A federal judge delayed the sentencing of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn Tuesday afternoon; halting the proceedings for at least 90 days after Flynn confirmed his guilty plea of lying to FBI agents.

“Flynn’s sentencing hearing was abruptly delayed shortly thereafter, as Judge Emmet Sullivan warned Flynn that if he did not postpone the hearing the judge might give him time in jail,” writes CNBC.

“I cannot assure you that if you proceed today, you will not receive a sentence of incarceration,” Judge Emmet Sullivan told the former Trump advisor should he refuse to accept the delay and proceed with sentencing.

“If you want to postpone this, and come back at some later point … that’s fine with me,” said the judge. “I have to caution you that the sentence imposed today may not be the same sentence you would get after cooperation ends.

The United States military confirmed Monday that multiple air strikes have killed at least 62 “extremists” from the Islamist al-Shabab terror organization over the weekend; saying the operation was intended to deny the group “safe havens” in Somalia.

According to the BBC, four airstrikes on Saturday killed 34 fighters while two airstrikes on Sunday killed an additional 28.

“Alongside our Somali and international partners, we are committed to preventing al-Shabab from taking advantage of safe havens from which they can build capacity and attack the people of Somalia,” the US Africa Command said.

The strikes were launched from an American Air Force base in nearby Djibouti.

“The strike has neutralized an imminent attack,” said one Somali government official.
