(Liberty Bell) – The Deep State absolutely can’t stand that General Michael Flynn has slipped through their fingers.
Flynn, who was the first victim of the ruthless Deep State assault on President Donald Trump’s administration, has been locked in a legal battle for years that just won’t end, even with the full support of the Justice Administration and increasing evidence that the FBI had no business investigating him in the first place.
On Monday, Flynn’s legal team filed court documents opposing the request by the judge overseeing his case that a full panel of judges be allowed to hear briefings and arguments on a pending motion to dismiss the case against the former national security adviser, Just the News reports.
The judge in question, Clinton-appointed Emmet Sullivan, made the request on July 9 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
This came after a three-judge panel ruled in June that the federal courts need to accept the request from Attorney General Bill Barr to drop the Justice Department case.
Sullivan has been fighting this tooth and nail.
“No federal circuit has countenanced rehearing of a mandamus on petition by a district judge,” Flynn’s legal team argued in the 29-page request filed in the same federal appeals court.
“Judge Sullivan has no cognizable interest in the case. Rehearing should be denied because the panel properly applied the longstanding use of mandamus to which General Flynn is clearly entitled.”
Previously, Flynn had agreed to plead guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian ambassador during the transition period between the 2016 election and President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
However, following the release of previously classified documents that suggest the FBI mishandled the case, the decorated retired Army lieutenant general withdrew his plea.
He also fired his former legal team and hired a new one, who has been fighting fiercly for the full corruption of the federal case against their client to be revealed and his name to be cleared.
