Michael Flynn lawyers cut ties with Trump legal team, report says

Michael Flynn lawyers cut ties with Trump legal team, report says

Michael Flynn's lawyers have told other defense lawyers in the ongoing Russian Federation probe, including President Donald Trump's legal team, that they're no longer able to share information, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.

That may mean, The New York Times muses, that Flynn's team is cooperating with the Mueller investigation.

It is not unusual for legal teams working for the defence to share information during large criminal investigations.

President Donald Trump again derided the National Football League on Friday amid news one of his former top official has cut off ties with the president's lawyers.

HR McMaster Said Trump Has Intelligence of a 'Kindergartner'
McMaster reportedly called the president an "idiot" with a kindergartener's intelligence at a dinner, according to a report . Sources tell Buzzfeed the dinner took place on July 18 at the Washington, D.C. restaurant Tosca.

Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, said that the decision to no longer share information "is not entirely unexpected" and shouldn't be seen as an indication of cooperation. The only reason for the split would be a conflict of interest.

Mueller is now conducting a special investigation to look into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Flynn was forced to leave amid reports he had misled the Vice President, Mike Pence, over the matter.

Attorneys for the White House and Flynn did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNBC.

Curry scores 35, Golden State Warriors rally to beat 76ers 124-116
He scored 46 points and added 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocked shots against the Los Angeles Lakers last week. Simmons is the first rookie to have at least 25 points, 10 rebounds and four steals in a game since Shane Battier in 2002.

The grand jury convened for the investigation and will soon have a chance to question individuals witnesses about Kian's activities, NBC News reported.

The paper is claiming this is a sign Flynn is discussing his options with prosecutors, and reported this could give investigators a look into the conduct of the Trump campaign during the election and during the first few weeks in office.

Terminating the information-sharing agreement is not in itself a sign that Flynn is working with Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
