Michael Flynn's legal team has notified President Trump's lawyers that they are no longer willing to discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the New York Times reports. Michael Schmidt, the lead reporter on the story, says that's "the clearest indication to date that Flynn is cooperating with Mueller" or is planning to.

Why it matters: We know Mueller struck a deal with George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the campaign. A deal with Flynn, who served as Trump's National Security Advisor, could shed light on events both during the campaign and after Trump took office.
