George Papadopolous, former foreign policy adviser with the 2016 Trump campaign, is now a co-operating witness in special counsel Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.
While it hasn't been confirmed that there is any cooperation yet between Mueller and Flynn, the decision to part ways with the White House lawyers suggests that talks are at least underway between the two.
Republican strategist Rick Wilson predicted President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" brigade will turn on Mike Flynn now that he may be cooperating with investigators.
"The four people briefed on the matter spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly", the Times noted.
"Flynn may or may not have dirt on the [president], but he surely will roll over on Kush [ner], who will flip like a pancake on [Trump's alleged] obstruction", Eisen tweeted.
Preet Bharara, a former USA attorney who was sacked by Trump in March, tweeted on Friday that, for someone as burdened as Flynn, "flipping on others and cooperating with the prosecution is the only sane and rational move".
His ties to Russian Federation predated the campaign - he sat with President Vladimir V. Putin at a 2015 event in Moscow - and he was a point person on the transition team for dealing with Russian Federation.
Last December, Flynn spoke to Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about US sanctions against the Putin regime.
Flynn initially told investigators that he did not discuss sanctions with Kislyak during a December call, but when later pressed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, he changed his answer, claiming he didn't remember.
Mueller has been investigating the retired U.S. Army lieutenant general's role in $530,000 worth of lobbying work his now-defunct firm performed for a Turkish businessman during the final months of the 2016 presidential campaign. Days later, Comey turned over the government memorandum he had created detailing his one-on-one conversation with the president about Flynn's investigation to the New York Times.
The Wall Street Journalreported in August that Mueller is investigating whether Flynn secretly coordinated with Russian Federation to obtain any of the 33,000 emails Clinton destroyed after it was revealed she had used an unauthorized private email server while in the State Department.
In the months that followed, additional information surfaced that showed Flynn may not have been forthcoming about his financial ties to Russian entities.
The special counsel is also eyeing Flynn and hisson, Michael Flynn Jr., for offenses far more severe. Gülen has denied any involvement in the coup attempt. The report stated that it was the first clear indication that Flynn might be "negotiating a deal" with Mueller. Trump, for his part, claimed that he had only asked for Flynn's resignation because Flynn had misled Vice President Pence about the nature of those communications later on.
