A few years ago, Democrats basically ruined the life of Michael Flynn in an attempt to get to Trump.
It was completely political, unfair, and it bankrupted Flynn’s family. Even after all that, they are still going after Flynn, now for the benefit of their sham committee on January 6th.
But Flynn is fighting back. He’s suing the committee.
Michael Flynn sues Jan. 6 committee
Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, is suing to prevent the Jan. 6 select committee from enforcing a subpoena for his testimony and documents, claiming it could violate multiple privileges, including his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, by forcing him to disclose evidence related to multiple ongoing criminal matters.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in a federal district court in Florida, Flynn indicated that he had been in extensive talks with the Jan. 6 committee to negotiate terms of testimony. He said he had hired a vendor “to collect and process General Flynn’s documents, which it did, so that they could be preserved, reviewed and produced to the Select Committee.”
But those talks broke down as Flynn attempted to narrow the topics he would discuss. “Although the Committee agreed to postpone General Flynn’s deposition to December 20, 2021, it would not agree to clarify or prioritize the Subpoena’s requests,” his attorney, Matthew Sarelson, said in the 42-page lawsuit.
Flynn ultimately informed the committee on Monday that he would sue in order to prevent the panel from enforcing its subpoena and holding him in criminal contempt…
Flynn’s lawsuit is the latest in a cascade of litigation by targets of the select committee’s investigation.
Good for him.

Democrats don’t care if they ruin people’s lives. All they care about is power.
