Prosecutors investigating claims of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign are on the verge of making their next charge, it has been reported.
Mueller is leaning on Flynn to reveal more about the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, and may use his son as a means of leverage. The retired army lieutenant general was sacked in February after less than a month on the job after it was revealed he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of his dealings and communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.
According to NBC News, sources say investigators will be speaking to witnesses soon to get information about Flynn's lobbying work and whether or not he laundered money or lied to federal agents about overseas contacts.

This will remain the status quo until March 11, 2018, when clocks will be readjusted once more , this time by "springing forward". Apparently, New Zealander George Vernon Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in the year 1895.
According to the Justice Department his consulting firm was paid $530,000 past year for work that may have helped the Turkish government but he had not registered as a foreign lobbyist at the time. Investigators are also looking into allegations that Flynn tried to come up with a plan to whisk a rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the United States. It's also possible that Flynn Jr., who worked with his father during the Trump campaign and transition, could be targeted first as a way to gain leverage over Flynn Sr. Shortly after Trump's inauguration, the F.B.I. was asked to reexamine Turkey's request that Pennsylvania resident Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric whom Erdogan blames for orchestrating a coup against him, be removed back to Turkey.
If the elder Flynn is willing to cooperate with investigators in order to help his son, two of the sources said, it could also change his own fate, potentially limiting any legal consequences.
The report indicates that Mueller's investigation is moving at a quick, steady pace. In addition to Mr Manafort and Mr Gates, George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to the campaign, has pleaded guilty to lying to law enforcement officials and is reported to have been cooperating with the investigation.
