Investigators for Special Counsel Robert Mueller are questioning witnesses about an alleged September 2016 meeting between Mike Flynn, who later briefly served as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, and Rep.
Dana Rohrabacher, a staunch advocate of policies that would help Russia.
The meeting allegedly took place in Washington the evening of Sept.
20, while Flynn was working as an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign.
It was arranged by his lobbying firm, the Flynn Intel Group.
Rohrabacher, a California Republican, has pushed for better relations with Russia, traveled to Moscow to meet with officials and advocated to overturn the Magnitsky Act, the 2012 bill that froze assets of Russian investigators and prosecutors.
It could not be confirmed whether Rohrabacher and Flynn discussed U.S. policy towards Russia in the alleged meeting..
