FINALLY: Michael Flynn withdraws guilty plea, accuses prosecutors of 'retaliation'
15 Jan 2020 — #SpyGate
Michael Flynn filed a court motion Tuesday seeking to withdraw his guilty plea in a case that originated with the special counsel's investigation.
After originally pleading guilty over two years ago, General Flynn moved to withdrawal his guilty plea, citing “bad faith, vindictiveness, and breach of the plea agreement” by the government.
“The prosecution has shown abject bad faith in pure retaliation against Mr. Flynn since he retained new counsel,” according to Flynn's court filing. “In pure spite, the government retaliated and sought to rescind its judicial admissions that Mr. Flynn was not a co-conspirator” of former business partner, Bijan Rafiekian.
We knew in 2017 that Michael Flynn did NOT lie to the FBI.— Kambree Kawahine Koa - Text EMPOWER to 88022 (@KamVTV) January 15, 2020
Some of us have to speak up on his behalf.
General Flynn dropping his plea agreement heightens the importance of his lawyer getting Joseph Mifsud’s phones delivered to the DOJ some months back. We can finally now understand why the General and I had the two same spies after us: Mifsud and Halper. Fates intertwined.— George Papadopoulos (@GeorgePapa19) January 15, 2020
Federal prosecutors committed felony crimes by demanding General Flynn lie under oath. These unethical prosecutors must be disbarred and indicted. https://t.co/uW6hhLX4O6— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) January 15, 2020
