Federal Judge Considers Holding Michael Flynn in Contempt of Court as Legal Parting Shot

For changing his guilty plea.

The federal judge tasked with overseeing criminal proceedings against retired three-star general and former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is appointing a retired judge to consider possible criminal contempt charges, in what could be called a legal parting shot after the Department of Justice dismissed charges citing new evidence of FBI misconduct in the January 2017 investigation of Flynn.

Judge Emmet Sullivan is appointing “John Gleeson (Ret.) as amicus curiae to present arguments in opposition to the government’s Motion to Dismiss,” the judge wrote.  “[I]t is further ORDERED that amicus curiae shall address whether the Court should issue an Order to Show Cause why Mr. Flynn should not be held in criminal contempt for perjury.

Stringent liberal legal advocacy groups have already taken the rare and arguably unprecedented step of filing amicus curiae petitions with the court in support of continued prosecution of Flynn for process crimes. It’s traditionally the imperative of the federal government to fill the role of the prosecution in criminal proceedings, and it’s doubtless that the group of ‘Watergate Prosecutors’ are fuming at the mouth at the prospect of Flynn’s vindication in light of severe FBI misconduct.

Sullivan’s reference to a possible contempt of court ruling seems to involve Flynn’s change of his guilty plea in February, which be described as the result of faulty counsel from his original lawyers in the case who insisted he plead as such. The judge apparently views it as a waste of the court’s time to seek to change a plea so late in criminal proceedings, even though new evidence quickly suggested Flynn’s argument for his innocence was more than plentiful.

It’s ultimately doubtful that a federal judge can continue the prosecution of a defendant without a federal prosecutor, but the delay in the end of the proceedings will give third-party liberal lawyers a chance to put in some final parting shots.

BIG: Saint Louis Police Detective REFUSED TO SIGN Soros Funded Prosecutor’s Probable Cause Document Against McCloskeys

This could doom the bunk charges.

Published

on

New developments in the criminal case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey by Soros-funded Saint Louis Prosecutor Kim Gardner reveals that a lead police detective refused to sign a probable cause statement drafted by Gardner’s office. The probable cause statement appears filled with falsehoods and lies, and claims that the trespassing rioters that broke into the private community of the McCloskeys were “peaceful.”

The ‘signature’ element of the probable cause statements against both McCloskeys has been conspicuously left blank, with Curtis Burgdorf leaving off his signature.

KDSK St. Louis reported Tuesday that Gardner’s Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley emailed these documents to Sergeant Curtis Burgdorf the day before a gun confiscation search warrant was served on the McCloskeys, telling the cop that he needed to sign them “now.” Gardner’s office merely went ahead with the gun confiscation, later criminally charging the couple, after falsely trying to put words in the mouth of the St. Louis Police Department.

KDSK is also reporting that Burgdorf had documented numerous threats directed towards the McCloskeys by the Black Lives Matter trespassing rioters, including waving loaded pistol magazines at the couple and warning that they would be “coming back” to the residence.

Gardner’s subordinate Hinckley would go on to leave Sergeant Burgdorf an angry voicemail for refusing to sign off on fraudulent documents alleging crimes against the McCloskeys.

Curtis, you need to call me back. I wrote a long email to you trying to ask a bunch of questions about whatever it is you said some was (expletive). Now we need to straighten this out because I’m about done with this crap. Call me back.”

Merely weeks after charges were filed, the case against the McCloskeys is already filled with massive improprieties and downright corruption, including a revelation that a prosecutor with Gardner’s office had ordered forensics experts to reassemble Patricia McCloskey’s pistol from its original state as a non-functional courtroom prop to a functional firearm.

It’s well past time for these bunk charges to be summarily dismissed as political prosecution, and for Gardner to be investigated for her resolute willingness to prosecute her political enemies and go easy on left-wing criminals.
