James Clapper Text to Washington Post Reporter/Deep State Stenographer David Ignatius: TAKE THE KILL SHOT ON FLYNN

Sydney Powell had a big morning.

She filed a brief in the Michael Flynn case pointing out that prosecutors hid so-called Brady material from her -- evidence the prosecution must disclose to a defendant -- and in fact pressured Flynn to cop a please quickly because they knew the Strzok-Page texts were about to be publicly released and they knew they'd never get a plea after that.

And more. So much more.

First, some quick stuff via Twitchy, then I'll get to sundance at Conservative Treehouse.



Next: newly-revealed texts -- which should have been disclosed to defendant Flynn years ago -- show Lisa Page admitting she "edited" the 302 interview (which should not be "edited" long after the fact -- it's supposed to be an authoritative record of an interview precisely because it was written just after the interview being memorialized) -- and that the initial 302s showed that FBI agents did not think Flynn was lying.

"Editing" these things long after the fact strips them of their key indicia of reliability -- the fact (now apparently not a fact at all) that they are written directly after the interview.

If it gets out that 302s -- supposedly contemporaneous or near-contemporaneous memorializations-- are in fact "edited" long after the fact... tell me, should juries continue treating them as highly credible?

Wait, the 302s say something inconvenient for the prosecution! So now do some "editing"!



What Flynn actually said: He didn't know if he had spoken to Russian Ambassador Kislyak.

What the edited 302s claimed later that he said: that he definitely did not speak to Kislyak.

Thus a lie is fabricated.



They also "edited" the question that was actually posed to Flynn to make his response appear false, and then charged him for having lied about a question never actually asked.

Well, according to Lisa Page's later "edits" it was asked -- but not according to the original 302 reports, written immediately after the interview when the memory was the freshest.



More "edits"?



Oh, and since we're charging people for lying: Lisa Page claimed she did not edit the 302s, until she was confronted with her own edits, at which point she changed her story and allowed well, maybe...



Oh, and they identified the illegal leaker of the Flynn-Kislyak call.

There is no Deep State, by the way.



sundance at Conservative Treehouse has more for you.

We’re going to go through the primary filing and four exhibits to the evidence Attorney Sidney Powell is delivering to Judge Emmet Sullivan which contain some explosive discoveries. Toplines including:

(1) Lisa Page edited the Flynn 302's, then forgot when questioned by DOJ officials, then re-remembered when shown her texts. (2) The 302's themselves were written with lies that do not match notes taken during the interview. (3) The felony leaker of the Flynn-Kislyak phone call is named (James Baker). (4) New texts from Page and Strzok that highlight the entrapment plan. (5) ODNI James Clapper telling WaPo reporter Ignatius to "take the kill shot on Flynn". (6) The purposeful use of Judge Contreras to take the December 1st 2017 plea agreement; and much, much more.


Yeah I know almost all of that is repeated. But your Morons don't even read the blog. And someone told me the key to a good briefing is "Tell people what you're about to tell them, then tell them what you came to tell them, then finish up by telling them what you just told them."

(No seriously -- I laughed when I heard that. It sounds like well-traveled bit of wisdom but it makes sense and it was new to me when I heard it.)

The FBI leaked details of their investigation to the media and then strategized over how they could weaponize the media reports to conduct investigations.

Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap discussed if this approach would work.

The prosecution then intentionally withheld the text messages from Flynn and the public, in their prior releases, showing Peter Strzok and Lisa Page discussing the Strzok & Priestap strategy sessions on using the leaks.

Those texts, clear Brady material, were purposefully hidden by the DOJ, until Sidney Powell went to find them on her own...

Holy cats, this next part is incredible. The 302's were modified to make claims that were never made in the interview. The language was purposefully and willfully made to look like something is wasn’t; and in some cases they made it up completely counter to the actual statement given by Mike Flynn...

CTH has screenshots of the relevant passages posted. I don't want to steal them, but click over to see the parts of the filing that support the claims made.

Sydney Powell filed this timeline of major events of the case and stories in the media about it as part of her filing.

Note page 3: On 12/01/17, Judge Contreras -- a friend of Peter Strzok's, something never revealed to Flynn or his lawyers -- signed Flynn's plea dea.

On the very next day, 12/02/07, news broke of Strzok-Page texts.

It's almost as the release of the texts was delayed until Flynn could be pressured to sign a deal.

No, it's not almost like that. That's what fucking happened.

And then on 12/07/17 -- six days after he signed the plea deal -- Judge Contreras finally recused himself from the matter when the Strzok-Page texts themselves revealed that Strzok and Contreras were friends!

Oh, did I mention that Strzok was one of the agents who interviewed Flynn, whose 302s were later "edited" by his lover Lisa Page, who said she was having heart palpitations over the possibility that Trump could become president?

Her adulterous beau promised her an "insurance policy" -- something that was only revealed days after Flynn was pressured (due to Rosenstein going after his son) to sign a fake-ass plea.

All this is going on, and the government knows about it, but refuses to disclose this exculpatory evidence to the defendant -- which US courts have long stated is a fundamental part of the Sixth Amendment guarantee to a fair trial.

39 I think the kill shot thing is going to be the easiest thing for the public to grasp as a crime.

FWIW Clapper says "those words never left my mouth."

Which doesn't mean he didn't type them, or, as included in Powell's filing - "or words to that effect."

Clapper does not deny leaking the info to Ignatius.

40 Assuming this is all true, which seems likely based on the evidence... why would they figure they could get away with this? Why would they be so blatant and obvious about it?

For the same reasons federal prosecutors keep withholding information from the defense and getting busted for it.

1) they have gotten away with it so much in the past they figured 'why not again?'
2) even if they get caught there's never any penalty
3) the blind zealotry of being certain you're doing the right thing so this petty sin is okay, for the greater cause, the bigger picture.

This aphorism ("Tell people what you're about to tell them...") is an old chestnut. Dates back to the '50s at least. Possibly in some "How to Make Friends and Influence People" pop-psychology book from that era, though at the moment I couldn't name which one exactly.

Vic - you may not realize that there is a huge difference between what lawyers can say to the public (anything, just like politicians) and what they can say in a court filing. Any lawyer who files intentionally false or misleading information with a court is subject to severe sanctions. When you say she needs to provide proof, well of course hell yes, and I'm saying that Powell would never have made this filing if the proof that she had was not included as an attachment to her filing.

Now I tell you things that support my claim.

Then I sum up by showing you that I have demonstrated that I'm right (and you're wrong, blackguard!).


Otherwise people just write and you're forced to sort of do their work for them because they might go on and on with facts and not an argument because they either don't have a point or they can't articulate it and shouldn't a big pile of words count for something especially if they're big word, Latinate if possible in the hopes that the reader is unsure of the meaning of....

I once found an old training manual for Army instructors. It had many lessons like this, telling the instructors how to drive home points with the recruits. Another lesson was: "Never apologize" when it comes to deficiencies in your teaching. Every page had an hilarious illustration. The cartoon for that page showed a drill sargeant explain something to some new recruits. he had drawn a lopsided oval on the chalkboard and with pointing to it with a stick. In the first image, labelled "WRONG<" the sergeant is saying, "Sorry, I didn't draw that circle very well. Doesn't really look like a circle, does it? Well, for this purposes of this lesson, imagine it is a circle...". The second image, this time labelled "RIGHT," is exactly the same, except the sergeant is saying, "THIS IS CIRCLE!"

I will repeat what I've been saying for decades now: The DOJ and FBI did what they did with Ted Stevens because that was par for the course. Same with the FBI scientific experts giving knowingly false testimony for decades. Same with with the Bundy rancher prosecution.

Those weren't outliers. Those were standard, run of the mill procedures. That is why no one batted an eye about what was done.

The disconnect is so thorough that the Dems and media will say that Trump and Barr are lying and the DoJ is corrupt, regardless of what is revealed and who is indicted.

And that might cause Antifa to act up and ramp up serious violence. That also might cause people like Obama and Hillary to skate.

Back in 10th grade, a Swiss girl in our French class (she was a native French speaker -- really wasn't fair to even let her take the class, and she was better at French than the teacher) taught French slang to the other kids, and she claimed then that the French for blowjob was "sucer le pipe" (suck the pipe) not "faire le pipe." Maybe "sucer" is specifically Swiss-French teenage slang.

----- Language Warning -----

To the Democrats: HOW DARE YOU!

You accuse President Trump of abandoning Kurdish allies. You feckless sniveling lapdogs who worship that dead god Marx have no room to accuse anyone of such.

It was you the Democrat Party that cut off funding and assistance to an American ally who had tighter bonds than some nebulous strategic interest. What bonds are these? The bonds of blood spilled on the battlefield to fight a common enemy.

58,000 American warriors gave their last breath, their last drop of blood fighting alongside South Vietnamese troops. Men like Lance Sinjin died there. Men who are still a million times better than anyone of you in the Democrat Party today.

Because of your craven Quisling actions, the whole world got to see North Vietnamese tanks rolling into Saigon. Tens of thousands of civilians fled for their lives. The ones who could not escape were sent to concentration camps where many died.

So don't you dare lecture me on keeping faith with allies. You can all go to Hell for all I care.

"quotes" from a document are hear-say which is not acceptable in court. She must have the original document with something that substantiates it as an original. You can no longer do that with a photostat copy either.

Another sources and methods thing ... paying reporters to publish lies, dirty up political candidates ...


and a favorite, use assets like Mifsud to push fake Russia info into the campaign, so they could later "innocently" show up and "surprise" ... find the smoking gun evidence they planted.


and more simple, shoot the victim in the back of the head three times, later say your investigation found it was suicide (which is really just a message/threat to the next snitch). Poor Seth ... exposing Hillary is deadly.

408 302 OT - Last thoughts on the Syria withdrawal.

----- Language Warning -----

To the Democrats: HOW DARE YOU!

You accuse President Trump of abandoning Kurdish allies. You feckless sniveling lapdogs who worship that dead god Marx have no room to accuse anyone of such.

It was you the Democrat Party that cut off funding and assistance to an American ally who had tighter bonds than some nebulous strategic interest. What bonds are these? The bonds of blood spilled on the battlefield to fight a common enemy.

58,000 American warriors gave their last breath, their last drop of blood fighting alongside South Vietnamese troops. Men like Lance Sinjin died there. Men who are still a million times better than anyone of you in the Democrat Party today.

Because of your craven Quisling actions, the whole world got to see North Vietnamese tanks rolling into Saigon. Tens of thousands of civilians fled for their lives. The ones who could not escape were sent to concentration camps where many died.

So don't you dare lecture me on keeping faith with allies. You can all go to Hell for all I care.

My memory was that the decision was made for him, but to be fair, I don't think we can say either way.

Foreshadowing is a common literary device.

Yes, best evidence rule says that original documents are preferred when being introduced into evidence at trial but attested to copies are also permissible. And lawyers use photocopies of exhibits all the damn time in pre-trial filings. In point of fact, the originals are usually kept segregated from working copies until needed at trial.

And if you can't quote from exhibits, all of which are copies which are attached to the filing, well, I wasted about 35 billable hours and a crap ton of our clients' money this week.

484 This stuff is scary, but mostly because what it says about our legal system.

If the President's right hand man can't get a fair shake, access to evidence, or an honorable judge and can be essentially framed up and have his words twisted if not fabricated entirely, then what hope does a common factory worker without access to entire teams of investigators have?

How many men are sitting in jail because the cop or DA wanted to bang his wife/girlfriend, buy his property at a tax sale or just plain didn't like the dude?

The game is corrupt to its very core at the highest levels, Boss Hogg of Hazzard County levels and everywhere in between.

If I ever sit in a jury box again, rest assured I will do so with the assumption that the officers, the DA and the Judge are all corrupt and conspiring to frame an innocent man. It'll be up to them to convince me otherwise.

546 Can anyone with the requisite legal knowledge explain to a dope like me how it is that Flynn's "confession" hasn't yet been thrown out?
======
He pled guilty. He was asked again, after Powell signed on, if he wanted to withdraw that guilty plea and the answer was no.

They decided they wanted to try and open this can of worms in the sentencing portion. They realized, correctly that they could get the judge to agree it was relevant to sentencing whether they had withheld evidence of innocence and that's how we are here now. The judge can throw it out if they can prove it was a frame up. If they can't prove its a frame up, then the downside risk of withdrawing the plea is pretty high.

Posted by: simplemind at October 25, 2019 03:04 PM (MBlAu)

547 473, Alexthechick is absolutely right. You do have to go through authentication if you are in court with a competent witness to introduce and authenticate that it is "a fair and accurate copy"

The prosecution can challenge the authenticity of the documents of the defense but that might require a rather difficult public or in camera hearing with a judge and the defense being present. To do so, they might just have to produce the claimed "originals" which presumably are just what Sidney already has copies of.

Frankly, the prosecutors should be disbarred and if they do not produce the originals in short order they should be found in contempt of court. If I was the judge, and they still did not comply, I would hold them for 365 days in jail and refer them to the DOJ for criminal contempt of court.

The corruption was so ingrained and the elements of the corruption distributed so widely in the government, that the information needed to prove deep state;s coup attempt is everywhere.

Which means that there is lots of it but that you have to go lots of places to get it. And you have to do it right

Lots of things could go wrong but there is a chance that Trump, Barr and Durham could win bigly for the republic.

642 599 If the judge in this case is Rudolph Contreras then Flynn and his lawyer are SOL and up the river without a paddle. He is an "Obama" judge.

WTH!? How can you not know who the judge is in this case and read this site on a regular basis?

Not to mention, it's been posted to you in this thread several times...it's Emmett Sullivan. Good grief...

649 So does Barr owe Sidney Powell a pizza or something now? Makes it easier to buy a frame up of Trump since it can be shown they did it to Flynn.

Posted by: Blanco Basura

Its Powell and Flynn that owe Barr, if I were to guess - or someone working for Barr.

654 Sundance, lol. I get the repetition-to-drive-the-point-home thing, but that guy goes way, way overboard with it. He doesn't just repeat within a post, he then reposts the same thing just with very slightly different words over and over.

Then there's the whole oversized deluxe tinfoil hat thing he's got going on.

And then there's the being outright wrong half the time thing he's got going on.

657 . If they can't prove its a frame up, then the downside risk of withdrawing the plea is pretty high.

659 BREAKING(/B0

Here's case on the new SCOTUS that may be significant:

One of the religious liberty cases the Supreme Court Justices won't be hearing this term is the issue of Maryland High School student Caleigh Wood, who refused to take part in a school assignment to write the Islamic conversion prayer that states 'there is no god but Allah' because she believed it directly contradicted her Christian faith.


That case was ripe for some court action and SCOTUS turned it down. That means they didn't even have 4 justices that thought it had a chance.

660 test

Posted by: Vic at October 25, 2019 03:45 PM (mpXpK)

661 I am sickened every time I hear news about "investigation into the origins of the Russia probe."

This is a straight-up, DNC framing narrative.
The investigation is about OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND DNC ILLEGALLY SPYING ON POLITICAL OPPONENTS and about ENTRAPMENT and about FRAMING POLITICAL OPPONENTS FOR CRIMES THEY DID NOT COMMIT.

Sorry to go all Ben but unless you're following things closely you'd think "Trump and the GOP" are just quibbling about how a legitimate investigation into "Russia meddling" got rolling.

Anderson Pooper and the Clappity Clappper interview.

Anderson is pretending not to know anything about spygate and of course calling it conspiracy theory.

Jeffrey Toobie Toobin (now without his perm apparently) is poo pooing as well. But you can kind of read his face.

Are they really not aware of all this sh*t or ARE they pretending ????

669 658 It was Sundance who said, over and over and over, that the Democrats would for certain impeach over the Mueller report ("That's what they do. That's *all* they do.). He had so many endless posts on it I lost count and stopped reading him out of sheer boredom. He drew connections to every one and their mom from every corner of the freakin' world as his "evidence". And then he was wrong.

Endless repetition, check. Oversize deluxe tinfoil hat, check. And he was wrong, check.

So I'm actually 3-for-fucking-3 there, chump.

Posted by: Crabby Appleton at October 25, 2019 04:40 PM (7MHNI)

672 OMG. If someone in the paper-chain rewrote one of my reports in any fashion I'd have seriously flipped my sh*t. It should always be hammered into boots (rookies) that "your signature on your police report can get someone executed", for that's how high the stakes can be. There needs to be serious jail time over this if proven true. "The end justifies the means" doesn't cut it here nor any other criminal justice matter. Still SMDH over this.

Posted by: Zombie Ronald Reagan, please save us! at October 25, 2019 07:45 PM (ie1PM)

673 Isn't Flynn's prior law firm where Democrats go when Administrations change? I seem to recall Eric Holder working for them. Oh, yeah...didn't the waterboarding legal challenge come from Covington & Burling?

Rhetorical. They do all kinds of lefty pro-bono work.

Why the h*ll would Gen. Flynn pay this firm to represent him, when the case just finished up with a guilty plea...one day before the Page-Strzok texts came out???

Methinks C&B should be part of Barr's investigation too...
