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

The Special Counsel Office is looking into whether the Russian government meddled in the 2016 presidential election

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. Sharing of information between a cooperative witness and a person or institution still under investigation is considered unethical.

The New York Times says the move is "an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal", although "the notification alone does not prove that Flynn is cooperating with Mueller".

Flynn resigned from the Trump's administration in February after it was revealed he misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

"No one should draw the conclusion that this means anything about General Flynn cooperating against the President", Sekulow added.

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.

The White House has said that neither Mr. Flynn nor other former aides has incriminating information to provide about Mr. Trump.

Months later, the company admitted in documents filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) that their work 'could be construed to have principally benefitted the Republic of Turkey'.

Flynn was sacked earlier this year for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. But, according to the Times, it signals that Flynn is at least discussing the option with prosecutors.

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.
