Judge Sullivan apologizes for his “treason” comments, noting that he was confused about the dates during which Flynn acted as a foreign agent.
“I felt terrible about that,” he reportedly said. “I’m not suggesting he committed treason,” Sullivan adds, further apologizing for his remarks in the prior session.
Flynn’s conduct as a foreign agent ended in mid-November of 2016, far before Trump took office.
In another example of the thuggery that has become the American “justice system” the presiding Judge in Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s sentencing hearing suggested from the bench that Flynn should be charged with treason.
“You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the president!” said Judge Emmet Sullivan of United States District Court for the District of Columbia, according to Steven Portnoy of CBS Radio.
“Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for! Arguably, you sold your country out!” the Judge reportedly continued.
Meanwhile, there have been questions raised about the circumstances under which Flynn allegedly lied to the FBI – mainly whether he was coerced into it without a lawyer present, under the pretext that he was not under investigation.
“Judge Sullivan expresses concern about issues of government conduct raised in Flynn pleadings,” said Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch. “Though he seems more concerned whether Flynn accepts responsibility vs actual gov misconduct.”

Townhall has reported that Sullivan said he cannot hide his “disgust” or “disdain” with Flynn’s alleged behavior.
Does this sound like an impartial judge to anyone? The political right is steadily losing confidence in high level law enforcement and a judiciary that seem bent on destroying the lives of President Donald J. Trump and those who supported him – and rightfully so.
