Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton dropped a huge bombshell on the Flynn case that may expose the plan by the FBI and Mueller’s team to catch General Flynn in a perjury trap. Fitton retweeted a tweet by Politico’s Josh Gerstein that reveals an order by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan

Here’s a close up of the order by Judge Emmet Sullivan ordering “the government” to provide him with the 302’s or memoranda relevant to the circumstances discussed on the defendant’s sentencing memorandum by no later than 3 pm on December 14th.
The Gateway Pundit reports – Judge Sullivan, who is assigned to General Flynn’s case is demanding to see the FBI summary 302 report about the ambush Flynn interview according to a new court filing.
Counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok showed up to the White House on January 24th, 2017 along with Special Agent Joe Pientka to interview General Flynn; the meeting was arranged by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Flynn was told not have his lawyer with him and soon after the FBI agents began to question him he realized he was being ambushed over his phone calls to Russian Ambassador Kislyak.
The FBI agents who ambushed General Flynn on January 24th, 2017 didn’t write their 302 reports on their interview until 7 months later on August 22nd — this is also AFTER Rosenstein wrote his August 2nd memo expanding Mueller’s scope.
Today, during an appearance on America’s Newsroom on Fox News, former US Prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told hosts, Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith, that General Flynn was ALWAYS going to get a NO JAIL sentence, calling it the “biggest feint of all time”. McCarthy said there’s not a federal judge in America that would give him jail time, saying he committed a “process crime” that comes with a 0-6 months sentence. McCarthy reminded everyone that General Flynn is a first offender with a “30-year history of decorated service to the United States.” McCarthy pointed out the propaganda game Meuller is playing with the public when he asked for what the judge is going to do anyway,” to not give him a jail sentence. McCarthy claims Mueller’s going to claim that he’s going to bat for Flynn because he gave them “explosive cooperation”, and that he used documents that were blacked out all over the place to make it look like there’s redacted information Flynn gave them underneath the blacked out copy on the documents.
Oh, the tricks the Deep State plays…

Is Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan about to bust the truth behind Flynn’s admission of guilt wide open?
Politico is reporting – Adding new details to the extent of Flynn’s cooperation, his lawyers said he spent about 62 hours and 45 minutes meeting with the government. Flynn also produced thousands of documents for the Justice Department, including materials before he pleaded guilty dealing with his two security companies. He also made five additional document productions to the government after his plea agreement last December.
Flynn’s submission says that he accepts responsibility for the false statements he made to the FBI, but it is notably silent about his reasons for doing so and what he was trying to accomplish by misleading the agents.
“As General Flynn has frankly acknowledged in his own words, he recognizes that his actions were wrong and he accepts full responsibility for them,” the defense filing says, pointing to statements Flynn made to the court’s probation officer that are not in the public record.
The memo also comes close to suggesting that the misstatements at the center of his guilty plea may have been inadvertent and the result of the way in which his initial FBI interview on the subject arose just a few days after the inauguration and well before there was a publicly acknowledged investigation into Russian interference.
Flynn’s defense also calls attention to the roles played in his case by two former FBI officials who are frequently pilloried by President Donald Trump and his supporters — former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former agent Peter Strzok, once the top agent on the Russia investigation.
The suggestion that Flynn is the subject of a politically driven cabal led by the FBI wasn’t lost on observers.
“Pretty clear subtext in this Flynn sentencing memo that his lawyers think McCabe and the FBI set him up,” Matthew Miller, who was a Justice Department spokesman during the administration of President Barack Obama, wrote on Twitter.
In their plea for leniency, Flynn’s attorneys also tried to distinguish their client’s case from the two other people who have already been sentenced for lying to the FBI in connection with the Mueller investigation: former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and Dutch attorney Alex Van Der Zwaan.
Papadopoulos, who was released last week from a federal prison camp after a 14-day sentence, had a different situation because he had been “specifically notified of the seriousness of the investigation,” Flynn’s lawyers wrote. They also noted that Papadopoulos was warned that lying to investigators was a federal offense.
As for Van Der Zwaan, who spent 30 days in prison before being deported, the Flynn attorneys argued that he was a “trained attorney who was represented by counsel” during his FBI interview. They also said Mueller’s inquiry by the time Van Der Zwaan committed his offense was a “publicly disclosed, full-bore investigation” dealing with the 2016 election.
