Michael Morrissey did an interview with the Boston Globe today in which he said he was mystified by the federal investigation into his office. His responses were extremely revealing. Globe quotes are in italics, followed by my responses.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said Tuesday he was mystified why federal prosecutors and the Boston office of the FBI have taken the “extraordinary step” of conducting an inquiry into the ongoing Karen Read murder prosecution.

“They don’t have any jurisdiction over a state murder trial, so this is an extraordinary step on their part,” Morrissey said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

They don’t have jurisdiction over a state murder murder? It appears as if Morrissey is so out of touch with what is going on here that he believes they are here to investigate the murder. Of course that’s not what they’re here to do at all. They’re here to investigate his office. HE is the target, and he apparently has no idea this is the case.

“I’m not worried because I have the utmost confidence in what we’ve done and what people have told us.”

He has the utmost confidence in what people have told him? Who are the “people?” This is a man surrounded by nothing but suck up yes men like David Traub and Adam Lally, who have told their boss that things are going fine. Any day now they’re going to release the big bombshell that proves Karen Read is guilty. Maybe he’s so dumb that he actually believes them? Hard to tell.

But what it sounds like to me, and many others who have read that quote, is that he is throwing Michael Proctor and the State Police under the bus. He’s been told by Michael Proctor that there is no conflict with the McCabes and Alberts, prompting him to issue the August 25 press release in which he uttered that ridiculous statement. It’s not his fault that Michael Proctor lied to him, and he’s prepared to feed him to the wolves to save himself. Pleading stupidity and ignorance is his only move.

Morrissey said he dates the federal involvement in the high-profile case to April, when Rachael Rollins was the US attorney for Massachusetts. Rollins resigned May 19 amid a pair of ethics probes that found she misused the power of her office. 

The federal investigation began last December. The subpoenas went out to Colin Albert, Brian Albert, Brian Higgins, and Jennifer McCabe in April, which is why they all had lawyers. Higgins likely flipped and has been cooperating to save himself. It’s the only thing that makes sense, and explains the animosity Jill Daniels had for him when I spoke with her on the Live Show.

Since the spring, Morrissey said he has offered to meet with representatives from Acting US Attorney Joshua S Levy’s office and FBI agents to address any concerns they might have about the Read case, but they have not done so.

“There have been communications by a variety of people, including myself to both the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office, to encourage them to come and speak with us.” Morrissey said. “They have not taken us up on the offer.”

He offered to meet with them and they turned him down, yet he still can’t figure out what’s going on here. Newsflash Meatball Morrissey – you’re the target of their investigation. That’s why they’re not meeting with you. I know your plan is to get them in a room, go heavy on the Quincy accent, and start small talking to them to win them over like you probably do with everyone. They know this is your game and have no interest in it.

Keep in mind, this is a man who wins every election with 98% of the vote since he was first elected to office in 1972. He has never been in a situation where he can’t make a phone call to have his problem fixed. For the first time he has run into people more powerful than him who he has no connections to and can’t be manipulated.

The feds don’t need to speak with Morrissey because they have likely tapped his phones and gotten everything they need on him. When they subpoenaed Colin Albert and Jennifer McCabe it wasn’t to charge them, it was to use them as witnesses against Morrissey and the State Police.

Boston25 reported on the federal inquiry on Monday. A spokeswoman for Levy’s office, Christina Sterling, declined to comment on Tuesday.

“We do not confirm or deny investigations,” she said by email. Kristen Setera, a spokeswoman for the Boston FBI office, also declined to comment.

Morrissey said his office has not received formal notice from federal authorities about the investigation but has provided Read’s lawyers with all communications with federal officials about the case.

Oh this is rich. Look at him squirm as he brags about how he’s bent over backwards to provide exculpatory evidence to Karen Read’s defense team. Meanwhile the 3 minutes of Canton Library footage, the Geo Fence data, and the DNA swabs from John O’Keefe’s arm are still missing.

I’m torn on whether or not Morrissey is really this stupid and naive, or if he’s a diabolical genius getting ready to throw the State Police under the bus. I could go either way right now. This is not an intelligent person who got to where he is in life by being the smartest guy in the room. This is a man who has attained power by turning on the Boston accent, shmoozing people with small talk and colloquialism, and doing favors for other well connected people so they’ll do the same for him. So he may very well have no idea that he’s under investigation.

On the other hand, he did graduate from law school, and I’m not sure if he’s Karl Dugal level stupid enough to believe that John O’Keefe was murdered by his girlfriend’s teeth bearing Lexus. He has to know something was wrong with this case, and yet he’s gone out of his way to use his office to charge me and the Canton 9 for not remaining silent about it.

Either way, the fact that he ran to the Globe to talk about it shows how out of touch with reality he is. The more publicity he brings to this the worse it’s going to get for him. We’ll be talking more about this more on the Live show tonight at 9 PM, so make sure you subscribe to our channel by clicking here. I will also be going on Howie Carr at 6:35 to talk about these developments.

  1. People will be climbing over one another to say that Morrissey knew the game from day one. It’ll be fascinating to watch it collapse in real time.

    1. Well Morrissey has an unblemished record and turtle daddy has 9 felonies. But keep with the conspiracy your doing great

      1. It’s not a conspiracy when there is undeniable proof that something has occurred! You must be a democrat….denying that there’s proof when it’s right there in front of your face!!!! 🙄.

      2. That’s laughable. Is this the goofy spokesperson?
        It’s only unblemished in the books(for now)
        Many people are aware of many things he’s dirtied his hands in.
        His conscience knows. Karma always pops up.

  2. The U.S. Department of Justice investigating the State Police & DA murder investigation is a big shoe that’s dropping. If they did everything right, then there’s nothing to worry about, right? If they conspired to cover-up a murder of a cop, well … then that sure isn’t good for anybody involved, is it? Wonder who’s nervous about all this? Wonder who’s taking the first deal?

  3. He’s stupid but he ain’t dumb. He knows exactly what is happening right now. He’s just looking to control the narrative while h still can.
    And you’re right, schmoozing his way through it is the only thing he knows.
    It does seem like he can lay this all on Proctor, and of course he will if he has to.

  4. Imagine if Proctor, Bukhenic, Tully and Michael Morrissey end up in Jail but the none of the Alberts or McCabes get sent away? How F&%Ked up would that be.

    I wonder if the Canton crew is starting to turn on each other. I wonder who the weak links are there.

    Let’s not forget about the Canton Police and their role in all this. Starting to look like the FBI was already investigating them. I wonder how many Canton Police Officers are involved?

      1. Hahahahaha whatever makes you think that no one is going to prison except for those that didn’t do anything. Hahaha typical democrat…….ignore the evidence while making up your own! Hahaha you’re such a maroon! 😂🤣

      2. Use your noggin please…. The word is out… This involves corrupt police both on the Canton PD and on the State Police and a compromised DA.. So YES, some of them are going to jail.

        As for that low life Canton Crew, Yes, I would expect a few jail sentences there too.

        But if you want to keep your head in the sand and believe that the charade can continue then by all means go right ahead.

  5. The Feds aren’t getting involved for practice. Like this is a slow time of year for them and good time to teach some young recruits the ropes on a no win case. They already know there was some level of corruption and are building a case. Most likely have some type of proof etc. Higgins most likely has told them everything he knows. He’ll save his pension but no longer will be on the job if he did.
    The fact the defense hasn’t had access to all the evidence at this point or the state actually lost evidence in such a high profile case should scare all citizens.
    Vote these people out of office

    1. Spoiler alert. Feds supplying evidence to charge Karen with premeditated first degree murder. Sorry to ruin the party

      1. Ummmmmm the Feds don’t look into murders when they are going after corruption within the government. Jesus just stop embarrassing yourself by showing just how low your IQ actually is. 🤦‍♀️🙄.

      2. That wouldn’t come in the form of a formal investigation into the DA’s office. It would just be entered into evidence and available to the defense as part of discovery. So you’re way, way off.

  6. The fear that the Feds will white wash much of the conspiracy and pin the blame on one or few targets.
    The damage of admitting so many are involved in the cover up…it’s a matter of public perception.
    Better to blame it on a 1 rogue individual than have the citizens lose all faith in their government.

    1. Congrats Dirty, you’re the only one who seems to understand the USA political system. The feds will never take down the whole crew and set things right. ALL members of the USA political class, from local to the White House, all have certain unwritten rules to keep the rotten system going.

      The feds are probably looking to squeeze just hard enough to demand a couple million in bribes, the people who can’t pay their way out or snitch on someone else will get charged as a token and focus for public fervor. 1 or 2 scapegoats and then back to business as usual….”the fix is in” people

      1. Credit and thanks to my then 6th-grade social studies / history teacher: Stan Piltch. Told us the truth.

  7. Wow! This is a bombshell in disguise. So revealing. He’s already setting up his Vincent “The Chin” Gigante defense. Didn’t work for The Chin, ain’t working for you. If the Chin didn’t die in prison, think he’d still have 300 years to serve, maybe 290 with good time. So unless Meatballs Morrissey is straight out of the Old Testament in longevity of life year , I suspect he’ll meet the same fate.

    1. this is just how the wealthy aristocrats that own the USA like it. They like dumb, servile people in key government positions. They don’t want somebody with integrity and the wits to figure things out and make their own initiative.

      Just look at Mayor Menino. I always suspected he was actually illiterate. You never saw him carrying any papers or folders or anything written into his meetings. He said his favorite hobby was shopping for ice cream at the grocery store.

  8. I hope you all are happy for ruining a star athletes athletic and academic career over a blogger and his conspiracy theory. Idk how it is so lost on you all that a women is incapable of getting shit faced and manslaughtering. Family’s fearing outsiders coming to town just to spread your bologna. Lady got shit faced and ran over bf for trying to break up.thats it nothing more and you will be very disappointed when her charges get upped to fist degree. Feds just supplying morrisey with evidence in this joint investigation. But you can’t fix stupid and you will continue sending money to turtle daddy so he can drive the Lexus you people bought him to go-to Canton and stir more shit.keep messing with the bull don’t whine when there is a horn in your ass. Karen did it and she will do it again if acquitted.

      1. I’m not the one who ruined a bright kids early adult life over lies and conspiracies. So yes I consider myself a nice guy

        1. If you think this kid is “bright” well I just have to assume your own bar is set unbelievably low. Yikes.

          1. Writes like I assume Colin would. That would also explain the fluffing as “bright” and a “star athlete.”

    1. Do you actually believe what you are saying or are you just so far up Proctor’s ass that you will say anything to defend him. Autopsy photos don’t lie, that is not a man hit by a car. Let’s see those 3 minutes of library footage that Proctor deleted. And the taillight pieces, how stupid does he think we are? Save your pennies because I’m sure Proctor will need money on his commissary account.

      1. Autopsy shows his arm was cut by a cocktail glass. The black eyes are from blood pooling from impact . But it’s ok
        All you turtle slobs do is lie and ruin a kids life over lies.

        1. HAHAHAHHAH you truly believe that a cocktail glass did that? You used your actual eyes to look at those photos and truly believe that? No wonder you think Karen is guilty, you are fucking delusional. If you think those are from a cocktail glass please do us all a favor and try it on yourself – remember down the street, not across. And the black eyes, those black eyes are not from her backing into him, they’re from the star athlete you mentioned beating the shit out of him BANG BANG.

          1. My theory is the Uncle gave O’Keefe the black eyes while the “star athlete” suckered and caved O’Keefe’s skull in from behind with a weight plate. All while the dog was attacking O’Keefe.

        2. How do you explain the lack of ANY injuries to his legs and torso? I know these are tough questions and you will just say something even stupider than you already have, or ignore them, but what the fuck, I need a laugh!

        1. Well, if the evidence doesn’t support a guilty verdict , we’d most likely say it’s unfortunate, if the evidence supports a guilty verdict, we’d agree with it.

          What will YOU say when she’s found not guilty? By your writing it appears you are as dumb as Colin and about his age, so to avoid looking and dumber than you already appear, let the adults talk!

    2. I asked you before, I’ll ask you again, what part of the murder of John O’Keefe is federal jurisdiction? Do you understand why a murder becomes a federal crime? Did you go to school?

      Better people think you’re stupid, than speak and prove them right!

    3. Honestly…once you made mention of “ruining a star athlete’s athletic and ACADEMIC career” all I could think about was his attempt @ a fulfilling a simple poetry assignment.

      As to being a “star athlete”–>C’mon man the definition of “star” is a bit meaningless.
      By the way, since we all know, via his inane videos…you forgot to mention that he is a “star” bully with a gag-worthy level of braggadocio.

      If he wasn’t such a punk I’d feel bad for him as it appears he wasn’t raised to understand that the drunken bullying, entitled and obnoxious adult behavior he witnessed growing up wasn’t going to help him achieve an honest and respectable future.

    4. That’s comical.. Star athlete? Academic career?

      The kid was going to BSU, a D3 school that accepts over 90% of its applicants. He was no Star Athlete or academic scholar. That’s why he only had BSU as an option.. BSU might be relieved to not have him enrolled. Honestly, what school wants a kid like that as a student.

      Canton will be a safer place once he’s locked up.

    5. No we’re not happy yet. We won’t be happy until your star athelete is running the prison pro-laps.

    6. A “star athlete” wouldn’t be in a d3 team. Clearly he could use the education if he thinks manslaughter is a verb. 😂

  9. My father grew up with mike Morrissey in quincy and is a well known alcoholic that accident was a dui years back just covered it up. He use to beg my grandfather to introduce him to neighbors he could never do it on his own in his hometown knows he is trash

  10. Karen will be free. Aidan will be free. This whole saga is a shit show of the highest order. Did Chris teach Colon how to commit murder? Or was it just the old Albert instinct?

  11. This observation is pure gold Aidan!!!

    ” I know your plan is to get them in a room, go heavy on the Quincy accent, and start small talking to them to win them over like you probably do with everyone. They know this is your game and have no interest in it.”

  12. I used to work with and for Michael at his law firm before he became DA. I was there at his law firm for 7 years so I got to know him pretty well.

    It’s the same law firm that Dan Conley worked for (he left the firm before I worked there, but he left to become Suffolk County DA)

    The firm also produced a Suffolk County Judge (T. Campo).

    Michele didn’t come in very often, he was at the state house most of the time. That seemed more important to him than the law firm.

    He handled all the “small” car accident cases a few other small cases but nothing of substance.

    I believe the reason was he wasn’t in that often. But it’s also because he isn’t very bright.

    He has a lot of friends in high places and I believe, he gets elected for those reasons.

    I also thought that the car accident was a DUI and I share the same thoughts on a possible alcohol issue.

    Not a very nice statement but he is about as bright as he looks.

    I don’t know what he is thinking; but I have to wonder why he has let it go this far.

    I like the comment that it’s the first time he can’t make a phone call and I believe that is most likely true.

    So do the math – your 2 very close friends are the former Suffolk County DA and a Suffolk County Judge, among others I am not aware of.

    He’s as dumb as he looks for sure.

  13. I don’t know why people keep assuming that somehow the feds are above corruption and pure as the fallen snow.

    Are we forgetting the history of Boston and Massachusetts? The Boston FBI office illegally conspired with Whitey Bulger to help murder 15-20 people over decades. The Boston FBI office under John Connolly became part of the Irish mafia and moved to take down 4-5 Italian mafia families and murder anyone who got in the way. He’s in prison now.

    The Boston FBI office was most likely complicit in, or a direct cause of the Marathon bombings. US federal law enforcement is corrupt as hell. They can be bought, easily, with enough cash. This is how the system works. These crime families make enough money off the “illegal drug” trade to pay off anyone.

  14. What a ridiculous statement! He had confidence in what they have been told.
    You don’t charge a person for second degree murder on something you were told.
    You make dam sure that person did it.
    You make sure there is no conflicts of interest.
    You make sure you have all of the evidence and facts. You are the district attorney.
    Absolute joke p o s.
