This sure didn’t age well, eh Wonkette?

A year ago, Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, almost found himself in the hoosegow after trying to persuade Judge Emmet G. Sullivan that, notwithstanding his guilty plea, it was really the FBI’s fault that he told them all those lies about his conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. A rational human being, when given the opportunity to avoid jail time by cooperating a whole lot more with the FBI, would not try that shit again with His Honor. But Michael Flynn is not a rational human being, and neither is Sidney “Emoji Warcrime” Powell, the batshit lawyer he hired after ditching his competent counsel at DC law firm Covington & Burling.

Before Powell had even entered her appearance as Flynn’s lawyer, she sent a secret manifesto to the Justice Department urging Attorney General Bill Barr to “dismiss the prosecution of General Flynn in the interest of justice — whether it be we ink a joint motion or sua sponte by the Department.” And then, despite Judge Sullivan’s very clear signal that Michael Flynn would not get the benefit of his plea agreement if he refused to take responsibility for his crimes, Powell immediately plastered the docket with accusatory briefs demanding that the FBI turn over every scrap and pixel in the Russia investigation, sure that the Justice Department was hiding the smoking gun which would exonerate her client.

The rest

Pardon me while LMAO
