Tuesday, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn appeared in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to face sentencing for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The case stems from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe into Russian “collusion” between President Donald J. Trump and the Kremlin, for which there is still no evidence.
Fireworks flew in the courtroom as Judge Emmet Sullivan, appointed by former President William J. Clinton, suggested that Flynn could be charged with treason.
“You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the president!” he said. “Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for! Arguably, you sold your country out!”
But that was not true. Flynn’s conduct as a foreign agent ended in mid-November, 2016 around the time Trump was elected president and far before he was inaugurated. Someone must have alerted Sullivan that he was acting foolishly, because after a brief recess, the Judge apologized for his own hysteria – after the mainstream press had already written headlines linking Flynn to treason. Well done.
“I felt terrible about that,” Sullivan said in his apology. “I’m not suggesting he committed treason.”
Now, according to multiple reports, Flynn has agreed to postpone his sentencing until a later date.
#MikeFlynn sentencing postponed indefinitely with an update on March 13, 2019. Judge Sullivan has more questions about Special Counsel’s and FBI conduct,” said Sara Carter, one of the leading reporters on the “collusion” investigation.

Serious questions have been raised regarding Mueller’s conduct in obtaining Flynn’s guilty plea, and the manner in which he was interrogated before being caught in a lie during the investigation.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment
Cuomo has refused to resign.
A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.
Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.
“Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”
Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.
Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
