This just came across the wires – will have an update later in the day.
A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered a judge to grant the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) unusual move to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
A three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals approved Flynn’s petition to intervene in the case after a district court judge had tapped an outside counsel to argue against the DOJ’s move.
Here is the text of the order from the 2-1 decision by the 3-judge panel:
“ORDERED that Flynn’s petition for a writ of mandamus be granted in part; the District Court is directed to grant the government’s Rule 48(a) motion to dismiss; and the District Court’s order appointing an amicus is hereby vacated as moot, in accordance with the opinion of the court filed herein this date,” the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled on Wednesday.
Then there’s this… – New notes taken by Peter Strzok on January 4, 2017 have just been made public, and they directly implicate both Biden and Obama in the framing of Flynn:
