Federal Appeals Court Refuses to Dismiss Flynn Case

Justice Department’s request will not be followed. 

On Monday, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. announced that it would be rejecting a request to dismiss the case against Michael Flynn that was requested by the Department of Justice. Michael Flynn was President Trump’s former national security adviser and is being charged with lying to the FBI, a charge he has pled guilty to. 

The U.S. District Judge Thomas Griffith wrote a concurring opinion for the court saying, “Today we reach the unexceptional yet important conclusion that a court of appeals should stay its hand and allow the district court to finish its work rather than hear a challenge to a decision not yet made. That is a policy the federal courts have followed since the beginning of the Republic.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to guide federal judges to enact justice in the nation.
  • For the president’s administration as it continues to support law and order.
  • For God to give the Justice Department wisdom on how best to enforce the law in the future.
