The Able (Retired) USDC Judge Gleeson… Completely Buries Bill Barr, Michael Flynn and… Trump.

The amicus briefing, appointed by the District Court, to review the propriety of the Bill Barr attempt to toss Flynn’s knowing and voluntary and thrice reiterated, in open court — under oath. . . GUILTY plea — has just arrived, And been filed, this morning.

It is comprehensive, and masterful. Spoiler alert: Barr. . . loses. Flynn. . . loses. Which means. . . Trump. . . loses. Here’s a bit of the 82 pages:

. . . .First, “the requirement of judicial approval entitles the judge to obtain and evaluate the prosecutor’s reasons.” United States v. Ammidown, 497 F.2d 615, 620 (D.C. Cir. 1973). Here, the Government’s statement of reasons for seeking dismissal is pretextual. The Government claims there is insufficient evidence to prove materiality and falsity, but even giving it the benefit of every doubt — and recognizing its prerogative to assess the strength of its own case — this contention “taxes the credulity of the credulous.” Maryland v. King, 569 U.S. 435, 466 (2013) (Scalia, J., dissenting). . . .

The Government’s ostensible grounds for seeking dismissal are conclusively disproven by its own briefs filed earlier in this very proceeding. They contradict and ignore this Court’s prior orders, which constitute law of the case. They are riddled with inexplicable and elementary errors of law and fact. And they depart from positions that the Government has taken in other cases. . . .

Oh. And as an added observation (for my erstwhile long time Anon. commenter, on the main site) — this means we will actually get three separate bites at the apple. Smile. . . and one of them will surely fell Flynn and Barr. And with them. . . Trump — all likely coming after November 2020, however. Onward, grinning.
