These indictments were returned in 2015 and 2016, respectively. They relate to Mahan Air.
The indicted person is “Peyman Amiri Larijani, 33, a citizen of Iran and former resident of Istanbul, Turkey”
Mahan Air is sanctioned because it helps the IRGC. Know who else helps the IRGC?

I'm re-upping my tweet of this from August 2018 because I'm still mystified as to why Ed Kutler's & Mike McSherry's FARA violations aren't being investigated by SDNY alongside Vin Weber's FARA violations (OR MAYBE THEY ARE WE JUST DON'T KNOW YET?)
This is one of the supplemental statement Amendments from Mercury Public Affairs with #TooLateFARA info for "European Center For A Modern Ukraine" efile.fara.gov/docs/6170-Amen…
you'll notice Ed Kutler's name on there. Also, Mike McSherry, who, SURPRISE! worked for the Trump campaign.
Boop! Here's Mike McSherry in some #GoodJournalism by @RosieGray (again, I don't love Buzzfeed but this is solid reporting here) So it's not like McSherry's ties to tRUmp campaign and to Manafort shady shady lobbying weren't known. From August 2016:

So in my dystopia thread five days ago, I made this up (that US Gov got rid of @fdarecalls). Then I found out today from #GoodJournalism by @kimberlykindy that the trump admin is turning regulation/oversight of hog plants over to...the hog plants. That is dangerous as hell.
Not only will this negatively impact American consumers...
It will also negatively impact American farmers. Why? Because “self-policing” of meat processing plants inevitably means unsafe meat. And THAT will impact exports. Because who wants to buy unsafe meat? No one.

Sovereign Society fed clients to Panama Papers law firm
#GoodJournalism by @mcclatchyDC's @KevinGHall from June 2016.
I'm gonna add some background info on Robert Bauman of the Sovereign Society, because it's important. mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-wo…
Bauman is an advocate for offshoring money to avoid taxes.
SO WE ARE CLEAR:
Tax avoidance is why our infrastructure is crumbling. Tax avoidance is a form of greed. Tax avoidance is unpatriotic. Tax avoidance is what's gonna get alllllllll the bad guys. #FATCAgonnagetcha
Bauman's wife Carol Dawson (their marriage was annulled in 1983), and he were deeply involved with Young Americans for Freedom, aka YAF, and the American Conservatives Union, aka ACU.

Last thing I'm going to say on this:
Consider that by pointing this out, we are holding MSM press to their own standards. Which is so critical in helping to shore up our free press, which is under a direct assault by a hostile foreign state & the White House.
Here's why... /1
2/ There are time/date stamps on what we put out. This is easily discovered via basic Twitter searches. To everyone. And we have considerable followings now. So, folks know - or can easily discover - where & when certain stories first broke. It looks REALLY BAD at this point...
3/ To NOT give credit - or at least acknowledge that there was prior information "out there" in the public domain. Good Lord.
No one who has been committing the time/energy to research, analyze, & then publicly share findings is doing it 4 fame (well, ok. maybe @ScottMStedman).
