A member of the Russian Duma has obtained documents from the Russian government showing that the early political careers of Bill Clinton and Al Gore were financed by communist money.
Aleksey Mitrofanov, a leader in Russiaís Liberal Democrat party, submitted a request to the Federal Archive Service in Moscow for the documents. His actions were reported on October 5 by the Ekho Moskvy news agency in Moscow and translated by BBC News in London.
In a letter to Vladimir Koslov, Director of the Federal Archive Service, Mr. Mitrofanov specifically requested information about the Soviet Unionís relationship with the late Armand Hammer, an American industrialist, and U.S. Senator Albert Gore, Sr. BBCís monitoring of the Russian news report said Mr. Mitrofanov wanted documents about the decisions of the Soviet Politburo ìconcerning cooperation and relations with president and chairman of the board of directors of Occidental Petroleum Corporation Armand Hammer and the member of the board of directors of the above company and former Representative from Tennessee, Albert Gore, Sr.î
Mr. Mitrofanov told Moscowís Ekho Moskvy radio, ìI already have the information. My purpose is to get it officially.î
According to BBC, the Russian legislator told reporters in Moscow that the documents being sought would throw light on ìthe mechanism of supporting Armand Hammer and former Representative Albert Gore, Sr. by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.î
Mr. Mitrofanov charged that the Russian communists were behind the Senator Albert Goreís opposition to the Vietnam War. Vice President Al Goreís father was one of the most vocal opponent of President Lyndon Johnsonís American involvement in stopping the communist takeover of South Vietnam. The Russian Duma member also charged that the Vice Presidentís father also was instrumental in stopping a FBI investigation into Armand Hammerís business dealings with the Soviet communists. Speaking of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Mr. Mitrofanov declared, ìIn fact, they were financing Goreís coming out against the Vietnam War as well as Goreís assistance in closing an FBI investigation against Hammer.î
Mr. Mitrofanov also charged that it is common knowledge in Moscowís political circles that President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore received money early in their careers from Armand Hammer. That money, says Mr. Mitrofanov, was laundered by Hammer from the Soviet communist party. ìThe incumbent President Bill Clinton also started his political career on money given by Hammer, or, in fact, on Soviet money,î stated Mr. Mitrofanov. ìEverybody knows that Hammer got his most profitable contracts in the Soviet Union on Politburo decisions,î he said. Moreover, the BBC report said that Vice President Al Gore, Sr. also started his career on Hammerís money.
Interfax Russian News reported on October 25 that Mr. Mitrofanov told fellow deputies in the Russian State Duma that he had received a reply to his request for documents in the Russian archive. He stated that he was in possession of a reply concerning ìcontacts of the Politburo of the Soviet Communist partyís Central Committee with well-known American businessman Armand Hammer and Senator Albert Gore, Sr.î
He told the Duma deputies, ìThis document is classified and the deputies who would like to read it may do so in exchange for a written statement promising not to disclose its content.î
