Mueller also said that under direction from a "very senior" member of the Trump team, reported to be Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Flynn successfully urged Russian Federation to vote against the resolution on Israel at the UN.
Mueller's team, in twomemos filed ahead of Flynn's December 18 sentencing, said that Flynn participated in 19 interviews with the special counsel or other DOJ officers and provided documents and communications.
Cohen's sentencing is scheduled for December 12, and prosecutors are set to submit their own sentencing memo in his case on Friday.
Trump said past year that Flynn was a "fine man", but he had to dismiss his national security adviser 21 days into the new administration because he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia's ambassador in Washington during the transition.
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano disagrees with speculation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is nearing the end game of his investigation. Not only did he draw notice to how soon into the investigation he agreed to cooperate, but he also pointed out how valuable his cooperation has been. Next was "the Special Counsel's Office's ("SCO") investigation concerning any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald J. Trump", followed by about one and a quarter lines of more redactions.
This came soon after Trump fired off a couple of other tweets declaring that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who is cooperating with the Mueller investigation, must be making up lies and shouldn't get any leniency for his work with federal prosecutors looking into Trump.
According to memos written by former FBI Director James Comey, Trump tried to protect Flynn by asking Comey to let the investigation into his false statements go.
Whatever it is that Flynn said, it's clear that Mueller liked it.
Mr Flynn's short tenure as Mr Trump's national security adviser ended in February 2017 after just 23 days. "It doesn't suggest to me that they're making a lot of headway on the substance of their investigation which is Russian collusion".
As part of his plea deal, Flynn said members of Trump's inner circle, including his son-in-law and White House aide Jared Kushner, were involved in - and at times directing - his actions in the weeks before Trump took office.
