Last week, the Department of Justice decided to terminate the process of prosecuting President Trump's first National Security Advisor, 3-Star General Michael Thomas Flynn.

Newly discovered documents proved that the FBI agents who questioned Flynn didn't think he was lying, but top Officials of the FBI chose to prosecute him for lying anyway.

Furthermore, testimony transcripts declassified last week, indicated that General Flynn did not do anything that was a violation of U.S. law.

In short, he was setup and railroaded (using threats against Flynn's family), by top law enforcement officials who were still beholden to former President Barack Obama, in the first weeks of the new Trump Administration.

The JUDGE presiding over the Michael Flynn court case since Flynn's 2017 indictment, is EMMET SULLIVAN.

In December 2018, Sullivan proceeded to berate and humiliate the general in open court, by saying: "You Sold Your Country Out!"
Judge Implies Flynn is a Traitor: www.cnbc.com...


Judge Sullivan was supposed to sentence General Flynn to prison this week. But last week (5/7/2020), the U.S. Department of Justice decided to drop the case...to stop prosecuting, when the evidence proving Flynn was framed by the FBI, was discovered.

You'd think Judge Emmet Sullivan would be as Angry at the FBI for lying to him, as he was at Michael Flynn for supposedly, "selling out his country"?

NOPE!... Instead, Sullivan went silent...and stayed that way until today (5/12/2020).

Rather than agreeing with the DOJ and dismissing the case against General Michael Flynn, Judge Sullivan has decided put the case on "hold", and solicit input from the public.

A federal judge said late Tuesday that he would allow third parties to weigh in on Michael Flynn’s case, an unusual move delaying the court’s response to the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the criminal charges against the former national security adviser.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan issued a fairly lengthy order saying “at the appropriate time” he will set a schedule for interested parties — known as amicus curiae — to comment on the case.

The move will allow critics and supporters of dropping the criminal charges against Flynn to offer their opinions.

An amicus brief is usually submitted when a third party could be affected by the court’s decision, or has unique information not previously presented in the case.

It is very rare for a judge to request such motions in a criminal case.

Judge Sullivan’s brief also quoted Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who oversaw the criminal cases against other members of the Trump campaign, including Roger Stone and Paul Manafort.

“As Judge Amy Berman Jackson has observed ‘while there may be individuals with an interest in this matter, a criminal proceeding is not a free for all,’” he wrote.

- Is Judge Emmet Sullivan buying time because he is embarrassed to admit that he bought the DOJ/FBI lies, hook-line-and-sinker?

- Or, is he buying time in the hopes of a "miracle" development, which will allow him to carry out his original goal of putting General Flynn in prison...or at least keeping him labeled as a "Felon", so the Trump Administration cannot re-appoint him to a top position?

- Or, could it be as several conservative pundits are speculating tonight...That Judge Sullivan put the case "on ice", in an attempt to force President Trump to PARDON General Flynn? This would give House Democrats one more reason (in addition to Covid-19 response), to launch yet another impeachment inquiry. And also ammunition to use against President Trump, as Democrats campaign before this November's Presidential election.

As someone who is married to a woman who was once a Federally-recognized Judge...

I'll just say it.

Judges have a hard time admitting they they were wrong.

EVER.

THAT out of the way, it seems this particular Judge is just playing politics.

According to the wife.

Being lied to by the FBI doesn't make Sullivan "wrong", any more than the FISA court justices were "wrong" in approving the FISA spy applications. They were all LIED TO by Obama's FBI.

It does make him wrong though.

He had an error in judgement when he trusted the prosecutors.

No Judge should EVER trust a lawyer.

ETA... nobody should ever trust a lawyer.

That chronological time-line of Judge Sullivan's history, brings significant clarity and perspective. Thank-you for the important contribution to this thread!

Don't judges have a law degree?

He has to think about his own personal life. I'm sure many of his family, friends and associates are black and are not the biggest Trump supporters. They also probably struggle with separating justice and political retribution.

Likely goes to the circuit court and finally gets tossed out for good. This judge at first was all over Flynn and as the OP said really made a fool of himself by not even knowing the details of the case. Looks like he's trying to find a way out gracefully because he screwed it up from the start.

Not necessarily.

I think the judge is trying to force a pardon. The legal reasoning is a pardon would stop Flynn from filing lawsuits. If the case is dismissed with prejudice Flynn has legal recourse. He can sue individuals involved in his case. He can sue the prosecutors individually for prosecutorial misconduct. He can sue the individual FBI agents for obstruction of justice. He can sue Strzok to reveal the original unedited 302. Which has mysteriously gone missing. He could possibly sue the Judge for defamation for calling Flynn a traitor during the trial. Flynn will likely sue the law firm that first represented him for withholding documents from his new representation. Eric Holder is a partner in that law firm. These lawsuits would shine a bright light on his case and reveal even more evidence of malfeasance.

I think you may have actually solved this case.

If what you are saying is true (I have no legal background but it sounds legit) then what he is doing is saving his own ass.

An excellent post that has now made me look into it further.

If Sullivan was a doctor, he'd have his medical license revoked. If you have the cure, use it. Don't let the patient suffer any longer than he/she absolutely has to.

You're a strategy-minded genius! So we'll go with Option #3 from the Original Post. Judge Emmet is trying to force Trump to Pardon Flynn....for many reasons above and beyond what Option #3 described.

Thank-you Meniscus!

"An old U.S. Supreme Court case may hold the answer. “[A] pardon . . . carries an imputation of guilt; [an] acceptance a confession of it.” Those words from the high court in Burdick v. United States (1915) still carry weight. A pardon would have resulted in Flynn admitting in both a plea and in a pardon that he he lied."

Understood. Pardon is definitely off the table (I hope!). The anger at just Sullivan is building...

"Judge Sullivan, who denied leave to file amicus briefs when he knew third parties would have spoken favorably of Flynn, now solicits briefs critical of Flynn," independent journalist Michael Cernovich wrote on Twitter Tuesday evening. "This is a violation of the judicial oath and applicable ethical rules. We will be filing a complaint against Sullivan. ... [He] is acting as a politician, not a judge."

The only way to sue a prosecutor for malicious prosecution is to have the case dismissed. Otherwise the prosecutors enjoy prosecutorial immunity.

Another very real possibility is that the judge is being blackmailed... Just like Chief Justice Roberts was blackmailed.... Spied on by the same dirty critters who spied on Flynn and Trump and Team Trump and Heaven only knows who all else.

QUESTION:

If the judge would have signed off, that would be the end of the case, also the end of the discoverys, but many info is not available yet, like the original 302.
Does this delay give the option to the defence to ask for more of this info? Like more ‘discovery’? Or is that option gone?

That would be a positive side to this... more revelations!

So who knows this?

S&F
Well made thread.
In the end...Sullivan has no choice but to close the case.
