How does this work? If the majority go against him what will happen?
It means there will be a rehearing by the full circuit. The prior 2-1 decision is vacated.
On the law, they will be in the very difficult position of being trapped by their own recent prior opinion.
Is the Supreme Court the next stop?
We have to see what the full panel does first
But dude in the video^ makes some good points
I don't have faith. 7 dems with only 3 reps are not good odds. Perhaps I'll be surprised. Btw, what happens if it ends up with a 5-5 tie?
I thought they had 11 on the DC circuit
i will have to check that
You can see from the order they were trying to avoid their own precedent - which is awful
Roberts always argues their are no political divides on the Cir Courts - this case might be the slap upside the head he needs
One judge stepped aside because he worked with Mueller I believe. Only 10 will be on this case.
Then the order to vacate would be lifted or become invalid (I think)
Although you would probably still get a majority to agree at least on how to deal with that
Question is can we find 2 dems here that have integrity? I mean, how much more exculpatory evidence does a judge need to see that this Flynn case stinks. Sullivan has proven himself to be either corrupt or a complete idiot. Probably a little of both.
The FBI made 201 errors in 29 FISA warrants.
They said "dont worry" because they reviewed their own files (except the 4 they lost) and they have assured the court that none of the errors were significant.
FBI, DOJ says FISA errors did not influence court’s decisions
Two raids now
There are 11 active judges on the DC Circuit, but one is recused. A 12th has been appointed and confirmed but his term doesn't start until September 1. link
The DC Circuit Local Rule 35(d) provides "If the en banc court divides evenly, a new judgment affirming the decision under review will be issued." link Thus, the Court would affirm Judge Sullivan's refusal to dismiss charges against Flynn and the prosecution would continue (subject, of course, to SCOTUS review).
However, if the case is held up until September 1, I think the new Circuit Judge would be able to cast a deciding vote.
One potential outcome -- the en banc panel affirms 5-5. Later, one of the judges from the DC Circuit (Merrick Garland??) is appointed to SCOTUS, and has to recuse there. SCOTUS affirms 4-4. The prosecution would survive by the skin of its teeth at every level.
Thanks for the info.
Except that IG Horowitz and the FISA court thought they were significant. How stupid do they think we are?
Horowitz could have said a lot more
And the Chief Judge of the FISA Court basically ran away
Yates throws Comey under the bus. Says he went rogue in Flynn interview. Yates: Comey went 'rogue' with Flynn interview
He husband was a major Obama donor
I would have treated her appearance much differently -- there are several questions we needed her to answer on the record
Compare and contrast how Graham handled his hearing (he let her testify from home) with how the House Dems treated Barr
Yep, Lindsey Graham et al on TV saying what should and ought to be done blah blah blah.
U.S. Attorney John Durham will soon interview former CIA Director John Brennan, another sign that the investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators is ready to wrap up by the end of the summer.
John Durham set to interview John Brennan: Report
Supposedly they are going to be able to show US Govt money went to Ukraine, then back into a law firm in the US, then disbusred by the law firm into accounts controlled by at least one of the Bidens, possibly more than one.
I think this is something US politicians do, on both sides. It's one of the ways they go into the Congress worth $100k then come out worth $500M. So, even if they are not able to snag a Biden (or two) on this, if they can just simply shut this crap down, it will be a large victory for the US taxpayer
We will see
How is wish I did not believe this will just go away. I agree that it is both parties hence my doubt anything will come of it.
RCP quotes folks suggesting Durham may have some 'bombshells' to drop by Labor Day
We will see.
Not going to be Brennan, this we have already seen. Or so it appears
