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.
