Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.
Sometime in 1949, the British Foreign Office starts investigating Robert Maxwell’s ties to the Soviet Union’s KGB intelligence agency.
The information comes from a report by Digby Ackland, a member of the Foreign Office’s Information Research Department (IRD).
An IRD file on Maxwell uncovered years later states that he is “a thoroughly bad character and almost certainly financed by Russia.”
By 1950, Robert Maxwell has worked in the Czechoslovak Army, the British Army, the British Foreign Office, the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Israel’s Mossad, and likely the KGB.
