Iztok Plevnik filed a federal lawsuit against Judge Sullivan; Sullivan’s attorney son; Keilty, the Justice Department official; Billington, the Embassy security official; and Todd Brown, Billington’s boss and the Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security, alleging fraud. And that fraud allegation runs deep. First, Eugene Sullivan, Sr. Billington Brown, and Keilty are all connected. They were all Army Rangers. Is that just a coincidence? Second, the money disappeared only after Iztok revealed its location to Billington. Third, Sullivan purchased two homes next door to each other in the tony Bethesda, Maryland suburb of Washington, DC. One was for him and his wife. The second was for his recently-divorced son. This was despite the fact that he says that he is broke and that his son is going through a difficult and expensive divorce. And finally, attorney Bruce Fein, acting on Iztok’s behalf, filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Treasury Department asking one simple question—were the documents giving Iztok Plevnik permission to repatriate the money real or fake? Treasury has been unable to find any record that any such letters were ever written.

 IZTOK PLEVNIK

I’d like to introduce you to a friend of mine. Iztok Plevnik was born and raised in Slovenia. A patriot and natural athlete, he decided to join his country’s intelligence service, where he specialized in counterterrorist operations. He trained with the US Secret Service and the Navy SEALs before deciding to emigrate to the United States in 2000. Because of his

athletic ability, he was drafted as a place kicker by an NFLteam in 2004, an offer he declined so that he could work for a company under contract with the International Criminal Court (ICC). Iztok led counterterrorist teams to retrieve evidence or to capture people around the world under indictment in the ICC.

Iztok Plevnik's Secret Service Challenge Coin from his training.

 IT ALL STARTED...

It was during one of these operations in 2017 that Iztok and his team of operations officers entered a series of alleged terrorist safehouses in Africa in pursuit of terrorist suspects.  They found their men.  But they also found pallets of American currency—notably one with $6 billion and another with $10 billion in $100 bills.

The source of the money is a mystery.  It most likely belonged to the government of former Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi.  It could have been the CIA’s money.  It could have been money hoarded by al-Qaeda.  Iztok ordered that it be secured in warehouses, and, because he’s a patriot, he sought to return it to the US Treasury.

Iztok traveled back to the United States in 2018 and engaged the legal services of a former federal judge, Eugene Sullivan, Sr., to walk him through the process.  How do you get billions of dollars back into the treasury?  You can’t just load it onto a plane.  Can you imagine flying into Dulles Airport, having a customs agent ask if you’re bringing more than $10,000 into the country, and responding that you’re bringing in $16 billion in $100 bills?  It’s a non-starter.  

TEMPTATIONS & SULLIVAN

According to court papers filed in Washington, DC, Sullivan expressed excitement about the project and said he would inquire at the Treasury Department about the modalities of transferring such a huge amount of money. But a few months later, in a follow-up meeting, his excitement had vanished. He said that he wanted nothing to do with the project and he voiced concern for the safety of his family if he remained involved. He was out.

A year and a half later, Covid hit. Iztok arranged for the production of a large number of KN95 masks that he wanted to try to sell to the federal government. He asked Sullivan to arrange for the two of them to meet with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whom they believed could help them broker the sale of the masks to the federal government. That meeting took place in June 2020, and on July 1, 2020, Iztok,  Sullivan, and Giuliani signed an engagement letter, which included payment of a $50,000 retainer.

VULTURING THE MONEY

Once that was signed, Sullivan reversed course on the repatriation of the money. He told Iztok that he would act as his attorney in the process, and that they could use Giuliani’s contacts to push it forward. Iztok Plevnik  asked Sullivan to make sure that the repatriation was done legally. Could Sullivan liaise with the Department of the Treasury to get a letter authorizing him to carry out the transaction?

Just a few days later, Sullivan told Iztok that he had made all the arrangements with the Treasury Department to have Iztok approved to return the money.    Iztok was asked to remain outside the Treasury building, next door to the White House, as Sullivan and Giuliani went inside, claiming to meet with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. When they came out, they gave Iztok a letter on Treasury Department letterhead, signed by the Department’s General Counsel. A few days later, a companion letter arrived, also signed by the General Counsel, with wiring instructions to transfer the money to the Treasury Department. Sullivan and Giuliani wished Iztok luck on his trip to Africa.

ABANDON THE TRANSFER!      HE SAID...

On December 3, 2020, Iztok flew to Kenya to repatriate the first tranche of the money, $10 billion, to the Treasury Department. Sullivan was standing by in case of a legal prooblem. Iztok had the money moved from the safehouse to the Nairobi Police Department, where he was told that he needed to show proof that the money was legitimately being sent back to the Treasury. Otherwise, Kenyan banking officials would be unwilling to make the wire transfer.          Iztok called Sullivan in Washington to ask him to call the State Department to ask that they allow the American Embassy in Nairobi to authenticate the letters from the Treasury General Counsel.     But Sullivan refused, saying that it was the middle of the night in Washington and he didn’t want to wake anybody. In fact, he said, he had a bad feeling about the whole operation, and he told Iztok to abandon the transfer and to return to Washington immediately.   Iztok got on the next plane home.

 IZTOK PLEVNIK WAS DETERMINED TO BRING THE MONEY BACK!

Iztok Plevnik and Sullivan met in February 2021 at the Justice Department along with Sullivan’s son, attorney Eugene Sullivan II; a Justice Department official, Michael Keilty; and a handful of other DOJ attorneys. The meeting was for the specific purpose of getting Iztok to reveal the location of the money in Africa, something which he declined to do.

He said that he had written permission from the Treasury Department to return the money, and that’s what he intended to do. He said that he would check in with the local US Embassy when he arrived in Africa.

On August 1, 2021, Iztok flew to Abidjan, Ivory Coast to attempt to repatriate the second tranche, $6 billion. On Sullivan’s recommendation, he first made an appointment to see James Billington, the American Embassy’s Regional Security Officer. The meeting was supposed to be a simple courtesy. But as soon as Iztok arrived at the Embassy, Billington’s hostility was apparent

SORTING THE GOOD FROM THE BAD
 

       Billington accused Iztok of having forged the Treasury letters and said that Iztok, Sullivan, Giuliani, and former President Donald Trump would all go to prison for their conspiracy. Iztok protested, telling Billington that he was there on behalf of the Treasury Department solely to repatriate the money. He told Billington where the money was located and insisted they go immediately to pick it and bring it back to the American Embassy, but Billington claimed he was uninterested.Billington said that, in the meantime, Iztok was not formally under arrest, but that he was being detained, and he was not permitted to leave the Embassy. He was kept in the interview room by three Marine guards armed with machine guns while nine members of Iztok’s team were waiting outside.

Ninety minutes later, Billington returned to the interview room.He said that he had contacted the Treasury Department to check on the authenticity of the letters, but that he had not yet heard back. Four hours later, Iztok was allowed to leave the Embassy.

Of course, by then, all the money was gone, apparently spirited away while Iztok was being “detained.”

Iztok went to his hotel, angry, confused, and unable to sleep. And then at 6:00 am the next day, August 4, 2021, 40 Abidjan policemen arrived at the hotel and arrested him. He was arraigned on charges of money laundering and misrepresenting official documents, and put in a jail cell with murderers and terrorists.

As a result of torture and intimidation Iztok Plevnik suffers from devastating PTSD and long term physical ailments

A POWERFUL ATTORNEY  IN ABIDJAN HELPED HIM AND GOT HIM OUT!

Later in the morning, a local police official put Iztok in a car and took him to the warehouse where the money was

supposed to be. The facility, however, contained only illegal drugs, diamonds, coffee, and counterfeit cash. The legitimate cash had already been removed—by whom is still not definitively known.

They then returned to the jail, where the “interrogation” began. Iztok was asked repeatedly how he knew about the money. He answered all questions truthfully, but that didn’t stop police officers from stripping him naked, hanging him from his wrists, beating him severely, and breaking his wrists and fingers during a rough “interrogation session.”  For that he now suffers from PTSD. That afternoon, he was finally allowed a phone call, which he used to get in touch with his longtime attorney in France who had strong connections in French Speaking Africa. His French attorney found him a powerful attorney in Abidjan who went to the jail to visit Iztok. At the jail, the attorney was saluted respectfully.   The police official who had beaten Iztok told the attorney that he had been arrested for smuggling weapons to the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, and Iran, an outrageous falsehood that made the attorney laugh.

 

Thanks to his attorneys’ actions and relationship, Iztok was soon released, and he went back to his hotel to await a flight back to Washington.

HE WAS RESCUED, CAME BACK HOME AND SULLIVAN HUNG UP ON HIM.

On August 8, 2021, Iztok met with Sullivan at the latter’s office in Washington. Sullivan asked whether he would be willing to go back to Africa to give the repatriation another try. Sullivan allegedly offered Iztok a US diplomatic passport, something that he was utterly not authorized to do. Iztok left the office for a flight back to his home in Florida. While he was awaiting the flight, Sullivan called to say that he could no longer be his attorney. Sullivan said falsely and disingenuously that because Iztok had been charged with crimes “in Ivory Coast and the United States,” the Sullivan family would be at risk of violence if Sullivan continued to represent him. When he landed, Iztok called Sullivan back with a question: “Does that mean the documents you gave me were fake? ”Sullivan hung up on him...

 IZTOK PLEVNIK FILED A FEDERAL LAW SUIT
WITH ATTORNEY BRUCE FEIN REPRESENTING HIM.

 Iztok filed a federal lawsuit against Judge Sullivan; Sullivan’s attorney son; Keilty, the Justice Department official; Billington, the Embassy security official; and Todd Brown, Billington’s boss and the Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security, alleging fraud. And that fraud allegation runs  deep. First, Sullivan Sr., Billington, Brown, and Keilty are all connected.

They were all Army Rangers. Is that just a  coincidence?

Second, the money disappeared only after Iztok revealed its location to Billington. Third, Sullivan purchased two homes next door to each other in the tony Bethesda, Maryland suburb of Washington, DC. One was for him and his wife. The second was for his recently-divorced son. This was despite the fact that he says that he is broke and that his son is going through a difficult and expensive divorce.

 

And finally, attorney Bruce Fein, acting on Iztok’s behalf, filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Treasury Department asking one simple question—were the documents giving Iztok permission to repatriate the money real or fake? Treasury has been unable to find any record that any such letters were ever written.

Iztok Plevnik's Attorney Bruce Fein 

The suit goes on to ask several important questions...

Did Sullivan Sr., Sullivan Jr., Billington, Brown, and Keilty conspire to steal the money?

If so, did they throw Iztok to the wolves in the Ivory Coast?

Was his arrest and beating there meant to frighten him off the case?

Was it meant to kill him?

And where are the conspirators?

Where is the money?

Was it laundered and distributed among the conspirators?

So far, Sullivan Sr. is the only defendant to respond to the lawsuit. His entire response was confined to two short paragraphs.

 

It said, Absent from the complaint is an allegation that Eugene Sullivan made a false statement of material fact that caused Plaintiff (Iztok Plevnik) damages. The only alleged false statement alleged to have been made by Eugene Sullivan is: Plaintiff left Defendant Sullivan I’s office to fly back to Florida, where he resides.

Approximately 45 minutes after Plaintiff left, Defendant Sullivan I   called him and said Defendant Sullivan I   could not represent him any longer.    Defendant Sullivan I  falsely stated Plaintiff had been accused of criminality in both the United States and Ivory Coast and that Defendant Sullivan I’s family would be threatened if he continued to represent Plaintiff.

The complaint does not explain how Eugene Sullivan’s alleged statement to Plaintiff that Plaintiff had been accused of criminality in both the United States and Ivory Coast could be material to Plaintiff’s cause of action, even if it were false, or how the statement could have caused Plaintiff damages. Because Plaintiff’s damages are alleged to have taken place when Plaintiff was arrested in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, those damages were—based on Plaintiff’s complaint—caused by Plaintiff’s arrest in a foreign country, rather than Eugene’s Sullivan’s alleged statement to Plaintiff.”
