Sidney Powell for Michael Flynn request for Joseph Mifsud data and other Brady material, Government response October 29, 2019, “not…material to the defendant’s guilt”???
“Mr. McCabe pointed to Mr. Flynn’s “very public interactions with Vladimir Putin and other Russians.” These “interactions” seem to have arisen from the work of CIA/FBI operatives Stefan Halper and Joseph Mifsud”…Sidney Powell motion October 25, 2019
“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October 23, 2019
Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray
I guess the prosecutors in the US v Michael Flynn case are desperate (or just corrupt and covering each other’s asses).
A pre law or for that matter average middle school student could blow their latest argument out of the water.
Attorney Sidney Powell will.
And the judge, if not too corrupt, should see it as another prosecution ploy to subvert justice.
From the motions:
“The United States of America, by and through its undersigned counsel, respectfully files this response to defendant Michael Flynn’s Motion to Produce Newly Discovered Brady Evidence, United States v. Flynn, 17-cr-232 (Doc. 124) (D.D.C. Oct. 15, 2019). In the motion, the defendant requests information pertaining to two phones that allegedly “were used by Mr.Joseph Mifsud” and are allegedly in the possession of the government. Id. at 2. According to the
defendant, the phones contain information on individuals tasked against the defendant as early as 2014. Id. 1
The requested materials are not favorable and material to the defendant’s guilt or punishment, or even relevant to this criminal case.”
“In an extraordinary reversal, the defendant now claims that he is innocent of the criminal charge in this case. See, e.g., Reply at 2 (“When the Director of the FBI, and a group of his close associates, plot to set up an innocent man and create a crime . . . .”). For the first time, the defendant represents to this Court that he “was honest with the agents [on January 24, 2017] to the best of his recollection at the time.” Reply at 23. He makes this claim despite having admitted his guilt, under oath, before two federal judges (including this Court). The defendant also argues—based almost entirely on evidence previously provided in discovery—that the government engaged in “conduct so shocking to the conscience and so inimical to our system of justice that it requires the dismissal of the charges [sic] for outrageous government conduct.”
Reply at 2. The Reply then seeks a new category of relief, that “this Court . . . dismiss the entire prosecution for outrageous government misconduct.”1
Reply at 32.”
From Sidney Powell’s motion filed October 25, 2019.
The Mueller Report established that there was no conspiracy between anyone in the Trump campaign and Russia. It is also apparent now, or will be upon the release of the FISA report of the Inspector General, that the FBI and DOJ had no legal basis to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page or to investigate Mr. Flynn.13 Yet, the government wants us to accept its word that the defense has everything to which it is entitled. Fortunately Brady exists to protect the accused
“from the prosecutor’s private deliberations, as the chosen forum for ascertaining the truth about criminal accusations.” Kyles v. Whitley, 514 U.S. 419, 440 (1995).
While Flynn was cooperating extensively on all issues the Special Counsel wanted to address, the government has trickled out productions over the last year that reveal many things. Ex. 15. Some of the most notable include : (i) the original notes of the agents differ materially from the 302s; (ii) there were material alterations to the 302s to set up the “false statements,” and (iii)
the government has extensive reports of Mr. Flynn’s briefings and debriefings on all his foreign contacts—including his Russia trip and his meeting with Turkish officials—giving lie yet again to the public pretext of the FBI “investigation” of Mr. Flynn. Further, what is still a heavily redacted 302 for former Agent Strzok, since January 2017, the government knew, but still has not disclosed the full statements and notes that show Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said the interview of Mr. Flynn was “problematic,” and she was “unclear” why the FBI was investigating or interviewing Mr. Flynn at all.”
“12 Mr. McCabe pointed to Mr. Flynn’s “very public interactions with Vladimir Putin and other Russians.” These “interactions” seem to have arisen from the work of CIA/FBI operatives Stefan Halper and Joseph Mifsud, and bookings made by Mr. Flynn’s American speakers’ bureau,
Leading Authorities (which books engagements for countless former government officials and prominent people). Leading Authorities booked him for three events with “Russian connections”: one in Moscow for RT and two in Washington. All were well attended by prominent persons from
around the world because of the important issues discussed and the presence of other recognized experts on the programs. See Ex. 14; MTC 4, 16.
Mifsud was present at the RT dinner in Moscow, and it is his cell phones recently obtained by the government that are expected to confirm that he was working for “western intelligence.” Dkt. 124.
Stefan Halper is a known long-time operative for the CIA/FBI. He was paid exorbitant sums by the FBI/CIA/DOD through the Department of Defense Department’s Office of Net Assessment in 2016. His tasks seem to have included slandering Mr. Flynn with accusations of having an affair with a young professor (a British national of Russian descent) Flynn met at an official dinner
at Cambridge University when he was head of DIA in 2014. Flynn has requested the records of Col. James Baker because he was Halper’s “handler” in the Office of Net Assessment in the Pentagon, and ONA Director Baker regularly lunched with Washington Post Reporter David Ignatius. Baker is believed to be the person who illegally leaked the transcript of Mr. Flynn’s calls to Ignatius. The defense has requested the phone records of James Clapper to confirm his contacts with Washington Post reporter Ignatius—especially on January 10, 2017, when Clapper told Ignatius in words to the effect of “take the kill shot on Flynn.” It cannot escape mention that the press has long had transcripts of the Kislyak calls that the government has denied to the defense.
