(From FOXNews.com) A federal judge delayed sentencing once again for former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Tuesday, pushing off the case after a dramatic hearing.

During the sentencing hearing, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan tore into the defendant for his other alleged misdeeds. Sullivan called Flynn and his attorneys to the stand and asked a series of questions to ensure Flynn did in fact want to plead guilty. Flynn said he did not want to withdraw his plea.

Later in the hearing, though, Sullivan ripped into Flynn, calling his plea "very serious." The judge even asked prosecutors if Flynn could have been charged with treason, which they hesitated to answer.

Arguably, you sold your country out," Sullivan told Flynn, saying he would not hide his "disgust" or "disdain" for the offense.
