Developments in the Flynn Intel Group (FIG) FARA case:

FIG lawyer stated "it was not necessary to register under FARA and that FIG should register under the Lobbying Disclosure Act instead"

DOJ is trying to keep this advice out of trial.
Take note of this section as it pertains to Flynn:

"none of the alleged co-conspirators played any role in this decision" to not register under FARA.
If the advice of counsel is allowed at trial - and it should be - this blows a significant hole in the DOJ's charge that FIG conspired to evade FARA registration.

How is there a conspiracy if they told their lawyer they needed to register under FARA?

Statement from lawyer:

Update.

The Judge has denied the DOJ Motion in Limine to Preclude Defendant from Presenting Evidence or Argument on Advice of Counsel or the Lobbying Disclosure Act.

Big win for the defense.
