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.
FBI Lists Journalist James O’Keefe Erroneously as ‘Convicted Felon’ to Prevent Him From Buying a Weapon
This is the problem with a federal background checking registry.
Project Veritas founder and conservative investigative reporter James O’Keefe has reported that he was recently denied a firearm because the FBI listed him as a “convicted felon” on their background registry.
O’Keefe posted a video on social media of himself at a New York gun store attempting to buy a shotgun before the federal background check under the NICS system rejected his request.
“I hope it’s not retaliating against me because of our journalism,” O’Keefe told the shopkeeper, who recognized O’Keefe from his work exposing liberal corruption and shook his hand.

Big League Politics has reported on how efforts to strengthen federal background checks are a liberal trojan horse to enact gun control and keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens:
Another controversial provision of the omnibus spending bill is funding for a proposal known as “Fix-NICS.” Instead of attempting to pass it on its own, which has failed on numerous occasions, it appears that Republicans in congress have plugged the bill, which has support from a number of high-profile Democrats, including Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) into the massive spending bill.
SEC. 601. of the omnibus spending bill is titled the “FIX NICS ACT,” and is the same bill that anti-gun Republicans and Democrats have failed to pass in the past.
Fix-NICS provides massive funding to states to encourage them to input more people into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to bar them from firearm ownership.
The NICS system has already been massively abused, disproportionately targeting veterans. Over 257,000 veterans have already been barred from firearm ownership without any due process, and this funding only gives them the ammo they need to throw even more veterans into the NICS database.
The deep state would certainly be incentivized to punish O’Keefe for his political advocacy. O’Keefe has been a leader in exposing their plot against President Donald Trump, including how the Russia-gate witch hunt was a total farce from the beginning.
O’Keefe caught CNN supervising producer John Bonifield on camera in 2017 admitting that there was no evidence of Trump ever engaging in Russian collusion or doing anything improper with regards to Russia.
“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield said on the hidden camera video. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
“Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN (Jeff Zucker) said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia,” he continued.
“I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime,” Bonifield added. “I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”
The case of O’Keefe’s rejection shows why federal gun control must always be opposed. No matter how well-intentioned the measures may be, they will always be used by liberal bureaucrats to deprive their enemies of rights.
