WASHINGTON (AP) The Justice Department on Thursday said it is dropping the criminal case against President Donald Trumps first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, abandoning a prosecution that became a rallying cry for Trump and his supporters in attacking the FBIs Russia investigation.

So is this better/worse than if Judge Sullivan had made the ruling?
can you change this to breaking?
So, with no judgment, they can re-open it at a later date?
Whooo Hooo!! On with the prosecutions of the putrid pukes who brought this all on!!
Is today the day for the “boom” we’ve been waiting for?
THANK GOD!! All the hell this man has had to go through for years because the commie left wanted to destroy Trump..I want people to burn for what they did to this man..Trump should put him back into the Administration now
I think that there should be a huge apology before this, one long and drawn out...
Oh sweet Jesus. This is awesome.
Flynn might have been better equipped to pursue a civil lawsuit if the judge had ruled in his favor on the matter.
What else have they lied about?
Good! Now sue the Bastards!
“The Justice Department said it had concluded that Flynns interview by the FBI was ‘untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBIs counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn’ and that the interview on January 24, 2017 was ‘conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.’
Great news... now someone needs to bring charges against the DOJ...
I don’t know if it’s possible in this case, but this should be followed by the biggest wrongful prosecution suit in the history of man.
There should still be a full accounting of how/why this happened from start to finish.
It should also be apparent now that the convictions against George PapaD should be vacated for the same reasons. They clearly tried to entrap him with the 10k cash payment.
Manafort was convicted on old charges that preceded the Trump campaign even though those were declined for prosecution prior to Mueller.
The indictments of the Russian Troll Farmers were an epic failure.
This leaves Stone.....
I’m hoping that statement is read as a massive admission of liability in a civil lawsuit.
Perhaps, but Flynn’s lawyer should have no problem making the case on a preponderance of evidence standard.
Would have to think that DOJ and his prior lawyers will settle out of court. They can’t be that stupid. Write the check now and avoid even more painful discovery.
