Will the American Congress investigate Edi Rama? Republicans public letter to the FBI about McGonigal. Urgent request cleared (DOCUMENT)
Written by SOT.COM.AL 3 Shkurt 2023
The Judiciary Committee of the US Congress has requested information from the FBI regarding the implications for which Charles McGonigal, a former senior counterintelligence official, is being investigated.
Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, and Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, wrote a letter to the FBI director requesting materials and information on McGonigal.
Republicans are also seeking a special hearing to discuss the FBI's investigation into McGonigal, including whether the bureau is undertaking any reviews to determine how Russia and its oligarchs were able to influence senior FBI officials. . Jordan and Gaetz set a deadline of February 16 for a response.
They have demanded that he turn over to the committee all personnel records relating to McGonigal; documents and communications “referring to or related to the FBI's investigative evaluation and response process” related to McGonigal; and materials related to the FBI's efforts to mitigate the national security risks posed by McGonigal's alleged actions.
A five-count indictment unsealed in federal court in New York last week accused McGonigal of working for Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Deripaska has been under US sanctions since 2018, and federal prosecutors allege that McGonigal and Sergey Shestakov, a former Russian diplomat turned US citizen, worked for Deripaska to investigate an unnamed rival Russian oligarch in 2021.
McGonigal po përballet gjithashtu me akuza federale në Uashington, D.C., në lidhje me të paktën 225,000 dollarë që ai dyshohet se ka marrë nga një person me interesa biznesi në Evropë dhe që ka punuar për një shërbim të huaj inteligjence.
Ne akt akuze theksohej se McGonigal i ishte kerkuar një hetim për një shtetas amerikan, që ishte regjistruar për të bërë lobim “për një parti që nuk ishte e kryeministrit Rama”. Sipas akt-padisë, McGonigal kishte marrë informacion për këtë lobist nga Agron Neza dhe Dorian Ducka.
Sipas akt-akuzës, nga shtatori 2017 deri në mars 2018, McGonigal dhe Kryeministri Rama janë takuar 4 herë në Shqipëri dhe në SHBA.Takimi i parë mes Ramës dhe McGonigal ishte realizuar me 9 shtator, takimi tjetër me 20 nentor 2017 e me pas në dhjetor te po atij vitit në Nju Jork. Në akt padi theksohet se McGonigal ka marrë të paktën 4 herë informacione nga Agron Neza dhe Dorian Ducka që lidhen me lobistin dhe në një rast theksohet se informacionet vinin nga zyra e kryeministri. Dhe një rast tjetër theksohet se Dorian Ducka ndihmoi në organizimin e një takimi mes zyrës së FBI-së në Nju Jork dhe dëshmitarëve në Evropë, duke paguar mes të tjerash për shpenzime udhëtimeve
McGonigal is said to have played a role in the FBI's decision to launch its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible ties between former President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia. This is another reason why Republicans are looking for in-depth investigations into McGonigal's political attacks.
