    MUELLER drills down on KIDNAP PLAN of Turkish cleric by GEN Flynn for $15MIL bounty

    It's just too hard to quantify how BIZARRE this is. Forget illegal. It's just fucking unbelievable!! You wouldn't make this up as the basis for a novel or a movie. A US General, the National Security Advisor 'in waiting' to the President elect, sits in a NYC restaurant to plan how to deliver a POLITICAL foe to the leader of Turkey for a $15 million bounty because the retired general is in a contract with Turkey. The guy who would be sitting in the WH to advise Trump 1 month later.

    -This is why Obama told Trump to stay away from Flynn. He's bad news. Don't hire him.
    -It's why SALLY ANN YATES was fired for going to the WH and warning Trump against Flynn.
    -This is why Nunes rushed to the WH to give TRUMP information about 'unmasking a name'
    -This is the "good man" Trump told Comey to lay off of!
    -This is why Comey was fired.

    What the hell does FLYNN HAVE ON TRUMP? And what did PENCE know??

    WSJ: Mueller probes Flynn role in plot to deliver cleric to Turkey



    By Miranda Green, CNN
    Updated 5:38 PM ET, Fri November 10, 2017


    Washington (CNN)Former White House national security adviser Mike Flynn and his son are alleged to have been offered as much as $15 million to forcibly remove from the US a Muslim cleric wanted by Turkey, The Wall Street Journal reports.

    The Journal reported the FBI questioned at least four people in regards to a mid-December meeting in New York at the "21" Club. Discussions between Flynn and Turkish representatives supposedly took place there, according to the Journal. 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. There's no indication that money changed hands or that an agreement was made.

    The discussions allegedly included how to transport Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim leader who Erdogan has accused of being behind a failed military coup to overthrow him, on a private jet to the Turkish prison island of Imrali.

    "Out of respect for the process of the various investigations regarding the 2016 campaign, we have intentionally avoided responding to every rumor or allegation raised in the media," Robert Kelner, Stephen Anthony and Brian Smith said in the statement. "But today's news cycle has brought allegations about General Flynn, ranging from kidnapping to bribery, that are so outrageous and prejudicial that we are making an exception to our usual rule: they are false."


    The Journal reported that an attorney for Flynn's son declined to comment on the story.


    CNN reported earlier this week that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators are examining Flynn's alleged participation in discussions about the idea of removing the cleric who has been living in exile in Pennsylvania. In the past, a spokesman for Flynn has denied that such discussions occurred.

    CNN also reported that Flynn has expressed concern about the potential legal exposure of his son, Michael Flynn Jr., who, like his father, is under scrutiny by Mueller, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

    Former CIA Director James Woolsey told CNN in March about an earlier meeting in September 2016 where Flynn also met with representatives of the Turkish government and discussed potential ways to send a foe of Turkey's president back to face charges in that country.

    Woolsey claims that those present discussed sending Gulen back to Turkey to face charges -- possibly outside the legal US extradition system. "What I saw and heard was sort of the end of the conversation -- it's not entirely clear what transpired because of that," Woolsey said on "CNN Tonight" with Don Lemon. "But it looks as if there was at least some strong suggestion by one or more of the Americans present at the meeting that we would be able, the United States would be able, through them, to be able to get hold of Gulen, the rival for Turkey's political situation."

    At the time, a spokesman for Flynn denied the allegation.

    "The claim made by Mr. Woolsey that General Flynn, or anyone else in attendance, discussed physical removal of Mr. Gulen from the United States during a meeting with Turkish officials in New York is false," Flynn spokesman Price Floyd said in a statement at the time. "No such discussion occurred. Nor did Mr. Woolsey ever inform General Flynn that he had any concerns whatsoever regarding the meeting either before he chose to attend or afterwards."

    If proven, the alleged plan to kidnap the cleric with the aid of foreign money directly violates US criminal code and could result in up to a 20-year sentence for the Flynns,

    Flynn worries about son in special counsel probe

    "Under this statute, both domestic kidnapping in violation of US law, and if it was a crime in Turkish law, both would be specific unlawful activities, so anyone who engages in the effort to bring money into the US for the purpose of kidnapping another violates the statute. That's a 20-year felony," Zeldin said.

    If the cleric were to die once in Turkish hands, that could mean a life sentence for the pair, Zeldin said.

    I really like the stripping of pension idea. It's one I'd advocate for cops found guilty of criminal offences.

    No immunity for Flynn? Will he be charged? Will Trump pardon the Flynns?

    It turns out that employing national security experts throughout your campaign and then in your White House (however briefly) where they had access to the nation's most closely guarded secrets when they were engaged all along in an international kidnapping plot...

    ...that's likely a bigger scandal, if proven in complete detail, than asking some Russians who everyone knows but doesn't "know" are Vladimir Putin's personal agents to bloodlessly break the law that's not even theirs and acquire dirt.

    All of this still reads like a rough draft of the screenplay of "Burn After Reading," though.
