Exclusive. Steve’s analysis of Bombshell Mueller Flynn Memo. Total Offense Level is 4.



Format.  My comments are in between copy/pasted text from report.  Looks sloppy as hell, but I couldn’t figure out any other way to get the thing to show up.  The comments are explaining, in my words, the previous item(s).  Look to the end for my analysis of the whole thing.  I think you will find stuff here, from my mind, that you won’t find anywhere else.  Until someone steals it.  Offense Level 4, for example.  So, please be kind. Retweet and credit:


Flynn plead guilty.

Read the memo for yourself!  You will be hearing opinions about this 3rd hand.  People’s thoughts of what other people said the media said after they thought about it.  Read the sources, people. 

This is copy/pasted from the report:

Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 46 Filed 12/04/18 Page 1 of 7UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v.MICHAEL T. FLYNN,Defendant.::::::::Crim. No. 17-232 (EGS)Sentencing: December 18, 2018 GOVERNMENT’S MEMORANDUM IN AID OF SENTENCING The United States of America, by and through Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III,respectfully submits this memorandum in aid of sentencing defendant Michael T. Flynn. On December 1, 2017, the defendant pleaded guilty to one count of making materially false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001(a).

Document 46 of this case.  Would like to see the first 45!  U.S. Court.  So, tRUMP could theoretically pardon Flynn, I think.   “Government’s Memo”, not ‘special counsel’ is there a difference?  “memorandum in aid of sentencing defendant” means the judge or somebody will take this under advisement, but is not bound by that, I think.   [I am Not a lawyer.  This is only my opinion.]  Plead guilty dec. 1, 2017.  1 year ago!  How can he plead guilty to ONE count of making false statementS, plural?      (meant to just put 1 thing here, but kept noticing more stuff and it would be a pain to break up that section.  bear with me.)

18 U.S. Code § 1001 – Statements or entries generally  

 imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years

As calculated by the United States Probation Office, the defendant’s applicable Total Offense Level is 4, Criminal History Category I, resulting in an advisory guideline range of 0-6 months.

This is a Critical part.  What does “Total Offense Level is 4” mean? 

Offense Seriousness The sentencing guidelines provide 43 levels of offense seriousness — the more serious the crime, the higher the offense level. Base Offense Level Each type of crime is assigned a base offense level, which is the starting point for determining the seriousness of a particular offense. More serious types of crime have higher base offense levels (for example, a trespass has a base offense level of 4, while kidnapping has a base offense level of 32).


So, quite literally, Treason/lying to the FBI is being considered the same as fucking trespassing in this sentencing recommendation.  

 I want everyone to understand that when they say he was facing 0-6 months, that is misleading, IMO.   They gave him a teeny, tiny thing (don’t know what to call it).   So, the starting point in the conversation is the zero to six months, Not the death penalty, which I think it should be.  However, there could be other charges filed against him.  

Could not quickly find a definition of  “Criminal History Category I”.  I suspect that is the lowest. So, I’m thinking, dig deeper.  Or, what will the Criminal History be on his next charge.  Will this one bump that up? Or, will they not file anymore?

“resulting in an advisory guideline range of 0-6 months.”  Yes, it Results in that when you make the Starting Point so low.

That offense level and guideline range, however, do not account for a downward departure pursuant to Section 5K1.1 of the United States Sentencing Guidelines reflecting the defendant’s substantial assistance to the government,which the government has moved for contemporaneously.

Don’t know exactly what the fuck that means.   I think it’s saying that he was such a great rat that he should get less than the 0-6 months.  I think he is saying the Offense Level 4 is seperate from the cooperation which is Total Bullshit. 

Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.The nature of the offense and the defendant’s history and characteristics are set forth  below. See 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a). In addition, the Addendum to this memorandum describes the    

Why is he repeating ‘substantial assistance’?  A message to the Don and others?  (finally finished the 1st page.)

Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 46 Filed 12/04/18 Page 2 of 7 defendant’s assistance to the government.Because the Addendum includes sensitive information about ongoing investigations, the government is seeking to partially seal the Addendum, and has filed publicly a redacted version of the document that excludes the sensitive information.

“assistance” for the 3rd time.  lol.  “partially seal”.  This is great!   By releasing this partly redacted memo, we, the public, get to see this stuff.  And the doj and prez can’t bury it.  I think Mueller may be brilliant.   By redacting some, it is more for the prez and his unindicted co-conspirators to freak the fuck out about.  And more drama.  And we Know it has been redacted and we, the people, and the press, won’t stop until we do get to see the blacked out parts.  Be patient.  

I.Nature of the Offense: False Statements to the Department of Justice The defendant’s offense is serious. As described in the Statement of Offense, the defendant made multiple false statements, to multiple Department of Justice (“DOJ”) entities, on multiple occasions. See Statement of Offense, United States v. Flynn, No. 17-cr-232 (D.D.C.Dec. 1, 2017) (Doc. 4) (“SOF”).

 Again, One Baby charge for many lies to many doj Entities many times.  


So, how many Entities did the 3 star General lie to?  

The first series of false statements occurred during an interview with the FBI on January 24, 2017. At the time of the interview, the FBI had an open investigation into the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including the nature of any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald J. Trump. Days prior to the FBI’s interview of the defendant, the Washington Post had published a story alleging that he had spoken with Russia’s ambassador to the United States on December 29, 2016, the day the United States announced sanctions and other measures against Russia in response to that government’s actions intended to interfere with the 2016 election (collectively, “sanctions”). See David Ignatius, Why did Obama Dawdle on Russia’s hacking?, WASH. POST (Jan. 12, 2017). The Post story queried whether the defendant’s actions violated the Logan Act, which prohibits U.S. citizens from corresponding with a foreign government with the intent to influence the conduct of that foreign government regarding disputes with the United States. See 18 U.S.C. § 953. Subsequent to the publication of the

Wow. just wow.  so much, mind-blowing stuff here.  I’m not going to deep-dive every sentence, but hopefully you will get an idea of how serious this is.

Is it just me, or is this the First official Mueller document where he says, “President of the United States.”???  Hopefully, somebody will tell me the answer in the comments.   This isn’t Individual 1 or something like that.  

Way to go, Washington Post!  That is why scumotus is attacking the messengers and saying they lie.  Just read today that adolf did the same thing.   

This is yuuuuge.  

Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 46 Filed 12/04/18 Page 3 of 7 Post article and prior to the defendant’s FBI interview, members of President-Elect Trump’s transition team publicly stated that they had spoken to the defendant, and that he denied speaking to the Russian ambassador about the sanctions. See, e.g., Face the Nation transcript January 15,2017: Pence, Manchin, Gingrich, CBS NEWS (Jan. 15, 2017).When the FBI interviewed the defendant on January 24 about his interactions with the Russian ambassador, the defendant falsely stated that he did not ask the Russian ambassador to refrain from escalating the situation in response to the sanctions, and falsely disclaimed any memory of his subsequent conversation with the ambassador in which the ambassador stated that Russia had acceded to the defendant’s request. See SOF at ¶ 3. In addition, the defendant made false statements to the FBI about his prior interactions with the Russian government in December 2016 concerning a pending United Nations Security Council resolution. See id. at ¶ 4.The defendant’s false statements to the FBI about (i) his contacts with a Russian government emissary, (ii) the requests he conveyed to the Russian government through that emissary, and(iii) Russia’s response to those requests, were material to the FBI’s investigation into the nature of any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign.

Names!  He names names!   Trump, Pence, Manchin, Gingrich. 

“The Russian Ambassador” was the Number #1 Russian SPY in the U.S.  This has been well documented.   This was the guy he invited into the oval office along with russian state tv and committed treason by giving them Ultra Classified Israeli intelligence.  And, he gave them sources!   Oh wait.  The president can  divulge classified info to anybody, anytime.

And that was just the First series of false statements.  It was all about Russia.

I think this section speaks for itself, so i’m not gonna analyze it more.  for now.

The defendant made a second series of false statements to the DOJ concerning his contacts with the Republic of Turkey. Specifically, on March 7, 2017, the defendant made materially false statements in multiple documents that he filed pursuant to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (“FARA”) pertaining to a project he and his company had performed for the principal benefit of the Republic of Turkey (“Turkey project”). Id. at ¶ 5. In those filings, the defendant disclosed that he and his company began work on the Turkey project in August 2016,

This is the Second series of false statements.  Turkey.  Lied a bunch of times, on paper.  Aug 2016.  trump was the republiCON nominee then.

Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 46 Filed 12/04/18 Page 4 of 7 soon after a coup d’état was attempted in Turkey. Ultimately, the project lasted approximately three months and the defendant and his company were paid $530,000 for their work.The FARA filings omitted the material fact that officials from the Republic of Turkey provided supervision and direction over the Turkey project. See id. At the time, the defendant was a national security advisor and surrogate for the Trump campaign who opined publicly on foreign policy and national security issues. The defendant’s business relationship with the Republic of Turkey was thus exactly the type of information FARA was designed to ensure was within the public sphere. The purpose of FARA is to ensure the United States government and the United States people are informed of the identity of foreign entities—in this case a foreign government—behind information or propaganda being used to influence public opinion, policy,and laws.On election day in 2016, the defendant published an op-ed for the Turkey project that called for the removal of a cleric residing in the United States whom the President of Turkey blamed for the failed coup in that country. See Michael T. Flynn, Our ally Turkey is in crisis and needs our support, THE HILL (Nov. 8, 2016). The cleric’s responsibility for the coup attempt wasa subject of great debate, and the defendant’s op-ed about the cleric’s role was valuable to the Republic of Turkey’s efforts to shape public opinion. The defendant falsely represented in his FARA filings that the op-ed was written at his own initiative, as opposed to for the Turkey project and the Republic of Turkey, and thus again deprived the public of the very transparency FARA was designed to ensure. See SOF at ¶ 5. The defendant’s false statements impeded the ability of the public to learn about the Republic of Turkey’s efforts to influence public opinion

This is in some ways more shocking than the previous stuff.    “At the time, the defendant was a national security advisor and surrogate for the Trump campaign who opined publicly on foreign policy and national security issues.”  And this was, “after a coup d’état was attempted in Turkey”.   I don’t know if anyone remembers, but Turkey executed a bunch of people after the failed coup.  Does Flynn have gallons of blood on his hands? 

Again, jaw-dropping stuff, but it speaks for itself.  

Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 46 Filed 12/04/18 Page 5 of 7 about the failed coup, including its efforts to effectuate the removal of a person legally residing in the United States.

Somebody, like Kasogi?  Somebody a horrible foreign government wanted to reach out and bone saw, but couldn’t get to in the U.S.?  This is disgusting.  Again, a 3 fucking star U.S. General.  

II.History and Characteristics of the Defendant The defendant’s history and characteristics present mitigating and aggravating circumstances.

Why mitigating?  [make less severe, serious, or painful.]  He should be held only to a much Higher Standard!   It should be aggravating only.

As detailed in the Presentence Investigation Report (“PSR”), the defendant’s military and public service are exemplary. He served in the military for over 33 years, including five years of combat duty, led the Defense Intelligence Agency, and retired as a 3-star Lieutenant General. See PSR (Doc. 44) at ¶¶ 70-71.

Exemplary?  [serving as a desirable model; representing the best of its kind.]  Obama Warned Trump not to hire this guy.  

Retirement from the military
On April 30, 2014, Flynn announced his retirement effective later that year, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position. He was reportedly effectively forced out of the DIA after clashing with superiors over his allegedly chaotic management style and vision for the agency.[34][35][36][37] In a private e-mail that was leaked online, Colin Powell said that he had heard in the DIA (apparently from later DIA director Vincent R. Stewart) that Flynn was fired because he was “abusive with staff, didn’t listen, worked against policy, bad management, etc.”[36]According to The New York Times, Flynn exhibited a loose relationship with the truth, leading his subordinates to refer to Flynn’s repeated dubious assertions as “Flynn facts”.[38]


So, he got his ass Fired for being a lying, stupid, asshole.  shoulda run for president.  

The defendant’s record of military and public service distinguish him from every other person who has been charged as part the SCO’s investigation.However, senior government leaders should be held to the highest standards.

Burn!  “senior government leaders should be held to the highest standards”  And, since when??

Interesting…    He is the only military person charged by Mueller.  

The defendant’s extensive government service should have made him particularly aware of the harm caused by providing false information to the government, as well as the rules governing work performed on behalf of a foreign government.


just had to share how it looked when copy/paste scrunched it.   sextensive gov service.  hahaha
The defendant deserves credit for accepting responsibility in a timely fashion and substantially assisting the government. As described in the Addendum, shortly after the SCO reached out to the defendant to seek his cooperation, the defendant accepted responsibility for his unlawful conduct and began cooperating with the government.

“Deserves credit for sentencing.”  After Mueller told him he was fucked, he’s like, ‘ok, I’ll be a rat.”  He deserves credit for rolling over so fast.  facepalm.  He Deserves and earned much more than a slap on the wrist.

“Accepted responsibility”  How do you figure?  He knew he’d walk if he spilled the beans.  

“cooperating with the government”  another burn.

Mueller concludes that Flynn should get a ‘get out of jail‘ card.  

The rest is just blah, blah, blah, legal shit.  I’m just posting this last crap for posterity.  And it case it gets wiped from the internet.

So, that is the 7 page flynn sentencing memo.  

Then there is Document 46-1.  Why not call it 47?  

46-1 is the one with all the black redacted lines.  sexy.


Addendum to the memo.  Nice government speak.  

Maybe, I’ll analyse that one tomorrow, or in 3ish days.  I’m beat after spending so much time with the first one.   This took me 2.5 hours.   Also, I slept on the report, like I tweeted I would, so I could think about it first.   We need to slow the fuck down.  24 hours news cycle means lots of junk gets said right away, and it might not be corrected the next day, or ever.   But, if I was on tv, I would say: 

“Treason and Trespass are not synonyms!”

Conclusion.  Was gonna go big here, but I think that if you look at some of my comments, especially the ones in bold, you’ll pretty much get enough to understand what a bombshell this is.  I might write up a more formal conclusion, later, and post it as another blog entry. 

Thank-you for reading.  Now tell your friends.  And Vote!   

{damnit.  was just reviewing as a guest and all the text boxes got shrunk to 1 line with a scroll.  sorry bout that.  if it can be fixed, i will. also, screwed up the display pic for how it shows on twitter.  oh well, room for improvement! }{was reading some articles about this.  i think mine sucks.  needs a lot of work.  hopefully you’ll get Something out of mine, though. }
