DC Circuit Court Orders Sullivan to Respond to Flynn’s Appeal to Dismiss Case

The United States Court of Appeals for District of Columbia Circuit has ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan, who’s overseeing Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s case, to respond to his appeal to have him replaced and to dismiss the trial no later than June 1, according to a court document reviewed by SaraACarter.com.

Flynn filed a writ of mandamus to the court on Tuesday after Sullivan failed to comply with the Justice Department’s recommendation to dismiss the case in what Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell described as politically motivated.

The D.C. Appeals Court has ‘ordered Judge Sullivan to respond to #Flynn Petition for Wirt of Mandamus by June 1,” tweeted Powell Thursday.
