Kyle âDustyâ Foggo and Brent Wilkes head to federal court today where they will likely plead not guilty to new conspiracy and money laundering charges.
Indictments against the pair came Friday that expand the charges filed against them in February.
In addition to the old charges, in the new indictment, Foggo, former executive director of the CIA, is accused of slipping his lifelong friend, Wilkes, a $132 million federal contract to âprovide commercial cover for CIA air operations.â
You can see the portion of Foggoâs indictment describing the scam here.
The indictment says Wilkes was patently unqualified to handle the task, seeing that he had no prior air-support experience.
How, then, did Wilkes get such a contract?
According to the indictment, Foggo had been funneling Wilkes classified government documents, despite Wilkesâ lack of security authorization, that seemed to prepare him for the pitch.
In exchange for Foggoâs cooperation, Wilkes took his pal on vacation to exotic locations like Hawaii and Scotland, offered Foggo rides in a private jet and treated him to fancy dinners at such restaurants as the Capital Grille (which recently won Consumer Reportsâ award for the best hamburger in America). Judging by the $344.78 bill rang up by Foggo, he probably ordered something else.
