In the same cable, American officials note that Chirieac told them that a prominent representative of a Cluj-based group of politicians, Vasile Dancum, was the brains behind the 2007 operation to suspend the President and that media moguls were actively coordinating with leaders of the opposition for the suspension campaign and Dinu Patriciu, a prominent businessman, wished to kneel Basescu.
