DC Circuit Court of Appeals Orders Judge Sullivan to DROP Case Against LtGen Michael T. Flynn

DC Circuit Court of Appeals Orders Judge Sullivan to DROP Case Against LtGen Michael T. Flynn

June 24, 2020 – The Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has just granted the Writ of Mandamus filed by Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell. The Court ordered Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to drop the case completely. This comes after exculpatory notes written by biased and corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok were uncovered by U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen.

Here is the Order:

As you can see, the Order has been granted.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton has done most of the heavy lifting in trying to obtain documents related to government corruption in the Russia hoax and he celebrates the Order:

President Trump tweeted his support for General Flynn.

CBS is attempting to spin the news slightly to make it appear that it could potentially be politically motivated and that the DOJ doesn’t want to explain its reasoning.

In an article, they state:

A panel of three judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit granted Flynn’s motion to force U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan to drop the case in an order on Wednesday. The ruling was 2 to 1, with one judge dissenting.

The Justice Department moved to dismiss the case against Flynn in May, asking Sullivan to drop the criminal charge despite Flynn’s guilty plea. Sullivan declined to immediately rule on the motion, and instead indicated he would review the decision and appoint a retired judge as a ‘friend of the court’ to argue against the government. Flynn filed an emergency appeal to the D.C. Circuit to force Sullivan to accept the motion and drop the charge.

In an opinion explaining the ruling, Circuit Judge Neomi Rao, who was nominated to the bench by President Trump, argued that forcing the Justice Department to explain its reasoning for seeking to drop the case would infringe on the authority of the executive branch.

‘In this case, the district court’s actions will result in specific harms to the exercise of the Executive Branch’s exclusive prosecutorial power,’ Rao wrote. ‘The contemplated proceedings would likely require the Executive to reveal the internal deliberative process behind its exercise of prosecutorial discretion, interfering with the Article II charging authority.’

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his conversations with the Russian ambassador before Mr. Trump took office. He was ousted as national security adviser just weeks into the Trump administration. – CBS News

It was actually the exact opposite. It was the Obama administration that engaged in politically motivated attacks and investigations. Mr. Flynn was targeted, they tried to frame him, they looked for anything they could find, they went after his son, and his newly-born grandchild.

We have seen the new information that the Department of Justice has uncovered, and it is damning for the Prosecution.

Mr. Fitton explains why Lt. General Michael Flynn was targeted by members of the Obama administration. He had blown the whistle on their corrupt activity and they were concerned he would learn of other illegal things they were doing.

Newsweek has published a very fair article on the dropping of the case.

This is incredible, as it exposes just how irregular the Flynn case was. This case appears to have been run from the top down, with Obama calling the treasonous shots.

Breitbart has published an article celebrating the DC Circuit Court’s Order.

Researcher Dawson Fields says he sees this as a partial win for the corrupt actors at the Department of Justice:

The actions of the prosecutors in the case were totally egregious, not at all what anyone who has experience in the legal profession would deem “regular.”

This gives the appearance that some in the DOJ are still attempting to protect the corrupt prosecutor Van Grack and the Special Counsel Office.

The involvement of Joe Biden in this case exposes the political nature of it; this was a political persecution of Michael Flynn, an attempted lynching of a three-star general. Someone who served our nation with honor and distinction. Joe Biden on the other hand has spent most of his entire life in government with nothing to show for it except personal wealth gained by unknown means.

Investigative journalist John Solomon, who has been following and accurately reporting on the case from the beginning, has published an article on the latest court filing.

Joe Biden very clearly lied about his own involvement in and personal knowledge of the Flynn case. Will anything be done about this? Will he be called to testify about why he lied?

Not only does this expose how the media gives Democrats softball questions, and then never follow up when an absurd response is received. It also demonstrates Joe Biden’s ablility to lie right through his teeth without a care.

Catherine Herridge has been reporting on the case, correctly observing that this Order brings the case closer to an end. But it is not quite over yet. Judge Sullivan most likely is being advised and will not just drop the case without a fight.

The Lawfare side of the militant Left wing is already crafting the “En Banc Review” argument for Sullivan. I am sure this is the strategy he will put forward. The Left, if nothing else, are predictable.

Investigative journalist Brian Cates is also picking up on this.

Judge Sullivan will most likely seek the “En Banc Review” via Judge John Gleeson.

The recent revelations of misconduct in the Flynn case finally has spurred FBI Director Christopher Wray to request an internal FBI review of the case.

This internal audit of the Flynn case seems to have stemmed from evidence uncovered by U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen.

It is definitely possible that some of the people involved in the misconduct may have flipped and are willing to testify against other coup plotters.

QAnon has posted today about the latest developments in the Flynn case.

Here QAnon is referencing the Techno Fog tweet with the Strzok handwritten notes that expose their criminality, and he says they were careless because they never thought Hillary Clinton would lose the 2016 election.

As General Flynn tweeted in May, will Justice finally be RESTORED?

This is HUGE. Was the direction of this surveillance operation by OBAMA and BIDEN the real reason the Flynn case stayed open?

This is Treason. There is no question regarding its exact definition. It was a weaponization of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) to go after a political opponent. We have also seen how this lawlessness has emboldened these corrupt officials. They are in open defiance of the law, of due process, of proper use of the law enforcement apparatus. This shameful attempt to frame a three-star general will go down in history as one of the worst cases of Treason and corruption in American political history.

General Flynn has had his name dragged through the mud, and has been bankrupted by this legal saga. His family has been smeared in the press, and he has been demonized and accused of being a traitor to the country he so proudly served in uniform for 33 years. The loss of his family home, the nights of constant worry about the effect on his large and distinguished family, his children and their newborn son, terrified the FBI would next arrest their son. That kind of suffering cannot be assuaged, ever. The loss of reputation, friends, colleagues and potential future business opportunities cannot be understated. The looming black cloud hovering above him for nearly four years now must be removed.  The Department of Justice still has a long way to go towards making this right.
