(Natural News) Special counsel Robert Mueller has received plenty of criticism regarding his “witch hunt” investigation into allegations that then-GOP candidate Donald Trump “colluded” with Russians to “steal the election” in 2016 and then obstructed justice to hide it.

These allegations are nothing more than Deep State fabrications and Mueller knows it. Everyone involved knows it. President Trump knows it.

However, not everyone knows that Mueller has a scurrilous, scandalous history involving four innocent men he allowed to either rot or die in prison just to protect a mafia source named Joseph “The Animal” Barboza.

As radio host Howie Carr, writing for The Daily Caller, recounts, newly revealed FBI documents note that in 2002, when Mueller was director of the FBI, he instructed agents to oppose the pardons of the four men — Louie Greco, Henry Tameleo, Peter Limone and Joe Salvati — because, he said, exculpatory evidence that had long existed was just “fodder for cross-examination,” one document shows.

Four years after that memo was written, all four men or their estates were collectively awarded $102 million by a federal court in Boston over their wrongful imprisonment — for decades — thanks to FBI misconduct.

The pardon was related to a request to Mueller from the Massachusetts Advisory Board of Pardons, which sought an “official version” of the imprisonment of the four men for a gangland-style murder in Chelsea, Mass., in March 1965. The men were eventually convicted in state court for allegedly killing Edward “Teddy” Deegan, a low-level hoodlum, during an attempted bank robbery.

Mueller is culpable
Carr notes:

Within days of the murder, Boston FBI agents knew the identities of the actual murderers and reported the information to J. Edgar Hoover in Washington. But they allowed a Mob hitman they had flipped, Joseph Barboza, to settle some old scores by falsely testifying that the four men had taken part in the gangland murder he had helped arrange with others.

In 2002, lawyers for one of the innocent men, Louie Greco — a decorated World War II vet who was living in Florida at the time of the murder — were attempting to get a posthumous pardon from Massachusetts officials (he died in prison in 1995 after serving 28 years). Barboza’s perjured testimony put him and the other three behind bars.

After the initial trial, another Boston-area gangster would tell a congressional committee that one FBI agent bragged about framing Greco. He said the agent exclaimed, “How does Louie Greco like going from Miami to Death Row? He wasn’t even there!”

For more than three decades, the FBI, citing “national security” concerns, refused to release the exculpatory evidence. Finally, it was released in 2000 as part of an investigation at the time into FBI corruption in the Boston office, Carr noted.

Despite the fact that the evidence indicated without question that the four men were innocent, Mueller’s FBI nevertheless claimed that they might still be guilty, in spite of the FBI’s own reports to the contrary. 

Deegan was murdered on March 12, 1965. The FBI at the time sent memos to headquarters in Washington, D.C., on March 15 and 19 identifying the real killers. None of the four men who were eventually convicted for the crime were mentioned in those memos.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
