Mueller Reportedly Has Enough Evidence to Charge Michael Flynn and His Son

The younger Flynn worked with his father, including doing work on the Trump campaign.

Flynn served 24 days as Trump's national security adviser but was sacked after it was discovered he had misrepresented his contacts with a Russian diplomat to Vice President Michael Pence.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime business associate Rick Gates were indicted early last week on 12 counts that include, conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. The retired army lieutenant general was sacked in February after less than a month on the job after it was revealed he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of his dealings and communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

The alleged evidence against Mr Flynn, a retired army general, suggests Mr Mueller's probe is getting closer to the inner circle around Mr Trump. Mr Flynn's possibly indictment would change that.

Federal investigators reportedly started interviewing witnesses about Flynn's lobbying work, and looked into whether that he tried to participate in a scheme to assist the Turkish government in exchange for millions of dollars.

FBI investigators are reported to have arranged interviews with multiple witnesses in the coming days with the aim of gathering further evidence against Mr Flynn.

Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, who worked closely with his father, accompanied him during the campaign and briefly worked on the presidential transition, could be indicted separately or at the same time as his father, according to three sources familiar with the investigation.

Mr Flynn has undertaken paid work as a lobbyist on behalf of the Turkish government. Erdogan has blamed Gulen for an attempted coup in 2016. According to two sources, however, the junior Flynn could limit potential legal consequences if he cooperates with investigators.

If he is charged, Mr Flynn would be the fourth person to face prosecution as part of Mr Mueller's investigation.
