Appeals court rejects effort to dismiss case against Michael Flynn


Quote:
Aug. 31 (UPI) -- The full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that a district court hearing on the Justice Department's effort to dismiss a criminal case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn can proceed.

Attorney General William Barr had moved to drop charges against Flynn in May, which were connected to false statement charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Flynn had initially pleaded guilty in 2017 to a false-statement charge, but later hired a new defense team and sought to withdraw the plea deal. President Donald Trump weighed in publicly in support of Flynn before Barr stepped in to drop the case, citing new evidence.

District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan balked initially at dropping the case, ordering a hearing on the matter. Flynn's legal team asked the appeals court to force Sullivan to drop the case without the hearing. A three-judge panel from the court agreed with the Justice Department 2-1 before the full court said they wanted to hear the case. The full court ruled 8-2 in Sullivan's favor.

Judge Thomas Griffith said it its opinion that it was premature for the appeals court to intervene before Sullivan held his hearing and made a decision.

"Today we reach the unexceptional yet important conclusion that a court of appeals should stay its hand and allow the district court to finish its work rather than hear a challenge to a decision, not yet made," Griffith said. "That is a policy the federal courts have followed since the beginning of the Republic."

Judges Karen Henderson and Neomi Rao, who ruled in favor of the Justice Department as part of the earlier three-judge panel, filed separate dissents.

DOJ faces new questions about accuracy of Flynn filings


Quote:
The Justice Department is already facing sharp questions from a judge about altering sensitive documents in the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Now, two lawyers connected to the case say DOJ has made new mischaracterizations in its attempt to clean up the mess.

Quote:
Rachel Maddow shares new reporting from the Washington Post that the Pentagon now admits, after days of denials, that Lt. Gen. Charles A. Flynn, the brother of disgraced former Trump NSA Michael Flynn, was involved in a key meeting on the military response as Trump supporters rioted in the U.S. Capitol.

Federal Appeals Court Refuses to Re-Examine Conviction of Michael Flynn’s Former Business Associate


Quote:



A complete panel of federal appeals court judges has declined to hear the case of a Trump transition team member convicted of recruiting Michael Flynn to take part in a Turkish government influence operation.

a man wearing a suit and tie© Provided by Law & Crime
In July 2019, a jury convicted Bijan Rafiekian, also known as Bijan Kian for short, 69, of San Juan Capistrano, Calif., of acting as an undisclosed agent of a foreign government and of conspiring with Kamil Ekim Alptekin, 43, of Istanbul, to covertly operate in the United States. Federal District Judge Anthony John Trenga of the Eastern District of Virginia threw out the conviction and, in the event of an appeal, preemptively granted Rafiekian a new trial.


A standard panel of three judges on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on March 18th the district judge was wrong to throw out the verdict and wrong to conjure up the thought of a new trial. Circuit Judges Paul V. Niemeyer (a George H. W. Bush nominee), Barbara Milano Keenan (a Barack Obama nominee), and James A. Wynn, Jr. (also a Barack Obama nominee) said that the jury “heard sufficient evidence” to convict, even if some of the logic of the case was convoluted

“Under our deferential standard of review, we must uphold the jury’s verdict if any trier of fact could have found that the evidence either direct, circumstantial or a combination of both — along with any reasonable inference[s]” established the essential elements of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt,” the three-judge panel ruled. “Based on the evidence presented, a rational juror could conclude that Project Truth was synonymous with Project Confidence; that the Turkish government was, in fact, behind the project; that, through Alptekin, Turkey communicated both general and specific instructions; and that Rafiekian hewed to those directions over the life of the engagement—all without notifying the Attorney General. That is enough to make out a § 951 violation.”

The three-judge panel also ruled that the district judge “failed to adequately take into account judicially recognized factors constraining its authority and rested its decision on erroneous legal premises” (some internal punctuation omitted). In other words, the district judge was way out of line.

In a succinct one-page order, the Fourth Circuit on Tuesday refused to re-hear the case en banc — with every judge on the circuit sitting.

“The petition for rehearing en banc was circulated to the full court,” the order reads. “No judge requested a poll under Fed. R. App. P. 35. The court denies the petition for rehearing en banc.”

That leaves Rafiekian to plead for help from the U.S. Supreme Court. It is both statistically and legally unlikely the high court will take the case.

Here’s how the Department of Justice summed up the underlying facts:

Rafiekian . . . along with . . . Alptekin . . . a Turkish national with close ties to the highest levels of the Government of Turkey, were involved in a conspiracy to act covertly within the U.S. on instructions from the Turkish government. The plot included using the services of the Flynn Intel Group (FIG), a company founded by Rafiekian and retired General Michael T. Flynn, to publicly and privately influence U.S. politicians and public opinion against a Turkish national, Fethullah Gülen , who is an imam, writer and political figure living in the U.S. Since 2015, the Government of Turkey has filed multiple extradition requests for Gülen in an effort to convince the U.S. government to extradite Gulen to Turkey.

The U.S. government has declined to extradite Gülen, who reportedly remains in the U.S. in a town north of Allenton, Pa. Per the DOJ:

According to court documents, the purpose of the conspiracy was to use FIG to delegitimize Gulen in the eyes of the American public and U.S. politicians, with the goal of obtaining his extradition, which was meeting resistance at the U.S. Department of Justice. At the same time, the conspirators sought to conceal that the Government of Turkey was directing the work. However, not only was Rafiekian told by Alptekin that Turkish cabinet-level officials had approved the budget for the project, but Alptekin also told Rafiekian and Flynn during the project that he was providing the Turkish officials updates on the work. Rafiekian understood that Alptekin was relaying the Turkish officials’ directions on the work to Rafiekian, Flynn, and others at FIG. During a September 2016 meeting in New York City organized by Alptekin, Rafiekian personally met with Turkish officials and heard them express their desire for Gulen’s extradition, an objective he then pursued using FIG’s personnel and connections.

As Law&Crime previously noted, the alleged smear campaign was called “Project Truth.” Flynn wrote an anti-Gülen piece for The Hill on Election Day in 2016 describing Gülen as a “radical cleric.” Prosecutors said the tome was effectively ghostwritten by handlers with ties to Turkey. Flynn admitted he lied about the dealings when pleading guilty to his own charges under the Mueller probe; however, Donald Trump’s Department of Justice clawed back the case prior to sentencing and moved to dismiss the charges against Flynn. Before the judge ruled, Trump pardoned Flynn.

Rafiekian, a former Flynn business associate who after the 2016 election was appointed to Trump’s transition team, reportedly advised Trump on who he should select as “director of national intelligence,” the head of “the CIA,” and “other top officials,” The Associated Press reported in 2017. More specifically, he “helped scrutinize then-Rep. Mike Pompeo before he was named Trump’s CIA director,” the AP said.

Michael Flynn Could Face Court Martial for Myanmar Coup Remark: Ex–Trump Official

Lt. Col. Yevgeny "Eugene" Vindman, an Army officer who was fired by the Trump White House, has said Trump's former national adviser Michael Flynn could face a court-martial over his remark that a Myanmar-like military coup "should happen" in the U.S.

"I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can't happen here?" an attendee asked Flynn during a Q&A session at a conference called the "For God & Country Patriot Roundup" in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday.

"No reason. I mean, it should happen here," Flynn responded, to cheers from the crowd.

With these seditious remarks Comrade Flynn may have crossed the line for recall to active duty and court-martial. As a JAG I’m qualified and also happy to prosecute this case. https://t.co/7gAM2TlG8D P.S. US mil would NEVER support this. We love America.

— Yevgeny (Eugene) Vindman (@YVindman) May 31, 2021
In a tweet on Monday, Vindman branded Flynn's remarks "seditious."

"With these seditious remarks Comrade Flynn may have crossed the line for recall to active duty and court-martial," he wrote on his personal Twitter account.

As a member of the U.S. Army's legal arm, Vindman said he was "qualified and also happy to prosecute this case."

He added: "P.S. US mil would NEVER support this. We love America." Vindman declined to comment further when contacted by Newsweek.

Steve Vladeck, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law, noted that Flynn is still subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice as a retired Army officer.

"The constitutionality of jurisdiction over retirees for post-retirement offenses is something we're currently challenging in the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces & the D.C. Circuit," he tweeted.

Yes, Flynn’s still subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice as a retired Army officer. The constitutionality of jurisdiction over retirees for post-retirement offenses is something we’re currently challenging in the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces & the D.C. Circuit. https://t.co/RQThYguIP1

— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) May 30, 2021
Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his dealings with Russia's ambassador before Trump took office, but was pardoned in the final months of Trump's presidency.


Vindman, on the other hand, was ousted from his role as the National Security Council's deputy legal advisor after he raised concerns about Trump's phone call with Ukraine's president in July 2019.

His twin brother Alexander Vindman, who also served on the NSC, was a key witness in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

Both brothers were fired from the NSC shortly after the Senate voted to acquit Trump following an impeachment trial and escorted out of the White House.

Alexander Vindman retired from the Army last year and said he had been subjected to a campaign of bullying and retaliation, but his brother stayed in the military.

Last summer, Yevgeny Vindman filed a federal complaint alleging he faced retaliation from Trump and White House officials for reporting the former president's actions. Politico reported in March that he is set to be promoted to full colonel, despite attempts by Trump loyalists to derail his career.
