Where is the big Mueller news we were told to expect today?

Michael Flynn sentencing memo expected from Mueller Tuesday

Every news outlet in the country was telling us to expect LOTS of new Mueller evidence TODAY in the 'sentencing memo' that was to be filed in the Flynn case.

From: [www.cbsnews.com]

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office is expected to file a sentencing memo for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Tuesday, which will contain the special counsel's recommended sentence. The memo is also likely to lay out the extent of Flynn's cooperation with the government after he admitted last December that he lied to the FBI about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Beyond illuminating the extent of Flynn's cooperation with Mueller, the memo could provide a window into what the special counsel has found so far in its probe, which began in May 2017.

Chris Hayes is talking about that right now. Most of the information regarding the investigation is redacted; no new information.

They are also saying at least 6 months to go in the investigation; so reports that this was winding down are probably wrong too.

different topic..what'd you think of the news that Seattle is getting an NHL expansion team? I've never followed hockey, maybe I will now. I wanted an NBA team back, but they decided to make a hockey rink instead. Oh well...

I think it fell in the same news hole that consumed Trump telling us all about the Khashoggi murder unexplained disappearance.

I've been following this for a while - don't fret. They are likely to get a BB team eventually, but the NBA wasn't ready while the NHL was.

And I think it's GREAT. Personally because my niece is going to Seattle U and her dad and I LOVE going to games together. A road trip up north would be a BLAST.

But also good for the league - there should be a great rivalry with Vancouver. And the 'Pacific' Division will now feature teams that are actually close to the ocean.

I know you're a sport fan - GIVE IT A TRY when the time comes.

I've taken many very much NON sport fans to NHL games and so far, every one of them left being a fan of the game. The difference in seeing NHL live vs TV is way bigger than any other US sport. Go with someone that knows the game and can answer your questions on the fly.

You will love it - I promise!

...although this is is interesting tidbit:

Citing 'substantial assistance' to probe, Mueller recommends no prison time for former Trump adviser Michael Flynn

Oh my. This is going to drive a certain Twitterer around the bend...

(PS- I have no love for Cohen, but I think it's important that the folks that have owned up to Mueller don't end up in a worse situation than folks like Stone or Manafort who may win a Trumpian pardon (on Federal charges, at least)).

I hope your niece will love Seattle U, I did a graduate degree there 2015-2017 and had a great experience.

I will def give it a try! I went to a minor league game a few years ago, Everett Silvertips and honestly couldn't follow it that well. It does seem to help to know the rules at least a bit. Yes the rivalry with Vancouver will be fun.

And since the first American team to win a Stanley Cup was from Seattle (101 years ago...) we're due for another.

Here's a little more:

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, a bombshell court document filed Tuesday says.

Weren't we assured by the Trumpies that all speculation of such contacts was feverish nonsense? (I know, it seems like a loong time ago now, doesn't it?)

I was thinking the big news about Mueller's investigation will come in the court docs related to Manafort lying in violation of the plea, and I seemed to remember that getting delayed. That allows Mueller to release info about the scope of the investigation and can bypass Justice review of the contents of any official report.

The folks at MSNBC need to stop speculating about what is going to happen when. They pretty much always set themselves up for disappointment. On just the one episode last night, Rachel Maddow assumed that we would get to read the sentencing memo and that Jeffrey Epstein's miserable life was going to be exposed in full detail in that trial. Better dial back on the projections, Rachel.

....it was heavily redacted so basically it gave no information.....they recommended no prison time so Flynn must have given something very important up......
