Let’s play a little timeline game here:
12.1.2017 – General Mike Flynn, after being hounded, having his family threatened and driven to near-bankruptcy for months by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks, enters a guilty plea for having lied to the FBI in a surprise January 24 interview that was conducted by FBI Deep State agent Peter Strzok and two other agents.
12.7.2017 – The judge who received that plea, Judge Rudolph Contreras – who also happens to be a FISA Court judge – was removed from the case. Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is assigned as his replacement on the case. The fake news media naturally has shown no curiosity at all about why this change took place.
12.12.2017 – One of Judge Sullivan’s first actions in the case was to issue an order to Mueller to turn over all evidence used in the case against Flynn. More on this later.
12.2017 – 1.2018 – A steady stream of revelations of corrupt behavior on the part of senior staff at FBI and DOJ has resulted in the firing/reassignment/resignations of 9 such personnel, including Strzok, his lover and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, DOJ official Bruce Ohr, FBI Deputy director Andrew McCabe, FBI General Counsel Bob Baker, and others.
12.13.2017 – 12.20.2017 – A series of five motions to intervene on behalf of General Flynn were filed with the court by a “private individual” who has thus far not been fully identified. The motions are based on the argument that the evidence presented to the court by the Mueller team was illegally obtained “fruit of the poisonous tree”. These motions were denied by Judge Sullivan because the federal rules for intervention do not provide for the intervention by a third party in a criminal case. (For those unfamiliar with the term, “fruit of the poisonous tree” used to describe evidence that has been illegally obtained.)
1.31.2018 – Robert Mueller files a request for a delay of the sentencing hearing related to Flynn’s guilty plea until May,
2.12.2018 – Byron York publishes a piece in the Washington Examiner detailing James Comey’s March, 2017 closed-door testimony to congress that Strzok and the other FBI agents present for Flynn’s 1.24.2017 interview did not believe Flynn had misled them, and that he and the agents had then decided not to pursue any charges against Flynn.
2.14.2018 – Today, at Robert Mueller’s request, Judge Sullivan entered a protective order in the case governing use of the documents already provided by Mueller’s team pursuant to the previous order and any further evidence that may be provided via defense discovery going forward. Basically, this means that Mueller’s team is ready to begin complying with Sullivan’s order from 12.12, and wants to ensure the evidence they provide will be held confidential, and only for the use of the defense.
What does this all mean? It means that Mike Flynn has decided to defend himself, most likely on the same “fruit of the poisonous tree” grounds contained on those five motions to intervene that were filed with the court in mid-December. It means that Mueller was, at the end of January, aware that he has a problem, which is most likely why he agreed to file the motion to delay sentencing.
It probably means that Comey and his pal Strzok should have taken more care to get their story straight before Comey testified to congress last March, and it could well mean that Strzok and/or others went back and doctored the records memorializing their 1.24.2017 surprise meeting with Flynn after the fact. It could also mean that the revelations detailed in the recently-released FISA Abuse Memo have provided Flynn’s lawyers with proof that Flynn was illegally surveilled by the Obama thugs. And it could also mean that there are relevant exchanges of information in the thousands of texts between Strzok and Page that have yet to be released to the public.
Finally, for me it means that I just cannot wait to find out who it was that filed those motions to intervene on Flynn’s behalf back in December. I suspect we’ll all be familiar with the name when it is ultimately revealed.
The good guys almost always win in the end, and General Mike Flynn is definitely one of the good guys.
That is all.
