WTH! Judge Sullivan Restricted Travel, Took Mike Flynn’s Passport Away


CNBC reported that Judge Emmet Sullivan discovered for the first time today during the crazy Flynn hearing that the retired General/former National Security Adviser did not have his travel restricted. He wasn’t happy to hear Mike Flynn was free to travel.

After berating Flynn today — suggesting Flynn committed treason and sold his country out — Sullivan added insult to injury. He ordered Flynn to stay within 50 miles of Washington, D.C., beginning January 4th.

The flipping mad judge said Flynn also has to turn his passport in, adding, “To the extent the defendant wishes to travel outside that area, he is directed to file a motion seeking leave of Court.”

Sullivan did approve his already planned international travel.

What is the point of this? Flynn isn’t a flight risk. It’s just nasty and degrading.


Judge Sullivan was off the rails for a while today, mostly because he didn’t have all the information. The prosecutor was obligated to explain the case to the judge but didn’t give him key details beforehand. On the other hand, doesn’t this judge read newspapers? He didn’t know much.

The judge was trying to understand what the core case against Flynn is and he knew it wasn’t perjury.

The Mueller team didn’t mention that Flynn lobbied for Turkey before he was in the White House. Sullivan thought he was a paid lobbyist while in the White House which is why the judge thought he was a traitor. The judge also didn’t know that the only crime they could pin on Flynn for the Turkey deal was The Logan Act. Even Sullivan laughed at that.

It also should be noted that the retired general had started to fill out the paperwork that would allow him to act as a foreign agent although he never completed it.

Judge Sullivan walked back the treason comments and claimed he was only asking questions. That is not believable. Perhaps he lies too.


Sullivan ranted about the seriousness of a high-ranking public official lying, and no one is quibbling with that, however, where are these angry people when Hillary lies her butt off or when Obama and his crew lie?

Maybe lying is okay when it furthers the soft coup against the Trump administration.

Well if this is the case , “Sullivan did approve his already planned international travel.”, then what the hell is the point of the restriction later. It sounds like just another form of punishment.

I’ve noticed quite a few MAGA Twitter users are praising Sullivan, but I have no such regard for him. He has enough evidence at hand to “compel” the prosecutors to explain why they shouldn’t be in contempt. Then,, if they try to come back with other charges it can be considered malicious.

As I noted in another article about the 1956 book “The Rape of the Mind” a confession, or guilty plea, can be accomplished in a totalitarian society, which ours is seemingly becoming.

“A fantastic thing is happening in our world. Today a man is no longer punished only for the crimes he has in fact committed. Now he may be compelled to confess to crimes that have been conjured up by his judges, who use his confession for political purposes. It is not enough for us to damn as evil those who sit in judgment. We must understand what impels the false admission of guilt; we must take another look at the human mind in all its frailty and vulnerability.
…From time immemorial tyrants and dictators have needed these “voluntary” confessions to justify their own evil deeds.
…In the third and final phase of interrogation and menticide the accused, now completely conditioned and accepting his own imposed guilt, is trained to bear false witness against himself and others. He doesn’t have to convince himself any more through autohypnosis; he only speaks “his master’s voice.” He is prepared for trial, softened completely; he becomes remorseful and willing to be sentenced. He is a baby in the hands of his inquisitors, fed as a baby and soothed by words as a baby.”

Understanding what this book describes and how it correlates to the modern system of Justice makes it required reading by all who sit in judgment of others in courts of law. It isn’t necessary to use certain extreme methods sometimes described in this book as the same can be accomplished with more “subtle” means. The Ultimate “power” an agency has, such as the FBI, can accomplish equally as much as any Totalitarian State, and even be lauded for it by well meaning individuals.

Hanson somewhat points this out with examples of current events and historical context. Those who welcome the current situation may regret it some day. This type of unchecked power cannot be easily controlled. Once such power is utilized, and supported by many, the road is then paved for increasing the sphere of incrimination. It is happening before our very eyes, today.
