Michele McPhee and the Five Pressure Cookers

In a recent report award-winning journalist Michele McPhee, who has already become famous for her investigative reporting in the Tsarnaev case and is now a fancied candidate for the Pulitzer price, has dropped another bombshell: Katherine Russell, the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, purchased five pressure cookers in a Macy's store on February 23, 2013 when she accompanied her husband.

The couple was recorded by a surveillance camera at Macy's, buying various kitchen appliances. The FBI issued a search warrant on May 3, 2013, and the search was executed on May 5, 2013. So much is already known. The search warrant included "a five-quart perforated colander, an eleven-inch teal-colored frying pan, and an eleven-inch stainless steel frying pan, all of which are Martha Stewart brand products."

The shocking news revealed by McPhee is that the search warrant didn't include a pressure cooker. Given that the five pressure cookers were certainly the most voluminous and striking items among the various kitchen appliances, the FBI's omission to not look for a pressure cooker in Tsarnaev's home leads to the compelling conclusion that the Tsarnaevs must have installed a mole inside the FBI to sabotage the investigation. This throws a completely new light on the case and will probably impact the ongoing trial against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
