MULTI UPDATES: Big Flynn Development?
To my mind it seems very unusual that Flynn should change lawyers at this very late stage in the proceedings. I can't begin to say what's up. After all, Flynn was recommended no jail time and has vociferously maintained his guilt--under oath. I've always thought that Flynn was poorly served by his lawyers, Eric Holder's firm. Wait and see what develops.
NEW - General Flynn is getting new lawyers. Flynn "is terminating Covington & Burling LLP as his counsel and has already retained new counsel for this matter" Interesting development at this stage...
With the information we have, can't be 100% certain the transcripts were produced to Judge Sullivan. (Leaning that way, however.) We'll see. Court Order below. The Motion for Leave to File Documents Under Seal isn't on public docket.
Flynn "volunteering" info that he and Kushner had a "sensitive meeting" w/ the Russian Ambassador at Trump Tower is significant -- It may show why Strzok thought he was telling the truth: because he was volunteering - and not hiding - the extent of his contacts w/ the Russians.
