Donald Trump Wishes Michael Flynn 'Good Luck' with Sentencing

BREAKING Mueller Releases Memo Detailing Flynn's 2017 FBI Interview

Court papers show Flynn made that request at the direction of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. "Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. Rather, it preceded his guilty plea or any threatened indictment and began very shortly after he was first contacted for assistance by the Special Counsel's Office", Flynn's attorneys wrote, describing Flynn's meeting with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and noting he wasn't advised that lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation was a crime.

During Monday's lengthy meeting with members of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, Comey answered questions about the Russian Federation and Hillary Clinton email investigations. Former Trump aide Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison last week, while former aide Paul Manafort awaits sentencing on felony fraud and money laundering charges.

Still, the mere insinuation of underhanded tactics has been startling given the seemingly productive relationship between the two sides, and it was especially striking since prosecutors with special counsel Robert Mueller's office have praised Flynn's cooperation and recommended against prison time.

Flynn's lawyers have suggested that investigators discouraged President Donald Trump's then-national security adviser from having an attorney present during the January 2017 interview and never informed him it was a crime to lie.

The bill would provide more than $400 billion for agriculture subsidies and conservation programs. It is now headed to the desk of President Donald Trump , who is expected to sign it.

Flynn further admitted to failing to file as a foreign agent for the government of Turkey and making misleading statements when he did file.

The notes also show Flynn told agents he didn't ask Kislyak to see if Russian Federation would vote a certain way on a United Nations resolution involving Israeli settlements. A company headed by Flynn took in $530,000 in payments from a businessman connected with the Turkish government in exchange for Flynn's failed efforts to get the USA government to extradite the cleric Fethullah Gülen, prosecutors demonstrated.

Flynn, 60, is a former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and a retired lieutenant general in the United States army.

Until the dueling memos were filed last week, Flynn had cooperated extensively and largely eschewed the aggressive tactics of others involved in the Mueller probe. Another potential target, Jerome Corsi, leaked draft court documents and accused Mueller's team of bullying him. Flynn also deserves leniency because he was not warned before the meeting with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that it was a crime to lie to them, his lawyers said in a recent court filing'. "So much for the law and order president, folks", he reminded viewers. "Yeah that's right, lock her up".
