Lawyers in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office said Tuesday night that Michael Flynn’s cooperation in the Russia investigation is complete, according to Politico.
Flynn’s lawyers asked for another sentencing delay, so Flynn can assist the government in his former business partner, Bijan Rafiekian’s, upcoming trial.
Mueller’s lawyers did not weigh in on the request, but said that his role in the Russia investigation had come to an end.
“While the defendant remains in a position to cooperate with law enforcement authorities, and could testify in the EDVA case should it proceed to trial, in the government’s view his cooperation is otherwise complete,” they wrote.
Mueller has suggested the low end of the sentencing range of zero to six years for Flynn, due to his substantive help with the investigation.
