The sentencing of former national security adviser Michael Flynn has been delayed.
Flynn was set to learn of his sentence Tuesday in Washington D.C. However, that was not the case as the judge decided to postpone the sentencing phase until March of next year.
However, while both prosecutors and the defense recommended no jail time for the disgraced general, due to his cooperation with Mueller investigation, prison may be in Flynn’s future.
Judge Emmett Sullivan wasn’t shy with his feelings about Flynn’s actions. The judge laid into Flynn saying that he “arguably, you sold your country out.” He went on to say that he “can’t hide my disgust, my disdain” for Flynn’s actions.
Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to lying to the FBI about contact with Russians. Flynn faces a maximum of up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
