A Washington D.C. Court of Appeals denied Michael Flynn’s motion to dismiss the zombie charges of lying to the FBI against him, keeping judicial proceedings ongoing even after the Department of Justice has stated its intent to drop the prosecution of the retired general and former White House National Security Advisor.
The denial of Flynn’s writ of mandamus to replace Judge Emmet Sullivan and immediately end the trial proceedings places the trial back into the hands of the Clinton-appointed Democrat judge.
Sullivan is attempting to begin proceedings in which a private, retired judge will testify about the decision of the DOJ to drop charges against Flynn, a decision that was made after extensive misconduct on the part of the FBI in hopes of incriminating Flynn was revealed.
The Department of Justice is still unwilling to prosecute Flynn, and it’s unlikely that they’d flip again on the matter. Sullivan may be seeking to prolong proceedings as long as possible with the hopes of a reversal under a Democrat-controlled DOJ, in which the prosecution of Flynn would be placed in full throttle once again.
Judge Naomi of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals wrote a dissent slamming the irrelevance of Sullivan’s judicial investigation into the dropping of charges on the part of the DOJ.
“In Flynn’s case, the prosecution no longer has a prosecutor,” she wrote. “Yet the case continues with district court proceedings aimed at uncovering the internal deliberations of the Department.”
The En Banc D.C. Circuit has denied the writ of mandamus requested by @GenFlynn — split as expected along lines evident from the tone and tenor of the judges at oral argument.

It is a disturbing blow to the #RuleOfLaw

This is a nakedly political, and nearly unprecedented move on the part of the federal judiciary. The Department of Justice is responsible for the prosecution of federal criminal charges, not Democrat judges.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
