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.
Victim of Denver Shooting Identified as Veteran, Hatmaker Lee Keltner
A great American by all accounts.
The victim of a heinous shooting in downtown Denver on Saturday has been identified as a small businessman and hatmaker named Lee Keltner. Keltner was shot at point blank in the head by a leftist ideologue who was supposedly acting as a “private security” guard for a NBC affiliate reporter, without being properly licensed to do so or to carry a weapon in Colorado.
Keltner speaks of his craft in a video that emerged on Sunday after his death, briefly describing his service in the US military in one point. He considered his business a means to keep the heritage of the American west alive.

Keltner had been present at Denver’s Civic Center for a Patriot Prayer event that was picketed by a contingent of leftists who identified themselves as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA.

Keltner was involved in a verbal altercation with a Black Lives Matter protestor when Dolloff approached him from his side and shot him in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Antifa supporters have claimed that Keltner utilized pepper spray on the “private security” guard first, but photo imagery reveals that Keltner only deployed pepper spray after Dolloff pointed a gun at him.
The slide of Dolloff’s pistol is already seen cycling as Keltner uses pepper spray- a non-lethal weapon- in self defense. The confrontation between Keltner and a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt hadn’t even been violent, and it’s extremely hard to imagine why Dolloff would’ve assumed he had to shoot Keltner.
Denver police initially identified Dolloff- who wasn’t named to the public until late Saturday night as a “private security guard with no affiliation with Antifa.” In actuality, he is not registered or licensed to act as a private security guard in Colorado, and it’s unclear if he’s even eligible to carry a weapon. A query of Dolloff’s social media accounts reveals he has extreme far leftist views. He’s been booked into the Denver jail system on suspicion of first degree murder.
The life of a great American has been taken by a leftist ideologue who callously opened fire at a peaceful protest.
