Then White House Chief of Staff Michael Flynn was found guilty by another confused judge, Emmet Sullivan.
General Flynn was never told he was part of an FBI operation to gather evidence on him, never advised of his rights or received due process as required under the United States Constitution.
None the less he found it his duty to fall on his sword to protect the president from those attacking him from the left.
It might be politically risky but Trump could pardon General Flynn.
The FBI agenda was to get Flynn, there forcing President Trump to fire him as his chief of staff.
Judge Emmet Sullivan was at the heart of Michael Flynn’s dramatic sentencing hearing Tuesday, once again delaying it.
Sullivan tore into Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, telling him he couldn’t hide his “disgust” or “disdain.”
“Arguably, you sold your country out,” Sullivan told Flynn.
The 71-year-old judge also questioned whether Flynn committed treason before he walked back those comments.
He said he wasn’t suggesting Flynn did, in fact, commit treason but asked prosecutors about the potential crime because he was “just curious.”
“After looking at the definition of treason, we have no reason to believe he committed treason,” prosecutors said.
This was one of the “Get Trump Hatchet Job’s and certainly requires a complete view from an honest Attorney General.
He was involved in another Trump-related lawsuit.
Earlier this year, Sullivan gave an assist to Democrats suing Trump over claims he violated the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments provision banning the acceptance of gifts and foreign domestic interests through his hotel business and other properties.
Judge Emmet Sullivan was appointed to the bench by President George H.W. Bush, a “New World Order guy after being director of the FBI.
Judge Emmett Sullivan rejected Flynn’s attempts, although the former adviser has continued to proclaim his innocence.

Topline: The New York Times reported Friday that attorney general Bill Barr assigned an outside prosecutor to review former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s criminal case, at a time when Barr faces intense criticism for undermining the Department of Justice professional staff.
- According to the Times, Barr has assigned additional outside prosecutors to review other politically sensitive cases, but it’s unclear which those cases are.
- These kinds of case reviews are rare, according to the Times, which also reported, citing anonymous sources, that the prosecutors are scrutinizing DOJ actions, “including investigative steps, prosecutorial actions and why they took them.”
- Flynn, President Trump’s former national security advisor, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to charges of lying to the FBI, but has yet to be sentenced.
- Flynn has tried to withdraw his guilty plea, and his lawyers have made claims of prosecutorial misconduct that were rejected by a judge.
- Barr and deputy attorney general Jeffrey A. Rosen on Tuesday overruled the sentencing recommendation of seven to nine years of prison for Roger Stone, another convicted Trump associate, causing all four federal prosecutors on the case to resign in protest.
- Barr’s overrule came just hours after President Trump tweeted that it was a “horrible and unfair situation,” raising concerns that the DOJ was taking its cues from the president.
