Federal judge says he won’t close the Flynn case just yet — and wants other parties to submit filings

Published

on

On Tuesday, federal district judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order that declined to immediately close the case into President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — despite the fact that the Department of Justice has moved to dismiss the case.

Sullivan wrote that “given the current posture of the case,” some outside parties may want to file their own friend-of-the-court briefs on the matter, and that he would like to solicit such briefs.

The DOJ’s decision to drop the case into Flynn has triggered outrage and accusations that Attorney General William Barr is weaponizing the legal system to validate the president’s conspiracy theories. Trump has long claimed that Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the Russia investigation, was railroaded, despite having thin evidence to suggest this.

Writing in The Atlantic this Friday, Peter Wehner takes a renewed look at President Trump's white evangelical Christian base, saying that they've sacrifices whatever alleged principles they had in order to support Trump -- a decision that brought them nothing in return.

"Legislatively, Trump, compared with other presidents, has not achieved all that much for the pro-life cause and religious-liberties protection," Wehner writes. "For example, George W. Bush’s pro-life record is stronger and Bill Clinton achieved more in the area of religious liberties, signing into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. ... Trump has also achieved next to nothing in terms of enacting education reforms."
