Flynn's Attorney: Comey's Lies 'Exceeded Only by His Hubris'

Ex-FBI Director James Comey's "ability to lie is exceeded only by his hubris," Sidney Powell, the attorney representing former national security adviser Michael Flynn, said Thursday in response to Comey's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

"He needs to read his memo from Jan. 6, Sally Yates' testimony, and he might want to read the 302 of his FBI agents and text messages to each other," Powell said on Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria."  

Comey testified that during a Jan. 5, 2017, meeting at the White House, neither President Barack Obama nor Vice President Joe Biden suggested prosecuting Flynn under the Logan Act, which criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments. 

Powell said agents' text messages show that when Comey returned from the White House after the meeting, "there was a flurry of activity within the FBI, a huge amount. They called it a madhouse and a nightmare to try to put together something to create the narrative that they then created to go interview Gen. Flynn, knowing that it was a pretext."

Also, Comey's own memo from Jan. 6 talks about how he executed his plan as it had been planned, including going to President-elect Donald Trump the next day and briefing him on the salacious aspects of the Christopher Steele document, said Powell.

"They broke every rule ever created to conduct any investigation," said Powell. "President Obama said to make sure you put the right people on it. That was clear from the notes which must have been from a conversation with Comey after that meeting."

It was revealed during the hearing that Powell asked Trump not to pardon Flynn. She said Thursday that she believes it more important that the truth about him comes out in the courtroom and that he be publicly exonerated. 

"He is innocent and the only crimes in the case against him were committed by the FBI agents who made up the false statements themselves," said Powell.
