Robert Mueller sentencing memo regarding Michael Flynn

Former national security advisor Michael Flynn has given special counsel Robert Mueller "first-hand" details of contacts between President Donald Trump's transition team and Russian government officials, Mueller said in a bombshell court document filed Tuesday night.

Mueller in a sentencing memo said Flynn's "substantial assistance" to the special counsel's probe over the past year warrants a light criminal sentence — which could include no jail time for the retired Army lieutentant general.

That assistance, which consisted of 19 interviews with Mueller's office and Justice Department attorney, was not only related to Mueller's probe of the Trump campaign's and transition team's links or coordination with the Russian government, but also to another, unspecified "criminal investigation."

"The defendant provided firsthand information about the content and context of interactions between the transition team and Russian government officials," the memor says.

Mueller's memo almost completely blacks out the details of what Flynn told the special counsel's office.
