On May 7, 2020, the government filed a Motion to Dismiss the Criminal Information Against the Defendant Michael T. Flynn, in which the government moved to dismiss with prejudice the criminal information filed in this case pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48 and as an exercise of its prosecutorial discretion.
“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case. I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.” – Jeffrey Jensen, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri
The Honorable Emmet G. Sullivan, United States District Judge, has so ordered.
Attorney General Barr said, “I want to make sure that we restore confidence in the system. There’s only one standard of justice. And, I believe that… justice, in this case, requires dismissing the charges against General Flynn.”
When asked if Barr was doing the president’s bidding, he responded: “I’m doing the law’s bidding. A crime cannot be established here.”
