The HillMichael Flynn hires Sidney Powell as new counsel:

Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has hired attorney Sidney Powell as his new counsel, Hill.TV has learned. 

“I’m honored to be representing General Flynn, who i’ve long considered an American hero. The General and his family want to thank everyone across the country for their cards and contributions to his legal defense fund. He is going to continue to cooperate with the government, pursuant to his plea agreement,” Powell told Hill.TV in a phone call. 

Powell is author of the new book, “Licensed to Lie, Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.” The book’s description reads “Licensed to Lie reveals the strong-arm, illegal, and unethical tactics used by headline-grabbing federal prosecutors in their narcissistic pursuit of power to the highest halls of our government” and focuses on the conduct of the DOJ during the Enron investigation in the mid-2000’s. 

Flynn recently fired his attorneys before sentencing.

  1. Most likely, Flynn couldn’t pay his attorneys, although it’s also possible he didn’t think they wee acting in his best interests.

    The new one may be working partially pro bono, and he may give Flynn hope.
