The Mueller team added that the claim was to limit the ongoing Russian Federation interference investigation.
The decision to recommend no jail time comes in a memo to be sent to the judge overseeing Mr Flynn's sentencing.
Under federal guidelines, the retired Army lieutenant general's crime carries a penalty of up to six months in prison. A section on the SCO's Russian Federation investigation revealed some of Flynn's help regarding the Trump transition team and Russian Federation. As part of his plea agreement, Flynn agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.
The criminal charges included five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate.

Police say there is enough evidence to charge Elovitch with bribery, interfering with an investigation, and financial crimes. He is also suspected of negotiating favorable press coverage with the Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes in Case 2000.
He then campaigned vigorously for Trump in 2016, encouraging audience members during his speaking turn at the Republican national convention in Cleveland, who were chanting "Lock her up!" when he mentioned Hillary Clinton's name.
Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, pleaded guilty last week to lying to Congress about the president's business dealings in Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign.
Mueller's team also entered a deal last week with former longtime Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, after he pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress regarding his description of the Trump Organization's plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
But Flynn has largely remained out of the public eye, appearing only a handful of times in media interviews or campaign events, and he has strictly avoided criticizing the Mueller probe despite widespread encouragement from his supporters to go on the offensive.
The president's critics contend such statements about individuals who refuse to testify against him or give up potentially damaging information are signs he might pardon them, should they face federal charges. One knowledgeable source said Flynn's cooperation largely took place immediately following his December 2017 court appearance.

But his lawyers, in a sentencing memorandum filed late Friday night, offered the fullest explanation yet for Cohen's motivation in switching sides and joining the government team, as prosecutors like to say.
