A federal judge said Tuesday that prosecutors no longer have to publicly file a transcript of the call between former adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the United States, reversing course from an order last month.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan had earlier directed prosecutors to make public details of a December 2016 call in which Flynn, President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, discussed sanctions with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

In a brief written order Tuesday, Sullivan said that “upon consideration of the government’s submissions in response to those orders, the government is not required to file any additional materials or information on the public docket.” He did not elaborate on why he had changed his mind.

Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his contact with Kislyak. His sentencing date was slated for December but postponed as his cooperation with the government continues, part of a bid to net a lighter sentence.
