Michael Flynn has been battling a questionable FBI investigation for years. It looked like his case was about to be dropped when things took an odd turn.
Even though the DOJ dropped all charges, the Obama-appointed judge refused to close the case.
A higher court ordered the judge to dismiss, as there was no reason to continue with the charges dropped. But this judge defied the federal court, it what might be a wildly act of rebellion:
Washington, D.C. federal District Judge Emmett Sullivan is refusing to dismiss the criminal case against former national security advisor Michael Flynn, and is now arguing that the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals erred when it ordered him to do so last month in a 2-1 ruling.
It looks like Judge Sullivan is directly disobeying a federal order to dismiss the criminal case against Michael Flynn. It was abnormal for him to continue the case, even after prosecutors no longer wanted to.
But for him to drag it out, when higher judges ordered him to dismiss? This appears unprecedented and open defiance of our criminal justice system.
Critics will be quick to suggest this judge is acting, not out of upholding the law, but on purely political motives. Michael Flynn was a key in the left’s campaign to paint Trump as a Russian puppet.
But their case continues to erode, as more details emerged to suggest Flynn was set up.
In recent months, evidence has even come out to suggest Obama and Biden were a part of the scheme to trap Flynn.
Many have already questioned the political leanings and loyalties of Judge Sullivan. As an Obama appointee, it’s possible that he’s doing this for partisan reasons. Perhaps, there are larger stakes at play.
If this judge refuses to obey a higher court, is he listening to someone else? Who is this judge taking orders from?
- The judge over Flynn’s case refuses to dismiss, even after a higher court ordered him to.
- This comes after the DOJ dropped the charges, saying there was no basis for a case.
- Critics have questioned Sullivan’s motives for extending the trial for no reason.
