Read Mueller's full recommendation for Flynn's sentencing in Russian Federation probe
05 December, 2018, 05:13 | Author: Sue Mclaughlin
In a court filing last week, Cohen said he had pursued a proposed Trump Organization real estate project in Moscow with Russian government officials well into the presidential campaign, with Trump's knowledge.
Prosecutors said the two men discussed US sanctions against Russian Federation and that Flynn also asked Kislyak to help delay a United Nations vote seen as damaging to Israel.
Cohen's lawyers asked for a sentence of "time-served", meaning no additional prison time, according to his November 30 sentencing memo.
Flynn's sentencing is scheduled for December 18. However, his plea agreement states he is eligible for a sentence of zero to six months and can ask the court not to impose a fine. Flynn had denied that he'd asked the Russian ambassador not to retaliate over USA sanctions the Obama administration imposed in December 2016 in response to Russia's interference in the US presidential election. Not only did he draw notice to how soon into the investigation he agreed to cooperate, but he also pointed out how valuable his cooperation has been.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, departs Capitol Hill following a closed door meeting, June 21, 2017.
Flynn also admitted that later in December 2016 he asked Kislyak not to retaliate in response to the Obama administration sanctions, something he initially told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents he didn't do.
Mueller has wasted no time bringing into court other cooperating witnesses, such as George Papadopoulos, a former campaign adviser, and Paul Manafort, once Trump's campaign chairman, to face penalties for lying to his investigators or not fully cooperating.

To date, there have been scant details from Mueller's team about the extent of Flynn's cooperation, including how many times he was interviewed, what he disclosed and whether he fully cooperated to their satisfaction.
Whatever it is that Flynn said, it's clear that Mueller liked it. Cohen told the Senate Intelligence Committee that discussions about the project with Russian Federation ended in January 2016, prior to the Iowa caucuses, the first contest in the presidential primaries.
It's unclear if Trump will now turn his fury on Flynn, who Trump grew close to during the 2016 campaign and has drawn the president's sympathy since he came under investigation.
As part of his plea deal, Flynn said members of Trump's inner circle, including his son-in-law and White House aide Jared Kushner, were involved in - and at times directing - his actions in the weeks before Trump took office.
Other than Flynn and Cohen, Mueller's team charged former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos with making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Flynn, who turns 60 on Wednesday, is among a number of people in Trump's orbit who have pleaded guilty to criminal charges.
