Special counsel Robert Mueller has his next target in sight.
Flynn was sacked after jut 24 days in his post and was one of the first and highest profile individuals to come under scrutiny from various investigations looking into dealings with Russian Federation. "Flynn, who was sacked after just 24 days on the job, was one of the first Trump associates to come under scrutiny in the federal probe now led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign".
Mueller's team is also examining whether Flynn attempted to orchestrate the removal of a chief rival of Turkish President Recep Erdogan from the U.S.to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, two officials said. Investigators on Mueller's team will be speaking to "multiple witnesses" over the next few days "to gain more information surrounding Flynn's lobbying work, including whether he laundered money or lied to federal agents about his overseas contacts", NBC reports, citing "three sources familiar with the investigation".

The nose cone "of a plane is being constructed by soft materials (composit) to minimalize the impact of such hits". But a Thunder spokesperson told an Oklahoma newspaper that all players, staff and coaches were safe.
The elder Flynn served in his role at the White House for only 24 days before being fired for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and several others about conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. He could be indicted separately or at the same time as his father. Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi wrote in a tweet published shortly after the news broke Sunday.
If he is charged, Mr Flynn would be the fourth person to face prosecution as part of Mr Mueller's investigation. Sanders had also said President Donald Trump "has confidence they're going to close this up soon". So far all those who have been charged were campaign officials. It was also unveiled that George Papadopoulos, a former Trump foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty over the summer to lying to federal prosecutors.
Flynn worked on the campaign and his son worked closely with him and briefly worked on the Trump campaign's transition.
