Reacting to Judge Emmet Sullivan’s tongue-lashing of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in court Tuesday, former FBI special agent and current CNN analyst Asha Rangappa had a straightforward read: “This judge don’t play.”

Referring to Flynn’s claims in a sentencing memo that FBI agents who interview him last year may have acted inappropriately, Rangappa said: “You don’t make those kinds of claims in a court document, alleging serious malfeasance, misconduct by the FBI — that calls into question your plea deal, your plea agreement — and then not expect the judge to, A, question you about it, and then, when you backtrack, to get, I think, understandably upset.”
