Will the United States Supreme Court Have to Dismiss the Persecution of Michael T. Flynn?

October 5, 2020 --

As scheduled, the hearing on the motion to dismiss the case against former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn was held September 29, 2020.   

While the immediate online reaction of the media was to disclose that Sidney Powell, counsel for Flynn, had met with President Trump and, among other things, asked him not to pardon her client, LPR was struck by the continued insistence of the friend of the court brought in by Judge Sullivan, former federal judge John Gleeson, that the motion to dismiss represents "a corrupt and politically motivated favor unworthy of the judicial system."   

For LPR, a better example of turning truth on its head, in a judicial forum, could not be found. 

As LPR sees it, the Flynn prosecution reflects "a corrupt and politically motivated" strategem intended to undermine a presidential transition unworthy of an outgoing president.

A thought occurred to LPR, precisely at 4.23 p.m., Wednesday, September 30, as to why Judge Sullivan cannot bring himself to grant the Flynn's motion to dismiss. 

LPR reasons that U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is afflicted with the Arafat Syndrome in that, just as Yasir Arafat could not bring himself to finalize peace with Israel, perhaps fearing assassination at the hands of Palestinian extremists  (recall that  Egypt's President Anwar Sadat was murdered after making peace with Israel), Judge Sullivan cannot bring himself to end the ordeal of Michael T. Flynn, fearing reputational assassination at the hands of The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Perhaps the motion to dismiss the persecution of Michael T. Flynn will have to be granted by our ultimate source of systemic judicial fairness:  the United States Supreme Court.
