The Flynn Intel Group is a lobbying group established by Michael Flynn. Flynn registered the company from the home of his friend Stanley A. McChrystal, a "fellow general-turned-consultant."[1]

Kamil Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish businessman close to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey's leader, is a client of Flynn Intel Group.[2] Inovo, a company owned by Alptekin, paid the Flynn Intel Group $530,000 to investigate Fethullah Gülen, a U.S.-resident cleric who is wanted by the Turkish government.[3] The group's failure to register as a foreign agent after accepting this contract was among the activities examined by Robert Mueller's 2017 Special Counsel investigation.[4]

Subsidiaries of the Flynn Intel Group include FIG Cyber Inc and FIG Aviation. They are headed by Timothy Newberry and Mike Coomes.[5][3][6] Other employees included Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, who served as his father's chief of staff.[7]

The group's House Identification number is 433680001 and Senate Identification number is 401104161.[8]
