Attorneys for Gangster James “Whitey” Bulger Say Judge Has Conflict of Interest

Whitey Bulger/fbi

Attorneys for the notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger said their client received immunity to commit crimes from a late federal prosecutor, the Irish Central reports.

The prosecutor, Jeremiah O’Sullivan, a former U.S. attorney, worked as a federal prosecutor at the same time as U.S. District Court Judge Richard Stearns, who is presiding over the case.

Bulger’s attorney, J.W. Carney Jr., said Stearns should recuse himself because the past working relationship with O’Sullivan constitutes a conflict of interest, the Irish Central reported.

Carney says Stearns was chief of the criminal division during a federal investigation of Bulger. But Stearns declined the request, saying he was not aware of Bulger being the target of an investigation at the time.

FBI Releases Redacted Informant Manuals In Response To FOIA
Documents obtained by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue reveal new details about the FBI’s rules of conduct for informants.

The FBI released 147 pages of heavily redacted manuals and policies related to the use of informants, in response to a FOIA request by Trentadue, who is engaged in a years-long lawsuit with the FBI over documents related to the Oklahoma City bombing.

Read the documents here

The documents pertain to unspecified training for “confidential human sources,” including chain of command, dispute resolutions and other topics. The vast majority of direct guidance to informants is redacted, including even chapter headings.

Trentadue filed a related complaint alleging that the FBI has engaged in a practice of using informants within the news media to receive advance notice of potentially unfavorable stories.

As an exhibit in that complaint, Trentadue submitted an FBI FD-302 record related to a previously reported claim that the Oklahoma City bombing had been carried out by Iraqi intelligence agents, a lead that was of dubious origin and that did not ultimately pan out. The document was previously published on INTELWIRE.

The document states the FBI received information about the Iraq allegation from “a senior official employed by ABC news for over fifteen years,” The source had been assigned an identification number and “had provided highly accurate and reliable information in the past.”

Info on informants

A lawsuit connected to the Murrah building bombing suggests that FBI informants include a number of journalists nationwide.
Jerry Bohnen October 31st, 2012

If Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue is right, there are journalists around the country who also happen to be informants for the FBI.
The battered and bruised body of Kenneth Trentadue raised the suspicions of his family.

And the journalists might not be alone. FBI informants might also be found on the White House staff, in the offices of U.S. congressmen, in the courts and among the clergy.

The allegations stem from Trentadue’s ongoing legal battle with the FBI and the Department of Justice over the August 1995 death of his brother Kenneth Trentadue, who died under mysterious circumstances in Oklahoma City’s transfer center for federal inmates.

Jesse Trentadue has long scoffed at federal authorities’ explanation that his younger brother killed himself. According to Jesse Trentaude, Kenneth died as the result of an interrogation prompted by his resemblance to an early suspect in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
