Investigators have enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn, son

Investigators have enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn, son

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has collected sufficient evidence to charge Michael Flynn, US President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, and his son, NBC News reported on Monday, citing multiple sources familiar with the investigation. Federal investigators are also reportedly looking into allegations Flynn attempted to sidestep the extradition process and send the Turkish cleric Fethullah G├╝len, a rival of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, back to Turkey in exchange for a multi-million dollar fee.

On Oct. 27, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed the Trump administration viewed the Russian probe as "getting closer to conclusion" in an interview on Fox News' America's Newsroom.

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.

If the elder Flynn is indicted, it would be the first charges brought against someone who worked in the Trump White House.

Mr Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, were charged with 12 offences, including money laundering and conspiracy against the US.

Tourists will be banned from climbing Australia's UIuru
The Central Land Council (CLC), who represents Aboriginal people in Central Australia, welcomed the move. The latest statistics showed just 16 per cent of tourists climb Uluru, paving the way for the closure.

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

The NBC report said lawyers for Flynn and his son, Michael G Flynn, who worked with his father, declined to comment.

"End of the day, what we owe the American people is the truth and, most importantly, how we make sure that we don't have a foreign power and a foreign power like Russian Federation intervene again in our elections", said Senator Mark Warner. It was also unveiled that George Papadopoulos, a former Trump foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty over the summer to lying to federal prosecutors.

After Trump fired James Comey in May, the former FBI director testified that the president had suggested to him that the bureau drop a potential criminal investigation into Flynn.
