11/ I'd also note that if the Whitewater probe could go on for a total of 7 or 8 years, the *entirety* of the Russia investigation could theoretically go on at *least* as long—and no one anywhere thinks a federal judge would let Mike Flynn's sentencing dangle for years and years.

12/ Those are just a few of the reasons we ought not read into this sentencing happening when it is that Flynn *hasn't* laid the groundwork for any future Russia-related indictments besides—at most, per Isikoff—a Trump-Russia collusion report fingering Trump himself as complicit.

13/ As for the claim Flynn can mainly speak to obstruction rather than collusion, well.... that's bonkers. Anyone who reads PROOF OF COLLUSION knows that Flynn is critical to collusion and in fact plays a relatively minor role (compared to several other witnesses) in obstruction.

14/ Note too—and any federal prosecutor will tell you this—that a federal prosecutor has many means to ensure a witness who's already been convicted testifies under oath (see the hint I just gave regarding one method!) consistent with what they've previously said to prosecutors.

15/ As anticipation for the imminent release of the Mueller memo on Flynn reaches a fevered pitch, I just want to point out again that with a sentencing range of zero to six months on a single 18 U.S.C. 1001(a)(2) count, Mueller doesn't actually have to release *that* much info.

16/ In fact I'd look at it in the opposite way: *if* Mueller *does* release a large amount of new info—*whether or not it's redacted material*—it suggests either (a) he wants six months from Flynn and thinks it'll be hard to get, or (b) he's releasing the info for another reason.

17/ BREAKING: Robert Mueller says Flynn should get no jail-time because he provided the government with "substantial assistance."

18/ MUELLER: "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." This is very bad news for Trump.

20/ Flynn cooperated in at least one criminal investigation against a person whose name is redacted.
