We can only assume that this information has to do with the classified FBI documents being sought by Angela Clemente, a forensic analyst who spent the past 15 years researching the FBI's relationship with mob turncoats. (ANGELA CLEMENT IS NOT OUR SOURCE REGARDING THE NEW INFORMATION.)
According to our source, who would only speak on the condition of anonymity, the documents will prove that two high-level mobsters, one with the Colombos and one with the Gambinos, were high-level informants for the FBI.
Assertions about the Gambino mobster have been published in the past but have been largely overlooked and considered FBI misinformation. As for the identity of the Colombo mobster, we're still reeling.
The two mobsters are high-level, holding boss/underboss positions. The alleged Gambino informant is deceased, the Colombo chieftain is still alive.

Clemente knows this because the two ratted on each other.
Furthermore, this kind of activity -- turncoats committing violent crimes including murder while working for the Feds -- is ongoing.
We spoke with Clemente after learning that she'd won her second lawsuit against the FBI.
This time, the ruling regards the pace of access to classified documents regarding alleged systemic corruption between FBI agents and Scarpa, as well as other mob turncoats.
Clemente is suffering from a terminal illness, she noted in filings, and because of this, she needs swifter access to classified FBI documents. Also, the amount of material she has to examine has vastly expanded. The FBI revised upward the number of pages it has that are related to turncoats of interest. The initial figure of 1,420 pages now includes an additional 30,000 pages.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan responded by ruling that Clemente deserve access to 5,000 pages a month from the FBI, versus the 2,000 pages a month that the agency was willing to provide.
Judge Thomas Hogan's decision can be found here.
Clemente has waged a campaign to prove that the government had a hand in up to 39 murders committed in New York by turncoat gangsters who were on the payroll. She expects to find additional cases of murders as well as additional cases of turncoats who committed violent crimes while under their FBI handler's purview.
A major focus of her investigation has been FBI Special Agent Roy Lindley DeVecchio and others at the FBI, whom she alleged actively aided or were complicit in covering up murders and additional crimes that Scarpa and other informants committed.
DeVecchio was charged with aiding and abetting four murders in 2006, but the judge dismissed the case after it was revealed that the prosecution's chief witness, Scarpa's wife Linda, lacked credibility.
Speaking to Cosa Nostra News, Clemente revealed that she's "been able to determine... that the FBI positively knew that their informants Frank Sparaco and Gregory Scarpa were committing murders" because the turncoats were ratting out each other.
Clemente also said that FBI agent Christopher Favo was handler to a turncoat who had committed murders.
Other revelations Clemente found: a document showing Scarpa was ordered to pay income tax as an FBI employee, which he never did; as well as another written order to Scarpa not to commit any crimes, which was signed by DeVecchio.
Through her extensive interviews and examination of classified documents Clemente has obtained key information that helped congress in a wide range of cases, including Islamic terrorism, the Kennedy assassination and James "Whitey" Bulger, who many view as the Boston corollary to New York's Scarpa. The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General used Clemente's work when it developed and implemented sweeping changes on informant practices in September 2005.
Bulger was tipped off about a pending arrest and disappeared for decades. He was finally arrested in 2011, and by 2013 was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for 19 murders, as well as racketeering and other crimes.
Many questions remain. Perhaps the largest one regards the extent of federal and local police corruption that aided Bulger's ability to become the top mobster in New England.
A documentary film has been made about the case. “Whitey v. the United States” was named a Sundance Official selection. Director/producer Joe Berlinger's other film credits include "Paradise Lost," "Brother's Keeper," and "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster."
The film premiered in Boston on January 30th at the Coolidge Theater. Afterwards Clemente took part in a panel discussion in which she spoke about her work.
She told us that the FBI's coddling of murderous mob turncoats is still going on today. "This is not a closed chapter... I am still working on correcting it."
