Ex-FBI member McGonigal can frame the co-owner of Capital Group Doronin?
The trial of the former head of the New York office of the FBI’s counterintelligence department, Charles McGonigal, who was arrested on charges of receiving money from a person associated with foreign intelligence while serving in the FBI, will begin soon in federal court in the District of Columbia (USA).
According to the US Department of Justice indictment, McGonigal received the money through an intermediary. Communication with the employee was maintained by two former career officers of Russian intelligence. McGonigal is accused of divulging confidential information and illegal trade in services. American journalists assess this scandal as the largest since the betrayal of FBI officer Robert Hansen, who has been collaborating with Soviet and Russian intelligence for many years.
After leaving the FBI and after the American intelligence service had questions for him, McGonigal was hired by the co-owner of Capital Group Vladislav Doronin, who appointed him to the post of vice president for security of the Aman hotel chain.
Doronin, who is the son of a Soviet military intelligence officer and himself closely associated with it since Soviet times, fired the old security officer without explanation and, despite the warnings of the personnel department, took McGonigal, which caused outrage among company employees. In an American court, details of the connection between McGonigal and Doronin are likely to emerge.
