Federal Court to Re-Examine Michael Flynn’s Case After Request From Democrat-Appointed Judge
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is trying to revive the federal case against General Michael Flynn weeks after it was officially dismissed.
According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has decided to revisit the Department of Justice’s decision to drop the case at Sullivan’s behest. Sullivan has been on a crusade against Flynn for months, which Flynn’s attorneys claim is politically motivated. He was appointed to the bench by former President Bill Clinton.
“The district court has hijacked and extended a criminal prosecution for almost three months for its own purposes,” Flynn attorneys Sidney Powell and Jesse Binnall told the court.
“To allow Judge Sullivan to delay and generate litigation against a criminal defendant is unconstitutional,” they added, because the “Executive Branch has exclusive authority and absolute discretion to decide whether to prosecute a case.”
Sullivan has failed in other attempts to keep the case going, which have included appealing to a retired federal judge and retaining a high-profile trial lawyer. He has let his objectivity slip with his aggressive lobbying campaign against Flynn, who was able to narrowly escape the deep state railroading against him.
Big League Politics has reported on how the feds collaborated to set up Gen. Flynn over the course of their phony Russia-gate investigation:
New unsealed FBI notes on the planned interrogation of Michael Flynn suggest a questionable intent to the investigation of the then-White House National Security Advisor and retired general.
The notes, which preceded the January 24th, 2017 interview of Flynn, suggest the investigating FBI agents were more interested in tripping up Flynn in a lie than in genuinely investigating the National Security Advisor’s negotiations with Russia during the White House transition period preceding President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Additional notes on the matter suggest that the FBI agents involved in the case were cautious of White House oversight…
FBI agents question openly if they’re trying to investigate Flynn for negotiating potential sanctions relief with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, or if they’re simply trying to trip him up in a lie for them to charge him with. Flynn was ultimately forced to resign as White House National Security Advisor and charged with lying to the FBI as a result of the January 2017 interview.
Flynn has merely been charged with process crimes. He was never charged with violations of the Logan Act, which restricts civilians from negotiating with foreign governments on behalf of the United States without authorization.
The retired general recently announced he’d seek to change his guilty plea to the charges to not guilty, citing a legal team that shoehorned him into making the plea. If so, Flynn could potentially bring up the questionable FBI game plan going into his interview as an argument for the agency’s impropriety in investigating him.
The deep state is obviously bitter that their plan to destroy Flynn’s life failed. Sullivan should be impeached, or worse, for abusing his power so brazenly.
