Flynn Case Dropped By DOJ, Judge Refuses, Allowing Opposition To Proceed
In what is turning out to be a very long list of judicial activism, where they think they have the authority to legislate laws from the bench, decide foreign affairs, now we have a judge who thinks his power is higher than the Justice Department. The judge on the Flynn Case just exposed his activism to the world.
What we have here is a Clinton appointee to the bench, one that thinks his will is greater then the prosecution, has told the Justice Department that he will not go with the dismissal of the Flynn case, instead has said he is going to issue an “amicus curiae,” or “friend of the court” submissions for people opposed to dropping charges against Flynn to come forward and present their case.
Remember, this is the same judge that accused Flynn of treason, then quickly drew back his remark after he saw the outrage generated by such an accusation.
This is the same judge that has had ethics violation charges against him the past, has a history of shutting up evidence that will aid the defense, has decided that his authority as a judge allows the skirting of constitutional rights. I would say that he makes an excellent Democrat ideal of a great judge; activism is more important than the law.
Sullivan’s minute order indicated that a future scheduling order would clarify the parameters of who specifically could submit the amicus briefs, which are submissions by non-parties that claim an interest in the case. Sullivan specifically said he anticipated that “individuals and organizations” will file briefs “for the benefit of the court.”
“Judge Sullivan, who denied leave to file amicus briefs when he knew third parties would have spoken favorably of Flynn, now solicits briefs critical of Flynn,” independent journalist Michael Cernovich wrote on Twitter Tuesday evening. “This is a violation of the judicial oath and applicable ethical rules. We will be filing a complaint against Sullivan. … [He] is acting as a politician, not a judge.”
Sullivan had previously held that “[o]ptions exist for a private citizen to express his views about matters of public interest, but the Court’s docket is not an available option.”
According to FOX news:
Flynn’s legal team indicated in a filing Tuesday that a sealed amicus brief has already been submitted by a group known as the “Watergate Prosecutors.” That group was featured in an October 2019 Washington Post opinion piece, and listed as one of its members Jill Wine-Banks — who previously advanced unsubstantiated collusion theories involving the Trump campaign and Russia.
Wine-Banks was also explicitly named as a member of the group seeking to file an amicus brief in the Flynn case.
“Mueller can prove conspiracy with Russia beyond any doubt,” Wine-Banks previously wrote. She did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
This is the judge who is allowing to file against Flynn in the court, a disgrace to the bench he sits on.
Further, to call Gen. Flynn a traitor is inexcusable, here is a man who worked for the NAACP a far-leftist activist group, was unseated on a prior bench after framing Senator Ted Stevens after learning the prosecution refused to hand over Brady material, yet let the case go forward despite gross violations by the prosecution. I would tell this judge if he wants to see a traitor, look in the mirror, he is a traitor the oath he gave to be an impartial judge.
This has gone on long enough. It is time to free this patriot, Gen. Flynn, from the grave injustice that has been inflicted on him, it is time for President Trump to show this judge who holds the real authority and issue a pardon.
