Re: Criminal Conspiracy to Violate Federal Civil Rights and Anti-Racketeering Laws
Dear Mr. Miller, Mr. O’Neill, and Mr. Acosta:
The Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court, along with certain of their personnel, are at the center of a criminal conspiracy to violate the federal civil rights of a number of Florida attorneys in violation of Title 18, USC, Section 241 and Section 242.
These state governmental entities, along with certain private sector entities and their respective agents, are also violating the federal RICO Act. One facet of this criminal activity is that lawyers who purchase liability insurance from The Bar-created Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company are purchasing “Bar discipline protection” from FLMIC, on whose board improperly sit The Bar’s Executive Director and certain Florida Bar Governors. This arrangement probably also violates federal anti-trust laws as well.
A formal poll of Bar members corroborates the fact, not the surmise, that The Bar and the Florida Supreme Court target lawyers for reasons that have nothing to do with ethics violations whatsoever. Further, various predicate RICO acts are being committed by The Bar, including but not limited to extortion, mail fraud, perjury, bribery, fraud, witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and infliction of bodily harm.
In one instance, The Bar has gone so far as to steal the confidential medical records of a Florida lawyer for the purposes of extortion.
I am not the only victim of this criminal conspiracy. There are scores of other lawyers as well who have been targeted, many of whom are willing to come forward along with non-lawyer citizens who are willing to make these charges, name the names, and provide proof of all of this under oath.
Some individuals who deserve particular scrutiny in a criminal investigation are The Bar’s Executive Director Jack Harkness, who is at the center of the above-noted FLMIC scam and The Bar’s current President Frank Angones, who is part of The Bar’s ongoing criminal violations of the aforementioned civil rights and RICO laws.
One other person who should be targeted by a federal investigation of these matters is Miami attorney Benedict P. Kuehne, who was recently indicted by “Main Justice” at the Justice Department for money laundering. Mr. Kuehne is a Bar Governor who has extorted me and who, despite his federal indictment, continues, improperly, to serve on The Bar’s Board of Governors. Mr. Kuehne has bribed a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge to secure a certain result in a Bar “disciplinary” matter and has done so with a “campaign contribution” coordinated with a Bar prosecutor. That judge has been found to have been the beneficiary of a forged document that has now spawned a state criminal investigation.
Further, the Miami law firm of Greenberg, Traurig is at the center of this criminal conspiracy, as it has been repeatedly caught engaging in fraud to protect The Bar from scrutiny. This is the law firm that coughed up Jack Abramoff, so it appears it has learned nothing from that experience.
I have written all three of you US Attorneys because this criminal conspiracy involving state officials and private citizens stretches across all three of Florida’s federal districts.
I make these assertions, on my own behalf and on behalf of others, knowing full well the consequences of fabricating any of these charges or in any fashion shading the truth.
I have been a lawyer in continuous good standing in this state for thirty-one years. I am a Christian, and thus I am not allowed by God and His Word to bear false witness.
Please advise how we are now to proceed. I would suggest that a special grand jury be impaneled, as provided by federal law, in one of your jurisdictions.
I solemnly swear, under penalty of perjury, that the foregoing facts are true, correct, and complete, so help me God.
Signed, John B. Thompson, March 10, 2008
