Judge in Flynn case invites amicus curiae filings to oppose dismissal

As far as I can tell, requesting amicus briefs before ruling in a criminal case is an extremely unusual thing to do. He's basically proposing that someone other than DOJ should prosecute the case, if such a motion is filed and granted. That's absurd.

This judge shook things up with respect to prosecutorial abuse in the past, but my feeling since then is that he has been compromised somehow by the Deep State. The ruling is getting a lot of criticism, including planned ethics charges (not from Flynn or his lawyer, to be clear), in addition to the formal opposition brief from Flynn. If he actually refuses to allow DOJ to dismiss the charges, I can't see that decision surviving appeal.
