A ‘Curiously odd’ decision
in an on-going miscarriage of justice.
Blaska blogs ‘completely by the book’
Judge Emmet Sullivan has hired … well-known Washington DC criminal defense attorney Beth Wilkinson [and wife of CNN’s David Gregory] to “represent” him in connection with the Circuit Court order [that he show cause why he shouldn’t dismissed charges against Matthew Flynn, as demanded by the prosecution].
It remains an open question whether the Circuit Court will accept or hear anything from Wilkinson on Judge Sullivan’s behalf. Their order was specific as to him, he’s not a “party” represented by counsel.
If Judge Sullivan is not capable of answering a question about the application of a Rule of Criminal Procedure, the Appeals Court might want to take up the question of Judge Sullivan’s fitness to serve as a district court judge.
