Outstanding, FRP. Excellent and detailed, with really expert commentary added. Wow, can't wait to find out what limits they put on Sullivan for a future hearing, because Sullivan has a temper and might be a little annoyed with Powell and the DOJ by this point.
Thanks, bossman.

Thanks for the commentary.

Did Katsas say anything notable? (I don't recall anything about him recusing.)
No, Katsas has been recused on the Flynn thing from the beginning.

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Case submitted, court adjourned. My hunch is that the decision will break down on partisan lines 7-3 with one of Srinivasan, Garland, or Pillard writing the majority opinion. Rao, Henderson, and Griffith will dissent. Millett will write an impassioned concurrence about how this better not ever happe...

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Wall gives boilerplate about "heads we win, tails we win" before spending a lot more time on what guidance the circuit court should give the court below. Tells you all you need to know.

Powell and Wall get 2 minutes uninterrupted rebuttal "in light of the lateness of the hour." Boy, doesn't that describe today in so many ways? Powell unloads a screed about how Michael Flynn has been abused and persecuted. That Wall is going to follow up and agree on behalf of the government is fuck...

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Judge Millett's hypothetical about an incarcerated and exonerated defendant having their release delayed by an intransigent judge refusing to dismiss a case is really getting annoying.

Judge Henderson also preparing her dissent with a screed about how Judge Sullivan has no standing to petition for rehearing en banc .

Lacking any evidence to the contrary, I choose to belief that Rao is actually reading a script provided to her by Bill Barr. She has wholly adopted Powell and Wall's presupposition that Judge Sullivan has his mind set against them. (As a defense lawyer who frequently deals with judges that are more ...

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Rao is fighting and dying on the hill of whether Judge Sullivan had standing to file the petition for rehearing en banc. That's a strange choice, given that a majority of the circuit already voted to grant the rehearing.

Rao starts with a homily about how unlimited discretion by the Executive Branch serves to protect individual criminal defendants.

Wilkins also wants to get a sense of how to limit whatever hearing Sullivan is going to have. Wilkinson agrees that courts generally can't look into motives behind discretionary decisions.

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

I would take Judge Millett's point about delay and deprivation of Flynn's liberty more seriously if Flynn hadn't availed himself of absolutely every opportunity to delay proceedings in this case for the last three years.

Frankly, there's far too much tapdancing around the correct phrase, which is "fraud on the court." Everyone knows it, no one wants to say it.
