Sullivan, who's acted so far beyond any resemblance of normal in this, may well face impeachment if continues this charade any further.


Perhaps worse then that, as the judge has just hired a high powered defense attorney.  Which judges often do when totally doing things by the book.

Judge Emmet "I am the law" Sullivan might want to hire another attorney, 'cause the first one didn't do much for him:

"In Appellate Brief, DOJ Unloads On Behavior Of Rogue Judge In Flynn Case

The Department of Justice on Monday unloaded on the antics of the rogue federal judge overseeing the Michael Flynn trial, accusing him of usurping the constitutional authority of the executive branch to make prosecutorial decisions and ignoring both statutory law and federal court precedent requiring him to dismiss the case against Flynn.

In a sign of how important DOJ views the underlying constitutional issues in the case, the formal brief to the appellate court wasn’t just signed by the line attorney managing the government’s case. Instead, it was signed by Noel J. Francisco, the Solicitor General of the United States who is tasked with representing the U.S. government in the most important appellate cases across the country; Brian A. Benczkowski, the Assistant Attorney General and head of DOJ’s entire criminal division; Deputy Solicitors General Jeffrey B. Wall and Eric J. Feigin; assistants to the Solicitor General Frederick Liu and Vivek Suri; Michael R. Sherwin, the acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia; Kenneth C. Kohl, the acting Principal Assistant United States Attorney for D.C.; and Jocelyn S. Ballantine, the line prosecutor handling the Flynn case at trial.

The DOJ attorneys cited precedent after precedent, including Supreme Court decisions, that require Sullivan to dismiss Flynn’s case rather than mounting his own personal prosecution against Flynn.

“The district court plans to subject the Executive’s prosecutorial decision to extensive judicial inquiry, scrutiny, oversight, and involvement,” DOJ wrote. “Under the Supreme Court’s and this Court’s precedents, it is clear and indisputable that the district court has no authority to embark on that course.”
-----------------------------

Sullivan apparently was widely regarded as the dumbest sitting federal judge (a spectacularly high bar) before this act of rebellion.

You know it's bad when the lead prosecutor in the case signs a petition against his own case against a judge forced to hire his own attorney to justify his patently illegal actions.

You would truly have to back in time to before the Civil War to have such open disregard for the law by a high court.  

Apparently a cult member's robes - judicial or otherwise - aren't easily cast away.

And the US Court of Appeals just slapped Sullivan down, ordering him to dismiss the case against Flynn (who it should be noted, only now obtained disgraced FBI Agent Peter "I love treason" Strozk's notes):

"Michael Flynn Wins; D.C. Circuit Orders Case Dismissed

Flynn won his request for a writ of mandamus ordering Judge Emmet Sullivan to grant the DOJ’s motion last month.

The appeals court order states:

    "Upon consideration of the emergency petition for a writ of mandamus, the responses thereto, and the reply, the briefs of amici curiae in support of the parties, and the argument by counsel, it is ORDERED that Flynn’s petition for a writ of mandamus be granted in part; the District Court is directed to grant the government’s Rule 48(a) motion to dismiss; and the District Court’s order appointing an amicus is hereby vacated as moot, in accordance with the opinion of the court filed herein this date."
---------------------------

It's stunning indictment of Sullivan, who hired his own lawyer to defend his actions.  The order also prevents Judge Sullivan from hearing amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs in the case.

Conversely, it's a huge win for General Flynn and his chief defender, President Trump.  Notably, the Obama appointed Judge dissented using utterly ludicrous rational (she essentially said it was beyond the appeals court power to rule on the issue).

This ruling may be the tip of the iceberg as there is as mountain of evidence that Comey, Mueller, Strozk, Page, and the rest of the gang of treasonous criminals committed, well, treason.

Oh?

"Justice Department unearths more notes from Peter Strzok and others in Flynn case

The Justice Department announced that it has unearthed further information related to the FBI’s investigation of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, including more notes taken by fired special agent Peter Strzok.

Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in the nation’s capital, said Tuesday that the documents handed over to Flynn’s defense team included handwritten notes from Strzok taken at a meeting on Jan. 25, 2017; notes from former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar at the same meeting; an internal DOJ document dated Jan. 30, 2017; and handwritten notes from then-acting Attorney General Dana Boente which were dated March 30, 2017.

The notes remain sealed by the court. "
--------------------------------

So to re-cap, the FBI, attorney General, President, and Vice-President are just some of the criminal co-conspirators involved in trying to not only fraudulently convict Flynn, but also disrupt the legal transition of power, something never before attempted in US history.

Yeah clown show!

The Court of Appeals gave Sullivan 2 weeks to order the case dimissed.  That ended yesterday and - you won't believe this - Sullivan did not comply.  This headline sums it up nicely:

"Flynn judge files a ridiculous request with the Court of Appeals"


So Sullivan is telling the Court of Appeals - after waiting 2 weeks - that they were wrong because reasons. 

What a clown.

So while Sullivan continues to thumb his nose at the Appeals court - and the rest of America - a nice recap on just how wildly corrupt Barry O and his clown show revue really were:

" How Michael Flynn Got Caught In The Crossfire Between Two Obama Agencies Looking To Get Trump


Michael Flynn's life was upended because one cadre of elites couldn’t let go of power, and the other had to justify spending $25 million of taxpayer money after realizing its investigation was a sham.

Peter Strzok’s newly released handwritten notes shed more light on the meeting President Barack Obama held in the Oval Office 15 days before Trump’s inauguration. This meeting has become infamous because of Susan Rice’s bizarre decision to email herself an account of it on her last day as Obama’s national security adviser.

Present at the meeting were Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and Rice. Sometime after the meeting, Comey told FBI agent Strzok about it, and now we have Strzok’s notes from that conversation.

Rice’s email says, “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’” These words, stated three times according to Rice, are conspicuously missing from Strzok’s notes of the meeting. Further, Comey’s subsequent decision not to proceed “by the book,” or within the bounds of law and procedure, demonstrate that either Comey didn’t take Obama’s instructions seriously or Obama never gave those instructions in the first place.

According to Strzok’s notes, Obama said, “Make sure you look at things plus have the right people on it.” Obama also asked, “Is there anything I shouldn’t be telling transition team?” Comey replied, “[Sergey] Kislyak calls but appear legit.” Although Comey claimed the calls with the Russian ambassador appeared legitimate, he proceeded to use the Logan Act as pretext for interviewing Flynn.

According to Strzok’s notes, it was Biden who brought up the Logan Act in the Oval Office meeting. It also turns out Biden was one of 16 Obama officials who participated in the mass unmasking of Flynn’s name. The more information that comes out, the more it looks like targeting Flynn was a coordinated group effort with Obama at the helm.

Documents released in May made clear that Yates was far more interested in getting Flynn fired than prosecuting him. The special counsel interview with Yates revealed that the first time she heard about Flynn’s phone call with Kislyak was from Obama. It also states that this is where she first heard that Flynn may have broken the Logan Act, although she claims it was Comey, not Biden, who mentioned it in the meeting.

Yates had two meetings with then-White House counsel Don McGahn about the Flynn-Kislyak call. During her first meeting, Yates used the Logan Act as her excuse for informing the White House that the FBI and DOJ had proof Flynn was misrepresenting his call with Kislyak. McGahn, seemingly not knowing what the Logan Act was, took the charge seriously and questioned whether Flynn was under criminal investigation.

McGahn’s attitude in their second meeting changed. According to Yates, it was clear McGahn had researched the Logan Act. He presumably discovered it wouldn’t be a tenable legal strategy. “The DOJ isn’t going to prosecute the Logan Act,” he scoffed. Yates now had to backtrack. It would make her and her department look ridiculous to defend using the Logan Act.

It is evident that Yates’ DOJ never meant to prosecute Flynn under the Logan Act because it didn’t do so, not while Yates was attorney general nor once she was fired. The DOJ let the matter go once Flynn was fired. In fact, in a DOJ memo, McCord said a Logan Act prosecution seemed like a stretch. Yet it was a supposed violation of this law that served as the FBI’s excuse to interview Flynn.

Despite Yates’ claim, it seems more likely that Comey didn’t want to prosecute Flynn under the Logan Act but instead wanted to use the threat of the Logan Act as a pretext for interviewing him, an interview he likely hoped would either lead to dirt on Donald Trump or catch Flynn in a lie.

The FBI had transcripts of Flynn’s call. Its goal wasn’t to get information from Flynn, but to trap him in a lie so he would be fired or charged. This is the definition of a perjury trap. A handwritten note from FBI counterintelligence head Bill Priestap reads, “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” Priestap was one of many officials nervous about interviewing Flynn outside proper procedures. So much for “by the book.”

If Mueller’s team of aggressive prosecutors had not decided to prosecute Flynn in a futile attempt to save their investigation, the Obama administration’s targeted campaign to sabotage the Trump presidency would have faded away into oblivion. Flynn has had his life upended for the past four years because one cadre of elites couldn’t let go of power, and the other had to justify spending $25 million of taxpayer money after realizing its investigation was a sham."
----------------------------------

And this all from the records not destroyed.  It will be interesting what else we learn if and when anyone is charged, and if they rat out the rest of the very large rat nest.

Flynn's lawyer's blast Sullivan in their response to his delay:

"Judge Sullivan’s stubborn disagreement with the Government’s decision to dismiss the case does not confer the right to contest it himself or through his amicus," Flynn's lawyers, including Sidney Powell, said.

"His actions smack of vindictive animus against General Flynn and judicial overreach that have no place in America’s justice system.

No precedent even suggests a 'hearing' on a substantial government motion to dismiss. Not one.

"The umpire cannot force the teams to play extra innings after the game is over. He, the players, and the spectators need to go home and turn off the floodlights," they write.

The brief also notes previous comments Sullivan has made about the Flynn case.

"Judge Sullivan’s extraordinary actions arise solely from his disagreement with the Government’s decision to dismiss the case against General Flynn," it says.

"Not only did he wrongfully tar General Flynn with a baseless assertion of treason, but he has been vocal that General Flynn should be punished severely. Disagreement over a charging decision provides no basis to deny the government’s motion."
------------------------------------------

Sure sure, there's no precedent for the Judge's actions and clearly he's politically motivated, and the FBI's treatment of Flynn was illegal to start with, Orange Man Bad.

Well, here's another for ya!

"Democrats on DC Circuit Court of Appeals Agree to Full En Banc Hearing of Flynn Case

The entire Federal Appeals Court in Washington said on Thursday that it would take up a case involving Attorney General William P. Barr's decision to drop the prosecution of President Trump's former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, erasing a split decision by a three-judge panel in June ordering an immediate end to the case.

A terse order from the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said that a majority of its members had voted to erase a June 24 panel decision ordering the immediate dismissal of the case against Mr. Flynn, and set oral arguments before the full court for Aug. 11.

A majority of the Court of Appeals' members are Democrats."
---------------------

Obviously trying to stall out a final ruling until after the elections... just like the lockdowns.

So to recap, the court of appeals is continuing a case dismissed by prosecutors for criminal conduct by the investigating body, here the FBI.
