    Michael Flynn moves to withdraw guilty plea, citing 'bad faith' by government

    Michael Flynn moves to withdraw guilty plea, citing '''bad faith''' by government | Fox News


    Former national security adviser Michael Flynn moved Tuesday to withdraw his guilty plea for lying to the FBI in the Russia probe, citing "bad faith" by the government.

    The court filing came just days after the Justice Department reversed course to recommend up to six months of prison time in his case, alleging he was not fully cooperating or accepting responsibility for his actions.

    But, in Tuesday’s court filing, his legal team said he moved to withdraw his plea "because of the government's bad faith, vindictiveness and breach of the plea agreement."

    "The prosecution has shown abject bad faith in pure retaliation against Mr. Flynn since he retained new counsel," Flynn’s attorneys wrote in the filing. "This can only be because with new, unconflicted counsel, Mr. Flynn refused to lie for the prosecution."

    The filing continued:"Justice is not a game, and there should be no room for such gamesmanship in the Department of Justice."

    In the court filing, Flynn's lawyers said the Justice Department is attempting to "rewrite history" by withdrawing its recommendation that he be sentenced to probation and by suggesting he had not been forthcoming or cooperative.

    I hope Flynn wins. The state's case is very thin.

    The guy who got fired for lying is mad that people still believe he is lying. Spends more money to prove he's not lying when other people don't want to work with him m.

    Shocking revelation.

    Considering his bad faith, I suspect it is unlikely that the judge will accept his withdrawal.

    It's a shame that James Comey didn't just let him go like Trump told him to. A shame indeed.

    He's toast. Hope they tack on a couple more months when he's sentenced.

    The guy on whom the FBI lied (altering interview 302's), the same guy the FBI agents stated he didn't lie to them, I hope the judge permits his withdraw of his guilty plea, as it was made under threat and duress. You know? Like fairness and justice?

    Or are some willing to acquiesces to to government lying, and then take the plea the government dictates?

    You mean more like in fairy tales and fantasy land. The agents stated no such thing and there was no duress. They actually gave him multiple prompts and chances to reconsider and change his answers because they weren't matching up with the information they had. But he didn't. He lied. Plain and simple.

    The other day I was trying to make a list of all the people associated with Trump whether his campaign, his transition team etc. that had to obtain expensive lawyers to represent them through the number of times they were called to testify over what turned out to be bogus charges after the Mueller Report was released. These people many of them were left with hefty lawyer bills and will be paying on them for years.
    Horowitz report I can't help but think of all those persons that were low hanging fruit in the Trump campaign that our intel agencies under Obama that illegally caused them grief by setting them up and the lawyer fees all of them entailed because of illegal surveillance.

    Comey has publicly admitted to setting up Flynn.

    A favorite tactic of Mueller was to indict someone who was viewed as a threat by the swamp Mueller represents, and drag out court proceedings until that person went bankrupt from paying lawyer's fees. Mueller then directed that the charges be dropped.

    I'm not a lawyer, but it seems it might be easier for Trump to pardon him if he claims innocence.
