Millions Donated for Veterans Were Funneled Instead into Politics, Jetting a Thief Wanted for Espionage to the White House and Exposing Weaknesses in our National Security

Donations came in $10 and $20 increments from Americans across the country wanting to help veterans.  But the millions went to politics and exposed a gaping hole in national security when the group’s director – an imposter wanted for espionage – was invited into the White House. A true story of how politics trumps national security.

John Donald Cody started his career with a Harvard Law School  degree and became an Army Military Intelligence Officer with Top Secret clearance. He disappeared in 1984 after stealing $100,000 from clients. The FBI would later join in the hunt for him wanting to question him for espionage. He would remain a wanted man for more than two decades before authorities could put Cody behind bars.  While on the lam, Cody reinvented himself as Bobby Thompson, a former Navy commander said to be helping veterans. Instead, he used the money to cozy up to our nation's elite politicians. His donations got him unparrelled access and even got him welcomed into the White House as the imposter,. His Accomplishments expose gaping holes in our nation's security and in the Country's regulation of charities.
