After Jack Abramoff was released from prison in 2010, he began pitching himself as a self-styled political reformer looking to tell the truth about a system he illegally exploited for personal gain.

Now the disgraced D.C. lobbyist is back and immersed in a stranger-than-fiction project with an African strongman, controversial Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and “friends in Europe” in his telling, to defeat Islamic terrorists.

The project, as described by Abramoff and Rohrabacher in separate interviews with POLITICO, looks like a reprise of the lobbyist’s previous life of wheeling and dealing in Washington and capitals around the world.

Abramoff agreed to act as a liaison between his European friends whom he declined to name, the president of the Republic of Congo, and Rohrabacher to try to establish a coalition of African states to defeat the terrorist group Boko Haram. Abramoff’s friends — who Abramoff said he believes have financial investments in Congo — were in talks with the country’s controversial president, Denis Sassou Nguesso, to try to enlist the United States to support the coalition.
