Michael Flynn is a fool

From the WashingtonPost

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn asked a federal judge Tuesday evening for permission to withdraw his guilty plea of lying to the FBI in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Russian election interference, alleging that prosecutors breached his cooperation agreement by demanding his false testimony.

The stunning reversal — more than two years after Flynn pleaded guilty Dec. 1, 2017, and two weeks before he faces sentencing — threatens to sidetrack, if not derail, the prosecution of the highest-ranking Trump official charged and one of the first to cooperate with Mueller’s office.

Any change in plea must be approved by a judge.

Attorneys for Flynn alleged that after the former adviser to President Trump switched defense teams last June, prosecutors demanded that he falsely admit that he knowingly lied in filing forms with the Justice Department that hid his lobbying firm’s work for the government of Turkey.

“Michael T. Flynn hereby moves to withdraw his plea because of the government’s bad faith, vindictiveness, and breach of the plea agreement,” defense attorney Sidney Powell wrote.

Powell asked U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in Washington to postpone the former Army lieutenant general’s sentencing until at least Feb. 27, “to allow time for the government to respond . . . and for Mr. Flynn to provide the additional briefing he needs to protect the record and his constitutional rights.”

Flynn had a sweet deal — he avoided jail time and his son (who is as stupid and as guilty as Flynn) would not be prosecuted.  Some genius in the Trump Freak Show convinced Flynn to dump his lawyer and go with this fool who plays a lawyer on Fox.

The judge no doubt will drop the plea deal, send Flynn to jail and open prosecution of his son.
