Judge delays sentencing of Michael Flynn for lying to FBI


Michael Flynn will not be sentenced today. 

The attorney for President Trump’s former National Security Advisor asked Judge Emmet Sullivan to delay the sentencing. Sullivan says it is fine to proceed by having both sides update the judge on his case in March.

“We are prepared to take your honor up on his suggestion of delaying sentencing, so he can (sic) out the last modicum of cooperation” in Virginia, the attorney said.

Prosecutors said they had no problems delaying the sentencing.

Flynn pleaded guilty last year to lying to the FBI about his Russia contacts.

Prosecutors are not seeking any prison time for Flynn, citing extensive cooperation in the special counsel’s Russia probe.
