One can’t help but wonder what a non-attorney like Flynn is doing hanging out with the President’s election attorneys so late at night. Perhaps he stopped by to give a morale boost. Or perhaps the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama and former Trump national security advisor is lending his expertise in national security and intelligence to Trump’s legal team as reports come out of votes being routed overseas for processing by a foreign company before being routed back to the States.
Sydney Powell, Flynn’s attorney in his effort to dismiss the long-running bogus federal criminal case against him by the Deep State, is also working to help the Trump campaign in its elections fight.
The trio had plenty to smile about after news broke Wednesday night that the two GOP Wayne County, Michigan members of the Board of Canvassers rescinded their coerced vote from Tuesday to certify the Wayne County vote despite massive irregularities.

President Donald Trump sought the recount Wednesday in Dane and Milwaukee counties after he lost the state by about 20,600 votes to Joe Biden. That’s a margin of about 0.6 percentage points.
The recount is to begin Friday and be finished by Dec. 1, in time for the state to certify the results.

Their inability to reach an agreement on that issue left in place guidance that says those applications must be reviewed — even though that isn’t the case, according to the commission’s staff.
The Democrats said the counties should follow the state’s recount law and not necessarily the recount manual the commission approved.
Thomsen said the state’s manual comes with an asterisk because the commission deadlocked on some elements of it. Knudson didn’t care for how Thomsen characterized their disagreements.
