He also did not include with filing an application for immediate action by the referee — like request for temporary restraining order or preliminary injunctive relief – notwithstanding the judge’s request that he set out to her “the exact remedy sought, including any request for injunction pending resolution of traffic.”

Trump said the newly released redacted affidavits submitted by the FBI in court for a warrant for search picked up”more questions than answers.
