"The CIA sent Bob Levinson to Iran to do an investigation on its behalf," said David McGee, a family lawyer and spokesperson deeply involved in efforts to get Levinson released.
Lady Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern), daughter of Martha and Isidore Levinson, dry goods multi millionaire from Cincinnati, is the wife of Robert Crawley and mother of Mary, Edith and Sybil.
