Mike Flynn’s lawyers have just cut ties with Trump’s attorneys, signifying that they may have entered a plea deal with Mueller:
NY POST – Lawyers for former national security adviser Michael Flynn told President Trump’s attorneys they can no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election meddling — a sign that Flynn may be working with prosecutors, according to a report Thursday.
Flynn’s legal team had been sharing information with the president’s lawyers about Robert Mueller’s probe into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, the New York Times reported.
But Flynn’s lawyers cut ties with Trump’s attorneys, ending the information-sharing agreement, the paper reported, citing four people involved in the case.
Defense lawyers often share info during investigations but the practice is unethical when one client is cooperating with prosecutors and another is still being probed, the paper reported.
Mueller is investigating a private meeting between Flynn, a Russian ambassador and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, early in Trump’s presidency.

Sekulow points out that it is likely a plea deal, however that doesn’t mean it has anything to do with the president. We won’t know until more details emerge.
