On Wednesday, President Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman said that the U.S. judge hearing the trial of an executive at Turkey’s state-owned Halkbank had taken part in events, organized by a cleric responsible for last years failed military coup. The executive has pleaded not guilty and Halkbank says it has abided by Turkish and international law. Erdogan’s government said the case was a “plot against Turkey” by the network of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who allegedly arranged last year's coup attempt.
