Mueller Probe: Why Is Michael Flynn Back in Court?

Flynn will be the director of global strategy at Stonington Global LLC.
The lawyer, Robert Kelner, said Flynn - who pleaded guilty, as part of a probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 election campaign - "was aware that a statement was being drafted, but he did not intend that it be issued at this time". He was aware that a statement was being drafted, but he did not intend that it be issued at this time.
As he awaits sentencing for lying to federal investigators, he is going into business with Washington lobbyist Nick Muzin and his NY partner Joey Allaham with a new firm called Stonington Global LLC, they told The Wall Street Journal. Flynn has been cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller for months, and has seen his sentencing date repeatedly pushed back, indicating the Mueller is still mining valuable information from the retired general.
In a statement about the move, Flynn said he is "excited to begin this new phase of my career". And Sullivan told both sides he wouldn't "micromanage" Flynn's cooperation with Mueller's investigation.
According to Zoe Tillman of BuzzFeed, U.S. Federal Judge Emmitt Sullivan told Flynn that he could be sentenced as soon as late October. The special counsel's office and Flynn's lawyers recently asked the probation office to prepare a pre-sentence report, a standard step that normally involves an investigation into a convicted criminal's background to document extenuating circumstances that might lessen the sentence, or a criminal history to justify a heavier sentence.
Flynn's court appearance on Tuesday was his first since he pleaded guilty in December to lying to agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his discussions with Russia's ambassador to the United States regarding USA sanctions and a U.N. resolution related to Israel. He said its issuance appeared to be the result of a misunderstanding. Through the year and a half of political turmoil sparked by his 24-day term as national security adviser, Flynn has amassed a base of supporters who don't believe he lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In a December appearance before U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras, Flynn said he'd had conversations with now-former Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak in December 2016, as Trump prepared for the presidency.
Flynn's mere presence in court in Washington could serve to puncture ongoing speculation by conservative media that Mueller's case against Flynn is falling apart and that the former national security adviser may withdraw his guilty plea.
In the seven months since Flynn pleaded guilty, it's unclear what assistance he's provided to prosecutors. Paul Manafort, a former Trump election campaign chairman, faces charges that include conspiring to launder money and failing to register as a foreign agent in connection with his lobbying for the previously pro-Russia Ukrainian government, bank fraud and filing false tax returns. Not long after that he was convicted of lying to federal investigators - and forced to confess that he had been secretly operating as a paid agent of Turkey's Islamist governmentwhile serving as a top foreign policy adviser to the Republican presidential nominee.
Flynn arrived at the courthouse Tuesday morning with his wife, Lori, where small groups of rival protesters waved signs and shouted both words of encouragement and derision at the former general.
