WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lawyers for President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn asked a judge on Tuesday to delay his sentencing in a case that stemmed from an investigation of possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

 

The lawyers asked Judge Emmet Sullivan for a delay of 90 days while Flynn may need to provide more cooperation in the Russia probe being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

 

The request was made in a joint filing with Mueller, who said he took no position on Flynn's request for a delay.
