Former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn is moving to cooperate with a special prosecutor probing possible collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian election meddling, The New York Times reported on Friday. Lawyers for Michael Flynn notified the President’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller, the Times reported, citing four people involved in the case.
The development indicates that Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or is negotiating such a deal, the report said. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr Trump’s legal team about Mueller’s probe related to Russian interference in last year’s ballot, which saw Mr Trump defeat his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton. “That agreement has been terminated,” the Times’ sources said.
