>    A $100 million lawsuit filed in federal court  today  charges
>the  Department of Justice with collusion with the Russian Mafia.
>The  lawsuit  alleges  perjury,  fraud,  torture,   and   witness
>tampering  by  named officers of the U.S. government on behalf of
>the Russian Mafia.
>    The lawsuit stems from the case of Alexandre  Konanykhine,  a
>Russian  banker  who  blew  the  whistle on a grand KGB scheme to
>smuggle hundreds of millions of dollars out of the  Soviet  Union
>at the time of its collapse. The loot is still stashed in foreign
>banks, some in Switzerland, and former KGB officers and Communist
>Party  officials  are  protecting  the  secret  through their new
>positions in the Russian Mafia and in the corrupt  government  of
>    After whistleblower Konanykhine was kidnapped by the  Russian
>Mafia,  he  escaped to the United States where he thought himself
>protected by the legal system. Words cannot describe  the  horror
>he  and  his  wife went through when they discovered that FBI and
>INS agents worked on behalf of former KGB officers in the Russian
>Mafia  to  have  him returned through extralegal means to Russia.
>Both the FBI and the INS are part of the Justice Department.
>    Mr. Konanykhine fought the deportation in court, and after  a
>long  legal battle against the Justice Department he was released
>from custody last July. During the case, reported in  the  August
>25  and September 1 issues of the Washington Weekly, the horrible
>and illegal methods employed by the U.S. government  against  Mr.
>Konanykhine  and  his  wife  were  revealed. Presiding judge T.S.
>Ellis, III, found the evidence "disturbing."  So much so, that on
>August   26   he  ordered  the  Justice  Department's  Office  of
>Professional Responsibility to investigate  official  wrongdoing.
>As  of  today, the OPR has yet to contact any of the witnesses in
>the case.
>    Justice Department investigations of itself are notorious for
>finding  "no  credible  evidence"  of  wrongdoing  by  government
>officials, so a more successful venue  may  be  a  lawsuit  filed
>today in federal court by Alexandre Konanykhine.
>    Mr. Konanykhine charges officers of the  Washington  District
>Office  of  the INS, including District Director William Carroll,
>Assistant District Director James Goldman  and  District  Counsel
>Eloise Rosas with conspiracy with one Lt. Colonel Volevodz of the
>Russian Military Procuracy to commit illegal extradition  of  him
>and his wife to Russia on behalf of the Russian Mafia.
>    Said officials are alleged to have  conducted  the  following
>illegal acts:
>  (1) perjury;
>  (2) fraud on the Court;
>  (3) fraud upon the United States;
>  (4) conspiracy to defraud the United States;
>  (5) giving conflicting testimony on separate occasions as  to
>  the same matter;
>  (6) conspiracy to kill, maim, or injure persons in a  foreign
>  country;
>  (7) torture (as defined in 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2340);
>  (8) combination to injure other in their reputation, business
>  or profession;
>  (9) tampering with witnesses;
>  (10) retaliating against witnesses;
>  (11) attempt to commit murder;
>  (12)  deprivation  of  civil  rights  under  color  of   law,
>  including the false arrest and imprisonment;
>  (13) search and seizure without warrant;
>  (14) false publications;
>  (15) disclosure of confidential information;
>  (16) breach of the confidentiality  provisions  of  8  U.S.C.
>  Sec. 552a(b).
>    The conspiracy is not limited to these named officials of the
>Clinton  administration,  however.  During  the  court hearing in
>July, a witness recounted that Eloise Rosas  had  told  him  that
>"the  INS  got  instructions  from the top to cooperate with this
>    How high is "the  top"  and  what  motive  does  the  Clinton
>administration  have  to  cooperate  with  the  Russian Mafia and
>former KGB officers?   Could  it  be  part  of  a  quid  pro  quo
>involving    Clinton   campaign   contributions   from   criminal
>individuals such as Grigory Loutchansky?
>    Alexandre Konanykhine explains that  the  stakes  are  on  an
>entirely  different scale. "It's not about how much Russians gave
>to the Democrats, it's about  how  much  the  Democrats  gave  to
>Russians.  Billions  have  been  spent  to  keep  Yeltsin  in the
>Kremlin--it now precludes the discussion of whether  Yeltsin  has
>built  a  Mafiocracy  instead  of  a  Democracy,"  he  tells  the
>Washington Weekly.  "Big corporations which benefit from business
>in  Russia  want  stability there even if it means stability of a
>criminal government."
>    Second,  Konanykhine  sees  himself  as   a   pawn   in   the
>globalization  efforts  of the FBI. "Director Freeh wants to make
>the FBI a global organization with presence  in  each  and  every
>country,  and  the  overhyped success of the close and productive
>friendship with the corrupt Russian government  is  the  linchpin
>for this globalization of FBI," he says.
>    Third,  Konanykhine   sees   a   failure   of   the   Clinton
>administration   and   the  mainstream  media  to  recognize  the
>villains. "Some officials still sincerely believe that Russia  is
>a  newborn  democracy and that the KGB successor agencies are now
>the best friends of the US government.  (An) excusable mistake if
>you  recall  that  Gorbachev, Perestroika, Democracy, the crushed
>Berlin Wall, etc. was praised everywhere, but the  story  of  the
>Russian  Criminal  Revolution  of 92-93 has never made its way to
>the international Press."
>    Lest anyone should believe that the Konanykhine case is  just
>one of those famous Clinton administration "bureaucratic snafus,"
>Mr. Konanykhine points to the parallel case of Jouri Nesterov,  a
>legal  U.S.  resident  since  1994, who is now fighting a similar
>deportation to Russia.
>    Mr. Nesterov claims that he played a small part in  a  secret
>and  politically explosive scheme by the Russian military to sell
>sophisticated arms to China,  and  that  most  of  the  proceeds,
>including his promised fee, were pocketed by high-level officials
>and allied Russian Mobsters. Those people, he says, now want  him
>back -- to silence him.
>    And again, incredibly, the Clinton administration is  helping
>Russian  Mobsters masquerading as government officials to silence
