Judge Emmet Sullivan Issues Order Requesting “Friend of The Court Briefs” Before Flynn Ruling…

Now the purpose of the leaked conference call, aka instructions, from former President Barack Obama come into play.  In a very unusual move today Michael Flynn’s judge, Emmet Sullivan, enters an order granting outside parties the time to enter amicus briefs (friend of the court) to assist in guiding the court; a briefing schedule to follow.

…”Given the posture of the case the court anticipates individuals and organizations will seek leave to file amicus briefs” …

It looks like the judge wants to give former DOJ employees (2,000 signatures on letter) an opportunity to publicly undermine and undercut the position of the DOJ in moving to dismiss the charges.  Infuriating, remarkable and transparently political.

Judge Sullivan even cited famously political Judge Amy Berman Jackson, a subtle hat/tip to President Obama’s recent May 8th instructions.  Sullivan’s order can put to rest any contemplation of him holding corrupt prosecutor Brandon Van Grack to account; and only further delays removing the sword of damocles from atop Lt. General Michael Flynn.

The transparent purpose of allowing public comment, specifically from the Lawfare resistance group, is to undermine the DOJ and further create a political narrative around AG Bill Barr.   However, on the positive side this might stir Barr to release even more damaging information to counter the political efforts of Judge Sullivan.  Quite remarkable.

Everything around that places is hopelessly corrupt and political…

    This comment at https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/breaking-judge-sullivan-responds-in-flynn-case/ is worth letting soak in:

    Judge Sullivan was nominated to the federal bench by Bill Clinton. Here’s what an FBI internal whistleblower told Sibel Edmonds about ALL Clinton appointees to judge.

    “One of my FBI whistleblowers, and this was a decorated agent who never became a public whistleblower, but he went to court cases with the FBI internally because he DOJ IG, that is the Inspector General’s office, etc.
    One of the things this guy exposed, and I went to the media and I had this guy on the record with them but they never published, was: he was working between 1993 and 1997 in this division in the FBI, where one of his tasks was running background check on federal judge candidates, and this is during the Clinton administration, because those federal judges have to be cleared by the FBI. They look at their background: are they pedophiles, are they rapist, you know, do they have some financial nefarious activities etc.

    And he said, during these four years, when this decorated FBI agent, and this was 10 years, or 7, 8 years before he blew the whistle, he was running background checks on these federal judges, the way they were selecting the ones to appoint were the ones who had the highest number of skeletons. Meaning, the government, the Clinton administration (this is the head of the FBI, this is the OJ), they did not want to appoint any federal judges to the bench, and go through the confirmation process, if the judges, or the candidates, didn’t have enough skeletons, meaning they have to be rapists, pedophiles, despicable characters, and that information is collected during the background check, and then they are used against these judges, so the judges rule per government’s instruction.”

    Imagine a level of insanity so high that a judge in a criminal proceeding solicits public comment before granting a motion he is required by law to grant…

    …this is your Democrat Party, 2020.

    Sullivan is off the rails. I’ll be surprised if Powell and DOJ don’t jointly seek a stay of some sort from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. This is a level of nutty that boggles the mind.

    I cannot tell you how many times I have seen conservatives try to get something into Federal Court, and the judge tell them that they “lack standing” to bring suit. I know this is not apples to apples, but I cannot fathom how Judge Sullivan can ask for amicus briefs on a criminal case against an individual. This is so far out of left field that it is beyond absurd.

    Sullivan is now DROWNING is Brady material that was withheld by the prosecutors. And this Brady material clearly goes to the heart of the case against General Flynn. There is no reason at all for Sullivan to request these briefs. NONE.

    The decision had to do with THIRD PARTY AMICUS BRIEFS (exactly what Sullivan is now trying to do in the Flynn case).
    The 9th Circuit used OUTSIDE PARTIES’ OPINIONS in amicus briefs to MAKE THE COURT’S DECISION, rather than rely on the PARTIES TO THE CASE.
    Justice Ginsberg (of all people) wrote the decision and said:
    Instead of adjudicating the case presented by the parties, the appeals court named three amici and invited them to brief and argue issues framed by the panel [of circuit court judges], including a question Sineneng-Smith herself never raised …
    Lawyers for the parties to the appeal were assigned a secondary role, Ginsburg said. The three amici appointed to brief and argue were the circuit’s Federal Defender Organizations (as a group), the Immigrant Defense Project, and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild. The panel identified three issues for the briefing and gave amici 20 minutes to argue and 10 minutes to Sineneng-Smith’s counsel.
    The party presentation principle is supple, not ironclad,” Ginsburg wrote. “There are no doubt circumstances in which a modest initiating role for a court is appropriate. But this case scarcely fits that bill.”
    Although a court is not “hide-bound” by a party’s counsel’s precise arguments, Ginsburg said “the Ninth Circuit’s radical transformation of this case goes well beyond the pale.”
    Sullivan is trying to do the EXACT SAME THING. He is inviting outsiders who are NOT PARTIES TO THE CASE to come in and give their opinion, so Sullivan can MAKE A DECISION BASED ON THEIR VIEWPOINTS, and not the parties themselves (both of whom want the case dismissed).

    Sullivan called Flynn a traitor. No, Mr. Sullivan (you are now acting outside of your judicial authority, so you are not a “judge” anymore) … YOU are the traitor to your country.

    Let’s see if Sydney Powell is on top of her game. She should appeal what Sullivan is doing. If she does, she will win. SCOTUS just ruled unanimously on this very issue less than a week ago!

    If there is a silver lining here, maybe it is being done to establish, once and for all, that this type of shit that DS courts have been doing for years will NOT be tolerated in the upcoming prosecutions.

    Let’s watch what Sydney does …

      Do I understand correctly;
      in your comment you name Justice Ginsberg as committing some form of skullduggery then later you say the SCOTUS decided unanimously, the latter which would include Ginsberg.
      So, is the evidentiary of Ginsberg going against herself? Is this relevant to Flynn (or other defendants)? Or is it really no big deal.

    “Amicus Brief” on the USS Liberty:

    As the good ship Liberty approached the Equator, preparations began for the age-old tradition of “Crossing the Line.” The Court of King Neptune was quickly called into session and several “Pollywogs” shivered as they considered the consequences!

    The first ‘Wog to approach the Royal Court was Seaman Sullivan–and Neptune was not amused.

    “Sullivan! ‘Tis said you want an “Amicus Brief” before sentencing! Is this true Seaman Sullivan?” yelled Neptune. “Yes, yes, if it please the Royal Court,” piped Sullivan.

    Neptune delivered his verdict: “Now hear this! All Shellbacks muster in the Bo’sun Locker with shillelagh at hand to provide Sullivan his “Amicus Brief” on the backside!”

    I can’t remember or find it, but I read a interesting explanation for why Barr wanted to release Flynn.
    It sounds like something Sundance would say. And if it was here that I read it, I apologize.
    The reason Barr didn’t want to fight it out in court, instead dropping the charge – was because of the huge amount of government wrongdoing would have been laid bare before the public. Again, Barr protecting his own.


    • Jan says:

      Just found it. It is in Andrew McCarthy’s article on Fox, which links to National Review, which links to McCarthy’s piece on THE HILL.

      “As I explain in a piece at The Hill today, I understand why the Justice Department relied on a legal argument — viz., lack of materiality — for moving to dismiss the case against Michael Flynn. It spares DOJ the need to get into the facts of the case which, to put it mildly, are unflattering to the FBI and prosecutors. Nevertheless, the best reason to dismiss the Flynn case is that the government would not be able to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt in court. The evidence is equivocal, the witnesses have profound credibility problems — and those witnesses actually thought Flynn was not lying to them.“

        But once again, there are enough corrupt judges that this could go on forever. However, that is when they might bring in the rest of the corruption evidence to prosecute the rest of the cabal that was complicit in this dishonest and downright dirty dealing against a true patriot. It might also give Flynn an opportunity to spill his guts about all he knows about the rest of the cabal and their dirty dealings, evidence in hand! hE’S NOT STUPID!

It lines up with mail-in voting efforts, preposterous Covid bills, etc. Visit Dem/Lib blogs. These people live in an alternate reality. Thery are living a blue hatred while running in-place scared at the same time. The tactics are old ones. The media/celebrity is complicitly playing along. High stakes stuff.

        I keep asking myself: what is end-game for these people? Yes, terminating investigations into their felonies is the primary goal. But after that? How can they govern? They woni’t have a moral leg to stand on.

        We are actually in the first act of this drama. This is one reason why it is vital, at this point, to sit back and take names. The urgency of their dilemma is forcing many out of the woodwork. It’s obvious that key institutions have been suborned to the larger Left-wing agenda over several decades. We have seen glimpses of what these people are prepared to do. We are learning how the spiderweb of networks and personnel moves weave through the histories of these people.

        History has shown that all power, espcially illegimate/corrupt power, is ultimately transitory. If this is going to be played out to the end, then the time for conceiving and deploying countervailing strategies passed a while ago. But for the immediate present?

          I think this answers your question ( what is the end-game? ) and amplifies your comments.

          “Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

      Absolutely. Even with the bogus conviction, Stevens was still winning over socialist Mark Begich on election night by 4000 votes when election central closed down after midnight. I wouldn’t even be surprised if the Dems printed/recounted a few more ballots for Begich overnight.

      I had never voted for Stevens 4x before 2008, because of his spending. This time between the socialist Begich and the obvious railroading going on, I did, and shook his hand that night !

  12. Bill says:

    I’m a little bit confused. If Flynn was under surveillance by the IC, isn’t that bad news for us? That at minimum gives them a right to have been spying on him, no? And if he was a target of an investigation, doesn’t that mean they had a right to “one hope” all over the board (no matter how F’d up that rule is) and suck in Trumps entire campaign?

    And Obama warning Trump prior to Trump taking office makes Obama look like he gave fair warning to Tump?

    This sounds like bad news when I read it. Can someone help me understand what it is I’m missing? As I’m sure I’m missing something. Like, the surveillance on Flynn was illegal?! But if it was illegal then wouldn’t unmasking still be necessary? I’m confused by the “Flynn was already under investigation” statement I guess. Was he being illegally spied on, or was he under approved investigation? And what gave the precedence for the investigation if he was a legit target of an investigation?


    • Maquis says:

      Bill, it looks like an all of the above kind of deal. Nothing was justified, but they tried to pretend it was. There was no legal foundation for an investigation, they played at fulfilling legalities much as the Nazis kept exquisite records of their barbarities, to create the illusion of propriety, but it was all jacked up from beginning to end.

    Just a curious bit of side ‘trivia’ that came to me last night when reading the comments on what has come about in the last two days or so.

    A few people have made the comment, “the dam is bursting”, or similar such comments. As a mad war historian so to speak, the code word for the breaching of the Möhne dam during Operation Chastise, otherwise know as ‘The Dambusters’ immediately sprung to mind. I won’t say what that code word was here, as it’s neither the time or place to print such word.

    For those who may know it, it seems to fit perfectly with what is going on. For those who don’t know, just do a search on Operation Chastise or The Dambusters.

    BTW, it was the name of Guy Gibson’s dog, who was killed (run over by a car) just before 617 Sqn was about to take off for the mission.


  14. Dan says:

    Judge Sullivan is dumber than a box of dried up dog turds and has just done President Trump a favor. George Stephanopolous, no fan of Trump just had to tee up softballs to Joe Biden about what he knew about the discussions about Flynn in the Obama meeting. That means even the most ardent anti-Trump msm is having to cover this. Now consider the following hypothetical:

    Sullivan invites Amicus briefs from lawfare people and in doing so contradicts his previous ruling against briefs on behalf of Flynn exposing his own corruption.

    Sullivan used these briefs to reject DOJ’s withdrawal and proceeds with sentencing. The left crows while the sane people point out that this was something never done before which is what Obama criticizes the DOJ withdrawal for – furthering the publicity of the corruption.

    Sullivan imposes a gag order on Flynn which refuses to comply with by making public statements exposing the corruption of the DOJ, FBI, and Judge Sullivan. More uproar, and more people focusing on the story.

    Sullivan sentences Flynn and Trump orders the Marshal Service and BOP not to enforce sentence. More eruption and more exposure of the corruption.

    All along the way the declassified documents are released exposing the left’s claims as lies following the same pattern of the impeachment proceedings which were disastrous for the Dem’s. Trump holds a convention where the theme is the Obama administration sought to manipulate the election and disenfranchise every American. He and America overcame and he was elected. Before he was sworn in they launched a coup attempt and have spent the entire 3 1/2 years trying to remove him from office and prevent him from doing what America elected him to do. They falsified charges and launched the Mueller investigation knowing the pretenses were false. They spent 2 years leaking false accusations to the press that were contradicted by their sworn testimony to Congress which they tried to hide. They even tried to impeach him knowing full well the charges were false

    Despite all of these efforts Trump managed to reignite the economy and achieved the lowest unemployment in American history along with the greatest growth in the stock market in history. But they weren’t done. We got hit with the virus…and these sick bastards, the same ones that tried to cancel your votes, cynically used the virus for their political benefit. When I was seeking to close the borders to protect America against the virus they were trying to impeach me. They called me a racist and urged everyone to come down to Chinatown and mingle. And when they spread the virus they blamed me. Blue state governors, like Andrew Cuomo in New York refused to buy the ventilators his advisors recommended and when it appeared that people in New York might die because of his decisions he blamed me. When he ordered infected patients to be moved to nursing homes, where the most vulnerable people were he caused the deaths of thousands – and blamed me.
    My administration reacted quickly and worked with the private sector to develop more testing capability and produce more ventilators and PPE than ever before. And these Governors, like the bitch in Michigan, and that fat slob in Illinois, and Fredo in New York, and by the way I think I owe an apology to Chris Cuomo…it turns out that he is the smart brother and the older one is Fredo. When these Governor’s failed their States and their people bore the brunt of their failure by suffering the most infections and deaths, they begged for help from the federal Government. Despite their politicization of this challenge we helped. We sent them hospital ships, and ventilators, and PPE and medical personnel and all they did was whine and point the fingers.

    We gave guidance and these Governor’s, some of them reacted sensibly, and some of the acted stupidly. Come of them acted like tyrants. Mayor DeBlasio in NYC reduced the numbers of busses and trains running forcing people to cram closer together and spread the virus. Fredo Cuomo forgot that there is more to New York State than New York city and imposed the same controls on upstate New York, which except, except for the nursing homes infected by the Governor, hardly were impacted. Governor’s like that nazi bitch in Michigan threatened to arrest people for buying seeds to plant food or for going to their remote cabins where they wouldn’t be exposed. And that fat ass in Illinois ordered people to stay in their homes and then flew his family down to Florida. And let’s not forget California. There are a lot of good people in California – except for their politicians. Old Governor Newsome pratically lost control of his bladder he was so excited about locking people down. He ordered people to stay away from sunshine, salt water, and fresh air – the things that kill the virus. He and his fellow travelers were so eager to use their power to restrict people they even arrested a man for paddle boarding alone on the the ocean simply because he didn’t comply with their stupid and illegal order.

    But let’s be honest here. Fredo Cuomo, Witless in Michigan, Pritzer in Illinois, Newsome and Pelosi in California, that clown in Washington – these people are that stupid. They are just that hungry for power. They have done everything they can to keep their state’s locked down so the economy stays bad and they can win an election.

    If you don’t think these leftist politicians are that evil…just look at what they did to Gen. Flynn. They took a good man and tried to ruin his life. They threatened to attack his family. They falsified evidence. They lied to the court. And Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer, and Adam Schiff new about this all along. All of the democrat establishment knew the whole thing was a fraud. They new the Mueller investigation was a fraud. They leaked false information to fake news who reported every lie. And that’s not all They tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh with completely made up stories – just to try to preserve their power. They said you needed to believe all women. Except when it comes to Tara Reade who says she was sexually molested by the Democratic nominee – and who has witnesses and court records that support her store from the time it happened. The leaders of the democrat party are OK with breaking every law in the book to frame a decorated General. They won’t talk about the woman their nominee assaulted. They do nothing to prepare their states for crisis and then point the finger when their decisions actually got people killed.

    And the worst of all is these people exploited a real crisis, even allowed people to die, just so they could gain politically. Sadly, we have lost 100,000 people to the corona virus. About 20,000 more than we lost in 2018 from the flu. But we didn’t shut everything down n 2018. We didn’t throw 40 million people out of work. We just tried to protect the vulnerable and now these same people that framed the General, that broke every law on the books, that tossed aside the woman their candidate assaulted, that came begging to my administration for help when they were unprepared, who criticized every move we made to provide medical equipment, testing, doctors, etc.. these same people have done everything they possibly can to block economic recovery. They have kept their states locked down, arrested people for going to Church or getting fresh air, anything at all they can do to stop us from rebuilding.

    So the choice is clear. American can go with the people who abuse power to destroy the lives of innocent people; the politicians who order infected people into nursing homes, who weaponize the agencies of government thwart the choice of the American people; who trash their victims of sexual assault. Or, America can choose to throw those people out of every office and every state where they have done, and are doing, such great damage to the lives and liberty of the American people. We can unite and get back to work, stay the course and Make America Great Again.

      It cannot be the latter. Sullivan is doing a Pontius Pilate move – he will allow the Amicus parties to make his decisions. He will face no consequences for this. The Dems will use this case ultimately to argue that the Supreme Court is politically corrupt if they overrule Sullivan and Flynn ends up free. The Dems want to see Flynn in jail, Trump and DOJ humiliated, and the Supremes under their thumb or set up for future court packing.

I hope he still has the memory of a case brought before him by Eric Hollder which he summarily dismissed. re wrongful prosecution by the FBI.. He didn’t ask for his peers for a comment on that issue before he made that decision. or did I somehow miss that?
    I believe Judge Sullivan should recuse himself from the Flynn case as he is prejudiced. beyond my comprehension. Asking for a consensus from his peers?
    There is a saying re a “limp D*ick science major.” Sullivan is acting like a limp d*ck Judge. I hope Sidney Powell .sends the case to the Supreme Court if “Judge” Sullivan can’t or won’t make a decision on his own.merits re the Flynn case,

      “Asking for help,” or seeking cover? Possibly for the purposes of enacting a predetermined course that cannot be the least justified nor even explained sans a plethora of earnest input from Derp State fools taking the heat off the incompetent and corrupt judge.

        We’ll know when just who it is who throws Sullivan under the bus. It will be one of their lackeys who does the deed. Yet, connect the sycophants with the names and we’ll know who it is. When you know who, you’ll know why. And when you know why, you’ll know what is at stake for them/what they hold so precious to remain hidden.

        *the above is based on the assumption that each evil doer has their own most precious thing to be kept hidden. I’m putting my marker on the she-beast.

        When you are all in for power, yes, a judge is expendable.
        The really neat thing is as more of the foot soldiers are discarded, the corral gets smaller for the knot of evil doers at the top. Their game now is to avoid exposure. And the noose tightens….

    the SCOTUS is just as corrupt as Sullivan, BUT WITH MORE POWER.

    Past Is Prologue…
    My first impression was that Judge Sullivan was wired – loyal, or perhaps “preferential” to Bari Soetoro-Malik Shabazz & Eric Holder.

    However, after researching the WWIII vet – up for re-election – Senator Ted Steven’s kangaroo court case, I realized this Judge prefers to tie up loose ends In a neat colorful bow, & especially appreciates newly discovered evidence, aka whistleblowers, which augments the miscarriage of justice and. the RECIDIVIST corruption at the DOJ.

    The Amicus Brief just might Open a BIGGER Can of Worms….

    1. For 14 minutes, April 7, 2009, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia: “In nearly 25 years on the bench, I’ve never seen anything approaching the mishandling and misconduct that I’ve seen in this case.” But he was far from done.
    2. Former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK). was convicted in October 2008 of violating federal ethics laws by failing to report thousands of dollars in gifts he received from friends.
    3. But a team of prosecutors from the U.S. Department of Justice was accused of failing to hand over key exculpatory evidence and knowingly presenting false evidence to the jury.
    4. After the conviction, the Justice Department discovered previously unrevealed evidence.
    5.Also, a prosecution witness and an agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) came forward alleging prosecutorial misconduct. On December 2, 2008, FBI Special Agent Chad Joy filed a whistleblower complaint stating that prosecutors tried to hide a witness and intentionally withheld evidence from defense lawyers. Joy further accused a fellow FBI agent of having an inappropriate relationship with star witness Bill Allen. (Bill Allen, the senator’s personal friend /pal, testified at trial that he never billed his friend for work on his house, and that Stevens knew he was getting special treatment.)
    6. On April Fools’ Day, newly appointed U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced that he had had enough and recommended that the seven-count conviction against the former Alaska senator be dismissed. the indictment “in the interest of justice.”
    “After careful review, I have concluded that certain information should have been provided to the defense for use at trial,” Holder said in a statement.
    7. Sullivan then ordered an inquiry into the prosecutors’ handling of the case. Since the misconduct allegations were “too serious and too numerous” to be left to an internal Justice Department investigation. He appointed Washington lawyer Henry F. Schuelke III of Janis, Schuelke & Wechsler to investigate whether members of the trial team should be prosecuted for criminal contempt.

    Brendan V. Sullivan Jr., Stevens’ defense lawyer and a senior partner at Williams & Connolly LLP, described the misconduct of prosecutors as “stunning…the case is a sad story and a warning to everyone that any citizen can be convicted “if prosecutors are hell-bent on ignoring the Constitution and willing to present false evidence.”

    The Supreme Court just unanimously overturned a 9th circuit case for judges who “invited third parties to argue the case at the last minute” then ruled (improperly) on that basis. Sullivan is attempting to pull the same thing here. That’s my bet.

    The Judge most not have read Adam Schiff’s transcripts. When high officials of Obama testified under oath that there was no conclusion on Michael Flynn. The judge should drop the case and should whole the witness in this case for lying to the court.


  21. islandpalmtrees says:

    Those responsible for unmasking Flynn’s have just been declassified by DNI “Ric” Grenell.

    We need to realize that the Coup/”Resistance” will Not.Go.Quietly. They will not. Wrap your head around that idea, because that is where we are. It will take force to get this done in the end. Quite frankly, I expect violence – started by the Coup Plotters/ Resistance – before this is over, and worry about the safety of those in the front lines of the cause of justice and the restoration of the Rule of Law in our country. The strength of their rage and the irrationality of TDS has had me wondering all along just exactly what is behind all this, since partisan rancor does not explain it Money, criminality, power. Something Big.

    I don’t get it.

    So now the judge is going to be the one and all? Can the judge even move to sentencing when there is no longer a charge and the guilty plea was taken back ( or tried to at least ).

    The prosecution withdrew the charges with prejudice.
    The defense has proven misconduct by the prosecution.

    Up until now, the judge seemed to be fair, but now what? It seems like the judge was playing a game all along. After all the guy had pled guilty… so just like Hillary, they all thought the result was in the bag.

    Then along comes Trump and his DOJ and his voters.

    The masks are falling.

    Time to put out some scaffolding in DC and for all of those Nazis all over the country ( hear that Gov. Loathsome) that are ruling by decree.,

    Here’s an interesting take on what Judge Sullivan might be up to. It is definitely worth a read.


    The thread shows:
    1. How Sullivan may just be laying a trap for the prosecutors.
    2. Shows how Sullivan’s earlier actions around the famous ‘Treason’ discussion led to:
    – the demise of the Covington team
    – the hiring of Sidney Powell
    – painting Van Grack into a corner on charges and ultimately the dismissal of the case.

    The writer backs up his points by walking through the court transcript and highlighting the details… literally.

    What’s the going rate to buy a corrupt judge these days?
    Where are the impeachment papers? Ill sign on to get rid of this biased/compromised judge any day of the week.


  26. Trey Dawg says:

    Sullivan should be working on a proper punishment for the prosecution withholding Brady materials and other felonious activities……
