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

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

Mueller has allegedly collected enough evidence as part of the probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election to file charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son, according to NBC News.

The special counsel, who is leading the probe into possible collusion between Mr Trump's team and Russian Federation during last year's presidential election campaign, is said to have uncovered evidence that Mr Flynn acted improperly in relation to his work lobbying for foreign governments.

The elder Flynn served in his role at the White House for only 24 days before being fired for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and several others about conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

News reported that Mueller's team plans to speak to multiple witness in coming days to get more details about Flynn's lobbying work, with an eye toward determining if he laundered money, or lied to federal authorities about his contacts overseas.

They are also investigating whether he attempted to orchestrate the extradition of Fethullah Gulen from the U.S. to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars.

Three sources are telling NBC News that Mueller is "applying renewed pressure on Flynn" following the indictment of Paul Manafort. On that same day, it was announced foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Flynn's son, also named Michael, worked on President Trump's campaign and briefly on the administration's transition team. Alptekin is also the head of Inovo, a consulting firm.

Flynn was paid more than $500,000 a year ago for work that benefited Turkey, according to the Justice Department.

It seems that the objective of bringing or threatening to bring charges against Flynn's son is to intimidate Flynn into protecting his son. The inquiries are said to relate to his lobbying work and will investigate whether he laundered money or lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his work. In addition to co-founding and working for Flynn Intel Group, he joined Flynn during a trip to Moscow in December 2015, NBC News reported, during which Flynn was paid $34,000 to deliver a speech at an event celebrating the state-sponsored news agency RT.
