Flynn viewed the prosecution efforts to subpoena records and maybe testimony from Flynn Jr as a veiled threat or some kind of a pressure tactic to get him to cop a plea.

We agree, Theo.

President Trump is showing the USA just how utterly worthless career politicians have been in Washington DC for decades.

It's my impression that for many years the Chinese have been buying a lot of those high end apartments, and/or a lot of New York apartments in general. They were largely absentee owners. At night, you can look out a window at neighboring apartments buildings and see very few lights on. China's domestic conditions, both economic and political may be playing a sizable part here. New York real estate is a global market.

Remarkable interview between the attorney for Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell, on WMAL radio with Larry O’Conner. Ms. Powell describes the current status of the case and the filings to withdraw the guilty plea. Additionally, Ms. Powell drops a bombshell in that they have a witness to the original Flynn-302 the government says doesn’t exist.

O’Conner does a great interview because he understands the background and details to the case. His probing questions allow Ms. Powell to share valuable insight.

The original FBI report is reported to have statements to the effect that Michael Flynn was not lying. The prosecution says no such FBI FD-302 report exists; however, Ms. Powell now shares that they have a witness to it.

What franklin warned about, indeed,

Threadkiller

Hannity’s hysterical interview portrayed the threat against the son as part of the coercion to force Flynn to lie. It is no wonder Powell responded in a non-commitment fashion. In the O’Connor interview she explains that the coercion was for Flynn’s initially guiltily plea. The request to lie came later in the timeline and Hannity, as usual, botched it up.

I do recommend listening to the whole interview. It is only 15min.

Rocco

Good morning,

I doubt you'll ever find documented proof that Mueller threatened Flynn with his sons indictment. So I'll believe his lawyer who's speaking for him. In a letter to AG Barr, Powell writes

Suddenly, SCO was making extreme threats and placing enormous pressure on General Flynn to enter a guilty plea. Sometime after Mueller was notified by the IG of the extremely biased Strzok-Page text messages, Mueller went to Rosenstein to get authority to target Michael Flynn Jr.

Flynn Jr, who had a four month old baby, was required to produce his phones and computers. Suddenly, General Flynn was threatened with the public arrest, search of his home, the indictment of his son, the Manafort treatment, etc.

https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.dcd.191592/gov.uscourts.dcd.191592.122.2.pdf

TK:

Do I understand correctly that Team Mueller's mandate was broadened for the specific purpose of going after Flynn, Jr., a pursuit that never went beyond a few token document demands?

I actually thought Mueller's portfolio was expanded for the Manafort prosecution, to avoid Manafort's charge that Team Mueller was working outside its assigned bailiwick, so I was surprised when someone connected it to the Flynns. Was Mueller's charge expanded more than once?

Hoping you know the answers, so that I don't have to go google them for myself!

Threadkiller

I haven’t fully read Rocco’s link, JMH, but that is what she asserts in his quote. The timeline of events and the players are slowly coming out.

Threadkiller

Rereading your question, JMH, I now get the query. I do not know if it was a specific request to get Flynn jr or if Flynn jr was part of a separate request to expand Mueller’s mandate.

KevlarKid

Powell's comment about "Next Friday will be epic." alluded to forthcoming disclosures about Federalie conduct of the case against Flynn.

"Americans are right to be concerned because, in my opinion, these are boilerplate tactics for investigating and jailing citizens without trial."

From my notes of the Powell-Levin interview.

Rocco

JMH, Yep.

Getting Rosenstein to authorize adding Mike Flynn Jr. to the target list (scope memo) meant the special counsel could threaten General Flynn with the indictment of his son as a co-conspirator tied to the Turkish lobbying issue (which they did) if he doesn’t agree to a plea. Remember: “jointly undertaken activity“.

TK:

Yes, if I had refreshed before posting, I''d have seen the answer. Even if one does not believe Flynn's lawyer, I certainly think the idea that Flynn Jr. was used as leverage cannot be dismissed as unsupported conspiracy talk, or jumping to wholly unwarranted conclusions.

The really big question mark in my mind is why Flynn's sentencing was postponed so many times. I can certainly see why Flynn might agree to putting off the day of reckoning, either hoping for some sort of exoneration or just being unsure what that sentence might be and preferring to stay out of potential jail as long as possible. Was the prosecution using uncertainty about his sentencing to leverage his cooperation long after his guilty plea? It's my impression that the postponements were requested by the prosecution team. What did they need that time for?

Ol' Yeller argued multiple times that Mueller's office was blatantly unconstitutional by having ad hoc US attorneys who'd never been approved by the Senate.

To search for an actual crime. Mueller’s whole sham took forever for the same reason.

JMH @ 11:27

My answer to all of it is simple, and has not changed from day one: EVERYTHING Mueller did was illegitimate and unconstitutional and corrupt, and everyone under him is a traitor and should be spending their life in prison for sedition. It’s all part of an attempted coup against a legitimately elected President, with an effort for maximum collateral damage against anyone they could drag into their net and ruin.

And there is absolutely nothing anyone can say or show me to change that opinion at this point, short of God Himself appearing to me in my living room and telling me I’m wrong.

Trump was never nervous about Mueller because he was completely innocent. He didn't claim executive privilege on anything unlike Slick.

James D:

I don't disagree with you, but that doesn't explain the how. I don't know much about Barr's new rulz, but assuming, as reported, that he has stiffened up the protocols for investigating a presidential campaign (and sitting president?), that doesn't even begin to address the fundamental corruption that really made it possible. It's like adding "layers of editors." Ditto for disappointment over allowing Wray to appoint an anti-Trump dead ender to oversee the FISA "reforms." I hate to think the Barr is dressing windows, but then his defense of Executive Branch prerogatives can cover a multitude of sins.

Well, I am "rate-limited" on Twitter. Does anyone know what that means, except that I can't get in?

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The rate limit is imposed by Twitter. It's related to the rate that data is pulled into the app. All third party Twitter apps (basically any Twitter app that isn't the native Twitter app or TweetDeck , also owned by Twitter) are limited in the amount of data calls they can make to Twitter's API.

- google search result

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

From twitter:

Per User or Per Application

Rate limiting of the standard API is primarily on a per-user basis — or more accurately described, per user access token. If a method allows for 15 requests per rate limit window, then it allows 15 requests per window per access token.

When using application-only authentication, rate limits are determined globally for the entire application. If a method allows for 15 requests per rate limit window, then it allows you to make 15 requests per window — on behalf of your application. This limit is considered completely separately from per-user limits.
15 Minute Windows

Rate limits are divided into 15 minute intervals. All endpoints require authentication, so there is no concept of unauthenticated calls and rate limits.

There are two initial buckets available for GET requests: 15 calls every 15 minutes, and 180 calls every 15 minutes.
HTTP Headers and Response Codes

Use the HTTP headers in order to understand where the application is at for a given rate limit, on the method that was just utilized.

Note that the HTTP headers are contextual. When using app-only auth, they indicate the rate limit for the application context. When using user-based auth, they indicate the rate limit for that user-application context.

x-rate-limit-limit: the rate limit ceiling for that given endpoint
x-rate-limit-remaining: the number of requests left for the 15 minute window

Since you're on Spotify one of my favorite pianists that receives short shrift from even the cognoscenti is Howard Riley who has a lot of recordings under his name.
