  • Flynn's lawyer meets with Mueller's team

Lawyers for Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump declined to comment. What Flynn - who's had a multitude of foreign contacts through his consulting firm - knows that might pertain to that investigation is mysterious at this point, but the fact that his lawyers have quit communicating with President Trump's lawyers could be a sign that Flynn may be ready to cooperate with Mueller.

ABC News reports that the two sides met on Monday morning, days after a separate report claimed that Flynn's legal team had stopped sharing information about the probe with Trump's attorneys. The special counsel is reportedly scrutinizing his belated registration as a foreign agent for more than $500,000 worth of lobbying work he did on behalf of the Turkish government; his appearance at a gala for a state-owned Russian media outlet, for which he was paid $33,000; his failure to disclose a trip to the Middle East as part of a broader plan to build nuclear plants in the region; and for his alleged role in a freaky plot to kidnap Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, which his lawyer has denied.

The news of the lawsuit comes a month after the first charges in Mueller's investigation were announced, against three people who had been involved in Trump's presidential campaign: Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.




Heightening the personal drama, Flynn's son is also thought to be a focus of the Mueller probe, a development the special counsel that could put more pressure on Flynn.

"That agreement has been terminated", the Times ' sources said. However, the Times noted it is unethical for lawyers to work together if one client is cooperating and another is still under investigation.

"No one should draw the conclusion that this means anything about Gen. Flynn cooperating against the president", Jay Sekulow, one of President Trump's legal team, told ABC News last week.
