Sara Carter is reporting that prosecutors in the case against Michael Flynn are asking the court for three more weeks to examine the voluminous documentation that they received from Flynn's former legal team. That documentation goes to the issue of a conflict of interest that Flynn's current attorney, Sidney Powell, maintains cannot be remedied.
What's not clear is how this works with the re-examination of the Flynn case that AG Barr ordered. Barr brought in an outside US Attorney--Jeffrey Jensen of St. Louis--to handle that re-examination.
Meanwhile, as Trump's team continues to clean house in the Intel agencies and at DoJ, the Durham investigation continues toward the point in time when we were told to expect developments: late Spring to early Summer.
this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.

Flynn Case: Government Asks For Three Week Delay

I have been wondering what ever happened to the Flynn case. My guess is Coronavirus delayed it. I'm glad it's still being worked on.ReplyDelete
No, I don't think coronavirus had anything to do with it. The prosecution is trying to dig themselves out of a hole, and it's hard work.Delete
An early key moment in the history of the Flynn case was the Logan Act nonsense.ReplyDelete
The idea then was that Flynn was vulnerable to Russianb blackmail because Russia's Ambassador Kislyak knew and could prove that Flynn had violated the USA's Logan Act.
That accusation was Sally Yates' idea, and it worked. She put the wheels into motion to remove Flynn from his position as National Security Advisor.
Absolutely, Mike. That's why I characterized as 'self serving' the recent reports about how upset Sally Yates was with Comey's legally aggressive (albeit tactically devious) interview strategy of Flynn. We basically know next to nothing about what Durham is up to, but these reports do suggest that Yates may feel under pressure by Durham. Recall that she signed off on one of the bogus Carter Page FISAs, so she's in on both Flynn and the Russia Hoax more generally.Delete
Mike - Great point on the Logan Act.ReplyDelete
I see it as evidence as an all hands on deck to take care of Flynn.
This long article explains why Flynn was such a threat:
Ray, I'm working my way through that right now--writing takes a lot of time! Really liking it.Delete
I finished the article last night. I thought it was very valuable, great piece of work. The one thing I disagree with is the assessment of Flynn. IMO, as I've often maintained, Flynn exhibited very poor judgment in getting involved with the Turkish angle while advising the Trump campaign. As we're currently seeing, the Turks are not trustworthy partners and taking sides (for money) in their politics while seeking a presidential NS appointment was simply bad judgment. Of course he was framed--he should have seen that coming.Delete
Flynn's former attorneys file notice that they failed to turn over emails and two pages of handwritten notes to his new attorney. Are looking to see if there is more they "missed" ...
LOL! SHTF time approaching?Delete
