Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel, which is investigating possible collusion between the 2016 Trump Campaign and the Russian government, seems to grow closer and closer to further charges and indictments for American officials every day.
Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Donald Trump Jr, and Jared Kushner are a few of the Trump affiliates who have been investigated by Mueller’s Special Counsel.
Now, Trump’s ex- national security advisor, Michael Flynn is being investigated. In early November, Michael Flynn was being investigated for an email exchange that took place between Flynn’s lobbying company The Flynn Intel Group, and Dana Rohrabacher, who is known for his pro-Russian rhetoric.
Now, the grand jury convened by Robert Mueller is set to question Michael Flynn’s associates. Specifically, Mueller will be investigating Bijan Kian, who used to be an employee at The Flynn Intel Group.
This isn’t the first time that associates of The Flynn Intel Group have been in hot water. Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were both indicted for tax fraud and money laundering associated with their work in lobbying.
Kian is said to have been involved in lobbying work that would have significantly benefited the Turkish government, and was also present at the meeting that took place between The Flynn Intel Group and pro Russian Dana Rohrabacher.
According to a report, the Muller investigation already has enough dirt on Michael Flynn to indict him.
Even the Trump Administration itself, as scandalous as it is, knows that Michael Flynn is rather shady. He was fired after misleading Mike Pence regarding his communications with a Russian.
More and more Trump associates are showing links to the Russians, and Robert Mueller is right on their tails. It’s possible that the grand jury may be able to expose even more critical information regarding Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
