(Tea Party PAC) – The judge assigned to the case against General Michael Flynn is attracting the ire of patriots everywhere this week after a pathetic attempt to keep the case alive despite last week’s decision from the Department of Justice to drop charges against the former national security adviser.
Harvard professor and constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz declared, in no uncertain terms, that Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, a Clinton-appointee, should be impeached for the role he has played in what will surely become one of the blackest marks on the history of our great republic.
If this judge has the GALL to not throw this out, he ought to be impeached,” Dershowitz declared on Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday evening.
“Remember that judges only have jurisdiction for cases and controversies,” he continued. “There’s no controversy here. Both sides agree this case should be dismissed. This judge has no power to do anything else. And if he asserts that power, he has violated the Constitution.”

You don’t need to be a constitutional scholar of Dershowitz’ pedigree to know that he is absolutely right.
On Tuesday, Judge Sullivan issued a controversial order clearly aimed at keeping the Flynn case alive. Fox News reported:
D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order Tuesday indicating he’ll soon accept “amicus curiae,” or “friend of the court” submissions, in the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn — drawing immediate scrutiny and a planned ethics complaint against Sullivan, who had previously refused to hear amicus briefs in the case.
Sullivan’s order indicated that an upcoming scheduling order would clarify the parameters of who specifically could submit the amicus briefs, which are submissions by non-parties that claim an interest in the case. Sullivan specifically said he anticipated that “individuals and organizations” will file briefs “for the benefit of the court,” as he prepares to rule on the government’s motion to dismiss the case.
“Judge Sullivan, who denied leave to file amicus briefs when he knew third parties would have spoken favorably of Flynn, now solicits briefs critical of Flynn,” independent journalist Michael Cernovich wrote on Twitter Tuesday evening. “This is a violation of the judicial oath and applicable ethical rules. We will be filing a complaint against Sullivan. … [He] is acting as a politician, not a judge.”
Sullivan had previously held in the Flynn case that “[o]ptions exist for a private citizen to express his views about matters of public interest, but the Court’s docket is not an available option.”
Judges who oversee cases like the Flynn case should most certainly be impeached as they pose a severe risk to the security of our republic.
