Arguments Before D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Dismissal of Charges Against Flynn
Aug. 11, 2020 (EIRNS)—After a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan to grant the U.S. government’s motion to dismiss the charges against President Donald Trump’s first National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Sullivan requested an en banc hearing before the entire court, comprised of 11 judges. The lawyers for Flynn (Sidney Powell) and Sullivan made four hours of arguments before the court, which will issue its ruling at a later time.
If they find in Flynn’s favor, Judge Sullivan will have to dismiss the case. If they find in Sullivan’s favor, he will be able to hold a hearing on arguments for and against granting the dismissal.
At its heart, this is not a legal issue. It is a political farce to continue to drag through the mud and threaten with prison the top-level intelligence official in the Trump Administration who was not part of The Swamp, and who had a keen interest—and the know-how—to overhaul the intelligence community.
Some supporters of Flynn have asked Trump to intercede in his case, as Trump did in the case of Roger Stone, but Trump has said that he thinks Flynn will succeed in clearing his name through the legal system.
