The Evening Campaign Update
On what has been quite possibly the dumbest news day in American history, we actually have more real news related to the coup cabal that operated within the Department of Justice and FBI from late 2015 through 2018.
Sidney Powell, the badass attorney for General Mike Flynn, issued the tweet below announcing that the DOJ finally released BRADY evidence that Powell and Flynn’s previous attorneys have been seeking through three long years and a span of four Attorneys General and two FBI Directors:
#BREAKING The government just provided the #Flynn defense with remarkable new & long withheld BRADY evidence. Letter below just filed. Stay tuned.@realDonaldTrump @Techno_Fog @seanmdav @seanhannity @ProfMJCleveland @BarbaraRedgate @JosephJFlynn1 @lofly727 @GoJackFlynn pic.twitter.com/06dS1ybv6L

Powell has long accused the government of illegally withholding this and more information for the express reason that it would exonerate Gen. Flynn of the charges in the case. In response to the release, Powell made a supplemental filing in which she once again demands the government to unseal the documents release to her today and immediately dismiss the case.
Excerpt from Powell’s filing:
The government has deliberately suppressed this evidence from the inception of this prosecution—knowing there was no crime by Mr. Flynn.In addition, Mr. Flynn’s counsel has found further evidence of misconduct by Mr. Van Grack specifically. Not only did he make baseless threats to indict Michael G. Flynn, he made aside 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.
Since August 2016 at the latest, partisan FBI and DOJ leaders conspired to destroy Mr.Flynn. These documents show in their own handwriting and emails that they intended either to create an offense they could prosecute or at least get him fired. Then came the incredible malfeasance of Mr. Van Grack’s and the SCO’s prosecution despite their knowledge there was no crime by Mr. Flynn. All this new evidence, and the government has advised there is more to come, proves that the crimes were committed by the FBI officials and then the prosecutors. The government’s misconduct in this case is beyond shocking and reprehensible. It mandates dismissal…
This case is a shameful blight on the American justice system. “The first duties of the officers of the law are to prevent, not to punish crime. It is not their duty to incite to and create crime for the sole purpose of prosecuting and punishing it. . . [I]t is unconscionable, contrary to public policy, and to the established law of the land to punish a man for the commission of an offense of the like of which he had never been guilty, either in thought or in deed, and evidently never would have been guilty of if the officers of the law had not inspired, incited, persuaded, and lured him to attempt to commit it.”
For the reasons above, and those previously briefed, this Court must dismiss this concocted prosecution of General Flynn in full recognition of the travesty of justice that it is.
If that wasn’t news enough, The Daily Caller has a report out this afternoon claiming that an anonymous source alleges that current FBI Director Christopher Wray has been leading the effort to suppress all of this information since assuming the job in 2017.
From that report:
Federal Bureau of Investigations Director Christopher Wray fought to prevent exculpatory evidence from surfacing in the case of President Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells Daily Caller…
An FBI official told The Federalist that FBI general counsel Dana Boente was behind the effort to block the release of the Brady Material, yet Daily Caller’s source explained Boente was acting in coordination with Wray. The New York Times additionally reported Friday that U.S. attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation asked witnesses about a Washington Post article speculating on potential ties Flynn had to Russia…
Justice Department code clearly dictates that “government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial,” and the FBI does not reserve the right to withhold exculpatory evidence.
The allegation that the worthless, obviously corrupt Wray was leading this coverup effort comes as no surprise to anyone who has paid close attention to his conduct in office over the past three years, but this is the first time the allegation has been overtly directed his way.
Given all of the reputational harm this disgrace of a case has caused the DOJ for 39 months now, it boggles the mind that Attorney General William Barr doesn’t just order his underlings to dismiss the charges. Obviously, there is something at play behind the scenes that has yet to be made public. What that something might be is anyone’s guess, but in any event, this was a fun way to close out another crazy week.
That is all.
