John P. Krill, Jr., Esq.
Dear Mr. Krill:
I am making an educated guess at your email address, and sending the same message via fax to the Harrisburg number at your listing on the firm website. I also am reinforcing this message by phone.
As you probably know, The Day of New London, Connecticut, has published the complete December 1, 1989, memo from Linda McMahon to Pat Patterson. That document, in redacted form, had been part of the court record in the 1994 steroid trial. According to the newly unredacted paragraph, you were tipped to the criminal investigation of Dr. Zahorian by a government official at what the memo calls “a fundraiser.”
The Day’s Ted Mann goes on to report that Ms. McMahon’s campaign and WWE say that the person who tipped you was James West of the U.S. Attorney’s office. Mr. West denies this to The Day and adds that he would have been prevented by policy from attending a political fundraiser. (Ms. McMahon’s memo, it should be noted, said “fundraiser,” not “political fundraiser.”)
Please consider sharing with my blog readers defining details of your 1989 contact with Mr. West. Exactly where and when did Mr. West inform you that Dr. Zahorian was under investigation?
I will post the text of this query, and your response, around noon Eastern time tomorrow, Wednesday the 14th.
