Michael Flynn withdraws guilty plea

Or rather, filed a motion to do so. It's awkward because it's so late in the process and the judge may be sort of pissed off. But aside from that he has a good case for his innocence, and likely even better once evidence is released.

The problem is that DOJ won't want to release it, and the judge has been sending mixed signals.

The immediate trigger for the motion appears to be a DOJ filing asking for prison time and saying Flynn did not cooperate, which is arguably a violation of their agreement. Of course, DOJ will argue Flynn broke the agreement first.

In my opinion, the malfeasance from DOJ invalidated any plea agreement.
