Manafort 'Tying Up Loose Ends' In Russia Probe

In a heavily redacted sentencing memo, special counsel Robert Mueller said that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has been such a help to multiple investigations that no jail time is recommended.

Sean Hannity blasted the memorandum filed by the Mueller prosecution team regarding what the legal outlook is for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn [Ret.] - President Trump's former National Security Adviser.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators on December 1, 2017.

The new details explaining how Flynn has helped the special counsel investigation will ratchet up the pressure on President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt". Mueller's office, citing 19 interviews provided by Flynn to Mueller's office and other federal prosecutors, asked a federal judge not to sentence him to prison.

Trump also took fresh aim Monday at Mueller, who is investigating possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election and whether Trump has tried to obstruct the probe.

Catherine Herridge of Fox News indicated that Flynn could have faced up to five years of prison time for the charges he plead guilty to, which included lying to federal investigators.

Deontay Wilder retains heavyweight title after draw with Tyson Fury
Naturally, talk of a rematch dominated the post-fight conversation, but this is a bout each will look at as an opportunity lost. Wilder landed just 71 of 430 punches thrown, or 17 per cent. "I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight".

"The defendant has also assisted with the SCO investigation concerning links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign", it read.

He is the only member of the Trump administration so far to plead guilty as a result of the investigation.

On Monday, Trump praised longtime associate and Republican operative Roger Stone, who has been under scrutiny by investigators over his comments about leaked Democratic emails during the presidential campaign.

Most notably, Trump former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, aggressively fought the investigation and is now facing the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence after his cooperation agreement recently fell apart over allegations that he had lied to investigators. Two women had alleged extramarital affairs with Trump, which the president denies.

Around that same time, Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to let the Flynn investigation go, Comey has said. A United States official has told The Associated Press that Flynn was in frequent contact with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on the day the Obama administration imposed sanctions on Russian Federation after U.S. intelligence reported that Russian Federation had interfered with the USA elections. The White House has said Flynn misled officials - including Vice President Mike Pence - about the content of his conversations.

"If you believe in this constitutional republic and equal justice under the law, you ought to be very concerned tonight - and outraged", Hannity said.
