Flynn's lawyers no longer sharing
information with Trump's legal team


Michael Flynn's lawyers have told other defense lawyers in the ongoing Russia probe, including President Donald Trump's legal team, that they're no longer able to share information, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.

The source added that the decision to cease informal information-sharing could be an indication Flynn is preparing to plead guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The New York Times first reported the change Thursday, citing four people involved with the case, and added that it could be "an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating ... a deal."

While Flynn's lawyers had previously shared information with Trump's team, the change does not necessarily indicate that Flynn is cooperating with Mueller.

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.​

The implication is that Mueller may now have better access to an administration insider.
iirc Flynn may have helped with Trump's campaign, but didn't Flynn also serve in the Trump administration for a few weeks?

With a thorough super-sleuth like Mueller on Trump's tail, Trump can't afford to relax & smile.

Meanwhile, let's hope VP Pence is preparing his inauguration speech.

Flynn and his son are in a bad bad legal position. The only legal currency available to them is their knowledge of illegal campaign deeds. A pardon will not help because Mueller has been coordinating his efforts with the New York Attorney General’s office. Pardons do not apply to state charges. Mueller will not offer a deal with the Flynn’s unless they have info implicating those higher up in the food chain. It is that basic folks.

The removal of Donald Trump and his imprisonment is the goal. Lets not lose sight of that. The big picture is that regardless it will be a break down of the Democratically electoral process and signal a willingness to move away from the shit stain of a document the Constitution. Slowly we are turning to a State ran single political nation. This is wonderful news. Thank you for bringing it to us Comrade imaginethat.
