US v Michael Flynn update April 10, 2020, Former defense counsel Covington & Burling provides documents “not previously transferred to successor counsel”

“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

And I’ve now found a witness who says the original 302 did in fact say that Flynn was honest with the agents.”...Attorney Sidney Powell

“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




“Covington & Burling LLP (“Covington”) submits this Supplemental Notice to provide information to the Court about the transfer of the case file to successor counsel. On July 25, 2019, Covington & Burling LLP filed a Notice Regarding Transfer of Case File to Defendant’s New Counsel (Doc. 99). That Notice informed the Court that Covington had transferred its working case file in this case to new counsel within days of the termination of its representation
of Mr. Flynn, and that we had then turned to identifying, collecting and transferring a large body of emails, text messages, handwritten notes, time records, voicemails, hard copy documents, and other records that were not maintained in that working case file during the ordinary course of
business. Having finished that process, we stated that “the firm’s transfer of its case file to General Flynn’s new counsel is now complete.”

In reviewing materials in response to the Court’s March 6, 2020 Order (Doc. 174) to respond to Mr. Flynn’s specific allegations in his Supplemental Motion to Withdraw Plea of Guilty (Doc. 160), however, we have found emails and two pages of handwritten notes that were not previously transferred to successor counsel. With respect to the emails, this appears to have resulted from errors in the process of collecting and searching electronic materials that were not contained in the working case file. The two pages of notes appear to have been inadvertently missed during the file transfer process. Today, we made a supplemental transfer to Mr. Flynn’s current counsel of the emails and notes identified to date as not having been transferred previously. We are in the process of working with our information technology personnel, as
expeditiously as possible, to determine what other materials were not captured by the prior electronic searches and to collect and transfer them promptly to Mr. Flynn’s current counsel. We will apprise the Court when this is completed and will provide any further information that the Court requires.”


From Sara Carter:

“Flynn’s new defense team is combing through the new trove of documents, suggesting that the appropriate action by the DOJ would be to dismiss Flynn’s case entirely based on egregious government misconduct.

“It’s an interesting new production of documents from the Flynn file. It will be even more interesting to see what the firm has to say about them. We are really looking forward to a hearing in court on all the issues that will exonerate General Flynn,” said Powell, who spoke to SaraACarter.com.

“Meanwhile, the government still refuses to produce the original 302 and the DOJ memo of January 30, 2017 that exonerated him of any Russia issue, and it still refuses to dismiss the case because of the egregious government misconduct from the inception of this persecution—including slipping an FBI Agent secretly into a presidential briefing in August 2016—before the election—to collect information on nominee Trump and General Flynn,” she added. “The country and Justice would be best served if the DOJ would take responsibility for these outrageous actions and the deliberate attempted destruction of an honorable man. The agents who interviewed him knew he was honest with them.  They later altered the 302 until it was approved by Andrew McCabe.”

Last week, a status report was filed by prosecutors to delay the anticipated April 3 status report hearing to April 24. Justice Department prosecutors contend that the documents provided by Flynn’s former legal counsel “are voluminous, span numerous topics that arose during Covington’s 30-month representation of Mr. Flynn , and include many pages of sometimes difficult-to-decipher handwritten notes.””
