President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a cooperating witness in the ongoing Russia investigation, appears to have become a valuable source of information in special counsel Robert Mueller's work, and according to a court filing Friday.

We know that because Mueller requested another two-month delay before Flynn's sentencing. NBC reporter Ken Dilianian explained what that means on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" with Nicolle Wallace.

"We have to be careful about reading too much into this," he said, "but the fact that they are continuing to delay Mike Flynn's sentence, Mike Flynn's cooperating with Robert Mueller's investigation, suggests that he still has a lot more to give them."

He continued: "And you can contrast that with George Papadopoulos, another Trump campaign aide, who pleaded guilty and was nominally cooperating, his sentencing has been scheduled for September. So they're sort of done with him, it appears at this point. But Flynn may have a lot more to say."
