Special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe has enough evidence to bring charges against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his son, according to a new report.
Investigators on the Mueller team will spend the next few days speaking to witnesses about the retired Army general’s overseas work, if he laundered money and whether he misled authorities, NBC News reported.
Another focal point is whether Flynn worked to get a cleric taking refuge in the U.S. extradited back to Turkey, where he’s accused of promoting a coup against President Recep Erdogan.
News of the potential indictment against the Flynns comes a little less than a week after former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates on a dozen charges dating back before they joined the Presidential bid.
But Flynn would be the first person to have served in the Trump indictment to get hit with a federal indictment.
It’s unclear what charges Flynn or his son, also named Michael, could face.
