I think you are right. If Flynn breaks his plea agreement, all of his other crimes will have to be prosecuted.

Flynn should quit while he's ahead.  At least before he really sticks his foot in his mouth or let's Barr do it for him.

Federal judge mulls contempt charge against Michael Flynn

Message 3 of 3

It would be ironic if Flynn got into more trouble for lying about not lying than he would have for just lying. 

 

 

A federal judge is signaling that he may pursue perjury or contempt charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn over his effort to abandon an earlier guilty plea to a charge of lying to the FBI.

The Justice Department moved last week to drop the prosecution of Flynn launched by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan threw a major stumbling block in front of that effort by announcing that he is appointing a former federal judge to advise the court on how to respond to the government’s motion.

Sullivan said he’s also asking the retired judge, John Gleeson, to recommend whether Flynn should face a criminal contempt charge for perjury—apparently for declaring under oath at two different court proceedings that he was guilty of lying to the FBI, before he reversed course an January and claimed he had never lied.
