Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, United States district judge for the District of Columbia, on Friday issued what is called the “Brady rule," which requires the prosecution to turn over "any exculpatory evidence" to the defendant in a criminal case, meaning Mueller must provide Flynn with all information that is favorable to his defense.
Prosecutors working for Mueller charged Flynn with lying to FBI agents on November 30, 2017. He pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the FBI before federal judge Rudolph Contreras the next day. Contreras was recused from the case less than a week later -- likely because he served on the special court that allowed the FBI to surveil the Trump campaign based on a FISA application that relied heavily on the unverified anti-Trump dossier.
According to Margot Cleveland, a lawyer who writes for The Federalist, the revised version is significant because "it indicates that if the government did not provide Flynn material evidence during plea negotiations, Flynn has grounds to withdraw his plea."
Sidney Powell writes that Sullivan "is the perfect judge to decide General Flynn’s motion."
The judicial hero of my book, Emmet Sullivan held federal prosecutors in contempt for failing to disclose evidence, dismissed the corrupted prosecution of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the Department of Justice.
That independent counsel, Henry Schuelke, issued a scathing report finding systematic, intentional and pervasive misconduct in the Department of (In)Justice. He identified the prosecution’s deliberate concealment of evidence favorable to the defense. That is why Judge Sullivan both issues such Brady orders in each of his cases and encourages every other judge in the country to do the same.
Emmet G. Sullivan is one judge who is ready, willing and able to hold Mr. Mueller accountable to the law and who has the wherewithal to dismiss the case against General Flynn — for egregious government misconduct — if Mueller doesn’t move to dismiss it himself.
Weissmann and Caldwell made Duncan testify at length against Arthur Andersen when they destroyed the company and 85,000 jobs only to be reversed by a unanimous Supreme Court three years later. Turns out, the “crime” they “convinced” Mr. Duncan to plead guilty to was not a crime at all. The court allowed Duncan to withdraw his plea. And, that was not the only Weissmann-induced plea to be withdrawn either. Just ask Christopher Calger.

I'm sorry. I thought it was you. I guess I was wrong. Apologies.

Has everyone forgotten about the mysterious black barge Google was building? They passed it off as a super luxurious showroom.
Did anyone ever really find out what it was?

We also know which judge signed off on the warrants -- Contreras. He recused himself from Flynn's case as a result.

The fact that Q's last two posts were duplicates...5 minutes apart, might suggest Q was either personally under attack...or that Q was having difficulty posting on 8 at the time.
I'm starting to think that "Q" "Q+" and "Q, DELTA" were 3 different people and were communicating on the board. The unsigned posts being a possible 4th person.
Have a great, but very reflective, President’s Day!
