    Judge's accusations mar Michael Flynn sentencing hearing

    In open court, Sullivan raised the question of whether Flynn, a retired Army three-star general with more than three decades of service, might have committed treason. He questioned whether Flynn sold out the United States. He said Flynn had served as an unregistered foreign agent (for Turkey) inside the White House.

    "Arguably, that undermines everything that this flag over here stands for," Sullivan said, gesturing toward the American flag in the courtroom, according to reporters who were present. "Arguably, you sold your country out."

    All were terribly damaging accusations, especially coming from a federal judge sitting in court. And all were false, given that Flynn did not commit treason, did not sell out the United States, and did not serve as an unregistered foreign agent in the White House. There's a reason Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller did not charge Flynn with those crimes, and the reason is he did not commit them.

    It appeared Sullivan had a momentary loss of reason or didn't have his facts straight, or both. He later walked back some of his comments, but the damage was done.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    OMG what is wrong in this country.
    To accuse a man like Flynn , a 3 star general ,with such acts in a US court because he worked for Donald trump and a POS like Mueller has set out to destroy him.
    30 years of service down the toilet because Hillary Clinton bought and paid for a Dossier filled with bullsh1t.

    This country is going to hell in a handbasket.
