Mueller Not Seeking Jail Time for Flynn, Cites “Substantial Assistance”

HeadlineDec 05, 2018

In a sentencing memo filed Tuesday evening, special counsel Robert Mueller said he is not seeking jail time for former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing “substantial assistance” given to the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and at least one other investigation. Large portions of the memo were heavily redacted, meaning Mueller’s team is continuing to hide details of what it has uncovered. The memo also references Flynn’s cooperation in a separate, unidentified criminal investigation, details of which were blacked out.
