virtually bankrupted him, and put his entire family through unimaginable stress for three years,” the filing continues.

 

Prosecutors initially recommended no jail time over Flynn’s cooperation in the Russiagate probes, however they flipped negative on him after he “sought to thwart the efforts of the government to hold other individuals, principally Bijan Rafiekian, accountable for criminal wrongdoing.”

The 67-year-old Rafiekian, an Iranian-American and Flynn’s former business partner, was charged with illegally acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign government. Prosecutors accused Flynn of failing to accept responsibility and “complete his cooperation” – as well as “affirmative efforts to undermine” the prosecution of Rafiekian.”

  1. Good for you General Flynn. 33 year veteran being smeared because he could see the Iran Deal for what it’s worth. All for Obama’s legacy and the cornerstone for the Iran terrorist regime. To devastate this Fine Military Man to bankruptcy, to go after his Son, who did NOT lie to the FBI, all for a coup. All because General Flynn, who has been in the field for years knew the future dangers of this deal, and wanted to defend the Military, but also the USA from “domestic” terrorism within the Government.

    Watching Laura Ingraham, Congressman Devin Nunes stated that he IS a fact witness that could prove General Flynn did NOTHING wrong other than knowing how the swamp worked and took the heat to protect his Son, who did nothing.

    We all know about Carter Page and the devastation brought on by Comey’s lies. But let’s not forget General Flynn, who Mueller smeared with his lies, or shall we say hiding evidence to spin it to try to take down President Trump.

    The damage to those that are innocent, President Trump, General Flynn, Carter Page, must have justice. And those that did the damage should be held accountable.

    My thoughts are with you General Flynn. Learning more and more about this Obama’s Legacy Iran deal, I can see why Obama went to President Trump and stated that you would NOT be the man for the job of National Security. President Trump, though did feel you were the Man for the Job, so they had to take you down. And the only way was to threaten your Son. But it’s ok to work a deal with a child predator, all to spin the “coup” agenda. Disgusting.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    • Looks like more of the Democratic parties shenanigans.
      Flinn’s whole case should be thrown out and investigated by honest people.

      • 100% Agree. He shouldn’t have had to go through all this anguish in the first place. All because of crooked cops at the top and hiding what other FBI and Congressman, who fought for the truth. How can it take 2 months to get redated off a report. But hopefully that time was well spent (Thank you Congressman Nunes and Team) and can be used to clear an innocent man.

        Yep Mueller is a dirty cop, along with Comey. They should look into Wray as well.

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    Lie, Lie, Lie. Well, what do you expect from a “coup” player. Though IG Report was very revealing, was truly disappointed that the IG Horowitz stated that there “could” be bias. The report proves the political bias ten fold. The whole thing STINKS of it.

    And the footnote hidden where it states Mr. Durham agrees with the findings of non-bias? Glad that Mr. Durham came out and made a statement that he doesn’t.

    Until Mr. Durham has put out his report, these “coup” members will walk around freely spewing their lies, while innocent men like the President, General Flynn and Carter Page deal with their lies. And let’s not forget the men and women who are actually trying to represent the American citizens and the walls constantly put up trying to expose these lies.

    The Mueller Report was shown for what it was by our Congressmen in the House. The Impeachment sham has been shown for what it was, all a “house of Cards” by our Congressmen. They have done their jobs, through all the obstacles put up. Congress DID their job. Now it’s time for the DOJ to do theirs. Swamp creatures need to held accountable.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    Justice was always blind, but it seems that the blindfold has been taken off to placate the criminal element. And coming from someone raised by someone who’s mentality was to “hurt” to get his socialists ways heard. Instead of going to jail, he raised a mini-me to get into the DA office to be able to protect those with the same “I hate America” attitude, spitting on the Constitution that they have been trying to shred for 60 years.

    Hmmm…. isn’t it amazing. Just like Quid Pro Quo Joe and demanding firing a prosecutor that would actually look into corruption.

    We need to fight to put back that blindfold on Justice. NO one is above the law. Unfortunately with those States that elect their DA’s, George Soroass and criminals from the 60’s have found a way to help their criminal element. Disgusting.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  4. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/01/15/nancy-pelosi-announces-schiff-nadler-and-others-as-impeachment-trial-managers/

    lol, Nancy’s dream team? And “pencil neck” schiff is leading the way? Can he be questioned by the Senate I wonder for HIS involvement with the whistleblower? Or is he going to use his management position to hide behind. Just like he made the lawyer give HIS report to the House. Hey maybe Schiff can do what the lawyer did. Be the manager and than switch seats and be a witness?

    And regarding Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), I guess he’s there because he really KNOWS about leaking information. His Foreign National IT had lots to do with “collecting” information from the DNC and the DCCC.

    This is no dream team, but a socialist nightmare, which is wasting time and taxpayer money all because this is being used to smear President Trump because they HAVE no candidate. Plus hide what the Nancy Dream team really did AGAINST the American People.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

      Hey Nancy, your Iranian terrorist buddies are doing the same thing you are with your Russian collusion, lol. With you, it’s all about the Russians. Now with the Iranian terrorist regime, it’s all about USA again.

      The only thing Russian here is the Russian missile, bought with the load of cash Obama gave Iranian terrorist that took down that plane.

      And with your delusion collusion, President Trump had NOTHING to do with the Russians. Go see Obama, Hilary Clinton and Biden. It was on their watch the Russians were hacking.

      And regarding taking down that plane, was this Kerry talking to your terrorist buddies again, finding out how to LIE again,because the cornerstone of the Iran terrorist deal was blown to Hell by our Great Military?

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  5. To both real democrats and not DNC l socialist types and true Conservatives and not RINOs just look at this communist takeover being fostered on our country.
    What we know is that Obama gave $150 billion to the Iranian Terrorist organization through democratic congress and Democratic Congress refuses $5 billion for a defensive border fence. As of this morning a projection placed socialist (communist?) Bernie Sanders as probable candidate for Democratic Presidential Candidate! Rumors are that Communist? George Soros is bank rolling these things. The Trump impeachment is bogus and started even before he could do anything impeachable! This also from the Democratic house.
    There are efforts by Democrats to remove guns from the people. The following took guns and killed millions. Communist Pol Pot, Mao Tse Tung, Joseph Stallon, Fidel Castro. Nazi Adolph Hitler. Not to mention that socialist countries cater to their very rich while the populace go hungry.
    The attack on General Mike Flynn is beginning to look much like the false Russian Collusion claim on Donald Trump. Also Democratic effort. Who knows how many corrupt lawyers, judges and law enforcement people who have bern bought off.
    As I write I even wonder how many of us who are pointing out the coincidental? aspects of this may find ourselves just like Flynn.
    Are we so dumb to not put an end to this through the coming elections and place true Americans in to every office.
    I hesitate to suggest we do not vote Demoncrats, but the mere fact that they have followed this political treason and were not willing to remove the leadership suggests they be well vetted before they can be trusted. A start would be a whole scale rejection of all of the illegal activity and demands for arrest and trials!

  6. It is beyond sickening what the obamanation administration officials did to try and railroad President Trump, Mike Flynn, and many others. Seditious and Treasonous acts were committed by The Democrats yet none of them have been held accountable for their crimes. There is plenty of evidence that this went all the way to barry seotoro. Past time these Democrats are held accountable for what they did with the illegal spying up to the attempted coups.
    The obamanation administration was the administration the founding fathers warned us about.

  7. Prosecutors across the country step on people’s rights to rig trials, all the while with no accountability for their actions.
    This should ne brought to a halt at all levels of the court.
