End Mike Flynn’s persecution!

Author Franz Kafka’s name has become synonymous with nightmarish judicial proceedings. Kafkaesque barely begins to describe, however, what federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is doing to Mike Flynn after Attorney General William Barr decided to terminate the general’s prosecution for lying to the FBI.

After Gen. Flynn finally got competent counsel, the case against President Trump’s first National Security Advisor has proven to be not just groundless, but a scandalous abuse of power.

Yet, Emmet Sullivan is refusing to recognize that, as Flynn attorney Sidney Powell puts it, “The case is over.” With the official prosecutor standing down, the judge has appointed his own to continue what is actually the persecution of a heroic three-star general, whom he once asserted could have been tried for treason.

Sidney Powell’s request yesterday for the Appeals Court to remove Judge Sullivan should be approved immediately.

This is Frank Gaffney.
