After a strong few weeks for General Michael Flynn that culminated in his exoneration by the Department of Justice, Judge Emmet Sullivan chose to dampen the mood by calling for an amicus curiae, retired judge John Gleeson, to argue against the government’s position. This sent shockwaves through the nation, particularly among Flynn supporters who have been waiting three long years for his exoneration.

This is unambiguous abuse of power. The problem is, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it. Not Flynn. Not his legal team. Not the Department of Justice. Not the people. The only person who can somewhat blunt the effects of what we an assume will be a denial of the Department of Justice’s motion to dismiss is the President who could pardon Flynn. But a pardon is not an exoneration. Pardons are for people who are guilty of a crime. General Flynn is not. JD and Tammy discussed the problem with all of this in the latest episode of the NOQ Report Podcast.
Something must be done to restrain activist judges from abusing their immense power. It happens every day in courts across America, yet nobody is doing what is necessary to rein in judicial supremacy.
