“Are Democrats, Obama and Biden going to apologize?” – Trump reacts after appeals court orders judge to dismiss criminal case against his former adviser( Michael Flynn)

Donald Trump, has reacted to a Federal Appeals court judgement ordering the charges in opposition to his former aide Michael Flynn to be dropped.

Michael Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who become the 25th National Security Advisor for the first 22 days of the Trump administration until his forced resignation.

In a victory for the Trump administration, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday, June 23, that U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan should immediately dismiss the criminal case towards Michael Flynn, pronouncing he can not scrutinize the Justice Department’s decision to drop the long-going prosecution.

The courtroom’s choice comes after the Justice Department in May ordered the charges towards Flynn to be dropped as they had been politically motivated.

Flynn two times pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about his pre-inauguration contacts with Russia’s ambassador.

In a 2-1 decision, the court said it is not within the judge power to lengthen a prosecution or take a look at the government’s motives within the politically charged case.

“This is not the unusual case where a more searching inquiry is justified,” wrote Judge Neomi Rao

The judge’s “demonstrated intent to scrutinize the reasoning and motives of the Department of Justice constitute irreparable harms that cannot be remedied on appeal,” Rao wrote in the 19-page opinion that was joined by Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, a nominee of President George H.W. Bush.

Trump reacting to the news tweeted: “Great! Appeals Court Upholds Justice Departments Request To Drop Criminal Case Against General Michael Flynn!”

In every other tweet, he wrote;
