Mueller Investigating Flynn's Role in Alleged Plot to Deliver Cleric to Turkey

Did Flynn cut a $15 million deal with the Turks — during the transition?
As part of his investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 campaign, FBI Special Investigator Robert Mueller is questioning witnesses about a meeting that allegedly took place shortly before the election between Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and former Trump advisor Michael Flynn, NBC is reporting.
Flynn is accused of meeting with senior Turkish officials in December, a few weeks before Trump's inauguration, to discuss the return of Gulen, who is a rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan.
News is reporting that "the meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20" previous year and "was arranged by his lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group". Flynn has expressed interest in an immunity deal and Mueller, in his dealings with former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, has shown himself ready to negotiate.
The new allegation, that Flynn and his son engaged in a conspiracy to arrange the rendition of Fethullah Gülen to the Erdoğan government - which accuses the cleric of plotting an abortive coup in July 2016 - could if confirmed result in even more serious charges.
Mr Flynn became the White House national security adviser after Mr Trump took office on Jan 20.
According to the two reports, the discussions included details of how Gulen, a Muslim cleric who lives in Pennsylvania and has a large Turkish following, could be flown secretly by private jet to the isolated Turkish prison island of Imrali.
The report does not expand on what exactly was discussed during that meeting in Washington, D.C., but investigators apparently learned about it while reviewing emails Flynn Intel Group sent to Rohrabacher's staff thanking them for the conversation. There's no indication that money changed hands or that an agreement was made.
Multiple sources have told NBC News that Mueller has gathered enough evidence to lead to an indictment in the investigation into Flynn and his son. But by mid-December Trump had named Flynn national security adviser and he was playing a central role in the transition. "Evidence that Flynn was prepared to act in such an unlawful way could help prove a case against him in other activities as well involving his ties to Russian Federation during the campaign".
Both the Wall Street Journal and NBC News report this morning that special counsel Robert Mueller has focused on former Gen. Michael Flynn and his son for a reported deal to allow Turkey to get their hands on exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen.
