He (Livingston) is charging $1.2m - He's charging Turkey - and this is not the government of Turkish Republic, this is ummm... who are these people who are paying him $1.2m per year? to do what? that is the question.he's charging Turkey, but not the government? is she talking about the ATC? the Turkish military? the embassy?
my guess is still the embassy - not least because we know for a fact that the embassy is the actual registered client - but let's look again at the VF article:
“Then (Douglas Dickerson) pointed at Sibel and said, ‘All you have to do is tell them who you work for and what you do and you will get in very quickly.’” Matthew could see that his wife was far from comfortable: “She tried to change the conversation to the weather and such-like.” But the Dickersons, says Matthew, steered it back to what they called their “network of high-level friends.” Some, they said, worked at the Turkish Embassy in Washington."and
"Sibel also recalled hearing wiretaps indicating that Turkish Embassy targets frequently spoke to staff members at the A.T.C., one of the organizations that Turkish Embassy targets frequently spoke to staff members at the A.T.C."and
"In her secure testimony, Edmonds disclosed some of what she recalled hearing. In all, says a source who was present, she managed to listen to more than 40 of the Chicago recordings supplied by Robertz. Many involved an F.B.I. target at the city’s large Turkish Consulate, as well as members of the American-Turkish Consulate, as well as members of the American-Turkish Council and the Assembly of Turkish American Associates. "and
"At the time, (haster) explained his decision by saying that he had received a letter from President Clinton arguing that the genocide resolution, if passed, would harm U.S. interests. Again, the reported content of the Chicago wiretaps may well have been sheer bravado, and there is no evidence that any payment was ever made to Hastert or his campaign. Nevertheless, a senior official at the Turkish Consulate is said to have claimed in one recording that the price for Hastert to withdraw the resolution would have been at least $500,000. "i'm pretty sure that's what is going on. The embassy is shovelling money at Livingston, which then gets slush-funded back into the GOP machine.
