Members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team met Monday with the lawyer for President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, ABC News reported.

The meeting further raises the possibility that both sides could be discussing a possible plea deal, the network news reported.

The meeting comes just days after Trump's legal team confirmed Flynn's attorney, Robert Kelner, notified them he was unable to have privileged talks about strategy in the case.

According to ABC News, the confirmation by Trump's lawyers is a possible sign Flynn was preparing to negotiate with prosecutors.

But Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump's legal team, told ABC News the break was "not entirely unexpected."

"No one should draw the conclusion that this means anything about Gen. Flynn cooperating against the president," Sekulow said.

The New York Times reported Flynn's lawyers had been sharing information with Trump's attorney during the special counsel's probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

But the newspaper cautioned that termination of talks between Flynn's attorney and Trump's lawyers does not prove Flynn is cooperating with Mueller. However, the Times noted it is unethical for lawyers to work together if one client is cooperating and another is still under investigation.
