In the 1930s, Violet became involved with the Comite Secret pour l’Action Revolutionaire (a "far-right political cult modeled on a Freemasonic movement, complete with Masonic-style rites and rituals... a predecessor of Licio Gelli's P-2" led by Eugene Deloncle and Jean Filliol).[2]

Violet worked for the SDECE, and was an influential behind-the-scenes actor in the post World War II Europe, and worked with Opus Dei. Jean Violet started Le Cercle in the 1950s around its titular leader, Antoine Pinay.

He was involved in the Great Oil Sniffer Hoax.[3]
