Judge Lets Mueller’s Lobbying Case Continue Despite ‘Very Circumstantial’ Evidence

.

ALEXANDRIA—One of the last cases brought by former special counsel Robert Mueller seemed to be on the brink of getting thrown out by a federal judge on July 18. Ultimately, District Judge Anthony Trenga allowed the case to continue, albeit with reservations, saying the main charge, a conspiracy, rested on “very circumstantial” and “speculative” evidence.

The case alleges that Bijan Rafiekian, former partner in Gen. Michael Flynn’s lobbying firm, and Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish businessman, conspired to lobby in the United States on behalf of Turkey without disclosing it to the U.S. government. They were also accused of lying on foreign lobbying registration forms. Only Rafiekian is standing trial as Alptekin doesn’t live in the United States.

The defense argued that the case was too weak, only showing that Rafiekian acted in concert with Flynn and Alptekin, but not that the intent of the concerted effort was to secretly lobby for Turkey. The jury would have to speculate to reach a verdict, one of Rafiekian’s lawyers said, invoking Rule 29, which directs federal judges to toss a case where the evidence presented by the government “is insufficient to sustain a conviction.”

The prosecution disagreed, saying Rafiekian’s, Alptekin’s, and Flynn’s “matching lies are extremely persuasive circumstantial evidence of the conspiracy.”

The lobbying in question involved an op-ed published under Flynn’s name in The Hill on Nov. 8, 2016, about Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania who runs a group that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed for an attempted 2016 coup.

Flynn’s now-defunct lobbying firm, Flynn Intel Group (FIG), was paid over $500,000 by Alptekin to run a lobbying campaign against Gulen. When FIG’s lawyers were preparing the lobbying forms, Rafiekian, Alptekin, and Flynn all told them that the op-ed was unrelated to the lobbying job.

The prosecution disagreed, pointing out, among other things, that Rafiekian had sent a draft of the op-ed to Alptekin before publication with the message: “A promise made is a promise kept.”

Alptekin, former chair of the Turkey-U.S. Business Council, is known to have ties to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and consulted the lobbying job with Turking officials. The prosecutors, however, failed to establish that Turkey actually paid for the job.

The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) requires registration in cases where lobbying “principally benefits” a foreign government or political party even if the party or government didn’t pay for the job.

Trenga, in the end, reserved his judgment on Rule 29, which means that even if the jury returns a guilty verdict, the judge can still go back and toss the case.

Flynn’s Gambit

Flynn, former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, wasn’t charged in the case as part of his November 2017 plea deal, where he admitted to one count of lying to the FBI on unrelated matters and agreed to cooperate with the government. He’s expected to receive a low sentence, including no prison time, though he’s repeatedly asked for the sentencing to be delayed since he was still expected to testify on the Rafiekian case.

Flynn then unexpectedly stirred the pot in June when he fired his lawyers—the same lawyers who did the lobbying paperwork for his firm. His new team includes Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor and a critic of Mueller.

Later that month, the Mueller team asked Flynn to testify that he signed the lobbying forms knowing that there were intentionally-made false statements in them. He refused, saying he only acknowledged the falsities with hindsight, but wasn’t aware of them at the time.

“You are asking my client to lie,” Powell told Brandon Van Grack, one of Mueller’s main prosecutors, according to The Federalist’s Margot Cleveland.

In a “very heated” voice, Van Grack replied, “Be careful what you say … other people are listening in on this call.”

“Put the world on,” Powell replied. “Just put the world on.”

Shortly after, the Mueller team called off Flynn’s testimony and instead tried to label him a “co-conspirator” in the Rafiekian case. Trenga pushed back, though, saying the government has yet to prove there was a conspiracy, de-facto putting the co-conspirator matter on ice.

The prosecutors also had an FBI agent call and question Flynn’s son, who also worked for FIG. “The Agent persisted in trying to speak with him even after he said to call his attorney,” Flynn’s lawyers said in an earlier court filing.

It’s been speculated that the Mueller team offered an under-the-table deal to Flynn as early as 2017 so as to not involve his son in the case in return for Flynn’s cooperation.

On July 11, the government designated Flynn Jr. as a witness in the case, though he wasn’t ultimately called to the stand.

Powell called the Mueller team’s actions a “retaliation” for Flynn’s refusal to say what they wanted him to.

Opinion | The Spy Business Is Booming and We Should Be Worried
 

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

What is going on? Russian spies are assassinating people in other countries, directing internet companies to troll our social media and trying to undermine our political process almost in plain sight.

At the same time, agents acting at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party are stealing our proprietary information and technology. North Korean spies have become New Age bank robbers, while Iranian spies have attempted to assassinate dissidents in Denmark and a Saudi diplomat in the United States. And the United Arab Emirates has hired former government hackers to spy on dissidents and civil rights activists.

The spy business is clearly booming.

But it is not just government spy agencies. We are also witnessing the democratization of spy tools and techniques that used to be the sole purview of a highly select group of intelligence services. Less sophisticated services in other countries are now getting into the act.

As The Times reported in April, surveillance technology built for China’s political system is now being used — and in some cases abused — by as many as 18 other countries, including Zimbabwe, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Kenya, the United Arab Emirates and Germany. That is just one example of the globalization of the espionage economy.

It is not just nations. Numerous nongovernmental groups and private individuals are also purchasing spy tools and techniques for illicit purposes. Cybercriminals are a case in point. True hacking expertise was once primarily the domain of computer gurus and sophisticated intelligence services, but today such know-how is easily obtained on the black market.

Similarly, even less sophisticated drug cartels, terrorists and other criminal networks can deploy high-quality cameras and voice-recording devices for nefarious purposes. Other intelligence tools are used to steal information and technology belonging to our companies and research institutions.

The easy availability of spying hardware and know-how, combined with the weakening of norms and laws in international relations, has made the world less predictable and more dangerous. Yet what has happened in recent decades is nothing compared to what is coming.

Big data, artificial intelligenceA broad term used to describe a process in which machines learn from experience and potentially perform tasks previously done by humans. It is also a field of computer science dedicated to simulating intelligent behavior in computers. GlossaryClose X, quantum computing and 5G cellular networks will change our society in ways that we cannot begin to imagine, for better and for worse. Ever more powerful, easily accessible technology will supercharge competition between states — and empower intelligence services, criminals and terrorists.

There is a way for the United States to navigate these treacherous waters: better counterintelligence. Simply put, counterintelligence is about protecting something valuable — an asset, a system, a process, a way of life — from an adversary.

Effective counterintelligence begins with the American people and its public officials understanding that our country has a bull’s-eye on its back. Our position as the pre-eminent military and economic power in the world is under challenge as never before, as extremely capable and dedicated rivals seek to gain advantage over us. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and other countries pose grave threats, and advanced technology is leveling the playing field.

[If you’re online — and, well, you are — chances are someone is using your information. We’ll tell you what you can do about it. Sign up for our limited-run newsletter.]

This means that agencies across our government must become familiar with the objectives, capabilities and methodologies of our adversaries. In addition, clear national security policies should be rigorously carried out across the entire federal government to ensure that all agencies, especially those outside the intelligence community, understand the best ways to protect government employees and data. Successful counterintelligence also requires our corporations and universities to better protect their vital assets, such as cutting-edge scientific research, so that they do not fall into the wrong hands.

Individual citizens have a part to play in this fight as well. Our nation’s deep political divisions are a major vulnerability; foreign adversaries are trying to exploit them, as the 2016 election showed. To protect our democracy — and our place in the world — we need to restore a sense of national unity and purpose, treating more of our fellow citizens the way we treat our loved ones.

As we head into the 2020 presidential campaign, where our adversaries may once again try to poison our political debate, we would do well to remember something John F. Kennedy once said: “There are few if any issues where all the truth, all the right, and all the angels are on one side.”

Bill Priestap, a fellow at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, was head of the F.B.I.’s counterintelligence division from 2015 through 2018.

One of #Trump’s top campaign advisors, #GeorgeNader, was charged with sex trafficking of a child, just like Trump’s old friend #JeffreyEpstein. How is it that Don knows so many pedophiles? For once I have no joke, it’s just a real, serious, question.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Rush Limbaugh finally admits the ugly truth about the GOP

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  



The Republican Party likes to think of itself as “the party of fiscal responsibility.” The slogan popped up shortly after the Great Depression, as a reaction to the government spending involved in President Roosevelt’s New Deal and has been a conservative talking point ever since. In practice, however, the GOP has hardly been the fiscally responsible party – as Republicans have routinely driven up the deficit while in power and the Great Recession occurred under the watch of the previous Republican president.


Even though right-wing loudmouth Rush Limbaugh spent the entirety of the Obama administration blaming President Obama for soaring deficits and a struggling economy, this week he made a stunning admission – or one that was at least stunning by right-wing standards: The deficit doesn’t matter.




The reveal took place when a caller on Rush Limbaugh’s afternoon radio show suggested that Republicans nominate a younger, fiscal conservative for president rather than re-nominate Donald Trump in 2020, who the caller felt was being used by the GOP establishment. Of course, as with most guests on his show he disagrees with, Limbaugh immediately shot this idea down.




“Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore,” Limbaugh exclaimed, but then he opened his mouth a bit further than he may have wanted to: “All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it’s been around.” In other words, Limbaugh and his buddies at Fox News and Talk Radio didn’t really mean it when they called Obama out on driving up the national debt. We always knew this to be true, of course, and that there was some other, more obvious reason that they were united in their hatred for the former president, but they’ve never said it aloud.



It’s hard to ignore that Rush’s remarks came just a few days after Donald Trump’s infamous racist tweet. Considering Rush has his own history of making racist remarks, it’s fair to say he’s giving further encouragement to the bigots in his base. On the other hand, if one caller is openly asking for a “true conservative” to challenge Trump, it’s fair to say he’s hardly the only one – and the Republicans may be more divided than the media thinks.
