Russian mob figure met with Clinton, Gore
By Jerry Seper
The Washington Times
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fund- raiser with the Ukrainian partner of a Vienna-based firm tied to Russian organized crime, although his visa had been revoked by the State Department a month earlier.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 Rabinovich attended the Sept. 19, 1995, fund-raiser at the Sheraton Bal Harbor Hotel even though his visa had been revoked Aug. 23, 1995, and his name placed on the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service "lookout" list, meaning he was ineligible for U.S. entry.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

FOR THE TRIBUNE-REVIEW

WASHINGTON - Why did President Bill Clinton meet with Grigori
Loutchansky, a man whose company the current CIA director has
Congress is "an organization associated with Russian criminal
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
- wondering. In October of 1993, Loutchansky was invited to the
to attend a private fund-raising dinner for the Democratic
Committee where Loutchansky met with the President. The
was memorialized in the Latvian newspaper SM Today on Nov. 12,
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
come on the heels of questions about dealings the president and
DNC have had with businessmen from Indonesia, South Korea and
Taiwan. Earlier this month, Republicans sharply criticized the
for meeting with a Miami drug dealer after he had made a
donation to Democratic coffers.
[ 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
reported that NORDEX, based in Vienna and Moscow, has been
of the top intelligence targets in the West". Since NORDEX was
formed in 1989 to trade Russian commodities and natural
with the West, allegations have surfaced that the firm has been
involved in money laundering, narcotics trafficking, arms deals,
other Russian Mafia criminal activities. Loutchansky, a former
professor and Latvian university official who once served a
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
into the West," as well as a means to continue earning hard
for Russian intelligence organizations. Domestic intelligence
believe numerous such companies were created for that purpose,
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
states like Iran, Iraq and North Korea. According to TIME, in the
three years the National Security Agency has "found indications"
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
matters - told the Tribune-Review that sources in British
believe NORDEX is "a rapidly proliferating amoeba or cancer,
constantly replicating and mutating into a network of business
engaged in enterprises ultimately controlled by Russian
NORDEX controls more than 100 Russian firms and has more than
three dozen businesses in the West.
In an unpublished, extensive interview with TIME magazine,
of which the Tribune-Review has obtained, Loutchansky explained
how he ended up meeting with Clinton: "I was invited by a friend
mine - Sam Domb - he was a trustee (sic) of the Democratic
Committee - to take part in a dinner which was given by Mr.
and Mr. Gore and 20 Senators ... in October 1993. It was in
Washington in some museum. ... I was invited as an outstanding
Loutchansky went on to say he spoke privately with the president
about two minutes, discussing the "problems of nuclear missiles in
Ukraine." Loutchansky also told the Jerusalem Report he "agreed
request from the president to deliver a private message to the
of the Ukraine." New York businessman Sam Domb told the
Tribune-Review he has no idea who Loutchansky was, and had
met him before the dinner. Domb, apparently agitated by the call,
no explanation as to why he was photographed with Loutchansky
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,
donated $90,000 to the DNC. In the past three years he has
over $155,000 to the committee. Loutchansky has stated he
donated any money to the Democratic Party or the Clinton-Gore
campaign. Federal law prohibits donations by foreign individuals
companies to political candidates or parties. Sometimes foreigners
to skirt the law by having American citizens make donations on
behalf. There is no evidence that has occurred here. But
has a track record in Russia and elsewhere of showering officials
money and gifts for favors and access. For instance TIME located a
dummy Swiss company owned by NORDEX called Dorotel AG
according to a NORDEX official, was nothing more than a bank
"used to make discreet payments for friends of NORDEX. ..."
Calls to the Democratic National Committee for comment as to
Loutchansky was invited to a fund-raising dinner for the
why Loutchansky, according to a source familiar with the case,
received a letter from the president thanking him for his support,
unreturned. Also unexplained is the invitation Loutchansky
just last year from the Democratic National Committee for a VIP
with Clinton. "Dear Mr. Loutchansky," wrote DNC finance director
Richard Sullivan, "I cordially invite you to have dinner with
Clinton on Tuesday, July 11, 1995, at the Hay Adams Hotel in
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
and invitations to see Clinton were "nothing short of scandal."
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.
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.
pinging late nite friday
all over it this weekend...........
Thanks for the bump!
