Notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger insists he was never an FBI informant, but paid agents for information, according to a jailhouse telephone conversation with his brother last September that was recorded by authorities.
“I bought [expletive] information; I didn’t sell it,” Bulger, 83, said during the Sept. 11, 2012, call to his brother, John, from the Plymouth County Correctional Facility. “I never gave them [expletive] information. Nothin’. Nothin’.”
