AP source: Flynn lawyers make a break with Trump team
WASHINGTON - A lawyer for former national security adviser Michael Flynn has told President Donald Trump's legal team that they are no longer communicating with them about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference.
That's according to a person familiar with the decision who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.
The decision could be a sign that Flynn is moving to cooperate with Mueller's investigation.
In large criminal investigations, defense lawyers routinely share information with each other. But it can become unethical to continue such communication if one of the potential targets is looking to negotiate a deal with prosecutors.
The New York Times first reported the decision.
Lawyers for Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., declined to comment Thursday.
