Mueller has enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn

NBC News is reporting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has gathered enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn and his son Michael G. Flynn

According to NBC, the Justice Department is speaking to witnesses about Flynn's lobbying work, as well as the possibility that he laundered money or lied about his overseas contacts. He could be charged along with his father or separately, NBC reported.

Then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn sits before President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hold a joint press conference at the White House on February 10, 2017 in Washington, D.C. Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, worked closely with his father and the two could be indicted at the same time.

Sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News that Mr Mueller was putting pressure on Mr Flynn following the indictment and arrest of Paul Manafort, Mr Trump's former campaign chairman, last month. 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 alleged evidence against Mr Flynn, a retired army general, suggests Mr Mueller's probe is getting closer to the inner circle around Mr Trump. 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. Both are facing a 12-count indictment for conspiracy against the United States, laundering money, and acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign principal. As NBC News explained, he failed to register as a foreign lobbyist at the time, disclosing his work with a Dutch consulting firm only in March, well after he was sacked from the White House. It remained unclear Sunday if Mueller had plans to pursue charges against Flynn or his son.

Mr Mueller's team are also said to be looking at whether the former National Security Adviser attempted to have Fethullah Gullen, an elderly Muslim cleric, extradited from the USA to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars.

The report indicates that Mueller's investigation is moving at a quick, steady pace.

The investigation also led to charges against Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.
