'Ultra-Trumpy' judge slammed by legal experts for ordering Flynn case thrown out

On Wednesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan to comply with the Justice Department and dismiss the charges against President Donald Trump's ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. The 2-1 opinion was written by Judge Neomi Rao, an ultraconservative appointed by Trump to fill the seat vacated by Brett Kavanaugh.


Legal experts were quick to slam Rao's ruling, noting its partisan undertones — and some urged the full D.C. Circuit to review her decision.
