APPEAL of Donald Stone in FOIA Request
EOUSA-2018-001308 April 11, 2020
Any DOJ documents that would indicate the exact amount of taxpayer money the various DOJ spent protecting and /or promoting the business, and/or financial and/or personal interest of Gilbert Sapperstein (deceased 2016).
So the DOJ/FBI have no idea how many U.S. tax dollars the DOJ/FBI spent protecting the criminal activities of Charles Richard Longo Sr. and Gilbert Sapperstein and their associates.
Stone is using FOIA for its original purpose to confirm his allegations of corruption at DOJ/FBI in MD., D.C., and FL. spanning a period of about 25 years, from Christopher Wray to Louis Freeh and from Rod Rosenstein to Janet Reno and to provide a look at what appear to be an unlimited number of nefarious schemes used by DOJ/FBI to protect a Charles Richard Longo Sr. and a Gilbert Sapperstein while they engaged in what is best summarized as alleged racketeering based in Maryland and in D.C., Virginia, and Florida.
FOIA requester Donald Stone appeals this matter for these reasons and others. Inadequate search.
The allegation is that the DOJ/FBI can't seem to find any documents pertaining to Gilbert Sapperstein or his associate Charles Richard Longo Sr. while Longo was fleecing the U.S. taxpayer out of $12 million in Pell grants and with an estimated 2000 victims in the MD., D.C. and VA. area while under investigation by the FBI and DOJ. FBI has an approx. 280 page file on Longo but has refused to release
about 40 pages even though Longo is deceased.
Gilbert Sapperstein managed to steal and launder an estimated $3.5 million from early 1990's to 2003 while allegedly under investigation by Maryland FBI agents Marina Murphy and Dave Midura.
The allegation is that even though we have a Federal Records Act, the documents that would implicate top tier DOJ lawyers and FBI agents in a 'pattern and history of alleged criminal misconduct have now seemed to have disappeared. Or borrowing a phrase from President Trump in the Flynn case certainly applies to this matter concerning the conduct of the DOJ/FBI :
President Donald J. Trump “So now it is reported that, after destroying his life [Flynn] & the life of his wonderful family (and many others also), the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has “lost” the records of General Michael Flynn. How convenient. I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!” March 15, 2020
the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has “lost” the records of Gilbert Sapperstein and Charles Richard Longo Sr. How convenient.
How Convenient the FBI/DOJ have allegedly lost the following records:
1. DOJ has lost the files on Charles Richard Longo Sr.
2. DOJ/FBI have lost the files on Gilbert Sapperstein
3. The lost or missing FBI 302 reports of Jane and/or George Chamberlain pertaining to the FBI investigation by agents Marina Murphy and Dave Midura into Anne Arundel Economic Development Council.
4.The lost or missing telephone records of the FBI investigation by agents Marina Murphy and Dave Midura into Anne Arundel Economic Development Council.
5. The lost or missing FBI 302 report of a personal interview that Donald Stone had requested by the FBI in West Palm Beach, FL. on or about April 2001 where the female FBI agent concealed her identity from Stone. Initially Stone thought this was simply an oversight on the agents part but in retrospect believes it was intentional. Stone believes her name was Kit Wilcox. Her boss, the SAC was alleged to be Reed Robertson.
6. The lost or missing telephone interview of Florida resident, Donald Stone by a Maryland Assistant U.S. Attorney sometime in late 1994 or early 1995. This interview may been used to prepare criminal indictments against Longo for alleged federal bankruptcy fraud.
7. The lost or missing numerous documents Stone emailed directly to the FBI RIDs division in Winchester, VA. pertaining to Longo, Sapperstein et al. RIDS Executive David Hardy allegedly claims he can't find these documents.
8. The lost or missing telephone records between the Florida FBI agent that conducted the interview of Stone (alleged to be Kit Wilcox and the Maryland FBI agent Marina Murphy or Dave Midura, Prior to or after the sham interview Wilcox conducted of Stone in 2001.
9. The lost or missing records of Stone's numerous contacts with FBI/DOJ in Maryland and Florida.
Additionally, Stone alleges that the DOJ/FBI were co-conspirators in Longo's federal bankruptcy fraud schemes because it looks very much like the MD. DOJ was preparing alleged federal criminal indictments against Longo in late 1994 or early 1995 but, suddenly pulled their punches and circled their wagons to protect Longo because of his association with the politically well connected Gilbert Sapperstein.
Further evidence of these DOJ/FBI fraud schemes were when Stone caught 6 DOJ lawyers from MD. And FL. Lying in federal court in FL. in early 1998, Trying to white wash the criminal activities of Longo as a business dispute or civil matter.
After about 25 years of dealing with the corrupt and compromised DOJ/FBI it's fairly obvious that the DOJ/FBI are predictably corrupt and compromised, that they would allegedly disappear or lose documents that would allegedly implicate them in a pattern & history of criminal misconduct and violations of the Federal RICO statutes, best defined as the operation of the DOJ/FBI as a “criminal enterprise” complete with the numerous predicate acts, conspiracy, mail & wire fraud, federal bankruptcy fraud.
As President Obama made clear in Executive Order 13526, §1.7: “In no case shall information be
classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified in order to: (1) conceal
violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error; (2) prevent embarrassment to a person,
organization, or agency
The three most common alleged fraud schemes DOJ/FBI have used to protect Longo and Sapperstein et al are:
1. Fraud on the Courts
2. Fraudulent concealment of exculpatory documents
3. Fraud in the omission
For these reasons and others Stone Appeals this matter.
