BUSTED: @HillaryClinton’s Brothers Insisted on Venture Linked to Russian Mobster Grigori Loutchansky - GotNews: Hillary Clinton’s brothers Anthony and Hugh Rodham in 1999 initially refused to pull out of a business deal with Georgian politician Aslan Abashidze who is linked to Russian mobster Grigori Loutchansky. The CIA had testified to Loutchansky’s mob connections years earlier.
Pressure in 1999 from Clinton-era National Security Adviser Sandy Berger didn’t convince Hillary’s family to forego a sketchy $118 million deal involving Abashidze’s hazelnut-growing operation. Only political pressure not “to do any harm to the first lady or the administration” convinced them to abandon the deal, according to the LA Times.
