BREAKING: Robert Mueller Files Michael Flynn’s Sentencing Memo – Read it here
Moments ago, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sentencing memo for former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was released.
The memo outlines Mueller’s suggestions as to the punishment he sees fit for Flynn lying to the FBI about his previous contacts with Russia. Flynn admitted that he lied about his conversations with then Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak, and prosecutors have said that the two men had discussed sanctions that the United States had imposed on the Kremlin.
The memorandum states that the defendant, Michael T. Flynn provided ‘substantial assistance to the government,” and the Mueller team has recommended a sentence “at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”
The memo also states that Michael Flynn took part in 19 interviews and has cooperated in three DOJ investigations.
Also seen in the document below was an addendum to the ‘government’s memorandum in aid of sentencing’, which was highly redacted to remove names of investigations and other information that the special counsel did not want to publicly reveal at this time.
The addendum did mention that Michael Flynn had “assisted the SCO’s investigation on a range of issues, including interactions between individuals in the Presidential Transition Team and Russia.”
The memo can be read below:
