Flynn Attorney Rips Obama: ‘Your Administration’ Was Damaging to ‘Rule of Law’

eneral Michael Flynn’s Attorney has released a 3-page ‘open-letter’ to former President Barack Obama. Labeled ‘Open Memorandum’ Titled ‘Re: Your Failure to Find Precedent for Flynn Dismissal’ Powell unleashes on Obama specifically; something few have done with regard to Flynn. The letter begins: “Regarding the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss charges against General Flynn, in your recent call with your alumni, you express great concern: ‘there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free.”

“Here is some help,” Powell writes in response to Obama’s quote. “If truth and precedent represent your true concern. Your statement is entirely false.” Not only false but Obama’s statement “does explain the damage to the Rule of Law throughout your administration.”

First, begins Powell, not only was Flynn not charged with perjury but “a perjury prosecution would have been appropriate and the Rule of Law applied if the Justice Department prosecuted your former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his multiple lies under oath in an investigation of a leak only he knew he caused” Powell explains.

Not only did McCabe lie under oath as transcripts with the Inspector General of the DOJ show, but, “he knew he was the leaker. McCabe even lied about lying. He lied to his own agents – which sent them on a ‘wild-goose-chase’ – thereby making his lies ‘material’ and obstruction of justice. Yet, remarkably, Attorney General Barr declined to prosecute McCabe for these offenses.”

Second, Powell addresses Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder. “Within weeks of Mr. Holder becoming Attorney General, he moved to dismiss the Stevens prosecution in the interest of justice for the same reasons the Justice Department did against General Flynn – egregious misconduct by prosecutors who his exculpatory evidence and concocted purported crimes.” Although the facts in the Stevens case were “horrifying” they “pale in comparison to the targeted setup, framing, and prosecution of a newly elected President’s National Security Advisor and the shocking facts that surround it.”

Powell continued, Flynn’s case was “an assault on the heart of liberty – our cherished system of self-government, the right of citizens to choose their president, and the hallowed peaceful transition of power.”

Third, Powell says of Obama’s allegation of getting off scot-free “would be laughable were it not so pathetic.” As revealed in the book Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice  Obama’s White House Counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, amongst others, “destroyed Arthur Andersen LLP and it’s 85,000 jobs; sent four Merrill Lynch executives to prison on an indictment that criminalized an innocent business transaction while they hid the evidence that showed those defendants were innocent for six years.”

As for the Mueller special counsel operation led by Andrew Weissmann and Wiessmann “wannabes” they “specialize in prosecutorial terrorist tactics repulsive to everything ‘justice’ is supposed to mean.” Their “tactics are designed to intimidate their targets into pleading guilty – while punishing them and their families with the process itself and financial ruin.”

“Most important,” writes Powell, “General Flynn was honest with the FBI agents. They knew he was – and briefed that to McCabe and other three different times.” However, “at McCabe’s directions, Agent Strzok and McCabe’s ‘Special Counsel’ Lisa Page, altered the 302 to create statements Weissmann, Mueller, Van Grack, and Zainab Ahmad could assert was false.” Essentially, “Only the FBI agents lied- and falsified documents. The crimes are theirs alone.”

Powell’s letter ends telling Obama, “These are just a few obvious and well-known examples to those paying any attention to criminal justice issues.” And “Finally, the ‘leaked’ comments from your alumni call further evinces your obsession with destroying a distinguished veteran of the United States Army who has defended the Constitution and this country ‘from all enemies, foreign and domestic,’ with the highest honor for thirty-three years.”

  1. Is it too much to ask that Democrats who put politics above law to face the same consequences as Republicans. The media covers for Dems but the rule of law should prevail. Why do only Republicans face the wrath of activist law enforcement and judges? GOP is targeted and in defense mode when in power, but also targeted when not in power.

  2. I wish we had a legal system that wasn’t a complete joke.

  3. Well done, Sidney, thank you.

    Obama’s tentacles run deep.

    Please notice Obama uses the word “perjury” regarding General Flynn. Yet, there were no charges of perjury.

    However, a few days after Obama leaked (on purpose) the word perjury, federal district judge Emmet Sullivan, detours from Constitutional dictates demanding he comply with Department of Justice Attorney General William Barr’s decision to dismiss the case.

    The only authority and responsibility in the hands of this judge is to close the case on the court’s records.

    But that won’t make headlines, create chaos, defy the rule of law or fall in line with Hussein’s “leak.”

    Furthermore, twenty-four times this very same judge on this very same case denied what he now demands. Twenty-four times he summarily refused to entertain input from non-parties.

    This unconstitutional demand only muddies water that had been cleared by the Department of Justice. This only undermines the Rule of Law. Exactly what Barack Hussein Obama, leaked.

    President Trump, was a gracious winner on inauguration day. He extended an olive branch to Hillary. But, his forgiveness has been met with the same hatred spewed from masses as they cried “Crucify Him.”

    The right must stay on offense, with one goal to expose every shadow, nook and corrupt cranny of the left’s dark agenda.

  4. Easy the Republicans have been push overs alway turning the other cheek. Rather than look bad strongly defending their views on anything. Until Trunp they would start crying and hide under the bed. That’s why the country got in such bad shape under democratic control. Alot of the problem was rino paul ryan kissing the Democrats ass the first two years of the Trump presidency.

  5. I would be so happy if Ms.Powell was A.G. or at least was allowed to clean up the DOJ. Just sweep it clean of all Weismann wannabes. If that is possible.
    Of course that is too good to be true.
    Bless her heart. She is a SOLID MARINE,
    A PIT BULL of righteousness !!!

  6. DemonRats are above the LAW..

  7. I think of a malignancy in every criminal attack by left. Their morality is to accomplish their mission of destroying all and every condition President Trump and his patriot’s have accomplished.

  8. I only hope that the investigation Durham and Barr are doing wraps up so we can see some Indictments and some Grand Jury action to get all these unmaskers especially OBAMA and BIDEN a into a Senate hearing, and . also get the SCOTUS to hear and rule on the Flynn case. We need this completed before the Democratic convention. Also it would be nice to subpoena SCHIFF and ask him to show us the “substantial evidence of Collusion” from the documents he has.

  9. You are 100% correct. The country needs a creative dynamic tension between Parties and their competing ideas to forge laws, programs and policies that can withstand the kiln of impassioned debate. The results of this process over the years has been some very good laws, programs and policies. When one Party completely dominates the other there can be nothing but problems and failures.

    Just think if the Democrats had their way we still might have slavery and the Civil Rights Act might have been killed in the Congress low those many decades ago. One Party rule is what the Communist system thrives, but mostly fails, on. Leftist ideology would be the death of participatory democracy and the start of elected tyrants constrained by nothing. Strict liberalism demands monolithic behavior by everyone within its sphere of control. It is in fact totally against what America stands for.

  10. After reading her book shortly after its publication I found the Muller investigation easy to dismiss just by the lawyers selected to participate and their over amped actions regarding anyone associated with Trump. This entire twisting of Justice was done before during the Enron case which Ms Powell worked tirelessly to correct.

    She had a template for destroying the bogus case against Gen. Flynn. This had been done before to Enron people and to a sitting Senator Ted Stevens by his political enemies in the DOJ.

    The DOJ for decades has crushed and/or jailed anyone who they targeted for whatever reasons. This time the political operators within the Obama Administration decided to utilize the DOJ’s ability to attack and destroy whomever they chose, to now attack the man they hated beyond rationality, Donald J Trump.

    Any other elected POTUS would have gone down in flames or resigned his/her office but the plotters picked on the wrong person to mug.using the FBI/DOJ/CIA assets. I don’t know how he has survived and turned the tables on these hubris ridden bureaucrats but he has up until now exposed their treason and still allowed the nation to move forward.

    Either God is with him or he is the most Machiavellian individual since Machiavelli himself. Media, leftist establishment, Hollywood, RINOS, Tech giants and all manner of talking heads are aligned against Pres. Trump. Like the energizer bunny he just keeps on keeping on.

    I was not a complete Trump supporter but as time has passed I’ve come to ignore his salesman talk, his past billionaire playboy lifestyle and his human flaws and been able to appreciate the fact that no other person in the US that I am aware of could have withstood this onslaught. He has so far come out without either being broken or grabbing, illegally, the powers of the military to sweep out his detractors and coup plotters within the last Administration and still within the gov’t. It is pretty amazing that we still have a functioning representative gov’t and Trump still seems to be adhering to the Role of Law while he laughs in the faces of the monsters who sought to eat him alive.

  11. How about our next Supreme Court Judge?

  12. Why hasn’t McCabe been charged with falsehoods—is there a reason? Weird! Maybe Barr and Durham are going to turn out to be busts.

  13. I think our nation could handle the prosecution of Clinton, Obama and their cohorts if the evidence is there to convict. We survived the impeachment and resignation of Nixon. If the hard core 35% of Americans decided to riot and revolt, then it would be the beginning of the civil war that will eventually become necessary anyway to restore the Republic that the Founding Fathers intended for us to have. I hope it doesn’t come to this,.

  14. I somewhat agree with you. Don’t forget that the majority of the media, business class and other elites strongly supported King George during the revolution. After the war and the formation of our government there was a period of turmoil and a lot of payback and violence. Many fled to Canada and or back to England. The nation was better off without them.

    These plotters their supporters and enablers do not constitute the core of the American spirit or the sacrifices given by Americans in past wars. They are in fact the “behind the lines” shirkers who have bedeviled our nation since its’ founding. Faceless D.C. denizens are part of the price we pay for delegating governmental administration through our elected officials. Those elected people have seriously dropped the ball when it comes to overseeing the alphabet soup of agencies who have the power to do what was attempted during the last campaign and for Trump’s first three years. Vote out RINO’s and Democrats or suffer the aftermath.

    A landslide and the shutting out of the career political operatives from any role in the gov’t after 2020 would be a great step in the right direction.

  15. I think it is about time that someone exposed the fact that Pres. Obama probably slept thru Harvard Law School. His night school lectures in Chicago morphed him into a Constitutional scholar. This though he never wrote anything that was peer reviewed or published. He never appeared before a Federal Court, an Appeals Court nor actually practiced law in any meaningful way. Media just declared him a Constitutional expert.

    Through out his presidency he has misstated simple legal axioms, spoken out on pending criminal cases before any Court decisions were arrived at. Something actual lawyers are loath to do. This phone call with supporters alone sounds like some “barroom” lawyer pontificating about something he has no clue about. All evidence points to Mr. Obama’s being a very poorly educated lawyer. Ms Powells letter is a total condemnation, explanation and exposure of his ignorance of even the most basic aspects of criminal law let alone the nuances of Constitutional principles underpinning American jurisprudence.

    Even his undergraduate work at Columbia seems to be less than stellar if anyone can even remember his being in any classes. Mr. Obama is a very glib person with the ability to recite bits and pieces of information to appear to have some depth of knowledge that he in fact does not have. A very usual trait of a confidence man. Just probe their banter a bit and ask a few in-depth questions and the individuals persona comes tumbling down. For me Pres. Obama has either been oversold by the media or he is a complete facade and allowed these projections by others to stand for his own purposes.

    Just deconstruct some of his elongated answers to presser questions and the emptiness, word salad content and lack of nuance it becomes apparent that he is either reciting something written for him or is spinning up the B.S. machine and babbling on to avoid being asked specific questions requiring some in depth knowledge about the subject.

    These charming posers and dilettantes are a dime a dozen. Problem is we had one for POTUS but he had a very authoritarian and personal mean streak that almost wrecked our democracy.

  16. Maybe McCabe is their star witness against Comey, Yates, Page, Lynch and others higher up in the plotters organization. Hard to excuse McCabe on the known facts and his conduct within the FBI. Barr and Durham were not born yesterday. IF nothing happens it might be because a massive prosecution of these people, Obama included, might just be too much for this severely divided nation to withstand.

    The media has conditioned Obama’s many passionate supporters to believe that somehow he was not involved in this “minor” breach of law by underlings whom he has no control over. This horror has been so downplayed and denied for so long by so many outlets that the vast majority of the American public, who have not followed this complex case, are either misinformed, don’t know or don’t care what was done in their names to topple Trump.

    Because they hate him anyway it is okay with them that illegal methods were utilized to bring him down. After all they cheered the Shakespeare play in Central Park where an actor playing Trump is stabbed to death. A copy of the severed head of Trump displayed by a sick comic resulted in applause. So do you think a prosecution of actual criminals and traitors will benefit our nation? We would have to imprison maybe 20% of the entire population who would not believe that justice was being administered. The entire media is siding with the coup plotters and even employes many, many of these same individuals. Obama has created the exact mess he started out to create when he said he would “fundamentally change America>”. He seems to have succeeded.

  17. I will keep my fingers crossed!
