Russia Probe: Michael Flynn reportedly to set to cooperate with inquiry after ending White House information deal

American media reports Flynn's legal team ended a deal to cooperate with Trump's lawyers over sharing information about the inquiry

Friday, November 24, 2017

A former high-ranking member of Donald Trump's administration is reportedly ready to cooperate with investigators looking into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

Michael Flynn was the US President's National Security Advisor, before he resigned in Febuary after reports of the extent of his connections with a Russian ambassador were exposed in the press. 

Flynn was forced to leave amid reports he had misled the Vice President, Mike Pence, over the matter. 

Now the New York Times is reporting Flynn's legal team has ended an agreement not to share information about the Russia probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, with lawyers representing Donald Trump and the White House. 

The paper is claiming this is a sign Flynn is discussing his options with prosecutors, and reported this could give investigators a look into the conduct of the Trump campaign during the election and during the first few weeks in office.

The ending of the agreement was later confirmed by The Washington Post, while representives for both Flynn and Trump released no comment to the papers.

The inquiry has been gathering momentum and Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was recently indicted on a number of charges, brought by Mueller, including conspiracy against America - all of which he has denied.
