The special counsel’s office wants two more months before it looks toward sentencing former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who has pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and is cooperating in the Russia probe.“Due to the status of the special counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” Robert Mueller’s prosecutors and Flynn’s lawyers told the DC federal court on Tuesday.Flynn pleaded guilty five months ago. Prosecutors have previously delayed scheduling his sentencing.
This suggests to me that Mueller knows that some of the most serious developments in this case are going to transpire over the next two months or so.
And maybe depending on the degree to which Flynn cooperates over this time, will effect how long he goes to jail for.
Couple this latest request by Mueller with the leak of his 49 questions, and it’s like we are maybe getting close to the beginning of the end.
It can’t come soon enough! ????????????????????????

According to Rachel and Lawrence on MSNBC, from a breaking WaPo story, Mueller threatened to subpoena Trump to appear before the Grand jury if he refused an interview or to answer those 49 questions. ???? www.washingtonpost.com/…
