Special counsel Robert Mueller did some legal work for a company that was part of a Middle East energy and arms project pushed by ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn — now a target of Mueller's Russia probe, CNN reported.

A Mueller spokesman told CNN he did litigation work last year for IronBridge while Mueller was a partner at the WilmerHale law firm — and wasn't listed in Mueller's ethics disclosure.

"The reporting requirement for public financial disclosure reports requires that you report any source that paid more than $5,000 for your personal services in any calendar year," Mueller's spokesman, Peter Carr, told CNN.

"In June 2016 while at Wilmer Hale, Mr. Mueller spent less than half an hour on an IronBridge litigation matter that was handled by another partner. That amount did not meet the reporting requirement."

It's not clear if Mueller's work for IronBridge would constitute a conflict for his handling of the Flynn investigation — or if it was part of a Justice Department review of Mueller's past work related to his appointment, CNN reported.
