Richard Ben-Veniste


Recommended Posts

Richard Ben-Veniste is an interesting figure that needs investigating. He served as an assistant U.S. attorney from 1968 to 1973, and was a leading figure in the prosecution of the Watergate scandal. He served as chief of the Watergate Task Force of the Watergate Special Prosecutor's Office. One of his assistants was Hillary Rodham (Clinton).

In March, 1984, Barry Seal was indicted at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for smuggling Quaaludes and laundering money. Former undercover narcotics investigator Stan Hughes told Daniel Hopsicker (Barry and the Boys) that: "When Barry got busted on the Quaalude thing, and I heard about their being government intervention to save his ass, I didn't believe it at first. But talk to any smuggler, and they'll tell you: they can always buy their way out of a dope deal."

In an attempt to avoid a long prison sentence, Seal made contact with George H. W. Bush. He then appeared before a secret session of Bush's Task Force on Drugs in Washington where he testified that the Sandinistas were directly involved in drug trafficking into the United States. Seal claimed that the Medellin Cartel had made a deal with the Sandinistas, awarding them cuts of drug profits in exchange for the use of an airfield in Managua as a trans-shipment point for narcotics.

This news was welcomed by President Ronald Reagan who wanted to launch an all out war on the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was now put under pressure to enlist Seal as an undercover informant with a special emphasis on the "Nicaraguan connection".

Seal also offered to provide information to the DEA implicating federal officials in the Iran-Contra scandal. This included Richard Ben-Veniste, who was Seal's lawyer. By this time, Ben-Veniste, was a close associate of several mobsters including Alvin Malnik. Another client was Bill Clinton, the Governor of Arkansas. Ben-Veniste served as chief counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee.

Most recently, Ben-Veniste was appointed to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States ("9/11 Commission").

Just a few words about Alvin Malnik. He was director of the Bank of World Commerce, a Bahamas-based institution. According to one investigation "millions of dollars passed through (Bank of World Commerce) and were reinvested in Syndicate-controlled projects in the United States."

The Bank of World Commerce had been established by high-ranking CIA official Paul Helliwell. For more on Helliwell see:

In the early 1970's, the IRS listed Malnick as one of Lansky's associates. He was considered a rackets figure by the Miami-Dade PD and Miami Strike Force. Malnick was one of the driving forces behind payday car title loan companies that prey on lower income residents who need fast $$.

Trafficante also had some connections with the Bank of World Commerce.

INterestingly he has close business ties to Michael Jackson

off shore accounts in Switzerland and the Bahamas....
