USDOJ attorney Brandon Van Grack corrupt or cog in wheel of corruption?, Barr put Grack in charge of FARA, Does this bode well for Barr Durham investigation?
“Given the material defense counsel has requested, which remains outstanding, Mr. Van Grack’s denial that further Brady material exists is patently absurd. It demonstrates arrogance and utter contempt for the letter and the spirit of this Court’s explicit order, the rule of Brady v. Maryland, and the protections guaranteed to defendants by the U.S. Constitution.”…US v. Flynn motion to compel production of Brady Material
“Prosecutors Brandon Van Grack of the Justice Department’s national security division, who was formerly on Mr. Mueller’s team, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, of Washington, provided little explanation as to why they were not turning over the transcripts.”…Pittsburgh Post-Gazette June 1, 2019
“Former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as much as admitted the FBI’s intent to set up Mr. Flynn on a criminal false statement charge from the get-go.”…Attorney Sidney Powell November 4, 2019
Is US Justice Department attorney Brandon Van Grack corrupt or simply caught up in a web of corruption that permeates the Justice Dept., i.e. guilty by association?
Examine the following:
Grack is an Obama donor.
He was hired by the Justice Dept. in 2010, early in the Obama admin.
He was part of Mueller’s team.
Van Grack is the lead prosecutor in the General Flynn case.

“Prosecutors Brandon Van Grack of the Justice Department’s national security division, who was formerly on Mr. Mueller’s team, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, of Washington, provided little explanation as to why they were not turning over the transcripts.”
United States v. Michael T. Flynn Supplemental Status Report September 30, 2019.
“Even more troubling, Mr. Van Grack was determined that Mr. Flynn would testify in the Rafiekian case that he had knowingly signed a false FARA registration, even though Mr. Van Grack knew that was not true and Mr. Flynn had not agreed to that in the course of his plea agreement. Mr. Flynn’s refusal to get on the witness stand and lie for the government on that point prompted a heated tirade from Mr. Van Grack with Mr. Flynn’s lead counsel, in which Mr. Van Grack claimed Mr. Flynn had agreed to plead to a knowing and intentional false FARA filing. Dkt. 98-1.
In our endless document review, we now have a draft of the statement of offense that proves the contrary, showing similar language deleted. The absence of that language from the statement of offense or any charge of a false filing did not deter Mr. Van Grack from doubling down.
Enraged that Mr. Flynn reject their demand to lie, the prosecutors in the EDVA (Mr. James Gillis, Mr. Evan Turgeon, and Mr. John Gibbs, with Mr. Van Grack’s oversight) retaliated with an ex parte gag order and sealed filing on July 3. For the first time, the prosecutors claimed that Mr. Flynn was a co-conspirator. They put Michael Flynn Jr. on the witness list for the Rafiekian trial.”
FLYNN REPLY IN SUPPORT OF HIS MOTION TO COMPEL PRODUCTION OF BRADY MATERIAL AND TO HOLD THE PROSECUTORS IN CONTEMPT
October 24, 2019.
“3. Mr. Van Grack’s Productions of Flynn 302s Were Incomplete and Misleading. But it gets worse. When Mr. Van Grack made his first official production to former counsel of any actual documents (other than the (final) Flynn 302 produced on Nov. 22, 2017) on March 13, 2018—all of which should have been produced before Mr. Flynn pleaded guilty—Mr. Van Grack made it sound like there was only one 302:
This is false. On May 25, 2018, Mr. Van Grack dribbled out another production—again denying any obligation to do so under Brady or the Court’s Standing Order. This included a draft 302 dated February 10, 2017, as if it were the only other one. That was also misleading. After former counsel called Mr. Van Grack, on June 1, 2018, the government produced two more drafts of the 302—these dated February 11, 2017, and February 14, 2017. Mr. Van Grack did not explain why all these intervening drafts were not produced in March, nor how they suddenly turned up, and there are material differences— especially from February 10 to February 11. Ex. 11. Obviously, there are drafts of the 302, including an original draft in the files or subfiles of the Sentinel System of the FBI dating back to January 24, 2017, or so—the date of the actual interview of Mr. Flynn. Brady requires the production of the original 302, all drafts, notes, recordings, statements, and all testimony of the two agents along with all participants in any of the meetings to plan the ambush of Mr. Flynn “to keep him relaxed.” If they are not there, then they were wrongfully destroyed. Either way, the government must be held to account.”
From Attorney Sidney Powell November 5, 2019.
just advised by letter that he got the authors of the raw notes backwards!! Since March 2018 when first disclosed! All the more reason to require originals of everything without redactions, handwriting samples, all 302s, audit trail, metadata-entire file!”
From Gateway Pundit.
“SHOCKING: Corrupt Mueller Team Official Brandon Van Grack Is Now In Charge of DOJ’s FARA Unit Used to Spy on Republican”
“Van Grack was one of the lawyers on Mueller’s team that handled the Flynn investigation, set-up and guilty plea.
He is overseeing Flynn’s case in court.”
“What CNN Left Out in the report on Van Grack– He led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying. And Van Grack donated to the Obama campaign.
Following the corrupt investigation of the Trump campaign and Trump administration Van Grack was promoted to head the DOJ’s FARA Unit.
This is the same unit used to target and ruin Republican officials in 2016 and it is the same unit Democrats are hoping to use to indict President Trump’s Attorney Rudy Giuliani.”
William Barr became Attorney General in February of 2019.
Brandon Van Grack was put in charge of FARA in March 2019.
Perhaps Barr was not aware of Grack’s corrupt activities then.
Is Barr aware of them now and is Brandon Van Grack under scrutiny as part of the Barr Durham investigations?
Brandon Van Grack corrupt?
