President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, may be moving to cooperate with the special counsel investigating ties between the Trump campaign and efforts by Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, The New York Times reported Thursday.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress in June that Trump asked him to end the bureau's investigation into Flynn's conversations with Kislyak they day after Flynn's resignation, telling him, "I hope you can let this go".
That may mean, The New York Times muses, that Flynn's team is cooperating with the Mueller investigation.
Prosecutors are especially interested in Kian's work on behalf behalf of Turkey, whose government earlier this year reportedly lobbied Flynn to illegally extract a controversial imam living in Pennsylvania just weeks before Donald Trump's Presidential inauguration.
Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, said that the decision to no longer share information "is not entirely unexpected" and shouldn't be seen as an indication of cooperation.

Lawyers can pull out of information-sharing arrangements for a variety of reasons, including concerns of potential conflicts of interest that may arise at a later date.
The move could indicate that Flynn's legal team either is cooperating with Mueller's investigators or is negotiating to do so.
Flynn departed the administration in disgrace amid revelations he lied about his contacts with Russia's Washington envoy Sergey Kislyak.
The former National Security Adviser was sacked just 24 days into the administration after he reportedly lied to Vice President Mike Pence about a meeting he held with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. They were indicted by Mueller's grand jury last month. But, according to the Times, it signals that Flynn is at least discussing the option with prosecutors.
