is there a precedence for a judge putting somebody on trial after the DOJ dropped the case with no third party involved?

somebody here told me that usually it only happens when you go after abusive husbands or something when the woman drops the case and the DOJ takes it up for the public interest as I understand it

61
45fan 61 points ago

No. There is no precedence for this.

Judges are not of the Dredd variety. If there is no one bringing a criminal complaint then there is nothing to adjudicate.

It is not an exaggeration to suggest that this judge is acting completely outside of his authority.

I think that's the plan to be honest. Not Flynn's plan but the Deepstate.

Because Flynn has already been proven innocent under the letter of the law. Deepstate can't win legally. So their only tactic is optics now.

So I think their plan is to do such a miscarriage of justice, force it to the Supreme Court, where the court will of course side with the law...but this will allow the media to paint it as "Trump's handpicked judges let Flynn go, Trump is corrupt!"

I don't understand what is happening, the DOJ dropped it's case and this judge is refusing to dismiss it? Is that right?

careyanne1000 30 points ago

Yes. He has requested a friend brief to justify Flynn being still found guilty. This friend brief will be written bu another judge he has chosen. Also the new friend judge has asked the court to investigate Flynn and prosecute him for contempt of court. The friendly brief amacus brief, has just Ben struck down by the Supreme Court a week ago. So this is saying to the next court stop him because what the judge is doing is not legal

17
Reev_Jax 17 points ago

I see, so they are making the court the "victim" to continue prosecuting Flynn since the original victim, the US Gov, dropped the charges.

That is some fucking shady shit right there.

21
ThisTrainHasNoBrakes 21 points ago

Yes. Bit crazy since the judge is not the one with prosecutorial digression, no?

Furthermore, the judge went out of his way to submit more testimony.

Furthermore he called in a friend to do that who JUST RECENTLY penned an OP-ed against Flynn.

Furthermore, the supreme court JUST LAST WEEK ruled that americus briefs like this cannot be used except to help the defendant.

And let's not forget the entire mess that was this case

This judge needs to hang with the rest of them.

14
GlimGlamIsBestPone 14 points ago

As I understand it, Flynn was coerced into pleading guilty a really long time ago, and the prosecution kept asking for a delay in sentencing. They delayed for so long, that Flynn got new defense in Sidney Powell, who convinced him to try and withdraw his plea deal. At the same time, Durham uncovered evidence showing foul play in the prosecution of Flynn, and as a result, the DOJ has dropped the case against him.

However, since Flynn already pled guilty, the Judge is now saying that he has the right to keep the trial going, and that if he decides not to allow Flynn to withdraw the guilty plea, then he can sentence him for the crime he pled guilty to, regardless of the fact that it was a coerced deal, and that the DOJ has withdrawn the case, ie. no longer claim Flynn is guilty of what he pled to.

It’s sick, and it will never hold up to constitutional challenge.

A guilty plea in court is really meaningless. People always plea based on their chances of winning and the cost of winning. It has nothing to do with with if someone is guilty or innocent.

There should be a third plea, no contest.

2
Keyboard_Warrior 2 points ago

True. We got weirdos trying to take credits for murders out there and plead guilty but doesnt mean they are or will be sentenced for it.

3
Long_time_lurker 3 points ago

Neither do we, the judge has gone completely off the rails here.

The basic answer is that he didn't like that the DoJ dropped the prosecution due to prosecutorial misconduct, so he appointed his own prosecutor under the guise of an "amicus" to take over the state's role. Said "amicus" has already publicly declared Flynn guilty in an op-ed in a major paper. The court, as well, has called Flynn a "traitor" in open court, something in no way supported by any of the accusations against him.

He should absolutely be censured for abuse of discretion when they decide on this writ, but only in a just world if we draw a just judge to review this instead of someone biased.

2
Freadrik 2 points ago

Sullivan is using the “phone a friend” clause of the Constitution. It’s in the addendum, so not many people read that far.

If that fails, he has one last attempt. It’s the “No Whammy’s” gambit. They bring in the board from the game show and Flynn has one attempt to get “No Whammy’s.” If he does, he has to go to jail.

11
Long_time_lurker 11 points ago

Amen. The only thing that makes me sad is that Susan Rice's CYA memo came out a day too late to be included here, it only makes the setup that much more obvious.

That said, the mandamus petition was everything I wanted and expected to read. I can't see a single missing beat here. In a just world, this would end with an order censuring Sullivan and dismissing the case.

Long_time_lurker 2 points ago

He was decent... in the past. Then he started calling Flynn a traitor in open court and all sorts of nonsense, like ignoring all the prosecutorial misconduct. Sydney quotes his own rulings to show how far out of whack he's gone due to the TDS.

In a just world, they'd throw him off the court and send him to prison for this nonsense.

Frankly I want to start a group after the Fokker ruling that points out that this use of "amicus curae" is nonsense, talk about our strong interest in stopping judicial misconduct and submit an amicus brief calling him a dirty Fokker.

But he'll just ignore all amicus briefs but those which support his narrative and they won't even get docketed because he'll find whatever obscure local rule he has to in order to claim that nobody who says things he doesn't want to hear have any right to be heard, but all his amici will be able to present whatever TDS drivel they want to the court for investigation.

I have a feeling this setup happened some time ago. How long has this amicus of his been working with Mueller prosecutors? He probably figures--and may even be right--that the worst he faces is a strongly worded letter given that he can't be too many years away from retirement at his age. In a just world, we'd impeach him for this egregious misconduct and abuse of discretion.

And inside baseball that you found particularly shocking? How often do you see writs of mandamus?

Edit: also Sullivan just scheduled oral arguments for all of this amicus brief bullshit for July 16. How does that affect the writ of mandamus?

4
nero2003 4 points ago

A writ of mandamus against a judge is very rare. It's only used when he's clearly doing something extremely far outside what is right and normal.

The scheduling order doesn't mean much. He will put it on hold if the Appeals Court acts, which it very likely will. And since it was an emergency motion, they should be acting pretty quick. They'll probably order briefing in the next day or two.

Nor was this the end of the matter. The district judge’s latest actions—failing to grant the Government’s Motion to Dismiss, appointing a biased and highly-political amicus who has expressed hostility and disdain towards the Justice Department’s decision to dismiss the prosecution, and the promiseto set a briefing schedule for widespread amicus participation in further proceedings—bespeaksa judge who is not only biased against Petitioner, but also revels in the notoriety he has created by failing to take the simple step of granting a motion he has no authority to deny. This is an umpire who has decided to steal public attention from the playersand focus it on himself. He wants to pitch,bat, run bases,and play shortstop. In truth, he is way out in left field.

They did. Judge Sullivan here, who has shown in the past he's not a complete moron, has decided in a completely unprecedented move to ask for amicus briefs to be filled and has appointed a partisan retired judge to essentially continue the prosecution.

It's odd because Sullivan is one of the central figures in Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell's book liscence to lie, which is about previous malfiesence in the DOJ by none other than Mueller report author Andrew Weissman and others.

It's up to the judge sitting on the case whether or not to pursue, even if the plaintiff (in this case, the DOJ) drops the charges. Like 9000% of the time if the plaintiff drops the judge will dismiss, but this is a dirty assed judge that needs to be disbarred.

Except even in this case, the state, i.e. the federal government, has dropped the charges. Sullivan will lose in the end, but he's going to try every dirty trick he can to extend Flynn's suffering. This isn't about justice, it's about spite, it always was.

What makes it even more egregious is the fact that with all the information recently released about how the FBI agents were operating, even if they could try to prosecute the case, they would never win. The judge doesn't care about this information, because he's in on it. He's playing the part he was meant to play long before Flynn got framed. Sullivan wasn't a random judge, he was chosen specifically because they knew he was corrupt.

I thought a woman never decides to drop charges. She tells the state what happened and the state files the charges and prosecutes. That's why she can't tell anyone to drop the charges... she can become uncooperative, however, screwing up any case the state might have.

I think this is the actual situation. This is why people don't report crimes in some cases because they'd rather not involve the police and all the issues/disruption in life that can cause for them personally or those around them.

Judge has to sign off on the dropped case.

There is no prosecutor.... DOJ dropped, its an easy call. But he brought in amicus briefing to “build a case” and basically formed his own prosecutors

12 AGs from red states filed amicus briefing in support of DOJ dropping. I bet this judge didnt see that coming

Now Flynn’s lawyers filed with US appeals courts to remove sullivan and drop the case. Sullivan is in the wrong here by a lot

I think the deep state scumbags want Trump to pardon Flynn, rather than him getting a complete dismissal. This would make it more difficult for Trump to bring Flynn back into a position in the IC. Just my opinion

Because this is a military matter, the judge should be declared an unlawful combatant and placed in military custody for a military tribunal.

The retired judge he reached out to should face the same along with all DOJ/FBI members involved. Send them to gitmo to get the truth.

I feel this was the plan all along by judge Sullivan. Drag things out until the upper court is forced to take it. When the charges are dropped, the Left can change the narrative to “Flynn is guilty but the corrupt, conservative judges overturned it as a favor to Trump. One of the judges is appointed by Trump so it must be true.”

The judge: he’s guilty The government: we don’t actually have any evidence he lied. The judge: still guilty The government: he was never actually under investigation The judge: still guilty The government: and we lost the 302’s that proved he was innocent The judge: still guilty The government: so we’re dropping the charges The judge: still guilty The government: guilty of what? The judge: I don’t know yet. I’ll have to consult with a bunch of people who hate his guts for their opinions

Justice.

My favorite line from the Writ of Mandamus:

(Referring to Judge Sullivan)

This is an umpire who has decided to steal public attention from the players and focus it on himself. He wants to pitch, bat, run bases, and play shortstop. In truth, he is way out in left field.

This all goes back to the turn of the 20th century, a time in which corrupt democrat machines had achieved full control of the major cities and much of Washington. The icing on the cake was the arrival of the Sicilian Mafia and the administrations of FDR, who thoroughly and brazen politicized the judicial. When was the last time we heard of judicial misconduct, bribery, or conflict of interest? Those cases go nowhere, today.

Can the DOJ step in at any point and dismiss it or somehow else enforce some justice?

2
Siteless_Vagrant [S] 2 points ago

All the DOJ is what they already did, and drop the charges. Up to the judge hearing the case whether or not to pursue. USUALLY, the judge will dismiss, but this judge is POS resistor.

3
bubadmt 3 points ago

So can the DOJ ultimately decide to drop the charges in spite of the judge deciding to pursue it further?

3
Siteless_Vagrant [S] 3 points ago

Bro, the DOJ has ALREADY dropped the charges, like 2 weeks ago.

3
bubadmt 3 points ago

I'm aware, but it seems like the judge has some sort of endgame in mind in which Flynn could still face some sort of repercussions despite the DOJs actions. IANAL so I'm not familiar with the intricacies of the legal system but from what I gather, they have something in mind.

5

The endgame is that they want to try Flynn for perjury for saying that he was guilty.

I think there's still another piece to that puzzle. Her email just really stinks. It smells like a corroborative effort on behalf of herself, Obama, Comey, Yates, and anyone else who may have been there at the time to try and cover their asses should it break wide open. I think Trump might know of some "papers" that will shine a little more light on that email.

2
LuvHarambe 2 points ago

The fact that she continued to cover for Obama and Comey by quoting “by the book” like 3 or 4 times is what does it for me. Sending that email to herself with all of that in it, 2 weeks after the meeting took place, and just as the new administration they were spying on was taking office...
