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cessation to Flynn’s federal trial, a highly unusual move by a judge in a situation where the Department of Justice has withdrawn its prosecution of the decorated veteran.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.
IT’S REAL: Four New Jersey Democrats Charged With Election Fraud in Mail-In Ballot Scheme
They’re all Democrats.
Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.
Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.
The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.
Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.
Although they’re rarely enforced, New Jersey laws criminalizing election fraud have strict penalties, and it’s possible that the men could face prison sentences of up to ten years if they’re convicted of the second-degree felonies of which they’re charged.
A state investigation into the recent Paterson city election spurred the criminal charges, with AG Grewal revealing that 20% of the ballots filed in the election were fraudulent.
