Judge Sullivan orders complete review of FBI evidence over a single stickynote
In the Flynn case, the judge has ordered a complete review along with transcripts of all handwritten notes. His reasoning is that a few documents, investigators left a sticky notes, obscuring a date. The error seems inconsequential ("January 5th" versus "January 4-5th").
However, it seems obvious to me that Sullivan is basically just delaying to get past the election at this point. Although he set a Monday deadline, it seems impossible to verify all documentary evidence within that timeframe.
His sweeping order might conceivably be appropriate if the government was seeking to prosecute Flynn. But since the government is seeking to drop the prosecution, and Flynn does not object, this decision can only impose more unnecessary delay in the administration of justice.
