Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has until midnight Tuesday to file a pre-sentencing report on President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a filing that’s expected to shed light on the extent of his cooperation with the Russia probe.
Mueller, the special counsel leading the Trump-Russia inquiry, is scheduled to file a memo to court in Washington DC that will recommend a sentence for Flynn, who has been cooperating since December last year, when he admitted lying to the FBI.

The former national security adviser is, so far, the only member of Trump’s administration to plead guilty to charges in the Mueller investigation, Reuters reported.
Mueller has said that on 29 December 2016, Flynn asked Russia’s ambassador not to retaliate against Obama’s sanctions, after receiving instructions from a senior member of Trump’s transition team, who was with the president-elect at Trump’s private club in Florida.
Endgame: Muellers prosecutors are telling defense lawyers they are tying up loose ends in the Russia probe as they prepare to file 3 crucial memos this week on their most high profile defendants: Flynn, Manafort and Cohen.

Robert Mueller is expected to disclose on Tuesday how Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, has been assisting his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
BREAKING: A Flynn sentencing memo will be submitted by Mueller tomorrow, and memos on Manafort and Cohen will be submitted by Mueller on Friday. These memos should expose details on how much they’ve cooperated, and could reveal crimes and storylines that haven’t been made public.
Sentencing memos filed by Mueller in other prosecutions so far, including the former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, have contained new information about wrongdoing and cooperation by the subjects.
The court filing will suggest a punishment for Flynn, who admitted lying to the FBI about his contact with Russia, and may offer clues about how well the former Trump administration official cooperated with the special counsel's investigation.
The network said that Flynn's conduct could bring others to Mueller's attention, including Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, Vice President Mike Pence and former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland.
