Aide from Trump's transition team charged today

Last edited Mon Dec 17, 2018, 02:45 PM - Edit history (1)

Bijan Kian (Rafiekian) was charged today with illegally lobbying for Turkey. There are a couple of threads active on this sory, but nothing I've seen points out that this guy was an aide to Trump's transition team.

Soon after Flynn Intel ceased operations after Mr. Trump's election, Flynn and Kian joined the president-elect's transition team. Kian described his role on his LinkedIn profile as "deputy lead" assigned to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Kian said he provided "policy input, strategic guidance and operational counsel to prepare" candidates for the director of national intelligence, the CIA and other top officials.
