UPDATE 4/30/2015 at 5:02 p.m. Central: According to Federal Court Order Appoint Special Master, Federal Judge Clark Waddoups “finds it appropriate and necessary to appoint Magistrate Judge Pead as a post-trial special master” to investigate allegations that at least one FBI agent engaged in witness tampering as described in the article below, published Dec. 16, 2014. The Oklahoma City Bombing trial drama continues!
FBI Agent Adam Grant Quirk was arrested over the weekend following an alleged fight with his girlfriend. Why am I interested? Because Quirk, 36, is the same agent accused of telling a key witness to take a vacation in order to avoid testifying during the little-reported Oklahoma City Bombing trial continues to make its way through federal court in Salt Lake City.
As I reported Aug. 10, a man scheduled to testify in federal court claimed Agent Quirk had called him several times, telling him that it would be best for everyone if he did not testify, according to a document submitted by attorney for the plaintiff in the case, Jesse C. Trentadue v. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Allegations of bad behavior on the part of FBI officials, including Quirk, resulted in Judge Clark Waddoups threatening to hold FBI officials in contempt in November and in the plaintiff’s attorney asking the judge earlier this month to appoint a Special Master to investigate allegations of FBI witness tampering.
UPDATE 2/24/2015 at 6:45 p.m. Central: The FBI agent alleged to be involved in witness tampering has made the news again.
