    FBI Director Christopher Wray told the federal surveillance court in a letter Friday that he “deeply regrets” the bureau’s many errors in the process to obtain surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. “The FBI has the utmost respect for this Court, and deeply regrets the errors and omissions identified by the OIG,” Wray wrote in a letter to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). A judge on the FISC ordered the FBI on Dec. 17 to respond by Friday with a roadmap on how the bureau plans to address the problems identified in a Justice Department inspector...

    Kent State shootings victim: Tape reveals order to fire Created: 4/30/2007 5:27:28 AM Updated:4/30/2007 5:27:41 AM COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A man who was shot when National Guard troops opened fire on anti-war protesters at Kent State University 37 years ago says the case should be reopened. Alan Canfora says an audio recording taken by a fellow student on May 4, 1970, reveals an order to fire. Four students were killed and 13 wounded. The FBI investigated whether an order had been given to fire, and said it could only speculate. One theory was that a guardsman panicked or fired...
  • Libby trial update [FBI interviewer's notes inaccurate and omit important parts of Libby testimony]

    The Libby trial continues today with FBI agent Bond acknowledging that her notes are inaccurate and that the summary of the second interview prepared by her supervisor Eckenrode is substantially at odds with her notes. She also said that while Libby said he "couldn't recall" a key conversation, for example, Eckenrode reported that Libby "adamantly denied "it occurred. Imagine how confusing it must have been to be confronted in the grand jury with these notes falsely describing the interviews and having no means to challenge them! Significantly, Agent Bond confirms: Libby testified that on 9/30/03, Colin Powell told him that...

    BOSTON -- Two Boston men spent 30 years in prison for an underworld slaying they did not commit after a judge ruled that the FBI withheld evidence that would have cleared the pair to protect a mob hit man who was serving as an informant. Now, in a trial that opened Thursday, those men and the families of two others who were wrongfully convicted are seeking damages from the government that could total more than $100 million. Joseph ''The Animal'' Barboza was a known mob assassin responsible for numerous hits during Boston's gangland wars of the 1960s. He was also...

    When small-time hoodlum Edward "Teddy" Deegan was gunned down in a Chelsea alley on March 12, 1965, the FBI had a pretty good idea who did it. [...] But the case took a dramatically different turn when the FBI recruited Barboza to testify in a series of Mafia-related trials under a deal that gave him leniency for his own crimes. He admitted his role in Deegan's slaying and implicated others -- but not Flemmi -- leading to the wrongful convictions of four men who spent decades in prison before they were exonerated. In a lawsuit that could cost the government...

    When R. Lindley DeVecchio, a 65-year-old retired F.B.I. supervisor, stood up in a courtroom in Brooklyn yesterday to face charges that he had helped his prized Mafia informant commit four murders, the tension was clear. On one side of the gallery, filling roughly two-thirds of the blond wood benches, were nearly four dozen mostly gray-haired men in dark-colored suits. Retired F.B.I. agents who had been Mr. DeVecchio's colleagues, they were now his supporters. [snip] In 1987, prosecutors said, Mr. DeVecchio provided information that led to the killing of a Colombo soldier, Joseph DeDomenico. The agent told Mr. Scarpa that Mr....

    NEW YORK (AP) - A retired FBI agent was indicted on murder charges Thursday for allegedly taking bribes from a mobster to provide inside information that led to the underworld slayings of four people in Brooklyn. R. Lindley DeVecchio, 65, was arrested in a case of ``confidential leaks, payoffs and death'' dating back two decades, District Attorney Charles Hynes said. DeVecchio and two alleged triggermen awaited arraignment as other retired FBI agents came to his defense. ``We all know Lin, and we all know he's not capable of doing these kinds of things,'' James Kossler, a former supervisor with the...

    Kenneth Trentadue was no angel. In the 1980s, he did time for robbing banks. But in a strange twist, the circumstances behind his violent death 10 years ago in prison are playing out in federal court in a case that hints at a wider conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing.Recently released documents unearthed because of a lawsuit against the FBI suggest that the long-standing allegations may not be so far-fetched. The lawsuit, brought by Trentadue’s brother, Jesse, has convinced a federal judge in Salt Lake City to order the FBI to produce hundreds of sealed documents in recent months, and...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - An FBI agent accused of lying about two trips to Las Vegas that were paid for by an informant pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor and agreed to resign from the bureau. Erik Blowers, once the chief legal counsel and ethics adviser for the FBI office in Charlotte, pleaded guilty to making a false report. Blowers, 40, originally faced a felony charge of making a false statement for failing to report thousands of dollars in gifts and travel expenses paid for by homebuilder David Simonini. The FBI agent took two trips to Las Vegas in 2000 with...

    BOSTON — The FBI said Thursday it has confirmed a sighting of fugitive mobster James "Whitey" Bulger that occurred in early 2003, but would not say where or exactly when he was seen. The information was released days before the ninth anniversary of the disappearance of Bulger, a former FBI informant now on the bureau's Ten Most Wanted List. Bulger, 74, disappeared from the Boston area on Jan. 5, 1995, just before his indictment on charges of racketeering, extortion and drug trafficking. Bulger, leader of Boston's Winter Hill Gang, is accused of involvement in 21 homicides. The agency received 160...
