However, the outlet said this alone did not prove that the former White House staffer was working together with investigators or was about to reach a deal with them, as it is a common legal practice that prevents a conflict of interests.
Meantime, the US media outlet has also specified this move as an alleged sign that former US national security adviser Michael Flynn appears to be cooperating with the Russia probe after notifying President Donald Trump’s team about suspension of further discussions of Mueller's ongoing investigation.
Previously, Sergey Kislyak, who finished his mission as the Russian ambassador to the US this summer, emphasized that during his meeting with Michael Flynn, the parties discussed issues solely important for Russian-US cooperation, mainly the fight against terrorism.
The special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating the Trump campaign over hints of alleged collusion with the Russian government to win the 2016 US presidential election. Russia has strongly denied the allegations, accusing those behind it of trying to deflect attention away from real problems in US domestic affairs.
