Mueller Reportedly Has Enough Evidence to Arrest Michael Flynn-and His Son

NBC News: Mueller has enough to bring charges in Flynn investigation

Flynn's lawyer Robert Kelner declined to comment when asked if Flynn denies any collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election. He could be charged along with his father or separately, NBC reported.

The special counsel, who is leading the probe into possible collusion between Mr Trump's team and Russian Federation during last year's presidential election campaign, is said to have uncovered evidence that Mr Flynn acted improperly in relation to his work lobbying for foreign governments.

According to an exclusive report from NBC News, federal investigators have gathered enough evidence to bring charges against Flynn and his son.

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




Trump and his officials downplayed earlier arrests due to their work on the campaign rather than the administration, a charge for Flynn could would see that argument quashed.

NBC News did not receive comment from the special counsel's spokesperson.

The alleged evidence against Mr Flynn, a retired army general, suggests Mr Mueller's probe is getting closer to the inner circle around Mr Trump.

Mr Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, were charged with 12 offences, including money laundering and conspiracy against the US. As NBC News explained, he failed to register as a foreign lobbyist at the time, disclosing his work with a Dutch consulting firm only in March, well after he was sacked from the White House. However, the very next day it was announced that Mueller planned to file the first set of charges in his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, in a sign the probe would likely continue well into 2018. It was also revealed last week that former foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. It remained unclear Sunday if Mueller had plans to pursue charges against Flynn or his son.
