Mueller Has the Evidence to Charge Flynn

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

Special Counsel Robert Mueller now has sufficient evidence to bring charges against President Trump's former national security advisor Michael T. Flynn and his son, NBC News announced today, citing multiple sources familiar with Mueller's investigation.

The investigation into President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his son is part of Mueller's probe into Russia's possible intervention in the 2016 presidential election.

Last week, Mueller indicted Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, along with his former business associate, on 12 counts, including money laundering and conspiracy against the United States.

Additionally, on Monday, investigators revealed that an unpaid foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, George Papadopolous, had pleaded guilty to lying to federal officials.

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

Flynn's work as a lobbyist is under scrutiny.

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 risky sleeper terror network".

Michael G. Flynn worked with his father, and briefly worked on Trump's presidential transition. As of Sunday afternoon, however, it was unclear exactly what charges the younger Flynn might face or what investigators were focusing on.

Bringing charges against Flynn would represent another major escalation in Mueller's probe into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. It remained unclear Sunday if Mueller had plans to pursue charges against Flynn or his son. Flynn did not register with the US Justice Department as a foreign agent until March 2017. Robert Kelner, Flynn's lawyer, also declined to comment. Flynn Jr. served as chief of staff in his father's lobbying firm, Flynn Intel Group, which the elder Flynn founded after being forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.
