General Flynn response to prosecutors, Attorney Sidney Powell filing Nov. 1, 2019, Strzok Page texts: “I made some joke about what F said. Something
patriotic or military.”
“I made some joke about what F said. Something patriotic or military.”…Strzok Page texts
“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
From the Attorney Sidney Powell response filing November 1, 2019 in United States v Michael Flynn:
“As new counsel has made clear from her first appearance, Mr. Flynn will ask this Court to dismiss the entire prosecution based on the outrageous and un-American conduct of law enforcement officials and the subsequent failure of the prosecution to disclose this evidence—which it had in its possession all along—either in a timely fashion or at all. Moreover, the defendant still needs and is still entitled to all the facts in the government’s possession—not just those Mr. Van Grack was forced to provide because they had already leaked into the public
domain. The government’s tactic of disclosing information because it had made its way into the news and the internet is tantamount to no Brady disclosure at all, while its self-serving minimized disclosures were outright deceptive.”
“Despite a polite reminder from this Court that its Brady order is paramount,1 the government’s response depends heavily on its assertion—forty-five times in twenty pages—that Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty, and thirteen assertions that he waived any right to further Brady material.2 As expected, the government touts its many Brady disclosures. What it elides, however, is that its “disclosures” were so limited, misleading, untimely, or deliberately trivialized as to
render them meaningless—and in some instances, outright deceitful. As the Supreme Court has recognized, and which happened in the extreme here, an incomplete response could “represent to the defense that the evidence does not exist” and cause it “to make pretrial and trial decisions on the basis of this assumption.” United States v. Bagley, 473 U.S. 667, 682-83 (1985).”
“The real evidence the government had long suppressed caused a cavalcade of major events—many within mere days of Mr. Flynn’s plea—and all unknown to him before it. Lisa Page, Special Counsel to Deputy Director McCabe, resigned; she had edited Mr. Flynn’s 302 and was part of the small, high-level group that strategically planned his ambush. Lead Agent Peter Strzok was demoted from the Mueller investigation and ultimately fired. Strzok, who had met extensively with McCabe and the high-level, small group, was primarily responsible for creating the only basis for the charge alleged against Flynn. Ex. 1.
The day after Mr. Flynn’s plea, the press exploded with the news of Strzok and Page’s prolific text messages, their affair, and their malice toward President Trump.3 The Inspector General issued a rare statement that he was investigating the entire matter. MTC 23. Bruce Ohr, the fourth highest-ranking member of DOJ, was demoted. Judge Contreras, who accepted Mr. Flynn’s plea only days before, was suddenly and inexplicably recused—only for it to be disclosed
much later that he was a topic of conversation in the Strzok-Page texts because he was a friend of Agent Strzok.4 And, remarkably, DOJ’s Bruce Ohr was demoted a second time. Ex. 1. This is merely a snapshot of the aftershock from the earliest revelations into the public domain and to Mr. Flynn.”
“January 23, the day before the interview, the upper echelon of the FBI met to orchestrate it all. Deputy Director McCabe, General Counsel James Baker, , Lisa Page, Strzok, David Bowdich, Trish Anderson, and Jen Boone strategized to talk with Mr. Flynn in such a way as to keep from alerting him from understanding that he was being interviewed in a criminal investigation of which he was the target. Ex.12. Knowing they had no basis for an investigation,6
they deliberately decided not to notify DOJ for fear DOJ officials would follow protocol and notify White House Counsel. They decided not to tell Flynn their true purpose nor give him 1001 warnings, so as to keep him “relaxed.” They planned not to show him the transcript of his calls to refresh his recollection, nor confront him directly if he did not remember. In short, they planned
to deceive him about the entire scenario, and keep him “unguarded.” Exs. 5, 6; MTC 34.”
“They knew what they were doing was wrong. Lisa Page wrote: “I can feel my heart beating harder, I’m so stressed about all the ways THIS has the potential to go fully off the rails.””
“5. Reporting Back: Flynn’s “Demeanor Was Sure.”
He Was Telling the Truth or Believed He Was Telling the Truth.
The agents returned from interviewing Mr. Flynn, describing their excitement over it, and with a belief contrary to what they expected, that he had been honest with them. After the interview, they briefed it three times. Strzok texted Page: “Describe the feeling, nervousness, excitement knowing we had just heard him denying it all. Knowing we’d have to pivot into asking.
Puzzle round and round about it. Talk about the funny details. Remember what I said that made Andy laugh and ask if he really said that.”
Strzok urged: “Also have some faith in and my assessment. ……. I’m finding it hard to go out on a counterintuitive yet strongly felt ledge with so many competent voices expressing what I feel too: bullsh*t – that doesn’t make sense.  I made some joke about what F said. Something patriotic or military.””
