General Michael Flynn pardoned by President Trump

Justice may not be fully served on those who put General Michael Flynn through the trials and tribulation he’s been put through for four years, but at least he is officially and irrevocably free from his charges. President Trump pardoned his former National Security Advisor, an expected move we reported about yesterday.

According to Just The News:

President Trump on Wednesday pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, bringing to an end a tumultuous four-year criminal case that felled the three-star general before prosecutors admitted they had wrongly pursued his case.

Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about talking with a Russian diplomat during the 2016 Trump administration transition period.

His attorney, Sidney Powell, had asked President Trump to hold off on pardoning him because she wanted to fully exonerate him through the court. But with her attention turned towards helping the President expose the voter fraud that appears to have cost him the election, a pardon was in order.

Now that General Michael Flynn is officially pardoned, it’s time for him and others to continue to pursue the conspiracy that was turned against him for the last four years. But that can come later. For now, it’s time to celebrate.

GSA Approves Biden Transition Funds

GSA Administrator Emily Murphy sent a letter to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden informing him that she was authorizing the release of funds to him for a potential presidential transition. While Murphy, who is a President Trump appointee, was careful to say she was not declaring a winner in the presidential election which is being contested by Trump, she cited “recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results” for her decision Monday.

Murphy said she was not pressured or given direction by anyone in the administration. However she said she received thousands of messages via phone, mail and online threatening herself, her family, staff and pets.

A copy of the letter was posted by CNN (full text below):

GSA Letter of Approval of Funds for Biden

Dear Mr. Biden:

As the Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, I have the ability under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, as amended, to make certain post-election resources and services available to assist in the event of a presidential transition. See 3 U.S.C. § 102 note (the “Act”). I take this role seriously and, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, am transmitting this letter today to make those resources and services available to you.

I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived to do what is right. Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official—including those who work at the White House or GSA—with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. I did, however, receive threats online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely. Even in the face of thousands of threats, I always remained committed to upholding the law.

Contrary to media reports and insinuations, my decision was not made out of fear or favoritism. Instead, I strongly believe that the statute requires that the GSA Administrator ascertain, not impose, the apparent president-elect. Unfortunately, the statute provides no procedures or standards for this process, so I looked to precedent from prior elections involving legal challenges and incomplete counts. GSA does not dictate the outcome of legal disputes and recounts, nor does it determine whether such proceedings are reasonable or justified. These are issues that the Constitution, federal laws, and state laws leave to the election certification process and decisions by courts of competent jurisdiction. I do not think that an agency charged with improving federal procurement and property management should place itself above the constitutionally-based election process. I strongly urge Congress to consider amendments to the Act.

As you know, the GSA Administrator does not pick or certify the winner of a presidential election. Instead, the GSA Administrator’s role under the Act is extremely narrow: to make resources and services available in connection with a presidential transition. As stated, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request. The actual winner of the presidential election will be determined by the electoral process detailed in the Constitution. Section 7 of the Act and Public Law 116-159, dated October 1, 2020, which provides continuing appropriations until December 11, 2020, makes $6,300,000 available to you to carry out the provisions of Section 3 of the Act. In addition, $1,000,000 is authorized, pursuant to Public Law 116-159, to provide appointee orientation sessions and a transition directory. I remind you that Section 6 of the Act imposes reporting requirements on you as a condition for receiving services and funds from GSA.

If there is anything we can do to assist you, please contact Ms. Mary D. Gibert, the Federal Transition Coordinator.
Sincerely,

Emily W. Murphy
Administrator
U.S. General Services Administration

Trump Team of Lawyers Hold Historic Press Conference Laying out

Well that escalated quickly. In a length and detailed press briefing, the Trump campaign legal team detailed allegations and evidence surrounding claims widespread election fraud responsible for stealing hundreds of thousands of votes from Donald Trump.

As Sharyl Attkisson reports, Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani alleged the evidence shows Trump was elected in a “landslide.”

“This is real. It is not made up. There is nobody here that is engaged in fantasies…I can prove to you that he won Pennsylvania by 150,000 votes…The people who did this have committed one of the worst crimes that I’ve ever seen or heard.”

– Rudy Giuliani

Among other matters, they discussed sworn affidavits filed in court.

During the presser, Giuliani also said there is a pattern in the voting data that suggests “a plan from a centralized place” to commit voter fraud in Democrat-run cities. Giuliani also said the Trump campaign will likely bring a lawsuit to Arizona.

They also said they have testimony from an insider who they say unearthed provable fraud regarding voting machines and software used in multiple states.

They describe a process of vote switching as well as “trashing” Trump votes through a simple drag and click process.

Additionally, they say this election involved a manipulation of the ballot count in a foreign country.

“This is a massive, coordinated, well-funded effort to deprive we the people of the United States of our fundamental right under the U.S. Constitution to preserve this Constitution republic we all cherish.”

– Sidney Powell

And they describe multiple incidents where the number of votes cast far exceeded the population of the public in that county, including children.

Democrats deny there is any evidence of “widespread fraud.” They and the news media have broadly called the election for Joe Biden and urged President Trump to concede.

Surprise, surprise, not everyone was buying what Giuliani and Powell were selling.

“You are watching the last gasp of this legal effort by the president,” Wendy Weiser, director of the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, told ABC News.

“This has been a flailing legal effort that hasn’t raised any real issues from the get-go. We all knew how this movie would end. If I was writing the screenplay I would end it here.”

Below you can watch the entire news conference and hear the claims of evidence to make up your own mind as to what you think about it.

As we detailed ahead of the press briefing, with many questioning where this going next, though JPM’s Michael Cembalest admits there is still a chancePresident Trump’s legal team is holding a press briefing to outline their strategy.

Wisconsin Elections Commission, After Seeing Trump’s Recount Objections, holds Emergency Meeting to Change the Recount Manual and Make Objections Harder to Make

Andrew Hitt, the Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, tweeted the breaking news: “The Wisconsin Elections Commission, after seeing President Trump’s recount petition and objections, is trying to change the recount manual at an emergency meeting tonight at 6 pm to make objections harder to make.”

As reported earlier, the Trump campaign announced Wednesday that it has filed for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, Milwaukee and Dane.

Trump Lawyer Harassed and Threatened by Attorney Working For Law Firm Representing Pennsylvania Secretary of State

Another one of Trump’s lawyers was harassed and threatened for the ‘crime’ of representing the President of the United States.

Last week the anti-American hacks at The Lincoln Project doxxed and harassed two of President Trump’s Pennsylvania lawyers prompting them to withdraw from a voter fraud case.

Now another one of President Trump’s lawyers had her life threatened after she filed a civil rights lawsuit to ensure a clean election in Pennsylvania.

Philadelphia lawyer Linda Kerns said in a Sunday night court filing that she was harassed and threatened by a lawyer working for Kirkland & Ellis.

“Since this case was filed, undersigned counsel has been subjected to continuous harassment in the form of abuse e-mails, phone calls, physical and economic threats, and even accusations of treason – all for representing the President of the United States’ campaign in this litigation,” wrote Kerns in her filing.

“On November 14, 2020 at 8:43 am, an attorney at Kirkland & Ellis left a one-minute voicemail for undersigned counsel. The voicemail, which has been provided to counsel of record from Kirkland & Ellis in this case and will be provided to the Court via email upon request, speaks for itself and by any measure falls afoul of standards of professional conduct.”

Kirkland & Ellis’s lawyer tried to deny one of their attorneys harassed and threatened Linda Kerns before finally admitting it and then defending the conduct.

“Contacted about this message, Secretary Boockvar’s counsel first opined that despite the caller identification on the voicemail the call may not have been placed from Kirkland & Ellis. Confronted with the fact that the firm issues cell phones to its lawyers and it should be easy to check a directory to confirm that this number belongs to one of his colleagues, opposing counsel finally admitted that it did, but then excused the conduct by saying the lawyer (who works in the same office) does not work on this case or in litigation, and offering that the call was “discourteous” and apologizing for wasting time.”

Kerns asked for the Court to apply “what sanction is appropriate, and respectfully ask for an order to show cause for the above-described conduct of Secretary Bookvar’s counsel.”
