(Tea Party PAC) – There have been quite a few folks involved in the Trump administration who have later found themselves to be in a bit of hot water legally speaking. This, of course, hasn’t reflected too well on the president, but to be honest, he’s the one who took action by removing these folks once he found out what they were involved in, which is a proper response to corruption.
Contrast that with the way the Democratic Party has handled corruption and allegations of abuse of power, and you’ll see who has been doing things the right way. It isn’t the Democrats.
Just look at how they’ve all but ignored former Vice President Joe Biden’s abuse of power in the whole Ukraine scandal that suddenly everyone has forgotten about. Using your political clout to have someone fired in order to protect your kid from an investigation seems like something illegal, wouldn’t you agree?
Now, along those lines, General Mike Flynn’s team of attorneys are planning to ask Judge Sullivan to toss out the entire DOJ case against him due to “egregious government misconduct and in the interest of justice.”
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Sidney Powell and two of Flynn’s other attorneys responded to the government’s Surreply and accused them of not addressing the Brady Material that is still being withheld from the defendant.
The Justice Department on Friday responded to Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell’s motion to compel production of Brady Material and to hold prosecutors in contempt.
Sidney Powell filed a motion a couple weeks ago revealing that General Flynn was indeed set up by the FBI with an ambush, damaging leaks and altered 302 reports.
Powell revealed that former FBI lawyer Lisa Page EDITED General Mike Flynn’s 302 report, then lied to the DOJ about the edits.
A 302 summary report consists of contemporaneous notes taken by an FBI agent when interviewing a subject.
“Lisa Page, Special Counsel to Deputy Director McCabe, resigned; she edited Mr. Flynn’s 302 and was part of a small, high-level group that strategically planned his ambush.” the filing said.
The DOJ Friday argued in a surreply that Sidney Powell’s motion should be denied because there were “no material changes made after 2/10/2017 to the draft of the January 24 interview report.”
However, there is evidence to the contrary.
“In conclusion, yes, the government engaged in conduct so shocking to the conscious and so inimical to our system of justice that it requires the dismissal of the charges for outrageous government conduct,” the filing said.
Flynn’s lawyers did not give a specific time when the motion would be filed.
“At the appropriate time, Mr. Flynn will file a separate motion asking that the Court dismiss the prosecution for egregious government misconduct and in the interest of justice. Mr. Flynn is entitled to discovery of the materials he has requested in these motions and brief that will help him support such a motion.”

Government misconduct seems to have become the default setting for anyone on the left who happens to occupy a seat or position in public service.
It’s about time we cleaned house in our government and helped oust folks who are not doing their duty and are abusing the very system and people they are supposed to be serving. Public service isn’t something that should lead to a whole lot of wealth. The fact that being a politician and serving in this sort of capacity nets one a substantial payday is shameful in and of itself.
