U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan asked the entire U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to review the June 24 decision that directed him to drop the Flynn case.The Justice Department sought to dismiss the case against Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, following pressure from Trump and his allies, leading to criticism that Attorney General William Barr was using his office to help the president’s friends.

Sullivan refused to immediately sign off on the dismissal, instead appointing a retired judge to argue in favor of denying the Justice Department’s request.Sullivan has said he cannot serve as a “rubber stamp” and must carefully review the “unprecedented” dismissal request.

Last month, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit directed Sullivan to grant the department’s motion to clear Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty.Sullivan’s attorneys told the appeals court the panel decision marked a “dramatic break from precedent” that “threatens to turn ordinary judicial process upside down.”

Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, was one of several former Trump aides charged under former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that detailed Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.Flynn twice pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russia’s then-ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

He then switched lawyers to pursue a new scorched-earth tactic that accused the FBI of entrapping him, and asked the judge to dismiss the charge.Reporting by Jan Wolfe; Editing by Leslie Adler, Richard Chang and Tom Brown Read more: Reuters Top News »

Kudlow defends Trump's coronavirus executive actions against accusations they are ineffective

White House National Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow appeared on ABC's 'This Week.'

Trump 2020 Has the Justice Department AND the CDC both gone Stone Deaf to The Trumpmeister Better change the batteries in those calculators.... Flynn knows why this was done to him & soon America will know why. What is done in darkness will be brought to light. He knows something. Lock him up! Flynn should be behind bars. I mean in jail.

What a cry baby! 👶 Obviously the judge is not fit for duty as he's thrown the scales of justice out the window. Really amazing. Liberals just do not give up. This judge is embarrassing himself. This is not hard. Flynn should never have been interviewed by FBI in the first place. Should have been advised that he was the target by FBI. The Rules were not followed. Let’s move on

It shoul not be dismissed Flynn is guilty of treason, & need to go to jail, this corruption has been long enough, if anybody else they would be in jail. But he has money for fancy lawyers ! If you're innocent and the govt comes after you, game over. Sure you may win, but after you're broke, wife's gone, house gone, can't afford SPAM and living in a van down by the river. Time for legal reform. If u are rich, courts are just part of life & manageable, if not, F'ed
