Czar Nicholas II of Russia

In 1908, Clarence Darrow and others worked to prevent the extradition of Christian Ansoff Rudowitz to Russia to face murder and other charges. While arguing before United States Commissioner Mark A. Foote, Darrow said "Czar Nicholas II is plotting to reach the hand of despotism into the United States and drag back, no man knows how many, political offenders of Russia."
