He has also admitted that he was the one who instigated the launch of the investigations related to Lulzim Basha's lobbying in the US and the accusations that he was being financed by the Russians. Asked by the judge in the case, Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, if on Nov. 25, he had "notified the Justice Department Attorney ... of a possible criminal investigation into a US citizen who had registered to lobby 'for a party that was not of Prime Minister Rama', Mr. McGonigal answered "Yes".
