(FOX NEWS) -- Former Whitewater deputy independent counsel Sol Wisenberg told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Tuesday that the Michael Flynn case judge's "highly unprecedented" move to hire a personal attorney could indicate that he's "in trouble."
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan's decision to retain high-profile attorney Beth Wilkinson comes as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals reviews Sullivan's order not to immediately grant the Justice Department's request to dismiss its case against the former national security adviser.
The appeals court directed Sullivan last week to respond to a writ of mandamus request by Flynn's lawyers by June 1, and invited the government to respond "in its discretion within the same 10-day period."
