[Ed. – Eastern District of Missouri. Hard to make a lot out of that, other than that it’s definitely “outside” of the District of Columbia jurisdiction. It doesn’t sound like a comprehensive reinvestigation. But Jensen may call for some reinvestigation, depending on what he finds. That would mean another delay. Frankly, the charges should be dropped, and if DOJ wants to bring them again, they can do so. Flynn has been hamstrung in his personal life long enough. This isn’t justice.]
The Department of Justice has tapped an outside prosecutor to review the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Fox News has learned.
A senior Justice Department official told Fox News on Friday that Jeff Jensen, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, has been assigned to Flynn’s case.
The probe into Flynn’s case … comes as the timeline for the former national security adviser’s sentencing remains at a standstill.
Last month, Flynn and his attorney Sidney Powell moved to withdraw his guilty plea for making false statements to the FBI about his communications and conversations with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak—which stemmed from Mueller’s probe as well.
