A federal judge in Florida on Thursday denied Michael Flynn’s request for a temporary restraining order to block subpoenas from the Jan. 6 committee compelling him to testify and to produce scores of documents.
The judge took action the day after Flynn filed his motion in federal court in Florida, which is where he lives.
“U.S. District Court Judge Mary Scriven (GW Bush) in Tampa said Flynn’s motion… failed for two reasons, including a lack of urgency,” writes NBC News’ Pete Williams. “The judge noted that the committee postponed Flynn’s deposition to ‘a date to be determined.’ And while the committee’s subpoena said he should produce the documents it requested by Nov. 23, ‘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.'”
