    "Judge Emmett Sullivan Hires High-Powered DC Attorney to Fight Flynn Mandamus Case in Appeals Court

    By Kristinn Taylor
    Published May 23, 2020 at 5:02pm


    D.C. federal Judge Emmett Sullivan has hired Beth Wilkinson, a high-powered attorney from the D.C. establishment, to represent him in the Court of Appeals case seeking a writ of mandamus filed by Sidney Powell, the attorney for former Trump National Security Advisor Lt. Gen Michael Flynn (Army Ret.). Powell is seeking to have the appeals court block Sullivan’s efforts to prolong the Flynn case in the face of a motion by the Justice Department to dismiss the with prejudice and to have Sullivan removed form the case. In a stunning move, Sullivan had previously announced the appointment of a retired federal judge to act as an amici opposed to the DOJ’s dismissal of the Flynn case–in a sense appointing his own prosecutor to continue the case.

    Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and was awaiting sentencing but has since changed attorneys and moved to withdraw his plea with the new hire Powell exposing government efforts to set-up and entrap Flynn, cover-up evidence exonerating Flynn and threaten Flynn’s son with malicious prosecution. The DOJ recently moved to dismiss the case with prejudice after the revelations of massive misconduct were exposed.

    And not a dime will come out of his pocket. It seems as though these scum have decided that if they don't finish railroading Flynn the entire game is up. And perhaps it is.

    To me it seems like Judge Sullivan is being very loyal to Obama. This looks like a personal vendetta.

    Who will Judge Sullivan Answer have to answer to for blatantly disregarding both his previous decisions not to allow amicus briefs in this case AND a recent (2-3 weeks) decision from SCOTUS (9-0 decision) authored by RBG? Does he get to answer to 0bama?

    How about some REAL accountability? Maybe thrown off the bench? Disbarred? Obviously jail is beyond the pale, but he instead gets to hire another lawyer to defend his a**? Bull!

    I’m not a legal scholar, but do you really need to be? This is ridiculous.

    I 1000% guarantee you this will not end well for anti-Trump judge Sullivan.

    This judge is a circus show: judge, prosecutor and defendant, all in one.

    Beth Wilkinson is a specialist criminal law trial lawyer. She doesn't answer appellate court requests. She represents citizens who are charged with criminal offenses or are in criminal legal jeopardy
    I believe the his Honor may be in hot water.

    If this is true, it may explain a lot about Sullivan's extremely strange actions: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1261480070683688967.html

    Except:

    "Mr. (judge) Sullivan,
    I had hoped all along that you would do the right thing, that you would realize that what you're trying to hide is known by people on both sides. I had hoped in knowing that you would consider the situation moot and do the right thing.

    You did not. Instead you turned to your friends for more political favors and cover. So maybe exposing some of those crimes will prompt you to recuse yourself. It's obvious you can't be relied upon to do your job impartially and dismiss all charges, exonerating General Flynn.

    We have met. I have unfortunately worked with Elijah Cummings on more than one occasion. The latest was when he asked me to "assess"
    the viability of his wife's political campaign. The access granted for that proved very very interesting.

    Quick question "your honor", over the years how many millions of dollars in government funds did yourself and your buddy Elijah Cummings siphon off of Howard University? I guess you were right when you said " they don't need it they never amount to anything".

    On a side note, I think it's very kind of you to help your a good friend Cummings in his little multimillion-dollar insurance fraud scheme.
    Like he said no one's ever going to get a police search warrant for federal judges house.

    What better place to hide a bunch of "stolen" art work. I especially like the two of you have in your private office at home.
    You don't have any intention of giving those back do you?

    But I digress.
    Besides the money laundering and the insurance fraud for yourself and your friends. Should we talk about the cases that you have corrupted for money or favors?
    I've compiled quite a list."

    Lawyers taking care of glorified lawyers. Nothing in the interest of the American people will transpire from actions by either side.

    This all seems so ridiculous. I think it seems that way because we are not getting the full, no spin story. There has got to be a reason this judge is doing this and I dont think it's just that he is part of the deep state coup. I wish I could have explained all of the issue and the nuances. Unfortunately we only get that which the right and left want us to know.

    The only bench this judge should be sitting is in a park somewhere feeding pigeons.

    Why would he get a lawyer if he didn't think he did something wrong? Maybe he knows that by refusing to go along with the DOJ's request to drop the case he has opened up questions about himself. What is it about this judge that he doesn't want others to find out about? So much so that he needs an attorney.

    He is nothing more than a deep state POS.
