Michael Flynn Judge Just Told the D.C.
Circuit Why He Refused to Immediately
Dismiss Prosecution

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 6/1/2020 5:49:18 PM

A much-anticipated explanation from the federal judge presiding over Michael Flynn’s criminal case was submitted on Monday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.(Snip) Here’s what the 46-page filing said in the opening lines: The unique facts of this case warrant evaluation by the trial judge before any review by this Court. It is unusual for a criminal defendant to claim innocence and move to withdraw his guilty plea after repeatedly swearing under oath that he committed the crime. It is unprecedented for an Acting U.S. Attorney to contradict the solemn representations that career prosecutors made time and again

Never mind that there is no there there…. and that the guilty plea was coerced ...

Yes, add the judge to the investigation into criminal activities and abuse of power against Flynn. There should be punishment for all involved who perpetuated this disgusting miscarriage of justice.

Let's hope the Appeals Court quickly assigns this to another judge and/or directs that the case be dismissed.

Hope Flynn can raise another $6 million to help the judge here litigate all sides some more. He’s already incurred $6 million in legal fees over 4 years. Don’t go dying on us Flynn -everyone is making too much money off of you...

If this were just about anywhere except (1) DC (2) NY and (3) the 9th Circus, the Judges would look at this 46 page report, say Thank you, Judge, and require that he dismiss the case. And then go out for drinks and maybe a round of golf.

Nevermind that all the DOJ had no basis for their interview of Flynn, he wasn't Mirandized during it, Lisa Page and Peter Strozk rewrote the 302 document, the DOJ threatened to charge Flynn's son, but didn't disclose it as part of the plea deal, the DOJ refused to hand over documents that could have exonerated Flynn (in spite of the judge's own Brady order), hid those documents for over two years, and that Flynn's first lawyers had a conflict of interest and leaned on him to plead guilty to save their own hides. Nope - all that matters is that Flynn pleaded guilty twice and it is "unprecedented" - not.

Lawyers. They have twisted the law into something only someone with a 4-year-plus degree can hope to understand. If new evidence can get you a new trial or a verdict overturned, why can't it get a dismissal before a sentencing? Especially when all parties, except the judge, agree it should be dismissed?

Once again Judge Sullivan shoes he doesn't understand what this case is all about. He is still trying to convict LTG Flynn of treason for legally representing Turkey (an ally) after resigning from the Army and before he joined Team Trump.

Sullivan mentioned that he wants "Judge Gleeson ... to address whether initiating a contempt proceeding here would be appropriate". Flynn should be held in contempt because he was framed by a criminal government, bullied, coerced, betrayed by his lawyers, and assaulted by the judge as a treasonous defendant? We are really in crazyland now. It is the prosecution that has treated the court with contempt and Sullivan himself who has cast aside objectivity to persecute Flynn and prolong this criminal conspiracy. No, Sullivan has not yet ruled. In reality, there is no reason to prolong Sullivan's showboating. The only required action is that he dismiss the charges. Why should Flynn be subjected to more delays and costs and appeals? So that Sullivan can have his say? This delay is garbage. Sullivan has the hots for Flynn and it would be interesting to know why? But not now. Finish this.

Judge Sullivan was directed by the DC Court of Appeals to respond to the Writ of Mandamus. Instead the judge hired an outside lawyer (Wilkinson) to perform the work assigned to him. Why is this judge, unable/unwilling to perform his responsibilities, still getting paid? Is the taxpayer footing the bill for Wilkinson to perform the judge's job? The Court of Appeals should reject Wilkinson's work product and cite Sullivan for failing to respond. The Court of Appeals, in the interests of Justice, should then reassign the case to a competent judge for dismissal.

The only issue is whether the judge can deny the unopposed motion. All of the stuff about the guilty pleas and the alleged lies is irrelevant to that issue. This is not a plea bargain where the judge has discretion as to sentencing. It is a separation of powers issue and the prosecution, part of the executive, makes the decision as to whether to prosecute.

And do not forget that LTG Flynn's first "defense" team was under pressure from the Obama DOJ over the firm's own possible wrong doing and induced to counsel LTG Flynn to plead guilty. So, he was represented and advised by corrupt and incompetent counsel who should have withdrawn themselves from the case.

It is also unprecedented for the FBI to coerce false statements out of the suspect, not to mention really unprecedented for the defense attorneys and the prosecutors to cook up a secret side deal that keeps the defendant on the hook and testifying under false assumptions too. Lots of unprecedented behavior judge and all of it in your court and allowed by you. You should be impeached, disbarred and rode out of town on a rail.

Something serious needs to happen. Our justice system CAN NOT let this judge get away with this because if he does then he sets the standard that any judge can do this. This needs to be squashed NOW and this judge needs to be removed from all future responsibilities. He is a hazard to our justice system.

Eleven members of the House of Representatives submitted an excellent 16-page amicus brief focusing on separation of powers, and what Congress has done to define the separation over the years. It points out that all of the cases cited by the so-called Watergate prosecutors’ brief actually contradict their argument. It is a fine piece of constitutional and legal reasoning. I don’t have a link, unfortunately, just a PDF.

Flynn's life must stay destroyed otherwise the deep state will suffer its first loss and open up a tiny crack into indictments of criminal misconduct done by the FBI against Flynn and against the president. That is never going to happen. If you think the deep state has suffered any loss at all, you are not looking at the lack of any consequences visited upon the deep state. They have ONLY been rewarded and promoted by the Marxists and their media for their crimes. Only words and furrowed brows have been the actions of the GOP and DOJ in spite of the Jupiter sized mountain of evidence detailing the deep state crimes and detailing the FBI blackmail crimes against Flynn. Sullivan is waiting for the next election, assuming a Marxist-deep state executive branch which will happily keep Flynn's life destroyed. They'll probably also have free reign to destroy Sydney Powell. There will be nothing but a back and forth until the election. If Trump wins, the back and forth will continue until it gets to the Supremes. How do you think John Roberts will rule?

Issue the writ today and require Sullivan to dismiss the case today. Any further delay is a victory for the bad guys. Their go-to tactic of indefinitely delaying an inevitable reckoning has been critical to their entire campaign of resistance and must be met with swift decisive tactics of our own.

The deep state is doing everything to prevent this case from being dismissed because that will be the beginning of the end for the Obama cabal. This case is the lynchpin and there is no way the DS is going to allow it to be dismissed because the real crime points right back to the FBI and DOJ. Gen. Flynn is going to have to duke it out until the very end. The DS is hoping to keep dragging their feet in any way possible until after the election with the hope that they can defeat the President and bury the investigation.

Having read Sullivan's brief and Fokker, again, this should be a no-brainer for the Court of Appeals. But as we have seen many times, courts don't always follow the law if they disagree with it for political reasons. This is an absolute corruption of the legal process, which is supposed to blind (ha ha). The most recent example is Justice Roberts ruling that local governments can treat churches the same as the Home Depot and liquor stores when imposing emergency rules. He was sending a message to Trump that he didn't get to decide what was essential.

That headline is extremely misleading. J. Sullivan didn't "explain" anything; he took 46 pages to say "I haven't ACTUALLY ruled yet, so get the f off my back." Excuse me, Beth Wilkinson said that. Sullivan apparently couldn't muster even that much argument on his own behalf.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t General Flynn plead guilty under the the duress of threats to prosecute his son for other imagined and trumped-up charges? Wasn’t his primary motivation to avoid the absolute financial destruction of his entire family? Wasn’t this all the result of the FBI’s and DOJ’s illegal acts during the Obama administration’s last weeks?

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Wednesday he opposes using military forces for law enforcement in containing current street protests, tamping down threats from President Donald Trump, who had warned states he was willing to send troops to “dominate” the streets. Less than 48 hours after the president threatened to use the Insurrection Act of 1807 to contain protests if governors were not able to get a handle on unrest, Esper said it should be invoked in the United States “only in the most urgent and dire of situations.” He declared, “We are not in one of those situations now.”

The police-involved death of George Floyd last week in Minneapolis demonstrates an abuse of power and a need for a renewed national conversation about America's criminal justice system, Fox News Radio's Trey Gowdy asserted Tuesday. In Wednesday's episode of "The Trey Gowdy Podcast," the former House Oversight Committee chairman said all Americans should be angered by Floyd's death.(Snip) "It was wrong, even if George Floyd had lived. It was a crime, even if he had lived. It was excessive, even if he had lived. But, he did not. He was killed. And, that is murder. It is the unlawful taking of a life.

As protests for racial justice and against police brutality continue to unfold across the country (and worldwide), many of the events have turned violent, with nighttime burning and looting taking the place of more peaceful daytime rallies. And unsurprisingly, President Trump is only stoking the (literal) fires with his incendiary and not at all fact-based tweets. (Namely, he called protesters “THUGS” in his characteristic all-caps tweet-shout, and dropped a phrase with racist origins that also glorifies violence: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”) But among all the nation’s leaders who, unlike Trump, are actually trying to do some leading

WASHINGTON— Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told lawmakers Wednesday that he would not have approved an FBI surveillance application for a former Trump campaign aide during the Russia investigation had he known at the time about the problems that have since been revealed.Rosenstein’s comments amounted to a striking concession that law enforcement officials made mistakes as they scrutinized ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. But even as he acknowledged the legitimacy of anger from Trump and his allies, he defended his appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe and affirmed his support for the conclusion that Russia interfered but did not criminally conspire

Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer has become a laughingstock for imposing draconian lockdown restrictions on her constituents while her own family violates them. Her husband was caught red-handed demanding special treatment because of his wife’s office in violating her restrictions on boating and use of vacation houses, something she first lied about and then tried to pass off as a joke. But yesterday, she topped herself and uttered a phrase that should live on as her emblem of indifference to the suffering of those whom she oppresses. Like the final generation French aristocrats before the revolution, she causally revealed her cluelessness of the misery of those she oppresses.

Richmond, Va.—Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is expected to announce plans Thursday for the removal of an iconic statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from Richmond’s prominent Monument Avenue, a senior administration official told The Associated Press. The governor will direct the statue to be moved off its massive pedestal and put into storage while his administration seeks input on a new location, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak before the governor’s announcement.(Snip) Also on Wednesday, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney announced plans to remove the other Confederate monuments along Monument Avenue,
