Flynn, the former national security advisor to Donald Trump, pled guilty in December to charges concerning two statements he made.

As to the second, Flynn denied asking a Russian ambassador to delay or defeat a United Nations Security Council resolution. Flynn also denied receiving a response to the request.

The order grants both parties an additional 60 days to prepare for the sentencing hearing, or no later than August 24, 2018.
