A federal judge has thrown a huge barrier in front of the judiciary when former National Security Adviser Michael Plin dropped his lawsuit.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmett Sullivan Announced in a row On Wednesday, he said he would appoint a former federal judge to present arguments against the government’s attempt to dismiss the Flynn case.
That retired Judge, John Gleeson, is instructed to instruct, “Why not insult Mr. Flynn for the crime,” according to the order.
Gleeson has already made his point about the case, raising questions about how Attorney General William Barr decided to back the case. Published by the Washington Post Op-Ed Monday.
“There is usually nothing in the department’s attempt to dismiss Flynn’s case. The record reveals an improper political influence, ”Gleeson wrote.
Although Flynn has already admitted that he lied to the FBI, he criticized the judiciary for saying it could not prove its case.
The Department had previously justified abandoning the case by arguing in an FBI interview with Flynn in 2017 that “it was not found, justified by the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that “no formal investigation was conducted on the basis.”
With ongoing speculation about whether President Donald Trump will simply pardon Flynn, the lawsuit seems to continue for months now.
Trump previously declined to discuss this option on Wednesday, referring only to Flynn as “a better, better man.”
