Transcript: Mueller Reportedly Investigates Flynn Over Abduction Plan

So on top of everything else, special counsel Robert Mueller might now be investigating an international conspiracy to kidnap a Turkish cleric.

A new report  in The Wall Street Journal  says Mueller is looking into a December 2016 meeting former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son Michael Flynn Jr. had with Turkish government officials.

During that meeting, the Flynns were allegedly offered $15 million to hand over Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen to the Turkish government.

One source told the Journal the possibility of forcing Gülen onto a private plane and flying him to a Turkish prison island reportedly came up.

Michael Flynn has seemed more than willing to help; on Election Day, he penned an editorial calling Gülen a radical terrorist.

He later disclosed he had been paid over $500,000 for work that benefited the Turkish government.

As of Friday evening, Michael Flynn hadn't commented on the Journal report.

But his spokesman denied similar allegations in the past.
