Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is back in the news. The case against him, which stems from Robert Mueller’s sham investigation, has hit a new stage and jail is a possibility.
However, Flynn’s lawyers are working to avoid imprisonment for their client. “Mr. Flynn should receive a sentence, if any, of probation and community service,” noted the court filing.
They also wrote, “Mr. Flynn wrote a blank check on his life and put himself in harm’s way for more than five years in foreign deployments and thirty-three years of service to protect all Americans.”
Flynn had already withdrawn his guilty plea, accusing prosecutors of renigging on an agreement — and now he is seeking what amounts to a punishment that many would consider fair.
Tragically, Flynn was targeted from the beginning as a way to get to President Trump. Mueller tarnished the reputation of a good man in the process, and he may never recover.
