I’m posting here for the first time the FBI’s 52-page application filed in 1995 for the interception of a cell phone belonging to Russian Mob boss Vyacheslav Ivankov.
Here is the link: Vyacheslav Ivankov Wiretap Affidavit
Couple of notes:
- The document doesn’t mention Trump and does not involve him (as far as I can tell).
- Publishing the information in this document has gotten journalist Robert I. Friedman sued. (See Komarov v. Advance Magazine Publishers). Most of the salient material in this affidavit can be found in Friedman’s excellent book Red Mafiya.
- This is an ongoing experiment in collaboration. If you find this document helpful, useful, or interesting or you have information that adds to the picture, please click the black contact button at the top of the screen and drop me a note.
