Mueller investigation involves member of Congress for the first time

Fethullah Gulen lives in a compound in the small Poconocs town of Saylorsburg Pennsylvania

This meeting was held in December - after the US presidential election and during Donald Trump's transition period - as Flynn was preparing to oversee national-security policy at the White House.

Under the alleged proposal, Mr. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., were to be paid as much as $15 million for delivering Fethullah Gulen to the Turkish government, according to people with knowledge of discussions Mr. Flynn had with Turkish representatives.

Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is under investigation for involvement in a plot to kidnap a Turkish dissident cleric living in the United States and fly him to an island prison in Turkey in return for $15m, it was reported on Friday. Mr Gulen has always denied any role in the coup that was carried out by rogue senior members of the Turkish Armed Forces that styled themselves as the Peace at Home Council.

The invitation, obtained by the newspaper, said the breakfast would "be a small event for about 50-60 guests" and that the White House chief of staff at the time, Reince Priebus, "might join the meeting", Daily Sabah reported.

Three hurt in vehicle attack near Toulouse: French police
The college campus comprises of several postgraduate courses including journalism, computer science, real estate and business. French Police said a man driving a auto outside a high school rammed into three students near Toulouse in southern France.

Flynn is now undergoing military, congressional, and criminal investigations into allegations that he hid his financial ties to Turkey and Russian Federation, and whether these ties impacted his work at the White House.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey, an unpaid adviser to Flynn Intel Group who attended the meeting, has said that the idea of kidnapping Gulen and removing him to Turkey was discussed. The group also discussed how to set free a Turkish-Iranian gold trader, Reza Zarrab. Gulen is seen as a political enemy by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

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

Lawyers for Flynn and his son declined to comment to the Journal. Flynn has since resigned as Trump's National Security Adviser following allegations that he discussed easing sanctions on Russian Federation with Kremlin officials, prior to Trump's inauguration.

Flynn and his son are now under investigation in Mueller's probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling.

Flynn disclosed that meeting, but not the one in December, when he registered as a foreign agent of Turkey in March, just weeks after he was sacked from the White House. Flynn was named Trump's national security adviser in November.

Flynn is also under legal scrutiny by Mueller's team for undisclosed lobbying that he did during the presidential campaign on behalf of the Turkish government, according to sources familiar with the matter.

On November 8, Flynn published an op-ed piece in The Hill that called Gulen "a shady Islamic mullah" and a "radical Islamist".
