NEW: Flynn’s Sentencing Postponed; Judge Says Flynn “Sold Country Out”
Tuesday, December 18, 2018
according to Axios.
Flynn, who admitted to lying to the FBI, will not be sentenced until March 13 of 2019, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan said.
“You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Advisor to the President. Arguably, this undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably, you sold your country out,” Sullivan told Flynn.
According to the Huffington Post, the sentencing was postponed so that Flynn can continue working with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Mueller Suggests no Jail Time
As GoLocalProv reported earlier this month, Mueller called for no prison time for Flynn.
"Given the defendant's substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, 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," Mueller's office wrote in the memo .
Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, has cooperated with Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election since pleading guilty in Dec. 1, 2017, and possible coordination with that meddling by the Trump campaign. Mueller is also investigating whether Trump has obstructed justice in the inquiry.
