Congressman Says He Knows of No Immunity for Mobster Whitey Bulger

Whitey Bulger

By O’Ryan Johnson
Boston Herald

BOSTON — The Indiana congressman who led the 2003 federal probe of corrupt ties between James “Whitey” Bulger and the FBI said he has seen no evidence of any immunity deal with the South Boston mobster — and doubts any exists.

“I can’t remember anything that would say Whitey Bulger had carte blanche as far as immunity is concerned,” said Republican Dan Burton, past chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “I would know if that happened, and I never saw anything like that.”

Bulger’s lawyer, J.W. Carney, claimed on Monday that a deal had been struck long ago granting Bulger immunity for all charges in the indictment, including his alleged role in 19 murders. Carney said in court papers the agreement, as well as the identity of the person who made it, would be revealed in the future.

Robert D. Foley, a native of Massachusetts with a law degree, who has investigated everything from counterterrorism to gangs to drugs and police corruption, will become the new head of the Detroit FBI, Deadline Detroit has learned.

Foley is currently the special agent in charge of the Administrative Division for the FBI’s Washington Field Office. He joined the FBI in 1996.

Foley replaces Andrew Arena, who retired at the end of May to become head of the Detroit Crime Commission. Todd Mayberry, the agent who served as interim head of the Detroit division after Arena left, died earlier this month due to complications from liver cancer at age 41.

A formal public announcement on the appointment of Foley has yet to be made.

Steve Neavling

Hispanics in Arizona protested outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office, expressing concern that they’ll be subjected to racial profiling following Monday’s U.S. Supreme Court Decision, Bloomberg reports.

While the court struck down three provisions of the Arizona immigration law, the justices left intact the requirement that local police check the immigration status of anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

“People are living in fear,” said Ovalle, 32, a U.S. citizen who volunteers with Puente Movement, an immigrant-rights group in a state that has become the epicenter of the nationwide battle over illegal migration, Bloomberg reports. “It is criminalizing brown skin.”

The operation carried out by the FBI and state and local police also netted the arrests of 104 alleged pimps in cities from Sacramento to Toledo, Ohio.

Attorney: Ex-Boston Mob Boss Whitey Bulger Should Not Be Prosecuted Because of Immunity

Steve Neavling

Former Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger should not be prosecuted for 19 murders because the government promised him immunity for past and future crimes when he was an FBI informant, his lawyer argued Monday, the Washington Post reports.

Attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said he plans to urge the judge to dismiss the charges because his client had blanket immunity.

But Carney is asking U.S. District Court Judge Richard Stearns to recuse himself because he will be a witness during the motion to dismiss, according to the Post report.

Also Monday, Bulger’s defense was granted a four-month delay in the trial.
