BREAKING: Federal Judge Shreds Michael Flynn Before Delaying His Sentencing

A federal judge ripped into former White House National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn Tuesday afternoon before delaying his sentencing. A new date will be set when his cooperation with Robert Mueller's Special Counsel is complete, but will be delayed for at least 90 days. The request for a delay was made by Flynn's attorney after he confirmed his guilty plea of lying to the FBI.

“All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security adviser to the president of the United States. Arguably that undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.” Judge Emmet Sullivan stated from the bench. "I’m not hiding my disgust, my disdain, for this criminal offense."

Flynn's attorneys have requested no prison time be considered due to his life-long service to the United States and because of his extensive cooperation with Mueller's investigation. Mueller's prosecutors agreed and encouraged the judge not to put him behind bars.

On Monday, two of Flynn's former associates were charged with illegal lobbying on behalf of Turkey.

Before his scheduled sentencing this morning President Trump, who fired Flynn for lying to Vice President Mike Pence, tweeted his support.
