Robert Mueller finally showed his hand.
The special counsel turned in his sentencing report for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
And the amount of jail time Mueller requested left jaws on the ground.
Mueller finally turned in his highly anticipated sentencing report for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Flynn pleaded guilty in October 2017 to one count of making false statements to the FBI.
He spent the next 14 months cooperating with Mueller’s gang of Democrat prosecutors.
Mueller rewarded Flynn with a recommendation for no jail time.
The Daily Caller reports:
Special counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday effectively recommended that Michael Flynn receive no prison time for lying to the FBI, citing the former national security advisor’s “substantial assistance” in the Russia probe and other Department of Justice (DOJ) cases.
“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 wrote in a court filing submitted Tuesday night.
Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, met with the special counsel’s office or other prosecutors in the DOJ 19 times since pleading guilty Dec. 1, 2017, the highly-anticipated court filing reveals.
One striking finding in the sentencing report was Flynn’s biggest help to Mueller was to a criminal investigation unrelated to Russia or the 2016 election.
Mueller said Flynn merely “assisted” with the Russian collusion investigation.
Reporters were expecting Mueller to use this report to show bombshell evidence of Russian collusion.
But once again, they were sorely disappointed.
