The government lied, “framed,” hid favorable evidence, and showed “contempt for the law at every turn” in their treatment of Michael Flynn, the retired three-star Army general and former Trump White House national security adviser.
Those charges were contained in a new filing in the government’s case against Flynn. And his attorney, Sidney Powell, was just getting started.
In the 27-page-filing, an add-on to her previous motions, Powell demanded charges be dropped against Flynn based on previously withheld exculpatory documents by the government and the IG report on FISA abuse.
The filing on Flynn’s behalf was possible in part due to the Inspector General’s report on FISA abuse. Powell claimed that the IG report is “replete with information that is exculpatory to Mr. Flynn and damning of the conduct the FBI used against him. Flynn is one of the four original targeted by Crossfire Hurricane and unmasked by previous administration because of ‘his puported ties to Russia.'” Furthermore, the FBI got access to Flynn’s information because of the Carter Page FISA warrant, at least two of which we now know were illegally obtained.
