U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan in Washington will return to the national spotlight Tuesday when he sentences Michael Flynn, a former lieutenant general who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, for lying to federal investigators in their probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
