Ex- Trump aide Flynn investigated over plot to kidnap Turkish dissident

Ex- Trump aide Flynn investigated over plot to kidnap Turkish dissident

Flynn was sacked from his post in the Trump administration after just 24 days on the job after he misled Vice President Mike Pence about contacts he had with Russian Federation during the transition period after the 2016 election.

The Alliance for Shared Values, a group representing Gülen supporters in the US, said: "The US justice system should be commended for not giving in to the Turkish government's campaign against Mr Gülen, no matter how nefarious a plan the Erdogan regime could concoct nor how much money it could offer people who might entertain such plans".

Investigators are eyeing an alleged 2016 meeting between President Trump's disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia-loving Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, according to a report Friday.

The kidnapping and return of Gulen would have netted Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr.

The Journal said the people who described the alleged proposal didn't attend the December meeting and didn't have direct knowledge of the details.

Investigators are also reportedly examining whether Flynn and other participants discussed a way to free Reza Zarrab, a Turkish-Iranian gold trader, who is jailed in the USA on federal charges that he helped Iran skirt US sanctions.

Extraditing Gulen is a major priority for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Earlier this year, Erdogan pressed Trump to send back the religious leader his government blames for an attempted coup last year and now lives in exile in Pennsylvania.

The December meeting about Gulen was also reported Friday by NBC, which cited people familiar with the probe.

Mueller's team is reportedly investigating whether kickbacks were involved in the Flynn-Inovo deal.

Participation in an effort to snatch Gulen in the US could expose Flynn to an assortment of federal charges.

Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser.

Flynn is a central figure in Mueller's investigation because of conversations he had with then-Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak past year and because he waited until March to retroactively register with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for the work he did for a Turkish businessman. It was revealed afterward that during the election and transition Flynn was working as a foreign agent on behalf of Turkey.

TripAdvisor replaced the comments with a generic explanation that the posts were "inappropriate" and "off-topic". TripAdvisor said it had run afoul of a former policy that allowed only "family-friendly" language.

The investigation into Flynn is part of Mueller's probe into whether Trump campaign advisers colluded in Russian interference into the 2016 USA election. Flynn penned an op-ed last November suggesting the US should expel Gulen.
