Flynn business partner to go on trial

Less than two months after former special counsel Robert Mueller announced the end of his high-profile investigation of foreign influence on the Trump presidential campaign, his office’s work is facing one of its most notable courtroom tests as a former business partner of Gen. Michael Flynn fights foreign-agent-related charges stemming from Mueller’s probe.

Jury selection opened Monday morning in federal court in Alexandria, Va., for Bijan Rafiekian, an Iranian-American businessman facing two felony charges connected to a short-lived lobbying and public-relations campaign Flynn and Rafiekian undertook in 2016 that targeted a dissident Turkish cleric living in Pennsylvania, Fethullah Gulen.
