    Bobby Thompson, 67, but identified as John Donald Cody, was charged with a $100 million multistate fraud by the government of the United States. The man allegedly ran a fraudulent charity, collecting millions that authorities said did not make it to the Navy veterans it was intended to benefit.

    The defendant said many of the donations were received from prominent politicians, with most of them Republicans. He also noted that he worked under a “nonofficial coverâ€￾ for the CIA and that the charity he ran was â€￾a US intelligence community/White House and Republican Party manipulated operation.â€￾

    Thompson’s attorney, Joseph Patituce, said subpoenas for testimony by Boehner, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, two DeWine predecessors and other leading Ohio political figures, mostly Republicans, were needed to prove the charity’s political contributions were legal.

    But Brad Patituce, an assistant attorney general handling the trial, said that if “by some fantasyâ€￾ there was such government involvement, it did not exonerate the defendant.

    Patituce said he didn’t want to tip the defense strategy but said it would involve the CIA and a secretive operation decades ago in Arizona.

    According to the Tampa Bay Times reports, the CIA agents cited by Thompson and which are directly connected to the case, do not exist.

    The alleged fraud spanned 41 states, including up to $2 million in Ohio. As government authorities claim no money were used to benefit veterans.

    Issue is he cant run a syndicate like this without support from the senators or authorities...
    Total of $100M is kind of money that might have been put good use for the veterans.
