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.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
