California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa on “Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo” gives insight into what questions he has for former FBI Director Jim Comey as he returns to Capitol Hill for questioning.
Michael Flynn is a retired United States Army Lieutenant General and former National Security Advisor to president Trump. In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to a felony charge of lying to federal investigators about contacts he had with the Russian government during Trump’s presidential transition
Late Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to turn over all of the government’s documents and “memoranda” related to Michael Flynn’s questioning. The judges demand puts Mueller under the microscope, and sets a 3:00 p.m. EST Friday deadline for the special counsel’s office to produce the sensitive FBI documents.
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is still weighing up how to sentence Flynn, who pleaded guilty to one count of lying to federal authorities during the 2017 interview in the White House. Flynn faced mounting legal bills that forced him to sell his home amid the prosecution, and Mueller has already recommended he receive no prison time.
Judge Sullivan’s brief order states that Robert Mueller can choose to file the materials under seal if necessary.
Sullivan also ordered the Flynn team to turn over the documents backing up its assertions. The judge could determine why the FBI apparently took a significantly more aggressive tack in handling the Flynn interview than it did during other similar matters, including the agency’s sit-downs with Hillary Clinton and ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.
