Mueller Issues Sentencing Memo For Flynn


Special Counsel Robert Mueller is  recommending no prison time for former Trump administration National  Security Adviser Michael Flynn.  Mueller released his sentencing  recommendations in a memo tonight.  Mueller noted that Flynn is  cooperating with the government and should receive a light sentence for  one count of lying to the FBI.

Mueller's sentencing memo noted that Flynn made multiple false  statements to members of the Department of Justice.  Those statements  dealt with his connections with a Russian ambassador and his contacts  with Turkish officials.  Later in the memo, Mueller said Flynn  cooperated in 19 interviews with the Special Counsel's Office and  provided documents and communications.  There is a heavily redacted  section of the memo that starts with the phrase "The defendant has  provided substantial assistance in a criminal investigation."
