Retired Lt. General Michael Flynn filed a restraining order against Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday morning in Florida Court.
General Flynn did not organize, speak at or participate in any of the rallies in Washington DC on January 6th. Despite this Pelosi and Liz Cheney’s Jan. 6 Committee have been targeting and harassing General Flynn in order to bankrupt him and destroy him for his association with President Trump.
Democrats HATE General Flynn because he turned his back on Obama and supported President Trump. They tried to ruin him once. He won’t let them do it again.
From today’s failing:
General Flynn did not organize, speak at, or actively participate in any rallies or protests in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, and he of course did not participate in the attack on the Capitol that day. Ex. A, Declaration of Michael Flynn (“Flynn Decl.”) ¶ 5. Nevertheless, the Select Committee—assuming the role of shadow prosecutor for the January 6 attack and working in parallel with the actual prosecutors at the Department of Justice—has diverted its attention from its important work to target General Flynn for a quasi-prosecution that is either aimless or transparently partisan.
Despite not participating in any public events in Washington on January 6, Defendants have issued General Flynn a sweeping subpoena seeking twenty different categories of documents and a demand that General Flynn appear for a deposition in Washington, D.C. The subpoena demands records of General Flynn’s communications about the 2020 election, and seeks to identify the basis for his beliefs and the persons with whom he associated, in addition to contacts with government officials. It thus constitutes a frontal assault on his 1 st Amendment rights to freedom of speech, association, and petition.
General Flynn also filed declaratory and injunctive relief to invalidate and prohibit the enforcement of a subpoena from the Select Committee.
