A Split From Trump Indicates That Flynn Is Moving to Cooperate With Mueller

Attorneys for former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have informed President Donald Trump's legal team that they can no longer discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian activities during the 2016 election campaign, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Flynn's lawyers notified Trump's lawyers of the decision in the past few days, according to four people involved in the case who spoke to the newspaper.

The break-off in communications indicates, according to the Times, that Flynn is cooperating with Mueller's investigation.

Such a move isn't a definite sign Flynn is negotiating some sort of agreement.

Flynn is a central figure in the investigation after having played a key role in Trump's campaign, and briefly serving as his first national security advisor.

The inquiry has been gathering momentum and Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was recently indicted on a number of charges, brought by Mueller, including conspiracy against America - all of which he has denied. Trump fired Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May. It is also looking into possible collusion allegations between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

Two congressional officials involved in separate probes into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian Federation said one key area of investigation is whether Flynn or other advisers to Trump ever suggested USA economic sanctions on Russian Federation could be lifted in exchange for favorable business deals.

Trump fired Flynn on February 13, after disclosures that Flynn had discussed US sanctions on Russia with then Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak in December, the month before Trump took office, and later misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations.

Flynn's company has garnered heavy scrutiny since it was revealed that it was paid $530,000 for lobbying on behalf of a firm called Inovo BV, owned by a Turkish-American businessman.

The ending of the agreement was later confirmed by The Washington Post, while representives for both Flynn and Trump released no comment to the papers.
