John Connolly on the Conspiracy of the Whitey Bulger Trial

“The Justice Department is going to do everything within its power to try to make sure the full story never comes out,” Connolly told the Daily Beast by phone from the clink in Chipley, Fla., where he’s doing 40 years. Connolly said he hopes that Bulger’s apprehension will lead to his own conviction being overturned. “My lawyers have information that since Bulger was brought in, he spoke to FBI agents and told them I had nothing to do with tipping him off [about a pending federal indictment]. And he told them I had nothing to do with this murder in Florida, not one damn thing.” [The Daily Beast]
