(National Sentinel) Discovery: The federal judge overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s case against President Donald Trump’s short-lived national security adviser, Michael Flynn, may have just blown a massive hole in the Deep State’s attempts to railroad an honest man who has served his country well for decades.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Emmitt Sullivan demanded to see the FBI’s 302s — interview summaries — of agents’ ambush interview with Flynn on Jan. 24, 2017, just a few days after POTUS Trump was inaugurated.
According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton: “Big: Judge Sullivan, who is overseeing General Flynn’s case, demands to see the infamous FBI 302 and other FBI doc about the ambush Flynn interview set up by Yates, McCabe, and Strzok.”

This is a huge development because, as we reported yesterday, Mueller’s sentencing memo makes it very clear that the FBI agents sent to ‘interview’ Flynn — one of whom was, at the time, one of the bureau’s top counterintelligence officials, Peter Strzok — was a setup to purposely catch the former three-star Army general in a perjury trap as part of the James Comey-Loretta Lynch-Barack Obama-led operation to destabilize the incoming Trump administration.
According to a portion of the memo posted online, FBI agents were sent to question Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017, just four days after POTUS Donald Trump was inaugurated.
The memo makes it clear that Flynn had no idea he was being interrogated. What’s more, fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Comey’s second-in-command, instructed the agents — one of whom was former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, who has also been fired — not to inform Flynn he was being interrogated for the specific purpose of ensnaring him.
As for Sullivan, he’s obviously been suspicious of Mueller and his so-called “investigation” from the outset.
In February Sullivan issued an order indicating that exculpatory evidence may have been withheld by Mueller’s team in Flynn’s case.
As reported by The Federalist‘s Margot Cleveland:
Just a week ago, and thus before Sullivan quietly directed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team to provide Flynn’s attorneys “any exculpatory evidence,” Washington Examiner columnist Byron York detailed the oddities of Flynn’s case.
The next day, former assistant U.S. attorney and National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy connected more of the questionable dots. York added even more details a couple of days later. Together these articles provide the backdrop necessary to understand the significance of Sullivan’s order on Friday.
The order stems from a guilty plea Flynn entered in federal court last year after being indicted by Mueller’s prosecutors on Nov. 30, 2017, for lying to FBI agents.
The day after, for some reason, Flynn’s case was reassigned from federal Judge Rudolph Contreras to Sullivan, who then issued a standard order he issues in every case: Directing “the government to produce to defendant in a timely manner – including during plea negotiations – any evidence in its possession that is favorable to defendant and material either to defendant’s guilt or punishment.”
To review, Sullivan was the judge in the case of former Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, who was railroaded by the Bush Justice Department on a completely fabricated case that was eventually thrown out — though no federal prosecutors who worked on it were ever held accountable. And by the way, who oversaw the bogus case against Stevens? Robert Mueller.
— According to investigative journalist Paul Sperry, corrupt cops James Comey and Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s two most senior officials, allowed then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates to set up POTUS Trump’s first national security advisor, Michael Flynn — whom FBI officials and even Comey would testify did not lie to them during questioning.
More than that, however, Sperry notes that because Flynn was no longer under active investigation, there’s no possible way Trump could have obstructed justice in asking Comey to ‘go easy’ on his top security advisor.
— Sperry also reported that Senate investigators looking into all things ‘Russia’ suspect that McCabe may also have changed Flynn’s 302s:

Which brings us full-circle back to Sullivan’s order yesterday.
The Special Counsel must file its reply to Wednesday’s court filing by December 14th.
