Today we find out what type of sentencing Michael Flynn receives. His sentencing by the federal judge is today. I’m sure his attorneys are going to give one last pitch to keep Flynn out of jail. Flynn was Trumps first national security advisor. Flynn’s future is now in the hands of Judge Sullivan. Flynn may have made a error in judgement but the charges did not and do not fit what Flynn said.
Mueller has asked for leniency. But Flynn former business associates were being charged the day before sentencing makes you wonder what’s up with that? This from the Hill.
Associates of onetime national security adviser Michael Flynn are being charged with illegally lobbying for the extradition of Fethullah Gülen, a U.S.-based Turkish cleric who has been a frequent public target of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Federal prosecutors with the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of Virginia on Monday unsealed charges against Bijan Kian, who worked as a partner at the now-defunct Flynn Intel Group, for working as an unregistered foreign agent. Kian, also known by Bijan Rafiekian, has been charged alongside Kamil Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish national and associate of Flynn who is currently believed to be in Istanbul. The charges were revealed one day before Flynn is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Washington, D.C. for lying to FBI agents about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.
Flynn was not charged, but why reveal this now? Some are saying that this was given to the Eastern District by the Mueller team. Both sides are refusing to comment. So was Mueller warning Flynn that they can come after him again? Now this was unsealed Monday but the indictment was dated December 12th.
In closing we saw that Flynn last week came forward and made comments that weren’t very flattering towards Mueller and his team. So today we will see what the judge thinks and does. I say Flynn should walk. What say you?
