Katherine Russell/Karima Tsarnaeva Still Won’t Talk to FBI – What is She Hiding? Feds Also Think She Tampered w Evidence

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s looking more and more like Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva a/k/a Karima Tsarnaeva knew about the Boston Marathon terrorist plot cooked up by her husband and brother-in-law. Despite claims by her lawyer that she was cooperating, she still hasn’t talked to the FBI yet, and the FBI can’t get her to agree to an interview. Probably because she’s hiding something. A lot of things. The feds are now discussing subpoenaing Ms. Russell Tsarnaeva, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she asserts the Fifth Amendment.


Like many of you, I believe that Russell Tsarnaeva knew what Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were up to. I don’t believe she didn’t know about the multiple pressure cooker purchases, the planning of the sophisticated attack, the conversations between hubby and jihadist mommy, Zubeidat, and what her husband was doing for six months back in Russia. You’d have to be a moron not to know about any of these things and ask questions . . . no matter how many hours a week you claim to have worked as a home healthcare aide. Now there’s this from today’s Wall Street Journal:

U.S. authorities are investigating up to six associates of the accused Boston bombers to determine if they had any involvement in the plot or in disposing of evidence, U.S. law-enforcement officials briefed on the probe said, as investigators seek to learn more about the alleged attackers’ bomb-making. Chief among those that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are interested in questioning is Katherine Russell, alleged bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow, the officials said.

Officials are discussing a possible subpoena to try to question her, though they would prefer to negotiate a voluntary interview, the officials said. Ms. Russell’s lawyer has said she is “doing everything she can to assist with the investigation.” The lawyer didn’t respond to a request for comment on Sunday.

And there’s this from Saturday’s Wall Street Journal:

Federal agents are still investigating whether Tamerlan’s wife, Katherine Russell, and several associates of the brothers, provided unwitting assistance or knowingly assisted in any part of the alleged plot, officials briefed on the probe said. At least part of the investigation of Ms. Russell and other associates focuses on whether evidence related to the bombing investigation has been tampered with or destroyed, the officials said. . . .

Investigators are still seeking an interview with Ms. Russell. Ms. Russell’s attorney didn’t respond to a request for comment on Friday. A lawyer for Ms. Russell has previously said she is “doing everything she can to assist with the investigation.”

“Doing everything she can”? Riiiight. And if you believe that, I have some land under Boston Harbor to sell you. If you believe she knew nothing about what her relatives by marriage were planning and perpetrating, I can throw in Faneuil Hall in the sale.

The ex-girlfriend of the other brother has stated that he wanted her to be as vehemently as anti-American as he was. She woke up and broke up with him.

This woman knows something. The question is, will she rely on the right to refuse to answer questions regarding what was said in marriage, and does that “spousal immunity” exist since her husband is dead? I would argue that she can be compelled to answer questions about her husband, since he must claim the immunity, not her.

Second, if she has destroyed evidence, she is at least an accomplice after the fact.

I fully expect the government not to indict her, simply because she is a woman.

    She will be just fine.

    She will receive benefits for her daughter from Social Security because daddy died. I think it’s about $2,000 a month until adult.

    We know she is a traitor. And, we will support her 🙁

People who think women can’t be Islamic terrorists haven’t heard of the legion of female Islamic homocide bombers who perpetrated ghastly massacres during Rosh Hashana War in Israel.

NormanF on April 29, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    You mean the Yom Kippur war.

    Laura on April 29, 2013 at 4:11 pm

      No – in Israel it refers to the second intifada Arafat instigated in September 2000 that lasted almost five years. It began on Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year.

      NormanF on April 29, 2013 at 9:42 pm

Debbie, I believe you’re right about her, but the only place your argument stumbles a bit is when you say “You’d have to be a moron not to know about any of these things and ask questions . . .” So, a moron, kind of like the kind of desperate woman who would marry a loser like him?
How long until the Boston area’s true colors come out and they’re preaching acceptance and understanding of her and her parents during this “difficult time”? Watch, somebody will probably start a charity to help them.

Sean M on April 29, 2013 at 3:37 pm

If she didn’t know then I’m the King of Norway. Check her checking account to see if the pressure cookers were bought on her ATM/Debit card or a credit card linked to both names. Also, who was looking after their child when he was doing the bombings since she works full time and he didn’t?

Doctor Who Fan on April 29, 2013 at 3:37 pm

she’s pulling the old Schultz “I know no-THING!” Somebody knows something in this family and we’re entitled to find out. Perhaps we should just let the parents be interrogated by Putin? I’m willing to be he’ll find out something.

kb on April 29, 2013 at 3:52 pm

They’re repoting on other websites that Dzhokhar has told the FBI That they started running when Katherine phoned them and told them the gig is up.How is she not in jail?

Gordz on April 29, 2013 at 3:53 pm

…one simple clue source might be the bumper stickers on all the extended Tsarnaeva family vehicles, especially Uncle-onetime-CIA-husband-Ruslan…

Nick Fury on April 29, 2013 at 4:03 pm

Please be seated.

The older Jihadist brother was working for the FBI but was turned during his last trip to Chechnya. He was to provide information on Jihad activities in the Chechen area. The Russians did not know this but they were watching his activities too. They reported some of his doings as a warning to the FBI. This was promptly ignored by the FBI since they assumed his actitvity was related to work being done for the CIA and FBI. They were wrong. He was turned.

The initial Saudi national who was tackled and suspected of involvement in the bombing may have also been involved. Mrs Obama paid him a personal visit in the hospital before he was whisked out of the country. She paid no visit to any of the injured.

Thats enough for now…

Wild Jew man on April 29, 2013 at 4:16 pm

In the picture she looks like she’s gitty but trying to appear serious.

Gordz on April 29, 2013 at 4:17 pm

The FBI took away “bags of evidence” this afternoon from her family’s RI home and she was seen with her parents and attorneys after “meeting” with the FBI.

I wouldn’t be surprised if something is actually moving forward now with this…

Doc Michaels on April 29, 2013 at 4:39 pm

Jeebus Crisco ! If this was a Tea Party or baptist church related suspect she would be prostrate and chained up n a blacked out FBI facility, being fed the cattle prod. Whaddya mean “she won’t talk??”

Good God, I’m living in watered down version of Peewee’s Playhouse ….

jack on April 29, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Now is the time to stand up and be counted. Beckel was right. No more Muslim immigration into the West — no more student visas either. American lives are at stake. No more lives should be risked in the name of political correctness. The cowards who claim to defend free speech from Sharia are pathetic. No more lives can be risked! End Muslim immigration now!

Wild Jew man on April 29, 2013 at 4:51 pm

You mean there just getting around to searching her parents place.I’m sure she left any evidence undisturb since are discovery of there deeds.Who does this family know that they can put the FBI this long.This family is really well connected.There enablers should be named and shamed.

Gordz on April 29, 2013 at 4:58 pm

Is it to early to mention….Traitor?

jake49 on April 29, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Reportedly, according to the younger Jihadi brother, Kathriene called him after the bombing and simply said, “They’re after you now.” She didn’t say, “Was that you?” or, “Were you involved?” No, she merely stated “They’re after you now.”

Use your own judgement there. Of course, this was stated by Jihadi the younger before BHO decided to have the case tried in civilian court. Jihadi boy has, accordingly, “lawyered up” now and is saying no more.

Wild Jew man on April 29, 2013 at 5:36 pm

I agree with jack,
if this had been anybody else accused of these crimes the FBI, CIA and 10 under alphabet soup agencies would have done a full anal examine on them by now.
If fact, they would have done so hours after the bombers were identified.

If I had been me, a white Christian, accused of doing the bombing and then got killed in a shoot out with the police, you can be certain that my wife would have been arrested and held until she talked.

So why are these people treated so differently?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I already know the answer.
But that doesn’t make it any less wrong and stupid.

Steve G on April 29, 2013 at 5:43 pm

I think they need to worry more about this woman than about the parents who were all the way in Russia. Maybe the mom is a nut, but I think any parent would be shocked at what the kids did and doesn’t want to accept it as the truth. At least the parents are talking. This lady won’t even say a word to reporters and I think it’s too strange that she is only speaking through a lawyer and immediately the parents hire a lawyer. Even if she did know nothing, there is such an arrogance in not wanting to say a word publicly. The victims deserve closure and I think her openly addressing the situation would have been a lot better than only talking through a lawyer and escaping questions from reporters. The mother even said no comment when they asked her about the house being up for sale. Pathetic!

E on April 29, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    Only someone with the arrogant ignorance of ‘E’asy Target would believe this Moooooslima is to be worried about more than the Jihadi parents snuggled safely in their brutal Islamic hellhole. Sounds like someone faking it like old P’Shaw did at first. FAIL!

    So cute how this dope (who married a Moooslim) is gonna have sympathy for Jihadi nutter Mum, too, due to losing one of her sons to allah. The Mum who clearly said no matter what they do to her Jihad sons that she can always say “Allahu Akbar”.

    I want the revert-er who married the Jihadi nailed and persecuted to the fullest extent of the law but who is gonna be niqab deep in Jihad more…the moronic fool who reverted to Islam and married a raging Jihadi or one born into it in Chechnya and also raised two raging Jihadi sons?

    Also, some clarity is needed here. I saw pictures of Michelle Antoinette Obama-Putin in the hospital with other victims but I have yet to see a pic of her with the Saudi National (not that I don’t believe it because I do but I have yet to see a pic).

    I did tweet the story in Arabic that alleged she visited the Saudi in hospital with the 2123B designation BUT I have yet to see a picture. I think we will all be better served if we have the facts on our side so I am willing to listen to those who know what I don’t at this time.

    Skunky on April 29, 2013 at 6:34 pm

One last piece of info…. the Saudi thought to be involved initially (and likely was) had both of his hands severely burned. Gee, I wonder how that happened? hmmm…

Later D.

Wild Jew man on April 29, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    WJM, why haven’t you heard of the intrigue about Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi? The Lesbionic Woman lying about him to Congress, his 2123B designation, his designation as “armed & dangerous” and his deep, familial ties to Jihadi Alharbi’s the Mooooslim world over?

    Nobody knows if and when he was deported yet.

    But you are correct to know that he’s not that innocent (with apologies to dopey Britney Spears…)

    Skunky on April 29, 2013 at 6:40 pm

I’d suggest waterboarding her. Too bad that we’ve lost Syria as one of the places where we could get it done.

Nobody on April 29, 2013 at 6:58 pm

Skunky, genius, she was the one living with him! Oh and look what happened today, they found a woman’s dna on the bomb. The FBI went to her home and took a DNA sample. BTW, she was the one asking Tamerlan if he was praying on Skype. Tamerlan also radicalized his mother, making her put on a hijab. Prior to that, the mom was dressing normal and even working on male clients in a spa.

E on April 29, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    LOL, ‘E’asy Target. You had better read my post over again. You just made yourself look even more retarded than you already are.

    HINT~It’s not about living with the Jihadi bomber. It’s about who is more dangerous and YOU picked and stated the wife over seasoned Mama Jihad. DUH!!!!!

    Thank you for helping me prove my point you brainbox!

    Skunky on April 29, 2013 at 8:27 pm

She could be afraid for her life and the lives of her relatives. We’re kidding ourselves if we think there isn’t underground jihad cells in the USA. Correction, they’re all fighting jihad. I was talking about the button men/women.

Rick on April 29, 2013 at 8:02 pm

If people think that Katherine aka Karina aka terrorist babymama didn’t know what her scumbag husband was up to then I have a New RIver Gorge Bridge to sell them. Like others have said this cow called the two nitwits and told them to be on the lookout for the authorities. Other questions need to be answered such as why did it take so long to search her parent’s home. Also they do need to follow the money to see who purchased the pressure cookers, ball bearings etc.

Ken b on April 29, 2013 at 10:01 pm

How they let her possibly destroy evidence? She warned the suspects by calling them instead of police. That´s why a policeman is dead and another one in critical condition. She is quilty to those at least!

Why isn´t she already behind bars?

Hope the new dna evidence will put her in jail where she belongs.

da plot thickens…

ebayer on April 30, 2013 at 3:55 am

This evidence gathering from Katherine Russell’s home has probably been delayed for far too long to be of any use. She has had days to dispose of evidence, or at least tamper with it. Katherine Russell is a profoundly foolish and evil creature. She had every reason and opportunity to dump Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but declined to do so. Katherine Russell could not have possibly supported herself and her non-working hubby on what she made unless she had a section 8 housing voucher. Also, if this woman had actually worked for 70-80 hours a week for $12 an hour, she would have been legally ineligible for most public welfare benefits(welfare fraud?). Katherine Russell, if found culpable, deserves a long prison sentence without the possibility of parole. A 25 year sentence would be suitable.

Worry01 on April 30, 2013 at 4:27 am

She is lying to protect the Islam.

She is Islam.

She would have been honor killed if she was not.

Panhandle on April 30, 2013 at 11:54 am

The FBI should grap her by the nape and bring her in, period. She could know about other planned or potential bombings.

Pray Hard on April 30, 2013 at 12:30 pm

sooner or later we will have to kill all the ragheads or they will kill us but the prognazi will have to go first because i don’t want to live in the socialist utopia of next tuesday.

bruce on April 30, 2013 at 3:49 pm

Thank you for saying what the media seems to not be saying. It is incomprehensible that Katherine Tsarnaeva (as her marriage license says) did not know anything. She knew enough to immediately find her way home to her estranged family’s home and the legal support their money could provide. I like others don’t understand why she was not taken in immediately for questioning even prior to the end of the search. We gave her time to tamper with evidence and to strategize. This would have played out differently if she was someone else.

us citzizen on May 1, 2013 at 7:49 am

Well, I think this is a bit premature.

How many wives and parents of Serial Killers had a clue about what their Husband/Children were up to? Not many.

Serial Killer Gacy had dead bodies under the floor of his house and his wife never suspected a thing.

It’s really helpful and you’re simply naturally very knowledgeable of this type. You get exposed my eyes to numerous views on this specific topic together with intriquing, notable and sound content material.
