Bungling Bob Mueller's bad day

Retired Army three-star General Michael Flynn may be in like Flynn because federal Judge Emmet Sullivan just told Bungling Bob Mueller to hand over all exculpatory evidence that could clear Flynn.

Appointed by Clinton in 1994, Judge Sullivan takes the law and the Constitution seriously. He threw out the Bush administration's conviction of Republican Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska in 2009 because the prosecutors -- dramatic pause -- withheld exculpatory evidence.



Isn't the Department of Justice's job to seek justice, not necessarily convictions?

Blogger Sara Carter reported Mueller's Team Anti-America has two days to comply.

Carter wrote, "Further, Sullivan is also requesting any documentation regarding the first interviews conducted by former anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok and FBI Agent Joe Pientka -- known by the FBI as 302s -- which were found to be dated more than seven months after the interviews were conducted on Jan. 24, 2017, a violation of FBI policy, say current and former FBI officials familiar with the process. According to information contained in Flynn’s memorandum, the interviews were dated Aug. 22, 2017."

These 302s are supposed to be unassailable, but judging by the sloppiness of Strzok and Pientka, these forms likely are merely CYA for FBI employees. Waiting months to document this means the pair waited until special counsel was appointed to give proof of a Flynn "lie."

Carter reported, "Based on the interview conducted with Strzok and Pientka, Mueller got Flynn to plead guilty to one count of lying regarding his private phone conversations with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. According to numerous sources – both former federal law enforcement officials and persons close to Flynn – the guilty plea appeared to be the only recourse for the retired general, whose finances were depleted from the nearly two-year trial, as well as the Special Counsel’s threats to go after his son, Michael Flynn Jr."

This is fascist. This is bullying. This needs to stop.

I hope Judge Sullivan stops it, but after watching so many people flip, I expect another disappointment on Friday.

But today, Mueller sweats.

Carter quoted someone close to Flynn, "He’s nearing roughly $3 million in legal debt, sell his home, sell his car and is barely able to make ends meet. Almost all his military pension goes to his lawyers and he has not been able to get any new contracts or speaking engagements."

Besides a pardon. President Trump should give Flynn $3 million. Maybe Flynn can sue and Trump can settle for every penny he seeks. That's how liberals do it.

  1. Excellent post at The Federalist, pointing out contradictions and inconsistencies in the FBI chronology.

    Pardon, cash settlement and prosecuting Mueller and his team for misconduct. All of the above would be good.

    1. I'd like to see the judge immediately toss Mueller the Mule and his 17 Dim buddies in jail for contempt of court with no bail while the investigators are investigated by a staff of at least 18 Republicans chosen by Sen Grassley.

      Let the 18 know what it feels like to suddenly sit in jail, no bail, no warning of this so they couldn't hide evidence... walking in the shoes of those they've unjustly convicted.

  3. Have a Gmail account, but can't figure out the Gmail login to stick.... I would hope Flynn would collaborate with Corsi's lawyers SUE for $500 Million - Comey, his buddy Mueller, Susan Rice, Comey, Lisa Page, James Baker, McCabe, Strzok, Clapper & Brennan for RICO, abuse of authority and violation of his 4A Constitution rights for Wiretapping and Unmasking his name of private conversations, Obstruction of Justice and entrapment.

  5. I sure hope he sues and wins. I believe the 302s MUST be completed within 5 days of an interview.

  6. Dr. Jerome Corsi is turning the heat up under Mueller as well. I wonder what he has to show for evidence? I don't believe he would file suit without something to back up his accusation. - Elric

  7. The really strange aspect of this request from the judge is that he buys into the argument that the soon-to-be National Security Director needed to be informed of the dangers of lying to a federal justice official considering that ignorance of the law doesn't forgive violation thereof.

    [FBI Assistant Director] McCabe (the guy who wrote up a memo that same day [that he and Pete Strzok conducted the Flynn interview], which is probably what Sally Yates relied on when she suggested to the White House they needed to fire Flynn) stating very clearly that the FBI agents recognized that Flynn had lied.

    McCabe confirmed the interviewing agent’s initial impression and stated that the “conundrum that we faced on their return from the interview is that although [the agents] didn’t detect deception in the statements that he made in the interview … the statements were inconsistent with our understanding of the conversation that he had actually had with the ambassador.”

    And Flynn’s statement actually makes things worse for himself (and, importantly, for one of the White House cover stories that his firing was immediately precipitated by Don McGahn confronting him with the transcript of his conversation with Kislyak). Flynn’s own sentencing memo makes it clear the FBI Agents were quoting directly from the transcript about what he said.

    FBI officials had also decided that, if “Flynn said he did not remember something they knew he said, they would use the exact words Flynn used, . . . to try to refresh his recollection. If Flynn still would not confirm what he said, . . . they would not confront him or talk him through it.”

    So Flynn would have known, way back when the White House was trying to find excuses to keep him on, precisely what he had been caught saying.

    1. You're basically saying that the higher up the chain of command one is, the less deserving of strict application of the rule of law there should be, and no due process is deserved. I might add that this applies only to people you disagree with. Go jump on a bike with no seat, you stupid drunk.

    2. Flynn was denied Miranda. His statements are inadmissible. Mueller knows this, but he just does not care.

  8. Why do the Democrats no matter what pay for top lawyers, such as for the Pakistani IT house people, and the Republicans let lawfare bankrupt their side.

    $3 million in debt - wow.

    Democrats support their own, Republicans throw their own to the wolves, hoping they will be spared when it’s their turn.

    1. That's one of the things that the GOPe does, or rather doesn't, which really infuriates me.

      The Democrats may be scoundrels, but they're committed to winning; the weasels supposedly on our side can't allow their white gloves to be soiled to fight back.

      It's why I no longer contribute any money to the GOPe.

  10. My guess is the August 2017 302s _replaced_ earlier 302s (that were written in a timely way) but which were later found to be insufficiently incriminating of Flynn.
