Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has hired a new lawyer, a former federal prosecutor who has repeatedly denigrated the Russia investigation. President Donald Trump took notice of Flynn's new legal representation, praising Sidney Powell on Twitter as a "GREAT LAWYER" and wishing them luck.

Powell responded, "Thank you Mr. President!!" and "I'm honored." Powell is an outspoken critic of the Russia probe. On Twitter, she advertises a T-shirt with images of special counsel Robert Mueller and his team bearing the slogan "Creeps on a Mission." Flynn, one of the earliest Trump aides to be caught up in the Russia probe, is awaiting sentencing for lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. In a recent court filing, Flynn's lawyers revealed that they'd been fired.
