          Obammy…his buddy. Once this is over for Gen. Michael Flynn, and Sidney has every legal t crossed and I dotted, she’s then free to go after the Weisman gang, with Bill Barr’s blessing.

          Bill Barr and Mueller have been friends for over 30 years.
          Mueller has dementia. Barr knows this.

          He is pissed Weisman, Obammy and Company, used his good friend as a stooge in this, diminishing a distinguished career/legacy. (Sorta like what the adulterous Dr.Jill and DNC are doing with Joey.)

          Read Sidney’s book “License to Kill”. 86,000 Arthur Anderson employees globally lost their jobs. Innocent bankers were railroaded into jail. These people have taken evil to a higher level than even Satan could imagine.

          Getting back to Sullivan…he knows what Weisman, Obammy. Soros, and the Clintons are capable of. And he would rather play the fool behind the bench, vs. the criminal before the bench.

          Today will be his final act. He knows this. Will he pull a Jeffrey Epstein? Or become another Seth Rich? He certainly doesn’t want to end up in Benghazi or Gitmo.

    I do not expect Sullivan to dismiss Flynn’s case today, tomorrow or any time soon. This judge is a celebrity now and is emboldened by a leftist DC Circuit Court who has Sullivan’s back. It’s show time!

    Yesterday, the Left ran interference for Biden and Sullivan with The NY Times Trump income taxes hit piece. It was designed to provide Wallace with attack questions and make Biden appear better by taking the spotlight off him.

    In a directed way, the Times story helps Sullivan along with Gleeson delay and drag the Flynn hearings out. The ‘Trump Tax Scandal’ is new news; Flynn hearing not so much, a tired story for now…until Sullivan based on Gleeson’s arguments, convicts and sentences Flynn.

    I have a question. They released Pete and Lisa texts last week.

    Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 248-5 Filed 09/24/20 Page 9 of 25

    On this page, noted happening around Jan 24/17. The two were discussing prepping for a meeting.

    Lisa writes – ‘Should I call (REDACTED) re HER concerns? I do this all the time’
    Peter responds – ‘She’s in the meeting with me. I will pull her out with me at 11:30 and we’ll cal’
    Lisa responds – ‘No worries. (REDACTED) called, I’m sure it’s the same thing’
    Peter responds – ‘I don’t think the concern is you being there. The concern is you serving as a witness.’
    Lisa responds – ‘I get it. We’re just making this more complicated than it needs to be. I don’t really care if it’s you or me or whomever. I just happen to sit up here a lot.’
    Peter responds – “You should def sit in! Just if the desire is to have a witness, then we should consider an additional person. At least that’s what understood from (REDACTED) ly. Agree we’re over thinking this. More importantly, I’m starving. Where are we going?”
    Lisa responds – “His main interest was to take notes so I could help him remember everything he needed to write down afterwards. I think it’s fine as it is.
    Peter responds – “Fine with me”

    Can anyone surmise who the three redactions are? The first is a female. The second, don’t know. The third, is someone that suggested to have a witness present.

    I stumbled across this Suspicious Sullivan opinion while doing my own personal research on his prior decisions.

    Click to access saena.pdf

    Judge Sullivan’s affinity for Judge Gleeson has a history. As does his appointment of amicus, here in the DPA (deferred prosecution agreement) context. 140 F. Supp. 3d 11 (D.D.C. 2015). But the cases Sullivan cited in his 2015 decision were both later reversed (HBSC – a Gleeson reversal; Fokker – reversing Judge Leon).

    The Saena case led me to another link. I think this author pegged what Sullivan will do correctly back in May, i.e., write a long opinion chiding Barr/Flynn but granting the motion (reluctantly). The article is a quick read.

By taking away Flynn’s security clearance, for no reason, they could hinder the incoming President. These political hacks (agents) were trying to make a case to firewall Gen. Flynn even as they knew that there was no credible reason to think he was a Russian agent, they were just trying to cripple the Trump Transition team by destroying Gen Flynn

    The Flynn case till after the election and the left can “install” a new President?
    Pay to play at work before our very eyes.

      Sullivan’s too old. Biden would go for young lefties, just like Trump has gone for young conservative. Both sides want someone on the court for decades. Sullivan is also too old to go up to the DC Circuit for the same reason.

    Sulivan will deny the motions and sentence Flynn just to give the Dems a campaign talking point.

    Sullivan knows he’ll be reversed on appeal, possibly by the DC Circuit, if not SCOTUS. (If it goes to a three-judge panel first, it likely would be the same panel). He doesn’t care. He’s been giving his marching orders from Lawfare, and is carrying them out.

    Once he rules, Flynn has an appeal as of right, so there would be no speedy resolution, but just the normal timeline for a federal appeal. Sullivan knows this, too.

    Sidney used her one mandamus card already, so has to go the regular appellate route. This would drag it out into a possible Biden adminsitration, which would reverse the DOJ position and oppose Sidney on appeal. This might lead Trump to pardon Flynn just before leaving office.

    If Trump wins, Sullivan knows he’ll be reversed eventually, but will be smugly satisfied that he ruined Flynn’s life, finances and career, and that will get Sullivan invited to all the right DC cocktail parties.

    It’s all been gamed out. Fight on, Sidney, but you know what you’re up against.

    The stresses placed upon this man and his family is beyond comprehension and many people need to be held accountable for it.
    Since Osama took office he was not kidding when he said the word “Transformation” because this country has become unrecognizable and has transformed into a nightmare at every corner of the government.

      Hopefully, this reference is a sign to exonerate Flynn and grant him his freedom.

      But, the Left is secular and anti-Christian. They are evil and full of hate. Flynn is a gladiator, like Spartacus, and today he enters the Roman coliseum.

    In a strange sort of way it seems that the more Sullivan drags this out, the more it forces Barr to shine sunlight on the corrupt process. Had Sullivan dropped the case when the DOJ wanted to, they would not have released some of the info that they have released in the interim.

    If Judge Emmet Sullivan orders the DoJ to continue the prosecution of Michael Flynn, which appears likely, and the DoJ refuses, will the judge appoint his own prosecutor? We may find out today…

      Sullivan is oblivious to the damage being done to the rule of law. But then many in the obama administration, the FBI, and the DOJ were / are as well. They have held out this long and the election is 5 weeks away. Sullivan will find some way to defer a decision until we see what happens in November. He has also been instructed not to ‘concede’ under any circumstances.

        For those in the Obama administration, the law was something to be manipulated and twisted to fit their agenda or ignored completely when it couldn’t be manipulated. The warped, twisted minds who set this up have been laughing for 3 years. To date, they have gotten away with it all. If they succeed in railroading Flynn and cheating Trump of the election, this country becomes Hell on Earth and the Socialist devils will all be in charge.

    I wish Powell could ask Sullivan how he became compromised without getting a contempt citation and delaying this further.

    I expect Sullivan to attempt this ploy to delay finality. It is the only legitimate tool he could possibly use.

      I really suspect that Sullivan is so annoyed by and is enraged by Sidney Powell comments and her appearances on Lou Dobbs that he is doing what he done to attack her. I swear he is a biased, vindictive, petty, little man.

    I assume Sullivan will do something like this:

    Schedule preliminary hearing for pre-sentencing hearing on December 4th.
    Schedule pre-sentencing hearing for January 11.
    Schedule sentencing hearing for February 26th.

    Or similar. Drag this out another six months. What would the appeals court do? What would it do if Sullivan simply said, “Okay, I’m scheduling the next hearing for August 19th, 2021. This will be a pre-sentencing hearing, with sentencing on March 3rd, 2022”?

      That might actually give Sidney another mandamus card. Such a scheduling would arguably be a denial of due process (yes, I know Flynn’s already been denied that more than once).

      Sullivan would have to explain why a judge with so many years on the bench would have to take so much time to sentence on a guilt plea.

    I don’t believe Sullivan is this ideological. He must be under a threat that he views as truly imminent- and literally deadly-if he disobeys his instructions.

      He is a puppet of Lawfare, which probably has told him, “Your mission, should you decided to accept it…” is part of the Great War for the Greater Good. He is thrilled to be (as he sees it), such an important player in a moment of National Crisis.

      He’s supposedly stupd (as well as lazy), and believes this kind of crap.

    The fatal flaw with the dismissal is that Barr wants to dismiss using evidence of prosecutorial misconduct but will not claim prosecutorial misconduct. All this has been facilitated by Barr’s half-measures. He should have admitted the whole prosecution was corrupt. Instead, this drags on.

    Not trying to be negative but I have prepared myself not to expect this to end favorably, nothing has happened in fours years that has been in our favor.
    Sullivan has no reason to do anything favorable. By acting as he as he has ensures that he himself will be treated favorably, and after all isn’t that what most people do ultimately, look out for themselves.
    It’s this kind of selfishness that has got us where we are today. Why the radical left communist depend on this personal selfishness .
