Flynn Asks Federal Judge for Leniency, Says FBI Agents Tricked Him - Lawyers

Flynn's absence from the public eye, despite entreaties from supporters to take an aggressive stance against the Russian Federation investigation, has made him a source of continuing intrigue.

"You are supposed to notify the White House counsel if you are going to conduct an interview like this".

President Trump also reacted, telling Harris Faulkner that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team were "embarrassed they got caught" railroading Flynn.

Former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul said Thursday that Vladimir Putin's multi-pronged attack on the U.S. presidential election won him just what he wanted: the "chaos" created by Donald Trump.

Flynn's supporters have long insisted he didn't lie to the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, who included Peter Strozk, a senior agent later dismissed because of embarrasing texts he exchanged with now-former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page.

The request followed Flynn legal team's bombshell allegation that then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pushed Flynn not to have an attorney present during the questioning that ultimately led to his guilty plea on a single charge of lying to federal authorities. Flynn's lawyer noted the firings in his sentencing memo.

The filing also contains 50 letters of support for Flynn that attest to his character. And it described Flynn as a dedicated and fearless officer, noting that while deployed in Grenada, he once dove off a 40-foot cliff and saved two servicemen who had been swept out to sea. "He has cooperated extensively with several Department of Justice investigations", and did so before his guilty plea, the lawyers said.

Earlier on Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller's office said in a court filing that Manafort lied on five major issues after agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors, including his contact with administration officials and interactions with Konstantin Kilimnik, his Russian associate allegedly having ties to the Russian intelligence.

The defendants, their fortunes sliding in opposite directions, represent starkly different paths in Mueller's investigation - a model cooperator on one end and, prosecutors say, a dishonest and resistant witness on the other.

In a surprise move last week, Mueller recommended Flynn serve no prison time, citing his "substantial assistance" in the ongoing probe. "The report of an investigation into Trump's inaugural committee comes as NBC News confirms Donald Trump was the third person in the room in August of 2015 who was talking about hush money payments to women with Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker".
