The probe into the alleged Gulen plot is part of Mueller's larger investigation into alleged improper contacts between Trump representatives and agents of the Russian government during and after the 2016 US presidential election.
The meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20, while Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump's presidential campaign.
United States investigators are probing whether former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn discussed expelling a Turkish dissident back to his country in exchange for millions of dollars, USA media reported. It was arranged by his lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group.
The alleged plan emerged during Mueller's wider investigation of possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any collusion by the Trump campaign.
The Washington Post reported in May that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, also a California Republican, was secretly recorded telling other party members, in what seemed to be a joke, "There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump".
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. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
Conor McGregor Slaps Security, Pushes MMA Ref
Oh, and in case you're curious about what Dana White thinks about fighters touching referees, here's what he said a year ago. BAMMA 32 is now underway at the 3 Arena and Conor McGregor was in attendance to support some of his SBG teammates .
"If Mueller has sufficient evidence that Flynn and his son were involved in this audacious plot to kidnap the cleric, the special counsel can use that to pressure the former Trump campaign associate to flip and tell the FBI everything he knows of relevance to the Russian Federation investigation".
The congressman's staff did not immediately return a request for comment Friday, a federal holiday.
Special prosecutor Robert Mueller is examining the meeting Flynn had with senior Turkish officials.
The meeting allegedly discussed a secret payout of up to US$15 million dollars (S$20.4 million) if, once in office, Mr Flynn would engineer the deportation to Turkey of Fethullah Gulen, a political rival to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as help free Iranian-Turkish businessman Reza Zarrab from prison.
Mr Flynn served 24 days as Mr Trump's national security adviser but was sacked after it was discovered he had misrepresented his contacts with a Russian diplomat to Vice President Michael Pence. But today's news cycle has brought allegations against General Flynn, ranging from kidnapping to bribery, that are so outrageous and prejudicial that we are making an exception to our usual rule: "they are false", they wrote in a statement. Manafort's lawyers may have a point in complaining, as they have, that the Foreign Agents Registration Act is rarely criminalized and that Mueller shouldn't weaponize it.
