George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley warned Wednesday that Judge Emmet Sullivan might be overstepping his bounds.
Sullivan, who is presiding over the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn, responded to Attorney General William Barr’s call for dismissal by appointing retired Judge John Gleeson to rebut Barr’s argument and potentially find a case against Flynn for perjury.
[…] Turley, who recently appeared before Congress as an expert witness in President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearings, voiced his concerns on Twitter. He began by suggesting that the “threat of a judicial charge” alone could have serious implications going forward.
