Mike Flynn under Special Counsel Investigation for Cleric Deal

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?

If Mueller and his team suspect Flynn tried to take official actions to benefit a foreign government, then anyone who tried to impede the investigation into Flynn's alleged misconduct might also face accusations of wrongdoing.

The meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20, while Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign.

US President Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is under investigation for alleged involvement in a plot to forcibly remove a Turkish dissident cleric living in the US and deliver him back to his country in return for millions of dollars.

Students at Sherwood Christian Academy held their annual Veterans Day program on Friday, November 10, at Sherwood Baptist Church. Several students with parents who either served or are serving in the military say they love being able to do this for them.

The Wall Street Journal said its sources weren't on hand at the December meeting, but were familiar with the Mueller investigation, though didn't know how deep the special counsel was probing the plot. "We should not provide him safe haven".

Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election and whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the race in his favor, has compiled enough evidence to bring charges against Flynn and his son, NBC News reported on Sunday. The intelligence community has pointed to Russian Federation as the secret provider of the email trove to WikiLeaks.

Flynn resigned almost three weeks after Sally Yates, the acting attorney general at the time, warned the White House that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail over his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign at the time.

In a statement late Friday, Flynn's lawyers, led by Robert Kelner of the Covington law firm, rejected the reports. Less is known about his lobbying ties to Russian Federation, though he was paid $45,000 plus expenses for attending a gala in Moscow in December 2015 and being interviewed by RT, the Kremlin-financed cable TV news channel. That same NBC News report added, "Mueller's team is also examining whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the U.S.to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, two officials said". The White House has distanced itself from the men charged by Mueller - Papadopoulos, former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates.

"Out of respect for various investigations regarding the 2016 campaign, we have intentionally avoided responding to every rumor or allegation raised in the media". 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.
