Finding: Flynn Belongs in Prison, Barr Abused Power


Guardian: A former federal judge appointed to review the justice department’s motion to dismiss criminal charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn has found that the government’s request should be denied because there is “clear evidence of a gross abuse of prosecutorial power”.

Former US district judge John Gleeson said in a filing on Wednesday that the government “has engaged in highly irregular conduct to benefit a political ally of the president”.

Gleeson was appointed by US district judge Emmet Sullivan in a special role to weigh in on the case, but it will ultimately be up to Sullivan and potentially an appeals court whether to accept the justice department’s motion to drop the case.

In January, Flynn filed court papers to withdraw his guilty plea, saying federal prosecutors had acted in “bad faith” and broken their end of the bargain when they sought prison time for him.


Initially, prosecutors said Flynn was entitled to avoid prison time because he had cooperated extensively with the government, but the relationship with him grew increasingly contentious in the months before he withdrew his plea, particularly after he hired a new set of lawyers who raised misconduct allegations against the government.

But the justice department filed a motion last month to dismiss the case, saying the FBI had an insufficient basis to question Flynn in the first place and that statements he made during the interview were not material to the broader counterintelligence investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.

  1. Here I would refer to Gene “Chip” Tatum on the history of Barr and Mueller going back to Noriega and the Vatican embassy. Barr is not our friend , and by { our } I mean people of the United States that are the citizens. Barr is a man of particular agendas, and the first and foremost is Rome, a foreign city state. I wouldn’t even hire him as the sheriff of a town of 200.
    He is the primary handler of Trump, and is aborting the law of the US. I refer to Gene Tatum because I personally can vouch for one of his stories as I was on the AF flight line.

    • I would also say, if the American people wanted to defend a General then defend McCrystal before Flynn. The comparison is not equal. I don’t have to like a guy to know he is right.
