Judge in Flynn Case Takes Cue From Barack Obama, Appoints Retired Judge to Look Into Perjury Charge

After the DOJ requested for the charges against Michael Flynn to be dismissed following revelations of FBI misconduct, the only holdup could be if the prosecuting judge held up the dismissal. Today, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan did just that.

After former President Barack Obama said on Friday that “There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free” it seemed to be a mistake, because Flynn was not charged with perjury.

It turns out that it has given Judge Sullivan an idea, as he now says that he is considering the possibility of holding Flynn in contempt for perjury. He has appointed a retired federal judge to argue against the DOJ’s motion to drop the criminal prosecution of Flynn.

Sullivan is a Clinton appointee who has been on the bench since 1994 and earlier it was reported that he had also opened the door for an amicus briefing in from those who say they would be affected by the precedent that might be set by the Justice Department’s decision not to go forward with its case about Flynn’s lies to the FBI after rejecting 24 past attempts at amicus briefings by Flynn’s side.

All of this serves as a distraction to earlier news that Democrat presidential candidate and presumed nominee Joe Biden appeared on an unmasking list earlier in regards to Flynn. Obama said that he would support his candidacy and it appears he is helping out again here.
