“Indictment Looming for Michael Flynn in Mueller’s Trump-Russia Investigation”
Since special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team indicted three members of President Trump’s election campaign team, the world’s media has been speculating on who will be indicted next. President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been a favorite for indictment in many people’s eyes, but Michael Flynn has also been rumored. As Trump’s former national security advisor, Flynn was forced to resign after it was revealed that he had met with Russian officials and misled Vice President Pence over the issue.
According to CNBC, we now it appears that the Mueller investigation is set to indict Michael Flynn. They report that a letter has been sent from the Senate Judiciary Committee to Kushner’s lawyers requesting copies of all communications “to, from, or copied” to and from Flynn since election day.
The Mueller investigation is believed to have subpoenaed around a dozen members of Trump’s campaign team for correspondence that contains around 20 keywords or phrases. The Senate Judiciary Committee has requested that Kushner’s attorney search for the terms “Peter Smith,” “WikiLeaks,” “Clinton,” and “hacking” in communications between Kushner and Flynn. Robert Ray, former independent counsel for the Whitewater investigation, told CNBC that he thinks it indicates “that Flynn is next” to be indicted.
