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.”
