Thread: Something funny is going on with the Flynn case. For the past two days I have received alerts of amicus briefs being filed, yet when I go to the court website to read them, they are not there. Today, again, I got another notification.
And, again, nothing is on the court website. However, this time there is one document accessible on the Courtlistener website. And it’s a brief from Bijan Rafiekian’s partner, Kamil Ekim Alptekim.
courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco…
To understand this, you have to know about the case United States v. Rafiekian. This was a FARA case against Flynn’s partners in FIG (Flynn Intell Group) that was brought by the SCO and tried in the EDVA (Eastern District Virginia) federal court.
The government argued that FIG lied in its FARA application because it failed to reveal that it was working directly for the Turkish government. They won the case. Rafiekian was found guilty. But, in a very surprising move, the judge accepted the defense motion for acquittal.
IOW, he overturned the jury verdict of guilty. In his lengthy opinion, he stated that the jury verdict went against “the heavy weight of the evidence” and that the government had provided no evidence, direct or indirect, to prove their allegations.
If you followed THAT case, then you know that the government tried to get Flynn to lie on the witness stand to strengthen their case against Rafiekian, and when he refused to lie under oath, they changed their stance on HIS case and demanded time in jail.
In Alpketin’s brief, he brings up all of this background information, including the government’s use of the threat of indicting Flynn’s son to get him to plead guilty to lying to FBI agents.
Rafiekian advocates for dismissing Flynn’s case precisely because the proof of Flynn’s guilt is lacking and because the failure of the Rafiekian case revealed the convoluted plan behind the government’s prosecution of Flynn.
I doubt any of this will sway Judge Sullivan one iota, and it’s not even certain that he will allow the brief to be added to the already voluminous docket. But it’s more proof of the nefarious nature of the government’s actions against Flynn.
It ought to bother any right-thinking American.
Addendum: Leslie McAdoo Gordon has requested leave to file an amicus brief as well. There are still a number of items missing from the online docket. The docket numbers jump from 268 to 287 with no intervening docket numbers visible.

Thread: @drawanstrike wrote a thread expressing disbelief that Hunter Biden would drop off a laptop and then forget it. threadreaderapp.com/thread/1318604…
I read it, but frankly I don’t buy his argument. His argument is that if HE did that, there’s no way he would forget about his laptop because everything on it is important to him. I get that. I would be the same way.
I panic when my laptop seems to screw up, because I think about all the work I’m going to have to do to recover everything and how I’m going to have to switch to my home computer in another room until the laptop is fixed. It’s a royal PITA and no one wants that.

Thread: Think about this for a second. We’re just now finding out that Hunter Biden has traded on his father’s influence since finishing college and his father’s donors have constantly found cushy jobs for him in return for beneficial legislation.

Now ask yourself this question. Why are we finding this out now? Is it believable that no one knew this until now? This has to be an open secret in DC. Yet NOT ONE politician has called Biden on it. Not ONE Democrat. Not ONE Republican. The FBI has NEVER investigated it.
The DoJ has NEVER investigated it. When you think about THAT, you begin to realize how endemic the problem in DC is. There’s a reason that call it the swamp. Everyone in DC HAD to know what Biden was up to. Yet they said nothing. They did nothing.

Thread: belated Saturday evening Bible thread
One verse has been on my mind a lot lately. Ps 46:10 ‘Our God says, "Calm down, and learn that I am God! All nations on earth will honor me.”’
Why would God tell me to calm down? Because he knows me.
He knows that I get agitated when I see evil appearing to win. These are trying times. From a sense-knowledge viewpoint, a lot of bad things are happening, and our lives hang in the balance. But God says, “Calm down, Paul. The world will honor me.”
This message is sprinkled throughout the Bible.

“And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

“I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
