U.S. appeals court orders judge to dismiss case against former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn
- A federal appeals court ordered a lower-court judge to dismiss the criminal case against Michael Flynn, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s first national security advisor.
- The appeals court ruling came in response to a request from Flynn’s lawyers, after Washington, D.C., federal district court Judge Emmet Sullivan did not promptly grant the Justice Department’s motion seeking to dismiss the case.
- Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
