Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges in Flynn investigation

Recommended Posts

Federal investigators have gathered enough evidence to bring charges in their investigation of President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his son as part of the probe into Russia's intervention in the 2016 election, according to multiple sources familiar with the investigation. 

Michael T. Flynn, who was fired after just 24 days on the job, was one of the first Trump associates to come under scrutiny in the federal probe now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign. 

Mueller is applying renewed pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, three sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News.

The investigators are speaking to multiple witnesses in coming days to gain more information surrounding Flynn's lobbying work, including whether he laundered money or lied to federal agents about his overseas contacts, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. 

Mueller's team is also examining whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the U.S. to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, two officials said. 

A spokesperson for the special counsel had no comment.

Mueller's mandate gives him permission to investigate "any matters" that arise out of his investigation into Russia's election interference and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow. Legal experts have speculated that Mueller will try to pressure Flynn to get him to cooperate in the probe.

Trump waited nearly three weeks to fire Flynn after former acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned him that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail over his conversations with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

Trump also ignored advice by President Barack Obama — who fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 — to steer clear of him entirely.

 

 

The president also asked former FBI director James Comey to "let go" of the FBI's investigation into Flynn's activities during a February meeting shortly after Flynn was forced to resign. 

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent Vice President Mike Pence a letter on November 18 requesting more information about the potential conflicts of interest posed by Flynn's lobbying work.

But Pence told Fox earlier this year that he first heard about Flynn's undisclosed lobbying work after reports surfaced in March that Flynn had registered as a foreign agent with the Justice Department.

Flynn was paid $500,000 last year by the businessman, Ekim Alptekin, who is a member of a Turkish economic-relations board run by an appointee of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Alptekin is also the head of Inovo, a consulting firm.

Just the fact that Trump failed to heed the clear warnings about Flynn makes him impeachable based on incompetence. 

 

The fact that he pressured the AG and FBI to not investigate and impeed justice, eventually firing Comey, is a clear sign that he is aware that Flynn can destroy his presidency.

Staggering incompetence, I hope this Investigation brings Pence down as well.
