Former national security advisor Michael Flynn was awaiting sentencing Tuesday for lying to FBI agents about his post-election conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States.
A federal judge told Flynn that "arguably you sold your country out" by holding conversations after that 2016 presidential election with Russia's ambassador.
Clear the Judge was not happy with Flynn, his antics by his lawyers about entrapment.
I think that the Judge was ready to sentence Flynn to jail time.
Clearly disgusted with Flynn

This gives Flynn even more time to cooperate with Mueller.

I suspect Trump has soiled 3 adult diapers and it's only 1:00.

I think the Judge was going to sentence Flynn to jail time.

This was the judge that Fox News and Qidiots picked who was gonna expose the FBI Deep State actions and toss out the case. Alan Dershowitz must be having a heart attack. Alan Dershowitz ruthlessly mocked after his pro-Flynn talking points get destroyed at sentencing hearing Oh and this:

Second Woman Says Jeffrey Epstein ‘Directed’ Her to Have Sex With Alan Dershowitz

Yes, and he held Flynn's feet to the fire- do you wish to withdraw your guilty plea, and a few other hard hitting comments regarding Flynn's character.

Not just jail time but major prison time, probably as much as the law would allow; the maximum. Comment's like "arguably you sold your country out" from a Federal judge are serious. We are in entirely different territory now.

I wonder if this will backfire on Flynn. He is basically admitting he has been holding things back, which means that he hasn’t been completely cooperative up until now.

The judge basically asked the Prosecutors why they didn't charge Flynn with treason (they didn't because the definition of treason is exceptionally narrow). Point is, this delay can't be good for Flynn.

Does anyone have numbers for sentencing guidelines?

Heard his lawyers asked to meet with the judge, he denied the request
