Judge finally drops charges against Michael Flynn

December 8, 2020

Way back in May the Department of Justice dropped the charges against Michael Flynn but despite the fact that nobody was prosecuting the case Judge Emmet Sullivan refused to dismiss the case. Several weeks ago Donald Trump pardoned Michael Flynn yet the judge still did not drop the charges but now it is officially over as Judge Sullivan gave up his politically motivated fight.

Here is more:

A federal judge dismissed a criminal case against Michael Flynn on Tuesday, weeks after President Donald Trump pardoned his former national security adviser on charges stemming from the special counsel’s investigation.

The ruling from Judge Emmet Sullivan formally ends Flynn’s three-year legal saga, which began with a plea deal the retired Army general entered on Dec. 1, 2017 in the special counsel’s probe of foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Judge Sullivan made sure to let everybody know that this does not mean that Michael Flynn is innocent and he also called the pardon politically motivated.

“President Trump’s decision to pardon Mr. Flynn is a political decision, not a legal one. Because the law recognizes the President’s political power to pardon, the appropriate course is to dismiss this case as moot,” Sullivan wrote.

Ironic that the judge is upset that a case which was brought forth for political reasons in the first place and then continued for political reasons was dropped for what he called political reasons, isn’t it?

Where does Michael Flynn go to get his reputation back?

    These particular charges may be dismissed. Foreign agents act dismissed. Perjury dismissed. But in politically motivated prosecutions you are not done until Treasury and IRS are done skinning you alive. Take no comfort in this recent set of events. My guess is that the trial of Flynn and his family is not over.

    A thought that occurred to me while reading this post…I think Pelosi and the Far Left demonic Dems needs to pay the taxpayers back for the 4 years of time and money they wasted. If only they were accountable… if only they could be tried for treason…
