Judge Sullivan slams brakes on Watergate prosecutors' push for jail in Flynn case
quote:

A federal judge Wednesday temporarily denied a filing by 16 former Watergate prosecutors urging the court to deny the Justice Department’s request to drop the criminal charges against Michael Flynn and sentence him to jail instead.

U.S. District Court Emmet Sullivan said in a brief order he will provide a schedule for interested parties to submit filings. The order also mooted a bid by Flynn’s lawyers to block the group’s brief.

The prosecutors may be able to refile its brief once Judge Sullivan implements a schedule.

What does this mean, why did he start this and now semi-end it?

So they are allowed to opine their opinion on Flynn but not call for him to be jailed?

This "judge" is all over the map. He needs to recuse himself so somebody competent who cares about the rule of law can take his place

I don’t know much about law. But it seems to me this judge doesn’t know what to do.

It means the jugdge is being petty because he has to let someone he accused of treason in open court go free. And he doesn't like that one bit.

Messiah Obama likely called and told him what to do. The judge knew he couldn’t do it so he punted to buy some time. That’s my best guess.

I means he's apparently going to let everyone put in their two cents.

Now Sullivan is helping to run out to clock to keep Flynn quiet.

re: Judge Sullivan slams brakes on Watergate prosecutors' push for jail in Flynn case
Ya know what... I laughed when I read your comment that the black jesus called Judge Sullivan. But the judge probably got a call from WJC who appointed him and the black jesus.

Maybe the lawyers can opine more but

Please read the italic quote; it sounds like prog filth Obama or Holder told the hacks to say this... One of them has TDS so bad she has social media calling for Trump to be jailed immediately.

quote:

Earlier this week 16 former Watergate prosecutors filed a friend-of-the-court brief comparing the Flynn case to Watergate, the criminal probe that forced President Nixon’s resignation.

“The parallels and the contrasts between the Watergate affair and the present situation now before this Court make manifest that Amici have a direct and substantial interest in the proper disposition of the pending Motion directed by the incumbent Attorney General to protect a close ally of the President,” the prosecutors wrote in the filing.

Flynn’s legal team quickly sought to block the filing, arguing Wednesday morning that the former prosecutors have “no special role and no authority” to intervene in the case.

“The former prosecutors are all free to submit opinion pieces to associated media outlets — as many have already done — but this court is not the forum for their alleged special interest,” his lawyers wrote.

Flynn’s lawyers said the former Watergate prosecutors don’t deserve special treatment just because they were involved in a historic case.
