Witnesses say Pellicano threatened them (Hillary's Hitman Pelican Needs a Pardon)

Two women who were alleged targets of the private eye's investigations say they received calls warning them to remain silent.

In another day of dramatic courtroom confrontations, an actress told a federal jury Wednesday that she received a terrifying telephone call threatening her son shortly after she spoke with the FBI about its wiretapping investigation of private eye Anthony Pellicano.

Testifying as a government witness, Linda Doucett said an anonymous male caller in November 2003 warned her to remain silent after she had been interviewed by authorities about their probe of Pellicano for alleged wiretapping and other crimes on behalf of rich and famous clients.

Doucett testified that the threatening call came shortly after she had spoken to then-FBI Agent Stan Ornellas, the lead investigator in the Pellicano case, and had been contacted by a Los Angeles Times reporter about the government's inquiry.

"That night, I got a phone call," Doucett said, recalling how a man with a voice she did not recognize told her: "If you talk to your friend Stan or the press, you won't be seeing your child anymore."

"Hillary's secret police tend to be a tight-lipped bunch, professionally skilled at keeping a low profile. However, we know more about Anthony "The Pelican" Pellicano than about most Hillary operatives, thanks to his boastfulness and taste for the limelight. Pellicano's violent career as a private investigator reveals much about the sorts of qualifications Hillary sought in her Shadow Team.

In the January 1992 issue of GQ magazine, Pellicano boasted of the dirty work he had performed for his clients, including blackmail and physical assault. He claimed to have beaten one of his client's enemies with a baseball bat. "I'm an expert with a knife," said Pellicano. "I can shred your face with a knife."

FBI agents raided Pellicano's West Hollywood office on Nov. 22, 2002, and arrested him on federal weapons charges. In his office, they found gold, jewelry, and about $200,000 in cash - most of it bundled in $10,000 wrappers - thousands of pages of transcripts of illegal wiretaps; two handguns; and various explosive devices stored in safes, including two live hand grenades and a pile of C4 plastic explosive, complete with blasting cap and detonation cord."

Needless to say, the LAT does not connect the well known dots between Pellicano and the clintons.

Numerous people in the FBI were involved with the clintons in a variety of corrupt and illegal activities. Giving hillary the FBI files was only part of it.

Bill made sure to promote the ones who were willing to work with him.

Needless to say, the clintons have a LOT of blackmail material they can use against the top people in the FBI. They not only handed over 900 FBI files to hillary, they handed over many more that were not mentioned. And they are continuing to do so. Until the clintons are safely dead and gone, they will basically own the FBI, in the same way that a Mafia capo owns his soldiers.

Certainly Bush has done nothing to rectify that sorry mess.

"The Pelican" was one of a number of thugs on the payrolls of both Hillary and The Democrat National Committee.

Some of my friends got wiretapped by Pellicano or Jack Paladino during the Paula Jones lawsuit, in a “Jane Doe”-related matter. I’ll be glad to see these thugs sent to prison.
