US Special Counsel Reportedly Probing Plot To Hand Over Turkish Cleric Gulen

The Wall St Journalreported that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have asked at least four individuals about a meeting in mid-December in which Flynn and a representative from the Turkish government discussed putting Gulen on a private jet and carting him off to the Turkish prison island of Imrali.
The alleged plan emerged during Mueller's wider investigation of possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any collusion by the Trump campaign.
Flynn was allegedly offered upwards of $15 million to close the deal successfully.
The people who described the alleged proposal said they didn't attend the December meeting and didn't have direct knowledge from Mr. Flynn or his associates about its purported details.
News is reporting that "the meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of September 20" past year and "was arranged by his lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group".
"Under the alleged proposal, Mr Flynn and his son Michael Flynn Jr were to be paid as much as US$15 million for delivering Fethullah Gulen to the Turkish government, according to people with knowledge of discussions Mr Flynn had with Turkish representatives", WSJ said, adding that it is not clear how far the proposal went and that there was no sign that any payments were made.
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.
The former national security adviser's company, Flynn Intel Group, is under scrutiny for failing to register work it did for interests linked to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and Flynn is in legal jeopardy for his statements to investigators about his contacts with representatives of the Turkish and Russian governments.
In September, the Wall Street Journal reported a meeting about the plan, in which former Central Intelligence Agency director James Woolsey participated.
Flynn was a senior adviser on national security matters to the Trump campaign at the time, though he was also on a foreign government's payroll.
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.
As a rule, they said, they do not comment on news reports involving their client.
Flynn resigned almost three weeks after Sally Yates, the acting attorney general at the time, warned the White House that Flynn could be vulnerable to Russian blackmail over his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.
Nor did the attorney representing the elder Flynn, Robert Kelner. All of this reportedly at the direction of the Turkish government.
