"Now I Have a Target," Junior Gotti Says

REVISED SLIGHTLY: A preview video, from John A. "Junior" Gotti's website, refers to the 302 "proffer memo" released in George Anastasia's Gotti's Rules: The Story of John Alite, Junior Gotti, and the Demise of the American Mafia (now available in the UK) as well as charges made by Gotti and his attorney previously regarding an FBI agent.

Gotti is discussing the 302 in reference to a larger effort to discover who was behind an alleged "Get Gotti" campaign supposedly run by an FBI agent. Peter Lance writes about the campaign in the book's forward.

This is the second preview video. In the first video Junior discussed his reasons for writing his book, Shadow of My Father.



As we noted previously, Gotti and attorney Charles Carnesi have claimed that Junior's fourth RICO trial was the result of an overzealous law enforcement official with an agenda. He was either out to get Junior for personal reasons or was seeking to capitalize on the publicity of the Gotti name.

Part of the charges included a newspaper reporter. Carnesi previously said, "Some agent intimately involved in the case must have had a relationship with a New York Post reporter... she starts writing a series of articles with revelations she alleges are coming from a law enforcement source."

[The excerpts to Gotti's book.]

“So we go into court and we challenge Kati Cornell Smith to disclose the source of the leaks, believing that they came from Ted Otto. She invokes the New York Shield Law which protects reporters’ sources. But when asked if she does have a ‘law enforcement source,’ she affirms under oath that her story is truthful in that regard."
There's an Alite in this picture, but not in this story, Gotti said...

Gesturing at a number of pages tacked to a cork-board behind and above him, Gotti said, "These are all our letters and filings that we've done since 2006 asking various individuals from the US Attorney to the Attorney General that there is wrongdoing going on in our case, mainly by a case agent. That there's wrongdoing going on here. I've been demanding a hearing since 2006. I never ran away from this. But I wanted a hearing about it. How it got there, to the press, the content, everything, the whole kit and caboodle."

He added, "Back then, as you know there is a shield law... [meaning] "Well someone whispered in my ear and I don't know how it got there." [unintelligible]

"Now, thanks to this guy, who is really not very bright, he's proud as a peacock. This gets leaked by an agent, we believe we know who. He's got his name on the bottom and he gives it to the book and says "Yeah, it's me, it's me, it's me." Well, now I have a target. Now he just gave me a target. Because now it starts with him and now I get to the bottom of all my troubles since 2006, I can get to the bottom of it right now."

  1. John Alite is still in touch with street guys who have not flipped?

  2. First I personally think only a moron would believe that John Gotti Jr didnt have a close personal relationship with John Alite and the reasons are obvious but for those who may have not know John Alite first born sons godfather is none other than John Gotti Jr and if John Alite was such a garbage pail then why have him in Victoria Gottis wedding party. Wouldnt her father have to approve of all people in such a big and public event? Why knock the guy for writing a book when John Gotti Jr is doing the same and why is John Alite the only one being labeled a rat when at Ronnie Trucchios trial in Tampa his opening statement is John Alite is the perpetrator of these crimes not me. Is that not a rat move and a breach of omerta? John Gotti had proffer sessions with the feds and implicated Joe Watts and Danny Marino which is a rat move as well. At the end of the day it seems to me that the people around the Gottis realized that the standard the Gottis held them to they did not follow themselves and therefore they realized spending the rest of their lives in jail for people at the end of the day who did not care about them would be a dumb thing to do. John Carneglia was picked up on a wire stating he wanted to pled guilty to the charges he was facing for selling heroin and was told he could not despite being offered a seven year deal so he does as John Gotti Sr wished and he got 50 nyears along with Gene Gotti and both of then are slated to be released in 2018 after doing 28 years. Who is worth doing 21 extra years in hell for surely not the Gottis who in retrospect John Sr was the absolute worst thing for organized crime. John Alite should not be ridiculed by the Gottis when the are doing the same things proffer sessions, movies, tv shows, rap albums, etc. Their past have become entertainment and profitable for them so what is good for Gotti is good for Alite both have left countless victims who nobody cares to hear from but at least Alite has admitted he was an asshole why wont John Jr own his past I commend them both for leaving that bullshit life.

  4. Would that not be a breach of omerta? Socializing with a known stoolie. In Al D Arcos book he touches on made guys hanging out with known rats in the joint if those rats were useful to them. Hypocrisy at its finest

  5. Yes. He's in touch with A LOT of guys -- these are guys who quite the mob after doing heavy time. They never flipped but they are not a part of the mob anymore (or so they tell me -- I doubt one would say, Yes, i'm still in the mob). Alite is not only friends with them -- when I speak to them or meet them they tell me they love the guy. He's saved lives (in addition to ending some). Even a guy Alite shot doesn't have a bad word to say about him. I asked him if he was mad at Alite and he acted like I was nuts.... (Ozoneman knows what I'm talking about). I met Alite, he's a cool guy. He flipped.... whatever.... if you know people in that life you realize it's not what it was cracked up to be and they understand the situation Alite was in. (As I've written about it on here.) It's not black and white to everyone like one would think.

  8. I especially like the comment made by John Gotti Jr of who would be next to comment on his life The Gardener?. The gardener does not hang out at your fathers social club and is not in your sisters wedding and is not present in midtown with you when your photo is taken. IDK who am I to say but from what i have viewed John Jr has not made me disbelieve what John Alite has said in his book or in interviews. It seems he is very interested in discrediting Alite so why not sit down in an uncontrolled setting and have an unscripted Q&A session with this site.

  11. I remember hearing a wiretap with Fat Dom on it I believe but do not recall the second guy. I am pretty sure Gravano will be getting out here in a couple years. Wondering if he will appear on mob wives lol

  12. Hey Ed I was wondering as you are a writer why a book has never been done on the Persicos as a family or even just about Carmine. In my opinion it seems there would be a ton more history and documentation on them as any other mafia figure worthy of having a book written about them as individuals or their respective families. Carmines legal history alone goes back to what 1949 or 1950 when himself and his brother Alphonse were booked for murder. I know he has only spent a couple years since 1972 outside of the BOP but seems to be just as important as any of his peers who have had books written about them. And also I am not sure but another guy despite being inside for the same amount of time is Herbie Sperling who has a hell of alot of interesting history behind his story. Just a thought. Thanks

  13. And Karen on Mob Wives tonight said her dad wasn't involved, he took the fall for her and Gerard.... He called her from prison but we couldn't here the conversation... Karen also said when he gets out he's got some "unfinished business" to take care of in New York....

  14. I can see that the Mexicans and Russians are big players now but what about the Five Family's
    Of NYC don't they still run NYC and Jersey with an iron fist. Lastly what about Ndrangheta dont they want a piece of the action in America

    ReplyDelete
  15. Really I dont know much about him other than from what I have read is that he was a force to be reckoned with in Queens. More has been written about his son Alphonse and I think he has another son as well but have not heard anything about him either way. I hope he is successful with his appeal.

  16. Karen Gravano is a fool and I understand she loves her father but the facts are after ridiculing John Gotti Sr on dateline and in his book in 97 he is caught on wiretaps with his whole family blatantly talking about drug deals he was conducting out in AZ. It has been alleged by more than one turncoat that he was always involved in drugs but the fbi would not validate these accusations for fear the conviction they got with his testimony would be overturned. And he probably does have unfinished business in New York and I am sure he appreciates Karen letting the public as well as the law know in advance so they can pop him again lol.

  17. Regarding Jr saying he now has a target, wouldnt the target be himself as he said the things that were printed on the proffer agreement document. Why not piss and moan at the same time and demand to know who gave Fritsy Giovanelli the information he got from an unknown law enforcement source and passed on aiding members of the mob

  18. stevie was good friends with Ronnie at one time

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's why Gaspipe was shoved into a hole for life; he alleged the government didn't want to hear about his drug dealing involving Sammy the Bull. It's difficult not to believe him considering two things: how Gravano turned out and how Gaspipe had given up the "mafia cops" years before someone went after them.

  21. Yeah I remember reading as much in Gaspipes book and have seen elsewhere that guys said the same thing I remember Sal Miciotta stating the same. Is Gas not in the federal prison system anymore? On the BOP inmate locator page it reads that his location is somewhere in Kansas City Rrm which I guess would mean he is in a state joint? I think Gas really screwed himself for good in 98 I believe when it was found out he had corrupted correction officers in the witsec unit at Otisville and Sal Miciotta dimed him out and got a reduction in time and back in the good graces of the goverment after the feds dumped him for lying. The mafia cops wow that is a scary thought to know those guys were once policing neighborhoods in NYC I know a few guys have gotten big settlements from the city due to being set up by Louie Eppolito and falsely imprisoned for decades. The Good Rat by Jimmy Breslin is a great read that covers those two assholes and also goes in depth about Burt Kaplan the guy who ended up sinking them at their trial. And how did Cristy Tick get out I thought life in the federal system meant you die there?

  22. I know the gambinos are primarily controlled by sicilian counterparts and maybe the bonannos, but dont they even have an american boss. And who is the third family robinson speaks of being controlled by sicilians?

    ReplyDelete
  23. The majority of the top guys in the Bonanno family are Americans and absolutely no case can be made for Sicilian control of the Genovese, Lucchese or Colombo families so in my opinion that part of Robinsons story is false. Ed maybe you know what he's talking about there?

    ReplyDelete
  24. this is also what i wanna know more then this other bullshit

    ReplyDelete
  25. I only know of the two. The third I believe is the Decavalcantes, and the author incorrectly deemed them as one of the five. The mob is much smaller. I've been all over Queens and Brooklyn, Bath Beach, Bay Ridge, Graves End, etc. Those neighborhoods are dominated by other ethnicities, Middle Eastern and Asian, primarily but others. I doubt many of them can speak English so how's a mobster gonna walk in and ask for protection money? Wherever they are you don't see them sitting around in public smoking cigars and wearing suits. They may live in all the boroughs but they're keeping the lowest of profiles, probably operating in New Jersey, Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island. Bonannos owned many nightclubs on Long island, used a big hotel out on Eastern Long Island for making ceremonies. That's all gone. I think they need to find serious wannabe businessmen to conduct business with because if they muscle their way in I don't believe people would hesitate to call law enforcement. The Mob also my be reaping its sowing of guys who've "never done anything." Meaning killing. We haven't had a bona fide mob hit in years, really. Maybe all the shooters are gone. Turncoats don't relocate anymore, even! The Sicilian factor makes sense in a lot of ways.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Gambinos and Bonannos have Zips in them. They may not by recognized as holding high-ranking positions in those families but they could easily be operating under the two families flags.

    ReplyDelete
  27. They Calabrians are involved with the Gambino and Bonanno families, in the drug business.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Alite is free and clear of past crimes as per his agreement. He can talk about what he did because he can't be prosecuted. And I know he's all over Queens every day. He even wants me to write where he can be found on a daily basis to show he doesn't fear anyone. I won't do that though. Junior can still be prosecuted, so as truthful as his book etc may be he can't tell the entire truth because he could be prosecuted. I've also heard and read on social media Junior is going to be giving high-profile interviews soon. Probably to promote his book but maybe to highlight his effort to uncover wrongdoing involving his trials.
