Citing "people with knowledge of the FBI's inquiries", The Journalreported that Flynn and representatives of the Turkish government discussed the proposal - which one of those people told the newspaper allegedly involved flying Gulen on a private jet to a prison on the island of Imrali - during a meeting in mid-December at the 21 Club in NY.
That meeting was a follow-up to a secret September 19 meeting attended by former Central Intelligence Agency director James Woolsey, who said Flynn and others discussed "a covert step in the dead of night to whisk this guy away".
If Mueller and his team suspect Flynn tried to take official actions to benefit a foreign government, then anyone who tried to impede the investigation into Flynn's alleged misconduct might also face accusations of wrongdoing. The meeting caught the attention of Federal Bureau of Investigation, who have questioned at least four people about it.
CNN reported earlier this week that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators are examining Flynn's alleged participation in discussions about the idea of removing the cleric who has been living in exile in Pennsylvania.
