The years-long case against former Trump national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn continues despite the Department of Justice announcing weeks ago that it wants it thrown it — but the end is near. Keeping the case alive is Federal District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has refused the Justice Department’s request to immediately dismiss the case, instead deciding to first reexamine the case with the help of retired judge John Gleeson.

“If Judge Sullivan’s decision is anything short of what the parties sought, this court will have a chance to review it, without writing on a blank slate,” said Wilkinson, as reported by NBC News. “There is no reason for this court to enter the fray now.”
Except for the fact that a man's life is continuing to be destroyed while Judge Sullivan and his lawyers continue to play games.
