Special counsel Robert Mueller filed his sentencing memo for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn Tuesday.

Last December, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Back then, he was the second former Trump adviser, after George Papadopoulos, to cut a deal with Mueller’s team. And as part of that deal, Flynn committed to cooperate with the probe.

In the sentencing memo, Mueller assessed Flynn’s cooperation as “substantial,” and wrote that “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.”

Flynn will be sentenced by a Washington, DC judge on December 18. You can read the main memo below, or at this link.

22/ Parts of the memo are under seal because they pertain to ongoing investigations. This confirms my earlier statement that in fact there are people fingered by Flynn who are still being investigated and may well be prosecuted.

23/ The memo notes lies Flynn told about contacts with Russia, Israel, and Turkey. I won't rehash the basics of the Flynn allegations here (as they are rehashed in the sentencing memo), as if you're reading this you probably read the criminal information Flynn pleaded guilty to.

24/ The good stuff (much redacted) is in the addendum to the filing. Beginning to read that now.

25/ Mueller confirms that Flynn aided the collusion investigation. And as I've said on the feed many times, those who said Flynn being sentenced meant no one else would be charged due to his cooperation were *wrong*. Mueller makes that perfectly clear. Glad that canard has ended.

26/ The redactions are EXTREME. There are MANY redactions. Whole paragraphs MISSING. And based upon what precedes them, those paragraphs would appear to be about (a) ongoing (b) collusion investigations (c) that could lead to further charges of other individuals down the line.

27/ To be clear, though, the greatest number of redactions—an entire section of the document—are from an investigation OTHER than the Special Counsel's investigation, which is clearly a criminal investigation. We don't know who the target is—but it seems to NOT be Russia-related.

28/ Flynn told Mueller about interactions between members of the Presidential Transition Team and Russia. What's odd about that is that presumably "members" means people other than himself.

29/ I should amend my earlier comment to say the LONGEST redaction IS about the Mueller collusion investigation. After Mueller writes of what Flynn told him about his own (Flynn's) contact with Russia, MANY paragraphs are redacted. That would be *others'* contact with Russians.
