>> Lawyers for President Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn told Trump's legal team they can no longer discuss the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to The New York Times. The Times reporting that Flynn's lawyers had been sharing information with Trump's legal team about special counsel Robert Muller's probe into whether Trump's aides colluded with Russia to undermine Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign.
The move signalling that Flynn may be cooperating with Muller's investigation, according to the Times. Flynn, a central figure in the special counsel probe, served 24 days as Trump's advisor. He was fired after it was discovered that he had misrepresented his contacts with a Russian diplomat to Vice President Mike Pence.
Russia denied interfering in the US election and Trump has denied there was any collusion.
