Skip to comments.Judge Sullivan must reject Barr’s usurpation of judicial power
Posted on 05/11/2020 3:12:43 PM PDT by where's_the_Outrage?
US District Judge Emmett G. Sullivan unquestionably knows that when a federal defendant pleads guilty but then asks to be relieved of his fate, it is up to the court to decide the merit of his argument no matter who supports it, including a prosecutor who has switched sides.
Sullivan is presiding over the case in which former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty twice to serious federal crimes and is ready for sentencing. The fly in the ointment is a recent request by Attorney General William Barr that basically says: Never mind. Ignore those guilty pleas; Flynn never shouldve been interviewed about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the first place, so his admitted lies to the FBI dont matter. The whole Russia thing was a hoax, according to Barr, that were now helping President Trump erase from history. Anyone studying the facts would have no doubt this was his message.

So, we should put them in the Pro US political prisoner column. Got it.
Prosecutor who switched sides?
What is this Cuba?
Prosecutors are suppose to be apolitical and once evidence shows the investigation done by the FBI was garbage, dropping charges/recommendation is the least that should be done.
Fantastic example of Tribe’s modus operandi.
Note the overlap with Adam Schiff’s.
Put a string of egregious words in your opponent’s mouth then mock him for being stupid or duplicitous.
The GOP should have rejected the Kenyan from Indonesia’s usurpation.
Think of what that would have saved us.
Judge Sullivan should hold the prosecutor in contempt and throw him in the pen
Pleading to a charge that was fabricated under a hoax
Go ahead and try judge but watch what happens next.
No justice no peace. Have had more than enough of these Leftist enemies of mankind.
Was General Flynn read his Miranda Rights when he was “interviewed” by the FBI?
Theres no case. It should be over. If the judge tries to keep it open, I believe DJT will pardon Flynn.
Tribe is all about The Law, not about The Justice System?
It’s the DOJ not the Dept. of Laws.
Laurence Tribe is one of the key leaders in the attempted coup d’etat and a powerful voice among those working to destroy America, her Constitution, the rule of law, and our Federal form of government. The Boston Globe is all on board with all of that. He believes that the American people will continue to believe their lies and support their sedition.
Everything going on surrounding Flynn should be a Learning Moment, Fraud, Corruption, Lies,... All that crap doesn’t matter, all that matters is We Got our Guy!!
This is pretty typical behavior amongst All Police and DA’s as well as Judges.
Think Carefully before rendering a Guilty Vote in a Jury Trial.
The left just won’t stop until the bloodshed begins I guess.
Lawrence Tribe — it he still alive?
At a minimum hes going to set aside the plea. Then it will be up to the DOJ to decide whether to prosecute. If they go forward then I believe Obama will have to be a witness.
Never liked this jerk going back to the Bork hearings when he testified as one of the Democrats main legal opponents against the good judge!
But Eric “Wingman” Holder, ordering the IRS to target Conservatives and giving guns to gang bangers who went on killing sprees is not an abuse of power
I think Trump will pardon him anyway, after the election, just to keep the rats from trying anything else with Flynn.
