SJW: Are Michael Flynn And His Son Mueller's Next Indictment Targets?

SJW: Are Michael Flynn And His Son Mueller's Next Indictment Targets?

House Speaker Paul Ryan pledged that Congress will not interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation - a probe that has intensified in the last week as Trump campaign officials, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, have been indicted. Investigators will also look at whether the elder Flynn tried to help form a plan to extradite an opponent of Turkish President Recep Erdogan who lives in the U.S.

Mr Mueller is increasing pressure on Mr Flynn following his indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, NBC said.

Flynn served 24 days as Trump's national security adviser but resigned after it was discovered he had misrepresented his contacts with a Russian diplomat to Vice-President Mike Pence.

On Oct. 27, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed the Trump administration viewed the Russian probe as "getting closer to conclusion" in an interview on Fox News' America's Newsroom. As of Sunday afternoon, however, it was unclear exactly what charges the younger Flynn might face or what investigators were focusing on.

Mr Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, were charged with 12 offences, including money laundering and conspiracy against the US.

Texans Owner Bob McNair Issues ANOTHER Apology For "Inmates" Comment (TWEET)
Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and defensive end Cliff Avril vented their frustrations over McNair's comments on Twitter. A day after issuing a public apology , Houston Texans owner and University of SC alum Bob McNair met with his players.

If Mueller does charge Flynn it would be a milestone because it would mark the first time that a current or former Trump administration official would be formally charged with committing a crime.

Mueller has the power to go after individuals who try to trip up his investigation, as well, and can prosecute federal crimes including perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence and intimidation of a witness.

Lawyers for Mr Flynn and his son, who worked with his father, declined to comment to NBC News.

And having Flynn's son over a barrel could get him there.
