Incompetent Lunatic Judge Emmit Sullivan Waits Two Weeks To Ask For a Reconsideration of His Bullshit Position

Today is the day that Emmit Sullivan is required by law -- by a mandamus directive from the Court of Appeals that oversees him -- to dismiss the Flynn case.

Instead of doing so, he asks for an en banc review, less than two hours before the End of Business Day deadline.

He could have made this request at any time over the past two weeks.

But he waited until almost the 5pm deadline.

The theory that this cocksucker is just trying to stall this case out so that a Biden DOJ can revive the case is getting stronger.

The judge in Michael Flynn's criminal case asked a federal appeals court Thursday to reconsider its ruling ordering him to dismiss the criminal case against the former national security advisor to President Donald Trump.

Judge Emmet Sullivan's lawyer asked for a so-called en banc review of the decision of the three-judge appeals court panel, which would involve all active judges on the court to re-hear the case.

The lawyer for Sullivan argued in a lengthy court filing that the order to quickly grant the Department of Justice's request to drop its prosecution of Flynn "threatens to turn ordinary judicial process upside down."

You know what turns ordinary judicial process upside down? A rogue judge deciding he's now a member of the Executive branch with the power to appoint his own personal prosecutor.

I don't expect the Court to grant this motion. I expect them to quickly send along another mandamus order telling him that he is in breach of the first one.

There are two reasons why: First, granting an en banc review is rare.

But second -- any judge on the Circuit Court, including the Obamabot who dissented in the ruling, could have asked for an en banc hearing at any time. That is, a member of the court can ask for an en banc hearing of their own volition.

If there were six votes (I think that's the required number) in favor of such a motion, the en banc hearing would be scheduled.

Indeed -- I think it would have already been scheduled.

But it wasn't.

I assume that the Obamabot judge did ask for a rehearing -- and failed to collect the required number of votes to have one.

I think this cocksucker lunatic was hoping the court would act on its own to schedule an en banc rehearing, not wanting to further piss them off. Today he realized they weren't going to -- so he sent along his dilatory motion for a rehearing, less than two hours before he is directed, by law, to dismiss the case.

If the court is going to have to entertain this cocksucker's shenanigans again, I think they should reopen discussion about whether it's time to reassign the Flynn case to someone with the constitutionally-required level of judicial dispassion and objectivity.

Robert Barnes said the court did not do that because that truly is humiliating -- a superior court straight-up saying you lack the emotional maturity to judge a case. A ruling like that will also haunt you throughout what remains of your career, as defendants can cite a previous ruling that you were unfit to serve as a judge to disqualify you from their cases.

It's time. They've given this slow-witted scumbag enough leeway. It's time to officially deem him the insane vindictive hyperemotional would-be tyrant that he is.

Thanks to deplorable unperson.

Update: Houstonian doesn't think it's a big deal that Sullivan filed this just before the deadline, and doesn't think it means much that the court itself did not already vote for an en banc review:

67 Not that I'm any fan of Judge Sullivan. The criticism of him trying to act as an Executive while in judicial robes is spot-on.

But the filing two hours before the deadline is just lawyers being lawyers. Especially if the filing document is, as the excerpt says, "lengthy".

And while judges can initiate an en banc review, the vast majority of requests for en-banc reviews come from the side disappointed in what the three-judge panel did.

I wouldn't consider a last-moment request for an en banc to be particularly sinister. Just an everyday occurrence.

But, as said above, Sullivan trying to appoint his own prosecutor is absolutely horrendous.
