The Evening Campaign Update
You knew something big was about to happen about mid-day on Thursday when corrupt federal prosecutor Brandon Van Grack formally filed his notice of withdrawal from the Michael Flynn show trial with the judge in the case, Emmet Sullivan, along with several other cases in which he has been representing the DOJ.
It's not just the Flynn case.
Van Grack is withdrawing as counsel for the Govt in other cases as well.

An hour later, and bam!, we get notice that Attorney General William Barr has finally come through for the cause to restore American justice and filed notice with Judge Sullivan recommending that he allow General Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea and dismiss the atrocity of a case.
he Justice Department on Thursday recommended a federal judge reverse the conviction of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and drop the charges, a stunning reversal in a case that became a powerful symbol of FBI misconduct in the Russia case.
The government’s motion must still be granted by U.S. Judge District Judge Emmett Sullivan.
The government said recent revelations from evidence withheld from the court for years warranted the dramatic recommendation, including that the FBI interview that Flynn was accused of lying during was not warranted by law after agents had already concluded there was no criminal conduct on his behalf.
The next obvious step is for Van Grack to be allowed to resign his job at DOJ rather than suffer the unceremonious firing he so richly deserves for having framed a man who honorably served this country for more than 30 years, broken him financially and smeared his good name for over 3 years. Hopefully, we will see that formal resignation before the day is out.
For General Flynn, this represents justice at long last, but at an enormous financial cost and emotional toll on him and his family. For his counsel, Dallas attorney Sidney Powell, it represents one of the most impressive legal victories in modern times. Essentially working on almost a pro bono basis, Powell went up against the power of the U.S. Department of Justice arrayed against her client, a judge who refused to hold the corrupt DOJ lawyers accountable for their blatant disregard for the law and established court processes, and the constant smears and slanders mounted against her and her client by the utterly corrupt national news media, and somehow came out of it all victorious.
If you, like I am, are elated at this outcome, think of how Flynn and Powell must feel right now.
If you want to feel even better, check out this reaction by Jabba the Nadler:
This is outrageous!
Flynn PLEADED GUILTY to lying to investigators. The evidence against him is overwhelming. Now, a politicized DOJ is dropping the case.
The decision to overrule the special counsel is without precedent and warrants an immediate explanation.

In his next tweet, Fat Jerry promises to call Barr in for a hearing. Hopefully, President Trump will instruct his Attorney General to give Nadler the proverbial finger.
To add a little more cheer to your day, President Trump, during a press availability with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, just said “and I wouldn’t be surprised if you see a lot of things happen over the next number of weeks. This is just one piece of a very dishonest puzzle.”
Yes, more please. Much, much more.
Today’s a great day for America. Celebrate it.
That is all.
