Congressman Louie Gohmert filed an Amicus Brief alongside Reps. Biggs, Johnson, Flores, Hice, Gosar, Budd, and more supporting the Department of Justice’s decision to dismiss the case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
“The criminal case against General Flynn should immediately be dismissed. It is outrageous that federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is working against the Justice Department’s request to drop its case against General Michael Flynn. Additionally, the ‘Watergate Prosecutors’ who provided a ‘friend of the court’ brief in the Flynn case are certainly not friends of the court nor of justice, but instead are hypocrites arguing exactly the opposite of what Watergate prosecutors successfully argued in 1975″ said Congressman Gohmert.
“In the Cowan case in 1975, they demanded the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals order the federal trial judge to dismiss the case in which they had filed a motion to dismiss, but the trial judge was insisting on going forward. Disingenuously, the Watergate Prosecutors failed to even cite that case before the DC Circuit though it is on point. This type of hypocrisy should not be happening in our judicial system by people who have shown themselves to be enemies of the administration and supportive of the attempted coups using the most fraudulent prosecutorial tactics in memory. Precedent, the Constitution, and integrity all speak with one loud voice: Stop the abuse of the law, do not permit Judge Sullivan to perform executive and legislative duties in addition to his judicial job, do not reward dishonest law breakers in the Justice Department, prosecute those who used the DOJ, FBI and Intelligence community to commit crimes, and dismiss the fraudulent, extortive case against General Flynn.”

BARR TALK: The AG Says FBI Extended Probe for ‘Express Purpose’ of ‘Laying Perjury Trap’ Against General Flynn
Attorney General Bill Barr weighed-in over the weekend on the Department of Justice’s decision to drop all charges against former NSA Michael Flynn; saying the FBI extended their probe to “trap” the General.
“They were closing the investigation in December… There’s no mystery. They initially tried some theories of how they can open another investigation. Then they found out they haven’t closed the earlier investigation. They kept it open with the express purpose of trying to catch, lay a perjury trap for General Flynn,” said the Attorney General.

FLYNN ATTORNEY: Entire Plot Against Flynn ‘Set Up Within the FBI and the Oval Office with President Obama
Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s attorney said the entire perjury trap reached the Oval Office this week; raising new questions over whether President Barack Obama was aware of the plot against the senior Trump official.
“The Department of Justice announced Friday it was dropping the investigation into former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn. On Fox News’ ‘Sunday Morning Futures,’ Flynn’s attorney gave some shocking insight into why the case may have been dropped. Flynn’s lead attorney, Sidney Powell said of the FBI’s tactics, ‘these agents specifically schemed and planned with each other how to not tip him off, that he was even the person being investigated,’” reports GreggJarrett.com.
“The whole thing was orchestrated and set up within the FBI, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [Former CIA Director John] Brennan, and in the Oval Office meeting that day with President Obama,” said Sidney Powell.
