General Flynn opposition to amicus brief of Attorney Gleeson, Attorney Powell filed June 17, 2020, “Flynn…singled out for a baseless, politically
motivated investigation and prosecution”
“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they call ‘The Resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch.” …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
“Under the separation of powers established by the Constitution, criminal charges are brought by the executive branch and adjudicated by the judiciary. Thus, any actual prosecution of Flynn under federal statutes for perjury would have to be brought by the Department of Justice.”…Attorney Leslie McAdoo Gordon
GENERAL FLYNN’S BRIEF
IN OPPOSITION TO AMICUS
Filed June 17, 2020 by Attorney Sidney Powell.
“Counsel for General Michael Flynn files this brief to comply with this court’s
order of May 19, 2020. However, we hereby preserve all objections briefed in our
Petition for Writ of Mandamus and all prior filings in this court.1 This court exceeded its authority under the Constitution to solicit amici and to appoint an amicus. That chosen amicus has now engaged in a flagrant personal and partisan assault on General Flynn, Attorney General Barr, and the President of the United States.
This court’s friend simply ignores the indisputable, newly-produced evidence
proving that it is General Flynn who was singled out for a baseless, politically
motivated investigation and prosecution. ECF No. 198. In a rarely-mentioned text message the Government has never produced to General Flynn,2 FBI Agent Strzok reveals that [Bill] Priestap “doesn’t want Clapper giving CR cuts [transcripts on Crossfire Razor, the codename for the Flynn operation] to [the Obama] WH. All political, just shows our hand and potentially makes enemies.” (emphasis added). After Lisa Page’s reminder about including it already in the “doc on fri,” Strzok revealed the ultimate problem: “should we[?], particularly to the entirety of the lame duck usic [United States intelligence community] with partisan axes to grind.” (emphasis added).
The irony and sheer duplicity of Amicus’s accusations against the Justice
Department now—which is finally exposing the truth—is stunning. Amicus’s filing is a “wrap-up smear.” It is an affront to the Rule of Law and a raging insult to the citizens of this country who see the abject corruption in this assassination by political prosecution of General Flynn. This court exuviated any appearance of neutrality when it unlawfully appointed Amicus as its own adversary to make these scurrilous arguments.”
