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

For changing his guilty plea.

Published

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.

Joe Exotic’s Legal Team Traveling to DC To Request Presidential Pardon

They hope to get the attention of President Trump.

Published

on

The legal team of exotic wildlife connoisseur and Netflix ‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic is planning a tour-style trip to Washington D.C. in order to request a presidential pardon for Exotic from President Trump. Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence at a federal prison in Texas, after being convicted for a murder-for-hire plot against a Florida big cat sanctuary owner. Exotic maintains his innocence, claiming he was set up by nefarious elements within the exotic animal and zoo trade.

The Exotic advocates appear intent on publicizing the larger-than-life story surrounding the Tiger King’s downfall and arrest, documented in the hit Netflix series many quarantined Americans have become enamored with.

Big League Politics published a new letter from the controversial and colorful zookeeper, detailing his continued claims of innocence and his life within the Federal Medical Center at Fort Worth. Eric Love, a close Exotic associate, thanked the Tiger King’s new fans for their support of the now-incarcerated animal lover. Exotic’s lawyers are appealing the Oklahoma native’s murder-for-hire and animal abuse convictions in the federal court system, in addition to seeking an official pardon from the President.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he knew little to nothing about the peculiar Oklahoma zookeeper, having been largely preoccupied with the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic ever since the six-part documentary series covering Exotic’s downfall has come out. Donald Trump Jr. is known to be a fan of the series, and suggested that his father might be willing to commute Exotic’s hefty sentence if made familiar with the big cat lover’s case.
