General Flynn’s sentencing delayed again as calls ramp up for Trump to pardon. What’s going on here?

A federal judge delayed the sentencing of former Trump National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn – again – prompting a call from Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton to “shut it down.”

Fitton attended Flynn’s hearing before Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on Tuesday morning at U.S. District Court in Washington D.C.

Fitton called on President Trump to pardon the retired Lieutenant and only former Trump White House official to be charged in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“I’m monitoring the Mueller investigation and here to watch a miscarriage of justice continue,” Fitton told Newsmax as he left the hearing, “I don’t think Mike Flynn lied. I think he’s a target of Obama’s holdover Justice Department—[former FBI Director James] Comey, [former Assistant Attorney General Sally] Yates, and Mueller.”

Back in May, Mueller requested that Flynn’s sentencing be delayed for two months and requested a delay again that irked the judge. He ordered everyone to appear on Tuesday, which was Flynn’s first court appearance in seven months.

Flynn, who resigned from the White House in February 2017, pleaded guilty in Mueller’s Russia probe to making false statements to the FBI. But discrepancies and contradictions have plagued the case, with fired FBI chief James Comey even saying in March 2017 that he dd not believe Flynn intentionally lied about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

“Gen. Flynn is eager to proceed,” Flynn’s attorney Robert Kelner told Sullivan, but the judge announced the next hearing would be in August.

“Have a nice day,” Sullivan said, closing the proceedings Tuesday which lasted about ten minutes, according to Newsmax.

Demonstrators cheered Flynn as he left the courtroom, holding ‘Clear Flynn Now’ signs outside of the federal building, protesting Mueller’s probe.

But there were others in the crowd calling the retired Lieutenant General who served in the U.S. Army for 33 years a traitor.

But it seems people are fed up with the corruption and the hypocrisy, coming out in defense of Flynn and speaking up on social media about the way he has been treated.
