I guess Barr will have to try some other sneaky crook maneuver to help his criminal buddy Flynn out.

Appeals court denies Michael Flynn and Justice Department's effort to end his case

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI.

Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.​

That's shocking. Just another reason why trump is bad for America. You dont elect judges to rule for you.
