Michael Flynn dismisses lawyers before his conviction



President Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn dismissed his lawyers before his conviction.

"General Flynn has notified the undersigned that he is terminating Covington & Burling LLP as his lawyer and has already obtained a new lawyer for the matter," his lawyers said in a lawsuit on Thursday.

A conviction in Flynn's case has not yet been scheduled and it was not immediately clear who had commissioned Flynn to represent him in court.

In December 2017, he pleaded guilty to lied to the FBI over his talks with former Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak. Flynn urged Russia not to escalate tensions with the US when the Obama administration imposed sanctions on Russia for interference in the 201

6 elections.

Flynn was to be convicted in December 2018, but was postponed when a federal judge proposed to wait until cooperation with Special Adviser Robert Muellers was completed.

The former Trump consultant also admitted to lobbying on behalf of the Turkish government during the 2016 elections without registering as a foreign agent with the Ministry of Justice. He was not charged in the case, but two of his business partners were. Flynn is working with prosecutors in the investigation.
