D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has been in no hurry to dispense with the Michael Flynn case, and I’m sorry to report it’s not over yet.

Observers thought he might go ahead and dismiss the case early this week, but it was not to be. Tuesday evening, he “indefinitely postponed” any ruling. It’s not enough for him that the Department of Justice has had it reviewed by an outside U.S. attorney and recommended dropping it; Sullivan is inviting OUTSIDE GROUPS, no doubt with their own political agendas, to file amicus (“friend of the court”) briefs, to let them all come forward and make a case against Flynn’s exoneration.

That doesn’t sound like justice to me –- just the opposite. Although conservative groups may also file briefs, this ruling by Judge Sullivan will turn the case into a total political circus. The left will organize like crazy to deluge the court with condemnations of Flynn. (“He lied! He pleaded guilty!”) That is not how decisions of guilt or innocence should be made. Flynn should never have been questioned by the FBI in the first place, as investigators had found nothing, and after four years of this atrocity, Flynn deserves much better. I hate to say it, but he deserves a better JUDGE. Investigative reporter Sean Davis agrees.

Here’s the full story at FOX NEWS, updated to say that an ethics complaint is being filed against Judge Sullivan by independent journalist Michael Cernovich, because the judge has previously refused to let groups file pro-Flynn amicus briefs. Cernovich says the judge is “acting as a politician, not a judge.” I’ll second that motion.

In other (better) Flynn news, we know as of Tuesday evening at least part of what was in the mysterious satchel that acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell hand-delivered to the Justice Department last week. As Ed Henry reported on FOX NEWS, the contents were one of several batches being declassified and brought over and may explain the pre-emptive strikes in recent days by President Obama and former intel officials. The bag contains a list of the former Obama administration officials who targeted Flynn and unmasked him in classified transcripts of recorded conversations, including those with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

This could be illegal, and the leak of his name to the Washington Post was undeniably illegal. Flynn’s name had been redacted because, as an American citizen, he has certain legal rights to privacy. (I’ll wait while you fall to the floor, helpless with laughter.)

Seriously, leaking unmasked information and/or using it for political gain is against federal law. Well, unless Obama –- or James Comey, on behalf of Obama –- told you to do it. I’m only half kidding.

Grenell has declassified the names of those who unmasked Flynn’s identity between Election Day 2016 and Inauguration Day 2017. This was an intense period for the “Trump/Russia” investigators, especially January; we’ve all seen the timeline. In particular, Obama held an Oval Office confab on January 5 and afterwards discussed the Flynn recordings with Comey and Sally Yates.

Attorney General Bill Barr has recommended dropping the case against Flynn, and U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly looking at the unmasking and leaking to see if prosecutions are warranted. Those who want the names of the unmaskers will have to wait a while; according to Sarah Carter, they will be made public, but Grenell and Barr will “work through this and decide who is best to release the names.”

Of course, the HUGE question is this: how did Obama come to be so very well informed of the Flynn surveillance and his call with Kislyak? By January 5, he knew all about it, to Yates’ great surprise. Maybe we’ll know soon; sources tell Ed Henry that Grenell has “four or five” other batches of intel coming, and that “it could get sticky for [former CIA Director] John Brennan in particular.”

Apparently Brennan knew something that contradicted the chosen narrative that Russia wanted to help Trump win. It was that Russia actually wanted HILLARY to win, because she was “a known quantity” and “more malleable” than a wild-card businessman like Trump.

ASIDE: Isn’t this what we’ve been saying all along? Given all we know, it defies logic to say Russia backed Donald Trump, as the fictional Steele “dossier” claimed. Good heavens, look at what Hillary did for them –- how can anyone be surprised that Putin wanted her in the White House after she approved the deal that led to their owning 20 percent of America’s uranium supply? She might as well have been their lobbyist. Plus, there's no telling what they might have had on her to use as blackmail. No, Russia was “WITH HER."

Recall that our nation’s 17 (17!) intel agencies put together an “Intelligence Community Assessment” that concluded Russia had tried to damage Hillary and help Trump win in 2016. Evidence that Brennan suppressed intel saying Russia wanted Hillary is reportedly part of what Grenell is in the process of sending over. Even though Brennan had to be aware of the political origins of the “dossier,” he pushed hard for it to be included in the assessment, and he got his way, at least partly; a “dossier” summary was included.

So far, this all seems like old news to us –- and likely to you, too –- as we’ve followed investigative reporters who had excellent sources and were reporting on this for years, mostly into a vacuum. The important thing now is that we’re finally seeing evidence, not just what “sources say.” It’s all true. The reporters who’ve been worthy of our attention all along were not just way out ahead of the pack, but also right. Unlike the “journalists” so wedded to their anti-Trump narrative that they ignore anything that challenges it, we want most of all to be correct. If we’re not, we’ll say so. But so far, we are. Correct, that is.

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsay Graham has been saying for months that he would seek testimony from Obama officials about the Russia investigation, issuing subpoenas if necessary. He wants to hear specifically about that January 5 meeting and the unmasking. As he told Sean Hannity Tuesday night, he wants to know if unmasking was “used as a political weapon.” He also wants to know “why Sally Yates didn’t know about the Flynn investigation but President Obama did.” And he wants Grenell to go ahead and release the names of the unmaskers.

The fact that the national security adviser for an incoming President was surveilled by the outgoing administration –- possibly the outgoing President –- is truly stunning. “If I ever find that the intelligence community is unmasking my phone calls to foreign leaders where I discuss foreign policy as a United States senator, heads will roll,” Graham said.

But the Senate has no prosecutorial power; that has to come from the Justice Department. The Senate can have hearings if they want to, but justice is in the hands of Durham and Barr, who must know this is the worst scandal in American government, possibly ever.

    Hopefully it will all come out and be exposed. We've been waiting a long time for that to happen. I'm praying for our President and his administration. I'm praying for him to only listen to godly advisers whom God has put in his inner circle. They're are several in that circle that aren't giving him the right advise. I am praying for great discernment on his part!!! God bless and protect all our godly leaders!!!!

    I can't remember so much exculpatory evidence presented in a court case involving the prosecution who with malice, did wantonly, knowingly and willfully withhold said evidence in question that the judge did not dismiss the case immediately.
    The only thing that makes sense is that the deep state extends directly to the judiciary.

    What I will never understand is that we knew much of this, all along, and the Republican Senators and Representatives did very little, to nothing, about it. The people have been waiting for almost 4 years, for them to act, and yet they don't. If they are not for this country, what is the use? Now, we know the dems are going to cheat, every which way, to win this next election, and nothing has been done to stop that. Only GOD pulled us through the 2016 election. Will HE even bother, this time?

    It is SO IMPORTANT General Flynn receive justice by having the case totally dismissed. Judge Sullivan must carry out true justice. This is not a question of just Flynn. It is scary to think this could happen to any American citizen who could be absolutely destroyed if certain people dislike us. It is a case of Americans' constitutional rights because Flynn was treated horrendously.

  • Judy Williams

    05/13/2020 04:18 PM

    How is Judge Sullivan allowed to do this? Since the evidence seems quite clear that General Flynn was ambushed and that he pleaded guilty under duress, continuing this case any longer is ridiculous. Is it possible for another judge to rule on this case or dismiss it? No wonder citizens are losing confidence in our judicial as well as our political system. So many so-called leaders are corrupt.

    If a Republican had done what Hillary did, they would have been locked up long ago.

    I have taught my kids a long time ago not to do something wrong or put yourself in front of a judge. Most citizens do not study the law and they believe judges are honest look at the way the buffoon in Texas treated the owner of a salon now we have another buffoon with a political agenda not a law agenda but a hate filled agenda he thinks he is on set in the movie Planet of the Apes. Very Ignorant and unfair. Now everyone in this country should want a judge that is unbiased conservative judges rule on the law and uses common sense this judge Flynn has is an attention getter, power hungry, deceitful judge and not only be disbarred he should pay punitive assets to the court for wasting its time and punitive asset to Flynn. Maybe a few years in prison just to set an example for being corrupt.

  • Tony Weaver

    All judge Sullivan is doing is running up lawyer bills. I suggest that judge Sullivan’s pay be withheld until this case is resolved

    On another note , remember no one is above the law, even presidential candidates, career personnel, lawyers, special counsel staff, etc
    Let’s see how that goes

D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has been in no hurry to dispense with the Michael Flynn case, and I’m sorry to report it’s not over yet.

Observers thought he might go ahead and dismiss the case early this week, but it was not to be. Tuesday evening, he “indefinitely postponed” any ruling.

    I have taught my kids a long time ago not to do something wrong or put yourself in front of a judge. Most citizens do not study the law and they believe judges are honest look at the way the buffoon in Texas treated the owner of a salon now we have another buffoon with a political agenda not a law agenda but a hate filled agenda he thinks he is on set in the movie Planet of the Apes. Very Ignorant and unfair. Now everyone in this country should want a judge that is unbiased conservative judges rule on the law and uses common sense this judge Flynn has is an attention getter, power hungry, deceitful judge and not only be disbarred he should pay punitive assets to the court for wasting its time and punitive asset to Flynn. Maybe a few years in prison just to set an example for being corrupt.

    All judge Sullivan is doing is running up lawyer bills. I suggest that judge Sullivan’s pay be withheld until this case is resolved

    On another note , remember no one is above the law, even presidential candidates, career personnel, lawyers, special counsel staff, etc
    Let’s see how that goes

D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has been in no hurry to dispense with the Michael Flynn case, and I’m sorry to report it’s not over yet.

Observers thought he might go ahead and dismiss the case early this week, but it was not to be. Tuesday evening, he “indefinitely postponed” any ruling. It’s not enough for him that the Department of Justice has had it reviewed by an outside U.S. attorney and recommended dropping it; Sullivan is inviting OUTSIDE GROUPS, no doubt with their own political agendas, to file amicus (“friend of the court”) briefs, to let them all come forward and make a case against Flynn’s exoneration.

That doesn’t sound like justice to me –- just the opposite. Although conservative groups may also file briefs, this ruling by Judge Sullivan will turn the case into a total political circus. The left will organize like crazy to deluge the court with condemnations of Flynn. (“He lied! He pleaded guilty!”) That is not how decisions of guilt or innocence should be made. Flynn should never have been questioned by the FBI in the first place, as investigators had found nothing, and after four years of this atrocity, Flynn deserves much better. I hate to say it, but he deserves a better JUDGE. Investigative reporter Sean Davis agrees.

Here’s the full story at FOX NEWS, updated to say that an ethics complaint is being filed against Judge Sullivan by independent journalist Michael Cernovich, because the judge has previously refused to let groups file pro-Flynn amicus briefs. Cernovich says the judge is “acting as a politician, not a judge.” I’ll second that motion.

In other (better) Flynn news, we know as of Tuesday evening at least part of what was in the mysterious satchel that acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell hand-delivered to the Justice Department last week. As Ed Henry reported on FOX NEWS, the contents were one of several batches being declassified and brought over and may explain the pre-emptive strikes in recent days by President Obama and former intel officials. The bag contains a list of the former Obama administration officials who targeted Flynn and unmasked him in classified transcripts of recorded conversations, including those with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

This could be illegal, and the leak of his name to the Washington Post was undeniably illegal. Flynn’s name had been redacted because, as an American citizen, he has certain legal rights to privacy. (I’ll wait while you fall to the floor, helpless with laughter.)

Seriously, leaking unmasked information and/or using it for political gain is against federal law. Well, unless Obama –- or James Comey, on behalf of Obama –- told you to do it. I’m only half kidding.

Grenell has declassified the names of those who unmasked Flynn’s identity between Election Day 2016 and Inauguration Day 2017. This was an intense period for the “Trump/Russia” investigators, especially January; we’ve all seen the timeline. In particular, Obama held an Oval Office confab on January 5 and afterwards discussed the Flynn recordings with Comey and Sally Yates.

Attorney General Bill Barr has recommended dropping the case against Flynn, and U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly looking at the unmasking and leaking to see if prosecutions are warranted. Those who want the names of the unmaskers will have to wait a while; according to Sarah Carter, they will be made public, but Grenell and Barr will “work through this and decide who is best to release the names.”

Of course, the HUGE question is this: how did Obama come to be so very well informed of the Flynn surveillance and his call with Kislyak? By January 5, he knew all about it, to Yates’ great surprise. Maybe we’ll know soon; sources tell Ed Henry that Grenell has “four or five” other batches of intel coming, and that “it could get sticky for [former CIA Director] John Brennan in particular.”

Apparently Brennan knew something that contradicted the chosen narrative that Russia wanted to help Trump win. It was that Russia actually wanted HILLARY to win, because she was “a known quantity” and “more malleable” than a wild-card businessman like Trump.

ASIDE: Isn’t this what we’ve been saying all along? Given all we know, it defies logic to say Russia backed Donald Trump, as the fictional Steele “dossier” claimed. Good heavens, look at what Hillary did for them –- how can anyone be surprised that Putin wanted her in the White House after she approved the deal that led to their owning 20 percent of America’s uranium supply? She might as well have been their lobbyist. Plus, there's no telling what they might have had on her to use as blackmail. No, Russia was “WITH HER."

Recall that our nation’s 17 (17!) intel agencies put together an “Intelligence Community Assessment” that concluded Russia had tried to damage Hillary and help Trump win in 2016. Evidence that Brennan suppressed intel saying Russia wanted Hillary is reportedly part of what Grenell is in the process of sending over. Even though Brennan had to be aware of the political origins of the “dossier,” he pushed hard for it to be included in the assessment, and he got his way, at least partly; a “dossier” summary was included.

So far, this all seems like old news to us –- and likely to you, too –- as we’ve followed investigative reporters who had excellent sources and were reporting on this for years, mostly into a vacuum. The important thing now is that we’re finally seeing evidence, not just what “sources say.” It’s all true. The reporters who’ve been worthy of our attention all along were not just way out ahead of the pack, but also right. Unlike the “journalists” so wedded to their anti-Trump narrative that they ignore anything that challenges it, we want most of all to be correct. If we’re not, we’ll say so. But so far, we are. Correct, that is.

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsay Graham has been saying for months that he would seek testimony from Obama officials about the Russia investigation, issuing subpoenas if necessary. He wants to hear specifically about that January 5 meeting and the unmasking. As he told Sean Hannity Tuesday night, he wants to know if unmasking was “used as a political weapon.” He also wants to know “why Sally Yates didn’t know about the Flynn investigation but President Obama did.” And he wants Grenell to go ahead and release the names of the unmaskers.

The fact that the national security adviser for an incoming President was surveilled by the outgoing administration –- possibly the outgoing President –- is truly stunning. “If I ever find that the intelligence community is unmasking my phone calls to foreign leaders where I discuss foreign policy as a United States senator, heads will roll,” Graham said.

But the Senate has no prosecutorial power; that has to come from the Justice Department. The Senate can have hearings if they want to, but justice is in the hands of Durham and Barr, who must know this is the worst scandal in American government, possibly ever.

    Hopefully it will all come out and be exposed. We've been waiting a long time for that to happen. I'm praying for our President and his administration. I'm praying for him to only listen to godly advisers whom God has put in his inner circle. They're are several in that circle that aren't giving him the right advise. I am praying for great discernment on his part!!! God bless and protect all our godly leaders!!!!

    I can't remember so much exculpatory evidence presented in a court case involving the prosecution who with malice, did wantonly, knowingly and willfully withhold said evidence in question that the judge did not dismiss the case immediately.
    The only thing that makes sense is that the deep state extends directly to the judiciary.
    It will be most interesting to see who the friends of the court are that come out of hiding.

    Good Character is the best insurance; crooks get trapped in their sinful lust.
    You can't find firm footing in a SWAMP, but life rooted in God stands firm.
    Remove the wicked from leadership and authority will be credible and God-honoring. Book of Proverbs. Expose it Lord, nothing HIDDEN! vindicate we the people, our beloved President and those that they have LIED about and have suffered a great INJUSTICE.

    It seems the rats on Obama's crime mob might be getting a bit nervous as Biden might be guilty of unmasking Flynn the heads of our nations agency at the time might be guilty as well the Rats names are the big Rat Obama, Brennon, Clapper, Comey, Powell, Rice the whole nest of Rats will emerge from the garbage pile rats don't like the light they better get some good sunglasses. We knew these Rats were infected with corruption maybe we will finally get them medicated JAIL!!

    What I will never understand is that we knew much of this, all along, and the Republican Senators and Representatives did very little, to nothing, about it. The people have been waiting for almost 4 years, for them to act, and yet they don't. If they are not for this country, what is the use? Now, we know the dems are going to cheat, every which way, to win this next election, and nothing has been done to stop that. Only GOD pulled us through the 2016 election. Will HE even bother, this time?

    I AM NOT A LAWYER BUT IT WOULD APPEAR THAT OBAMA MAY HAVE COMMITED TREASON AND SHOULD BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW. THIS IS IMPORTANT IF WE ARE TO CONVINCE FUTURE POLITICIONS NOT TO COMMIT CRIMES.

    It is SO IMPORTANT General Flynn receive justice by having the case totally dismissed. Judge Sullivan must carry out true justice. This is not a question of just Flynn. It is scary to think this could happen to any American citizen who could be absolutely destroyed if certain people dislike us. It is a case of Americans' constitutional rights because Flynn was treated horrendously.

  • Judy Williams

    05/13/2020 04:18 PM

    How is Judge Sullivan allowed to do this? Since the evidence seems quite clear that General Flynn was ambushed and that he pleaded guilty under duress, continuing this case any longer is ridiculous. Is it possible for another judge to rule on this case or dismiss it? No wonder citizens are losing confidence in our judicial as well as our political system. So many so-called leaders are corrupt.

    There is no issue to be decided! Flynn was set up and framed. Obama wanted Flynn OUT!! The judge is overreaching and apparently craves the attention he's getting from THE MEDIA. Flynn was not guilty of anything an needs to go free immediately. Those that FRAMED him should be CHARGED with the CRIME! Look no further than Obama. HE SET FLYNN UP!! The judge knows that!!

  • JUDA YAUGER

    Isn't it possible that Sullivan wants to try to force Pres. Trump
    to pardon him and then to castigate the pres. for doing so since
    he hadn't dropped the chages?

  • Darlene Osuji

    05/13/2020 01:59 PM

    Dear Mike,
    Of course Flynn was innocent!
    But if no charges are brought against the people who did this to him what good is it?
    If a Republican had done what Hillary did, they would have been locked up long ago.
    Conservatives are tired of this crap, if Republicans don't step up they might just get voted out!
    God forbid if Democrats get control of everything!
    Thank you,
    Darlene

    I never believed Judge Sullivan would sign on to drop the case against Gen. Flynn. The Obama people accomplished their plan and will not give it up at all costs. Reminds me of when Jezebell had Naboth framed and killed because Ahab wanted his vineyard. A complete set-up!

  • Deborah McClure

    05/13/2020 01:38 PM

    After reading about the Jan 5th meeting, again, and seeing the Obama administration wanted Flynn to perjure himself, then it's no wonder that's why Pres. Obama said the charge was perjury. That's what it was suppose to be. But it didn't turn out that way and again he can't accept it wasn't perjury.

    Hi. Now, hold the train! What! He free, exonerated! What in the world happened?.You know, I get so tired of the constant harassment to him and others, and, and, nothing whatever ! Nothing! On the treason dictator Obama & Crime Mafia Boss Hillary have done! Comey, on and on the list! A do nothing so called House, wicked Democrats! Your telling me, No One, NO ONE has The BACKBONE to persecute and, actually convict, indict, or whatever it's called, Pass sentence, and Actually have them GO TO JAIL!!!!!!!!!!!
