Judge Prolonging Michael Flynn’s Court Case Hires Lawyer, As Appeals Court Demands Explanation

The judge is acting as a prosecutor.

The judge prolonging Michael Flynn’s court case after the Department of Justice announced its intentions to drop the process crime charges against the retired Army general has hired a high-powered D.C. lawyer to defend himself against the scrutiny of the appeals court system.

Judge Emmet Sullivan hired former Brett Kavanaugh attorney Beth Wilkinson on Saturday. Some legal scholars are questioning the need for a federal judge to hire a lawyer to navigate the federal judiciary, especially for a court case in which the Justice Department has already dropped its initiative to prosecute Flynn for lying to the FBI. The case against Flynn fell apart when misconduct on the part of the FBI agents investigating him was exposed, revealing that the agency was seeking to set him up from the beginning.

Yet Sullivan refused to end the court proceedings involving Flynn after prosecutors withdrew their case. The Democrat-aligned federal judge has weighed holding Flynn in contempt of court for changing his initial guilty plea, and now is taking the unprecedented step of essentially assuming the role of the prosecution. Sullivan has appointed a third-party lawyer to make arguments against the federal government’s decision to drop charges.

Flynn lawyer Sidney Powell has filed a writ of mandamus to stop Sullivan’s prolonged, extrajudicial prosecution of the former White House National Security Advisor. A federal appeals court demanded that Sullivan answer for his extremely unusual and arguably unprecedented judicial actions, which essentially serve as usurping the role of prosecution for the judge himself.

Perhaps sensing that he may be stripped from the case for his judicial usurpation, Sullivan has sought legal representation of his own, perhaps aggressively seeking to punish Flynn to the extent that he’s legally able. In any case, the Justice Department’s dismissal of charges against Flynn represent nothing less than full exoneration, regardless of the Democrat proclivities of a federal judge who has proved even more obstinate in pursuing a weak case against the former Trump administration official than the legitimate prosecutors.

Third Witness Claims Bill Clinton Visited Jeffrey Epstein’s Infamous “Pedophile Island”

Doug Band is a former Clinton White House aide.

A longtime Bill Clinton aide has revealed the 42nd President visited Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “pedophile island” of Little St. James in the Virgin Islands, becoming the third witness to claim he had traveled to the island.

Doug Band started as an aide in the Clinton White House in 1995, going on to serve as a post-presidency advisor to Bill Clinton until 2012. He indicated to Vanity Fair in a story released Wednesday that Clinton had visited Little St. James in January 2003, noting he declined to travel with the former President on the trip. Band eventually ended his relationship with the Clintons, citing connections to Epstein as a cause. “I don’t want anything to do with that world,” stated the former political operative to Vanity Fair.

Band goes on to speak of a relationship between charged Epstein “madame” Ghislane Maxwell and the Clintons, revealing that Chelsea Clinton invited Maxwell to her wedding in New York in 2010. Epstein had been convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution in 2008.

Two other witnesses formerly associated with Epstein himself claim to have seen Bill Clinton personally on the island. These incude Virginia Giuffre, a woman who was trafficked and abused by Epstein as a minor, and Steve Scully, who worked as Epstein’s handyman for the island.

Bill Clinton has been on that island. I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch,” stated Scully in a May Netflix documentary. Scully would later resign from Epstein’s employment, citing his knowledge of the sex crimes the pedophile billionaire was engaging in on the island. None of the witnesses that claim Clinton visited the island say they’ve seen him engaging in sexual activity.

Clinton has consistently denied that he ever visited the island, where Epstein engaged in prolific sexual abuse of minors and trafficked women. He reportedly provided travel documents to Vanity Fair that didn’t detail a trip to the island around the same timeframe. However, three credible witnesses- two with connections to Epstein and one with connections to Clinton himself- all claim that he did in fact travel to Little St. James.
