Former US presidential Advisor for national security Michael Flynn.
WASHINGTON, 5 Dec – Spectracolor on the “Russian intervention” Robert Mueller recommended the release from detention of former US presidential Advisor on national security Michael Flynn for his cooperation with the investigation, the petition, published on the court’s website.
As noted in the document, spectracolor, “taking into account the significant assistance and other actions described below,” recommends Flynn “a more lenient sentence, which does not imply imprisonment”. The decision “is appropriate and justified”, said Mueller.
Flynn, a retired General and former head of US military intelligence, has worked in high positions of national security Advisor about three weeks in January-February 2017. He resigned after he was accused of talking about sanctions, then Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak. The charges were based on leaked in press materials listen to the phone Kislyak. Flynn told different versions of that conversation, which allowed the FBI to accuse him of lying. Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI and agreed to cooperate with Muller. It was reported that he faces up to six months in prison.
