Report: Judge in Michael Flynn case hires a lawyer… for the Judge

 Posted by William A. Jacobson  ▪  May 23, 2020 at 5:30pm

WaPo reports Judge Emmet Sullivan has hired high-profile D.C. lawyer Beth Wilkinson to help him respond to the appeals court order that he explain his conduct in the Flynn case.

Judge Emmet Sullivan has been ordered by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to explain his actions In the Michael Flynn case.

(more…)    :snip:   

Wilkinson is a consummate D.C. insider, and is the wife of former Meet the Press host and now CNN commentator David Gregory. But she also represented Brett Kavanaugh.

As of this writing, the PACER electronic docket does not indicate an entry of appearance by Wilkinson.   :snip:

In the Flynn case, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals issues a surprising order

By Andrea Widburg

It looked like a good day for General Michael Flynn when the Department of Justice, having learned how corrupt the previous administration's case against Flynn was, moved to dismiss the prosecution.  This is the kind of motion that courts rubber-stamp unless they fear that the Justice Department is dismissing a weak case as a prelude to filing a stronger case later.  Without that situation present, Sullivan's only option should have been to grant the motion.

On May 11, Judge Emmet Sullivan, who had been openly hostile to Flynn, surprised everyone by saying from the bench that he was inviting third parties to weigh in on the matter, opposing both Flynn and the DOJ.  One day later, acting on his own initiative, Sullivan appointed John Gleeson, a retired judge who had co-written a Washington Post opinion piece objecting to Flynn's dismissal, to argue against the DOJ's motion to dismiss. :snip:
