Investigator Charged With Conspiracy, Threats Against Reporter (Clinton attack dog, Pellicano)
LA Times ^ | June 17, 2005 | Richard Winton

Posted on 06/17/2005 6:21:12 PM PDT by Dan Evans

Anthony Pellicano, the high-profile private investigator whose clients included some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, was charged today with conspiracy and making threats against a Los Angeles Times reporter. Anita Busch was researching a story in 2002 about the relationship between actor Steven Seagal and a reputed Mafia figure when someone fired a bullet through the windshield of her unoccupied car.

Left on top of the vehicle was a dead fish with a rose in its mouth and a sign reading: "Stop." The charges today were filed by Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley after a lengthy investigation by state and federal authorities.

Pellicano is now serving a sentence of 30 months in federal prison after he was convicted of possessing two illegal hand grenades and a quantity of plastic explosives. The contraband was discovered during a search of his office related to the investigation into the Busch threats. The explosive devices that resulted in his conviction were discovered in a locked safe during an FBI raid on his Sunset Boulevard offices in November 2002.

"Pellicano Was a Key Participant in Clinton Campaign to Intimidate Gennifer Flowers

"What do actor Steven Seagal and Senator Hillary Clinton have in common? Both allegedly hired the same low-life private detective to do their dirty work.

"Anthony J. Pellicano was arrested recently for hiring an ex-con, allegedly at the direction of Seagal, to intimidate Los Angeles Times reporter Anita Busch."

Clinton Private Detective Arrested

Why do stories like this always come out on Friday?

I noticed the article listed Elizabeth Taylor and others as among Pellicano's clients, but nary a word about the Hildabeest.

Many freepers hoped he would sing about Hillary before he received the 30 month sentence he's now serving.

But Pellicano's work is that of a private eye. He can't sing on anybody if he wants to work again.

He may spill some beans if he ever gets a life sentence, but for relatively light sentences, he clams up. He will take his secrets to the grave.....or like Deep Throat, reveal them when he's senile and broke.

I believe this guy also worked for Michael Jackson, and that he might still be using his firm. A lot of the conspiracy charges sounded like they came right out of the Clinton playbook.

"Between the late evening hours of June 10, 2002, and the early hours of June 20, 2002, Alexander Proctor went to Anita Busch's residence in Los Angeles County and threatened her by placing a dead fish with a rose in its mouth on the windshield of her car," according to the complaint.

He (Proctor) made a hole in the windshield with the intent to make it appear like a bullet hole."

And probably by using a real gun.

Perhaps he will scream her name when someone try's to make him their girlfriend.

Well, it wasm't ACTUALLY a "holocaust". It was more of a period of moderate discomfort. More of a "holo-chaffing" that a holocaust.

I don't think he is likely to receive a lot of time on the State charges. Perhaps the State of California is looking to convict him of felony State charges so it can revoke his P/I license. There is probably much much more going on though. If you get more articles that expand on what the State is doing regarding Pellicano, I would appreciate a ping.

PELLICANO worked for MARK GERAGOS while the latter was working for MICHAEL JACKSON ..to conspire to intimidate one particular "nuisance" sexual abuse JACKSON victim family.

"Clinton Private Detective"

I'm betting "Clinton Hit Man" is closer to the truth.

Isn't he just serving a 30 mo sentence?

Hollyweird powerhouse lawyer Bert Fields is the next one to be indicted. Pellicano was his wiretap guy. Pellicano taped everyone, friends and enemies.

I would expect the transcripts of his wiretapes include his conversations with Hitlery's people as well as his wiretaps on her behalf of Gennifer Flowers. But I wouldn't expect that proscutors are going to go after that case.

Bert Fields is the #1 target.

Thank you, I thought that was the case! Certainly, the tactics were the same ones used with the Clintons.

Actually, judging from what he's done so far for the Clintons and the Jacksons, I suspect "Thug of all Trades" might apply.

If Hillary has half a brain, she won't go near him again. He could have been turned and set up for a sting against her.

LOL! Hillary's cookie-recipe is the high-carb diet plan, right? :-)

Pellicano can be thoroughly researched at this website. http://sinhablar.com/index6.html, starting from the most recent posts. Our Inculpable Monachy (Hollywood) could be in trouble, if the feds aren't compromised as well, which I wouldn't put past this guy.
