Flynn Flipped So High Mueller Tells Judge Don’t Lock Him Up

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has filed his long-awaited sentencing memo on former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn pleaded guilty one year ago to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Sergey Kislyak, who was then the Ambassador of Russia.

Flynn participated in 19 interviews and gave the Mueller team "substantial" information. Mueller is recommending no jail time.

"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," the memo reads.

Flynn was the first senior Trump White House official to be charged by Mueller in the Russia probe. NBC News last year reported that "a 'very senior member' of the transition team directed Flynn to contact foreign officials, including those from Russia." That person is believed to be Jared Kushner.

UPDATE: 8:46 PM ET –

The supplemental document is highly-redacted.
