Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn will be sentenced later this month for his role in the Russia meddling probe.  Flynn pleaded guilty last year to lying to the FBI about a conversation he had with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.  Prosecutors say Flynn has provided substantial aid, and that a sentence without prison time is appropriate and warranted. 

Several senators are convinced the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia knew about the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.  After a classified CIA briefing, South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham said it was virtually impossible for Khashoggi's killing to be carried out without the Crown Prince's knowledge.  Tennessee Republican Bob Corker said the Saudi leader would be convicted in 30 minutes in a fair trial. President Trump has cast doubts on speculation about the Crown Prince's involvement. 

Nearly 20 Denver police officers will be recognized for acts of kindness and compassion today.  A special ceremony is set for the City and County building at 11 a.m.  The honorees will receive a certificate of appreciation from Mayor Hancock.  The officers are also 2018 recipients of the Citizens Appreciate Police award for those who go above and beyond the call of duty.
