Legal Experts Slam Flynn Judge After ‘Outrageous’ Maneuver Keeps General in Limbo

Is the Deep State just trying to get one last dig in to Flynn before they have to let him off the hook?

For General Michael Flynn, it appeared last week that his legal troubles were coming to a close, but apparently the judge in his case has another idea altogether.

Flynn had been charged with lying to the FBI during the RussiaGate probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller.  Several days ago, newly-declassified notes, handwritten by Flynn’s interviewing agents, seemed to indicate that the Bureau was considering tricking Flynn into lying in order to charge him.

This revelation saw the DOJ spring into action, dropping the charges and seemingly setting Flynn free.

Now, Judge Emmet Sullivan is allowing the process to linger, and legal experts are shocked.

Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman thought he had “seen everything” over the course of his career until a federal judge opened the door Tuesday for legal experts and other outside parties to oppose the Justice Department’s motion to drop the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Tolman said he believed Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision was “outrageous” and that the Washington D.C. judge had turned himself into an “activist,” willing to set aside rules, ethics, and precedent in favor of partisanship.

Although Sullivan did not directly address the Justice Department’s motion to drop the charge against Flynn, in his order Sullivan announced he would set a schedule for outside parties to present arguments about the government’s request to dismiss the case.

Then came Tolman’s sternest response:

“And let’s face it, if it looks like this is what’s going on, there is strategy then that’s at the heart of what this judge is trying to accomplish. And, that strategy is offensive to anyone who practices,” he stated. “It’s the United States against Michael Flynn. And, when the United States says we’re no longer going to pursue it because we don’t have the evidence, then the audacity of somebody outside of that coming in who has no authority is outrageous.”

Flynn is already being perceived as a victim of the Deep State, and this latest piece of the puzzle seems to fit that description perfectly.
