FBI Russia investigation looking into Rohrabacher meeting with former Trump advisor

A political enemy to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan cleric Fethullah Gulen could have been whisked out of the country by Michael Flynn and his son sources of the Wall Street Journal say Did Flynn cut a $15 million deal with the Turks — during the transition?

According to the paper, Mr Flynn and his son, Michael Flyn Jr., were to be paid as much as $15 million for delivering Fethullah Gulen to the Turkish government, according to people familiar with the investigation.

As part of a recent investigation launched by the Special counsel Robert Mueller, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents have asked at least four individuals about a meeting in mid-December at the "21" Club in New York City, where Mr. Flynn and representatives of the Turkish government discussed removing Mr. Gulen, according to people with knowledge of the FBI's inquiries, WSJ said.

Flynn was allegedly offered upwards of $15 million to close the deal successfully.

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is examining a meeting Flynn had with senior Turkish officials weeks after Donald Trump won the presidential race past year, NBC News and the Wall Street Journal reported.

He is believed to be under investigation for not registering as a foreign agent, a charge leveled at former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort in an indictment from Mueller. Flynn has expressed interest in an immunity deal and Mueller, in his dealings with former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, has shown himself ready to negotiate.

It's still rather early in the morning, but I feel comfortable saying that the latest reporting on Michael Flynn, Donald Trump's former White House National Security Advisor, is going to be the craziest story of the day.

The allegations of a plot involving the dissident cleric could open up Flynn and his son to charges including 'conspiracy to kidnap'. And as early as September of previous year, he had discussions with Turkish officials to find ways to deliver on the Gulen plan, according to James Woolsey, the former Central Intelligence Agency director.

According to the two reports, the discussions included details of how Mr Gulen, a Muslim cleric who lives in Pennsylvania, could be flown secretly by private jet to the isolated Turkish prison island of Imrali.

The focus of Mueller's investigation is to examine whether a discussion at 21 Club in NY leading to a deal to transport the cleric to Turkey would have resulted in Flynn receiving millions of dollars in secret payments, and whether Flynn was, in fact, part of that discussion. There's no indication that money changed hands or that an agreement was made.

Flynn was a senior adviser on national security matters to the Trump campaign at the time, though he was also on a foreign government's payroll.

The Mueller investigation into the Flynns is part of an overall probe into the Trump campaign's involvement with Russian Federation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is leading an investigation looking into the Trump campaign's supposed ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

This comes five days after NBC News reported that Mueller's team has "gathered enough evidence to bring charges" against Flynn and his son. Discussions between Flynn and Turkish representatives reportedly took place there.
