J and William Barr, the New York Times has just broken his story that we have gotten confirmed. Karolyi has unconfirmed, I’m just going to read it to you and then I’ll come to you and get your your thoughts on this bill. Barr has assigned an outside prosecutor to scrutinize the criminal case against President Trump’s former National Security advisor plan. According to people familiar with the matter, the review it’s highly unusual and could trigger more accusations of political interference by top Justice Department officials into the work of career prosecutors, Tom, knowing Charles excellent work on this, I think that it’s a story that is, it is confusing To me why they are taking a look at this Michael Flynn has not been sentenced.
There may be particular concerns with respect to Michael when’s representation. I think his his current Council has raised some interesting questions about his his path Council, but there’s been. A number of theories have been floated about Michael Flynn’s, what he was aware of what he was told. What his attorneys were told respect to the interview that happened with him into FBI agent, one being Peter strzok. Excuse me the interview interview where he lied and remember. He pleaded guilty to lie and he said that he did it and he said he No Reservations about that guilty plea.
So is very unusual in a case where there is a guilty plea and involves the direct Behavior, the person that is charged, I’m still trying to figure out what exactly is being reviewed here, particularly because the government is turds that any sort of notes – and apparently they Weren’T there parts and they were notes the replacing the 302 and notes by the agents that were involved in this. That said that they thought they did. In fact, Michael Flynn play Candor in his in his interview with them. They did not initially state that he was lying all that information according to Federal prosecutors was turned over to Flynn’s defense team.
So it wasn’t as if he was unaware of this prior to entering his guilty. Plea is attorneys of raised all sorts of allegations of prosecutorial misconduct. Allegations of the government strongly Eliza prosecutors involved in this case strongly deny it just occurred to me where you have a guilty plea. You have a sentencing coming up, but now they’re taking a second look at this and it frankly a very cut-and-dry example. What did he say on a phone call that what did he tell the FBI that he said? So I really don’t understand this and it’s high-level, but I need to understand a little bit more about what’s going on before, even offering a more detailed thought.
