    And, regarding withdrawing the guilty plea, not only "can" he do, there is a specific federal procedure for doing so even after the court accepts the plea but prior to imposing sentencing... see at 14:50 in the video below.

    The third-party, non-party, hostile pseudo-prosecutor, amicus Gleeson submitted his briefing to the District Court today. And yes, it's as bad as you might imagine. It's like a #NeverTrump Thesis paper.

    It's basically the legal-brief version of Orange Man Bad. IANAL, but based on my reading, there is nothing at all in the brief that justifies the court to deny the unopposed motion to dismiss with prejudice. It claims that DOJ's actions in dismissing the case are politically motivated and politically improper - but the courts have no constitutionally enumerated authority to act on the basis of political impropriety. Prior case law indicates that the appropriate remedy for political impropriety is political retribution.

    In other words, Gleeson is the textbook embodiment of the Court attempting to sally forth in search of wrongs to right - precisely the judicial action proscribed by SCOTUS, in a 9-0 decision written by none other than Ruth Bader Ginsberg, in Sineneng-Smith:

    In short: “[C]ourts are essentially passive instruments of government.” ...They “do not, or should not, sally forth each day looking for wrongs to right. [They] wait for cases to come to[them], and when [cases arise, courts] normally decide only questions presented by the parties.”
    If Sullivan uses anything in this obvious political screed masquerading as a legal brief to deny the motion, it will be clear, reversible error. Flynn is going to walk; they know it, and this is their last-gasp attempt to score political points against Trump.

    Oh, and for good measure, the brief was co-authored by none other than David O'Neill. Who is David O'Neill? Oh, he's only counsel for Sally Yates, who happens to be a material witness regarding DOJ misconduct with respect to Flynn and the Carter Page FISA warrants. No conflict of interest there...

    A detailed review of who is married, related, represents whom, not to mention has or had affairs with, between those in DC including those that cover them as media is so incestuous it is beyond belief. You know, kinda like a bunch of phones requested by an investigation just magically and accidentally got cleared.

    Yes, Weismann and his gang "accidentally" memory wiping their iPhones (in Weismann's case, not once, but twice) directly relates to Government action against Carter Page and General Flynn.
