General Flynn case: impact of Horowitz IG Fisa Abuse report, Attorney Sidney Powell position of prosecutorial misconduct strengthened, Judge Sullivan outrage?

“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.  It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory. “…Attorney General Barr

“While most of the misconduct identified by the Inspector General was committed in 2016 and 2017 by a small group of now-former FBI officials, the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.”…Attorney General Barr

“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

“How The IG FISA Abuse Report Affects Michael Flynn’s Case”

Monday’s release of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 476-page tome on the Department of Justice and FBI’s misconduct in the lead up to and aftermath of the 2016 presidential election continues to make news—and rightly so. That the DOJ and FBI obtained a surveillance order from a secret court to spy on Carter Page with a series of applications riddled with errors, fabrications, and inexcusable omissions of material fact is shocking. The shocking breadth of the government’s misconduct raises an interesting corollary question: How will Judge Emmet Sullivan react to these devastating revelations?

Sullivan has been hunkered down in his chambers for the last month contemplating (or drafting) his ruling on attorney Sidney Powell’s pending motion in the criminal case against her client, Michael Flynn. Flynn had pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI before Powell took over as his defense counsel. Flynn’s sentencing was postponed to allow Powell to get up to speed in the case. Soon after, Powell filed a motion to compel federal prosecutors to turn over Brady material and other evidence that had been withheld from Flynn’s previous attorneys.

In briefing the motion to compel, in addition to arguing that the government improperly withheld evidence from Flynn, Powell also claimed that “[t]he FBI had no factual or legal basis for a criminal investigation, nor did they have a valid basis for a counter-intelligence investigation against an American citizen, and they all knew it. The evidence the defense requests will eviscerate any factual basis for the plea and reveal conduct so outrageous—if there is not enough already—to mandate dismissal of this prosecution for egregious government misconduct.””

“Now that the report is out, the question is how it will affect Flynn’s case. While the IG report focused mainly on the DOJ and FBI’s conduct related to the four Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications used to obtain an order to surveil Page, Horowitz’s investigation and findings raise two issues of import in the case against Flynn.

First and foremost is the extensive evidence of government misconduct and abuse the IG uncovered. The misconduct was so extensive and egregious that it can only remind Judge Sullivan of the prosecutorial misconduct he witnessed when he presided over the DOJ’s criminal case against the late Sen. Ted Stevens—an investigation and prosecution that Sullivan would later conclude was “permeated by the systematic concealment of significant exculpatory evidence…”

Soon after taking over Flynn’s case, Powell had evoked the Stevens’ prosecution as a comparator, but the IG report adds gravitas to her comparison. When asked about the effect of Horowitz’s report, Powell told The Federalist, “given the stunning lies and conduct by the FBI painfully documented in the report, I would expect Judge Sullivan—at a minimum—to order the production of everything we requested. Yet again, we see the DOJ learned nothing from the Ted Stevens case. Stronger action is required to impress upon the government a rejection of its reprehensible conduct.” Powell added that “far too many in the FBI and DOJ are willing to hide evidence, falsify documents and make up crimes to achieve their objectives—regardless of their motives.”

Before the IG report, Judge Sullivan might have put Powell’s claim of egregious prosecutorial misconduct down to “zealous advocacy.” But it is impossible to contemplate the Sullivan who tossed the Stevens’ case reacting with anything less than outrage to the recent revelations of misconduct. And while the IG report may seem only tangentially related to Flynn, most of the same bad actors were involved in both the Page and Flynn investigations.”

  1. “I would say explosive and I would say, for people at the highest levels of the FBI and at the highest levels of the Justice Department–more important at the Justice Department–it’s going to be devastating. It’s going to ruin careers, it’s going to make people have bar problems”…Joe diGenova on OIG FISA report

  2. The New York Post Editorial Board has named CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower at the heart of the Trump impeachment saga, confirming an October 30 report by RealClearInvestigation’s Paul Sperry which has been widely cited in subsequent reports.

  3. CW………
    ………..and a mountain of BULLSH-T is beginning to collapse. Put on your gas mask!!!

  4. ………AND…….
    ……..VERY SOON THE PREVALENT ATMOSPHERE IN, AND AROUND WASHINGTON DC COULD BE THAT OF BULLSH-T. THE STENCH WILL BE SICKENING. HAR HAR……..GOOD FOR WHAT AILS THEM !!!

  5. AND I PRAY……….
    ……….THAT A FULL BLOWN CRIMINAL ADJUDICATION WILL FOLLOW FOR EACH AND EVERY POS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE ATTEMPTED OVERTHROW OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. ALL PARTICIPANTS NEED TO BE VIGOROUSLY PROSECUTED, SEVERLY FINED, FOLLOWED BY LENGTHY SLAMMER VACATIONS……..PERHAPS EVEN WORSE ! IF THIS IS NOT DONE THEN OUR COUNTRY IS ALREADY LOST.

  6. AND HOPEFULLY…….
    ………JUDGE SULLIVAN WOULD BE SEATED AS THE PREVALING JUSTICE OVER THE ENTIRE ADJUDICATION OF ALL WHO ARE EVENTUALLY PROSECUTED.

  7. AND …….
    ……..a few minutes ago I read that Mr. BLOOMERBURGER has stated that he will close all coal fired power plants. With that assertion he will have placed a noose about his own neck. He has significantly damaged his own campaign with respect to his credibility……..particularly in coal mining country……….which involves a number of states.

  8. REALITY………..
    …………you can close all of the coal fired power generating plants on earth, and you WILL NOT CHANGE ANYTHING except drive the cost of power generation through the roof. SIMPLETONS ARE WHAT THEY ARE. MOTHER NATURE GENERATES MORE GREENHOUSE GAS IN 5 MINUTES THAN DOES ALL COUNTRIES ON EARTH COMBINED. EVERYTIME A VOLCANO ERUPTS OR BURPS TRILLIONS OF CUBIC FEET OF CARBON DIOXIDE GOES INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. NOW ALL WE NEED IS A FEW OF THE KNOW IT ALL (ALLEGED) SCIENTISTS TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STOP MOTHER NATURE FROM DOING HER WORK. WHEN ALL CARBON DIOXIDE IS FINALLY STOPPED FROM GOING INTO THE ATMOSPHERE THE DEATH OF PLANET EARTH WILL BEGIN……ALONG WITH ALL LIVING ORGANISMS. CARBON DIOXIDE IS ESSENTIAL TO THE GROWTH OF GREEN THINGS A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF WHICH IS PRODUCE. (HUMAN FOOD), AND LUMBER WHICH COMES FROM TREES, ETC. BUT YES HUMANITY MIGHT BE CONTRIBUTING TO THE WORLDWIDE LEVEL OF CARBON DIOXIDE., BUT HUMANITY IS STILL NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTION. THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTOR IS STILL MOTHER NATURE. YES ALL PEOPLE ON EARTH COULD GO BACK TO THE HORSE AND BUGGY, OR TRADE THEIR CAR FOR A BICYCLE, TAKE ALL AIRCRAFT OUT OF THE AIR, STOP ALL TRAINS, SHUT DOWN ALL GAS FIRED HEATING OF HOMES AND INDUSTRIALO BUILDINGS. OF COURSE YOU WILL LOWER THE AMOUNT OF CARBON MONOXIDE GOING INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.

  9. AND TONIGHT……….
    ……….Alan Dershowitz confirmed that the SCOTUS is going to hear certain aspects of the impeachment articles. I have a gut feeling that before it is over the entire impeachment mountain of BULLSH-T will be stacked next to the US SUPREME COURT……….I seriously doubt that the supremes will allow the stench to stink up the SCOTUS. I believe they will DROP THE HAMMER on the matter and it will be FINISHED. BUT the raving LUNATIC AL GREEN has promised that another impeachment inquiry will begin immediately if the supreme court throws the impeachment in the trash barrel. The judicial arm exists to among everything else intervene into such inter department squabbles like PHONY IMPEACHMENTS.

  10. AND………..
    ………..the dizzy Al Green, and all the rest of his kind need to be flushed down the toilet of the DNC. It is rabid looney toons like him who are causing most of the procedural problems with the House. People like him, Mzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Pelosi, etc are taking the DEMOCRATIC PARTY so far to the left that it might never recover. My last DEMOCRATIC VOTE was for JFK. He too had his problems, but I respected his Navy service during WW2, and for the most part of his viewpoints at the time. Not all of the Kennedy klan enjoyed the admiration of American society. Everybody I am sure will remember TEDDY, and his (ALLEGED ACCIDENT) “AHHHHEEEEEMMMMMM” wherein Mary Jo Kopechne lost her life. When TEDDY was finally buried I felt NO PITY. He was DESPISED by a lot of people. I was, and still am among them.
