Bill Barr’s Attempt To Dismiss Flynn Case Has Been Ruled ‘Corrupt And Politically Motivated’ By Outside Counsel

The outside counsel that was appointed by a federal judge to review Attorney General William Barr’s motion to dismiss the case of Michael Flynn has concluded that the motion is a “corrupt and politically motivated favor unworthy of our justice system.”

John Gleeson, a retired judge appointed by U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, called out Barr for not addressing Donald Trump’s attacks on the case and support for Flynn.

According to Politico, Gleeson noted that Trump’s “pressure campaign” to get Flynn off is politically motivated.

Ultimately, Gleeson recommends the motion to dismiss the Flynn case be denied.

“To describe the Government’s Motion to Dismiss as irregular would be a study in understatement,” Judge Gleeson wrote in his 30-page brief.

“In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty—twice, before two different judges—and whose guilt is obvious.”

Gleeson also says the “government’s failure to defend its own pretextual reasoning is matched by its silence on the subject of abuse of power.”
