Flynn's lawyers no longer sharing information with Trump's legal team

Now the New York Times is reporting Flynn's legal team has ended an agreement to share information about the Russian Federation probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, with lawyers representing Donald Trump and the White House.

The source added that the decision to cease informal information-sharing could be an indication Flynn is preparing to plead guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

There's no guarantee the two sides will reach a deal; Flynn might not have information Mueller wants or might not like the terms Mueller offers him.

Did Trump's legal team comment?

One reason it could become a conflict of interest to share information with other defense lawyers is if one client begins cooperating with prosecutors while others are still being investigated. At the time, Flynn denied having discussed USA sanctions with Kislyak, but the claim was false. According to CNN, he's also reportedly anxious about protecting his son, Michael Flynn Jr., from getting caught up in the probe.

The former National Security Adviser was sacked just 24 days into the administration after he reportedly lied to Vice President Mike Pence about a meeting he held with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. The Foreign Agents Registration Act requires people acting as agents of foreign entities to publicly disclose their relationship with foreign countries or businesses and financial compensation for such work.

Michael Flynn was the US President's National Security Advisor, before he resigned in Febuary after reports of the extent of his connections with a Russian ambassador were exposed in the press.

Sekulow reportedly said the development was "not entirely unexpected".

Flynn, a retired Army general, is a central figure in a federal investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether Trump aides colluded with alleged Russian efforts to boost his 2016 presidential campaign.

Mueller's rapidly progressing probe has already landed indictments against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates. They were indicted by Mueller's grand jury last month.
