Which is ridiculous on its face because if Pres. Trump were to lose, he’d just pardon the guy.
The federal judge presiding over the criminal case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn has ordered the Justice Department to conduct an unusual review of its filings in the case and certify by Monday whether any have been manipulated.
The order is a signal of intense distrust between the judge, Emmet Sullivan, and the department, whose filings are typically accepted at face value. In this case, DOJ has already acknowledged that two documents it previously filed — handwritten notes taken by former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — were altered “inadvertently” to include inaccurate dates.Judge orders Justice Department to verify its filings in Flynn case
Sullivan has been prejudiced in this case for quite a while, looking for any reason to keep it going. Which has given us great documents about how bad the FBI has been! There’s a part of me that wonders whether he might actually be able to get the original 302 that would totally exonerate Flynn– but the more I see, the more I think that Sullivan believed that Flynn was bad, is upset that the DOJ is letting him go, so he believes it is all Trump interference and “Trying to get his friends off.”
