Horrible: Democrats on DC Circuit Court of Appeals Agree to Full En Banc Hearing of Flynn Case

It's plain they're just trying to delay this until they can get a change of AG.

The entire Federal Appeals Court in Washington said on Thursday that it would take up a case involving Attorney General William P. Barr's decision to drop the prosecution of President Trump's former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, erasing a split decision by a three-judge panel in June ordering an immediate end to the case.

A terse order from the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said that a majority of its members had voted to erase a June 24 panel decision ordering the immediate dismissal of the case against Mr. Flynn, and set oral arguments before the full court for Aug. 11.

A majority of the Court of Appeals' members are Democrats.

By the way, the DC Court of Appeals is the most important court in America, after the Supreme Court. That's because it's the court of appeals for almost every single case involving the US government, which of course is located in DC.

And of course it will be the court of appeals for most political trials.

And expect many, many more political trials, if we lose in November.

It was for the purposes of packing the DC Court with liberals that the Democrats fillibustered Miguel Estrada, who had been nominated to the court; it was for the purposes of packing the DC Court with liberals that the Democrats then got rid of the filibuster!

First they used it to keep a conservative off the court, then they got rid of it to pack the court with liberals.

The Democrats seem to understand the importance of judges, even if the "But Gorsuch" NeverTrump neoliberals don't (or pretend not to).

Thanks to Tom Servo.
