Sydney Powell: FBI Withheld Exculpatory Brady Material In Michael Flynn Case On Orders of...
FBI Director Wray

I assume the Trump presser will start sometime. It's late, as usual. here's the WH link, and here's the Fox link.

Thanks to m.

Do not permit Christopher Wray to return to his desk or computer. Just seize his Blackberry, seize his computer, seize his security badges, escort him out the door, and inform him that his personal effects and personal computer files will be sent to him later -- after they're inspected for evidence.

Heads must roll.

And frankly, Trump needs to stop being a cuck and do the job we elected him to do.

I'm not going to keep defending him if he's going to be a fucking pussy and simp every fucking day.

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.

New court documents were filed in Flynnís case Friday containing the aforementioned exculpatory evidence, commonly referred to as Brady Material. Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell, announced the new filing on Twitter. She has repeatedly accused the FBI and Justice Department of hiding evidence in the case.


"This afternoon, the government produced to Mr. Flynn stunning Brady evidence that proves Mr. Flynn' allegations of having been deliberately set up and framed by corrupt agents at the top of the FBI," Powell wrote in an additional filing. "The government has deliberately suppressed this evidence from the inception of this prosecution--knowing there was no crime by Mr. Flynn."

"Since August 2016 at the latest, partisan FBI and DOJ leaders conspired to destroy Mr. Flynn," she continued. "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."

Powell claimed that more exculpatory evidence in the case will surface in the future.

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. ...

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.

Update from the Daily Caller:

UPDATE 5:40 pm ET: After publication, FBI Assistant Director of Public Affairs delivered the following statement to Daily Caller:

"The assertion that Director Wray pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Michael Flynn case is absolutely false."

Well, the FBI's never lied to the public before, so I believe you without reservation!
Thanks to Irish Ei.

The New York Times reports, meanwhile, that Durham's probe is broader than most had thought, and that Durham is investigating a leak to the Washington Post's David Ignatius that Flynn had violated the laughably-defunct LOGAN ACT.

Who leaked this? Who proposed dusting off this never-enforced, plainly unconstitutional dead letter "law" to open a case on a political rival?

I think it's Sally Yates but time -- and the power the state to coerce testimony -- will tell.

Investigators have also examined the role of John O. Brennan, the C.I.A. director in 2016, in how intelligence agencies assessed Russia's election interference. Though Mr. Trumpís allies have accused Mr. Brennan -- who has made his distaste for the president widely known -- of tainting intelligence to go after Mr. Trump, the Senate Intelligence Committee said this week in a report that it found no evidence that the intelligence communityís assessment on Russian interference had been politicized.

Last year, Mr. Durham also started examining the 2017 column by The Postís David Ignatius, said a person familiar with that line questioning. Mr. Ignatius revealed that Mr. Flynn had spoken in late 2016 with Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States at the time, as the Obama administration was about to place sanctions on Russia for its election sabotage.

Mr. Ignatius noted Mr. Flynn's close contacts with the Russians and suggested that because Mr. Flynn was apparently conducting foreign policy while another administration was in power, he might have violated the Logan Act. The law is an obscure statute that bars private citizens from interfering with diplomatic relations between the United States and foreign governments and is widely considered to be essentially defunct.

John Brennan needs to have his neck stretched.
