Update December 4, 2018- Breaking now: Mueller will recommend no jail time for Flynn. That is because Mueller has no case, as I detailed below.
Update June 29, 2018- Mueller’s team filed a one-page motion in court today to delay again the sentencing of Michael Flynn, meaning his guilty plea is still not finalized and he can rescind or fight the charges. Given that the FBI agent in charge of allegedly catching Flynn in the act of perjury was Peter Strzok, now disgraced and ousted, this likely means that Mueller has no case that would stand up in a jury trial.
Update February 15, 2018- Flynn’s sentencing has been postponed until May, and the new judge is hostile to the federal prosecutors.
Update December 7, 2017- The judge overseeing this case has now recused himself for unknown reasons. This case stinks to high heaven.

I spoke today with a senior member of the Trump legal team. I asked them whether the Michael Flynn plea bargain deal, where he agreed to plead guilty to lying to the FBI, was irreversible. It is not. No judge has signed off on it yet.
I then asked whether they were considering, in the light of the news that the top FBI investigators who trapped Flynn into the plea days before being fired by Robert Mueller for sending pro-Hillary Clinton messages to one another, having Flynn rescind the plea. While the person I spoke with is not Flynn’s lawyer, he gave me a detailed legal analysis for why it would be very feasible and proper for Flynn to take back his guilty plea.
I have not spoken to any of Michael Flynn’s lawyers, but I can say that The White House is aware of the above and that they are contemplating such a development, should it happen. If Flynn were to rescind his please, it is unlikely that federal prosecutors would be able to convict him of any crime in criminal court given the reasonable doubt created by the bias among the FBI investigators. The entire Muller special investigation would also be dealt a blow to credibility.
