National Security Adviser Mike Flynn listens to President Trump during a listening session with cyber security experts within the Roosevelt Room the White House in Washington, DC on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.

More evidence emerged Monday that will former national security adviser Michael Flynn may be seeking to cooperate with investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Flynn attorney Robert Kelner visited the offices of the special counsel in Washington, D.C., Monday morning, ABC News reported, amid speculation that will Flynn had begun working to reach a plea deal.

The visit comes on the heels of reports, confirmed by the president’s attorneys, that will Flynn’s lawyers had stopped communicating with the president’s legal team regarding the criminal investigation.

The brand-new York Times was the first to report on the split between the Trump as well as Flynn teams.

The former FBI director can be investigating the Trump campaign, Russian meddling within the U.S. election last year as well as some other related concerns.

The most likely explanation for the two camps to cut off contact was that will Flynn had started off cooperating with investigators, Sol Wisenberg, former deputy independent counsel under Kenneth Starr, told CNBC last week.

Kelner, who did not respond to a request for comment through CNBC, released a statement in March which stoked reports that will Flynn was seeking immunity.

Flynn “includes a story to tell, as well as he very much wants to tell This specific, should the circumstances permit,” Kelner wrote.

Flynn can be facing federal, congressional, as well as military investigations into undisclosed payments through foreign governments, including Russia as well as Turkey.

Flynn resigned as national security adviser after 24 days following reports that will he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about a call having a top Russian official regarding U.S. sanctions on the country.

Pressure on Flynn to cooperate with investigators increased after prosecutors began focusing on his son, Michael G. Flynn, ABC News reported, citing sources familiar with the investigation.

A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment to CNBC.
