Sidney Powell is the attorney who wrote Licensed to Lie, the tale of the Dept of Justice's crusade against Exxon Oil and their tax firm. She pretty well won that case and humiliated the DOJ folks that were involved. A couple of the same folks were on Robert Mueller's team. The judge is probably the worst that the prosecutors could have drawn from the hat, Judge Emmett Sullivan. He also was involved some of the Exxon case and really upset the apple cart. Interestingly, he's also the Judge that presided over the Feld Entertainment case against the HSUS et al in which Feld won something like $19 million and the legitimacy of the whole animal rights movement was called into question.
Sidney Powell’s Latest Motion In Michael Flynn’s Case Is A Russiagate Bombshell
By Margot Cleveland September 12, 2019
On Wednesday, the previously sealed Motion to Compel filed against federal prosecutors in the Michael Flynn case was made public with only minor redactions. Just the day before, during a hearing before federal judge Emmet Sullivan, Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, had highlighted some of the evidence prosecutors withheld from her defense team. Yesterday’s filing expanded exponentially on the areas of evidence Powell seeks and lays bare Powell’s bigger plan moving forward: to expose the breadth and depth of SpyGate and how flaying Flynn lay at the heart of the soft coup attempt.
In her Motion to Compel, Powell catalogued 40 categories of evidence the government has refused to turn over. She seeks a court order requiring federal prosecutors to provide the withheld evidence under Brady and its progeny. Brady and its offshoots require prosecutors to disclose material exculpatory and impeachment evidence to the defense team. And, as Judge Sullivan made clear during Tuesday’s hearing, that duty exists even though Flynn had already pleaded guilty and even though he had agreed that the government would not be required to provide him with further evidence.
