Michael Flynn’s Legal Team Files Brief to Remove Judge Prolonging Trial After Charges Dropped

Somehow, the case is still going.

The legal team for retired three-star Army general and former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is filing a brief to remove Judge Emmet Sullivan from Flynn’s process crimes trial. Sullivan is prolonging the trial after the Department of Justice dropped charges of lying to the FBI against Flynn, citing new revelations of misconduct exposing the investigation into the Trump administration official as little more than a fishing operation.

Judge Sullivan has refused to order a cessation to Flynn’s federal trial, a highly unusual move by a judge in a situation where the Department of Justice has withdrawn its prosecution of the decorated veteran. The judge has essentially taken on the role of prosecutor, prolonging the trial to allow partisan liberal legal groups to file complaints regarding the outcome of the trial.

Sullivan is also considering holding Flynn in contempt of court for having changed his original guilty plea to not guilty after more than a year of court proceedings.

As a result, Flynn lawyer Sidney Powell has filed an emergency writ of mandamus seeking Judge Sullivan’s replacement and the immediate termination of court proceedings that are typically associated with the dismissal of criminal charges by the prosecution. Powell is pointing to questionable conduct on the part of the Democratic-affiliated federal judge, including a bizarre and outlandish description of Flynn as having “sold out his country” for forgetting the contents of his negotiations with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak during a fishing interview with the FBI.

Powell cites precedent establishing that “the government has near-absolute power under [the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure] to extinguish a case that it has brought,” reminding the court system that powers of the prosecution rest with the appropriate federal authorities, not judges.

It’s time for the malicious witch hunt prosecution of a decorated American patriot to come to an end.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
