D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Agrees to Hear Case on DOJ Decision to Drop Flynn Charges
On Thursday, the U.S. Appeals Court for the District of Columbia vacated its ruling last month to dismiss the case against former National Security advisor General Michael Flynn.
A majority of the court agreed to an en banc rehearing of the case, so instead of having a three-judge panel like the last time the case was heard, all eleven of the court’s judges will oversee the case, according to National Review.
From Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell:
#BREAKING: The DC Cir just granted rehearing en banc of the mandamus in the #Flynn case. Oral arguments are 9:30 a.m. August 11. WOW!@realDonaldTrump@GenFlynn @BarbaraRedgate @JosephJFlynn1 @GoJackFlynn @JennaEllisEsq @lofly727 pic.twitter.com/2aBhzOuBT6

Originally, the three-judge panel voted 2-1 to order District Court judge Emmett Sullivan to dismiss the case against Flynn. In response, Sullivan appealled to the Circuit Court for an en banc hearing.
The oral arguments are scheduled for August 11.
It’s become incredibly obvious that Sullivan is acting as an enemy of Flynn, as opposed to the impartial judge his position requires him to be. We should hope that, in the end, Flynn receives the justice he deserves.
