General Michael Flynn has had one tumultuous ride as of late, as he battles the Deep State of Washington DC.
It all began when FBI agents interviewed Flynn as part of the Robert Mueller-led “RussiaGate” investigation, spurred forward by the ridiculous and unverified rumors of the Steele Dossier. During that interview, Flynn unwittingly lied to the FBI, and the former national security advisor was soon faces charges on account of those mistruths.
Weeks ago, handwritten notes made by the interviewing FBI agents were declassified, and revealed that the interrogators had openly discussed tricking Flynn into lying in order to charge him. That prompted the Department of Justice to drop all charges against him. The judge in the case then attempted to prolong Flynn’s freedom by allowing amicus briefs, but that, too, failed to jail the highly decorated military man.
Flynn believed that he was then free. But the Deep State had other ideas.
A federal appeals court on Thursday tossed out its order that a trial court judge dismiss the criminal case against former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn, and said it will rehear arguments on the issue.
The ruling is a blow to the retired Army lieutenant general and the Justice Department, which has asked the trial judge to drop the charge.
As of this writing, neither the White House nor Flynn’s lawyers have publicly commented on the news.
