Mueller probes Flynn's role in alleged plan 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

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

Flynn is a central figure in Mueller's investigation because of conversations he had with then-Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak past year and because he waited until March to retroactively register with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for the work he did for a Turkish businessman. These include Flynn's partners, Bijan Kian and Brian McCauley, and Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn.

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.

Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) has long advocated for a friendlier relationship between the United States and Russian Federation.

However, Flynn's counsel did speak up this week following a report from the Wall Street Journal that Mueller was looking into reports that Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., planned to kidnap a Turkish official living in the us and bring him back to Turkey.

The Washington Post reported in May that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, also a California Republican, was secretly recorded telling other party members, in what seemed to be a joke, "There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump".

While Flynn has had a relationship with Turkey, his counsel denies the Wall Street Journal's report, according to CNN. "We should not provide him safe haven".

Mueller's team has also interviewed White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, the highest-level Trump aide known to have spoken with investigators, CNN reported Thursday.

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. Nor did the attorney representing the elder Flynn, Robert Kelner. 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.

It's still rather early in the morning, but I feel comfortable saying that the latest reporting on Michael Flynn, Donald Trump's former White House National Security Advisor, is going to be the craziest story of the day.

Martellus Bennett claimed by Patriots off waivers, per report
Things didn't work out exactly as expected but rejoining the Patriots puts him squarely back in the top 12 tight end conversation. Bennett has already been linked to the Patriots, whom he helped win February's Super Bowl in his lone season with New England.

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.
