Paul Bergrin Needs Help: Where is the Real FBI and DOJ

This case is so convoluted that it requires a team of real attorneys (JAG and criminal practice) and actual former or retired FBI, DEA, and DOJ investigators. They would need a large room and a physical (as opposed to computer spreadsheet) board the size of a wall to track each and every issue and every party the Newark US Attorney's Office labeled witness or informant in the duration of this case, which is approaching 10 years at this point, and actually much longer if we are to count initial investigations.

Where is mainstream media? Am I the only person still actually researching this case? Am I the only one not afraid to speak against the tyrannical government and malicious prosecutions in this country? Do investigative journalists still exist or was the entire profession eliminated long ago?

I know there are real attorneys out there. I know that there are investigators who actually investigate. Where are you? Did the government scare you away? Did you read 10 pages and decide it was too much work? Taking on any part of this case requires extensive reading and research. I understand that it won't be an easy ordeal. Paul Bergrin needs your help. Please step-up to the plate!

From the very beginning to date this entire case against Paul Bergrin is a farce. Again though, actual reading and research is required to reach this conclusion. In case you are wondering what our tyrants are doing now, I will tell you...

A friend sends Paul money on occasion to assist him with his costs of document production and mailing as well as purchase of necessary commissary items with whatever is remaining. The BOP (Bureau of Prisons), the warden at Florence ADMAX, and no doubt the DOJ, decided to steal what little money Paul Bergrin receives to cover everything in his life as it is today. So not only is this friend unable to have any contact with Paul whatsoever, these low-life creeps have decided to steal the money she sends to him.



Somehow I doubt that Paul Bergrin is their only victim.


Where are Paul's many friends, fellow soldiers, fellow veterans, JAG attorneys, attorneys, judges, and actual investigators who know the real Paul Bergrin? He is in the H-Unit in Florence ADMAX (the Supermax) in Florence, Colorado. He has been there under SAMs (Special Administrative Measures) since November 1, 2016, and is in solitary confinement. Paul is drowning and he needs your help!

Oh and while I'm posting, here is the government response to Paul's 400 page handwritten response:

 
Paul Bergrin is still the same great man you knew before this malicious, absurd prosecution was concocted with the assistance of, and government collusion with, criminal informants. Please do not let him down.

I believe that I am the guilty person that has sent commissary money to my friend
Paul Bergrin. When I found out that it was not given to Paul, I called Admax and
was spoken aggressively as if I was a criminal. I had to specify that I was a friend
of Paul and was only helping my friend to survive through these difficult moments of
life. Not everyone is a criminal in this world and there was no reason for this
approach. I left a message and no one called me back. I sent a fax and no one replied.
This money was originally for Paul and I wish he would receive it.
I would like people on a day like today to remember what Martin Luther King wrote
in his letter from the Birmingham Jail. He said * INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT
TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE *
So please before judging someone, be sure he is a real criminal and even then don't
hurt anyone unnecessarily. Patience and compassion in this short life of ours are
virtues. If not * Silence is a prove of intelligence * again from Martin Luther King.* Marie.

WHERE ARE PAULS FRIENDS WITH ALL THE HUMANITARIAN WORK HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS.
COME ON GUYS COME AND HELP HIM, DONT BE AFRAID TO COME FORWARD AND SPEAK FOR PAUL.
HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE ANYONE DOWN. THIS IS THE MAN I KNOW AND THE REAL PAUL BERGRIN
NOT THE FAKE ONE PEOPLE PORTRAY THROUGH ARTIFICIAL MEDIAS.
DO SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR PAUL. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN TELLING THE TRUTH AND
FIGHTING FOR A GOOD PERSON LIKE PAUL BERGRIN. ALSO HOPE THAT JUDGE LINARES REACHES
OUT TO FIND THE TORTUROUS MANIPULATIONS OF MANY PERSONS IN THIS CASE AND SEEKS FOR
NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH AND REAL JUSTICE.

Now I question if they will give Mr Bergrin the possibility to present his defense in his rule 2255. Are they once more going to stop him to have a fair trial....
They did not allow him the assistance of an attorney in his 2255 and they stop his
papers to reach court. What a bunch of rotten persons to act such a way! It is the
actions of the BOP and those persons in the Justice department in NJ that rule but
cannot be accepted as legal and honest. I am right with all this.

Vicky Gallas said...

May every single person participating in this false and vindictive prosecution one day experience a facility as horrifying as they have designated Paul to.

Is anyone in the US checking out such a situation where the Justice system is just
simply corrupted. It seems that these persons just do what they want and are not
checked by the government or a judge or a superior authority. This is completely
hilarious!

We could say that we absolutely have no Justice system, we have a bunch of outlaw
cowboys running this country doing the fuck they want. Insane and Crazy!

Such a corrupted justice system makes the US nothing more than a crippled country
and not America the First. We only pretend to be what we are not. We lie to others
and to ourselves. We wont get very far with this attitude.

Anonymous said...

Agree totally that the Justice Department in NJ is above the law and not checked
by higher authorities. They make their own rules and apply them without fear of
any punishment because they KNOW THAT NO ONE WILL CHECK their dishonest and criminal acts. It is also criminal to let this happen without correcting it.

NOW HOW CAN PAUL BERGRIN DEFEND HIS RULE 2255 WITHOUT ANY ACCESS TO DOCUMENTATION
WHATSOEVER WITHOUT ANY LEGAL SUPPORT THAT IS, THE ASSISTANCE OF AN ATTORNEY AND
DIFFERENT CASES TO JUSTIFY HIS DEFENSE. PLUS HE IS IN ADMAX LOCKED UP IN SOLITARY
CONFINEMENT 23 HOURS OUT OF 24 HOURS. I BELIEVE THERE IS NO TIME FOR LIBRARY
CONSULTATIONS AND NO NO DOCUMENTATION, ZIPPO! THEY TOOK ALL HIS PAPERS AWAY FROM HIM.
IF THIS IS NOT CRIMINAL, WELL GOD MAKE ME DIE NOW.
JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL IN THIS CASE, BECAUSE NOTHING JUST NOTHING STANDS UP TO BE
RIGHT.

Vicky Gallas said...

Somehow I think there would be better results if I pleaded with the international legal world for assistance. This blog often has more reads in specific countries (China and Russia for example) than in the US. Here's my plea...

Help prove that the US criminal justice system is bloated crap and filled with overpaid workers that accomplish little in the way of actual justice! The US government has managed to create a convoluted disaster of the truth in this case by paying its lying trash criminal informants large sums of money ($$$$) to say what they're directed to say. There is NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE whatsoever in this case. Contact me for any documents you are missing or with any questions. HELP prove Paul Bergrin's innocence!

Personally, I bet that disputing every count here would be simple for an international team.

When is the rule 33 going to take place to correct all these injustices, would
like to know if possible. Thank you Vicky.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

As far as I recall, we are just waiting for the judge to rule on the Rule 33. Larry Lustberg is representing Paul Bergrin on that and that alone. Paul represents himself on the 2255 petition, which is just about impossible because he has no access to his legal papers, a law library, or anyone to research as he is incommunicado in Florence ADMAX. And of course that is how the government planned it.

Anonymous said...

It seems that many of Pauls friends and supporters are not answering to help him.
No one answers to help Paul. This is where you see your true friends in times of
need. The government has planned a lot and still seems to be in control with their
criminality and everyone pisses in their pants and selfishness. USA has a really
corrupted justice system worse than some of these many undeveloped countries because
they put you a knife in the back and do not confront you bravely in front like a
true man or woman should do, learn to face the truth and solve the problem.
USA cannot be respected for what it is because it is nothing great.

Why is it that USA is so abusive in power and so insane! This poor man does not
deserve this. He deserve fairness and Justice. Most of all, he already has been in
prison for many years when innocent. It seems to be a national sport in the USA, to
put people in prison and not give them the proper means to defend their case by locking them up with no communication whatsoever with the outside world.* SO SHUT UP, STARVE, DIE IN PRISON WITH NO HELP* This is the American Justice system motto.

On April 17th Paul Bergrin had not received the respond of the government to his
rule 2255. How could he answer to something not received. He had 30 days to reply
not more. These persons do all this on purpose and they are the ones above the law
not Paul Bergrin. Who can reply to a letter not received and is that respecting
the Judge or the court. Not sure.

Vicky Gallas said...

@the last Anonymous -

The response was received at ADX Florence a while back, perhaps April 6th, so one of two possible reasons here for Paul not to receive it:

1. Newark US Attorney's Office is colluding with BOP and ADX Florence to withhold Paul's important legal papers so he's unable to respond.

OR

2. Incompetent and/or malicious ADX Florence staff interference with Paul's legal mail.

Your guess is as good as mine. I have a letter filed from USAO to Judge Linares with tracking info showing the legal mail as signed for at ADX Florence. However, we also know that the USAO has colluded with BOP and the DOJ to keep Paul incommunicado so it is all working as they INTEND it to work.

Anonymous said...

All these federal services are colluding to Stop Paul from getting his legal papers and they are hindering seriously the legal procedures of the case. The Judge should
open his eyes with honesty and due respect to his profession and also towards the
population of this country. We are many that have never seen anything so corrupted
as this case of Paul Bergrin.

I am French and very proud of my beautiful language. In Europe we have a French
dictum that says WORDS ARE LIKE CHARCOAL THEY CAN EASILY DESTROY THE REPUTATION
OF A HUMAN BEING AND HIS WHOLE LIFE. So, all what the medias have written about
Paul Bergrin is not obviously the truth. More the justice system in the US pronounces you guilty before giving you a chance to prove the contrary. Worse
Paul with the SAMS cannot prove his innocence, he is cut off from the outside
world 95%. I really don't call that Justice. Its like kicking in an open door.
Even Pauls attorney must have a hard time to contact his client. Where is there
Justice in all this scenario. You are right Vicky, there is no Justice in Paul
Bergrins case and that should not continue like this. A friend of Paul Bergrin.

Anonymous said...

Now who are the insane persons that invented this thing called SAMS Special Administrative measures in a what is suppose to be a Justice System. In Major
Paul Bergrins case the SAMS has been forced upon him and extended so many times
so that this man could never have a change to prove his innocence in a fair way.
Its an accumulation of fabricated circumstances to bring him into the SAMS.
Consequently, we can truly define openly that our Justice system is based on extreme
unfairness without any doubt. ITS A UNILATERAL SYSTEM.

Anonymous said...

This is very true. Why does the Judge let this happen and not do anything to allow Mr Bergrin communicate with the outside world and prove his innocence. We do not
live in a democracy but in tyranny. Who can stand up and explain all this apart
from you Vicky, who can....

I was a lawyer in a case where Paul and his partner were trying to represent two drug sellers, which is a conflict and the judge wouldn't let him do it in spite of waivers. He harangue the family for cash in the hallway. He copies my motions. He pleaded guilty to running an escort service. No saint he.

Responding to the last 2 Anonymous posts (part 1):

Not intending to censor your comments because clearly you are a real person and not a troll. Google Blogger stopped notifying me of comments via email, so it's when I am on the laptop that I publish. That being said, I did see your comments late last night and just wasn't in the mood to argue so I waited to publish until now.

Let's discuss attorneys for a moment... So Paul AND a partner represented 2 drug dealers, which is a conflict because someone is going to deal, right? Paul hit the family up for money in the hallway anyway. So far I'm seeing normal attorney behavior and I don't see his partner in prison for 200 years. Maybe Paul was owed money just for arguing about the representation. No matter because hitting people up for money is what 8 of 10 attorneys do. Paul was never faithful to drug dealers and like most attorneys, he tried to get the money. Maybe he tried to help a client on occasion when he saw redeeming qualities, but otherwise was just another money grabbing paper pusher like most attorneys.

So anything criminal in all of that? No, or 80% of practicing defense attorneys would be in prison.

He copied your motions? I totally believe that. Paul was never much for writing motions or making legal arguments on paper. You should see the "memorandum" he just sent to the court. He was used to others doing his paperwork, which is not illegal or even unusual. And Paul was a skilled trial attorney - that quality is what made him stand out from the rest of the crowd.

While I am on the laptop here is a link to the trial transcript wherein Oscar Cordova returns to the stand to admit to his perjury days earlier when he testified. The beginning of the transcript discusses his return, but his testimony begins on page 6240. Have you ever heard of such a cluster? I consider it unimaginable that his testimony wasn't tossed. I don't even believe his name is Oscar Cordova:

I will return shortly and finish this response. As you should be aware, escort services are my area of expertise, so get ready for the scathing response.

Vicky Gallas said...

Responding to the last 2 Anonymous posts (part 2) -

So, I dont think I clicked reply for part 1,but it is my most recent comment on this post.

Let's discuss Paul's plea 8n the NY State prostitution case for a minute...

First of all, as an attorney you should know better. 1)There's no such charge as "running an escort service". An escort service is not illegal by itself. There must be some other factor that makes it illegal. Hence no such charge exists. 2) Paul pled to a misdemeanor in the case just to make it go away, like people do every single day and every minute of the day in the US. A misdemeanor would have allowed him to practice law in the not-too-distant future. His life would basically remain intact. Only an idiot client would take that to trial with such a deal on the table. And the State of New York would not have offered such a deal if they actually had the case they claimed to have in the news.

Can we agree so far? Does pleading to a minor misdemeanor mean that Paul deserved 200 years out in torture city (ADX Florence) in your eyes? I would hope not. As an attorney, I expect you to be more intelligent than most of the population in this country.

Now I do not even recall which specific misdemeanor Paul pled to, but as an attorney you should know that's irrelevant anyway. It is what Paul did (or did not do) in the case that matters here.

I wanted to discuss this with Paul, to ask what exactly he did, like a point by point discussion, but could not because there was no secure method of communication. Couldn't do it in email or on the phone, which was really too bad because I could have told him how to explain it to the court. On that note, the rest of my response here is my best guess...

Since Itzler was never called by the government, I must assume there was no case in anything related to the NY prosecution. It should have been left out of this case. Natalia was a witness to nothing. She spent all of her time either on drugs, shopping, in Vegas, on calls for Itzler or all of the above. Her testimony was more personal in nature and had no value. If she had sex with Paul, I dont think he paid. Nothing illegal there.

So why didn't the government call Itzler? My guess is that the answer is simple. Itzler directed Paul to get with his driver to collect $$$ he owed Paul for legal representation. Of course when you're dealing with a bunch of people at an escort service, it can turn into a cluster quick. Been there and dealt with that.

Responding to the last 2 Anonymous comments (part 3) -

Because you knew there would be a part 3,right?

The New York State case was really hyped in the mainstream media. Paul was bound to attract attention with his defense of US Army soldier Javal Davis in the Abu Ghraib case. Paul's defense of Corey Clagett in the Operation Iron Triangle case had attracted attention around the world. If you're unaware read Maximum Hypocrisy on this blog. The state case was false information, hype, and devoid of actual substance.

To use the case with no substance as a basis for conviction in this case only fooled those who are blinded by moral judgment. They are unable to see beyond the limitations they set for themselves based on myth and/or religion. Not a basis for real prosecution.

This was actually a good exercise. If you respond, I will respond until. I could do this with each count, and when we're done it will be clear what this entire case actually is: a huge nothing burger.

Take that to the bank.

@the last Anonymous

Forget all of that MAGA crap. We have one of the worst criminal justice systems in the Western (and much of the Eastern) world. As long as that doesn't change and it only worsens, this country will never be great; instead it is downright terrifying. One of my bottom 20 places to live in the world because of this.

You know I am not a Trump fan, and really I am not a fan of any politician. I think they all lie to get what they want. But in the big Trump vs Mueller argument currently going on, I realized that I am unable to choose a side. The reason for this is this case. The behavior and actions of the FBI and DOJ in this case is abhorrent, and it is all leftover from the Obama administration - Trump didn't do it, but Mueller has been around for every bit of it. It doesn't look good for the FBI or DOJ and makes them all look like lying trash or incredibly dumbed-down, like they're all on far too many big pharma drugs.

One example is the complaining attorneys that have posted and attempted to post comments on the blog for many years now, including the latest one. You see my 3 part response here to the last one... either he's too chicken to respond or he's the clown attempting to post "He pled to running an escort service." Obviously there is no such charge. Cities and counties sell licenses for escort services. I wrote a book on how to open and operate an escort service. I get sick and tired of only getting gibberish responses from a bunch of idiots. The worst part is this entire case is like that!

The difference between me and most people is that I call out lies and liars, and I am never nice about it. I could dispute any part of this fake BS case, so I am not getting why it has continued. In my eyes the entire judicial system is a big FRAUD! Basically I am saying that everyone involved and not doing something about it is COMPLICIT. Nothing great here dear.

THE BOP IS A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION. MANY PRISONERS DIE UNDER BOP CUSTODY. BEING UNDER A SAMS
LIKE PAUL BERGRIN IS NOT A HEALTHY SITUATION. YOU MIGHT WANT TO EXPLAIN TO US VICKY WHAT
CAN HAPPEN TO PAUL WITH TIME IF HE STAYS LIKE THIS UNDER A SAMS.

Vicky Gallas said...

Remember when I made a statement that I believed the government had a kill list? We discussed this in comments on another post long ago. I didn't mean that they shoot people in the head, although they do that elsewhere too, but I meant that's why he was designated to Florence ADMAX and placed under SAMs. The location because it's easy for the government to control an inmate's medical care, or lack of care, and the SAMs because it prevents Paul from discussing it with anyone. Why do you think I was surprised and happy when I knew Paul was alive?

These people are all aware that extensive time in solitary confinement has adverse consequences for mental and physical health. They are aware that it's a slow death if they can hold the inmate in the situation without treating medical problems for an extensive period of time. They're aware that many inmates commit suicide, especially in ADX Florence! They give themselves awards for following government orders so well and if Paul died, they would hide it for as long as they could!

I love you sweetie and your intentions are good, but wake-up! They are trying to kill Paul, but slowly. They're all complicit, from the Newark USAO to BOP to staff at Florence ADMAX.

Vicky Gallas said...

I am compelled to add that our government and its actors and agents do shoot people in the head, torture them, bomb them, and otherwise causes their deaths elsewhere for the sake of clarity here. Read the Maximum Hypocrisy post and you will know that Paul witnessed some of this while in Iraq.

Vicky Gallas said...

For more information on the subject of solitary confinement, scroll to "LAWS, COURT CASES, AND TESTIMONY" on the link below. With Paul Bergrin the situation is x10 because he's in the worst unit of the worst facility operated by the US government anywhere. Could be the worst place operated by any government, but I don't know specifics on other countries' horrifying facilities.

Vicky, my name is Frank Primerana and am a retired Special Agent. After I left government service, I did some criminal defense work. I worked with Paul when he was in private practice. I know Paul fairly well. I would be happy to help in any way that I can. Email me and perhaps we can chat. Thanks

Anonymous said...

Frank, I remember calling you on behalf of Paul a few years ago. He was asking if
you could send him some money for commissary. You said you would but you did not.
Today, Paul is under a Sams or special administrative measures, which means that only his direct family can send him commissary. Personally, I send him books because
he is locked in several hours per day at ADMAX. Paul loves reading and it brings him some distraction. Maybe you could do the same and send Paul thrillers or detectives stories or anything that would be accepted by the prison. I am sure he will enjoy. Vicky can give you the prison address or you can check it out on the
inmate locator.
Do the best you can, Marie Christine.
