Federal judge mulls contempt charge against Michael Flynn.

  • A federal judge signaled he may pursue perjury or contempt charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
  • U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said he’s asking a retired judge, John Gleeson, to recommend whether Flynn should face a criminal contempt charge for perjury for declaring under oath that he was guilty of lying to the FBI, before he reversed course in January and claimed he had never lied.
  • The Justice Department moved last week to drop the prosecution of Flynn.
