Former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn and his son Michael G. Flynn could be the next two people indicted in the Justice Department's probe into connections between Russian Federation and the campaign of President Donald Trump.

The NBC report said lawyers for Flynn and his son, Michael G Flynn, who worked with his father, declined to comment.

It seems some in Washington weren't surprised by reports signaling Trump's former national security adviser may be the next person to face charges in Mueller's prove. Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi wrote in a tweet published shortly after the news broke Sunday.

Over the course of Mueller's investigation, Ryan has said people should let Mueller do his job and defended Mueller from critics. However, the very next day it was announced that Mueller planned to file the first set of charges in his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, in a sign the probe would likely continue well into 2018.

Order on anthem at cinemas may change
LiveLaw reported that the Supreme Court hinted at recalling its order, and that it is up to the government to decide. News18 quoted the bench as saying on Monday: "Cinema halls are places of entertainment after all".

Mr Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, were charged with 12 offences, including money laundering and conspiracy against the US.

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.

In February, Flynn resigned from the administration after lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian government officials. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who was appointed by the Justice Department, also announced he secured a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser for Trump, for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about trying to arrange a meeting between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.

After Trump fired James Comey in May, the former FBI director testified that the president had suggested to him that the bureau drop a potential criminal investigation into Flynn.
