Flynn legal team no longer discussing special counsel Russia probe with Trump lawyers

A member of President Trump's legal team confirmed the news to ABC.

The New York Times first broke the news, calling it an indication that Flynn may be cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal.

Sources familiar with the discussions between Flynn's legal team and the president's attorneys tell ABC News there was never a formal, signed joint defense agreement between Flynn's defense counsel and other targets of the Mueller probe.

However, the teams have at times engaged in privileged discussions.

“No one should draw the conclusion that this means anything about Gen. Flynn cooperating against the president,” Sekulow said.
