Former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn's cooperation in the Mueller Russia investigation is complete but he is continuing to assist in a federal probe, according to a court filing Tuesday night.

What they're saying: “While the defendant remains in a position to cooperate with law enforcement authorities, and could testify in the EDVA case should it proceed to trial, in the government’s view his cooperation is otherwise complete,” special counsel Robert Mueller wrote in the filing, Reuters news agency reports.

Details: Flynn’s lawyers asked in the joint status report for a 90-day delay to his sentencing, so he could cooperate with the federal investigation in the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) against his former business partner for unregistered lobbying on behalf of Turkey. Flynn had admitted during his plea hearing he had lobbied on behalf of the Turkish government, something he had previously denied.

The big picture: Flynn had previously requested his sentencing be delayed until his cooperation with Mueller was complete. He pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI in January of that year about the nature of his conversations with the then-Russian ambassador to the U.S.

China-Iran deal envisions massive investments from Beijing

China and Iran have negotiated a deal that would see massive investments flow into Iran, oil flow out, and collaboration increase on defense and intelligence.

Why it matters: If the proposals become reality, Chinese cash, telecom infrastructure, railways and ports could offer new life to Iran’s sanctions-choked economy — or, critics fear, leave it inescapably beholden to Beijing.

House Judiciary Committee releases transcript of Geoffrey Berman testimony

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday released the transcript of its closed-door interview with Geoffrey Berman, the former top federal prosecutor in Manhattan who was forced out by Attorney General Bill Barr last month.

Why it matters: House Democrats have seized on Berman's testimony, in which he claimed the attorney general sought to "entice" him into resigning so that he could be replaced by SEC chairman Jay Clayton, to bolster allegations that the Justice Department has been politicized under Barr.
