Russiage: DOJ Has A Filing Problem

So now DOJ has found a new batch of hand written notes from some of the principal players in spygate, Peter Strzok, Dana Boente and Tash Guahar. No doubt these will be seized upon by Judge Sullivan and his band of merry pranksters in "the resistance" as an excuse to delay the exoneration of Gen. Flynn. One wonders if someone in DOJ came up with the idea.
Jerry Dunleavy at WaEx, Justice Department unearths more notes from Peter Strzok and others in Flynn case
The Justice Department announced that it has unearthed further information related to the FBI’s investigation of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, including more notes taken by fired special agent Peter Strzok.

Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in the nation’s capital, said Tuesday that the documents handed over to Flynn’s defense team included handwritten notes from Strzok taken at a meeting on Jan. 25, 2017; notes from former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar at the same meeting; an internal DOJ document dated Jan. 30, 2017; and handwritten notes from then-acting Attorney General Dana Boente which were dated March 30, 2017. The notes remain sealed by the court.
Which court, Sullivan's? Yep.
Attorney General William Barr assigned Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri, to review the Flynn case earlier this year, and the federal prosecutor has found a number of documents that appear to have been concealed from Flynn’s defense team.

Notes from Strzok released in late June show former Vice President Joe Biden raised the Logan Act during an early January 2017 Oval Office meeting about Flynn.

Documents declassified this year indicate that Strzok abruptly stopped the FBI from closing its investigation into Flynn in early January 2017 at the insistence of the FBI’s “seventh floor” after the bureau had uncovered “no derogatory information” on Flynn. Emails showed Strzok, along with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and several others, sought to continue investigating Flynn, even considering the Logan Act.

Notes from the FBI's head of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, show him asking, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
Sundance at CTH follows the trail down the rabbit hole:  Flynn Case Update: DOJ Provides Defense With Handwritten Notes from Tashina Guahar Meeting January 25th – And Dana Boente Notes Which Explain the Reason He Was Retired…
When the special counsel team was stirring the pot for the Trump-Russia collusion hoax, they leaked the Boente notes to their allied resistance member, Rachael Maddow. Those notes form the basis/justification for Boente signing the second renewal of the FISA warrant against Carter Page (April 2017). James Comey called Dana Boente because he needed the FISA extended and could not call Jeff Sessions.

Comey enlisted Boente into the operation against President Trump. Ultimately these notes form the basis for why the DOJ demanded Boente leave his position in May. This is why Boente was removed {Go Deep}.
Via Wombat's In The Mailbox: 07.07.20 (Afternoon Edition), Andrew West and Jeff Dunetz at The Lid: Michael Flynn’s Legal Teams Still Making Waves For The Deep State
General Michael Flynn will likely go down in history as one of the first men to go up against the Deep State and win. And Flynn’s legal team is still leading the charge against them.

The former national security adviser was nabbed early in the Robert Mueller-led RussiaGate probe on charges of lying to the FBI.  Over the next several years, Flynn and his legal team attempted to prove his innocence against several crooked cops within the FBI and against a judge who seemed hellbent on putting the highly decorated military man behind bars.

It was only after a series of handwritten notes from the FBI were declassified that Flynn’s charges were dropped, as these notes indicated clearly that The Bureau had openly considered tricking Flynn into lying to them.  This would allow them to hold Flynn hostage, essentially.

Looking a gift horse in the mouth, Sundance wonders Why Did The DOJ Declassify and Release the FISA Application on July 21, 2018?….
Then, amid all of that stonewalling, blocking, redacting of documents, failure to unredact, and refusal to declassify…. suddenly, all of a sudden, presto, here’s the most top secret classified document release ever.

To fulfill a FOIA request by Judicial Watch and the New York Times.

A FOIA request?

Maybe you can follow his logic, I can't.
The real motive for releasing the FISA application, under the auspices of granting a FOIA request, was because the resistance already knew the New York Times had obtained it illegally.

In fact The New York Times had the FISA application since March 17, 2017, when SSCI Security Director James Wolfe, operating under instructions from SSCI resistance coordinator, Mark Warner, took pictures of each page of the FISA application and sent them to journalist Ali Watkins at Buzzfeed.

Ms. Watkins then shared the FISA with fellow resistance allies at the Washington Post and New York Times. To cover her tracks Ms. Watkins did not immediately write about the FISA application, and I suspect the editors at Buzzfeed may not have known.

In exchange for her pre-planned role, The New York Times then hired Watkins; and, under the legal tutelage of the NYT, Watkins based her reporting on the Trump-Russia narrative from there.

However, in March 2017 what Watkins, Wolfe, media and Mark Warner did not immediately know, was that the FBI was conducting a leak investigation; a genuine leak investigation, and the SSCI was suspected.

The FISA application picked up by James Wolfe and delivered to the SSCI contained a leak tracer, a trap. When the tracer showed up in media reports, the FBI knew where it leaked from – the SSCI.
WaEx, Roger Stone asks appeals court to delay start of prison sentence until September
"This will address the defendant's stated medical concerns during the current increase of reported cases in Florida, and Broward County in particular, and it will respect and protect the health of other inmates who share defendant's anxiety over the potential introduction and spread of the virus at this now-unaffected facility," the judge said last month.

The latest motion from Stone's lawyers argued that he "is at considerable risk from serious health consequences, including death, if his surrender date is not extended." It added that the judge “failed to give adequate deference to the government’s uniform policy not to oppose surrender date extension motions due to the pandemic, and failed to consider authority from around the country on this issue under similar circumstances.”
Convicted of resisting "the resistance."
