Hard to believe, but Trump's packing the court with extreme right-wing judges like Neomi Rao on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals has paid off for Trump and Flynn.  Rao holds the view, among others, that the president does not have to respond to any subpoena from Congress, for example.  In the Flynn case the two Republican judges have decided that Flynn should be allowed to walk away from his multiple guilty pleas.  It is possible that the Circuit Court will review that decision en banc, i.e. with all of the appellate judges participating, before it becomes final, but it's too early to know if that review will happen.

 

This is a black day for the American judiciary.

It was a black day when the FBI entrapped Flynn. It was a black day when he drew politically motivated and biased Judge. 

 

It is a black day because the media continue to try and tie Trump to the meddling that Russia did in the election and people continue to believe it even though the Mueller investigation found no wrong doing by the Trump campaign. 

 

 

 What is the original sin here! Is it Flynn's lying or the cover up of Flynn's interview ,which all came about from requesting  those notes of the (so called  career professionals in the fbi) , that took two years to get!

I guess comey(recommended for prosecution) really thought he could stymie Trumps moves in those early years into getting all the evidence and acting on it,especially knowing Trump couldn't make a move until sessions was out(recuse) and muellers investigation was over,knowing Trump would be held for obstruction if he interceded by firing him!   

 

The obama admin , Doj  and intel have much to explain!

Has any president put enemies on the courts? Of course not.

Your view is pointless, IMO.

However, the US system of politically appointed judges is a crock of <deleted>, and judges should be appointed by a non political process.

And as we have seen, some appointments don't work out as hoped
