When Michael Flynn walks into court today for his final sentencing hearing, a lifetime of respected national service will hang in the balance on what is said and what occurs. I am not speaking of Flynn but of District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. There is no real question about the dismissal of Flynn’s charge of lying to federal investigators. The only question is whether, shortly before a presidential election, Sullivan will use the hearing as a forum for injudicious commentary.
