Judge Presiding over Michael Flynn Criminal Case is Recused: Court

Compiled by Lisa Phillips of OpDeepState.com

UPDATED December 13, 2017

By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr.  The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content.

A sting was set up to see if Adam Schiff (D-CA) would leak false information to CNN regarding Wikileaks’ email to Donald Trump, Junior.  Each nugget of disinformation exposes a specific leaker.  Each trail used in the sharing of that disinformation exposes the enabling media.  The White Hat plants the fake news seed, and then watches to see where, when, how, to-whom, and from-whom, it shows up.

Keep in mind, Representative Adam Schiff is -as an outcome of his minority ranking on the House Intel Committee- a member of the elite congressional oversight “Gang of Eight”.

This is a VERY BIG deal.  The Gang of Eight holds oversight on every covert intelligence operation going on around the world.  The Go8 oversee the NSA, CIA, FBI, DNI, and every single intelligence unit and operation.  The Go8 are the only group with oversight on the CIA action from Presidential Finding Memos authorizing covert operations.

Current membership United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA)

Judge Rudolph Contreras just recused himself from the court set to sentence General Michael Flynn.  Contreras is on the FISA court.  Conflict of interest, maybe?

(Reuters) – The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia judge presiding over the criminal case for President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has been recused from handling the case, a court spokeswoman said on Thursday.

According to a court filing, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, who presided over a Dec. 1 hearing where Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russia, will no longer handle the case.

Court spokeswoman Lisa Klem did not say why Contreras was recused, and added that the case was randomly reassigned.

Reuters could not immediately learn the reason for the recusal, or reach Contreras.

An attorney for Flynn declined to comment.

Now, Flynn’s sentencing will be overseen by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. Sullivan was appointed by former Democratic President Bill Clinton.

Flynn was the first member of Trump’s administration to plead guilty to a crime uncovered by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging probe into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential collusion by Trump aides. Russia has denied meddling in the election and Trump has dismissed any suggestion of collusion.

Flynn has agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s ongoing investigation.

A sentencing date has not yet been set, but the parties are due to return to court on February 1 for a status report hearing.

Contreras was appointed to the bench in 2012 by former Democratic President Barack Obama.

He was also appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in May 2016 for a term lasting through 2023.

That court issues warrants that allow Justice Department officials to wiretap individuals, a process that has been thrown into the spotlight amid the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election.

The most recent controversy related to FISA warrants involves Peter Strzok, a senior FBI agent who was removed from the Russia investigation for exchanging text messages with a colleague that expressed anti-Trump views.

At a hearing on Thursday at the House Judiciary Committee, Republican lawmaker Jim Jordan pressed FBI Director Christopher Wray on whether a former British spy’s dossier of allegations of Russian financial and personal links to Trump’s campaign and associates was used by Strzok to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Trump’s transition team.

Flynn plead guilty in federal court last week for lying to the FBI in January about his contacts with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Flynn was charged on one count of “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI about communications exchanged with Kislyak shortly after Trump took office.

Flynn said he is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

It was just last April 2016 – that John Roberts appointed Contreras to his other job – sitting on the FISA Court.   Was Contreras involved in approving the FBI wiretaps on Paul Manafort – based on the false Fusion GPS dossier paid for by Hillary and the DNC?   If the FBI knew it was lying to the FISA Court – the whole house of cards tumbles.

The whole fake investigation of Russian collusion in the 2016 US Presidential election is in the CIA-run main stream media to cover up for the fact that Hillary Clinton tried to rig the vote.  She was certain she would win the election, and had a multi-million dollar victory party planned, and the shock came into play when white hat patriots found the code in the computer and removed it to allow for a fair and valid election, free from hacking.
