Ex-Trump aide Flynn does not deserve jail, lawyers say

Mueller confirmed the contacts 14 close to the Trump entities with the Russians, – WP

The judge said the prosecution's submission lacked "sufficient information" to help inform her decision on whether Manafort did lie and breach his deal.

In the days after President Trump took office, Paul Manafort allegedly guided the administration on how to undermine and thwart the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Russia's election interference in the 2016 campaign, Vox reported Friday.

Last year, however, Flynn departed the White House in a move Trump explained in a tweet at the time.

Flynn is set to be sentenced next Tuesday - but Sullivan's move might delay that date, or lead to other dramatic and unexpected changes in the case.

After a Washington Post report on January 12, the special counsel's office wrote, Flynn "repeated the same false statements to multiple members of the Presidential Transition Team, including Vice President-Elect Michael Pence, incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer".

"We had a conversation with the government earlier today where they were more forthcoming. and I think we can continue to work through getting the detail we need to be able to answer that question", Westling said.

Flynn has admitted to lying to investigators during that meeting about his communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

NASA Offers Curry Tour After NBA Star Says Moon Landings Didn't Happen
Beutel said they have hundreds of pounds of rocks from the moon they'd like to show him. If Curry does make the trip, it's probably best to not let Buzz Aldrin know.

Also on Friday, federal prosecutors in NY rejected Cohen's request to avoid a prison term, saying Cohen had "repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive ends" and deserved a "substantial" prison term that would most likely amount to roughly four years.

The president is right to double down on defending former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and to insist that he didn't lie to the FBI, Rep. Darrell Issa said Friday.

Mueller's team has also told the judge that Flynn should not face prison time, citing his cooperation with prosecutors.

Flynn's lawyers have prepared a memo for the court ahead of Flynn's sentencing stating that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe recommended to Flynn that he not have a lawyer present during questioning by FBI agents.

"General Flynn has accepted responsibility for his conduct". We had heard last week from the special counsel that Flynn had met with them 19 times.

"The stuff you're talking about is peanut stuff", Trump said in an interview with Reuters on Tuesday. They want to scare everybody into making up stories that are not true by catching them in the smallest of misstatements. Trump's one-time personal lawyer is set to be sentenced in NY tomorrow.

Cohen's sentencing underscores the scope and breadth Mueller's probe has taken as it's investigated the ties between Russian Federation and Trump's team, an examination that often has consumed the President for the first half of his term.
