Ex-Trump aide Flynn probed over secret Turkey dealings
12 November, 2017, 02:14 | Author: Malcolm Fuller
Federal investigators have been probing Flynn's lobbying efforts on behalf of Turkey, including an alleged meeting with senior Turkish officials in December 2016 where he was offered millions of dollars to secure the return of the Turkish president's chief rival to Turkey and see that a USA case against a Turkish national was dismissed.
"Under the alleged proposal, Mr. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr, were to be paid as much as $15 million for delivering Fethullah Gulen to the Turkish government, according to people with knowledge of discussions Mr. Flynn had with Turkish representatives", the Journal said.
The report does not expand on what exactly was discussed during that meeting in Washington, D.C., but investigators apparently learned about it while reviewing emails Flynn Intel Group sent to Rohrabacher's staff thanking them for the conversation.
While Flynn has had a relationship with Turkey, his counsel denies the Wall Street Journal's report, according to CNN.
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.
The discussions between Flynn and Turkish government reps "involved the possibility of transporting Mr. Gulen on a private jet to the Turkish prison island of Imrali". And as early as September of a year ago, he had discussions with Turkish officials to find ways to deliver on the Gulen plan, according to James Woolsey, the former Central Intelligence Agency director.

Flynn did not register with the US Justice Department as a foreign agent until March, a month after he was ousted from the White House following reports that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian officials. The discussions allegedly involved the possibility of transporting Mr. Gulen on a private jet to the Turkish prison island of Imrali, according to one of the people who has spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is not clear if any money changed hands or if any preparatory steps were taken.
Mr Mueller is increasing pressure on Mr Flynn following his indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, NBC News said.
The meeting happened, however, after Flynn had already been offered the job of national security adviser in the Trump White House.
"If Mueller has sufficient evidence that Flynn and his son were involved in this audacious plot to kidnap the cleric, the special counsel can use that to pressure the former Trump campaign associate to flip and tell the FBI everything he knows of relevance to the Russian Federation investigation".
This comes five days after NBC News reported that Mueller's team has "gathered enough evidence to bring charges" against Flynn and his son.
