Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, told Just the News this week that she is seeking total exoneration of her client from the Department of Justice in a case that has dragged on for years.

“We don't want a pardon,” she told John Solomon Reports. “We want an exoneration.” After stipulating that Flynn would still have the right to accept a pardon, she added, “We want this case dismissed in the interest of justice.”
Powell has long maintained that the government has stonewalled repeated requests for exculpatory evidence that she believes is contained in Flynn's 302 — a type of FBI report that summarizes interviews conducted with subjects.
“They're required to give us anything that’s favorable to the defense, and obviously they haven’t given us that for two years,” said Powell. “That alone would require dismissal of the case, for suppression of evidence.”
