Question for Mueller “What did you know about Whitey Bulger, and when did you know it?”

Having just read a very interesting article over on SaraCarter.com associating Robert Mueller’s apparent involvement with the case surrounding infamous Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, and having recently watched a highly captivating episode on the History Channel’s “KingPin” TV series (episode 1 Whitey Bulger), I was surprised to discover that current special prosecutor Robert Mueller was indeed in Boston during that time as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office. I simply did not know this, and it raised an eyebrow…

It was Mueller’s actions during that time that raised questions about his role in one of the FBI’s most controversial cases (Whitey Bulger) involving the FBI’s use of a confidential informant that led to the convictions of four innocent men, who were sentenced to death for murders they did not commit.

Local law enforcement officials, the media, and some colleagues criticized Mueller for what they believed and the FBI for what they believed was the bureau’s role in covering up for the FBI’s longtime dealings with mobster and informant James “Whitey” Bulger.

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. Of course, Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset.”

Coleen Rowley, a former FBI special agent and former Minneapolis Division legal counsel of the FBI, wrote an Op-Ed in the Huffington Post last year No, Robert Mueller and James Comey Aren’t Heroes stated that when the truth about Bulger “was finally uncovered through intrepid investigative reporting and persistent, honest judges, U.S. taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to the four men framed for murders committed by (the FBI operated) Bulger gang.”

But according to Cullen, Mueller never was asked by Congress, “what did you know about Whitey Bulger, and when did you know it?”

After reading this I thought, is it possible that Mueller helped cover for mobster Whitey Bulger? And if so, what does that indicate about his integrity and credibility?

Makes one wonder…
