Mueller To Issue Sentencing Memo On Flynn

Michael Cohen's lawyers ask for no prison time

A year and three days since President Donald Trump's former national security advisor pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, Mueller filed two brief legal documents calling for him to spend no time in prison over it.

The special counsel began investigating Flynn in May, 2017 and Flynn pleaded guilty for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in December, promising to cooperate with the Mueller probe in exchange for a lesser sentence.

We know, for instance, that Flynn has sat for 19 interviews with Mueller's team, in addition to providing documents and other forms of communication; that the assistance Flynn provided was about contacts between Russian officials and Trump's team during the presidential transition, but wasn't limited to that topic; that Mueller's team thinks Flynn's willingness to flip helped others do the same.

The newly installed Trump administration was briefed about the lies in late January, and, according to then-FBI boss James Comey, the President asked him to "let this go" when it came to Flynn.

Russian President Vladimir Putin still wants to have talks with USA counterpart Donald Trump but after two failed attempts to meet in less than a month, it's up to Washington to make the first move, according to the Kremlin.

Flynn is scheduled to be sentenced December 18 by federal Judge Emmet Sullivan in DC federal court.

According to court papers, in mid-December 2016, Kushner directed Flynn to reach out to several countries, including Russian Federation, about a UN Security Council resolution regarding Israeli settlements.

The new details explaining how Flynn has helped the special counsel investigation will ratchet up the pressure on President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt".

Trump accused Cohen of fabricating stories about his Russian Federation dealings to minimise his sentence on multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud and campaign finance violations that he has admitted in federal court in NY.

Trump said a year ago that Flynn was a "fine man", but he had to dismiss his national security adviser 21 days into the new administration because he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia's ambassador in Washington during the transition.

Flynn admitted lying to investigators about his communications with Russia's ambassador to the USA late in December 2016.

Mr. Trump offered a freaky explanation for his romancing of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to whom he reportedly offered a penthouse apartment worth $50 million in a planned Moscow development, before the 2016 election.

Cohen has twice pleaded guilty in federal court in Manhattan to a litany of crimes, and he has volunteered information to the special counsel and other agencies investigating Trump and his inner circle.

But Michael Cohen, who Trump hired and worked closely with for many years, is a "weak person" who has done "TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things".

So, to recap: In Trump's opinion Stone has "guts" because he'll never testify against Trump. They noted his cooperation likely inspired other crucial witnesses to cooperate.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators on December 1, 2017.

Miami based columnist Grant Stern, who is expert in such cases, said that lawyers representing the State of Qatar in a federal lawsuit just exposed their royal family's links to a U.S. "spy ring".

And in a separate development, the attorneys general of the US States of Maryland and the District of Columbia have formally demanded financial records from President Trump's businesses.

Not only did he draw notice to how soon into the investigation he agreed to cooperate, but he also pointed out how valuable his cooperation has been.

Corsi told CNN that Mueller had asked about his interactions with Stone around the time of the tape's release.
