I was just watching “The Joe Pags Show” on television. I heard something much like this about the Flynn sentencing today (I paraphrase):
Judge to Flynn: “In all my years on the bench I’ve never accepted a guilty plea from someone who wasn’t guilty. You take three months to go figure this out/think this over.” (As I said — I paraphrase)
I think this is about exactly what a caller reported was said at that sentencing.
Most of the previous reports I had read said things like this: “The judge was giving all the signs that he was going to sentence Flynn to prison time. Gave him a chance to postpone to maximize his cooperation.”
What I heard on “The Joe Pags Show says something QUITE DIFFERENT.
