Mueller Investigating Flynn's Role in Alleged Plot to Deliver Cleric to Turkey

A political enemy to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan cleric Fethullah Gulen could have been whisked out of the country by Michael Flynn and his son sources of the Wall Street Journal say

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into a plan involving Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., who would have been allegedly paid up to $15 million to get Gulen to the Turkish government.

It is unclear how Flynn, as national security adviser, could have successfully carried out either alleged request. Flynn's business partners and son, Michael G. Flynn, also attended, according to the NBC report.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian manipulation of the 2016 USA election, has already indicted Trump's former campaign manager and another senior fundraiser on charges including money laundering and a former foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to perjury. The committee asked government and military experts about efforts to track and mitigate asteroids, meteors and other "near-Earth objects".

Rohrabacher, a California Republican who has become notorious for his efforts to advance Russian interests as a member of the United States Congress, recently had his travel privileges restricted over fears that he has been compromised by Russian intelligence officials.

If Mueller and his team suspect Flynn tried to take official actions to benefit a foreign government, then anyone who tried to impede the investigation into Flynn's alleged misconduct might also face accusations of wrongdoing.

The company says the suspension is only temporary, and that it is working on a fix . "We should have stopped the current process at the beginning of the year", Ho said.

The NBC News report said the evidence was related to Flynn's lobbying work throughout the latter half of 2016 - while he was a top Trump campaign surrogate - for a businessman with ties to the Turkish government. "We should not provide him safe haven". All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. At the time, a spokesman for Flynn denied the allegation.

Flynn's attorneys responded to the report Friday, denying the claims. Less is known about his lobbying ties to Russian Federation, though he was paid $45,000 plus expenses for attending a gala in Moscow in December 2015 and being interviewed by RT, the Kremlin-financed cable TV news channel.

Flynn worked on behalf of the Turkish government before being named White House National Security Adviser for President Trump, but did not disclose his lobbying work for the country until March.

The Wall St Journal reported that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have asked at least four individuals about a meeting in mid-December in which Flynn and a representative from the Turkish government discussed putting Gulen on a private jet and carting him off to the Turkish prison island of Imrali. But today's news cycle has brought allegations against General Flynn, ranging from kidnapping to bribery, that are so outrageous and prejudicial that we are making an exception to our usual rule: "they are false", they wrote in a statement.
