Bloomberg reports that the legal team for former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has stopped sharing information with President Donald Trump’s lawyers about the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, said two people familiar with the probe.
The move signals that Flynn, who was fired by the president in February, possibly in discussions of some kind with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The people who confirmed the decision by Flynn’s lawyers did so on condition of anonymity.
“None of this means there’s any action or discussions adverse to the president’s interests,” Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow said. Ty Cobb, a White House lawyer, declined to comment other than to say the White House is not interfering in the special counsel’s investigation.
