He was literally bankrupted over this.
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn provided “substantial assistance” in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference, according to court papers filed Tuesday.
Prosecutors described Flynn’s cooperation with federal prosecutors in a sentencing memo filed by Mueller that offered few new details of the Russia probe.
Noting that Flynn met with Mueller’s team 19 times, the memo says a sentence that includes no prison time is “appropriate and warranted.”
“The defendant provided firsthand information about the content and context of interactions between the transition team and Russian government officials,” reads the heavily-redacted memo.
The memo says Flynn began providing information to investigators “not long after the government first sought his cooperation.”
