After ruining General Michael Flynn to near bankruptcy, Special Counsel Mueller is now recommending no jail for Flynn.
According to a Memorandum of Law, the special counsel recommends a”sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration.”
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn provided "substantial assistance" in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, according to court papers filed Tuesday.
Prosecutors described Flynn's cooperation with federal prosecutors in a sentencing memo filed by Mueller that offered few new details of the Russia probe. Noting that Flynn met with Mueller’s team 19 times, the memo says a sentence that includes no prison time is "appropriate and warranted."
Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to a charge of lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the weeks before Trump took office.
The crime carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine up to $250,000, but his plea agreement says he's eligible for a sentence of six months or less and can request the court not to impose a fine.
Flynn's sentencing is set for Dec. 18.
This is nice and all, how will General Flynn recover from this Mueller witch hunt financially? General Flynn was forced to put his home up for sale a couple of years ago.
