Michael Flynn’s legal nightmare was supposed to end on Tuesday. Instead, he will now wait until March to learn his fate. Why? Because the judge wants him to cooperate with the Mueller investigation. This is another example of the anti-Trump legal railroading we have all become familiar with.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Michael Flynn’s sentencing delayed so he can keep cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller
The federal judge who was ready to sentence former national security adviser Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI said Tuesday he would delay that decision after learning Flynn might still be cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller.
Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, said he wanted to postpone the sentencing because their client may be asked to testify in a case brought against two of his former business associates in Virginia. The special counsel’s office had previously indicated in court Tuesday that Flynn’s cooperation led to that indictment.
The judge, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, agreed to a delay.
Brandon Van Grack, a prosecutor with the special counsel’s team, indicated prior to the judge’s ruling that it “remains a possibility” that Flynn will continue to cooperate with the federal government.
“The more you assist the government, the more you arguably help yourself at the time of sentencing,” Sullivan said in response.
They are just going to keep going after anyone connected to Trump and make their lives hell until one of them says something they want to hear.
