Mike Flynn Files Court Documents With Evidence FBI ‘Deliberately Set Him Up'
Former Trump national security adviser has bombshell evidence
The lawyers for President Trump’s former national security adviser, General Michael Flynn, say they have undisclosed evidence proving Flynn was “deliberately set up and framed by corrupt agents at the top of the FBI" according to supplemental court documents filed on Friday.
The supplemental filing reads:
“This afternoon, the government produced to Mr. Flynn stunning Brady evidence that proves Mr. Flynn’s allegations of having been deliberately set up and framed by corrupt agents at the top of the FBI."
“It also defeats any argument that the interview of Mr. Flynn on January 24, 2017, was material to any ‘investigation.’ The government has deliberately suppressed this evidence from the inception of this prosecution—knowing there was no crime by Mr. Flynn.”
“Brady” is referring to a landmark Supreme Court decision confirming the prosecution must provide evidence to the defense that may excuse the defendant.
“In addition, Mr. Flynn’s counsel has found further evidence of misconduct by [head prosecutor Brandon Van Grack] specifically,” the filing continues.
“Not only did he make baseless threats to indict Michael G. Flynn, he made a side deal not to prosecute Michael G. Flynn as a material term of the plea agreement, but he required that it be kept secret between himself and the Covington attorneys expressly to avoid the requirement of Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972). Exs. 1, 2.”
According to the National Review, the “side deal" was reportedly made with Flynn’s former defense team “to not prosecute Flynn’s son — despite threatening to Flynn that he would do so — in order to get Flynn to plead guilty.”
Included in the court documents are heavily-redacted emails from lawyers, “discussing why the deal needed to be ‘kept secret,’ implying that Flynn would be used to testify in further criminal cases."
The filing is evident that Flynn says was setup.
Now the former national security adviser is trying to withdraw his guilty plea for allegedly lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian ambassador.
“So now it is reported that, after destroying his life [and] the life of his wonderful family (and many others also), the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has ‘lost’ the records of General Michael Flynn. How convenient,” Trump tweeted last month.
“I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!”

According to The federalist, FBI official stated documents hold “significant exculpatory information” about Flynn.
It added that “FBI general counsel Dana Boente led the charge internally against DOJ’s disclosure of the new materials.”
“Boente, who briefly served as acting Attorney General after Trump became president, personally signed off on one of the federal spy warrants against former Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page,” The Federalist notes.
“The new documents, which were filed under a protective order by DOJ on Friday, will reflect poorly on the FBI," The official says.
Politico notes that Powell commented on the newly revealed information on social media, citing the Brady rule:
"The government just provided the #Flynn defense with remarkable new [and] long-withheld BRADY evidence. Stay tuned,” she tweeted.

“Federal prosecutors are studying more than 100 pages of newly written declarations from former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s ex-lawyers as the Justice Department decides how to respond to Flynn’s bid to unwind his guilty plea on the grounds that his old legal team failed to give him proper advice,” Politico reports.
As Neon Nettle reported last October, Flynn's lawyer revealed evidence that James Comey's FBI "ambushed" him and later "celebrated" stitching him up.
Under Comey's instruction, the FBI “unilaterally” moved to interview Flynn, ignoring the White House counsel.
According to Flynn's lawyer, he was also led to believe agents were arriving as friends to discuss terrorism.
