John Gleeson on June 10 filed a brief arguing the government’s motion to dismiss charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn should be dismissed. Gleeson, a former U.S. district judge, was appointed by the court as an amicus curiae on May 13, 2020, to present arguments in opposition to the government’s motion to dismiss. In the brief, Gleeson argues “the Government’s statement of reasons for seeking dismissal is pretextual” and “there is clear evidence of a gross abuse of prosecutorial power.”
