Robert Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges in Michael Flynn probe

NBC News: Mueller has enough to bring charges in Flynn investigation

News reports that Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges against Donald Trump's former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.

The news comes less than a week after Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was arrested on charges stemming from Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The White House sent Trump to Asia to change the subject away from Russian Federation, but the likely Mike Flynn charges mean that news is still going to be focused on Russian Federation.

The investigators are speaking to multiple witnesses in coming days to gain more information surrounding Flynn's lobbying work, including whether he laundered money or lied to federal agents about his overseas contacts, according to three sources familiar with the investigation.

Mr Mueller's team are also said to be looking at whether the former National Security Adviser attempted to have Fethullah Gullen, an elderly Muslim cleric, extradited from the United States to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars.

Two sources told NBC that the elder Flynn said he would cooperate with investigators in order to help his son. On that same day, it was announced foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.




Mr Gullen is a rival of Recep Erdogan, the Turkish President.

The NBC report said that lawyers for Flynn and his son, Michael G. Flynn, who worked with his father, declined to comment as did Mueller's office. Alptekin is also the head of Inovo, a consulting firm.

Flynn raised eyebrows when he wrote an op-ed for The Hill, published on November 8, alleging Gulen helmed a "vast global network" that had "all the right markings to fit the description of a unsafe sleeper terror network".

The younger Flynn worked with his father, including doing work on the Trump campaign.

Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, could also be charged as part of the probe. Flynn later retroactively registered as a foreign lobbyist this year. Officials told NBC News that any quid-pro-quo agreement between Flynn and the Turkish government would be illegal.
