Mueller may soon charge former Trump aide

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigators have enough evidence now to bring criminal charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and Flynn's son, NBC News reported Sunday, citing sources.

"Sometimes, we would ask for coffee and George was otherwise occupied", the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said.

NBC reported that federal investigators will speak to several witnesses over the next few days looking at the elder Flynn's lobbying efforts, whether he laundered money and whether he lied to investigators. Flynn Sr. was paid $530,000 for lobbying work benefiting Turkey, and only registered as foreign agent retroactively.

Sources also reportedly told NBC News that Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, might also be indicted either separately or along with his father.

Lawyers for Mr Flynn and his son, who worked with his father, declined to comment to NBC News. So far all those who have been charged were campaign officials. Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi wrote in a tweet published shortly after the news broke Sunday.

While it's unclear whether the request came from Flynn, Mueller's team appears to be interested in allegations made by ex-C.I.A. director James Woolsey that Flynn talked with Turkish officials about kidnapping Gulen in September 2016. It also means they are one step closer to President Trump.

Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election may be inside the White House soon.

Mueller is leaning on Flynn to reveal more about the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, and may use his son as a means of leverage.

President-elect Trump fired the junior Flynn from the transition team after Michael G. Flynn used Twitter to spread the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which involved Hillary Clinton and her Campaign Chairman John Podesta running a child trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizza restaurant.
