Two former businessmen by Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former security advisor, have been accused of conspiring to affect both US politicians and public opinion about a political rival for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2016.

Prosecutors charged Bijan Rafiekian, also known as Bijan Kian and Kamil Ekim Alptekin, to act as unregistered agents of the Turkish government in an empty centered around Turkish clergy Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania. The United States Ministry of Justice claims the two business associations “tried to discredit and delegate the Turkish citizen to politicians and the public’s eyes, and ultimately to secure the extradition of the Turkish citizen.”

Alptekin is also responsible for multiple bills to lie to federal investigators about their roles in the operation.

The guild has become guilty by the Turkish government to orchestrate a failed military coup against the government of Erdrogan.

According to the allegation, Flynn, Kian and Alptekin’s secret lobbying against the Gulen, was called at the beginning of the 90-day “Sanitation Campaign” and later referred to as “Project Confidence” began at the end of July 201

The prosecution describes how Kian and Alptekin planned a 90-day anti-Gulen campaign – explaining that the real source of financing for the operation was the Turkish government.

The whole time Kian and Alptekin were in contact with Turkish officials at high level, who received a “green light” from unnamed Turkish ministers on the procedure and conducted a meeting with the ministers in New York in September 2016, according to the accusation.

In November 2016, The Hill published a contract of Flynn comparing Gulen to Osama bin Laden and urges the US to “align our foreign policy to recognize Turkey as a priority.”

“The radicals of radical Islam derive their ideology from radical clerics like Gülen, who drives a bluff,” Flynn wrote. “We should not give him a place of refuge. In this crisis it is imperative that we remember who our true friends are.”

Although not mentioned in the allegation, ABC News has previously also reported that Flynn was also accused of raising the idea of ​​kidnapping Gulen to turn to the Turkish government. Flynns lawyer has denied any such discussion.

Kians lawyer Robert Trout declined to comment on the question.

During an interview with ABC News in May 2017, Alptekin had refused to work for the Turkish government.

“I have never represented the Turkish government,” he said. “All reports that meant or meant that I in any way represented the government is simply not true.”

Bijan Kian faces up to 15 years in prison and Kamil Ekim Alptekin faces up to 30 years in prison.

Although Flynn, identified as “Person A”, is described in court proceedings so heavily involved in lobbying, he is not a defendant in the new accusation.

The revelation of the revelation, revealed on Monday, comes to the doorstep of the retired three-star General Flynns judgmental hearing. Last December, Flynn was obliged to listen to the FBI and agreed to collaborate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his ongoing investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

According to a judicial statement filed by Mueller’s law earlier this month, Flynn has provided “significant help” to several unspecified investigations, one of which is believed to be the Turkish lobbying business involving Kian and Alptekin. The Special Prosecutor’s Prosecutor has asked the referee for no prison for Flynn, referring to his help.
