Former national security adviser Michael Flynn denied an accusation that he planned to send a U.S. resident out of the country.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey claims he was present for a meeting between Flynn and Turkish representatives. They reportedly wanted to find a way to take Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen back to Turkey.
"It was suspicious, it was concerning, and I felt I needed to say something about it to someone," Woolsey said on CNN.
A spokesman for Flynn said he never discussed anything about removing Gülen extrajudicially.
Flynn recently admitted he was paid to work on behalf of Turkish government interests while he was a part of President Donald Trump's campaign. He disclosed that information only after he lost his job.
Flynn served as a national security adviser until he was fired for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about discussing sanctions with Russian officials.
