Trump 'very happy' about Flynn decision

"He's been exonerated, and I want to congratulate him, he's been through a lot," Trump said.

In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled on Wednesday in favor of Flynn and the Trump administration, preventing District Judge Emmet Sullivan from exercising his discretion on whether to grant the department's motion to clear Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty.
