BREAKING: AG Barr Installs Outside Prosecutor to Review Abusive Case Against General Flynn
General Mike Flynn
US Attorney General Bill Barr has assigned an outside prosecutor to review the abusive case against General Mike Flynn.
Barr also assigned a handful of prosecutors to review other cases in the US Attorney’s office in DC.
US Attorney in St. Louis Jeff Jensen is one of the prosecutors handling Flynn’s case.
The New York Times reported:
Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned an outside prosecutor to scrutinize the criminal case against President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, according to people familiar with the matter.
Mr. Barr has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors to broadly review the handling of other politically sensitive national-security cases in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, the people said. The team includes at least one prosecutor from the office of the United States attorney in St. Louis, Jeff Jensen, who is handling the Flynn matter, as well as prosecutors from the office of the deputy attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen.
Recall, AG Barr recently assigned his top counsel Timothy Shea to take over the lingering Mueller cases.
Mueller’s abusive prosecutors went after General Flynn with a vengeance after Comey sent two FBI agents into the White House to ambush Flynn during the Trump transition.
Flynn’s phone calls to Russian Ambassador Kislyak were leaked to the Washington Post and Flynn was ultimately forced out of his job as NatSec Advisor.
The FBI agents who ambushed Flynn about his calls to Kislyak altered their 302 reports in an effort to take him down.
Flynn ended up pleading guilty to making a false statement to the feds after they threatened to go after his son.
General Flynn formally asked to withdraw his guilty plea last month and filed a motion to dismiss the case, accusing federal prosecutors of “egregious government misconduct.”
