Is Michael Flynn breaking from Team Trump?

  • Is Michael Flynn breaking from Team Trump?

Or so his lawyers have led the president's legal team to believe.

The legal manoeuvre, while not proving they have flipped and made a decision to co-operate with Mueller's investigators, "is the clearest indication we've seen to date that Flynn is co-operating with prosecutors", said former federal prosecutor Barak Cohen. However, CBS News confirmed that Mr. Trump's personal legal team does not consider this development necessarily harmful or threatening to the president.

Mr. Trump's lawyers speculate the charges could revolve around violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

"Not because Trump's charges would be the largest charges, but because he's the most important person in the hierarchy", Abramson said.

Last December, Flynn spoke to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about USA sanctions against the Putin regime.

It's possible that Flynn is merely in discussions with Mueller's office, and that those talks will ultimately fall through.

At the time, lawmakers said it would be premature to accept an immunity offer.

Preet Bharara to Michael Flynn: Time to cooperate with the feds. It's common for defense attorneys representing different clients targeted by the same investigation to share information with each other. And he nearly certainly has information they'd find interesting.

"But today's news cycle has brought allegations about General Flynn, ranging from kidnapping to bribery, that are so outrageous and prejudicial that we are making an exception to our usual rule: they are false", Flynn's lawyers, Robert Kelner, Stephen Anthony and Brian Smith, said in a statement.


Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen reports on a major development in the Russian Federation investigation.

In the months that followed, additional information surfaced that showed Flynn may not have been forthcoming about his financial ties to Russian entities. During the latter period, Flynn and the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, took a private meeting with Kislyak.

A month after the message from Trump, Flynn refused to hand over documents subpoenaed by a Senate panel.

Flynn has always been at the center of the investigation into Russian efforts to meddle in the election, as well as possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

He added that Flynn's testimony would also be key to establishing whether the president meets a legal threshold of having a "high likelihood" of knowledge that Russian Federation was committing computer crimes. In January, he told federal investigators that he had done no such thing. "The Manafort indictment didn't have anything to do with the campaign or Trump". Flynn's role within the White House was terminated just 23 days into the Trump presidency.

He speculated Flynn might still be at the first step towards cutting a deal - arranging a "proffer", in which prosecutors decide whether a defendant "is shooting straight" and is suitable for a co-operation arrangement.

Lewandowski, who worked with Flynn during the campaign season, said that 'Mike's not a bad guy. Former President Obama fired Flynn from that position in 2014, but he retained the clearance.

"If pardons are off the table, co-operation is likely the right move for Flynn", he wrote.
