Judge Dismisses Conviction in Mueller-Related Case and That May Aid Mike Flynn

When Robert Mueller’s goons forced Mike Flynn into pleading guilty to some tenuous bullsh**, they used Flynn to target his business partner Bian Kian or Bian Rafiekian. Eventually, he was indicted for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, specifically that he was acting as an agent of Turkey despite zero proof in that regard. In fact, the court ruled that the prosecutors could argue neither a conspiracy existed nor that Turkey funded any of the work done by Flynn Intel Group. Because OrangeManBad as much as any evidence presented, Rafiekian was convicted on two counts: that he lied to federal agents and that he violated FARA.

Rafiekian’s lawyers had filed motions on three separate occasions asking for the judge to direct acquittal (filed at the end of the prosecution and the defense presentations) and that the judge overturn the guilty verdict (after the verdict was returned). Today the judge, in a rather blistering ruling, threw out the verdict. In fact, the order sounds a lot like what a non-lawyer would characterize as a malicious prosecution.

A lot of this ruling seems germane to the Flynn case as his FARA violation is pretty much the same as that of Rafiekian.

I doubt that this will be the last Mueller related case to blow up. The ongoing action against Concord Management has been a dumpster fire since Day One and was an object lesson about just how incompetent Mueller’s team was when facing someone with the resources to fight them.
