Agreed, and that was one of the main topics of my discussion with on his podcast this past week: .

This is false on the facts and wrong on the law. But it’s getting a lot of attention from Trump supporters, which gives people like Senator Mastriano an incentive to deceive them. He’s lying to them because it’s what they want to hear. Our nation pays the price, but he should.

“It is highly unlikely — I am tempted to say inconceivable — that the Supreme Court would agree to hear that case.” I agree with on this point.

Jenna Ellis is either incompetent or a liar. The Third Circuit, and Trump appointee Judge Bibas, are not “activist judicial machinery.” And the Supreme Court will not take a case affirming the denial of leave to amend a frivolous complaint.

“Fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.” - Judge Stephanos Bibas

Sidney Powell's "kraken" complaint is more like a baby shrimp. It isn't worth the paper it's printed on. But she has misled millions of people into believing that it will change the outcome of the election. Spoiler alert: It won't.

It depends on the wording of the pardon.

There is a Supreme Court case that says that accepting a pardon is an acknowledgement of guilt. You can expect Flynn to maintain his innocence publicly, which would not ordinarily subject him to liability. Obviously lying to a court or to law enforcement about the matter would.

If Flynn didn't accept the pardon, there was a risk that Judge Sullivan wouldn't reach a decision until after January 20, 2021, the date Biden takes office.

This renders the proceedings before Judge Sullivan moot, and ensures that the DOJ won't reverse Barr's decision not to prosecute Flynn after Biden is president.
