WaPo reports Judge Emmet Sullivan has hired high-profile D.C. lawyer Beth Wilkinson to help him respond to the appeals court order that he explain his conduct in the Flynn case.

Judge Emmet Sullivan has been ordered by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to explain his actions In the Michael Flynn case.

Sullivan also has opened up the court’s docket to anyone who wants to file an amicus brief, which numerous anti-Trump people and groups have bragged they will do.
