Michael Flynn's Lawyers Have Stopped Communication With Trump's Lawyers
Michael Flynn's lawyers had been sharing information into his investigation by Mueller's team. They informed Trump's legal team that they would no longer share information with them. One of the implications of this decision by Flynn's legal team is that Flynn may be negotiating a deal with Mueller. This is typical in these kinds of investigations. Mueller may be offering Flynn more lenient treatment in exchange for information that he has about the Trump campaign. Flynn may or may not reach a deal with Mueller but it would be significant if he chose to do so. Flynn has information about Trump and his campaign because of his position in the campaign. Trump named Flynn as his national security chief after his election. Trump also asked FBI Director James Comey to "go easy on Flynn". Trump fired Comey after he refused to do so.
