Appeals Court Orders Dismissal

Developing...

Quote:
A federal appeals court has ordered the prosecution of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn to be dismissed.

In a surprise ruling, the DC circuit court of appeals overruled district judge Emmet Sullivan and has ordered him to accept the justice department’s motion to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn.

Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in 2017, but the justice department filed a motion last month to dismiss the criminal charges against him, prompting accusations of political bias.

General Flynn Case Update

Here are the articles in order.
The Judge has not tipped his hand on what he will do, but he has removed his July review from the Court docket

General Flynn Case Update – Appeals Court Orders Judge Sullivan to Dismiss Flynn Case…

The three judges on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals have approved a writ of mandamus ordering Judge Emmet Sullivan to dismiss the case against Michael Flynn.

The panel ruled 2-1, that U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan overstepped his authority in not accepting the unopposed motion and questioning prosecutors’ decision. This is a big victory for the Flynn defense team. Not sure what Sullivan will do now.

Flynn’s Ordeal is not Over Yet

Sullivan is clearly a tool of the deep state, and we must remember why he has worked so hard to string this case out for years now when any righteous, ethical judge would have tossed it out of court in a summary judgment in 2018. Sullivan’s goal is the same as the deep state’s goal – to keep this case alive, and by extension keep Flynn from telling all he knows, until after November

Explosive New FBI Notes Confirm Obama Directed Anti-Flynn Operation

Handwritten notes from fired former FBI agent Peter Strzok show that Obama himself directed key aspects of the campaign to target Flynn during a Jan. 5, 2017 meeting in the Oval Office.

Newly released notes confirm President Barack Obama’s key role in surveillance and leak operation against Michael Flynn, the incoming Trump administration national security adviser. The handwritten notes, which were first disclosed in a federal court filing made by the Department of Justice on Tuesday, show President Obama himself personally directed former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to investigate Flynn for having routine phone calls with a Russian counterpart. He also suggests they withhold information from President Trump and his key national security figures.

The unfortunate part is that Flynn will end up in Monopoly jail if the democrats run the table in November.
...do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars

Everyone saw the real democrats earlier this year and they have taken off their masks over the last few weeks.
Nancy Pelosi even went as far this week as openly accusing the GOP of murdering a counterfeiter in the streets of Minnesota.

If the democrats gain control of the government they WILL be putting their political opponents in jail.
They've already ran the IRS tax fraud gambit on their enemies - they've already tipped their hand on impeaching those they don't agree with.
They will add four more liberal activists to the new 13-Judge SCOTUS and they will put some republicans in jail...
...and Comey will be absolved of all wrong doing.

I have a time machine. I've been there. I've seen it.

I foresee (Box, you can let us know what your trip has to say about this) something along the lines of the below to be written by a couple of the Several States by the time I die...…

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Let's just hope this Great Country has the Thinkers to get on with the inevitable....

I don't even have to power up my machine to provide you with an answer; follow these instructions carefully...
-turn on your TV
-tune it to CNN, MSNBC, or ABC
-watch the lead stories
-turn off the TV before you become too depressed

The speaker of the house JUST THIS WEEK decided to accuse the GOP of murdering George Floyd.
her comments were so repulsive that a liberal talking head reporter called her on it, the speaker of the house stuck to her guns

That is what the democrats bring to the government...
...the GOP murdered a counterfeiter
...some people did some things
...defund the police
...the president belongs in jail
...eat your peas

No time machine is needed to see where the treasonous left is going when they regain full power of the government and if that isn't enough - just listen to where the loyalties of our camera seeking pop-culture retired GO's lean - not towards the best interests of a nation - but to the defense of their ego's and legacies
...then ask again about any form of government becoming destructive in the context of deriving power from the consent of the governed



Its a brave new world - good luck on your journey

I think you are talking about the documentary that chronicles the life of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho
...that is where I got the plans for the one I have been using.

The wife hated that movie; I liked it - thought it was disturbingly prophetic (probably why she hated it).

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

I never thought of it as prophetic - the movie showcased a dystopian world drowning in rampant commercialism driven by pleasure seekers - a society that has embraced anti-intellectualism - a society that has turned its back on intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, justice, and human rights...
...all brought to you by Carls Jr and Brawndo


No siree - that movie wasn't prophetic - it was just a low budget documentary film released a few years before President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho actually took office.
