Russiagate: Flynn reportedly pressured to cooperate to save his moron kid's ass

Mueller has allegedly collected enough evidence as part of the probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election to file charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son, according to NBC News. 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.

Sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News that Mr Mueller was putting pressure on Mr Flynn following the indictment and arrest of Paul Manafort, Mr Trump's former campaign chairman, last month. If he is charged, the former National Security Adviser would be the first person who held an administration post to face prosecution.

Mr Mueller's team was reportedly intending to interview more witnesses over the next week as it investigates lobbying work by Mr Flynn.

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.

"End of the day, what we owe the American people is the truth and, most importantly, how we make sure that we don't have a foreign power and a foreign power like Russian Federation intervene again in our elections", said Senator Mark Warner. But cooperation from Flynn, who was national security adviser for only 24 days before he was sacked, could help his son avoid the worst penalties.

Flynn also was revealed to have failed to register with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for work he did during the campaign for Turkey - a felony offense.

Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner, declined to comment. They are former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and former campaign aides Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos.

If charged, Flynn would become the first member of Trump's administration to face prosecution in the growing, wide-ranging investigation into whether the president's campaign team colluded with Russian Federation to damage the reputation of Hillary Clinton.
