  • Judge again delays sentencing for Michael Flynn Trump's former national security advisor

"Stonington Global is honored to welcome General Flynn as we expand our services around the world", he said in a statement. He was aware that a statement was being drafted, but he did not intend that it be issued at this time.

On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported Stonington Strategies, founded and headed by Nick Muzin and Joey Allaham, issued a press release and statements announcing the addition of Flynn to the team.

The attorney, Robert Kelner, confirmed at the hearing that his client is continuing to cooperate with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of any links between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

In a statement about the move, Flynn said he is "excited to begin this new phase of my career".

Kelner agreed with the judge's suggestion that a sentencing hearing could be held within 60 days of the conclusion of Flynn's cooperation with Mueller, rather than the usual 90 days, as a way to expedite an end to his case.

"We can not comment on General Flynn's considerations about the timing of the announcement, but we have faith in his patriotism and long history of service to our country", Muzin and Allaham told the Journal. Flynn could face up to six months in prison.

The two parties jointly asked that a probation officer prepare a report on how Flynn's background fits with federal sentencing guidelines.

In response, the artist removed the word "of" when he cleaned up the graffiti, which you'd think would have put and end to the chaos.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who took over the case after the judge who heard Flynn's guilty plea stepped aside, told lawyers for both sides he had "a level of discomfort", with the notion of imposing a sentence before engaging with them. "Its issuance now in his name appears to have been the result of a misunderstanding", Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony, counsel to Flynn wrote.

Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian Federation during President Donald Trump's transition. While the delay in sentencing indicates that Flynn is still playing an active role in the special counsel's investigation, today's hearing did not provide insight about the nature of his role. The general did not speak, but Kelner said his client is "eager" to move on with his life.

Another Trump campaign associate whom Mueller's team charges with lying to associates and who pleaded guilty past year, George Papadopoulos, is set to be sentenced September 7. Through the year and a half of political turmoil sparked by his 24-day term as national security adviser, Flynn has amassed a base of supporters who don't believe he lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Flynn stepped down as Trump's national security adviser in February 2017 and pleaded guilty in December.

It all just goes to show that they don't call America the "land of opportunity" for nothing: In what other country could a humble, aging, criminally corrupt former high-ranking national security official and unregistered lobbyist for foreign governments work his way up to becoming a registered lobbyist at a firm whose co-founder allegedly helped the Qatari government hack Elliott Broidy's emails?

That investigation expanded to his receiving tens of thousands of dollars by Russian firms to appear at events, and his undeclared lobbying for Turkey during the 2016 presidential campaign, for which he reportedly earned more than $500,000.

Flynn was jeered by a small group of protesters as he arrived at and later left the courthouse in Washington, some chanting "lock him up!"
