Which of the "Chosen Ones" Am I? #9

 Spoiler Alert: Clicking on the links may reveal the Chosen One. Links provided for background purposes.


I was born in March of 1858 to German Jews who emigrated to the United States from Bavaria. I received an undergraduate law degree from Colombia Law School in 1878.  By 1895 I partnered with three other attorneys to form what was to become a leading New York City Law firm. I became famous as a corporation attorney and was noted for my connection with celebrated cases. I took an active part in preparing the Federal Reserve Bank law and organized the Bethlehem Steel Company for my friend, Mr. Charles M. Schwab.

As a prominent New York lawyer, I contributed generously to the National Democratic committee that installed President Woodrow Wilson to the White House in 1912. Consequently, I was a welcomed and frequent guest at the White House as the President and  I had met during his presidential campaign.

Although it is not mentioned in any of the encyclopedias, I also came into possession of intimate letters written by President Wilson to the wife of a former colleague professor while he was himself a professor at Princeton University. These letters established the illicit affair that President had with this professor’s wife. Without going into details, President Wilson’s former sweetheart needed $40,000, which President Wilson said he didn’t have. I graciously offered to pay President Wilson’s former sweetheart out of my own pocket in exchange for the promise that Wilson appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court a nominee that I would recommend. Mr. Wilson quickly,  and, I may add,  wisely,  accepted my generous proposal. A few years later, Louis Dembitz Brandeis became the first Talmudist Jew to sit as a Justice on the US Supreme Court.

            With those intimate letters still in my possession, I was later able to also persuade President Wilson, even though he had a few years earlier run on the campaign slogan “He kept us out of war,” to ask the US Congress to declare war on Germany, which they did on April 7, 1917. 
            I guess you could say I was directly responsible for the needless deaths of over 116, 000 and  over 204,000 wounded US soldiers. 

            My financially backing enabled  the deadbeat dad and convicted felon Cyrus I. Scofield’s to publish his Scofield’s Reference Bible, that has been used to deceive millions of Christians since it was first published in 1906.
