Mike Flynn pleaded guilty to what was obviously a nonsense charge in order to keep Mueller’s gestapo from going after his son. But the sentencing hearing in December became a fiasco when the judge overseeing the case, Emmett Sullivan, basically told Flynn that he was going to ignore the Mueller team’s recommendation an order Flynn to prison. Now we’re getting close to a re-do of that and Flynn has suddenly fired his attorneys.

I am not a lawyer so I won’t even try to explain what is happening here beyond noting that it is very difficult, bordering on impossible, to withdraw a guilty plea that has been accepted by a court.
