those of you unaware of the disgraceful story of the Boston FBI Office
in the latter decades of the 20th Century, here’s a primer:
Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the
former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI
agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from
Some of them were the agents who framed four innocent men for a murder
they did not commit, while taking cash from Stevie Flemmi, whom they
refused to arrest for 30 years while he was, by his own account,
committing 50 murders in four different states.
Yes, the Boston office was the perfect place to train “Special” Agent
emailed his lawyer, and I left a voicemail at a number that may belong
to Strzok in the 703 area code. But no one got back to me, which is too
bad because there were so many questions I wanted to ask the
extinguished G-man about his years in the corrupt FBI office here.
My question for Mueller was, after he hired Strzok for his witch hunt,
did they ever talk about how the FBI allowed the four innocent men to
languish in prison for 35 years?
Mueller’s office declined to comment.
But it makes perfect sense that Mueller would want somebody from the
Boston office to handle his frame-up, I mean investigation. Who knows
more about railroaded people who didn’t commit a crime than the Boston
Just ask former U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Gertner. In 2003, she
threatened to cite Mueller for contempt of court for his refusal to
turn over exculpatory evidence when the wronged men sued. (She
eventually awarded them $107 million.)
“The position the FBI is taking is chilling,” she informed Mueller.
“This Court is not remotely satisfied.”
