In September, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., will hear a case about the 1956 disappearance and presumed murder of a Columbia University professor, Jesus Galindez, and through happenstance and possibly misaligned stars, the case could prevent Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings on President Trump, Russia, collusion, and obstruction of justice from being released or even sent to Congress.

The case pits the Justice Department against Stuart McKeever, a lawyer and author who has extensively researched Galindez's disappearance and possible murder in the Dominican Republic. He wants a judge to unseal a D.C. grand jury's report on Galindez's disappearance, and the Justice Department is arguing that judges don't have "inherent authority" to release most grand jury reports, including, potentially, Mueller's final report.

This case was the catalyst for Trujillo's downfall. Interesting.

Even more interesting is that Jesus de Galíndez son publicly supports Ramfis Domínguez Trujillo's candidacy to the DR presidency.

He himself says that first his father disappeared in NYC and a short time later his mother disappeared too.

This isn't interesting. It's shocking.

This is speculation, but

This is speculation, but...

the sealed files will probably reveal the ex-CIA/FBI men were involved in the 'rendition' of Jesus Galindez.

I don't believe the Eisenhower Administration would have had anything to do with it. They found out afterwards, and the US was left with a dilemma. It is highly probably that rogue Americans were paid by Trujillo to plan and carry out the abduction. These men would have known better to lie to the American government, so they probably confessed to everything immediately when questoned by the FBI. If true, that would mean President Eisenhower knew exactly what had happened to Jesus Galindez and Trujillo's involvement in it, and yet he decided to keep quiet. That would not make President Eisenhower look good.

The 'Galindez Case' was a media firestorm in the mid-to late 1950s. President Eisenhower was asked no less than 11 questions about the case during Presidential press conferences. And yet, if he did know what had happened to Galindez, he decided not to reveal anything. Perhaps President Eisenhower feared toppling Trujillo would lead to a communist takeover on the DR?

I personally do not believe the US government would have allowed this kidnapping to happen. I don't. Eisenhower probably found out months after the fact, and was given a Fait accompli to deal with. Eisenhower turned on Trujillo, telling his staff that "Trujillo is just another Batista."

The narrative may change after the release of the sealed files, but the bottom line remains the same: The Galindez kidnapping happened on American soil, an absolute taboo. Trujillo had crossed the line. And Trujillo knew it; he had grossly miscalculated.

That's why defectors feel safe in America and not other parts of the world, like the UK. I don't think even someone as nasty as Vladimir Putin would dare poison people on US soil with Novichok...

Of note: It's interesting that several of the men in the background are wearing sunglasses. Those were considered highly symbolic of the Trujillo Regime in its final years. Yes, wearing dark sunglasses. These men at that time would most likely have been SIM agents or caliés. I'm really surprised at how tone deaf Ramfis Domínguez Trujillo is. How can he not be aware of the symbolism?

What a shocker, as if we didn't know they often act alone to change historical events as rogue political agents.

Where have we heard that before? :cheeky:

So releasing the files would cause precedent in current cases? That would be a shot across the bow for the 2018 Deep State. Imagine if ALL such files are released...

Putin having Russian exiles murdered in the UK--one with radioactive polonium and failing to kill others with a weapons grade chemical agent, Novichok. Now the Saudis butcher a dissident journalist alive in Turkey. Murdering your enemies on foreign soil is not a good idea. It brings down regimes. Some people will never learn...

What does this has to do with Galindez?

After all, he died in the DR. Its still debatable if Trujillo himself ordered his assassination. Quite often Trujillo wasn´t aware of many assassinations until after the fact, but he was always blamed for them. That´s what happened with the communists that invaded through Constanza. Trujillo had actually given instructions for the invaders to be captured alive and kept alive. It was after the fact that he noticed most were killed on the spot. Who gave the order to kill them? His son Ramfis going against the wishes of his own father solely because he thought they invaded with the intention to kill his father. In the end, popular opinion put the blame on Trujillo senior, as always.

He died on Dominican soil, but he was kidnapped on American soil. He might as well have been killed there. The point is that a serious crime was committed on US soil.

Galindez was brought before Trujillo at his country estate, and after being berated by El Jefe, he was taken away and murdered on Trujillo's orders--allegedly.

It remains murky, but I get the impression that the American government might have given tacit approval. The Chilean intelligence services supposedly, maybe, might have been working with a CIA backed group. If the American government did not respond, it was most likely a question of realpolitik. America in the 1970s was still fighting The Cold War.

Don't believe that governments can carrying out assassinations on US soil without serious repercussions.

This I do agree with. This act of disobedience was the straw that broke the camel's back. Trujillo had ordered that the rebels not be killed, but Ramfis had them tortured and killed anyway. When Trujillo found out, he privately decided to make his younger son Radhames his heir (unbeknownst the Ramfis).

What do these other murders have to do with Galindez? They're all examples of high profile murders against exiles carried out on foreign soil--thus drawing more attention and putting foreign governments in a bad position. The fall out from these crimes is still ongoing.
