Corrupt Bad Cop Robert Mueller never had time to answer questions related to the Whitey Bulger case – a case where Mueller’s team in the 1980’s befriended Boston gangster Whitey Bulger and framed four innocent men of murder.
Judge Judy tonight noted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller never had time to answer questions related to his work with gangster Whitey Bulger but he expects the President to find time to talk to him about the fake Russia collusion story –
Mueller aligned himself and the his FBI in the 1980’s with notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, later portrayed by actor Johnny Depp in the movie “Black Mass”, (see trailor below) –
Sara Carter discussed Mueller and his compatriot Andrew Weissmann, whom Mueller invited to be on his fraudulent Trump-Russia conspiracy team. Carter notes the following about Mueller and Weissman and their shady pasts with mob related cases –
Weissmann’s involvement in the Colombo case in the 1990s was the first of many cases that would draw criticism from his peers but this case, in particular, would be one of the FBI’s biggest blunders. As I outlined last month, Judge Charles P. Sifton reprimanded Weissmann for withholding evidence from the defense, as previously reported. Weissmann allowed a corrupt FBI agent to testify against the defendants in the case despite having knowledge that the agent was under investigation. The agent had a nefarious relationship with a reputed underboss of the Colombo crime family, who was accused later of numerous murders, court records reveal.
Mueller had similar troubles during the 1980s in Boston when he was Acting U.S. Attorney from 1986 through 1987. Under Mueller’s watch in Boston, another one of the FBI’s most scandalous cases occurred. At the time, an FBI agent by the name of John Connolly, who is now in prison for murder-related charges, had been the handler for James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. Bulger, who Connolly aided in escaping FBI custody in the 90s, was a notorious mobster and murderer who had been working as a confidential informant for the FBI against other crime syndicates in the Boston area. Mueller, who oversaw the FBI during his time there, was criticized by the media and congressional members for how the situation in Boston was handled. Bulger, who committed numerous murders during his time as an informant, disappeared for more than 16 years until he was finally captured in California in 2011; by that time Mueller was director of the FBI.
Carter summarized Mueller’s actions with Bulger –
- James ‘Whitey’ Bulger: a notorious gangster and murderer from Boston, who was also a long time confidential informant of the FBI.
- During the 1980s, Mueller served as an assistant US attorney and then as the acting US attorney in Boston. The FBI was under his supervision during the time Bulger was an informant.
- Former FBI Special Agent John Connolly, who is now in prison for racketeering and murder-related charges, had been the handler for James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. He allegedly tipped off Bulger that one of his business associates was going to testify against him. Bulger had his associate murdered.
- Bulger was a confidential informant for the FBI since 1975 and escaped arrest by the FBI in the 90s after his FBI handler informed Bulger an arrest was imminent. He was on the run for 16 years and captured in 2011. Mueller was then director of the FBI.
- In 1965 four men were convicted of a murder that the FBI later learned they did not commit. Three of the men faced death sentences.
- The FBI had learned during the time Bulger was an informant that the men did not commit the murders. The men served decades in prison and two of them died in prison.
- A jury trial revealed that the FBI had known the men were innocent but withheld the evidence from state law enforcement authorities.
- In 2007, a jury awarded more than $101 million in damages to the surviving men and their families.
- However, during the time the men were in prison Mueller wrote multiple letters to the parole and pardons board opposing clemency for the four men. Mueller never answered questions as to what he knew about the case or if he was aware of the men’s innocence, as reported extensively by Kevin Cullen, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer with the Boston Globe.
- In 2013, Bulger went on trial for 32 counts of racketeering, money laundering and extortion. He was also indicted on weapons charges and 19 counts of murder.
Judge Janine rightly points out Mueller’s crooked past. He never should have been FBI Director and he never should have been assigned to the position of Special Counsel in the fake Russia collusion investigation. Lock Them Up!
