Michael Flynn’s Bogus Lawsuit Against Jan 6 Committee Fails

The former general turned Donald Trump hawker must be afraid of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Otherwise, why would Michael Flynn try to get a restraining order against her — and the January 6 Selection Committee? For a former military guy, he was unusually frightened of this little 81-year-old woman.

When he applied for it, the Florida judge was baffled. U.S. District Court Judge Mary Scriven said, according to NBC News:

‘[T]here is no basis to conclude that Flynn will face immediate and irreparable harm.’

She denied Flynn’s request for his temporary restraining order to halt the Committee’s subpoenas forcing him to appear before it and testify, plus produce reams of documents. Flynn lives in Florida, so that is why he filed his motion in federal court there.

The judge dismissed his request for several reasons. First, there was no hurry. She noted that the January 6 Select Committee was the party that postponed its request once already:

‘[A] date to be determined [with documents by November 23] but there is no evidence in the record as to the date by which the select committee now expects Flynn to comply with its document requests.’

The judge continued:

‘[T]here is no basis to conclude that Flynn will face immediate and irreparable harm.’

 

The committee told him that it wanted to talk “about a meeting he had with Trump and other people at the White House last December,” according to CNBC:

‘[Where they] discussed seizing voting machines, declaring a national emergency, invoking certain national security emergency powers, and continuing to spread the message that the November 2020 election had been tainted by widespread fraud.’

Flynn had not proven this. In addition, his attorneys did not make the request properly. To get a temporary restraining order, they must notify the other parties, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and the Select Committee, or prove that there was a valid reason not to do so. The former “lock her up” chanter’s attorney failed to meet these requirements, according to the judge:

‘[Unless] he believes he can comply with the procedural requirements.’

Flynn first appeared in the public eye when he was hired to be Trump’s National Security Adviser. Then, seventeen days into the Trump administration, he was fired for lying to Vice President Michael Pence.

Flynn filed a lawsuit on Tuesday saying:

‘[T]hat the subpoena was too broad inquiring into his political views and violating his First Amendment rights. He also said it requested information about matters that could touch on a separate criminal investigation, violating his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.’

 

In 2017, the former National Security Adviser was charged with lying to federal agents. He lied to the former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s people about talking to a Russian diplomat. The special counsel was investigating Russians compromising our 2016 presidential election.

To save his neck, Flynn began cooperating with the agents. Then, suddenly he stopped. The reason soon became apparent. Trump gave him a full pardon.
