Pellicano Sought Prison 'Hit,' U.S. Alleges
LA Times ^ | 5/9/06 | Greg Krikorian and Andrew Blankstein

Posted on 05/09/2006 9:47:51 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

Federal prosecutors alleged Monday that Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano recently conspired with known mobsters in Chicago to put a prison "hit" on the man he allegedly hired to threaten a Los Angeles Times reporter.

The hit, according to court papers, was allegedly aimed at Alexander Proctor, an ex-convict who was arrested for placing a dead fish with a rose in its mouth and a sign that said "Stop" on the windshield of reporter Anita Busch's car in the summer of 2002.

When an FBI informant later surfaced with Proctor on tape boasting that he was working for Pellicano, federal authorities used the recording to obtain a warrant to search Pellicano's Sunset Boulevard office in November 2002. That search triggered the ongoing racketeering and wiretapping probe that has much of Hollywood in its thrall.

So far, Pellicano and six others, including Hollywood lawyer Terry Christensen, have been indicted for allegedly using illegal background checks and wiretaps to dig up dirt on adversaries, typically in civil and criminal litigation. All deny the charges.

Director John McTiernan of "Die Hard" fame and five others have pleaded guilty.

The timing and nature of the alleged attempt to put a prison hit on Proctor was not revealed Monday in court papers that were filed by prosecutors. The papers opposed an earlier motion by Pellicano's attorney to compel authorities to turn over additional evidence.

But records and interviews show that Proctor, 62, was moved in recent months from a federal prison in Greenville, Ill., to a federal facility in southeast Georgia, where he continues to serve a 10-year sentence for drug trafficking.

Hillary Clinton's Private Eye.

They never seem to mention that.

What is the Bill and Hillary Clinton's connection with Pellicano? Is there any verifiable proof of a connection?

I wonder if they're also investigating the "hit" on Kathleen Willey's cat.

" . . . boasting that he was working for Pellicano, . . . "

A full-pardon and a safe house for everything he knows and did. Let's start weeding out goons in government. Past, present and future.

http://prorev.com/hillary.htm JOSEPH FARRAH, WORLDNET DAILY, JULY 2005 - A significant portion of the [Clinton's] Shadow Team's operations were carried out by private investigators, among them: Terry Lenzner, founder and chairman of the powerful Washington, D.C., detective firm Investigative Group International; high-ticket San Francisco private eye Jack Palladino and his wife Sandra Sutherland; and Hollywood sleuth Anthony J. Pellicano. . .

Hillary's detectives engaged in "a systematic campaign to intimidate, frighten, threaten, discredit and punish innocent Americans whose only misdeed is their desire to tell the truth in public," former Clinton adviser Dick Morris charged in the New York Post of Oct. 1, 1998.

Hillary's secret police tend to be a tight-lipped bunch, professionally skilled at keeping a low profile. However, we know more about Anthony "The Pelican" Pellicano than about most Hillary operatives, thanks to his boastfulness and taste for the limelight. Pellicano's violent career as a private investigator reveals much about the sorts of qualifications Hillary sought in her Shadow Team.

DFU SONG: That's Amore (that's Hillary's thug, Pellicano)
DFU SONGS | 2-2006 | Lyrics, Doug from Upland

Posted on 02/06/2006 8:07:04 PM PST by doug from upland

MIDI - THAT'S AMORE

(fairly long intro)

hired him to shut up Bill's women, Pellicano
Were there threats, oh, you bet...'cause you should never test Pellicano

He would break Sally Perdue's legs even if she begged
Only fools don't believe it
If you had Clinton evidence he would hop your fence
He'd go in and retrieve it

hired him to shut up Bill's women, Pellicano
When you mess with the Clintons, there is not a rule that applies
If you're posing a threat, you'll be facing him mano a ma-ano
He had worked for the mob and did 's job, Pellicano

hired him to shut up Bill's women, Pellicano
Because power's her goal, she had sold out her soul, indeed

If you're posing a threat, you'll be facing him mano a ma-ano
He had worked for the mob and did 's job, Pellicano

Pellicano...Pellicano

Right now he's a convicted felon on the explosives charges. Now he's up on the wire tapping charges and, if this new set of allegations is true, he'll probably be indicted for trying to have Proctor murdered, plus employing Proctor to threaten the reporter.

The most interesting thing is this is the first time the Pelican has been directly charged with attempting to have somebody murdered. Up to now it's "only" been wire tapping and various types of thuggish intimidation. I have to ask where Hillary's favorite PI was in the weeks immediately before Vince Foster's "suicide" and what was he doing. Accurate answers to those questions would probably reveal the real cause of Foster's death.

Good question.
And Paula Jones had better count her blessings.

Well .. there is a book, "Failure of the Public Trust", written by Clarke, Knowlton and Turley.

I don't think they would be surprised to find out Hillary's hit man was in D.C.
