No indictments filed against any current officeholders. But this is one that very likely could be coming!
In December, Mike Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
In the court documents filed with his plea, Federal prosecutors said that he had also lied in foreign agent registration filings about the work he had done for Turkey, but he was not specifically charged for those false statements. This is where Nunes comes in.
Flynn has been cooperating with the ongoing investigation all along.
Michael Flynn was paid $530,000 to Represent Turkey’s Interests during the Trump Campaign.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey said he attended a meeting in New York on Sept. 19, 2016 with Flynn and representatives of the Turkish government. In that meeting, the kidnapping of Pennsylvania resident Fethullah Gülen was addressed.
Discussions involved ideas about how to get Gulen (accused of orchestrating last summer’s failed military coup to Turkey) without going through the U.S. extradition legal process.
James Woolsey claims that Michael Flynn offered to put him on his consulting payroll during their meeting with Turkey. Woolsey said he declined that offer because of what he heard at the meeting.
He resigned as a senior adviser to then candidate Donald Trump on January 5, 2017.
Two weeks after Woolsey resigned, Flynn took another Trump transition team member, Devin Nunes, with him to another meeting with the Turkish government.
Michael Flynn offered to put Woolsey on his consulting payroll during their meeting with Turkey but Woolsey declined it. Was this same offer made to Devin Nunes? Flynn offered money to Woolsey so it just follows that he would have offered it to Nunes too. And if it was, did he accept it and did he declare it? Remember, Flynn has been cooperating with the ongoing investigation for nine months now.
So far, no indictments have been filed against any current officeholders but this is one that very likely could be coming!
