Seems that the judge involved in the case , where Flynn admitted he committed crimes , won’t let the former Trump National Security advisor off the hook , like Trump’s Attorney General has tried to do….
The judge just had other judges on the full Appellate Court cover his back….
Oh, and the full court says Flynn and Barr can’t switch judges either….
In an 8-to-2 ruling, the court denied Flynn’s request, backed by the Justice Department, to shut down Sullivan’s planned review and his appointment of a retired federal judge to argue against the government’s position.
The decision by the full court reverses a ruling by a three-judge panel of the same court that ordered Sullivan to immediately close the case.
Judge Thomas Griffith said it would be premature for the appeals court to force Sullivan’s hand before he had rendered 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 wrote in a statement concurring with the court’s unsigned opinion. “That is a policy the federal courts have followed since the beginning of the Republic.”
The court also rejected Flynn’s attempt to have his case reassigned to a different judge, finding “no basis for disqualifying” Sullivan….
They keep this up and Trump IS gonna have to pardon Flynn or things may end up with a Biden Justice Dept. and Flynn is goner then….
