Exclusive: Special counsel Mueller to probe ex-Trump aide Flynn's Turkey ties

Source: Reuters

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible ties between the Trump election campaign and Russia, is expanding his probe to include a grand jury investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, three sources told Reuters.

The move means Mueller’s politically charged inquiry will now look into Flynn’s paid work as a lobbyist for a Turkish businessman in 2016, in addition to contacts between Russian officials and Flynn and other Trump associates during and after the Nov. 8 presidential election.

Federal prosecutors in Virginia are investigating a deal between Flynn and Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin as part of a grand jury criminal probe, according to a subpoena seen by Reuters.

Alptekin’s company, Netherlands-based Inovo BV, paid Flynn's consultancy $530,000 between September and November to produce a documentary and research on Fethullah Gulen, an exiled Turkish cleric living in the United States. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan blames Gulen for a failed coup last July.

1. This investigation is Mammoth!

Do we have the reliable resources to actually investigate all the legs and tentacles of this crime family? I myself am overwhelmed.....

What is most troubling is our republican controlled congress members are complacent...willingly ignoring the true outrage.

4. Global

oligarch/financial/billionaire cabal attempts to neuter governments and privatize
everything for themselves

Going to be a long process, and it's been 35 years in the making. Curbing
excesses may be the only viable result.
