FINALLY: General Michael Flynn’s Case is Dismissed as Crooked Judge Whines about Trump’s Pardon
General Michael Flynn’s case has finally been dismissed following a pardon from President Donald Trump, despite the best efforts of crooked federal Judge Emmet Sullivan.
Sullivan did all he could to extend Flynn’s case as long as possible, even after it was publicly revealed that the FBI’s investigation was highly improper. He was eventually forced to dismiss the case.
Even though he was forced to dismiss the case, Sullivan still ran his mouth about the case afterward and attempted to drag Flynn’s name through the mud.
“The history of the Constitution, its structure, and the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the pardon power make clear that President Trump’s decision to pardon Mr. Flynn is a political decision, not a legal one. Because the law recognizes the President’s political power to pardon, the appropriate course is to dismiss this case as moot,” Sullivan wrote.
He also implied that Flynn was guilty saying that “a pardon does not necessarily render ‘innocent’ a defendant of any alleged violation of the law.”
“Indeed, the Supreme Court has recognized that the acceptance of a pardon implies a ‘confession’ of guilt,” Sullivan added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Sullivan dropped any pretense of judicial impartiality to extend the deep state’s witch hunt against Flynn as long as possible:
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.
Sullivan’s reprehensible behavior demonstrates how a complicit judiciary has allowed the deep state to run rampant, destroy lives and systemic violate the law.
