Russian mob figure met with Clinton, Gore

By Jerry Seper

The Washington Times
21Dec97

President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore met at a 1995 Miami fund- raiser with the Ukrainian partner of a Vienna-based firm tied to Russian organized crime, although his visa had been revoked by the State Department a month earlier.

House investigators said Vadim Rabinovich, a millionaire who
spent eight years in a Soviet prison for theft, later used a photo of himself with Mr. Clinton and Mr. Gore at the fund-raiser - prominently displayed in his Kiev office - to impress clients for a second company, whose activities also have been questioned by U.S. authorities.

State Department records show that Mr. Rabinovich attended the Sept. 19, 1995, fund-raiser at the Sheraton Bal Harbor Hotel even though his visa had been revoked Aug. 23, 1995, and his name placed on the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service "lookout" list, meaning he was ineligible for U.S. entry.

The records show that he was a partner from 1993 to 1995 with Grigori Loutchansky, head of Nordex, a commodities firm. He served as its representative to Ukraine until his departure for a Swiss firm known as Ostex, owned by Nordex. By the end of that year, Nordex had sold all its Ostex shares to Mr. Rabinovich.

Mr. Loutchansky, listed in a 1995 State Department "watch list" as a "suspected criminal," dined with the president at the White House in October 1993 and got a private, two-minute meeting with Mr. Clinton and Mr. Gore. He also was invited by the Democratic National Committee to a fund-raising dinner with Mr. Clinton at the Hay-Adams Hotel in July 1995 but did not attend.

Two former CIA directors, John Deutch and R. James Woolsey,
have identified Nordex as tied to Russian criminal activity. Mr. Woolsey said an invitation to Mr. Loutchansky to meet with the president "would show a severe lack of scrutiny and appalling bad judgment."

U.S. intelligence reports said Nordex was founded by the KGB and was suspected of involvement in nuclear materials reaching North Korea and Iran.

In July 1996, Time magazine linked Nordex to nuclear smuggling, drug trafficking and money laundering, saying it was established to "earn hard currency for the KGB."

Mr. Loutchansky told The Washington Times that U.S. officials had wrongly accused him and his firm of criminal activity. He said "charges should be brought against me or my name should be cleared." Mr. Rabinovich, jailed from 1982 to 1990 for theft from the state, was not available for comment, but he previously denied wrongdoing.

NOTE for Post 106

That is copied as an exact quote; but that may be the Ukranian Mafia and Not Russia.

I am not sure which....just throwing the disclaimer out there.

We also know that Clinton looked the other way in the Oil For Food scandal, he probably even helped out with it. This means that Clinton helped out Saddam too!

Suspected N-dealer attended Clinton
fund-raiser

By Christopher Ruddy
FOR THE TRIBUNE-REVIEW

[ photo; President Clinton (left) chats with
Grigori Loutchansky (right), head of
NORDEX, as New York businessman
Sam Domb (center) looks on. The
photograph appeared in the Latvian newspaper SM Today.]

WASHINGTON - Why did President Bill Clinton meet with Grigori
Loutchansky, a man whose company the current CIA director has
told
Congress is "an organization associated with Russian criminal
activity"?

That question has a number of national security experts who are
concerned about Loutchansky and NORDEX - an international
company which has been linked to the smuggling of nuclear
materials
- wondering. In October of 1993, Loutchansky was invited to the
U.S.
to attend a private fund-raising dinner for the Democratic
National
Committee where Loutchansky met with the President. The
meeting
was memorialized in the Latvian newspaper SM Today on Nov. 12,

1993.

In 1995, though Loutchansky was still a priority concern for U.S.
intelligence, he was again invited by the DNC to attend another
fund-raising dinner with the president. Disclosures about
Loutchansky
come on the heels of questions about dealings the president and
the
DNC have had with businessmen from Indonesia, South Korea and

Taiwan. Earlier this month, Republicans sharply criticized the
president

for meeting with a Miami drug dealer after he had made a
$20,000
donation to Democratic coffers.

NORDEX CONNECTIONS

[ photo; The SM Today article bears the headline in
Russian: "About a Billionaire Who LIkes
Soviet Youth." It details Loutchansky's
meeting with Clinton, his rise to
prominence, and his reminiscences of his
younger days as a member of the
Communist youth organization.]

TIME magazine, in an expose on Loutchansky only three months
ago,
reported that NORDEX, based in Vienna and Moscow, has been
"one
of the top intelligence targets in the West". Since NORDEX was
formed in 1989 to trade Russian commodities and natural
resources
with the West, allegations have surfaced that the firm has been
involved in money laundering, narcotics trafficking, arms deals,
and
other Russian Mafia criminal activities. Loutchansky, a former
professor and Latvian university official who once served a
two-year
term in prison for embezzlement, has not been charged with any
crimes in Russia or elsewhere since he founded NORDEX.

According to a secret German intelligence report, NORDEX was
created by the old Soviet regime "with the aim of bringing foreign

currency accumulated by the KGB and top Communist Party
officials
into the West," as well as a means to continue earning hard
currency
for Russian intelligence organizations. Domestic intelligence
sources
believe numerous such companies were created for that purpose,
but
NORDEX, with its $3 billion in annual business, appears to be the
largest such concern operating in the West.

NORDEX also may be the most dangerous. In the spring of 1995,
Ukrainian officials in Kiev inspected a NORDEX-owned cargo plane

that had emanated in North Korea and was destined for Iraq. The
aircraft was carrying SCUD missile warheads.

Suspicions, too, have been raised about nuclear smuggling to
rogue
states like Iran, Iraq and North Korea. According to TIME, in the
past
three years the National Security Agency has "found indications"
that
NORDEX has been "engaged" on the black market with nuclear
materials. Christopher Story, editor of the London-based Soviet
Analyst - the one-time British Foreign office newsletter on
Russian
matters - told the Tribune-Review that sources in British
intelligence
believe NORDEX is "a rapidly proliferating amoeba or cancer,
constantly replicating and mutating into a network of business
fronts
engaged in enterprises ultimately controlled by Russian
intelligence."
NORDEX controls more than 100 Russian firms and has more than

three dozen businesses in the West.

SECOND INVITATION

In an unpublished, extensive interview with TIME magazine,
excerpts
of which the Tribune-Review has obtained, Loutchansky explained

how he ended up meeting with Clinton: "I was invited by a friend
of
mine - Sam Domb - he was a trustee (sic) of the Democratic
National
Committee - to take part in a dinner which was given by Mr.
Clinton
and Mr. Gore and 20 Senators ... in October 1993. It was in
Washington in some museum. ... I was invited as an outstanding
Jewish businessman."

Loutchansky went on to say he spoke privately with the president
for
about two minutes, discussing the "problems of nuclear missiles in
the
Ukraine." Loutchansky also told the Jerusalem Report he "agreed
to a
request from the president to deliver a private message to the
leader
of the Ukraine." New York businessman Sam Domb told the
Tribune-Review he has no idea who Loutchansky was, and had
never
met him before the dinner. Domb, apparently agitated by the call,
had
no explanation as to why he was photographed with Loutchansky
and
Clinton, or why he was previously quoted extensively in a Russian

emigre newspaper praising Loutchansky.

According to Federal Election Commission records, in the months
immediately following the October, 1993, Washington dinner,
Domb
donated $90,000 to the DNC. In the past three years he has
forked
over $155,000 to the committee. Loutchansky has stated he
never
donated any money to the Democratic Party or the Clinton-Gore
campaign. Federal law prohibits donations by foreign individuals
or
companies to political candidates or parties. Sometimes foreigners
try
to skirt the law by having American citizens make donations on
their
behalf. There is no evidence that has occurred here. But
Loutchansky
has a track record in Russia and elsewhere of showering officials
with
money and gifts for favors and access. For instance TIME located a

dummy Swiss company owned by NORDEX called Dorotel AG
which,
according to a NORDEX official, was nothing more than a bank
account
"used to make discreet payments for friends of NORDEX. ..."

Calls to the Democratic National Committee for comment as to
why
Loutchansky was invited to a fund-raising dinner for the
president, and
why Loutchansky, according to a source familiar with the case,
received a letter from the president thanking him for his support,
went
unreturned. Also unexplained is the invitation Loutchansky
received
just last year from the Democratic National Committee for a VIP
dinner
with Clinton. "Dear Mr. Loutchansky," wrote DNC finance director
Richard Sullivan, "I cordially invite you to have dinner with
President
Clinton on Tuesday, July 11, 1995, at the Hay Adams Hotel in
Washington, D.C."

Loutchansky told the Jerusalem Report he did not go to that event

because he feared U.S. officials would not allow him to enter the
country. Already Loutchansky has been barred from Britain and
Canada. Soviet Analyst editor Story suggested Loutchansky's
meeting
and invitations to see Clinton were "nothing short of scandal."
"It's
preposterous to believe Loutchansky came once to meet the
president, and was invited again without giving some benefit, or
receiving some in kind," Story said.

>>>This means that Clinton helped out Saddam too!

More than that. He 'lost' the money that was set aside to take out Saddam.

NIX TO BLIX: ...The second has been the failure to implement Congress's Iraq Liberation Act - which was supposed to fund the overthrow of the dictator by native opposition groups. President Bill Clinton signed the 1998 act which was supposed to invest $97 million in this project. Apparently only $20,000 has been disbursed to the opposition groups - enough to buy some basic office supplies. The London office of the Iraqi National Congress, the main democratic opposition group, shut down at the end of last year...

BUMP for the book "The Venona Secrets".I bought it in 2000, it's almost 600 pages long and a few pages a week reminds you how entrenched the communists truly were. Bring a highlighter to this book as I do, it'll knock you backwards when you go back and check things.

Republicans, as they are presently, wouldn't’t consider using any of the eye-opening info against the Clinton’s because our media would rip them as extreme reporters, another reason why the Clinton’s love their relationship with the media, because the mainstream only puts out what the left machine says to. Proven. Fact. Indisputable. It is amazing to watch how Bill and Hillary turn everything against “the Right”. They are good Communists indeed.
