Robert Mueller’s anti-Trump witch hunt has proved a lot about his flawed character.
But he has for many years found himself in the center of shady activities.
And the worst thing that Robert Mueller has ever done was just revealed.
Prior to serving as Special Counsel for the Department of Justice, leading the investigation into suspected Russian collusion during the 2016 election, Robert Mueller spent a decade as Director of the FBI.
During his time as FBI Director, Mueller found himself at the center of numerous scandals. Perhaps the most troubling of those scandals had to do with four men wrongfully imprisoned in 1965.
The four men – Louis Greco, Henry Tameleo, Peter Limone, and Joe Salvati – were convicted for murdering a man named Edward “Teddy” Deegan, in an alley during a bank burglary. Deegan, the man they were suspected of murdering, was a well-known criminal at the time.
Just days after the men were wrongfully imprisoned in 1965; FBI agents in Boston knew the identities of the actual murderers. Despite reporting that information to J. Edgar Hoover in Washington, a mob hitman was allowed to falsely testify that the four men had taken part in the murder.
While this was all old and troubling history, the four men faced many years in prison. The lawyer for Louis Greco, who was wrongfully convicted, filed suit to seek a posthumous pardon for his client. Greco was a decorated World War II veteran, who was living in Florida at the time of the murder he was wrongfully convicted of, and later died in prison.
This is when then-FBI Director Robert Mueller came into the picture.
After receiving a damning report, proving the innocence of Greco, and requesting the posthumous pardon, Mueller directed his agents to oppose the pardon, which would have exonerated all four men.
Because of the objection by the FBI, the request was denied in July of 2003, casting doubt on the possibility of the wrongfully convicted men having their reputations cleared. The family of Greco was devastated, and lost hope in the possibility of having their innocent family member’s name cleared.
It took over ten years after the initial denial for the four men to finally be pardoned, and it was with no help from the FBI. Before leaving office, then-Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick chose to pardon the four men in 2014. Along with a pardon, the four men, or their estates were awarded $102 million.
“Any stigma and disgrace is hereby removed,” the governor stated at the time of the pardon.
Even after being dead for 19 years, Greco finally had his name cleared. But despite the fact that he had been dead, Robert Mueller still refused to acknowledge the fact that he was wrongfully convicted.
There’s no way to know why Robert Mueller would do something so cruel. It could be because he has no regard for anyone but himself, or because he was so willing to cover for the FBI that he was willing to let the stain on his record remain.
Whatever the reason, this is very likely the worst thing that Robert Mueller ever did, and something he will have to live with for the rest of his life.
