Federal Judge Delays Sentencing For General Mike Flynn AGAIN
The Los Angeles Times reported:
As part of Flynn’s plea deal, he agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors and his sentencing has been delayed. The special counsel’s office and Flynn’s lawyers recently asked the probation office to prepare a pre-sentence report, a standard step that normally involves an investigation into a convicted criminal’s background to document extenuating circumstances that might lessen the sentence, or a criminal history to justify a heavier sentence.
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan called for the hearing to determine why the court shouldn’t follow its standard practice of preparing a report and scheduling a sentencing date at the same time. The probation office is already overworked, Sullivan said Tuesday.
Flynn’s lawyers and prosecutors agreed to delay preparation of the pre-sentence report, although Flynn’s lead attorney, Robert Kelner, emphasized that he hopes to move quickly toward resolution.
“Gen. Flynn is eager to proceed … when that is possible,” he told the judge.

A federal judge Tuesday ordered former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to be relocated to a jail in Alexandria, Virginia.
Judge T. S. Ellis III, who is overseeing Mr. Manafort’s Virginia case said the move was necessary so he can more easily communicate with his lawyers.
Mr. Manafort is currently incarcerated to the Northern Neck Jail, which is about two hours away from his Washington, D.C.-based attorneys.
Judge Ellis said Mr. Manafort must be moved to “ensure the defendant has access to his counsel and can adequately prepare his defense.”
The request to relocate Mr. Manafort was one of several motions made last week by his attorneys. They also asked for the trial be moved until the fall and relocated to Roanoke, Virginia, arguing Northern Virginia “skews left” too much for Mr. Manafort to receive a fair trial.
WOW! MORGAN FREEMAN: ‘ JAIL HILLARY CLINTON TO RESTORE TRUST IN GOVERNMENT…TRUMP MUST MAKE IT HAPPEN’
- Freeman: “Hillary should be in jail for her unlawful deeds and President Trump should absolutely, absolutely make sure this happens to send the very strong message that no-one, and I mean no-one, is above the law in the United States of America,”
( yournewswire by Baxter Dmitry ) The best way to restore public faith in government institutions is to “send Hillary to prison“, according to Hollywood icon Morgan Freeman, who warns that unless the former First Lady’s crimes are seen to be punished, “everyday Americans will forever know, deep down, that there is one law for those with money and power, and another for the rest of us.”
“Hillary should be in jail for her unlawful deeds and President Trump should absolutely, absolutely make sure this happens to send the very strong message that no-one, and I mean no-one, is above the law in the United States of America,” Morgan Freeman said in New York while promoting National Geographic’s new docu-series The Story of Us.
Responding to a question about why he thinks President Trump has not yet fulfilled this particular campaign promise, Freeman laughed and said and looked up at the heavens before saying, “Goddamnit man, you were elected for this very reason, lock that bitch up!”
After being accused of political incorrectness, Freeman laughed again, saying “It’s all about being loving and caring these days, isn’t it?“
“The most loving and caring thing we as a society can do for Hillary Clinton is lock her up where she can get professional and institutional help and prevent her hurting herself or anyone else.”
The veteran actor, who remains as professionally active as at any point in his long career, cannot be accused of partisan bullying. It appears the 80-year-old star is simply a straight shooter who would prefer politicians and public figures are held to the same standards as everyone else.
Yep! Lock them up! Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend with some hard hitting advice on how to deal with White House leakers : “You start putting a few people in jail, you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
Newt Gingrich: “I wrote my newsletter this week on the very real notion that we should lock people up who leak secrets. Let me draw the distinction; there’s political garbage from people who go across to the Starbucks near the White House and they sit and they tell insider stories. That’s unfortunate you ought to fire them if you can find them.
But that’s not the same as violating the Secrecy Acts. People who violate the Secrecy Acts ought to go to jail. What happened with the Manchester information for example, after the bombing in Manchester, undermined the British investigation, weakened our relationship to our allies and it’s dangerous.
Whoever leaked that should go to jail. You start putting a few people in jail, and you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
( Daily Mail ) Most of the 230 rioters arrested after violent protests erupted in Washington D.C. following Donald Trump‘s inauguration will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said on Saturday.
The charge carries a punishment of up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.
Thousand of protesters launched a violent rampage just blocks away from the White House as anti-Trump demonstrators smashed store windows, set fire to cars and threw bricks at police.
