An appeals court has ordered a federal judge to drop the case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled against U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision to use his discretion and overlook the Justice Department’s motion to clear Flynn.

The ruling is a win not only for Flynn but for the Trump administration as well. (CNBC)

The appeals court ruling came in response to a request from Flynn’s lawyers, after Washington, D.C., federal district court Judge Emmet Sullivan did not promptly grant the Justice Department’s motion seeking to dismiss the case.

Instead, Sullivan had appointed a lawyer to make arguments to him about why the case should not be tossed out.

Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.

I wish it would be that easy. The problem is, they are only doing the biding of the Deep State, NWO, Globalists, who fund them. As Trump said at his Tulsa Rally the other day, he had no idea the swamp was this deep. And the other problem is they have deceived almost half the Country. But thank God, we have Trump there to fight for us.

it’s about time, I would have like to see the appeals court fine this filthy Dirty Bastard demoncrat judge and remove Sullivan from the bench, but we will leave this up to Graham in the senate, but knowing that fake phony rino he will do nothing.

Youi got that right….Graham becomes conservative at the end of his term, and pretends to be what he is not. But the day after he was re-elected this term, he went from conservative back to RINO in 1.2 seconds. He is ready to promote hiring more foreigners because he thinks they would help out the economy….. So where are Americans supposed to work? No one votes for Graham but people who have him on the their payroll to get special favors done, and Democrats….

I agree with you. Graham is nothing but a RINO look at who his best friend was another RINO who departed this earth. Graham ‘s hands are just as dirty as McStain’s were and he is a typical corrupted politician who throws bones to his constituents every time he is up for re election. Wake up and vote these RINO’s out!!

Bravo; I second the praise of Sidney Powell. She came in after Eric Holder’s firm, Cobington, ‘represented’ him at the beginning, if represented is the right word for bad advice at a high cost.
