Flynn might be sentenced as early as October – judge

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is “eager to proceed to sentencing” on charges of lying to the FBI, his lawyer told a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia on Tuesday. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan gave a provisional deadline of August 24 to prosecutors with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide a report on Flynn’s cooperation, making late October the earliest possible date for the sentencing hearing. Flynn announced on Tuesday that he will be joining Stonington Global LLC, a consulting firm lobbying for Qatar.
