Former Donald Trump adviser Michael Flynn offers 'substantial' cooperation to Robert Mueller

Michael Cohen's lawyers ask for no prison time

Moments ago, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's sentencing memo for former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was released.

In it, prosecutors said Flynn has assisted with several ongoing investigations, participating in 19 interviews with federal prosecutors.

Prosecutors have filed a sentencing memorandum in the case of Flynn, who pleaded guilty a year ago to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about reaching out to Russian government officials on President Donald Trump's behalf.

But they did include a caveat, which stated: 'Senior government leaders should be held to the highest standards'.

"The defendant's extensive government service should have made him particularly aware of the harm caused by providing false information to the government, as well as the rules governing work performed on behalf of a foreign government".

US President Donald Trump has called for a "full and complete" sentence for his former lawyer Michael Cohen, weighing in on a judicial proceeding with accusations Cohen lied about dealings with Russian Federation during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Flynn's sentencing will take place on December 18, more than a year after he pleaded guilty.

The recommended sentence for Flynn is the latest development in Mueller's investigation, which has also been closing in on former Trump confidants Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.

After the plea deal, Trump described Cohen as weak and a liar and said he himself did nothing wrong in relation to the Moscow project.

Not long after, Trump offered a very different assessment of political consultant Roger Stone, who said Sunday he will never testify against Trump because he would have to "make things up" to do so.

President Trump on Monday highlighted a contrast between a former ally and a current one, and he hopes the former ally spends a long time in prison.

Sentencing memos filed by Mueller in other prosecutions so far, including former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, have contained new information about wrongdoing and cooperation by the subjects. Another possibility is the reported investigation of the Trump Foundation for possible campaign finance violations.

Flynn admitted that he lied to investigators about his communication with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the Trump team's transition.

"His early cooperation was particularly valuable because he was one of the few people with long-term and firsthand insight regarding events and issues under investigation by the [special counsel's office]", Mueller's office wrote. "It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful", Trump tweeted after Flynn pleaded guilty a year ago.
