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 –
