Feds Scoff at ‘Whitey’ Bulger’s Claims He Had Immunity to Kill
Federal prosecutors slammed mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s claims the government gave him immunity to kill, the Boston Herald reports.
“Put simply, someone who thought he had immunity would not pay a corrupt FBI agent thousands of dollars in cash, as Stephen Flemmi has admitted that he and Bulger paid to John Connolly,” the feds state in court papers filed Wednesday.
Feds said it’s laughable that any law enforcement officials would allow someone to go on a murder spree with no consequences, the Boston Herald wrote.
Bulger’s attorney also says he need more time to examine heaps of evidence, including 366,000 pages of documents, wiretaps, phone calls and videos.
