(Clinton Thug) Pellicano found guilty of racketeering and conspiracy
LA Times ^ | May 15, 2008 | Times Staff Writer

Posted on 05/15/2008 1:05:41 PM PDT by icwhatudo

A federal jury has found Los Angeles private detective Anthony Pellicano guilty of racketeering and conspiracy. The verdict, which could mean a penalty of eight to 10 years in federal prison, effectively brings to a close the career of the most infamous private eye in Los Angeles -- a man who insinuated himself into the loftiest legal and entertainment circles in town and even consulted on law enforcement cases, until he became the subject of one.

Pellicano sat grinning and looking around room before the verdicts were read. But when he realized the jury had found him guilty, he crossed his arms, took his glasses off and looked around the courtroom without expression. A woman on the jury dabbed her eyes with a tissue.

So, an “Arkancide” was really a “Pellicanocide?” ;)

Bet that he thought that he was teflon since he was connected to the Clinton machine.

The guy who claimed the Gennifer Flowers tapes were doctored and bought the Clintons just enough time in that scandal.

No mention of Hillary or Bill... How do members of the media look themselves in the mirror?

This guy was Bill and Hillary’s go to guy.

Thanks for the link

per Wikipedia the Clinton's were associated with Jack Palladino not this PI Pellicano. I have gotten them mixed up before.

Doubt it. Remember, we're dealing with the Clintons here - he will probably want to avoid an Oswald type fate.

If Pellicano knows nothing else, he knows the value of keeping his mouth shut.

I would love to see your suggestion come true. Those two deserve to answer for the things they have done.

The truth is dead to them when it is outside their political bent. Look that the havoc and death they have visited on our troops and innocent Iraqis and others in their reporting on the war in Iraq (and WOT for that matter). A pox on their dishonest houses...

I listened to the phone call where Pellicano is talking to Chris Rock about a woman he had a problem with and first talking about smearing her and then talking about doing much worse. He not so subtly hinted about killing her.

Um...

(Note:Pellicano has often been confused with Jack Palladino, a San Francisco-based private investigator whose client list has included Bill Clinton and Courtney Love.)

Tell all about the cases he handled for the Clintons?
If he had documented evidence on the two grifters it would surely save his sorry butt.
Unfortunately with appeals he may stick it out forever. On the other hand he may understand that to delay only makes him a target for one of the other Clinton “detectives”.

It was not Anthony Pellicano who was Clinton's bad guy.

Clinton's man was Jack Palladino.

So even though Wikipida says the two get confused there is no confusion and they were both hired to do the same thing?

I found this in regards to Anthoney Pellicano. It sounds like he did the same as Jack Pellidano

2/2/98

Washington Weekly: "The Clinton White House has its agents scouring the country digging up dirt on the 24-year-old girl who made claims of a sexual involvement with Bill Clinton. The old Bimbo Eruption Swat Team has gone into overdrive, recruiting private investigator Anthony Pellicano, whose last claim to Clinton damage control fame was his "scientific determination" that the Gennifer Flowers tapes had been edited. (An independent laboratory analysis later confirmed their unedited authenticity) Now Pellicano has resurrected Monica Lewinsky's old drama coach, who did his own Gennifer Flowers number on her just minutes before Clinton's State of the Union Address."

"Federal prosecutor Kevin Lally started off the trial by telling jury members Pellicano had masterminded a criminal enterprise, which discredited and attempted to destroy rivals of his famed clients.

It turns out that Pellicano was the audio “expert” who discredited Gennifer Flowers’ tape recordings so that the press could do what they desired at the time — disregard the voice of a certain former governor of Arkansas as he engaged in unseemly conversation with Flowers and disparaged Mario's Cuomo's Italian heritage and reputation.

That’s right, in 1992, in a bid to discredit, among other things, Flowers' audio recordings of conversations with William Jefferson Clinton, Pellicano was hired by Bill and Hill.
