Washington D.C. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is a District native and is a graduate of both Howard University’s undergraduate college and School of Law.

He’s making headlines tonight as the judge who blasted former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for lying to federal investigators about conversations with Russian foreign officials and for paid lobbying on behalf of foreign governments.

Sullivan declined to sentence Flynn as was expected, opting instead to grant the disgraced military general and Trump appointee a delay in sentencing in order to provide more support as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible wrongdoing and crimes committed during the 2016 presidential election.

Here’s the news wrap on Sullivan’s remarkable courtroom drag of Flynn.

An already ticked off federal judge on Tuesday slapped Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, with restrictions on his travel as he awaits sentencing.

Judge Emmet Sullivan’s order came hours after he told Flynn “arguably you sold your country out” — and suggested the retired Army lieutenant general could face prison if a sentencing proceeded as scheduled on Tuesday afternoon.

Sullivan was nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in 1994 by former President Bill Clinton. He was confirmed later that year.

Prior to that, Sullivan was nominated to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in 1992 by former President George H.W. Bush. In 1984, he was nominated to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia by former President Ronald Reagan.

However, Judge Sullivan told Flynn: “This is a very serious offence.

“A high-ranking senior official of the government making false statements to the FBI while on the physical premises of the White House.”

At one point, Judge Sullivan asked the prosecutor whether the special counsel’s office had ever considered charging Flynn with treason.

The judge told Flynn: “Arguably, you sold your country out.”

Judge Sullivan also said he “can’t hide my disgust, my disdain” for the offence.

  1. The truth and integrity of American citizenship as often reflected by the pledge and symbolic flag tested. The judge saw the merger of white privilege in this case even when FLYNN ADMITTED THAT HE LIED AND WAS NOT “HOODWINKED OR BAMBOOZLED”. MUELLER BESTOWED A GET OUT OF JAIL CARD. The judge knows too many who rot in jail on “trumpedup charges” and spoke the truth. Let it MARINATE on you. COLIN KAEPERNICK “JUSTICE FOR ALL”. Yeah.

  2. With all that is going on in the world today I’m so glad to know there are judges in our courts that will not tolerate corruption
