Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned over the “302” interview report Friday that had been requested by U.S. District Judge Emmet G.

Mueller’s Flynn Memo Disappoints Resisters: No Jail Time or Hints of Collusion

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s memo on former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn left members of the so-called “resistance” disappointed that the retired three star Army general would likely not face any jail time, and no collusion was detailed. Leading up to its release, resisters were giddy over the idea the man who led a “Lock her up!” chant on the campaign trail would find himself behind bars. Mueller’s memo instead praised him for his substantial cooperation and “exemplary” service in uniform, leaving some angry. I cannot express how disappointed…

Mueller: Michael Flynn Gave ‘Substantial Assistance’ to Russia Probe, No Jail Time Recommended

Special counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday filed a long-awaited sentencing memo regarding his criminal case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn and recommended he not receive any prison time after providing prosecutors with “substantial assistance.” “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,” the filing reads. According to the document, Flynn participated in 19 interviews with investigators with the Office of the Special Counsel or Department of…

Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews said it looks like special counsel’s Robert Mueller investigation is wrapping up. Matthews said, “It looks like the rats are leaving the ship. It about to hit the Titanic? I’m dead serious about that metaphor. It looks like people like Cohen and everybody Flynn are all talking.
