That should be that but with this judge who knows.
Someone will goose him to appeal to SCOTUS. Anything to drag this out.
So we’re on to the next level...there’s no way that the Swamp Creatures will go away quietly on this.After all,the campaign is now in high gear!
If Flynn’s lawyer are smart they already have paperwork for SCOTUS ready and will try to get an emergency hearing, which the court will likely refuse to hear leaving the onus on the Appellate court and the decision final.
Good, this will be headline news tonight on all the news casts /s
One must ask, “Why was Flynn put under a gag order after filing a guilty plea?”
What happens, upon dismissal when that gag order is lifted?
Can Sullivan dismiss and then “seal” the case, further extending the gag-order?
Finally, what is it that Flynn COULD say that has so many itching to keep him quiet.
Ruling was 2-1, Henderson and Rao ruling for Flynn. Wilkins dissented.
The ruling is only partially for
, as the appeals court ordered:
Sullivan to dismiss the case
Gleesons appointment as amicus immediately vacated. Bye Felicia!
However they declined to grant the request to kick Judge Sullivan off the case immediately
who would file the appeal? The Judge is not a party, he has no standing.
Yes, but this is such a strange case that I would not be surprised if somehow he could request an En Banc hearing with the entire panel. Why not? Everything else in this case is unprecedented it seems.
I hope its over.
The 1 Dem judge on the 3 judge panel voted not to dismiss. It figures.
Judge Sullivan has a lot to answer for. Don’t let him off until there are some answers.
I don’t believe he has standing to appeal.
Sullivan’s uncontrollable hubris results in the unintended consequence of making him look the fool.
If Sullivan had just done the DOJs bidding the Dems would be able to howl that Barr was compromised and Trump’s lackey. By having 3 Judges,one a Dem appointment, come to the conclusion that Sullivan overstepped his judicial bounds, all eyes are now focused on his lack of judicial temperament.
They are very smart. And I believe this is done.
With a directed verdict, removing Sullivan was moot.
