A judge is demanding Special Counsel Robert Mueller turn over any evidence that could exonerate General Mike Flynn before his sentencing hearing later this year.
President Trump’s former National Security Adviser plead guilty last year to lying to the FBI, a deal that may now be in danger.
According to Gateway Pundit:
“Judge Nap says Judge Sullivan must suspect a defect in General Flynn’s guilty plea.
Judge Napolitano: “So Mike Flynn pleads guilty. A new judge comes in. It’s time for sentencing. Bob Mueller delays sentencing until May. That’s normal. You have a cooperating witness. You don’t want to sentence him until after the cooperation is finished. And then the judge on his own, not in response to any application from General Flynn’s lawyer says, “By the way I want all exculpatory evidence.” Evidence that could help Flynn or hurt the government to be turned over to Flynn’s lawyers. Why would we want that when General Flynn has already pleaded guilty. That is unheard of.
He must suspect a defect in the guilty plea. Meaning, he must have reason to believe General Flynn pleaded guilty for some reason other than guilt. Do people plead guilty for a reason other than guilt? (Yes.)… So now the question arises: Was he guilty? Did he lie to the FBI? Did the FBI agents who interviewed him, one of them who was Peter Strzok believe that he lied or did he say, ‘We don’t see anything wrong.’… We don’t know the answers to that. But it may very well come out that as a result of Judge Sullivan, a very courageous federal judge in DC, ordering this information to be reviewed.”
On Sunday investigative journalist Mike Cernovich reported that former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe altered far left FBI investigator Peter Strzok’s notes on his interview with General Michael Flynn.”
