Flynn should sue and settle for $10 million

Obama and his posse of henchman from his thug administration framed an innocent man -- Lieutenant General Michael Flynn -- in the hope of flipping him to incriminate President Donald John Trump. To get justice and make himself whole again, General Flynn and his lawyer, Sidney Powell, need to use an old liberal trick called sue and settle.

Ballotpedia's definition is, "Sue and settle (sometimes hyphenated as sue-and-settle) is a term used to describe cases in which a federal agency is sued by an interested party, declines to defend itself in court, and negotiates a settlement with the plaintiff in a non-adversarial process. Through sue and settle, outside groups sue an agency in order to reach a settlement on terms favorable to the regulatory goals of both. These settlements may require the agency to issue a rule on a particular subject or within a certain timeline.

"Sue and settle practices have frequently occurred in response to environmental lawsuits involving the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). Scott Pruitt, former EPA administrator under President Donald Trump (R), issued a directive in October 2017 that ended the practice of sue and settle at the EPA."

Flynn and Powell can sue for, oh, $100 million and President Trump could agree to an out-of-court settlement of $10 million. He can claim to save taxpayers $90 million while General Flynn sails away with $7 million after paying a contingency fee to Powell.

I prefer this method to being awarded money by Congress or the president because this approach also would expose to the greater public the sue and settle trick liberal lobbyists when they have a liberal in the White House.

Plus the wattle quivering indignation by the pinheads on the left would be laugh-aloud fun. Purple rage would engulf them. Heck, we might get another impeachment out of the deal. Fake conservatives like Mittens Romney can fret and wring their hands about setting a dangerous precedent. The hypocrisy from liberals like him entertains me now.

Make no mistake, what happened to General Flynn was not funny. It was a national travesty. Shame on all those who defend this persecution and abuse of power.

Judicial Watch said, "We commend the heroic work of General Flynn’s legal team, led by Sidney Powell, which exposed the criminal conduct by FBI and DOJ officials behind Flynn’s illicit prosecution. This corruption, as we have exposed from the get-go, is the tip of the iceberg. The required next step for justice is the prosecution of the coup cabal who tried to destroy General Flynn and overthrow our president."

The gormless New York Times said, "‘Never Seen Anything Like This’: Experts Question Dropping of Flynn Prosecution. Abandoning the case is the latest step in a pattern of dismantling the work of the Russia investigators. A former prosecutor likened it to eating the department from the inside out."

The conspiracy theories promoted by the Times are almost worthy of the defunct Weekly World News. (I miss Bat Boy, don't you?)

Obama and his henchmen (and women) are upset.

Yahoo reported, Obama said in a web talk with members of the Obama Alumni Association, "The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn.

"And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places."

Translation: Obama and company are in deep doo-doo.

The story said, "The Flynn case was invoked by Obama as a principal reason that his former administration officials needed to make sure former Vice President Joe Biden wins the November election against President Trump."

They need Biden to stop any prosecution of Obama and company for perjury and othjer high crimes and misdemeanors.

A sue and settle lawsuit might send Obama off the deep end. That would be almost as good as an indictment.


  1. Don't forget the side issue is the documents that Schiffy was trying to hide concerning the Russia hoax.
    This is going to be a very bad summer for the Dems..
    The Schiff is about to hit the fan..
    Flynn BTW deserves every penny.

  2. I personally think if General Flynn goes this route, the settle portion should be higher than 10M, he lost 3 & 1/2 years of his life over this, and the leftist brigade will always view him as a liar, even though he was framed and forced to sign on that he was guilty.

    He should also sue his former legal team, for they were not working for him, they were working to preserve the Russia Hoax and did not do their jobs.

    On top of all this, General Flynn should get a job in the administration again, as a huge finger wave back at Obama who was the head of this coup effort.

    1. Yep, former AG Holders law firm sued.
      I would also like a class action suit so everyone screwed by this investigation can obtain funds to recover their lawyer costs at a minimum.
      Because I dislike these present unconstitutional lockdowns per Title 18 Section 242 US Code and would like to protest, I can't afford the threatened MD governor's 1 year in jail and $5000 fine for doing so. A local church service was so threatened by State Troopers for having services as well. And he is a Republican.

    2. A good job in the administration would be personal assistant to the President for review and reformation of the Intelligence Community.

    3. I agree, $10 million, netting $7 million isn't enough for 3-1/2 years, plus over %5 million in expenses, having to sell his home, and he's still in debt.

      Clearing his debt and recouping expenses, plus the house just puts him where he was 3-1/2 years ago. If only there was a way to attach the assets of the top dogs who orchestrated it, then a punitive dimension would be added. Flynn should be made more than whole, this wasn't a civil case.

  3. Why all the handwringing from the JEF? He'll never face justice on this earth, and he surely doesn't care if any of his minions go to jail.

  4. This is the only time in the last 15 years, or, maybe ever, that obama worried about "the rule of law."

    1. Really, he's only thought on the law was to make sure everyone not on his side, had it used against them. Fast and Furious, dreamers, EPA taking control of everything over a drop of water, IRS... and the list goes on and on.

  5. All good thoughts, except nothing would be anywhere near as good as an indictment.

  6. Jonathan Turley has alluded to the possibility that Flynn could sue for "malicious prosecution." If ever there were such a valid claim, this is IT!

  7. He should also file personal suits against the perps. Challenge sovereign immunity defense. It needs to be overturned. This was a gross abuse of power to overthrow the Constitutional government in the United States. Clean them out. Then offer them exile over prosecution.

  8. The last thing in the world I would want to see if I ever had to go to court is Sidney Powell sitting at the other side's table.

    She beat the Deep State. Forget Rambo. Forget Ahnold.

    She's the Terminatrix.

    1. Ummm, does anyone notice that again the left does not do as it preaches...The lib media: digital, print and broadcast; and the Dems are all bleating about how it is so rare for the DOJ to drop all charges in a case, and how Barr put the fix in for the POTUS?
      Yet not a single person the left is giving not one bit of praise for the 'woman' who conceivably did the impossible as an attorney, and caused the U.S. Justice Dept. to cave and retract its charges. She is America's 21st century, Clarence Darrow! ZB

    2. Sidney Powell is the courtroom version of Chuck Norris.

  9. Agreed all. My first thought is that the headline here needs to add one or more zeroes to that figure. Whatever way this story arcs out, I see a stellar career for Sidney Powell.
    And yes, Bat Boy was a hoot, but I miss Ed Anger "I'm pig-bitin' mad".

  10. Thirty years ago I had work trips to places in the southwest that required more than an hour of commute time from the nearest town or city with lodging. The majority of distance on these drives was on military installations where speed limits were strictly enforced.

    Weekly World News was our entertainment. We would take turns driving and reading articles aloud. It was a real hoot.

    I like the sue and settle idea, but I also want to see Covington and Burling go down hard with partners disbarred.

    Pinochet taught us how to beat communism. The key element is to make the loudmouths live in fear of speaking or acting.

    1. best weekly world news headline:

      I was Bigfoot's love slave!

      how do you top that?


  11. Zero thinks it's unprecedented to drop charges against an innocent man? A genius he ain't. As I recall, he didn't express any concern when his Justice Dept. dropped charges against the (obviously guilty) Black Panthers who intimidated voters in Philadelphia.

    1. Of course, the key word there is "innocent"!

      The perps in Philly were tried, and just before the conviction came down (the judge had been notified of the verdict, btw, which was "guilty") the DOJ filed an emergency motion to drop the case.

      So, if your comparison is Flynn to the BP Philly case, Stinky's correct... those men weren't innocent.

  12. I predict that Obama, like Nixon, will be designated an unindicted co-conspirator. He may walk, but his good name will officially be toast.

    1. I would love it if this left an ASTERISK NEXT TO HIS NAME.
      You know, like the 'Impeachment Asterisk' that the scummy Dems were trying to hang onto Trump

    2. What good name? Asking for a friend.

  13. Flynn should sue the DOJ & settle, but also sue each of those intel agents who personally talked with him.
    With $10 million civil suits.

    And they should not get taxpayer funded defense. Nor should he settle, but push to go to court.

  14. Big D quoted the text, but ya gotta listen to the actual audio to get “the full effect of the heump” as Peter Sellers hilariously said in Pink Panther Strikes Again. Zippy speaking extemporaneously is a fooking painful experience; so many ahhhhhh’s and uhhhhhhh’s. It’s almost as if he’s searching, ahhhhhhh, through a, uhhhhhh, theosauras (long pause) for the uhhhhhhhh proper words to, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, use. The guy was always a buffed pair of shoes and razor creased trousers and NOTHING MORE. Massa Soros picked well.

  15. Bat boy was from the hollers of West Virginny.

  16. I bet his direct losses are already way north of that.

    then consider Sydney Powell's work, currently doing it pro-bono, however, she's well within ethical grounds to go after the FBI/DOJ for her costs on this case.

    if I were Flynn, I would go for $1Bn in reputational damage, physical distress, public humiliation on a global scale, loss of assets/home/etc.

    I would also be trying to claim this directly from those involved, not just the blanket FBI/DOJ (ie. the taxpayer), he should go after Strzok, Page, Mccabe, Comey, Obama, Clapper, Brennan, Muller, Weissmann, Van Grack, Yates, Shiff etc etc. and bankrupt all of them.

    Bo good to see him get the largest settlement in history over this, maybe he could do it jointly with Carter Page, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, etc?

    PS. don't forget he needs to sue Covington & Burling LLP out of existence
