In 1995, he was wrongfully convicted of seditious conspiracy, solicitation of murder, solicitation of an attack on American military installations, conspiracy to commit murder, and conspiracy to bomb in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

Defending Rahman got Lynne spuriously charged with:
- "conspiring to defraud the United States;
- conspiring to provide and conceal material support to terrorist activity;
- providing and concealing material support to terrorist activity; and
- two counts of making false statements."
Prosecutors claimed she violated US Bureau of Prisons Special Administrative Measures (SAMs). A gag order on Rahman was included.
Doing so prohibits discussing topics the Justice Department (DOJ) rules outside "legal representation." It also inhibits legal defenses.
Ramsey Clark issued press releases like Lynne. She alone was targeted. At issue was silencing a powerful legal advocate. Tactics included disbarring and imprisoning her unjustly.
