Flynn's lawyers say he hasn't joined lobbying firm, hours after firm's announcement

The Wall Street Journal reported that Flynn's move to the lobbying firm Stonington Global LLC has been canceled. "He was aware that a statement".

Flynn will serve as the global strategy director for the firm, which will represent US and foreign clients.

Flynn's cooperation is nearing an end at a potentially key juncture in the Russian Federation inquiry, with President Donald Trump's lawyers still sparring over whether they will submit to an interview with Mueller's team and as Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, weighs whether he will cooperate with federal prosecutors investigating his business dealings in a separate federal inquiry.

In a statement about the move, Flynn said he is "excited to begin this new phase of my career".

As part of Flynn's plea deal, he agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors and his sentencing has been delayed.

Flynn has become an important exhibit for some Trump supporters who argue that the former general was mistreated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of a wide-ranging conspiracy to undermine the president.

Flynn's court appearance on Tuesday was his first since he pleaded guilty in December to lying to agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his discussions with Russia's ambassador to the United States regarding USA sanctions and a U.N. resolution related to Israel. "Its issuance now in his name appears to have been the result of a misunderstanding", Flynn attorneys Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony said in a statement to CNN.

Robert Kelner confirmed at the hearing that his client continues to cooperate with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of any links between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

U.S. Coast Guard rescues 11 passengers in Alaska plane crash
The pilot was flying from Prince of Wales Island and bound for Ketchikan when the crash occurred, according to the Troopers. Coast Guard has rescued 11 people after their charter plane crashed near Ketchikan, Alaska, July 10, 2018.

He served only 24 days as national security advisor in the White House early past year before he was forced out for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials about his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, then Russia's ambassador in Washington.

Flynn was a close advisor to Trump during the presidential campaign and was named to lead the white House national security council after Trump won the election. While the delay in sentencing indicates that Flynn is still playing an active role in the special counsel's investigation, today's hearing did not provide insight about the nature of his role.

Kelner said he did not expect material changes to the facts of the case going forward, an indication that evidence turned over by Mueller has not prompted a rethink of Flynn's plea agreement.

Flynn is one of several Trump campaign officials investigated by the Mueller probe.

It was not immediately clear from Tuesday's brief hearing before U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan what continuing obligation remained for Flynn before a sentencing hearing could be scheduled in the case. After Trump's victory in 2016, Flynn was named national security adviser but left the role shortly after Trump's inauguration amid controversy over his statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about conversations with Russia's ambassador.

Flynn Intel Group was required, under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, to register as a foreign agent as soon as it secured the contract with Inovo, but it did not do so until months later.

Some conservative activists have called for a "flash mob" of Flynn supporters to gather outside the courthouse Tuesday morning.

"Lock him up!" some shouted as Flynn's group walked to a waiting vehicle and drove away.
