The Big Lie: GOP’s Texan Louie Gomert’s Report on Mueller

Someone sent me an email about an item on Brietbart news about a 48 page report written by Louie Gormert (whose he, I wondered) about Robert Mueller. I’d learn he was a Republican member of the House from Texas. Brietbart is one of those right-wing sites that continually dumps raw trash upon the heads of the American people.  Louie tells us that Mueller who served our country bravely and with honor (Bronze Star for valor) in combat in the Vietnam War while with the Marines has a history “of targeting innocent people.” 

You have to wonder why if that was the case how he was approved as FBI director by the US Senate 98 – 0 when he was picked by Republican President George W. Bush in 2001. Or how, after he served for ten years the House and Senate, a mere seven years ago, agreed to legislation to extend his term for another two years. Oh, well. I suppose it is best not to let facts get in the way of a good story put out by a Texas Congressman who said the Tea Party was an answer to his prayers.

Louie in his biography notes his “family attends Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, where Louie has served as a deacon and Sunday school teacher for many years.” So being the upstanding Christian that he professes to be  you would expect that his 48 page report would be somewhat truthful. Curious about his attack on Mueller, I went to an area that I am familiar with and found the following.

“I could not find any explanation online by Mueller as to why he insisted
on keeping the defendants in prison that FBI agents—in the pocket of Whitey Bulger— had framed for a murder they did not commit.”

Those familiar with this blog know that the defendants he refers to are four of the six men kept in prison who were convicted based on the testimony of Joe “the Animal” Barboza who testified they were involved in the 1965 murder of Teddy Deegan. They were indicted in 1967. After conviction, they appealed. In 1970 their appeals were denied. Their convictions upheld.

Louie says the men were framed by FBI agents in the pocket of Whitey Bulger. Perhaps Louie should know that Whitey did not become connected to the FBI until 1974 so it is hard to see how he had FBI agents in his pocket prior to that time. The year Deegan was murdered was the same year Whitey got out of prison where he had been for 9 years. Ah, what are facts?

Louis writes: “I found no explanation as to why he did not bear any responsibility for the $100 million paid to the defendants who were framed by FBI agents under his control. “  If these defendants were framed, and I have serious doubts that some of them were, this was done back in 1967 at the time they were indicted. Mueller at the time had little control over any FBI agents since he had completed college in 1966 and was attending NYU at the time. The next year, 1968, he would be in Vietnam. He would not even get out of law school until 1973. Again, for Louie facts can be a nuisance so best to avoid them.

Mueller did come to Boston in 1982. He was hired by Bill Weld to be head of his criminal division. He stayed until 1987. In 1986 he took over as acting U.S. attorney. It was during this time Whitey Bulger was a Top Echelon Informant for the FBI. There never has been any showing that Mueller knew this nor has there been any showing that Mueller knew of Whitey’s crimes.

So Louie has to cover for this. He writes that if Mueller did not know it he was: “so incredibly blind that he should never be allowed back into any type of criminal case supervision.” What Louie should know is no one, not even the Globe which article he cites which was written in 2011, knew of any sinister relationship between Whitey and the FBI back in the 1980s when Mueller was in town.

Louie goes on in his confused way to state: “In the Whitey Bulger case, the leaks were to organized crime, the Mob.”  It just so happens that the Mob, which has normally been considered as the Mafia, was not getting any leaks. It was taken down precisely because of the relationship between Whitey Bulger and the FBI.

Believe Louie at your peril.

  1. Who says Bulger was a top echelon informant? John Morris, who Bulger BOUGHT information from, including names of individuals who Bulger would go on to kill.
    John Connolly, who Bulger BOUGHT information from, including names of individuals who Bulger would go on to kill. (This makes Morris and Connolly accessories to said murders. Might that be the reason they created a phoney informant file on Bulger?)
    And, of course Freddie Wyshak said Bulger was a top echelon informant —and got his three stooges — Martorano, Flemmi, and Weeks — to trip over one another to “tell all” about Bulger, insuring that they didn’t die in the electric chair or spend their lives behind bars.
    Bob Mueller didn’t know that Bulger was a top echelon informant for the FBI because he wasn’t!
    Folks, you’ve been duped by Morris, Connolly, and Wyshak! They created a lie, weaved a tall tale from it, and carried it on for over 20 years. Maybe it’s time to stop believing the tale and consider the truth.
    Bulger wasn’t an informant. So, how does that change the dialogue?

    1. if Bulger wasn’t an informant why did he tell SAC Sarhatt that he was?

  2. Declan: Occam’s Razor. Sometimes, the simplest conclusion is the best. Gomert is an imbecile. Why do you believe Gomert isn’t an imbecile? We have only his words to judge him by. Do you feel he makes sense?

    1. Khalid is an imbecile. We have only his words to judge him by, after all.

      Hmm, does that make it true?

  3. “Alan Dershowitz also deserves much credit because, with the great weight of his legal eminence, he has joined Victor Davis Hanson and me in seeking an investigation of Mueller’s role in the horrible Deegan-Bulger scandal of the FBI in Boston in the Sixties to Eighties, when innocent men were knowingly prosecuted and condemned for murder, while the real killers were sheltered because of their assistance in attacking the Patriarca crime family in New England. Mueller’s performance in the Anthrax murder tragedy (where an apparently innocent man committed suicide), and in the Uranium One affair (and deputy director Rosenstein’s as well), would be worth a thorough look too.”

    1. Wa-llahi! Is Epstein the connection between Glorious Leader, and, Dersh?

  4. After Matt pointed out the lies this guy spews-with tangible facts-why try to exonerate him for the speculative leaps he proposes? At least you didn’t say Hillary did it first.

    1. Wel, that settles it I guess. Another well thought out, measured response from Khalid.

  5. We applaud all those who served our country honorably. Some of those post-service had abused power and some have made big mistakes.

  6. Louie Gohmert was right on 95% of the issues and he correctly perceives as does Senator Lee and many others, left and right, republican and democrat, that the FEDs are out of control, abusing power. Read all of Mike Lee’s books.

    A sent Louie a copy of my book: “Three Billboards outside Boston, Massachusetts: Prosecute the Persecutors who Abuse Federal Prosecutorial Power.” A hard-hitting work; a short book (@100 pages in average book form); an eye-opener, written less legalistically and more artistically literarily, appealing to wide audience and future generations. Get it at KINDLE and soon in soft/hardcover . .hopefully

    Here’ the letter I sent May 1, 2018 to Congressman Louie Gohmert with the book:

    2243 RAYBURN HOB
    WASHINGTON, DC 20515

    “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.” (A joint statement by Congressmen Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., reported on April 25, 2018.) April 29, 2018
    Dear Congressman Gohmert,
    1. Attached is a copy of a letter sent to Congressman Gowdy. A similar letter went to other members of Congress. Your recent 44 page indictment of Mueller’s FBI’s abuse of power is echoed and corroborated by the findings in this book about federal prosecutorial abuse. Moreover, even the liberal Boston Globe has recently editorialized against federal abuse of power, as has a Boston Federal judge, the ACLU and former federal prosecutors themselves.
    Please note that most of the prosecutorial abuses described in my book “Three Billboards . . .” occurred while Mueller was head of the FBI. He greenlighted or stood by while Federal Prosecutors persecuted two innocent men, H. Paul Rico and John Connolly, as proven by my books and previous books (e.g. “RICO” by two retired FBI agents) and persecuted others.
    Please help expose and rectify this decades-long abuse of Federal Prosecutorial Power.
    2. Please also bear in mind that the FBI in Boston rightfully interfered with some local (state, county and municipal) investigations so as to protect Top Echelon Informants, who were instrumental in taking down the entire New England Mafia. As Joe Pistone “Donny Brasco” has repeatedly stated: John Connolly, who handled a dozen TEIs, was the man most responsible for taking down the entire New England Mafia. John Connolly is an innocent man railroaded by Power Abusing Federal Prosecutors and stigmatized by a corrupt biased local press/media, led by the truth-and-fact distorting Mr. Schadenfreude and Mr. Smear himself, Howie Carr.
    Thank you for your kind consideration of this matter.

    1. Cong. Gohmert is one of those men who you admire for their forthrightness but who drive you up a wall on an issue or two. He always goes all out to a point where it is maddening. Right or wrong he is hyper.

      Btw, thank you for spelling his name right.

  7. You are correct that Louie is wrong on that one issue. The story that four innocents were framed by the FBI is nonsense. Three of them were high ranking Mafia members who were implicated in the Deegan murder. They have wiretaps proving their guilt. That fake story is an invention of the media. 2. Louis is right on the rest of his indictment. Mueller was a decorated soldier as Hitler was a decorated soldier. One’s war record does not determine your future conduct. On the charges against him in the Weldon case, Ted Stevens case, Anthrax case, Scooter Libby case. Martha Stewart matter, Boston Marathon case ( where He, Comey and Obama lied to the public about the Tsarneavs) and the Flynn case the Congressman hits the nail on the head. Massive corruption and abuse by a Deep State Apparatchik. Mueller is the second coming of Mike Nifong. 3. Unfortunately he is unaware of what Mueller did in the Connolly and Rico cases. He withheld exculpatory evidence from Connolly’s lawyers as he did in the Stevens and Flynn cases. He permitted an innocent Rico to be arrested and die in a prison hospital based on Mafia lies. He allowed the Boston DOJ to frame the Probation Officers, Turner and Swartz. Crooked prosecutors should be behind bars not conducting witch hunts. 4. What happens when Mueller tries to subpoena Trump? POTUS will file a motion to quash. SCOTUS will ultimately decide the issue. If they rule against Trump will he take the President Jackson stand and defy the Court . Andrew Jackson came from hearty stock. His mother was Elizabeth Hutchinson Jackson of Carrick Fergus Ireland. Could history repeat itself?

  8. You really believe those men weren’t framed ?

    You think Whitey took down the mob ?

    Mueller initiated the fake prosecution of Lt Nazzaro after he developed information implicating Bulger in the Callahan murder.

    Mueller is no boy scout.
