A judge has said that US President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flyn, sold out his country when he lied to the FBI about Russia contacts.The judge agreed to postpone sentencing upon request from Michael Flynn’s lawyers at court in Washington DC. Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the US. He is the first Trump administration figure to face sentencing in the probe into alleged Kremlin election meddling. Hours before the hearing, President Trump tweeted to Flynn: “Good luck today in court.”The Republican president regularly criticises the US justice department investigation into whether he or his aides colluded with an alleged Russian plot to sway the 2016 US election in Mr Trump’s favour. However, Judge Sullivan told Flynn: “This is a very serious offence. “A high-ranking senior official of the government making false statements to the FBI while on the physical premises of the White House.” At one point, Judge Sullivan asked the prosecutor whether the special counsel’s office had ever considered charging Flynn with treason. The judge told Flynn: “Arguably, you sold your country out.” Judge Sullivan also said he “can’t hide my disgust, my disdain” for the offence.Photo Credit: Getty
