SHERMAN SKOLNICK INTERVIEW
Sherman Skolnick was interviewed on Radio Free America
(Shortwave, 5.810 mHz, mon-fri, 9 pm cst) on September 2, 1994.
Mr. Skolnick is a veteran investigative reporter from Chicago and
founder of the "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts" in
that city. Following is my transcription of that interview.
Host/Interviewer is Tom Valentine.

Another director of Pender's company was Clint W. Murchison, jr.,
a close pal of Nixon. And there are some that claim that
Murchison was involved in the JFK plot.
- Yeah, I've heard that too. Don't give it a lot of credence, but
I've heard it.
- Yeah, right. Now what's interesting is that Pender reportedly
helped install Bua in Chicago as a federal district judge. One of
the first things that Bua did as a judge was to cover up the Alan
Dorfman case. Alan Dorfman was the wizard of the Teamster's
pension fund. And he was murdered just after the BBC interviewed
Dorfman about his CIA connections, that is, running CIA money
through the Teamster's pension fund. We [CCCC] were the only ones
that worked on the story, yet there was a BBC crew here in
Chicago. The BBC did not go with [televise/broadcast] the
interview. We're the only ones that talk about it.
- That's right, remember? You had that BBC fella come on my show!
- Yeah, right. O.K. Now, a case involving the estate of Dorfman
ended up with Bua. And he covered it up.
- That's his job, obviously! He was put in there by the powerful
Reagan bunch and whoever's behind them...
- O.K. But now, here: this grand jury in another part of the
country is reportedly hearing testimony that Bua was the
"courier" or "bag man" for reported graft by a major defense
contractor to the Reagan White House and the Bush White House.
That was the Northrop company.
The head of Northrop, according to previous stories, already had
been found guilty of certain misconduct regarding the Defense
Department. But here is Bua, apparently involved in some way with
Northrop, corrupting the Reagan and Bush White House.
In some way it's tied in with Pender and this overall thing.
- This is not what we normally mean when we say a "Washington
- Right. Now the one that has just been arrested (and I think he's
gonna be brought back to Chicago from Fort Lauderdale) was Joseph
Polichemi. P-o-l-i-c-h-e-m-i. And according to authorities in the
county down there in Florida, he's got the largest home in the
county, assessed -- they got a picture of it in the Tribune --
assessed at $5.2 million. And he apparently funneled some of this
pension fund rip-off money out of the country to a Luxembourg
bank -- it is so contended in the Tribune. But what they left
out of the story is the apparent connection of Polichemi to Bua,
to Northrop, to the entire situation, of which the Housing
Authority [CHA] pension fund rip-off is only a small part. It is
a tremendous, several hundred million dollar scandal, and the
$12 million is just, uh the pension fund has been embezzled is a
- Yeah, it's potatoes. O.K. My guest is Sherman Skolnick. You're
hearing all this for the first time. I'm Tom Valentine. This is
Radio Free America.
This is Tom Valentine. We are back live. It's Radio Free
America. And we're talking with Sherman Skolnick, and he is
filling us in now on the goings-on, of the rip-off, of the
Chicago Housing Authority pension fund for a "measly" $12
million. But pension funds have been ripped-off for a long time
and there's gonna be a real collapse of pension funds shortly!
Unfortunately. We've been talking about that for a long time.
- And so Spotlight has done the most in bringing that out to the
- Yes we have.
- Uh now another group of details that is involved here, which
we've been working on for some time, involves the CIA "black
budget" [i.e., the part of CIA's budget which is classified] and
the use of savings & loan that are in failing condition. One book
came out on this by a Houston...
- Peter Brouton(sp?). [CN -- mentioned also in L.J. Davis
interview] And it's an outstanding book. Pete was a guest on
this show back when he wrote it.
- The Mafia, The CIA, and George Bush.
- ...found out there's 26 S&Ls, that were actually operated by the
CIA, in Colorado and in Texas. He never got around to the Chicago
end of it. But we've [CCCC] been working on it and he may use
some of our material in an upcoming book.
But there are 3 S&Ls, in Chicago, in the Chicago area, tied in to
the CIA black budget -- which is also involved in this overall
picture that I've been spelling out! The 3 savings and loans are,
Libertyville Savings & Loan (which is a northwest suburb of
Chicago), Olympia Savings & Loan, and Clyde Savings & Loan.
Olympia Savings & Loan had an unlisted director, Dr. Earl
Bryan, who is very much mentioned in the Ins...
- Ho ho ho. That's the man who stole Inslaw!
- And unlawfully sold the Inslaw software to foreign intelligence
Clyde Savings, a director of it has been congressman Henry Hyde.
And the Resolution Trust Corporation brought an action against
Henry Hyde, claiming multi-million dollar misfeasance. The CIA
angle began to be involved, and the judge in the Henry, uh Henry
Hyde case ordered all proceedings to be impounded. They brought
in a lawyer from the CIA, and the case is proceeding only in
chambers. And the docket shows that there has to be a 10-day
notice before anything is even considered to be public! But we
know a lot about it because, we have, on our TV show, we have
publicly charged that Henry Hyde, a purported congressman, is
actually the head, the head of the CIA's black budget and has
more power than the director of Central Intelligence.
Now I'm sure some of your listeners will immediately come to the
conclusion there's something unconstitutional, because a
congressman in the legislative branch is not supposed to be
doing anything in the executive branch, of which the CIA is a
part! And yet he is apparently the head of the CIA black budget
-- congressman Henry Hyde. And the case against him in the
federal district court here is being bottled up in chambers! It
is shown on the docket of the case and we've been investigating
that case and we know that they brought in an attorney for the
CIA to work this thing.
So you can see why Chicago is so important...
- It is.
- ...the thing, in the CIA's black budget, in the Polichemi case,
in the BCCI case. Apparently the CIA is working their black
budget tricks through Chicago!
- Well you pointed that out when we went clear back to your very,
very sensational show, on this show, and in The Spotlight, when
you said that congressman Henry Gonzalez, the idiot of the
Whitewater hearings but the genius against the Fed [i.e., Federal
Reserve] -- I mean, he demanded information on BCCI and the
Banco Lavoro Nacional from Chicago, Illinois, and they wouldn't
give it to him!
