The Justice Department drops the criminal case against Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia. Flynn already pleaded guilty.

The move was the latest example of Attorney General William P. Barr’s efforts to chisel away at the results of the Russia investigation. Documents that Mr. Flynn’s lawyers cited as evidence of prosecutorial misconduct were turned over as part of a review by an outside prosecutor whom Mr. Barr assigned to re-examine the case.

The New York Times

Former federal prosecutors are unable to find any other criminal case that has been overturned after a guilty plea, noting that the decision seems “dubious.” Democrats echo those concerns.

A politicized and thoroughly corrupt Department of Justice is going to let the president’s crony simply walk away. Americans are right to be furious and worried about the continued erosion of our rule of law.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler

On November 25, Trump pardons Michael Flynn.
