A federal judge in Washington, D.C., declined Tuesday to press for the public release of transcripts of discussions President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the presidential transition.

Judge Emmet Sullivan last month ordered the Justice Department to turn over transcripts of Flynn’s conversations with Russian officials, along with the transcript of a voicemail recording one of Trump’s personal attorneys left with a defense lawyer for Flynn. But at Friday’s deadline, federal prosecutors provided only the transcript of the voicemail, flouting the portion of Sullivan’s order related to Flynn’s talks during the transition with Sergey I. Kislyak, who at the time was Russia’s ambassador to the United States.
