“Nobody in this country is above the law, an FBI agent or otherwise…” – 6:21 AM 5/15/2019

Because of his limited public comments, it’s difficult to ascertain much about Durham’s prosecutorial philosophy when it comes to public corruption. In 2001, he urged reporters to talk to other people involved in the Boston mob case, not him. In 2002, he issued a brief statement after Connolly’s conviction, saying, “Nobody in this country is above the law, an FBI agent or otherwise, and ultimately the ends do not justify the means.”
But in 2018, he gave a rare speech at the University of St. Joseph. In the process of recounting the Boston mob case, he spoke to the pitfalls and the “two-edged sword” of informants.
“The damage that can be done when law enforcement or prosecutors misuse these tools is difficult to overstate,” he said. “And we unfortunately have seen it in some recent instances.”
Now Durham is charged with figuring out whether that applies here.
