Mere hours after the announcement was published introducing former national security adviser Michael Flynn as the global strategies director of new consulting firm Stonington Global LLC, Flynn's lawyers swooped, insisting that the announcement was a product of a "misunderstanding" and that Flynn was not a part of the new firm - at least not yet.
Flynn's presence in court in Washington served to puncture ongoing speculation by conservative media that Flynn's prosecution is falling apart and that the retired Army lieutenant general may withdraw his guilty plea in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
Asked about the statement from Flynn's attorneys, Muzin said he was unable to comment on the general's "considerations about the timing of the announcement" but still looked forward to "working together".
Sullivan agreed to the delay Tuesday, saying he didn't want to "micromanage" Flynn's cooperation with prosecutors.
Flynn has become an important exhibit for some Trump supporters who argue that the former general was mistreated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of a wide-ranging conspiracy to undermine the president.
The Tuesday hearing was called by Sullivan after Flynn and Mueller submitted a joint filing late last month asking the court to order a presentencing report - a report by a probation officer for sentencing - while postponing sentencing for a third time.

Flynn's court appearance on Tuesday was his first since he pleaded guilty in December to lying to agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his discussions with Russia's ambassador to the United States regarding US sanctions and a U.N. resolution related to Israel.
District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan gave a provisional deadline of August 24 to prosecutors with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to provide a report on Flynn's cooperation, making late October the earliest possible date for the sentencing hearing. It was the first time Flynn had appeared in court since his guilty plea a year ago to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian officials during the presidential transition and his Turkish lobbying work.
Rob Kelner, a lawyer for Flynn, said Flynn was eager to bring this chapter of his life to a close.
Besides Flynn, several other former Trump campaign associates also became cooperating witness to the Russian Federation probe after Mueller secured their guilty pleas. George Frey/Getty Images In addition to drawing scrutiny over his Russian Federation ties, Flynn was also under a separate FBI investigation for privately working as a paid lobbyist for the Turkish government during the election. He pleaded guilty past year to lying to federal agents about his contacts with Russians.
Prosecutors also asserted that Flynn lied to agents about a December 29, 2016 conversation about how Russian Federation might respond to sanctions the US government had levied over its election meddling.
"Lock him up!" some shouted as Flynn's group walked to a waiting auto and drove away.
He also revealed that the group has come across more than 30 cases of Russian women being "accosted" in the streets by male fans. France will take on either Croatia or England in the final at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on Sunday.
