Mueller investigation involves member of Congress for the first time: report

Source: The Hill

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is investigating a meeting between President Trump's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), who has expressed pro-Russia views on a number of policies, according to NBC News.

Mueller's team is reportedly looking at emails sent from Flynn's lobbying group to Rohrabacher thanking the congressman for his role in the meeting.

NBC reports the meeting between Flynn and the congressman took place in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 20, 2016, while Flynn was working as an adviser to the Trump campaign. The meeting was reportedly organized by Flynn's lobbying group the Flynn Intel Group, and was also attended by Flynn's son Michael G. Flynn, as well as his business partners Bijan Kian and Brian McCauley. 

Rohrabacher has shown sympathetic views toward Moscow in the past. It was revealed in October that the congressman even met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya two months after she met with Donald Trump Jr. in June of 2016.

3. And please remember when Rep. McCarthy said Putin pays Trump and Rohrabacher and then how ...

.... Paul Ryan told the republicans to keep this talk "in the family."


https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/house-majority-leader-to-colleagues-in-2016-i-think-putin-pays-trump/2017/05/17/515f6f8a-3aff-11e7-8854-21f359183e8c_story.html?utm_term=.098da1736023


“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

snip

Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthy’s comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: “Swear to God.”

Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: “No leaks. . . . This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

The Russian mob has reached the top levels of the White House. I have little doubt it will be proven.

It. They are already on a mission to discredit him. He has strong shoulders, and hopefully body guards.

If I was the praying type, I would pray for Mueller. Hope Mueller gets to continue this but wouldn't surprise me if the Repugs decide now would be a good time to get him out of office and off their trail.

They are business partners of Flynn who attended the questionable meeting.
