A former business partner of Michael Flynn has been charged with acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy for his efforts to get Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen extradited from the United States.…
According to the indictment, Bijan Kian conspired with a Turkish businessman to illegally influence government officials and public opinion against Gulen. Flynn was secretly working to advance the interests of his Turkish clients while publicly serving as a key surrogate to Trump
Flynn is soon to be sentenced for lying to FBI agents as part of Mueller's investigation. Prosecutors asked for no prison time for Flynn, citing his “substantial assistance.” But this case is being handled in the Eastern District of Virginia, not the special counsel.
Flynn had informed the incoming White House legal counsel during the transition that he might need to register as a foreign agent, and that apparently raised no alarms – even though he would soon become Trump’s national security adviser.
Reminder: The Turkish fellow who paid Flynn the $500K went on to organise the '36th annual conference on U.S. Turkey relations' at Trump's hotel in D.C. last year.
