Flynn 'under probe over Turkey deals'

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly probing the plan to kidnap a cleric put him on a private plane and fly him to a Turkish prison island- in which the two Flynn would be paid $15 million

NBC reported that the Turkish officials also wanted Flynn to engineer the release of Zarrab, who was arrested in Miami in March 2016 on charges of helping Iran skirt U.S. sanctions.

The meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20, while Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Michael Flynn and his son's alleged plan to forcibly remove a Muslim cleric from the United States and deliver him to Turkey, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Woolsey was a member of Flynn's firm, the Flynn Intel Group, according to a Justice Department filing by the firm and an archive of the company's website.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian manipulation of the 2016 U.S. 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.

News is reporting that "the meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20" previous year and "was arranged by his lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group". "We should not provide him safe haven". All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

Both the Wall Street Journal and NBC News report this morning that special counsel Robert Mueller has focused on former Gen. Michael Flynn and his son for a reported deal to allow Turkey to get their hands on exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The congressman's staff did not immediately return a request for comment Friday, a federal holiday.

Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign at the time. 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 allegedly discussed the plot at a meeting in NY in December 2016, when he was a member of then U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's transition team.

Mr Mueller is increasing pressure on Mr Flynn following his indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, NBC News said.

Flynn is also under investigation from various groups for payments from Kremlin-backed broadcaster RT and transition contacts with former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, which led to his firing as National Security Adviser. "But today's news cycle has brought allegations about 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 fake".

A grand jury impaneled by Mueller is continuing to interview witnesses with knowledge of Flynn's business activities over the next week, the two sources said.
