Obama's security team asked for Trump's sign-off, as the plan would likely take place after Trump's inauguration.
Reuters say sources familiar with the current FBI and Congressional investigations into the matter say Michael Flynn and other advisers exchanged at least 18 undisclosed calls and emails with Russian officials in the last seven months of the 2016 presidential election campaign.
Those aren't the Flynn contacts with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that were already known.
US President Trump exits Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC, on May 13, 2017.
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is not cooperating with a Senate committee investigating him and may reject its subpoena, the panel's chairman said Thursday.
He failed to file documents with the Justice Department declaring he was a foreign agent until March, weeks after he resigned.
Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe has acknowledged to federal lawmakers that an investigation exists into a possible association between the Trump team and Russian operatives to steer the election in Trump's favor, the Times reported. The White House, in return, said it felt Flynn deserved "due process", and it downplayed the severity of Yates' early warning.
But according to friends of the retired Army general, Trump insisted he take the position, and Flynn, "reluctant but honored" by the offer, accepted.

Trump has grown obsessed with defending the tough-talking 58-year old general, repeatedly telling aides and associates in private that Flynn was a "good man".
A White House adviser told Politico that even after Trump chose to fire Flynn, the president speculated two days later about the possibility of reversing his decision.
Flynn, though, has now come under scrutiny for a more diverse array of crimes, but FARA violations are low on the list of DOJ's investigations amid continuing probes into Russia's meddling into the 2016 election, according to Reid.
On November 8-the same day Trump was elected-Flynn published an op-ed in The Hill, championing improved relations between Turkey and America, and describing Gulen as a "shady Islamic Mullah".
Flynn's lawyer declined to comment.
Former FBI director James Comey, fired by Trump on May 9, has said Trump tried to get him to drop the Flynn investigation.
