Flynn Wants Sentencing Delayed Again
Former National Security adviser Michael Flynn is reportedly asking for another delay in his sentence as he continues to cooperate with authorities.

According to Fox News:

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is seeking another delay in his sentencing for lying to the FBI, saying that he potentially has more cooperation to offer as he looks to reduce his sentence.

Flynn requested and was granted a delay in sentencing in December. He earlier pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 transition, and said he would cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In a court filing on Tuesday, Flynn’s lawyers requested a 90-day delay as “there may be additional cooperation for the defendant to provide pursuant to the plea agreement in this matter.”

Flynn has been cooperating with prosecutors in an ongoing case against two former business associates accused of illegally lobbying for Turkey. That case is scheduled for trial in July.

Mueller's office has filed a response stating that it takes no position and the cooperation with them is complete.
