A federal judge has indefinitely postponed the sentencing for General Michael Flynn after he filed to remove his guilty plea and shocking court documents have been released showing how the federal government “lied” and “framed” him.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled on Monday that Flynn’s sentencing hearing had been cancelled “until further order of the court.” It was previously scheduled to take place on Feb. 27.
Last month, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell filed a 27-page brief detailing the “egregious government misconduct” that took place in the case against Flynn, which was related to the dubious Russian collusion investigation. Powell is calling for dismissal of the case “in the interest of justice.” The decision by Sullivan shows that there may be serious merit to her explosive claims.
Powell produced evidence in the filing which showed that the feds lied to Flynn, misled him, “framed” him, obscured evidence that could have helped him build his case, and showed “contempt for the law at every turn” in how they went about their investigation and prosecution of the retired three-star Army general.
Flynn has also reconsidered his guilty plea, alleging that the plea deal that he signed onto was offered to him in bad faith.
“In truth, I never lied,” Flynn wrote in a his motion to withdraw his guilty plea that was filed last month, according to Fox News. “My guilty plea has rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened.”
Powell maintains that her client is completely innocent and intends to prove it in court. She wrote that the “IG Report is replete with exculpatory information that, had it been known to Mr. Flynn, he never would have pled guilty.”
The IG report was released by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz in Dec. 2019 after Flynn had already taken the plea deal. It showed systemic incompetence and corruption in how the feds handled the special counsel into Russian collusion.
“Flynn is one of the four original targeted by Crossfire Hurricane and unmasked by previous administration because of ‘his purported ties to Russia,'” Powell wrote in the filing.
Powell replaced Flynn’s previous lawyers, who she alleges were likely in on the deep state scam to railroad Flynn. They “grossly misled” Flynn, which caused a miscarriage of justice, according to her filing. Flynn may have a fresh shot at receiving justice because of these new revelations.
“The government’s suppression of evidence, drove a three-star-military veteran of multiple conflicts to plead to a crime he did not believe he committed. It now raises the foremost intelligence officer of this generation, a combat veteran and war hero, will spend time behind bars. This is not only manifestly unjust, it makes a mockery of Brady [exonerating evidence] and due process,” Powell said in the filing.
Flynn may be able to restore his damaged reputation, and show the deep state that there are limits to how they can exert their illicit power to crush their political opponents.
Congressman Claims Deep State May Have Planted Fake News about Russians in Afghanistan
This is likely the newest Russian hoax.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) believes that certain deep state actors may have planted fake news about the Russians paying Taliban personnel to kill U.S. soldiers.
The story was reported by the New York Times last week, and President Donald Trump has been thrown through the ringer because he supposedly did nothing about it.
The White House has disputed the facts of the story, and Banks told Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM that he thinks this may be the next phase of the Russia scam that has been perpetrated since before Trump was sworn into office.
Banks explained on the show that “initial tactical reports often require additional collection and validation,” and he is angered that the work by the Times could prevent the truth from ever being known.
“Gina Haspel, the CIA director, released a statement, released her first-ever statement, she’s never done this before, but she released a statement saying that the intelligence was not convincing enough that it rose to the point that they took it seriously that should brief the president about the alleged bounties on American troops or American civilians serving in Afghanistan,” Banks said.
“To your point, it’s hit pieces like this that make it much harder for the president to do his job, to get out, to bring our troops home and end the longest war in American history, but also to identify the real threats of the day … the intelligence community spent the last four days focused on refuting this hit piece when they should be focused on the greatest existential threat we face in America today which is combatting the China threat,” he added.
“Democrats want to wear out this Russian-Trump collusion hoax because they want to make hay out of that to divert attention away from the biggest weakness of all from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden corruption issue is that Obama record fo appeasing and turning a blind eye to the nefarious actions of China,” Banks explained. “They don’t want to talk about that; that’s why they want to bring out this tired old Russian narrative that the American people have long moved on from.”
The Pentagon has come out and said that there is not enough evidence for the claim to be corroborated.
“The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan – and around the world – most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats,” Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement given to American Military News on Monday night.
Yet again, it seems the fake news is putting America last by publishing dubious reports that hurt national security just to attack President Trump.
