See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

That Walter Rathenau shortly before his assasination had completed plans in collusion with persons in London and Berlin for the establishment of a dictatorship of Germany modeled after that of Russia was charged at the trial of the monarchist plotters now going on here.

The charge was made by Fuchs, chief of the monarchists on trial who admitted that he got the report from a French agent named Richart. Where Richart got the report, he did not say.

The charge that Hitler, the anti-Semitic Fascisti leader had been in constant touch with Mussolini, the Fascisti leader of Italy, was also made at the trial.
