Seems about right:
Just months before he was bludgeoned to death in a West Virginia prison, notorious Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger poured his heart out in a series of letters praising President Trump (he had his vote) and criticizing Robert Mueller, whom he said should be nicer.
The 75 missives were sent to the most unusual of pen pals—a juror who helped to convict him of the 11 murders he carried out during the 1970s and 80s.
Janet Uhlar, a nurse from Cape Cod, shared the letters and photos Bulger sent her with NBC News last week. Uhlar, who says she did not doubt Bulger’s guilt, told NBC that she was troubled by how the U.S. government handled the case, especially the way they cut deals with criminals to testify in Bulger’s trial.
Bulger wrote often about politics and was particularly fond of Donald Trump, writing that he was sure history would look back favorably on the 45th president and unfavorably on former special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Sorry to hear Trump is being boxed in by so many,” Bulger wrote in 2018. “Trump is experiencing what Mueller and company can orchestrate,”
In another letter he wrote, “[Mueller] should observe biblical saying – ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’”
It’s too bad — had he survived Fred Hiatt might have hired Whitey to supplement Marc Thiessen and Hugh Hewitt.
