Mueller Goes Easy on Michael Flynn for Spilling the Beans
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is recommending Michael Flynn, President Trump’s short-lived national security adviser, serve no jail time for lying to the feds about his contact with Russian officials and work on behalf of Turkish ones.
In memo filed Tuesday night, prosecutors cited Flynn’s “exemplary” military service and his cooperation in the case in suggesting he get the “low end” of a possible six-month sentence—“including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration”—on Dec. 18.
They outlined Flynn’s cooperation in a document that was heavily redacted but nonetheless revealed he assisted with the investigation “on a range of issues, including interactions between individuals in the Presidential Transition Team and Russia.”
