A court filing in the criminal case against Michael Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekian, suggests Flynn was questioned about several federal investigations that could be coming to a head in the coming weeks.

The Justice Department attorneys cited these ongoing probes as they asked a federal judge to delay an upcoming deadline to give Flynn’s lawyers the FBI reports, known as 302s, that detail their client’s interviews with investigators.

“The 302s of General Flynn’s interviews relating entirely to matters other than the pending charges against the defendant contain information concerning a number of sensitive matters, including ongoing investigations,” prosecutors wrote in a Tuesday filing to the Alexandria, Va., federal court.

They added that they were trying to “coordinate” a solution with DOJ “that could moot much of the defendant’s request. However, this coordination requires time because of the various interests involved.”

The filing mentions that Flynn was interviewed in probes led by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office. But it does not say whether the ongoing investigations involve Mueller.

Rafiekian and Turkish citizen Kamil Alptekin were indicted in December on charges of acting as unregistered foreign agents for Turkey in the U.S. and making false statements to the FBI. His case is not being handled by Mueller’s office.
