[Ed. – Two applications of justice in one week. The second is here. What’s the world coming to? ]
The persecution of General Michael Flynn continues today after the full D.C. Court of Appeals decided to rehear the case for dismissal of his prosecution. The new hearing is set for August 11.
“Upon consideration of the petition for reaching en band, the responses thereto, and the vote in favor of rehearing en band by a majority of the judges eligible to participate it is ordered that this case be reheard by the court sitting en banc,” the Court announced.
In June, a panel of three judges for the court determined in a 2-1 vote that Judge Emmitt Sullivan had an obligation to follow an order from the Department of Justice and dismiss the case against General Flynn. Sullivan refused and asked for the full court to rehear the case. Today, he was granted that hearing and the order to dismiss has been vacated.
