Prosecutors from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office and defense lawyers asked a federal judge on Monday to schedule a sentencing date for U.S. President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to a joint court filing.

The lawyers on both sides proposed Nov. 28 as a possible date for Flynn to be sentenced. Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia, in exchange for cooperating with Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
