The next day, Flynn pled guilty to the offense, pursuant to a plea agreement before federal judge Rudolph Contreras.Less than a week later, for a still-unexplained reason, Flynn’s case was transferred to Judge Emmet Sullivan.
Shortly after the case was transferred, Sullivan entered a standing order in the case directing “the government to produce to defendant in a timely manner—including during plea negotiations—any evidence in its possession that is favorable to defendant and material either to defendant’s guilt or punishment.”
Sullivan further ordered the government, if it “has identified any information which is favorable to the defendant but which the government believes not to be material,” to “submit such information to the Court for in camera review.”After pleading guilty on December 1, 2017, Flynn continued to cooperate with the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion with Russia—a hoax, as we now know.
