nearvideo judge delays Flynn condemnation until the investigation of the cooperation is completed
Some of the comments by the Federal judge overseeing the confession of the former National security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, were “pretty reckless,” Townhall editor Katie Pavlich said on Tuesday on “Special Report” All-Star panel.
U.S. district judge Emmet G. Sullivan unleashed on Flynn, the former trump administration officials who admitted lying to the FBI about his communications with the Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.
“Well, you sold out your country!” Sullivan said Flynn, before suggesting that his misdeeds of goods reveals.
Pavlich insisted that the white judge that the case is in front of him, “one of the most high-profile cases was in the public atmosphere, in a very long time.”
“For him to Stand on the things out in the open, if the room is full of reporters, and everyone is to observe that things that are not true and then you go back, salacious betrayal is quite ruthless,” Pavlich said the panel — which also include Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York and NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
York, felt similarly, calling Sullivan the betrayal of Flynn’s case, calling “outrageous”.
“Before it was over, the judge in question had been whether or not Flynn had committed treason, this is outrageous, especially from a Federal judge had suggested to the Bank that maybe Flynn sold out his country, and that he said a non-registered foreign agent in the White house, he was not,” York. “A judge may propose that uncharged conduct in a case of conviction, but really, he was a non-registered foreign agent in the White house is wrong, because the public Prosecutor’s office, I believe, corrected the judge to say that it was before. “
York added, it was “this strange situation”, which “moved almost like the craziness of the whole Trump the debate moved into the courtroom for a day” and that Flynn’s future was “completely uncertain”, because his conviction was to March.
Liasson agreed, and called some of Sullivan’s comments “very bewildering” because it seemed that he was “concerned” that Flynn was “he’s guilty of something he is not guilty,” and then “suggested” that Flynn was “guilty of what he is not yet calculated, still.”
Pavlich also pointed out that the White house officials seemed to be “distancing” from Flynn “for the first time,” but the question on whether or not President trump “is” his decision to ask for Flynn’s resignation after the revelation that Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence.
