“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

From the General Michael Flynn
MOTION TO WITHDRAW PLEA OF GUILTY
AND UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR CONTINUANCE.
“Michael T. Flynn (“Mr. Flynn”) hereby moves to withdraw his plea because of the government’s bad faith, vindictiveness, and breach of the plea agreement. See ECF No. 150. Mr. Flynn also requests a continuance of the sentencing date set for January 28, 2020, for thirty days or until February 27, 2020, or such other subsequent day that is convenient to the Court and counsel, and a corresponding extension of time to file any supplemental sentencing memorandum (from January 22, 2020, to February 21, 2020). The continuance is requested to allow time for the government to respond to the most recent aspects of this Motion and for Mr. Flynn to provide the additional briefing he needs to protect the record and his constitutional rights in light of significant developments in the last thirty days.
Mr. Flynn’s counsel conferred with the government about the continuance requested herein beginning the morning of January 10, 2020, and provided a letter yesterday to include as the Certificate of Conference. The government’s timely response is attached as the Certificate of Conference. Since that conference, Mr. Flynn has instructed counsel to request withdrawal of his
plea because of the government’s breach of the plea agreement. Accordingly, pursuant to Puckett v. United States, 556 U.S. 129 (2009),1 Mr. Flynn files this Motion now in the interest of justice.”
