BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Sixteen former Watergate prosecutors have notified Emmet Sullivan, a judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, that they intend to file an “amicus curiae” (“friend of the court”) brief in the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn after the Department of Justice (DOJ) moved to dismiss the charges against him.
Flynn had previously pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators, but he moved to withdraw that plea earlier this year, followed by the DOJ decision last week.
Sullivan, however, has not yet approved the DOJ’s motion and made the unusual move this week of announcing that he would accept such amicus briefs in the case. Sullivan is a trial judge in a trial court and amicus briefs are typically associated with appellate courts.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters agrees with the sixteen former prosecutors. “Finally there is going to be justice,” explained Waters. “I have felt all along that Michael Flynn along with President Trump were directly involved in the 1972 failed break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters. As far as I’m concerned, this is Watergate 2.0. Finally the truth will come out! I hope Trump doesn’t use his executive privilege to prevent Richard Nixon from testifying! Quarantine and Impeach 45!”
