That's according to a court filing from prosecutors Thursday that describes the extent of Flynn's cooperation with the probe. But, prosecutors said that he provided a voicemail recording of one of the contacts.

In a separate court filing, Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered prosecutors to turn over redacted portions of Mr. Mueller's report, which would make them public.

No other details were provided in the filing, but the Mueller report noted that President Donald Trump's personal lawyer left a voicemail message for Flynn in late November 2017 that addressed the possibility of him cooperating with the government.

Flynn "informed the government of multiple instances, both before and after his guilty plea, where either he or his attorneys received communications from persons connected to the Administration or Congress that could have affected both his willingness to cooperate and the completeness of that cooperation", Mueller wrote in a memo originally submitted ahead of Flynn's planned sentencing on December 18, 2018. And that if Flynn cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe - as he in the end did - it might per chance per chance bear detrimental consequences for the administration.

In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to charges of lying to FBI investigators about those conversations, and he agreed to cooperate with law enforcement probing wider interactions with Russian officials.

Mueller's office had previously told the court that Flynn should receive little to no jail time, because he provided investigators with "substantial assistance" in the special counsel's investigation into Russian election interference.

Key events raising tensions in the Persian Gulf
Trump has ordered a beefing up of US military assets in the Middle East and Persian Gulf, citing possible threats from Iran . There have been media reports that some senior officials in the US administration are pushing for more pressure on Iran.

The Mueller team analyzed the Dowd call to Kelner and other allies' outreach to Flynn for possible obstruction of justice, but ultimately determined the evidence of Trump's intent was "inconclusive".

Mueller charged several former Trump advisers in addition to Flynn with lying or witness tampering.

Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow said they never spoke with Flynn or his attorney.

Special counsel Robert Mueller departs after having dinner at Martin's Tavern in Georgetown, May 6, 2019, in Washington.

And then there used to be this tweet, in December 2018, as Flynn's sentencing story used to be about to be published: "Genuine success this present day in court docket to General Michael Flynn". During that meeting, Obama warned Trump that he should not hire Flynn as his national security adviser. The new disclosures were made at prosecutors' request. That included a discussion by unnamed campaign officials of reaching out to WikiLeaks after it had released emails the Russians had stolen from the Clinton campaign.

By March 2017, Trump had taken to Twitter to make certain that he used to be aloof in the abet of Flynn.

House Democrats have flat-out refused to accept Mueller's final report in recent weeks; calling the Attorney General's summary "slanted" in favor of the President.
