The attorney for former Trump national security advisor retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Sydney Powell, filed a motion Tuesday in federal court seeking to withdraw his guilty plea in the Mueller probe. Powell alleged the government has broken its agreement with Flynn. Flynn is scheduled for sentencing on January 28. The filing asks for a continuance to February 27 to afford prosecutors time to respond to the motion to withdraw.
Powell tweeted about the filing, saying, “We just filed a Motion to Withdraw the plea of @GenFlynn because the government acted in bad faith, with vindictiveness, and breached the plea agreement pursuant to which he has cooperated fully at great personal expense and “held back nothing” according to #prosecuters until…2.
