Irony!

What did Michael Flynn do or not do to get this third degree treatment including bankruptcy?

Shameful.

I can only believe that someone has the goods on Sullivan and he is being forced to take the case to what many would regard as ridiculous lengths and which would potentially destroy his legal reputation, in an attempt to be able to say "I could do no more, release me". He might still emerge as a hero of the Left anyway.

The main objective being to either delay till after the election release of the gagging order on Flynn or his appointment in some position by Trump; or get a perjury conviction against Flynn which would effectively eliminate him from potential future court cases as a witness.

If Flynn gets off, as he should, he will still be pilloried in the MSM as it was just a favour to Trump's mate.

1. Judge Sullivan was potentially biased in his appointment of Gleeson by not asking Gleeson to dismiss or not dismiss - this is potentially against the Code of Conduct for United States Judges Canon 2(A)- "...impartiality..."
2. Judge Sullivan also potentially acted against the Code of Conduct for United States Judges Canon 3(4)
"(c) obtain the written advice of a disinterested expert on the law, but only after giving advance notice to the parties of the person to be consulted and the subject matter of the advice and affording the parties reasonable opportunity to object and respond to the notice and to the advice received"
Judge Sullivan allowed Gleeson to submit a filing before the objection by the defendant was heard in the Appels Court.

Outrageous but not surprising. The whole thing is an outright farce. Jack Matlock, who was United States ambassador to the Soviet Union under Reagan and Bush I is on record saying that if Flynn spoke to the RF ambassador, as and when alleged, there was nothing in the least illegal about it. Yes, I get it - his crime is rather that of lying to the federal investigation. Lying about doing something legal ? Give me a break already.

Larry,
What is the point?

The majority of us rubes just work away our days and pay the taxes while the media and politicians lie to our faces and call us bad names while screwing us and anyone who cares about us. They just make it up as they go. When they were impeaching Trump, they kept saying "no one is above the law." Now rioters are heroes as are sanctuary cities and those little jack offs in Seattle that have taken over 6 blocks and a police station...how F'ed up is that?

And on and on it goes. We can get angry, we can write about it, but what good does it do? Unless we band together and kill them all, they will keep going. They have honor or shame to keep them in check. Now I'm probably on a watch list for saying that. Sigh.

What good is this information? Might as well get drunk or stoned and zone out to some porn and go to work and pay the taxes the next day. Because no one is going to actually fight. No one is going to straighten any of this out. Sad day when Antifa has more balls than anyone else in the country.

Two thoughts:

1. In addition to your interesting comparison involving a potential perjury charge,
there is also a comparison of the "lying to the FBI" charge
to a hypothetical analogous situation involving an African-American:

"How would President Obama be reacting to the collapse of the case against Michael Flynn if Flynn were a black teen?

"Picture a racist white FBI agent who hates a black student and became enraged when that teen publicly insulted one of the agent’s close friends.
Say the FBI sends two guys over to the teen’s house, claiming it suspects him of being involved in drug trafficking, and starts asking the kid questions in hopes that the kid will lie.... "

2. The left, and Judge Gleeson, are lambasting AG Barr as stooging for Trump, claiming DOJ's motion to drop charges was influenced by Trump.
But recall Barack Obama made a widely-reported appeal to charge Flynn with perjury.
So if Trump influenced Barr, by the same token could Obama have influenced Sullivan and Gleeson?
And if Flynn is fairly described as Trump's ally and friend,
is it not equally fair to describe Flynn as Obama's opponent and enemy?
