Flynn could still face jail in second federal probe — there’s a criminal investigation into his Turkish lobbying
A new report from the New York Times revealed that one of the crimes that retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is involved in has to do with lobbying for Turkey. It’s also possible Flynn could still do prison time for crimes in Virginia.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has been handling the case but did refer it back to the prosecutors in Alexandria, Virginia, where Flynn could still face prosecution and serve time for the activity.
Prosecutors for Mueller made a refence in the sentencing document that was released Tuesday, saying Flynn helped in additional unspecified criminal investigations.
“The Turkey case appears to fit as one of those inquiries because Mr. Flynn has direct knowledge of aspects under scrutiny,” The Times wrote Wednesday. “Prosecutors are examining Mr. Flynn’s former business partners and clients who financed a campaign against Fethullah Gulen, a cleric living in Pennsylvania whom the Turkish government has accused of helping instigate a failed coup.”
