Mueller has enough to bring charges in Flynn investigation

News says Mueller's team is looking at possible money-laundering charges, lying to federal agents, and Flynn's role in a possible plan to remove an opponent of the Turkish president from the United States in exchange for millions of dollars.

However, the very next day it was announced that Mueller planned to file the first set of charges in his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, in a sign the probe would likely continue well into 2018.

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. They are former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and former campaign aides Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.

Flynn's son worked closely with his father and could be indicted at the same time as his dad. He could be charged along with his father or separately, NBC reported.

Additionally, Mueller's team is looking into whether Flynn tried to get rid of a rival to Turkish President Recep Erdogan for a fee of millions of dollars.

The connection to the Trump campaign seems to be based only in that Flynn was working for the campaign while also engaging in undisclosed lobbying work for Turkey, including lobbying the Obama administration to extradite Fethullah Gulen, whom Erdogan believes was responsible for the failed coup against him.

Mueller's team also subpoenaed the lobbying firm SGR LLC in August after Flynn Intel Group hired the firm to ostensibly "promote a good business climate in Turkey", The Washington Post reported.

If Flynn is charged, he would be the first individual to have worked for the Trump presidency accused of wrongdoing.

Bringing charges against Flynn would represent another major escalation in Mueller's probe into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. But cooperation from Flynn, who was national security adviser for only 24 days before he was sacked, could help his son avoid the worst penalties. Flynn did not register with the US Justice Department as a foreign agent until March 2017. A spokesman for the Special Counsel's Office declined Bustle's request for comment.
