We learn from this little gem, that it was FBI Peter Strzok was the man who so called “nailed” Flynn. Earlier reporters stated that the original agents who interviewed Flynn did not find enough to believe that Flynn intentionally lied. Flynn did not have the energy nor funds to mount an expensive defense. It is reported that he has already lost his house, thus accepted the plea deal.
Now we find the Judge was recused. Judge Sullivan takes over. I am adding this Update!
UPDATE: Judge a member of FISA court!
Did he approve the spying?
In fact, we know — as the Wall Street Journal noted on Saturday — that former FBI Director James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on March 2 that Flynn had not lied to the FBI, but had merely forgotten what had been said in his conversations. It is not hard to imagine that might have happened; he was on vacation in the Dominican Republic when one of the conversations allegedly took place.
But I digress -back to the story:
Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested the postponement of former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn’s sentencing.
“Due to the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” the special counsel asked the court.
The court filing states a date to sentence Flynn could not be determined by the special counsel at this time and that 90-day extension is be required.
As The Gateway Pundit reported last December, U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused from Flynn’s criminal case. Emmet G. Sullivan now oversees over the trial.
It is not clear why Contreras was recused from the case. UPDATE:
(The Judge indeed is a FISA Judge.. did he approve the FISA request?) LInk:

Last year, The Gateway Pundit asked: Was President Trump’s National Security Advisor tricked into meeting with the FBI without a lawyer?
Fox News host Sean Hannity and reporter Sara Carter have suggested Flynn may have been tricked into having the interview with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok without a lawyer.
