Recently discovered correspondence of late crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger, indicated the Massachusetts gangster revered president Trump and disdained special council Robert Mueller, according to The Daily Beast.
“History may show Trump was the man of the hour...Feel China respects him and hesitant to try to bully him,” Bulger wrote in 2018, hours before he was brutally beaten to death in a West Virginia Prison.
The letter was one of 75 the criminal sent to Janet Uhlar, one of the jurors who helped convict him for a string of 11 murders committed in the 1970s and 1980s. Uhlar said she thought Bulger was guilty, but that his criminal procedure was unfair, in part because of the deals prosecutors reached with the gangster’s associates.
Bugler often spoke about politics to Uhlar. In a letter written that same year the gang leader wrote, “Trump is tough and fights back instead of bowing down to pressure — and caving in to press!... the U.S. agrees with him press attacking and his reaction increases his popularity — He has my vote so far.”
In another letter he wrote, “Mueller should observe biblical saying - ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’”
Bulger, who was the brother of the former President of the Massachusetts Senate, became one of the most-wanted criminals in the country after he escaped Boston in late 1994. He was re-captured in 2011, according to the Associated Press.
