Les pardons (grĂąces) prĂ©- NoĂ«l de D.#Trump sont massifs et ciblĂ©s. Ils bĂ©nĂ©ficient Ă  Papadopoulos qui a menti au FBI dans l'enquĂȘte #Mueller sur l'ingĂ©rence de la #Russie et Ă  3 ex-Ă©lus trumpistes condamnĂ©s pour malversations financiĂšres. Drain the swamp? washingtonpost.com/politics/georg

2) Outre l'effacement de l'ardoise #Mueller, qui semble valider avec #Flynn et #Papadopoulos que mentir au #FBI est admissible pour protéger 1 président en poste, le pardon de #Trump accordé aux délinquants politiques en col blanc Hunter, Collins et Stockman...

D'aprĂšs @maggienyt ():
1. #Trump a reçu à la Maison Blanche l'avocate Powell, celle du complot Venezuela/Chine/CIA, songeant à elle en procureure spéciale
2. Giuliani a proposé 1 saisie fédérale des machines à voter
3. Flynn, pro-putsch militaire, Ă©tait lĂ 
2) Les infos du @nytimes sont confirmĂ©es Ă  l'instant par la remarquable @rebeccaballhaus du @WSJ: hier, Ă  la Maison Blanche, il a bien Ă©tĂ© Ă©voquĂ©- mĂȘme si rejetĂ©- 1 coup de force militaire et la nomination de Powell en procureure spĂ©ciale. Autre dimension
3) LĂ , les amis, je ne sais plus quoi vous dire: on aura donc discutĂ© Ă  la Maison Blanche de #Trump, mĂȘme pour la rejeter, l'idĂ©e d'1 intervention militaire pour annuler 1 Ă©lection dĂ©mocratique validĂ©e par les 50 Etats, et en prĂ©sence d'1 ex-gĂ©nĂ©ral putschiste. Les mots manquent

Pour répondre à 1 question de @PierreSerisier, ce n'est pas la loi martiale que D.#Trump est invité par ses partisans à proclamer, mais le déploiement de l'armée sous l'autorité de l'Insurrection Act de 1807. Explications dans le @politico du jour... politico.com/news/2020/12/1

2)...et comme l'Ă©crit trĂšs bien @politico, ce n'est pas tant la probabilitĂ©- faible- d'1 recours Ă  l'Insurrection Act de 1807 contre le rĂ©sultat d'1 Ă©lection dĂ©mocratique par #Trump qui doit ĂȘtre analysĂ©e que le fait d'y ĂȘtre invitĂ© par ses partisans les plus radicaux.
3) Evoqué ici aprÚs les émeutes consécutives à l'assassinat de George Floyd, l'Insurrection Act de 1807 est 1 exception légale au Posse Comitatus de 1878 qui interdit le déploiement des troupes armées sur le territoire intérieur US pour maintien de l'ordre.

#Flynn In 43 page opinion, Judge Sullivan calls POTUS full pardon “political decision not a legal one” CONTEXT: Sullivan dismisses @GenFlynn case as “moot,” more than 7 months after DOJ motion + weeks AFTER District Court ordered Sullivan to act with dispatch. Sullivan writes,
“The history of the Constitution, its structure + the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the pardon power make clear that President Trump’s decision to pardon Mr. Flynn is a political decision, not a legal one. Because the law recognizes the President’s political power to pardon,
the appropriate course is to dismiss this case as moot. However, the pardon ‘does not, standing alone, render [Mr. Flynn] innocent of the alleged violation’ of 18 U.S.C. § 1001(a)(2).” @ClareHymes22 @CBSNews

Ma nouvelle chronique pour @Lesjoursfr: 1 #Trump qui utilise les moyens de l'Etat et de sa fonction pour essayer de renverser le vote populaire et gracier ses proches (Flynn). Quelle conception de la #démocratie se dessine ici?
#Bonnelecture
2) En complément de ma chronique, 1 point historique sur la conception de la présidence de #Trump qui s'affirme et s'affine avec ces recours judiciaires désormais désespérés pour contester le résultat de la présidentielle contre #Biden...
3) D'1 part, et il est toujours bon de le rappeler, #Trump n'a jamais envisagé une alternance ordinaire et pacifiée, posant en axiome. "Si je perds, c'est que l'élection est truquée". DÚs le 17 août au moins.

Judge Sullivan on #Flynn's case just granted a lineup of requests to file friend-of-the-court briefs in the wake of Trump granting a pardon to the former national security adviser.
A group of Watergate prosecutors and Dems on the House Judiciary Committee are among the parties granted leave to file amicus briefs.
The requests Sullivan has granted were filed in late Sept/early Oct before Trump signed Flynn's pardon. Background: courthousenews.com/sweeping-flynn

2) Les démocrates auront du mal à critiquer #Trump sur ce pouvoir de pardon/grùce présidentiel, dont #BillClinton a fait un usage trÚs mal avisé dans l'affaire Marc Rich (et pas que). Mais que #Trump en use pour 1 ex-subordonné qui avait reconnu son délit, c'est inhabituel...
3) Cependant, ce pardon de #Flynn est aussi 1 aveu d'Ă©chec pour #Trump qui s'Ă©tait fait fort d'ajourner le procĂšs de #Flynn en faisant cesser les poursuites de SON ministĂšre de la Justice via Barr contre tous les usages... law.com/nationallawjou

NOW #Flynn's attorney said she spoke to President Donald Trump about the case "to inform him of the general status of the litigation."
Judge Sullivan asked if that conversation was in the last two weeks. Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell said time has a way of getting away from her but seemed to answer it was in recent weeks.
Powell tried to invoke ***executive privilege*** to circumvent Sullivan's questions, surprising the judge who said she does not work for the government.

Coming up at 11am, Judge Sullivan will hear arguments on the Justice Department's push to drop the prosecution of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael #Flynn. I'll have live updates.
This will be the first time hearing directly from Sullivan--appointed by president's of both parties to serve on the D.C. superior, circuit and district courts--since Flynn asked the D.C. Circuit to force the judge to drop the case.

#Durham #Flynn 13 page DOJ filing includes unvarnished assessment from FBI Agent assigned to Flynn case, code named “Crossfire RAZOR.” Pages 1 + 2 Agent William Barnett said case theory was “supposition on supposition” + predication or basis for opening probe “not great”
On pages 3 + 5 Agent Barnett said FBI team considered closing Flynn probe November 2016 (which moves up timeline) + called case “exercise in futility” + believed he was “cut out” of Jan 2017 Flynn WH conducted by @petestrzok where Flynn had no lawyer + WH counsel not advised
Page 6 + 7 Agent Barnett said “RAZOR Investigation was problematic” + he “wished to be removed” because it could end up with IG + FBI lawyer Clinesmith who recently pleaded guilty to altering CIA email about @carterwpage also handled Flynn data collection requests

“Hey, don’t close RAZOR (#Flynn).”

The partly redacted messages don’t indicate why the reversal occurred — it came just 20 minutes after the doc to close the case had been circulating and less than a week after Flynn spoke by phone to RU Amb Kislyak. politico.com/news/2020/04/3

Transcripts of calls between Flynn, Russian diplomat (Kislyak) show that the two did discuss sanctions as the incoming administration sought to avoid escalating the conflict over Russian interference in the presidential election. washingtonpost.com/national-secur

RW media is attempting to characterize the FBI inv’n into Flynn as an op to “get Flynn.” It’s true the FBI was about to close the case when intercepts of Flynn’s convos with Kislyak dropped asking RU not to retaliate about the sanctions the Obama adm imposed re elex interference.

KING BARR

#Barr accuses Justice Department of headhunting and meddling with politics

He insisted on his absolute authority to overrule career staff, whom he said too often injected themselves into politics

#MOG
#ImpeachBarr
washingtonpost.com/national-secur

“What exactly am I interfering with?” he asked.

“Under the law, all prosecutorial power is invested in the AG”

#Barr’s comments were remarkable, in that the head of the Justice Department catalogued all of the ways in which he thought his agency had gone astray over the years
#Barr said it was he, not career officials, who have ULTIMATE AUTHORITY to decide how cases should be handled, and derided less-experienced, less-senior bureaucrats who current and former prosecutors have long insisted should be left to handle their cases free from interference

#Durham #Flynn Former senior FBI counterintelligence official E. W. “Bill” Priestap is under scrutiny by Senate Judiciary republicans over FBI draft talking points for 2018 Senate intel committee briefing which included credibility of the Steele dossier. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/

WHY IT MATTERS: the 2018 FBI draft talking points say the primary sub-source “did not cite significant concerns with the way his reporting was characterized in the dossier to the extent he could identify it.” But a year earlier, January 2017, the same dossier sub-source told FBI
investigators he did not recall or did not know where some reporting came from, described other info as “rumor + speculation” CONTEXT: Priestap’s handwritten notes from January 2017 were recently made public (note initials “EP”) + central to FBI handling of @GenFlynn case which..

it (Durham) potentially, have you been interviewed? STRZOK: I have not. DOKOUPIL: Are you a target or a witness? STRZOK: I have certainly done nothing wrong. So I'm not worried about whatever he may find him..if he finds the truth. I am not worried.
DOKOUPIL: Do you expect additional indictments? STRZOK: With regard to government employees working on the case. Not at all. @CBSNews
