Mueller recommends no prison time for Michael Flynn, clearly a treasure trove of information

The special counsel’s sentencing memo for Micheal Flynn is out and there’s good news and bad news. Bad news first: A ton of it (i.e. the juicy parts) has been redacted. The good news: Flynn appears to have given Robert Mueller’s team a virtual treasure trove of information. Therefore, Team Mueller is recommending no prison time:

“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”

Flynn sat for fully 19 interviews with the special counsel and other Justice Department offices. That’s a huge number of interviews, more than twice the seven interviews Michael Cohen sat for. MSNBC legal analyst Daniel Goldman, a former federal prosecutor, said the only time a prosecutor would ever spend that much time with a cooperator is if they are “preparing for trial.”

I would like to see him in jail. Lock him up ! Lock him up !! I guess if Mueller thinks he’s given considerable help to the investigation he deserves leniency. Flynn by all accounts was a loyal public servant for decades until he met the impostor president. Everything trump touches turns to shit & I’m sure that’s what happened to Flynn too.
