Nearly 1,200 former federal prosecutors and "former high-ranking supervisory officials" with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) signed their names to a brief calling for the judge overseeing the case against former national security advisor Michael Flynn to use his full discretion and to not simply roll over to accommodate the current DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case.

Filed on Wednesday with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the brief implores Judge Emmet Sullivan to conduct "a searching review of the government's request" in order "to protect the public interest in the even-handed enforcement of our laws." The signatures themselves went on for 45 pages.

"I used to be a public defender, which means my job was to go up against prosecutors, not to represent them," the brief's author Harvard Law Professor Andrew Crespo said in a statement. "But the rule of law and the norm against political interference at the Department of Justice need defending, too."

The aforementioned Professor Andrew Crespo wrote:


Our conclusion is clear: Sullivan does not merely have the authority to review the department's motion to dismiss. As courts have described it, he has a "duty" to ensure that the dismissal is in “the public interest” and is not “tainted by impropriety” or "bad faith." And if, after careful review, he finds that the motion is in fact tainted, his duty is equally clear: He must deny it.
