In a report from the Wall Street Journal people familiar with the Mueller probe said he is beginning to look into Former National Security Adviser Gen. Mike Flynn’s work on a Turkish Documentary.
Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating former White House national security adviser Mike Flynnâ€™s work on an unfinished film financed by Turkish interests as part of its wider probe into whether Mr. Flynn improperly concealed financial ties to Turkey and to Russia, according to people familiar with the matter.
The focus on the film comes amid signs that Mr. Flynn may be working on a deal with Mr. Mueller. Mr. Flynnâ€™s lawyers this week stopped cooperating with White House attorneys defending the president, according to other people familiar with the matter, a possible sign that Mr. Flynn is sharing information with investigators.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is preparing to interview consultants hired by Mr. Flynn to work on a documentary film targeting an exiled Turkish cleric who Ankara accuses of trying to overthrow the countryâ€™s president, according to people familiar with the investigation. Details ofÂ the unfinished film projectÂ were first reported by The Wall Street Journal in May.
The film was at the heart of Mr. Flynnâ€™s work for Turkish interests while he served as top adviser on then-candidate Donald Trumpâ€™s presidential campaign. While working to get Mr. Trump elected, Mr. Flynnâ€™s company signed a $530,000 contract with a Turkish businessman with close ties to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
This is just more evidence to showcase Robert Mueller is way overstepping his boundaries. He is still yet to provide us with any evidence of Russia-Trump collusion and is focusing in on things that have nothing to do with Russia’s impact on our election.
