By Fox News. Is U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s collusion cameo nearing its end?
On Thursday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, on its own motion, ordered Judge Sullivan to respond within 10 days to the petition for a writ of mandamus filed by former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Earlier this week, Flynn’s counsel, Sidney Powell, filed the petition for that extraordinary writ, asking the appellate court to instruct Sullivan to grant the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case against Flynn.
That was after Judge Sullivan not only declined to grant the prosecution’s motion, but (a) invited non-parties to intervene in the case by filing amicus briefs (transparently, to make arguments that he somehow has authority to deny DOJ’s motion); and (b) appointed one amicus, former federal judge John Gleeson, as a quasi-prosecutor to make arguments that prosecutors are declining to make in favor of entering a judgment of conviction and sentencing Flynn.

Mollie Hemingway: Obama Becoming ‘Chattier’ as More Is Learned About Flynn Investigation
By Fox News. The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway told “The Brian Kilmeade Show” Wednesday that former President Barack Obama is “a little bit chattier” as more information regarding the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is revealed.
“[Obama’s] becoming more public as we learn more about how he went after him and undermined the peaceful transfer of government from his administration to the Trump administration and I think that’s why he’s a little bit chattier,” Hemingway, a Fox News contributor, told host Brian Kilmeade.
On Saturday, former President Obama, while speaking at an event for students graduating from historically black colleges and universities that was broadcast on social media, took a shot at government officials in charge of responding to the coronavirus, arguing that the pandemic showed they were incompetent.
Although Obama didn’t directly name President Trump, he has previously criticized the administration’s response as plagued by selfishness.
Obama’s comments came following the Justice Department’s move earlier this month to drop its case against Flynn after internal memos were released raising serious questions about the nature of the investigation that led to Flynn’s late 2017 guilty plea of lying to the FBI.
