Judge delays Michael Flynn's sentencing over DOJ watchdog FISA report

A federal judge postponed retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's criminal sentencing set for next month until after the release of the Justice Department watchdog's report on alleged government surveillance abuses against a member of the Trump campaign.

Federal prosecutors had been scheduled to inform the court whether they had reversed their recommendation of no prison time for President Trump's first national security adviser. Instead, the Justice Department and Flynn's defense team filed a joint motion asking for a delay because they expect Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report to "examine topics related to several matters raised by the defendant."

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan of Washington agreed with that request on Wednesday and delayed the sentencing hearing, which was scheduled for Dec. 18, until further notice.

Flynn and Manafort and Stone, were all railroaded because they supported Trump. Democrats need to focus on themselves and they should be the ones all in prison.
