Did Linda McMahon Obstruct Justice? (7th in a series – Read the Full Article on the ‘Fixer’ at the McMahons’ 1994 Federal Trial)

“[Vince] would like you to call [Dr. George] Zahorian to tell him not to come to any more of our events and to also clue him in on any action that the Justice Department is thinking of taking [emphasis added].”

Linda McMahon “CONFIDENTIAL INTEROFFICE MEMO” to Pat Patterson, December 1`, 1989


“At no time did they ever charge anybody with any kind of obstruction of justice or whatever it is you were suggesting…”

World Wrestling Entertainment lawyer Jerry McDevitt to Ted Mann of New London’s The Day


In a post yesterday, I quoted from a 1995 Village Voice article that told the story of Martin Bergman, husband of Laura Brevetti, the defense attorney at the federal steroid-trafficking trial of Vince McMahon and the then World Wrestling Federation.

See “Did Linda McMahon Obstruct Justice? (6th in a Series – McMahon Defense Lawyer’s Husband Floated a $350,000 Offer to the Prosecution’s Star Witness),” https://wrestlingbabylon.wordpress.com/2010/04/11/did-linda-mcmahon-obstruct-justice-6th-in-a-series-%E2%80%93-mcmahon-defense-lawyer%E2%80%99s-husband-floated-a-350000-offer-to-the-prosecution%E2%80%99s-star-witness/.

The story tells of how “Bergman’s work has dovetailed with the interests of Brevetti” and specifically how his role in the McMahon case “raises troubling questions about Brevetti’s knowledge of, or involvement in, these questionable antics.”

With the permission of the author, William Bastone, I now have uploaded the full text of the article, which can be viewed at http://muchnick.net/bergmanarticle.pdf.

Today Bill Bastone is editor of TheSmokingGun.com, a resource of material obtained from government and law enforcement sources, via Freedom of Information requests, and from court files nationwide.
