NBC News: Mueller has enough to bring charges in Flynn investigation

Robert Mueller Warned “Stay out of President Trump’s Real Estate Business or…”

Sources told NBC that Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, could be indicted separately or with his dad. Federal investigators are also reportedly looking into allegations Flynn attempted to sidestep the extradition process and send the Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen, a rival of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, back to Turkey in exchange for a multi-million dollar fee. The Flynn charges will be more significant to the Russian Federation big picture because it will be the first time that a Trump administration official is charged in connection with the Russian Federation scandal.

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

According to NBC, Michael T. Flynn is being investigated for potential charges of money laundering and lying to federal officials about his foreign connections, NBC explained. The Justice Department believed Flynn was thus vulnerable to blackmail as a result.

It seems some in Washington weren't surprised by reports signaling Trump's former national security adviser may be the next person to face charges in Mueller's prove.

Sanders said that, in the weeks to come, the White House is likely to release the names of additional campaign staffers whose roles were limited to the preparation of coffee beverages, and that such names might include Jared Kushner and Donald Trump, Jr. It also means they are one step closer to President Trump.

Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn served as Trump's national security adviser for just 24 days until he was forced to quit due to accusations he had contact with Russia's ambassador to the USA and misled the White House about the conversations.

Mueller is leaning on Flynn to reveal more about the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, and may use his son as a means of leverage. On that same day, it was announced foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Flynn's stint as Trump's national security was short lived. 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.
