The judge hearing the criminal prosecution against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Thursday asked an appeals court to reconsider a recent decision dismissing the case.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan asked the entire U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reconsider the June 24 decision that directed him to drop the Flynn case. 

In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the appellate court ruled in favor of Flynn and the Trump administration in preventing Sullivan from exercising his discretion on whether to grant the department’s motion to clear Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty.
