Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team announced Monday that they are prepared to move forward with a sentencing hearing for Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser who pleaded guilty last December to lying to federal investigators about contacts with Russia’s ambassador. The joint status report to the court, signed by both Mueller and defense attorney Robert Kelner and tweeted by Atlantic reporter Natasha Bertrand, states that both parties are available for the hearing on November 28, or any of the seven business days that follow. This statement comes after Mueller repeatedly moved to delay the hearing throughout the summer. Flynn could face up to six months in prison once the sentencing is complete.
