Flynn Judge Grants Amicus Request for Oral Arguments – Defense Attorney Sidney Powell Reacts…

It looks like Sidney Powell has angered Emett Sullivan as the DC judge has now granted all of the requests by prosecuting amicus John Gleeson.

In an order today Judge Sullivan granted Gleeson with the requested schedule to include a July 10th briefing deadline and oral arguments scheduled for July 16th.

Just as the news broke Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell appeared on Lou Dobbs to react.

    President Trump should fire Barr and nominate Sidney Powell for AG. With her and Ratcliffe at the top, they could really do justice to the corruptocrats.

        Does Sydney Powell not have ANY clout at all? Jeanine Pirro outlined the corruption of Sullivan’s attempt, so who could upend Sullivan’s cart? Surely Sydney has recourse! Anyone can sue a Doctor for malpractice. Is the same not true for a Judge?

          No, you can not sue a Judge for Judging even badly. The remedy is impeachment, but that has to go trough the US House. So that will not happen anytime soon.

          There is a Federal Statue that requires public officials State and Federal to have sort of provide good service. I am not sure if Judges are exempt; but the FBI and DOJ need to do that anyways. As unfortunately the U.S. does not have private prosecution, it will not happen. I always wanted private prosecution, as it would be nice hobby for me in my retirement, many countries have; there are restrictions but it seems to work in some countries.

          Sydney Powell cut her bone on the Enron case down in Texas many years ago. Some of those she unmasked are probably relatives of the new “deep state critters” who are working to bring Trump down. I believe they are working with the Communist Chinese. We are all going to be in deep do if Sydney isn’t successful. She has a job to do and believe me, not only is Flynn in good hands, she is working for the America we all love and want to see operating under the Constitution as written.

      Why fire Barr?

      It is BECAUSE of Barr’s decision to let the Mueller prosecutors make fools of themselves that we even SEE this level of corruption on display. And it is not just WE who are seeing it, but even those not versed in this issue can see what is happening.

      If Barr had stopped the prosecution, none of this would be happening in front of us, where it can be disinfected. BUT IF REGULAR FOLKS DON’T KNOW THE PROBLEM, THEY CAN’T SUPPORT THE SOLUTION!

      Everyone here wants JUSTICE NOW!

      But if the rest of the country doesn’t see what’s happening, then they won’t understand the “fight” that will take place in the press and on the news nightly.

      This is taking longer than you want so the rest of our friends and families can at least be aware of the playing field, before we start accusing the other side of cheating.

      They are ALL shooting themselves in the foot.

      Do you know the brilliance of declaring that Obama and Biden were off limits? Initially a lot of us got pissed, but NOW, from Comey’s perspective, it’s all on him! His shoulders aren’t big enough for this kind of load. He’ll start squealing if he thinks he’s gonna be the fall guy. Same with Brennan, same with Clapper. They have no integrity.

      If they think Biden and Obama are off the market, they will not allow themselves to be made the fall people. They will MAKE SURE that Obama and Biden are included. But see, it will come from THEM, not from PDJT and company. So no complaints.

      I’m telling you…brilliant.

    This is the D.C. District court Sullivan sits on.
    Note — it has both FISA Court judges (Collyer & Boasberg), and Gen. Flynn’s first judge (Contreras), who was removed from the case due to conflicts of interest (a personal relationship with Strzok, of all people).

      In a gallant effort to free General Flynn, Sidney Powell finds herself in an epic clash against both the hero and the villain of her “License to Lie.”

      John (Igor) Gleeson, associate, advisor and surrogate? for the morbid Dr. Frankenstein–Andrew Weissmann–will sew back together the ‘get Flynn get Trump’ monster. The evil judge Sullivan opened his courtroom to stage the grotesque operation.

The Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, which will be hearing Flynn’s writ of mandamus is a higher court and is not composed of the 18 judges that you guys here keep mentioning need to be recused, such as Amy Jackson, Sullivan, Contreras, etc. Those 18 judges are with the District Court for D.C. and don’t sit in the Court of Appeals.

          There are 17 judges currently on the Court of Appeals: J. Srinivasan, Henderson, Rogers, Tatel, Garland, Griffith, Millett, Pillard, Wilkins, Katsas, Rao, Edwards, Silberman, Williams, Ginsburg, Sentelle, and Randolph. https://www.cadc.uscourts.gov/internet/home.nsf/Content/Judges

Just one extremely obvious over the top move that does not require a thorough understanding of the intricacies and convolutions of what was done on its face is mind boggling. The method by which Roger Stone was taken into custody: Early morning raid with swat teams and a CNN truck that happened to be nearby.?? Who with two brain cells to put together does not think to themselves how can this be?. Where is the appropriate outrage? Are they all effing sociopaths? No one has a smidgen of a conscience?

          I believe Timmy is more than aware. I believe he is saying that the deep state will force a pardon. Perhaps, a more likely alternative is that the resistance via Sullivan is pushing for this legal battle to go on until the election for the same reason the Mueller team continued until after the election. To maintain the air of guilt around Flynn and use it as further propaganda in the election cycle. Maintaining the Russian collusion hoax until the 2018 election certainly worked for them- that is how we got the Dem house. I would not be surprised if this is the same play.

          • The “resistance” of the Deep State know they have lost the ability to force Pres. Trump out of Office by the Russia collusion hoax so they are going to convict and sentence Gen. Flynn only because they can. They will stick it in our eye knowing 40% of the country will support them and they will get away with it. I am not a black piller. We have to keep on fighting even if all we do is leave a foul taste in the resistance mouth every time they try to crush us. After all that is how the Christians defeated Roman paganism.

            Look at it this way, Trump’s only fault now is that they call him fat. The Republicans lost the House because Republicans were sure Mueller would give the Democrats just enough to force Pres. Trump out of Office and Ryan Paul told the party to take a dive in hope they would go back to being a Bush-Romney Party. They were sure the Deplorables would take the black pill and vanish. Well we prayed and believed. Flynn may not go to prison but he will always be scared, just as Christ is always scared. A sign of what sinful men will do to innocence.

    There is something dramatic missing in this Flynn saga …not even Sundance has really touched on it as yet …not commented here lately but read every Sundance post and most of the comments daily …but this has been bugging me of late so I broke down and opened WP to ask a single question …WHY?

    WHY FLYNN? WHY IS THE DEEP STATE SO INVESTED IN KEEPING ONE MAN OUT OF THE DC LOOP THAT THEY ARE NOW PUTTING THE HOLY GRAIL AT RISK …THE OBAMESSIAH?

    Sundance has shown us the trees …good Lord he has a dozen different sawmills running …but I’ve not seen the forest as yet. These guys are not stupid …dumb, yes …arrogant, yes …but not stupid …and yet they appear to be digging themselves an ever deepening hole just to keep Flynn out of the halls of power in DC. Today they apparently went all in on a blatantly suicidal effort to keep Flynn ineligible to ever again hold a national security post under Trump …they are betting everything on forcing Trump to pardon Flynn, making him ineligible for an SCI clearance and thus access to whatever it is they are really hiding.

    Once upon a time, Flynn, a lifelong Democrat and now a 3-star General, was the Obama appointed DIA chief …he apparently refused to follow the Russia threat narrative and went gangbusters on identifying China as the only real threat to our national security …an existential one according to him …and that is the reason given for Obama firing him …or so we are told.

    But dear Lord look at what has gone down since! There has to be more …much more …something existentially threatening to the deep state to generate all the drama around this single figure …why would they care so much about keeping him on the outside that they are now risking their entire game …the holy grail himself …just to keep Flynn in a straight jacket. WHY? Why not just Arkancide him? Why so much effort to discredit him rather than martyr him?

    What the heck is going on behind the trees that scares them so much? It has to be something we’ve not caught more than a whiff of as yet …Flynn himself may not be aware …but has the means, contacts, and sources to find if he ever gets the reins back …and it scares the bejesus out of them. Call me a conspiracy theorist …but nothing else makes sense of the desperate acts they have and are taking to keep this single man alive but out of power. imnsho of course.

    • Flynn was targeted even before Donald Trump. Before the 2016 election, he wrote an Op-Ed for Fox explaining how Hillary and Obama were violating anti-terrorism laws by running weapons to ISIL. I believe Ambassador Stephens was killed with weapons provided by Hillary. And that Obama was trying to form his own Lawrence-of-Arabia-army to establish a Muslim Brotherhood Caliphate from Tehran to Tripoli.

      As an insider, Gen. Flynn exposed the traitors. Simply not done.

Neither of those activities are illegal or even immoral. In fact, foreign policy observers can be left to conclude that Gen. Flynn was merely acting in America’s best interests.
        In order to come to the conclusion that Flynn apparently misled the FBI, the Obama intelligence community wiretapped Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. Those conversations were then leaked to the press by elements of the intelligence community, in gross violation of federal law. The FBI review found no evidence of wrongdoing by Gen. Flynn, except for the charge of lying to the FBI, a charge that is now reportedly being disputed by the agents who interviewed him.
        President Trump’s initial pick for national security adviser had long been skeptical of the unchecked power of the U.S. intelligence community. Flynn wanted to prioritize several foreign policy agenda items, such as ending the Iran deal, moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

        To give this some context, former President Obama had embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, allegedly seeding members and/or sympathizers of the radical Islamist group into our government.

        There was one more priority item for Flynn. Through his experience as a general in foreign war zones, he found that there were several fractures in the intelligence cycle, which harmed U.S. troops’ ability to succeed on the battlefield. As national security adviser, Flynn intended to conduct an audit on the intelligence community as a whole. A full audit of the U.S. intelligence community’s activities has not been completed since 1975, following the Nixon administration’s Watergate scandal.
        While serving in the Obama administration, Flynn’s earlier attempts at intelligence reform infuriated the upper echelons of the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency. Flynn’s enemies list continued to grow when, as Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) director, he testified in front of the Congress and challenged the Obama White House narrative that al Qaeda had been “decimated.” The Obama administration forced him into early retirement shortly thereafter.
        It became quite clear that the incoming national security adviser posed a direct challenge to the fourth branch of government — the unaccountable Washington bureaucrat class, including the intelligence community, which some have come to refer to as the “deep state.”
        Fearing Flynn, as National Security Advisor, would have the ability to undo eight years of Obama foreign and domestic policy and defense structure, Obama loyalists seated deeply within the government needed to publicly discredit and silence Flynn to protect the legacy of the Obama administration.  
        The FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller did exactly that by threatening him, and his son, with long prison terms unless he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

        Remember: 
        The FBI review found no evidence of wrongdoing by Gen. Flynn, except for the charge of lying to the FBI, a charge that is now reportedly being disputed by the agents who interviewed him.
        Devin Nunes: Well, we knew from early on in 2017 that Michael Flynn did not lie to the FBI.  We actually put that in our report that didn’t come out until 2018 after Flynn had already plead.
        There were several of us as witnesses.  We also told the highest levels of DOJ that we had been briefed by the FBI that Flynn didn’t lie to the FBI.
        Laura Ingraham: Didn’t Peter Strzok come out from that meeting with Flynn and he didn’t think he lied?
        Devin Nunes: Well, interesting that you say that.  There’s missing documentation that we never received…Remember, we put this in our report in 2018 and for some reason it was redacted. In return for a guilty plea, they would recommend a sentence with little or no jail time.  And, they would abandon all charges against Flynn’s son. They wanted his scalp and his silence.  That’s all.

        Those plans were turned asunder as of last night when Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, withdrew his guilty plea as the law required of her.
        The government’s attempt to withdraw its prior motion and change its position is a breach of the plea agreement – a contract.  Pursuant to Puckett v. Untied States, 556 U.S. 129 (2009), Mr. Flynn’s counsel must move to withdraw the plea to protect his constitutional rights.  When the government breaches its agreement with a defendant, counsel is obligated to seek appropriate remedy – here, withdrawal of his plea.
        A trial in which former Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. General Michael Flynn is the prime witness and gets to spill his guts, just might be the worst nightmare of corrupt Obama administration conspirators.

        We always wondered why U.S. Attorney General William Barr allowed corrupt prosecutor Brandon Van Grack to renege on the plea deal.  Now we wonder if Barr invited Van Grack to walk himself into a trap.”

      Why Flynn is a good question. Federal district court judges along with court of appeal judges have been making ridiculous rulings with respect to Trump initiatives since he took office. Most of those ridiculous ruling were clearly unsound and have been corrected upon appeal. The deep state judges who were reversed probably consider it a badge of honor. Their absurd rulings were enabled by the corrupt news / manipulation providers who gave them cover and support.
      Sullivan’s minute order appointing Gleeson and his order today lack both procedural and substantive law basis. This seems to be part of a larger hidden agenda. Is the goal to delay resolution of the motion to dismiss until next year in the hope that Trump and whatever part of the DOJ that supports him is gone? Do they hope to provoke a Trump pardon which will give cause for more leftist wailing and gnashing of teeth along with a pretext for impeachment? Does the pending criminal action somehow ‘muzzle’ Flynn?
      How do they expect the DC Court of Appeals to make any plausible response which does not grant the relief Flynn request? A turd can neither be polished nor picked up from the clean end.

  20. I’ll ask again; if a judge can hire his own prosecutor, why can’t a prosecutor hire his own judge? That is logic of Sullivan’s jurisprudence. As is this: “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards!”–The Queen of Hearts. Or perhaps this: “What is law? Two lines of writing above my signature.”–Saddam Hussein

    This is a result of Barr’s timidity, He should have brought charges against his own dirty cops and prosecutors and had Chris Wray fired.

    The DOJ will have to join Sidney’s motion or lose the power to dismiss cases.

    One can’t help but recall the hollow boast of the Chief Justice: “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

    No, what we have is crooked Swamp Judge, taking up where the corrupt DOJ and a criminal FBI left off, railroading an innocent man in a judicial free-for-all. I suppose it is a mark off how far this country has come in racial equality that a black federal judge is lynching a white military hero to hide the crimes of a seditious black president. Progress!

      • True, but after a judge acquits a defendant, the prosecutor doesn’t get at hire his own judge and try again.

        The larger point is that we have legislators, police , D.A.s, judges, juries, defense lawyers, etc, to devolve and decentralize power. That’s why we don’t have judge-prosecutors or police-juries.

Prohibition is particularly anticipatory in nature. An applicant must move BEFORE a judge asserts jurisdiction.

              • I have reviewed my post. It would only be good enough as a shorthand note to another lawyer who was up to speed on the case. The post fails to communicate with its intended audience. I apologize.

                I still haven’t seen anything from the AG. The AG needs to help Sidney, not only to bring in the power and prestige of its office to bear, but to plug any holes in her submission. The AG may want to open new fronts. Finally, the AG’s presence may be enough to establish a prima facie case, and get a show cause order. In the old days a show cause was called a Rule Nisi or an Alternate Writ of Mandamus. If this point is reached, Sullivan must answer. That would be a partial victory.
                Sidney brought the most applicable Writ, Mandamous. They are hard to get. The applicant has to fit the exact pigeonhole.
                In reality a fact pattern may indicate more than one writ and the writs themselves may overlap.
                The three most applicable writs to Flynn’s case, Mandamus, Prohibition and Certiorari are of common law origin. They are called Extraordinary Writs or “The Ancient Writs” . Mandamus requires the judge to perform a ministerial act where he has no discretion but to perform that act.
                Prohibition acts to prevent a judge from exceeding his jurisdiction. That is the writ Mark Levin advocated using. One of the advantages for using this writ is that a case must be a little unripe to begin with to get the writ. The writ of prohibition must be brought before the court attempts to exercise jurisdiction. The third writ common law certiorari evolved into the modern appellate systems of appeals. There are many kind of statutory certiorari.
                The common law writ of certiorari remains a writ logged in an appellate courts of original jurisdiction. This writ is the general catchall writ were prohibition and mandamus do not technically apply. Cert. addresses clear departures form the essential requirements of the law, flagrant unconstitutionality, et ct.
                Usually, only the SCt. will grant this writ.
                The modern trend is for the Sct. is to collapse all three writs into one and designate it as Certiorari .
                So imagine this: General Powell on the right flank heading up the Mandamus
                Division; General Levine on the other flank arguing prohibition. And, Bagpipes Barr marching in late through the center of the line with the Certioari Flag.
                The three writs argued in the alternative can complement each other, sometimes like tying three batteries together, as in the film Apollo 13.

                Sidney filed this writ figuring she could still gain some tactical advantage in the case even if she loses this battle. She will even if she doesn’t get a show cause and force Sullivan to answer. Even the MSM is impressed with Sidney’s aggressiveness.
                Sidney can use this writ to educate the appellate court (and S.Ct.) if she has to go back on appeal with an appellate. She was proactive and attempted to prevent harm which will help her on her civil suit.
                I think even the liberal judges on the DC Circuit Court and Supreme Court.

                  Not being a lawyer, I have felt that part of that “ripening” includes shedding enough sunlight and education of the public so that, even though justice is supposed to be blind, any prosecutors, defendants, legislator/investigators, and judges feel the heat of Sunlight on their action.

    I agree with Lemmus1 there’s no way it would be such blatant judicial abuse unless Flynn can easily connect the dots for the average Joe that doesn’t dissect things like this site does.
    If Flynn wants to stay out of prison he may have initially agreed not to disclose certain information.
    Who knows, but Obama judged Hillary as reckless and Obama’s current spouting off seems a bit reckless and confrontational towards Trump. 😉
    I have to say I truly enjoy seeing proof that Trump has rattled Obama, it’s been a pleasure watching.
    Obama has been flying all over the world assuring multiple world leaders Trump will be gone and is powerless anyway.
    Meanwhile Trump is in the situation room offing Obama’s terrorists buddies, cutting off funding to Iran, and sticking it to Obama’s friend in China. 😏😉
    All this while being accused of being a Russian spy, being impeached for having a conversation with the new Ukraine leader and currently avoiding being killed by a virus that we likely helped Wuhan design. Of course all of this was approved by deep state traitors.
    I wish they’d all pick a country to rule as their own and leave Trump and this country to once again thrive.
    One can only imagine what could be achieved if they would let Trump do his job and let everyone coexist.
    Sorry so long and corny but the dems DS are throwing everything at winning this election. What’s next if Trump wins? Start threatening senators lives if they don’t vote to impeach? Who knows

    The persecution of Gen. Flynn is beginning to take on some aspects of The Dreyfus Affair, the political-military-judicial scandal that divided and embittered French politics for a generation between the mid-1890s and WWI, now with Judge Sullivan’s Courtroom set to serve as a latter-day Devil’s Island.
    Details of The Dreyfus Affair are available on Wikipedia. In summary, Capt. Dreyfus was unjustly accused and convicted of treason by elements of a corrupt military-political establishment to cover-up their own incompetence and misdeeds. He was imprisoned on Devil’s Island. Evidence pointing to Dreyfus’ innocence (famously including Emil Zola’s open letter J’Accuse!) pressured the government to re-open the case and eventually pardon Capt. Dreyfus, who went on to serve honorably in WWI. History has not been kind to the persecutors of Capt. Dreyfus, while his defenders, Zola and others, are honored to this day.
