Former Judge Wants to Keep Flynn Case Alive

Former Judge Wants to Keep Flynn Case Alive

( – In early May, the Department of Justice announced they were going to drop the case against Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor. Judge Emmet Sullivan who was overseeing the case had other plans and hand-picked a retired judge to argue against the motion. The move was highly unusual. Now John Gleeson, the court-appointed justice, is speaking about the case.

Gleeson submitted an 83-page brief and urged the court to not drop the case. He said the DOJ’s decision to free Flynn was filled with “errors of law and fact.” The retired judge accused the department, headed by Attorney General Bill Barr, of “a gross abuse of prosecutorial power.”

Is it really surprising that he found misconduct when he was asked to argue against the DOJ? Wasn’t that the plan all along? For some reason, Judge Sullivan has decided he is both the prosecutor and the justice in the case. The only actions that are unusual are his.
