As a young man, Flynn used to go door to door luring Democrats out of their homes, onto buses and into polling stations when his mother, Helen Flynn, was running for secretary of state in his native Rhode Island. Described in a 1982 Christian Science Monitor report as an “antiabortionist mother of nine,” Helen Flynn instilled in her son an interest in civic duty but also, a more conservative brand of Democratic politics that the now-retired three-star general says no longer exists.

Special Counsel Mueller reportedly has enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn


Less than a week after Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, NBC News reported Sunday morning that the prosecutor overseeing Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election has enough evidence to charge former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Three sources familiar with the ongoing investigation said that Mueller is applying pressure on Flynn following other indictments.

Federal investigators are speaking to several witnesses in the upcoming days to better understand Flynn's lobbying work, and make a determination whether he laundered money or lied to federal agencies about his overseas connections.

Two officials confirmed to NBC News that Mueller's team is also looking into whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of Turkish President Recep Erdogan's rival from the U.S. to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars.

If Flynn, who lasted 24 days in the Trump administration as the head of the national security team, were charged, he would be the first current or former Trump operative formally accused of wrongdoing by Mueller's team.

Mueller's spokesperson had no comment.
