If the true administration of justice was to prevail in this case, the judge should simply accept the unopposed motion and this would be the end of the malicious prosecution.  However, this case has so many precedents anything is possible.

    Sullivan’s dismissive attitude toward Powell reeked of misogyny. I did not hear him speak to male attorneys with such a tone.

    I am no lawyer or have any legal experience, but how is this judge getting away with all this mess? His hostility is very evident. His twisting of every precedent is very evident. Who is in charge of this man? Roberts?

    Sullivan’s behavior is beyond bizarre it seems. Sidney can hold her own, but if this man is allowed to go off rogue on how a judge is supposed to conduct a case like this, how do you fight that?

    Did the DOJ hotshot get to say anything? Did he bring some more information to the table? Did he again ask that the case be closed? Haven’t been able to listen, but following along here on CTH.

      It’s to make news. Bad faith all around.
      The news is that judge questions Flynn’s lawer ethics, contact with Trump, and contact with Trump’s toadie, Barr.

      I would not be surprised if Sullivan doesn’t call for both POTUS and Barr to sit for depositions on the matter. It’s not only a perjury trap, it’s another impeachment trap based on obstruction of justice. Remember, our opposition knows no boundaries….not even the U.S. Constitution deters them.

        Yes … This could be what Sullivan’s game is all about. He is giving the Democrats in the House ammunition to impeach both AG Barr and President Trump on charges of obstruction of justice in the Flynn case.

        This brings up another question.

        What will Joe Biden be saying in tonight’s debate about the Democrat’s previous attempt at the impeachment and removal of Donald Trump? Will Biden be making further accusations which justify another attempt at impeachment and removal?

    Sullivan wants to know, if court denies government motion to dismiss, what happens next?
    Should Flynn be allowed to withdraw his plea based on ineffective assistance of counsel.
    Government says motion to dismiss guilty plea are to be liberally granted. Governmnet knows of no case wehre a defendnat who has moved to dismiss was sentenced without a trial. Also says that Flynn’s plea is alleged to have been made under duress. See notes filed on this case record. It is concerning that there are deals between lawyers not disclosed to the court. Sullivan would have to revisit that if he does not grant the motion to dismiss.
    Government says there is no prosecutor for this case, if the motion to dismiss is not granted. There are zero cases wehre private prosecutors were allowed.

    The judge is just pissed that the original plan did not work. Had Covington stayed involved, they would have “managed” Flynn’s prosecution the “right way” (wink, wink) and he’d have been in prison for over a year now. Sidney had the audacity to actually defend her client.

    I have to agree that Justice and the Rule of Law appear to be dead in today’s America.

    Dumb quesiton. Gove’t point out, those hypotheical cases aren’t affect by prejudice of not in this case – separate charges (FARA violations).
    Government points out some hinky stuff in FARA (Covington conflict). Never admitted intent, knowing false filing. Co-defendeant was not convicted on account of this fatal flaw, after jury verdict.

    This whole thing is a charade. They are going to get Flynn one way or another. Even if they have to invent a method to do it since Sullivan is essentially claiming that since there is no precedent for this particular set of circumstances, it is his prerogative to operate in any manner he himself sees fit.

      There is no argument that the Gov can make, no documents that they can file, that will move Sullivan from his course.

      There are those who believe that Sullivan is being blackmailed on some level and that explains his extreme behavior. If that is true, then the only thing that can change this is for that to be revealed.

    Kohl is brilliant. His objective is different than Sidney’s. Hers is to get this dismissed. His is to appeal to Sullivan to do the right thing. Total difference in tone. Kohl’s role is not to defend Flynn, lest he sound like he is collaborating with Sidney. It’s an awful delicate line to tread. Not sure that Mooppan is achieving this. He’s slightly more emotionally invested in tone.

    Kohl is walking Sullivan through how they discovered that these charges should be dismissed. He’s doing a good job of what he has to do, whether it impacts the outcome or not. He’s preserving the integrity of (Barr’s) DOJ decision to withdraw, impartially.

    Now he is asking about “materiality” and takes another shot at Sidney for not moving to reconsider his prior decision on materiality. Cole now explains and goes back to the initial statement of offense. Notes that Suspicious Sullivan asked questions that “led to the unraveling” of this case. Cole notes that Crossfire Hurricane was not impacted by what Flynn said. Says DOJ can no longer prove materiality based upon what they know now — the truth. The truth is at odds with the Statement of Offense.

      Yup. Judge Sullivan is exploiting the timidity inherent in AG Barr’s decision to protect institutions rather than see justice done by prosecuting Mueller’s crew.
