Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's orders denying his motions filed under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1994), amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, Pub. L. No. 104- , 110 Stat. 1214, and for reconsideration. We have reviewed the record and the district court's or ders and find no reversible error. Accord ingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Shafer , Nos. CR-92-112-R-H; CA-95-59-R (W.D. Va. Apr. 24, 1996). We further deny Appellant's motions to set aside his conviction and grant a new trial, for appointment of counsel, and for a financial affidavit. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. DISMISSED
