According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, former US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn dismissed the legal team that represented him in his dealings with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe and retained a new counsel.

Reuters reports that the decision to dismiss lawyers Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony of Covington & Burling LLP comes ahead of Flynn’s sentencing, which was postponed in December after the judge criticized a memo filed by his lawyers to the court.
