What they're investigating: Flynn's lobbying contracts and whether he lied to authorities about his foreign contacts, per NBC. The investigation is also reportedly looking into whether Flynn took money to arrange the removal of Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen, a critic of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, from the U.S.
