WASHINGTON. Do you remember Special Agent John Connolly Jr.? He’s the man who made James “Whitey” Bulger, notorious head of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang, a confidential informant for the FBI. But it turned out Connolly was the one working for Bulger, not the other way around.
He and fellow FBI Special Agent John Morris, we now know, were hit men for Bulger’s gang. Oh, and Morris once served as director of the FBI’s training facility at Quantico, VA.
Today, Connolly sits in a 10’ x 11’ prison cell in a Florida maximum-security facility, convicted of racketeering and murder. The guy Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Stanford Blake said had “crossed over to the dark side.”
It’s a bird, it’s a plane…
The hero who exposed the corruption in the FBI’s Boston field office, bringing down its criminal agents, was Special Prosecutor John Durham, who serves today as a US Attorney in Connecticut.
“Nobody in this country is above the law, an FBI agent or otherwise,” Durham said to reporters after Connolly’s conviction.
Barr gets his Eliot Ness
Attorney General William Barr has tapped Durham to head the investigation into the origins of the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. And that will bring Durham in contact with a corrupt FBI once again. This time exposing its connection to British MI6 agent Christopher Steele.
And the FBI’s use of Steele’s discredited anti-Trump dossier as a means to secure fraudulent FISA court warrants to spy on Trump campaign officials.
Durham is also likely to investigate the FBI’s selective leaks to its friends in the Democrat-friendly fake-news media. The same mainstream minions that continue to report the Russia hoax dossier as though it has not been utterly refuted.
A contempt for good
Nonetheless, Congressional Democrats have declared Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress for turning the Trump/Russia collusion narrative on its head. That reversal is what Democratic lawmakers have labeled a “constitutional crisis.”
Quick before they kill again
John Durham’s inquiry into the weaponization of the FBI and other Deep State agencies against the 2016 Republican presidential campaign coincides nicely with that of Inspector General for the Justice Department, Michael Horowitz.
His investigation into leaks by fired FBI Director James Comey of classified information to The New York Times may send the former G-Man behind bars – to join jailbird and disgraced FBI Agent John Connolly.
It may be time for Congress to disband a corrupt and dangerous FBI before it does to the American republic what Connolly did to Whitey Bulger’s enemies.
