The Flynn Affair, well that didn’t take long

Good day all. Well, that didn’t take long at all. No sooner do I post an entry regarding Judge Emmett Sullivan and his abuse of General Flynn, then Sidney Powell files an emergency appeal to get him booted off the case.

Briefly, (Because I wrote about it extensively here), Sullivan didn’t like the fact that Flynn wanted to withdraw his guilty plea and the Department of Justice, after determining that Flynn was being railroaded by the Mueller prosecutor, dropped the charges against him. Instead he tried to make up a charge and brought in one of his bestest buddies and extreme TDS sufferer, John Gleeson, to try and justify jailing Flynn anyway.

I remarked that Sullivan needed to be removed, and Attorney Sidney Powell has just filed an emergency appeal to do just that. Here are the details from Fox News:

Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell on Tuesda filed an emergency writ of mandamus to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals seeking the immediate removal of Judge Emmet Sulivan from the case — and saying that under appellate precedent set by the “Fokker Services” case, Sullivan or his replacement must dismiss the prosecution, as the Justice Department has requested.

Writs of mandamus are extraordinary remedies, which are appropriate when there has been a “usurpation of judicial power” that is “clear and indisputable” — and, Powell argued, Sullivan’s behavior fits the bill. Powell pointed in particular to Sullivan’s bizarre suggestion in December 2018 that Flynn had “sold out his country” and could have been prosecuted for “treason,” as well as Sullivan’s misstatements on the facts of the case.

Powell also demanded the appellate court vacate Sullivan’s order appointing an “amicus curiae,” or “friend of the court,” to argue in favor of preserving Flynn’s guilty plea on one count of making false statements to the FBI during an unusual January 24, 2017 White House interview.

As I mentioned in the other blog post, The Supreme Court just landed on the 9th Circus Court of Appeals for doing essentially the same thing that Sullivan is trying to do. With that ruling, and it was a unanimous decision, I don’t see any wiggle room for the Obama judges on D.C. Circuit court. Yes, they may try to work around it, but you can bet if they do, the next appeal will be to the Supreme Court, and they will not be happy that the decision they reached only a few weeks ago is being ignored.

Reading through the article, and please be aware that this is a breaking story, and the 72 hour rule is in effect, it doesn’t appear that Powell used that decision in her filing. However, she did throw an awful lot of other information on how Sullivan is violating pretty much everything with his antics. We shall see what happens.
