A filing by special counsel Robert Mueller says that President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, provided so much information to the special counsel’s Russia investigation that prosecutors say he shouldn’t do any prison time.
According to a court filing that describes Michael Flynn’s cooperation as “substantial” the filing provides the first details of Flynn’s assistance in the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible contacts with the Trump campaign.
Filed Tuesday (two weeks ahead of Flynn’s sentencing) it states that Flynn participated in 19 interviews with prosecutors and cooperated extensively in a separate and undisclosed criminal probe.
Prosecutors withheld specific details of Flynn’s cooperation because of ongoing investigations, but their filing nonetheless illustrates the depth of information Mueller has obtained from people close to Trump
