We had a very unpleasant visit from the FBI and IRS agents yesterday morning and they walked out with more than 40 boxes of tax returns, forms, documents, books, flags, cds etc. The special agent said that they have a probable cause for money laundering, wire fraud, bank fraud..etc and I think that all of it stems from more than 35 years of watching me.
When I applied for my citizenship in 1996 the attorney asked for my record under the FOIC and got a file bigger than the NY city yellow pages with a lot of black lines to mark the names of the informants. . . .
When the special agent in charge was asked about the probable cause, he said that the judge knows but he could not tell us. Bottom line, I need help and was wondering if you know anyone who has time on his/her hand to help me as I am broke now because of my work for the children of Palestine and contribution to free the famlies from Hutto last year that cost me over 15000 dollars in legal, airline tickets and shipping their furniture.
Looking forward to hearing from you and thanks for your work for justice.
You can see some of my work through the links below which i think fermented the current situation.
