Mueller Has Evidence To Bring Charges Against General Flynn, His Son

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

Special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly has enough evidence to bring charges in the investigation into Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor under President Donald Trump, and his son.

Citing multiple sources familiar with the investigation, NBC said Mueller's team was looking at possible charges of money laundering and lying to federal agents, and Flynn's role in a possible plan to remove an opponent of the Turkish president from the U.S. in exchange for millions of dollars.

Mueller is pressuring Flynn to cooperate with the investigation and is apparently using the former national security adviser's son as leverage.

Flynn was paid $500,000 previous year by the businessman, Ekim Alptekin, who is a member of a Turkish economic-relations board run by an appointee of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Flynn's firm was tasked with fomenting dissent inside Turkey, and with lobbying the United States government to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric living in Pennsylvania, who Erdogan believes is responsible for planning last year's attempted coup.

Drug take back event set for Saturday
The Tallahassee Police Department is taking part once again the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This event will give the public an opportunity to dispose of any unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Mueller is increasing pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Manafort, the NBC report said. The Justice Department believed Flynn was thus vulnerable to blackmail as a result.

It was reported that Mr Flynn could face less severe charges if he cooperates with Mr Mueller's team and that could also benefit his son. 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.

Trump and his officials downplayed earlier arrests due to their work on the campaign rather than the administration, a charge for Flynn could would see that argument quashed.

NBC News did not receive comment from the special counsel's spokesperson. Flynn Jr. served as chief of staff in his father's lobbying firm, Flynn Intel Group, which the elder Flynn founded after being forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.
