THE PELICAN TAPES: SUPER HOLLYWOOD LAWYER BERT FIELDS CAUGHT IN PROBE
Famed Hollywood attorney Bert Fields has been questioned by the FBI in connection with a grand jury probe of techniques and practices by Anthony 'Pelican' Pellicano, onetime private investigator to the stars.
Now in the possession of the FBI are an astounding 2 billion double-spaced pages of text which was gleaned from Pellicano computer files.
Included in those 2 billion pages, DRUDGE has learned, are alleged wiretap transcripts.
Last month, Pellicano pleaded guilty to illegally possessing C-4 plastic explosives and two modified hand grenades.
According to Thursday runs of DAILY VARIETY, Fields, who has used Pellicano on a number of matters over the years, stressed that he has no knowledge of whether Pellicano had done illegal wiretaps and that he had never authorized any such activity. Fields said that some months ago, FBI agents showed up at his office to question him about Pellicano and that he received a subpoena to testify before a grand jury, but that he was later told it was not necessary for him to appear.
The Feds have interviewed entertainment people on both coasts, sources tell DRUDGE REPORT, in what appears to be a dramatic expansion of the Pelican probe.
