note in the first ruling it was 2-1 with the two right wingers anointed by trump ruling for trump but notice when the full court rules, 8-2 flipping their right wing protection racket.

Appeals court rejects effort to dismiss case against Michael Flynn

Aug. 31 (UPI) -- The full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that a district court hearing on the Justice Department's effort to dismiss a criminal case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn can proceed.

Attorney General William Barr had moved to drop charges against Flynn in May, which were connected to false statement charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.


Flynn had initially pleaded guilty in 2017 to a false-statement charge, but later hired a new defense team and sought to withdraw the plea deal. President Donald Trump weighed in publicly in support of Flynn before Barr stepped in to drop the case, citing new evidence.

District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan balked initially at dropping the case, ordering a hearing on the matter. Flynn's legal team asked the appeals court to force Sullivan to drop the case without the hearing. A three-judge panel from the court agreed with the Justice Department 2-1 before the full court said they wanted to hear the case. The full court ruled 8-2 in Sullivan's favor.

Judge Thomas Griffith said it its opinion that it was premature for the appeals court to intervene before Sullivan held his hearing and made a decision.

"Today we reach the unexceptional yet important conclusion that a court of appeals should stay its hand and allow the district court to finish its work rather than hear a challenge to a decision, not yet made," Griffith said. "That is a policy the federal courts have followed since the beginning of the Republic."

Judges Karen Henderson and Neomi Rao, who ruled in favor of the Justice Department as part of the earlier three-judge panel, filed separate dissents.
when good people stay silent the right wing are the only ones heard.
