“This Development is Huge”: Attorney Explains Why New Judge Could Bring Justice For Gen. Flynn
With each passing day, more evidence suggests the indictment of former National Security Adviser Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was a dubious one.
In what would be an insurmountable blow to special counsel Robert Mueller’s unchecked Russia probe, former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell says if there is a man who can bring justice for Flynn, it’s Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.
Sidney Powell explains:
The judge assigned to Flynn’s case now is Emmet G. Sullivan. Judge Sullivan immediately issued what is called a “Brady” order requiring Mueller to provide Flynn all information that is favorable to the defense whether with respect to guilt or punishment.[…]
This development is huge. Prosecutors almost never provide this kind of information to a defendant before he enters a plea — much less after he has done so. […]Judge Sullivan is the perfect judge to decide General Flynn’s motion. The judicial hero of my book, Emmet Sullivan held federal prosecutors in contempt for failing to disclose evidence, dismissed the corrupted prosecution of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the Department of Justice. […]
Emmet G. Sullivan is one judge who is ready, willing and able to hold Mr. Mueller accountable to the law and who has the wherewithal to dismiss the case against General Flynn — for egregious government misconduct — if Mueller doesn’t move to dismiss it himself.
Judge Sullivan’s experience can only help General Flynn as more evidence appears every day to reveal that Flynn should not have been prosecuted.
On Monday, Byron York of the Washington Examiner reported former FBI Director James Comey told congressional investigators he did not believe Flynn lied during an unannounced interview with agent Peter Strzok on January 24th, 2017.
According to veteran political operative and Infowars correspondent, Roger Stone, lawyers for Flynn are preparing legal action to have all charges against him dropped.
Last month, special counsel Robert Mueller requested the postponement of Flynn’s sentencing.
“Due to the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” the special counsel asked the court.
Mueller's office and lawyers for Michael Flynn want more time, per new filing:

The court filing stated the special counsel could not determine a sentencing date for Flynn and requested a 90-day extension.
On December 1st, 2017, Flynn plead guilty to lying to FBI agents about making contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the transition period.
