Robert Mueller files sentencing memo on Michael Flynn

WASHINGTON — The special counsel has filed a memo saying that the sentencing guidelines for Flynn's offense suggest 0 to 6 months, but the sentencing memo, referring to Flynn's "substantial assistance," suggests that he not serve any time for the one count of making a false statement to the FBI.

"Given the defendant's substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range — including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration — is appropriate and warranted," the memo says.

The government said that some of the information Flynn gave is sensitive, and related to ongoing investigations, so it asked that part of an addendum to the sentencing memo be sealed.
