Skip to comments.How do Hannity’s attempts to link Mueller to ‘Whitey’ Bulger hold up?

Was Mueller among the prosecutors who wrote letters to the Massachusetts parole board opposing the release of the four before evidence emerged that they had been framed?
No, according to Gertner and Limones attorney, Juliane Balliro, who scoured copies of the parole board records for the four men. There were no letters from Mueller in the files and his signature never appeared on anything I ever saw or can recall, Balliro said.
Former Massachusetts Parole Board member Michael Albano, who complained of intimidation and retaliation by the FBI after he voted in favor of commutation for Limone in 1983, said Thursday that hes convinced that at one time he saw a letter from Mueller, written in the 1980s, opposing the release of one of the four men.
A 2011 column by the Globes Kevin Cullen has been cited in recent media reports that attempt to link Mueller to the wrongfully imprisoned men. At the time, Cullen said Mueller wrote letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the men. But, in a column Friday, Cullen said he heard that from Albano but did not see any letters from Mueller.

The condemned men won $100MM in a lawsuit against the government, but there is some dispute whether Mueller wrote letters to the parole board to keep the men in prison. Some say yes but the Judge on the prisoner lawsuit says no. It is a Clintonesque farcical escape. Because Mueller's name is not on a letter forbidding parole, that means he is completely innocent of this horrendous miscarriage of justice. That Mueller had no knowledge of what had gone on in his office, or who Whitey Bulger was, or what exculpatory evidence sat in their files that they refused to the defense. I am not buying it. Of course he knew, he couldn't be that stupid. So he let innocent men rot on death row. Two of them died in prison, and the remaining two were freed.
He is corrupt.
Here’s a Boston columnist’s take on the issue.
Hannity reports what was previously reported in her own paper, and it’s “Hannitys attempts to link Mueller to Whitey Bulger”? So why was the Globe trying to discredit Mueller in 2011?
Most definitely totally corrupt. The concept of Mueller not knowing what exactly is going on in such a high profile case it ludicrous beyond farcical belief. If he did not he is incompetent. Mueller is many things and most not noble nor legal, He is not incompetent.
The Boston Globe as “fact checker”? Good God...you can’t make this stuff up!
It's almost as if Howie Carr lacks faith in his fellow man.
Both papers were in agreement that the men were innocent, two died in prison, and the survivors received a settlement. But neither source could find any evidence of a letter written by Mueller.
As I thought more about the case, I came to the conclusion that you did. If he knew the men were innocent, he had a moral duty to come forward and speak up on behalf of innocent people being condemned. And I can't see how he could NOT have known about their innocence.
It brings out a flaw in our legal system morally. How many have been condemned, some to death, and the defense attorney and possibly others involved knew otherwise but kept silent because that's the way a trial works.
Well, between the Kennedys, Bulgers, imprisoned fmr FBI agent John “Cannoli”, ... what can one expect?
It’s the seriesness of the charge anyway.
Didn’t he screw up the case against Hell’s Angels in California?
Sunday on New York AM 970 radio's "The Cats Roundtable," Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz ripped special counsel Robert Mueller, calling him "a zealot."
"I think Mueller is a zealot," Dershowitz told host John Catsimatidis. "I don't think he's partisan. I don't think he cares whether he hurts Democrats or Republicans, but he's a [non]-partisan and a zealot. Look, he's the guy who kept four innocent people in prison for many years in order to protect the cover of Whitey Bulger as an FBI informer[.] ... Those of us in Boston don't have such a high regard for Mueller because we remember this story. The government had to pay out tens of millions of dollars because Whitey Bulger, a notorious mass murderer, became a government informer against the mafia."
"[T]hese four people – two of them died in jail, and two of them spent long, long periods of time in jail. And that's regarded in Boston as one of the great scandals of modern judicial history. And Mueller was right at the center of it," he recalled.
As investigative journalist Sara Carter notes, Mueller was not above punishing the innocent and withholding exculpatory evidence to achieve his ends, which in his view justified any means:
Journalist Kevin Cullen wrote extensively about the FBI's involvement with Bulger and raised concerns about the old case in a 2011 article in Boston.com after Obama asked Congress to make an exception to allow Mueller to stay on two extra years beyond the mandated 10-year limit as FBI director.
Cullen said in his story that Mueller who was first an assistant US attorney, "then as the acting US attorney in Boston" had written "letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies[.] ...
In 2001, those four men, who were convicted in 1965 of Teddy Deegan's murder were exonerated by the courts. It was discovered that the FBI withheld evidence from the court to protect their informant that would have cleared the men, according to reports.
Mueller's record of thuggery; dishonesty; and, yes, criminality under the cover of law shows a record that warrants exposure, not defense, and prosecution, not protection. The only thing that can be said about his persecution of Donald Trump is that it is consistent with his less than stellar past, which resembles more the actions of a mob boss than a seeker of truth and justice.
I don’t get to listen to Hannity all the time, but a few days here lately, while categorizing the crimes of the Obama/Hillary cabal in the Justice Department, he will invariably mention the bogus Steele document used “to issue a FICA warrant against Carter Page, a private citizen.”
Does Hannity not know that Page was merely a loss leader for the Obama spies to exploit to work their way up the chain of command to the Trump tower? The Obama spies cared nothing at all for Page; the warrant merely gave them the means to circle out and up to the Trump inner circle.
Does anyone know how to contact Hannity and explain that to him?
Took the words out of my mouth. Don’t forget Mumbles Menino. Boston is about as crooked as it gets (sorry Chicago and Philly).
FICA is an acronym for “Federal Insurance Contributions Act.” FICA tax is the money that is taken out of workers’ paychecks to pay older Americans their Social Security retirement and Medicare (Hospital Insurance) benefits. It is a mandatory payroll deduction.
It’s FISA warrant,not FICA warrant.
Obviously was in a hurry - typo, first typo in world history.
“Obviously was in a hurry - typo, first typo in world history.”
$101 Million. To some of us outside the Swamp, a cool million is a lot of money.
Add $6 Million to persecuted Anthrax suspect.
Mueller is good at spending our money.
Very solid. Mueller and Weissman protected him by knowingly keeping innocent people imprisoned.
