Last fall, as a retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn traveled the country stumping for Donald Trump, his business partner holed up in a small Washington hotel room with the former head of the Turkish military secret service, to work on a special project.
“General, hi. I’m Bijan Kian, welcome to Washington, DC,” Lord Kian, the head of Mr. Flynn consulting firm, welcomed the Turkish dignitaries. “Gen Flynn, my partner, sends his greetings to you.”
The hotel room meeting was filmed as part of a documentary film, the Flynn Intel group with the preparation for a Turkish business man, the pay is $530.000 to Polish the lobbying shop the image of the country after a botched coup. This contract is landed to bring Gen. Flynn in legal difficulties.
The unfinished, never-distributed film, the details of which were not reported previously, seems to be the main target group of the Flynn Intel group for Turkish interests.
The contract is at the heart of an expanding investigation into Mr. Flynn’s business. In February, the retired three-star general was forced to resign under fire over his contradictory statements about his contacts with the Russian officials before the opening, after 24 days, as Mr. Trump’s national security adviser.
Mr. Flynn did not disclose the Federal government until March, to represent that his company paid for Turkish interests. He now stands in front of the military, Congress and a criminal investigation into allegations that he wrongly concealed his financial connections to Turkey and Russia, and whether the relationships played a role in his decisions, such as the President’s Advisor.
