Whitey Bulger: I’m No Snitch!
Everything we thought we knew about Boston’s most notorious gangster, James “Whitey” Bulger, is wrong — so said his attorney, J.W. Carney, after an immunity hearing Wednesday afternoon.
Carney claims that Bulger “was never an informant to the FBI or anybody else at any time,” which begs the question: Why would “Whitey” have been granted immunity from the FBI if they weren’t getting information in return?
WBUR senior reporter David Boeri put the question to Carney, to which he responded: “We’re going to present that answer when the trial starts on June 10. If want to know what the answer is, be there.”
