Michael Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell on Tuesday filed an emergency writ of mandamus to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals seeking the immediate removal of Judge Emmet Sullivan from the case -- and saying that under appellate precedent set by the "Fokker Services" case, Sullivan or his replacement must dismiss the prosecution, as the Justice Department has requested.

Some timing - this Motion has been granted by Judge Sullivan on the day Flynn's lawyers file the writ of mandamus.— Techno Fog (@Techno_Fog) May 19, 2020
