For John, BLUF: The Department of Justice seems to be more about winning than about justice. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From American Greatness, by Mr Adam Mill, 4 November 2019.
Here is the lede plus one:
Michael Flynn’s attorney filed a response Monday to the federal government’s defense against several shocking claims of misconduct. Attorney Sidney Powell alleged in an earlier filing that federal prosecutors, led by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller alumnus Brandon Van Grack, hid or destroyed evidence and used an edited account of Flynn’s statement as a basis for charging the former national security advisor with lying to the FBI.The case against retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn seemed to me to be a little far-fetched. And, in my mind LTG Flynn seemed a bomb thrower, wanting to reorient the Intelligence Community toward the "coal face", toward the soldier on the front line.
Powell inferred that an earlier version of Flynn’s statement, as recorded by the interviewing agents, was suppressed or destroyed.
General Flynn's Lawyer, Ms Sydney Powell, is not a stranger to DoJ prosecutorial misconduct, having handled the appeal of Senator Ted Stevens against a Federal Corruption Prosecution.
We must expect and demand better from the Department of Justice.
