The New York Post Accuses FBI Director Mueller Of A Cover Up

November 5, 2007

Robert Mueller

The New York Post accused FBI Director Robert Mueller of stonewalling. So what else is new. Mueller views stonewalling as apart of his job, even though the Constitution says otherwise. At little transparency would be nice.

On a side note, there is a seemingly stalled bill in Congress regarding FBI criminal negligence that stemmed from the James Bugler case, where a known criminal that was a paid FBI informant murdered an innocent man.

It happened on the FBI’s watch, due to the fact that the agency didn’t bother to warn the local police of the criminal tendencies of their informant that they were fully aware of. The victim’s family recently won a $3,000,000 award from the courts that condemned the FBI’s conduct.

Washington needs to push that bill through ASAP, as it is clearly needed. Just last week, there was a report that the FBI knew of O.J. Simpson’s conduct in Vegas that culminated into his arrest, three weeks before it happened and didn’t bother to notify the local police once again.

What happened to that interagency communication with law enforcement on every level, domestically and internationally, that the FBI loves to tout on its site? Just for show?

One of these days that famous criminal negligence is going to cause such massive damage that Congress is going to break up the FBI over it. How soon they forget 9/11.

Remember that one? FBI headquarters stonewalling that FBI agent in a field office who wanted to investigate one of the bombers that Osama dropped at the last minute. The cruel would be bomber that knew the 9/11 plot in advance and was attending the flight school in anticipation of that horrible day.

So yea, keep it up with the stonewalling and cover-ups and see if it doesn’t land you in Congress one day facing prison sentences, for an incident that renders the nation irreparable harm as a direct result of your negligence.


November 4, 2007 — As Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes pursued the botched murder case against ex-FBI agent Lindley DeVecchio, he crossed swords with a formidable foe: the U.S. Justice Department.

The FBI paid for the bulk of DeVecchio’s legal bill – estimates for the tab are as high as $400,000 – while allegedly harassing and intimidating members of the DA’s Office.

“They were following me, staking out my house,” said investigator Tommy Dades, who conducted the first interview with key prosecution witness Linda Schiro and testified during the trial.

“They were going around spreading rumors, trying to get people to say things about me, to discredit me,” said Dades. “They got away with a lot of stuff.”

The FBI withheld key documents related to DeVecchio’s work, turning them over at the last minute – and only after Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley quizzed FBI Director Robert Mueller about the stonewalling.

“It was a struggle,” said Hynes’ spokesman, Jerry Schmetterer. “Eventually, we got what we needed, but they made it very difficult.”

The FBI was uncooperative in making available three current agents who testified against DeVecchio, sources at the DA’s Office complained.

DeVecchio is known to have powerful allies at the agency, including the FBI’s chief legal counsel, Valerie Caproni, who helped oversee the former G-man’s work when she was an assistant U.S. attorney in Brooklyn in the late 1980s.

The case against DeVecchio was scuttled when mob moll Schiro’s testimony proved at odds with interviews she gave reporters in 1997. http://www.nypost.com/seven/11042007

NY Judge: FBI Made `deal With the Devil’

NEW YORK (AP) — A former FBI agent accused of conspiring in a mob murder spree has been cleared of the sensational charges, but the vaunted law enforcement agency received a scathing rebuke from a judge in the process.

In a four-page decision that brought the trial of ex-agent Lindley DeVecchio to a stunning end Thursday, state Supreme Court Justice Gustin Reichbach said the FBI violated its own rules by allowing DeVecchio to court a known killer as an informant for well over a decade.

“In the face of the obvious menace posed by organized crime, the FBI was willing … to make a deal with the devil,” Reichbach said in a hushed Brooklyn courtroom. “At best, the FBI engaged in a policy of self-deception, not wanting to know the true facts about this informant-murderer whom they chose to employ.”

The judge also referred to testimony by Linda Schiro, informant Gregory Scarpa’s longtime girlfriend, that Scarpa had assisted the FBI in finding the bodies of slain civil rights workers in Mississippi. In 1964, she said, Scarpa shoved a gun into the mouth of a Mississippi Klansman — a threat that persuaded the man to reveal where the trio’s bodies were buried.

“That a thug like Scarpa would be employed by the federal government to beat witnesses and threaten them at gunpoint to obtain information … is a shocking demonstration of the government’s unacceptable willingness to employ criminality to fight crime,” the judge said. http://ap.google.com/article
