Clinton Ties to Russian Visitor Questioned: Solomon Seeks Records on Businessman


Seper, Jerry, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


The chairman of the House Rules Committee has asked the White House for records of all meetings and correspondence between President Clinton and Grigori Loutchansky, a White House visitor and head of a firm identified as being tied to Russian criminal activity.

Rep. Gerald B.H. Solomon, New York Republican, this week also sought records on Sam Domb, a New York real estate executive who brought Mr. Loutchansky as a guest to a White House dinnerin October 1993 and donated $160,000 to the Democratic National Committee over 12 months after the dinner.

"I do not take pleasure in noting that the selective and carefully controlled release of information by the White House has obliged Congress to make repeated follow-up inquiries about possible fund-raising irregularities and conflicts of interest," Mr. Solomon said in a letter to the president.

"Public accounts have placed you, Mr. President, and Vice President Gore with both Mr. Loutchansky and Mr. Domb at least once," Mr. Solomon said in his request for the records.

Mr. Loutchansky, head of an Austrian-based commodities trading firm known as Nordex, got a private two-minute meeting with Mr. Clinton and his picture taken with the president. He also was invited by the DNC to a fund-raising dinner with the president at the Hay-Adams Hotel in July 1995 but did not attend.

A Russian who now lives in Israel, Mr. Loutchansky was not available for comment yesterday. Mr. Domb also was unavailable but has said he took Mr. Loutchansky to the dinner as part of a business venture that "didn't work out."

"Any DNC invitation to Loutchansky in 1995 would show a severe lack of scrutiny and appalling bad judgment. It would be unwise in the extreme for there to be any ties between the U.S. government and Loutchansky or Loutchansky's company, Nordex," R.
