Special Counsel Mueller has enough evidence to charge Flynn, son

Special Counsel Mueller has enough evidence to charge Flynn, son

Mueller is reportedly looking into whether Flynn tried to extradite a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from the USA back to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars. The report also notes that if charged, Flynn would be "the first current or former Trump administration official formally accused of criminal wrongdoing" in Mueller's probe.

Mueller is pressuring Flynn to cooperate with the investigation and is apparently using the former national security adviser's son as leverage.

And having Flynn's son over a barrel could get him there.

The elder Flynn was sacked as national security adviser just 24 days into the job after misleading Vice President Mike Pence, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer about private conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Mueller's team plans to meet with more witnesses in the coming days to extract more information about Flynn. Shortly afterward, Flynn's son tweeted a 2013 photo of his father and Mueller sitting at the same table during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing: "A picture worth a thousand words.go nuts with your comments".

What's this deal with Turkey?

FBI investigators are reported to have arranged interviews with multiple witnesses in the coming days with the aim of gathering further evidence against Mr Flynn.

A former senior law enforcement official said that in the weeks after Trump's inauguration the Federal Bureau of Investigation was asked to conduct a new review of Turkey's 2016 request to extradite Fethullah Gulen, an elderly Muslim cleric living in the US whom President Erdogan blames for orchestrating a coup to overthrow him. It is unclear whether the request to investigate Gulen came from Flynn or through the typical diplomatic channels at the State Department.

If he is charged, Mr Flynn would be the fourth person to face prosecution as part of Mr Mueller's investigation.

The investigation also led to charges against Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. It also means they are one step closer to President Trump.
