Sidney Powell, the attorney for Michael Flynn, argued the prosecution against the former National Security Advisor should be dismissed for withholding exculpatory evidence in an interview Tuesday night on FOX News' 'Hannity.'
Powell also told viewers to "stay tuned" because more information will become public record as the process plays out.
"I don't want to speak now to things that are not a matter of public record, but stay tuned because more and more will become apparent as we proceed through the litigation," Powell said.
SIDNEY POWELL, ATTORNEY FOR MICHAEL FLYNN: We know that Mr. Mueller got a letter from Mr. Rosenstein that allowed him to target Michael Flynn Jr., and there was significant pressure put on General Flynn to enter a guilty plea while they were hiding all the evidence that showed he had not been an agent of Russia.
The plan right now is not to withdraw the guilty plea, per se, but to have the entire prosecution dismissed because of the egregious misconduct...
HANNITY: So [the FBI] withhold the exculpatory information... then the agents that interviewed him didn't think he lied. You either say you lied or we're going after your kids. So I am just guessing that a soldier, a man of honor said I'm not going to let my kid go down for something I didn't do. I'll dive on the sword. Why do I imagine that is the scenario that really unfolded?
POWELL: When you put together the fact that Mr. Mueller got the letter authorizing him to target Michael Flynn Jr., and they had seized Michael Flynn Jr.'s computers and electronic devices and those things, it’s not too hard to imagine that that might have happened.
I don't want to speak now to things that are not a matter of public record, but stay tuned because more and more will become apparent as we proceed through the litigation.
