Emmet Sullivan—aka the eccentric federal judge who’s been fanatically performing nonconsensual mouth-to-mouth on the Flynn prosecution—can retire from the bench when the case ends, then walk right into an absurdly-high-paying do-little partnership at a DOJ/Deep State-aligned law firm or DNC-support organization.
Two such possibilities immediately spring to mind: FusionGPS and Covington & Burling LLP, which originally represented Flynn. Eric Holder also landed a revolving-door partnership thereafter he declined to prosecute the firm’s banking clients in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis.
Many lawyers and judges likely anticipate these contingencies too. Few, however, are likely to talk about them, let alone publish an article like this one. Their profession is highly image-conscious and the truth is unflattering. Thankfully though, despite the media’s undying loyalty to the shyster brigade, more people are coming to see them for what they are.
