Absolutely Nuts – Court Appointed Amicus Prosecutor Requests: Briefing Schedule, Oral Arguments and Possible Witness Fact-Finding, in Flynn Case…

This is so far outside the bounds of traditional judicial activity it is unprecedented.  In the case against Michael Flynn the court appointed amicus curiae, essentially a court appointed outside lawyer enlisted to prosecute the case despite the DOJ withdrawal motion, John Gleeson has now filed a motion requesting: (1) a briefing schedule, (2) oral arguments; and (3) the possibility of interviewing witnesses.

Within Mr. Gleeson’s motion (link here) he will file his amicus brief on June 10th, and asks Judge Sullivan to set up a briefing schedule and allow him to make oral arguments.

Why would John Gleeson get the chance for a hearing to make an oral argument within the court, yet Flynn’s defense team couldn’t get a hearing scheduled on his original motion to withdraw his plea?  This is ridiculous.

In the traditional sense, to the extent that traditional applications can be considered in this bizarre situation, the amicus would present a written briefing to the court for the judge to consider; and that’s it.   However, Mr. Gleeson appears to be requesting his amicus status to be elevated to the position of intervening authority where he replaces the prosecution.

A request for a briefing schedule?  The only purpose of Judge Sullivan allowing a briefing schedule would be to drag this case out as long as possible.  Perhaps that is the goal; we shall see in his decision on this ridiculous request.

“Any additional factual development” would seem to imply Mr. Gleeson is planning to spend time investigating facts that are not currently before the court; including the possibility of Mr. Gleeson interviewing witnesses.

If Judge Emett Sullivan grants anything even close to the requests within this motion he will be operating so far outside of judicial boundaries an appellate court must intervene.

Seriously, this is Lawfare madness in the extreme.

      As a practicing attorney, this Amicus request just confirms to me that the D.C. judiciary actors in the Flynn case are also connected to Deep State opposition to Trump. Never in my many decades have I ever seen an Amicus “master” suggest additional evidence gathering, briefing, oral arguments, in ANY litigated case. If a judge (Sullivan) is going to reverse course now and (1) allow Amicus input and (2) appoint an Amicus master, he is clearly outside his Article III powers and acts unconstitutionally.

      Heck, I realize that Flynn pled guilty (Under illegally prosecution tactics), but Cmon–the whole case was a sham, Sullivan knows this clearly, and he seems to be complicit to prolong the rain clouds over Flynn, and thereby, over Trump’s Administration.

      I think this is the Deep States hail mary, they hope by stretching this out past the election if Biden wins, it will go away, but if Flynn is released from his plea and found innocent, they think a lot of the Court Docs will be released seeing as the case is over. That is all I can see, because this makes zero sense. They didn’t just do this, they had this planned all along. Sulivan should ve investigated, how did the people who wrote the story in the WAPO know how this Judge was going to rule? HEADLINE “It Ain’t over until Judge Sullivan says it’s over”

      That Headline alone tells us they have been talking to Sullivan about this case and that is ILLEGAL.

      Well, he might know the one thing that can never, never, EVER be allowed to come out, which is that he was SENT IN to the Trump campaign specifically to create exactly what he created: a completely phony, manufactured, fabricated press campaign of “Russia collusion! Russia collusion!”

      And every single thing that has happened relative to Michael Flynn (which is essentially nothing except a bunch of media and courtroom drama) is exactly, precisely consistent with that. The “prosecution” IS the cover-up. That has been the CIA/IC’s playbook forever.

      This is a transparent stall by Sullivan, He knows that Flynn’s case will be tossed by the Court of Appeals. But if he can delay this, he will try.

      Sidney will file a petition for an emergency-intervention, called a Writ of Mandamus, and she will cite the DC Circuit Court of Appeals 2016 “Fokker” ruling that blasted a judge’s misuse of amicus curiae. She will also cite the recent SCOTUS 9-0 ruling against this tactic. Basically judges are not allowed to initiate calls to amicus expert witnesses to make novel arguments that the litigants failed to consider or raise. Where litigants have amicably resolved their disputes, judges are required to honor this, not artificially try to keep the case alive.

      Sid should prevail, but if not she’ll go through the regular slow process of appeal of judgment, and eventually get an exoneration for her client.

      @help4newmoms: ^^^^^^^This and particular Hussein and his gang!

      They have been spying on Flynn since 2014 and during that time he was never masked ergo no paper trail in the literally sense.

      Then there is Judge Sullivan – clearly another compromised and blackmailed individual ala Roberts from the supreme court.
      His nonchalant and dismissive action about the ‘missing’ original 302 written by Joe Pientka and Strzok before editing it was telling.
      His outburst in one hearing where he labelled Flynn a traitor was outrageous but hey – watching Maddow on TV will do that to you I guess.

      This judge should recuse himself from this case as he is not a neutral party in all of this. Attempting to drag this out is also telling as he hired a guy so anti-Trump and anti-Flynn is shameful. His op-ed was the give away.

      I trust Sidney Powell that she will most likely goes up the chain beginning with the appeals court.

      The prosecution of Mike Flynn from beginning to where we are now is one of the most shameful stain in history that will never be forgotten. Bet on it!

    From: House of Representatives Judiciary Committee (about Judge Sullivan IMO)

    May 18, 2020
    Ms. Sheryl L. Walter
    Office of the General Counsel
    Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts
    One Columbus Circle N.E.
    Washington DC, 20544

    Dear Ms. Walter:

    The Judicial Conference’s Committee on Codes of Conduct is considering a draft
    advisory opinion, No. 117, that would effectively bar federal judges from membership in the
    Federalist Society or the American Constitution Society (ACS).

    1 Consistent with the Judiciary Committee’s oversight jurisdiction pursuant to the Rules of the House of Representatives, I write to request additional information about this draft advisory opinion.
    In January of this year, a press outlet reported that the Judicial Conference’s Committee
    on Codes of Conduct had distributed a draft advisory opinion finding that a judge’s “formal
    affiliation with the ACS or the Federalist Society, whether as a member or in a leadership role, is
    inconsistent” with standards of judicial conduct.

    2 The Committee on Codes of Conductrationalized that a judge’s “official affiliation” with both organizations could lead a reasonableperson to conclude that the judge “endorses the views and particular ideological perspectivesadvocated by the organization,” and may raise questions about the judge’s “impartiality on subjects as to which the organization has taken a position.”

    3 The advisory opinion suggested thata judge’s association with these organizations may “frustrate the public’s trust in the integrityand independence of the judiciary.”

    4 In contrast, the Committee on Codes of Conduct wrote that a judge’s membership in the
    American Bar Association’s (ABA) Judicial Division “does not raise these same concerns and is
    not necessarily inconsistent” with standards of conduct.5 While the Committee on Codes of Conduct conceded that the ABA has taken positions that “could reasonably be viewed to favor
    liberal or progressive causes,” it commented that the ABA’s mission is “concerned with the
    improvement of the law in general and advocacy for the legal profession as a whole.”

              Passages in the letter caught my eye and thought it would be of some interest in scope: ie General Flynn vs (Prosecutor) Federal Judge Sullivan as it seems

              “In comparison, the Federalist Society does not directly engage in matters before the
              federal judiciary. Commentators have noted that the Federalist Society “HAS NEVER FILED AN AMICUS BRIEF TO INFLUENCE A COURT ON A LEGAL CONTROVERSAY in nearly 40 years. Likewise, the Federalist Society does not “lobby for legislation, take policy positions, or sponsor or endorse nominees and candidates for public service.”

              “Second, although the Committee on Codes of Conduct celebrates the ABA’s mission of
              “improv[ing] . . . the law in general,” it ignores the Federalist Society’s work toward that same goal. The Federalist Society describes itself as an organization “committed to the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and DUTY OF THE JUDICIARY TO SAY WHAT LAW IS, NOT WHAT IT SHOULD BE”

      Judge Sully entered a small, but very respected black law firm in 1972. The then-deceased founder had been a legend in civil rights law, laying the foundation for several anti discrimination rulings and statutes. He died in 1950, but taught Thurgood Marshall, who led the Brown v. Board of Education plaintiffs’ team.

      A number of the firm’s lawyers were graduates of prestigious colleges and law schools such as Amherst and Harvard. Sully appears to be “undereducated” in comparison. Unlike other partners who had attended prestigious college-prep Dunbar High–a black Ivy League feeder school before there was Affirmative Action–Sully attended an undistinguished technical (vocational arts) high school. He attended Howard for undergrad, and its low-ranked law school.

      He was nominated to DC’s local Superior Court, by Reagan, under Congress’s “home rule” allowance that also created a mayor and city council. For more than 160 years, D.C.’s governance was entirely exercised by Congress. Reagan accepted the City Council’s recommendation of Sully: DC was overwhelmingly a black, Democrat city, so Reagan acceded to the city leaders’ pick. The Superior Court dealt with non-federal issues, such as property and personal crimes, dui’s, real estate disputes, personal injury, medical malpractice, divorces and the like.

      Sully lacked conventional preparation for the federal bench. He had been a small-firm general practitioner. He had done a Superior Court clerkship, but no federal court clerkship. He wasn’t a law school professor. He had never worked on any “big law” cases, such as in civil rights, class-action suits against major corporations, Constitutional disputes, state-v-state disputes, big corporation v big corporation lawsuits, et al.

      Basically, other members of his firm had been elevated to the DC District Court, but they were much more highly credentialed. It is unclear what Clinton was thinking in putting Sully on the federal bench.

      He has shown himself to be either compromised or over his head. He oversaw the conviction of Senator Stevens, and reversed himself only after Stevens very narrowly lost reelection after winning 7 times straight by wide margins. This allowed Obamacare to pass. Then Sully reversed the conviction, and excoriated DOJ corruption–but he never noticed their misconduct during the original trial. It actually took Eric Holdder’s motion to dismiss retroactively to get Sully to do this.

      Today, he has witnessed egregious DOJ misconduct again–admitted by the DOJ–but is hellbent on not letting General Flynn go.

      His current stunt, “General Flynn you lied to me, under oath. You knew you were innocent, but you pleaded guilty,” is beyond ludicrous, it is grotesque. Flynn was bankrupt. The attorneys urging him to plead guilty were double-dealing, siding with DOJ against their client. His son was being threatened, as was the General, with being prosecuted for never-prosecuted arcane FARA violations. The so-called violations were in fact committed by Covington and Burling who drafted Flynn’s FARA declaration.

      Sully has apparently never heard of confessions made under extreme duress, nor authoritative demonstrations of the commonality of innocent people pleading guilty under such duress. He rose to the level of his incompetence in the local DC Court of Appeals. He never should have been promoted above that.

    2 Issues:

    1. They say the original 302 is “missing”. Has anyone asked stroke or Page what they deleted/ added? Get them on the record with specific answers for when the 302 is “found”. Has Durham interviewed them, not that I’ve read.
    How can they prosecute without giving Flynn the 302 he requested and his attorneys were refused by Van Gaggen.
    2. Does Gleeson have a high level security clearance? Can he get to see the redacted material? If not, he is in an inferior position to the DOJ and can’t have a complete opinion. A main point of contention is lack of production of a transcript to prove a lie. He has to address this point. No transcript; he has to agree with dismissal. Transcript: proves no lie.

    Plot Twist:
    If Sullivan was truly blackmailed, this would be his way out without triggering retribution. Even Gleeson won’t be able to legally support this farce.

      Intervene? Generally, when requested.

      The problem right now is that Sullivan hasn’t really ruled on anything that could be appealed. All he’s asked for at this point is different viewpoints on the legal issue of criminal contempt in a withdrawal of a guilty plea

      If he allowed Gleeson’s requests for evidentiary hearings, that might be appealable, but at this point, Sullivan has left himself an out.

      He could just take all the amicus filings, as well as Sidney’s and the DOJ’s, read them on his own sweet time, and come back and say, “OK, it appears that withdrawing a guilty pea did not constitute perjury here. The motion to withdraw is granted, the DOJ’s motion to dismiss is granted. Case closed.” Unlikely, but he’s keeping that open to head off intervention by an appellate court.

      As long as he keeps this hanging, there’s little substantive to challenge. And yes, keeping Flynn and his family twisting in the wind is sick, sick, sick. But when did the Deep State ever give a thought to what they’re doing when then set out to ruin the life of someone in the way of their path to the Brave New World and perpetual power?

    After Sullivan denies Flynn and grants Gleeson’s request, a writ of mandate can be filed with the appeals court requesting it overturn Sullivan’s decision(s). If the appeals court agrees with the lower court, well, SCOTUS here we come.

In a clean vote I think he’d get 55-60% but this election is going to be the polar opposite of clean. Our only chance of winning is exposing them in the next couple of months and the supposed “far-Right” AG Bill Barr and others are STILL covering for the slimeballs. We’re being duped. People need to wake up like RIGHT NOW or America is lost.

    CONTRARIAN VIEW HERE, SORRY

    There was at least a slim chance to “tar and feather” the DOJ and Barr with some type of political chicanery if Sullivan had just dismissed the case. However, if this continues down the road it appears to be going down, it will be a SHIT SHOW of EPIC PROPORTIONS, shining a light on just how corrupt the original prosecution was and how corrupt the DC Courts are.

    In my opinion this needs to go on as long as possible. Sydney should bring the curtain down after the Democrats have damaged themselves so irredeemably they are beyond repair. This has the potential to be better that KAVANAUGH, MUELLER’S TESTIMONY and Shifty Schiff’s SCAM IMPEACHMENT. In every case, things like this have fired up the base and sent Trump’s approval numbers skyrocketing. In my opinion, this is just the thing the nation needs, when everyone is confined to home and has the time to really observe their government and judicial system in action.

    Sorry, but with this last motion, this has become PURE ENTERTAINMENT, with the added benefit of shining a spotlight on every crevice of the Swamp that Donald Trump was elected to drain. If the Republicans ever needed a gift, to take people’s minds off the virus and the economy, THIS IS IT!!!

      With all due respect do you actually believe the dems give a shit about perception of their party. There is no way in hell a sane person would vote for them anyway but again the democratic voter is not sane. They are evil or just plain old stupid and nothing is going to change their mind going forward. If an independent hasn’t come around at this point then they will never see the light.

      I disagree with the “needs to go on as long as possible” but I admire your making lemonade out of lemons philosophy. I also think that when word gets out to the general public that there was an illegal SECRET agreement between Gen. Flynn and one of the prosecutors to keep a detail forever quiet AND knowledge that the original 302 was completely doctored AND Gen. Flynn was told “you plead guilty today or tomorrow we go after your son” AND now, after evidence shows he was coerced, they want to charge him with perjury etc. etc. etc. … the public will finally sit up and take notice. This is a good that could come out of a terrible situation like the Judge Kavanaugh debacle.

      It’s time to close the Flynn case. All the Judge and his Beach Friends are doing at this point is perpetuating the notion… nay, fantasy… that Flynn is, in fact, “guilty”, despite what the DOJ itself says. This is no 37-D Chess here… it’s 1-D Chess, and it’s called “TDS”.

      Sullivan, for his part, has openly expressed his irrational opinion of Flynn as being a “traitor”… so now he says: “Ok, that was a bit much… BUT YOU’RE STILL GUILTY, IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT!!!”.

      Sullivan is a Swamp Ass Pimple… like all the rest.

      And maybe Barr realizes this, maybe he doesn’t… but THIS is what happens when you give Beach Friends the benefit of the doubt.

      Here’s my recommendation: put one boot on their throat; and give them a sharp stomp on the face with the other. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

    • It’s not a diversion, but there is some truth to what you say. If the President had pardoned, none of this would have come out. If Sullivan had dismissed, we would have never seen a judge try to hire his own prosecutor and excuse the FBI for “My Dog Ate My Key Evidence”. As sundance named this post, it is ABSOLUTELY NUTS. Sullivan has shredded any bench cred he once had.

      Real judges are watching in horror. This won’t be allowed to go on much longer. He’s undermining the entire system. It is good to see how thoroughly rotten this whole crooked racket is. “Don’t be afraid to see what you see”.

    The more I see the more I am convinced that Sullivan and/or his staff have created this amicus ruse because they have been engaging in ex parte contacts about the case with non-parties long before now. Do I have proof? No, just a suspicion aroused by the fact that Strzok and Page discussed contacting the prior Flynn judge, Contreras, about a FISA matter. This makes me think this type of unethical conduct has been going on for a while.

  20. So try this, refuse to partake of the process. Act as if the Court has no authority due to it’s actions being non-legal…What could happen to him? Would the DOJ enforce his(Flynn’s) arrest? Then it confirms what we know as factual, Barr and team are part of the illegal process. Either way, it forces the issue and paints it as totally political. Refuse to take part in a non- Constitutional process, it’s not legal, so in my mind, it’s over…

    I think there are 3 objectives for Sullivan, Gleeson and the DS:

    1. Delay and try and get this case closed after the next election and they hope a New Democrat POTUS, then they can jail Flynn;
    2. Conduct discovery on Barr and Jensens conversations etc to remove or hobble Barr and delegitimise Jensen / Durham;
    3. Find Out as much as possible through priority 2 to find out what evidence Durham has against DS actors. They will share this information to forewarn the DS.

    I think points 2 and 3 are the key, it’s what they really want.

    Durham needs to start indicting people before 10 June. That might neuter Gleeson to an extent.

    To me, this action appears closely analogous to the behavior of the House in its impeachment effort. The elements of both efforts are transparently duplicative. To wit:

    create a false facade of acting within the law;
    make-up the rules as necessary to facilitate the desired process;
    appoint carefully selected operatives to manage the effort;
    elongate the process to the detriment of the accused and his supporters;
    embark on “fishing expeditions” to discover any and all potentially
    useful/damaging information;
    manipulate legitimate facts and fabricate others to support the objective;
    maximize use of classification and “gagging” to silence the other side during
    the proceeding;
    schedule periodic leaks that the allied msm may report as sensational
    revelations;
    manufacture a convoluted conclusion of guilt;
    and, in this case, sentence the defendant to prison with the intent of forcing a pardon from the President which will be political hay for election purposes.

    Sullivan is the DOJ clone of Schiff in this scenario and, like Schiff, he is completely in-charge and both can and will do whatever he pleases and/or his handlers demand of him to condemn the innocent and to shield the guilty.

      • I agree that Judge Sullivan has not left much to grab onto. However Flynn is entittled to an immediate ruling and Sullivan has created unreasonable delay. That alone could be sufficient to file a Petition for Writ of Mandamus to force an immediate ruling.
        Also Judge Sullivan perhaps has done enough to anticipate through a Petition for Writ of Prohibition that Judge Sullivan has no jurisdiction to proceed or that he would exceed his jurisdiction. Prohibition may yet be premature or just barely within range.

        The Super- catch all writ is Certiorari which prevents clear departures from the essential requirements of the law, blatant due process violations, or fundamental constitutional violations.Unlike direct of appeals the cert. writ can to some extent be anticipatory, but this writ is probably premature at this point

        Judge Sullivan has not completely positioned himself out of range of being clobbered by an extraordinary writ, but he has made getting one difficult at the present time. DOJ/ Sidney may have to make more than one attempt to get a writ. Flynn will suffer irreparable arm if he is forced to go through Sullivan’s process before taking a regular appeal.
