President Donald Trump on Wednesday hailed a federal appeals court’s ruling to allow the Department of Justice to drop the charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
A group of three judges on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan to dismiss the charges against Flynn, who had previously pleaded guilty to two counts of lying to federal investigators. The panel ruled 2-1 that Sullivan had insufficient cause to question the Justice Department.
“Great! Appeals Court Upholds Justice Departments Request To Drop Criminal Case Against General Michael Flynn!” Trump tweeted just after news of the ruling broke.
He later added that former FBI Director James Comey and others, including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, and special counsel Robert Mueller should apologize to Flynn.
“Is James Comey and his band of Dirty Cops going to apologize to General Michael Flynn (and many others) for what they have done to ruin his life? What about Robert Mueller and his Angry Democrat Cronies - Are they going to say, SO SORRY? And what about Obama & Biden?”
