Re: Bruce Lindsey and Janet Reno
Dear Mr. Schippers:
I was very much impressed by Mr. Tracy and
Mr. Wacks, whom you personally dispatched to meet with me here
in Miami to talk about the above two individuals. I was just as
impressed with your wonderful efforts the other evening at the
conclusion of Judge Starr's testimony. I wish you were the I.C.
Having said that, I must confess puzzlement.
I was told by Mr. Tracy and Mr. Wacks, after spending 3.5 hours
with them, that they could hardly wait to talk to a Mr. John Gigliotti,
who has evidence of Janet Reno's compromising ties to organized
crime. Mr. Gigliotti, despite a follow-up call to Mr. Tracy yesterday,
has yet to be contacted.
If your staff is trying to establish a factual
basis for folding fundraising irregularities into the impeachment
inquiry, then why are leads not being pursued? Janet Reno will
never name an I.C. on fundraising because Clinton has information
with which he can extort her on this or any other matter. This
"firewall at Justice" has been at the heart of Clinton's
impeachable behavior since he took the oath of office.
Further, if you folks are going to interrogate Lindsey next week, then why in the world would my testimony not be taken about his witness tampering over the past decade? Of course what I have to give is hearsay. So what? It clearly falls within an exception: an admission against interest by Sam
Jones. And I have corroborating witnesses
to what Sam said about Lindsey's tampering, none of whom has been
called, by the way.
I took time to help you all. I was told I
did help you all. Now there is some sort of disconnect between
what I know you now know and what you are doing with what you
know. You are a man who wants to do his job. That is clear. What,
then, is going on?
I have the sense that the problem is not
on the staff but elsewhere. I have said I will swear to what I
know, as to both Reno and Lindsey. PLEASE LET ME DO SO.

After reading this I contacted Miami attorney
Jack Thompson, who has run against Reno in Miami and subsequently
provided information on her contacts with organized crime in Miami,
among other more tawdry undertakings.
It was David Shippers who called Jack Thompson
to set up the meeting in Miami. The investigators went to Miami
the next day and debriefed Jack for three and one-half hours about:
a) Bruce Lindsey's obstruction of justice and b) Janet Reno's
ongoing blackmail problems.
Jack originally gave the story to Chris Ruddy
at NewsMax, who is working on the Reno blackmail problem, which,
continue to conform to Jack's two year-old public musings about
her extortability. This was recently underscored by the Justice
Department's pronouncement at the end of last week that she likely
will not name an IC on fundraising as to either Gore or Clinton.

Re: Attorney General Janet Reno's Blackmail
Dear Director Freeh:
Monday, August 10, 1998, The Wall Street
Journal published my letter responding to a guest column written
by Lanny Davis about why Janet Reno should not seek an independent
counsel on fund raising. My published words point out that when
Lanny Davis called me to "vet" Reno's A.G. nomination,
"I gave Davis information, which could be corroborated by
multiple sources wholly independent of me, that Reno was unfit
to practice law, let alone serve as this country's top cop."
The Wall Street Journal would not have printed these incendiary words if its editors (including Micah Morrision, with whom I have spoken about this) did not already know from their own sources what I know: Reno uses call girls for sex and has a string of drunk driving incidents, which can be
substantiated by following leads provided
to the FBI field personnel who not surprisingly did a phony background
check while William Sessions was FBI Director. You know full well
why Sessions did not want to ruffle this Administration's feathers:
One of the most fruitful of these leads is provided by a Crystal Kazim, who is an organized crime call girl who provided sex for money to Reno on a regular basis. She says so. Private investigator John Gigliotti at [phone number] can convince you that this is the case. Additionally, six police officers who pulled Reno over for drunk driving were never contacted by the FBI. You know as well as I do why thorough background checks are supposed to be done on would-be Cabinet officials: to see if their character is sturdy enough to do the job, undeterred by either a character infirmity or by
extortion and the hands of those willing
to expose that infirmity.
Janet Reno, I state to you categorically,
hereby putting my law license on the line, has been blackmailed
in the past because of her substance abuse and criminal sexual
exploits, and she can be blackmailed now by a President who is
known to use "dirt" on people to deter them. This explains
why she will never appoint an independent counsel to investigating
fund-raising irregularities by the President or Vice President.
I respectfully recommend that you should
immediately have your FBI agents follow the leads that prove Reno's
blackmailability, and you should report your findings to the appropriate
Congressional oversight committees. I will state under oath all
you need to find the truth. As FBI Director, you have a duty to
ferret out this truth.
