Robert Mueller Warned, "Stay out of President Trump's Real Estate Business, or…"

In an exclusive, NBC News reported Sunday morning that Mueller has the evidence needed to charge President Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Mueller's team is also examining whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the U.S.to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, two officials said.

Mueller is now putting more pressure on Flynn following his indictment of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, three sources familiar with the probe told the news outlet.

Then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn sits before President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hold a joint press conference at the White House on February 10, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Sources told NBC that the older Mr Flynn could be asked to cooperate with the FBI's investigations into other members of Mr Trump's team, in return for greater leniency for him and his son.

NBC reported that federal investigators will speak to several witnesses over the next few days looking at the elder Flynn's lobbying efforts, whether he laundered money and whether he lied to investigators.

If he is charged, Mr Flynn would be the fourth person to face prosecution as part of Mr Mueller's investigation. The inquiries are said to relate to his lobbying work and will investigate whether he laundered money or lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his work.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime business associate Rick Gates were indicted early last week on 12 counts that include, conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. It was also revealed last week that former foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I.
