PART 3 of 3

[Note: Some legal documents referenced in the following articles may be viewed here.]
The word “cover-up” always involves a conspiracy of a number of government employees who in some way violate their sworn duty to uphold the law. Our law of our land says government must prosecute illegal activity – especially illegal government activity. If someone has not implemented orders given by President Obama to give Lee Wanta access to his own money, a cover-up or conspiracy of some kind has occurred. The facts are clear.
It is difficult to write anything about Ambassador Lee/Leo Emil Wanta because what he did and what has been done to him by the government he served with integrity and more loyalty than it deserves includes a massive amount of detailed information.
Lee Wanta attempted to do precisely what U.S. District Court Judge Gerald Bruce Lee instructed in his April 15, 2003 Order and Memorandum of Opinion. The Judge directed Ambassador Leo E. Wanta to pursue liquidation of his corporations, recovery of their financial assets, and pay all required taxes in accordance with the law, making him Trustor of the funds.
As part of that process, in May 2006, Lee Wanta transferred $4.5 trillion to the Bank of America in Richmond, VA from the Bank of China after he liquidated several of his Article 18 Section 6 companies. The money disappeared into a dark hole at the Treasury Department (via the Federal Reserve System).
As a result of this unlawful act, Ambassador Wanta (using all of his also-known-as names), as Petitioner, filed a Writ of Mandamus, Civil Action number 1-07 CV 609 against Henry M. Paulson, Jr., Secretary, Robert M. Kimmitt, Deputy Secretary, and James R. Wilkinson, Chief of Staff, United States Treasury Department. Also named in the action were Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, Alberto R. Gonzales, Attorney General, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.
Mandamus is a rather extraordinary legal procedure reserved for special situations. Its primary precondition is that a government agency or official has acted (or failed to act) in disregard of a clear legal duty and no conventional means are available to solve the problem.
Ambassador Wanta attempted to access the $4.5 trillion transferred to his account at Bank of America through international bank monetary systems. The remitting bank was the People’s Bank of the People’s Republic of China (the Chinese central bank). People’s Bank clearly designated that the transferred funds were for the sole and exclusive use and benefit of the Petitioner (Lee/Leo E. Wanta). As you read Ambassador Wanta’s statement, below, bear in mind another legal document filed with the court that day by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond which says:
"FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF RICHMOND
"Pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6), Fed.R.Civ.P., Respondent Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (‘FRB Richmond’) moves to dismiss the Petition for Writ of Mandamus and Other Extraordinary Relief (the ‘Petition’). The grounds of this Motion, as amplified in the attached Brief, are as follow.
"For the purposes of this Motion only, all well pleaded facts will be taken as true."
In other words, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond accepted as true the statements made by Lee Wanta in his Writ of Mandamus. Here is Ambassador Wanta’s sworn Affidavit – a part of the Writ of Mandamus the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond accepts as truthful:
“The undersigned, being fully advised by counsel of the seriousness of the claim of making false statements to a Court and being fully apprised of the consequences for committing perjury (and the associated penalties), hereby make the following statements concerning the petition for Writ of Mandamus being filed on my behalf, by my counsel, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia:
“1. I am more than twenty-one years of age and I am a citizen of the United States of America.
“2. For an extended period of time I am functioning as a representative, investigator, contract employee and/or facilitator of one or more assignments that were either executed and/or performed at the direction and/or under the supervision of one or more persons and/or agencies that were accountable to the Executive Offices of the United States Government.
“3. During most recent three to five years I have been attempting to coordinate the repatriating of substantive financial resources from foreign locations to the United States and cause the tax payments owed on the patriated funds to be paid to the United States Treasury. I have substantially completed the stated objective task with the assistance of one or more foreign sources.
“4. I have read the entirety of the Petition for Writ of Mandamus prepared by my attorneys. I confirm that I have personally directed communications with the banks, security firms, the United States Department of the Treasury (including one or more individual parties associated with the Treasury that are named as Respondents) and other entities mentioned in the Petition.
“5. I have personally confirmed that the financial assets sent by the People's Republic of China were received by Bank of America in Richmond, Virginia and that upon best information and belief the subject financial assets were "tagged" in my name and transmittal instructions by the People's Republic of China directed that the same be paid to me without offset or delay.
“6. I have been personally advised by agents and/or contract regulation compliance workers, that are accountable to the United States Department of the Treasury, that release of funds sent by the People's Republic of China for payment to me is being restricted and/or blocked by one or more parties.
“7. The exact party and/or parties that are restricting and/or blocking payment of financial assets to my designated accounts is not known absolutely.
“8. Upon best information and belief the United States Department of the Treasury has the power and authority to direct release of the funds for my unrestricted use.
“9. Despite continued demand for release of financial assets (that were transmitted by the People's Republic of China) for payment to me personally the demands are ignored and are not rebuked by any responsive communication.
“10. I have been personally informed by parties, that have the authority to release the block on funds leveraged against recipient banking accounts established in my name, that directives have been received from known and unknown parties that have the effect of negating my ability to have free and unrestricted access to financial assets that are "tagged" solely and exclusively in my name.
“IN WITNESS HEREOF I am causing the above set forth affidavit to be notarized and sworn with full recognition of the penalty of perjury this 11th day of June 2007.
“Lee E. Wanta, Leo E. Wanta and Ambassador Leo E. Wanta”
These statements contained in Lee Wanta’s Writ of Mandamus are part of what the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond accepted as truth. To read the entire Writ, go here.
How does Lee want to use his $4.5 trillion? He wants to immediately create a minimum of two million jobs by building a high-speed rail system consisting of 12 to 14 rail corridors. There will be no tax dollars required. He’ll build it with his money. In the past, he has offered to buy Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae along with a few other financial disasters that have caused America’s economy to begin its descent into oblivion. I have copies of the offers made.

How many American citizens are paying the price in lost homes and no jobs because government conspiracists prefer having access to the Wanta funds? They can’t just take the money because he is the sole beneficiary of his own personal funds. But they can manipulate his monetary funds. They can use it as leverage to make them money. Perhaps that’s what has been happening since May of 2006.
It is time to uphold the law and prosecute the offenders. It is past time.
