Lawyer appointed by Judge Sullivan to offer arguments in Flynn case already has slammed Trump WH’s ‘improper political influence’

D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an unusual order Wednesday appointing a law firm partner “to present arguments in opposition to the government’s motion to dismiss” the matter — and to consider whether the court should hold Flynn in contempt for perjury.

The partner, retired federal judge John Gleeson, has openly criticized the Trump administration’s handling of Michael Flynn’s case, raising concerns that he was selected to improperly bolster Sullivan’s efforts to keep the Flynn case alive even though both the government and defendant want it dismissed.

Sullivan has previously suggested Flynn may have committed treason, in a bizarre 2018 courtroom outburst, and seemingly confused key details about Flynn’s overseas lobbying work.

The precise reasons for the perjury review were not clear in Sullivan’s order. Last year, Flynn abruptly abandoned his plan to provide testimony against a former associate, after admitting that he had lied on federal forms required under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Flynn has said he received constitutionally inadequate legal advice.
