Flynn, McEnany and Trump’s personal assistant granted delays by Jan. 6 committee
One-time White House national security advisor Michael Flynn, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and former President Trump’s personal assistant Nicholas Luna have been granted a delay in their depositions with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
A committee aide confirmed to The Hill that all three have been granted short postponements as they continue to “engage” with the committee.
McEnany was scheduled to appear before the committee last Friday. Her subpoenas focused on false statements she made promoting baseless claims of voter fraud.
“As a White House Press Secretary you made multiple public statements from the White House and elsewhere about purported fraud in the November 2020 election, which individuals who attacked the U.S. Capitol echoed on Jan. 6,” the committee wrote to McEnany.
Flynn and Luna were both slated to appear Monday. Their postponement was first reported by CNN.
Flynn was no longer a White House employee on Jan. 6, but he is sought in connection with his attendance at a December meeting at the White House during which participants discussed declaring a national emergency as a route for seizing voting machines. It also focuses on his comments suggesting using martial law following the election.
Luna, who served as Trump’s personal assistant, was reportedly in the Oval Office the morning of Jan. 6 when the former president was on a phone call to former Vice President Mike Pence pressuring him not to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.
