Ex-Trump Aide Michael Flynn Tries to Withdraw Guilty Plea

Bracewell’s Stephen L. Braga talked with Bloomberg reporters Edward Pettersson and Andrew M. Harris about Michael Flynns attempt to withdraw his guilty plea to the charge he lied to federal agents.

“The primary difficulty in establishing a substantial claim of innocence for a defendant who has pled guilty is the fact that the defendant has already admitted his guilt under oath in the plea proceeding before the very same judge who is now asked to rule upon the motion to withdraw,” Braga said.

He added that Flynn had admitted his guilt twice and acknowledged he knew what he was doing and was not under pressure when he entered his plea.
