…with regard to the Moscow incident. Monica Cramer worked with IBTCI in Moscow at the time. She remembers Townsel coming to Moscow on a vacation (Townsel was usually working in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan). Cramer writes in her letter to the foreign relations committee that she had lunch with Townsel:
During the lunch, I remember Ms. Townsel complaining about conditions on the Kyrgyz project as well as the support she was receiving from IBTCI though no mention was made of Mr. Bolton attacking her.
Mr. Bolton could have met Ms. Townsel in the IBTCI office though I have no recollection of any specific encounter between Mr. Bolton and Ms. Townsel. I do remember that when Mr. Bolton and I were not attending meetings, he spent the majority of his time in his room, writing the Healthy Russia document. If Mr. Bolton had done any of the things Ms. Townsel has accused him of, those of us in the IBTCI office would have known about it due to the close quarters in which we worked. I personally have no memory of any such incident occurring during my stay in Moscow nor would I have forgotten it if it had occurred.
We have posted the entire letter, so you can make of it what you will.
