Gen. Flynn, through his lawyers has filed a Memorandum in Aid of Sentencing. assets.documentcloud.org/documents/5526…
There are some remarkable things in this memo, things you may not be aware of.
First, there are three full pages of letters of support from a host of people, both well known and not so well known. It’s obvious that Gen. Flynn has a lot of friends and supporters. (pgs 3 through 5)
Pg 6 “As the Government has
made clear, his cooperation was not grudging or delayed. Rather, it preceded his guilty plea or
any threatened indictment and began very shortly after he was first contacted for assistance by
the Special Counsel’s Office. “
That’s the first that I’ve heard that his cooperation began BEFORE any threat of indictment. It will be interesting to find out what the cooperation entailed and what impact it had on any cases going forward.
Pg 11 “General Stanley McChrystal, lauded General Flynn’s actions during this period, noting that “Mike Flynn’s impact on the nation’s War on Terror probably trumps any other single person as his energy and skill at harnessing the IC into a focused effort was literally historic.”
Pg 12 “As General Flynn has frankly acknowledged in his own words, he recognizes that his actions were wrong and he accepts full responsibility for them.” But watch what comes next.
Pg 12 & 13 “There are, at the same time, some
additional facts regarding the circumstances of the FBI interview of General Flynn on January 24, 2017, that are relevant to the Court’s consideration of a just punishment.” Additional circumstances indeed.
Pg 13 “Mr. McCabe, by his own account, stated that he “felt that we needed to have two of our agents sit down” with General Flynn to talk about his communications with Russian representatives.” So McCabe initiated the interaction with the FBI. Evil was afoot.
Pg 13
Pg 14
IOW, they set him up in a perjury trap based on faulty memory of a conversation that they had a verbatim transcript of. This is NOT how law enforcement is supposed to work.
Pg 15
IOW, McCabe and Strozk may be scoundrels of the worst order, but Flynn is an honorable man.
Pg 17 “We cannot say it any better than the Special Counsel’s Office has: Given all the circumstances, “a sentence at the low end of the guideline range – including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration – is appropriate and warranted.””
What follows is almost 140 pages of letters of support for Gen. Flynn. I don’t know what the judge will do, but I know what I would do. I would set aside his guilty plea and castigate the government for their ill treatment of Flynn.
One significant item of note is that the 302 of Flynn’s interview is dated SEVEN MONTHS after his interview. That alone speaks of nefarious dealings. washingtonexaminer.com/news/memo-fbi-…
Looks like Judge Sullivan is none to happy with the government.
