Appeals Court Hears Michael Flynn Dismissal Case

CNN reports:

A federal appeals court on Tuesday is considering whether former national security adviser Michael Flynn should have his case dismissed immediately because he shouldn’t have been interviewed by the FBI in the early days of the Trump administration and thus should never have pleaded guilty to lying, according to the DOJ’s reasoning.

The case has had countless twists since Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general and top intelligence official, pleaded guilty almost three years ago to lying to the FBI about his talks with the then-Russian ambassador about approaches that would undermine Obama administration policy before Trump took office.
