(NECN) - There's a strange reunion of sorts set for Monday in the trial against Boston mobster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. Attorney Margaret McLean, Bulger trial insider, joins us from outside of federal court in Boston.

This is a big day for the government, McLean says. They want Martorano to point at Whitey Bulger in court and say ‘he was the ruthless leader of the Winter Hill gang.’

McLean says Martorano received only 12 years in jail for over 20 murders, in what was a sweetheart deal in exchange for saying whatever the government wants him to say. Therefore, he will point that finger at Whitey Bulger, McLean says.

“Johnny Martorano will say whatever the government wants him to say,” she says.

McLean also says it will be a sword fight, with J.W. Carney getting right in there and getting some points for the defense.

“We’ll see cross examination like we’ve never seen before. It’s going to be a sword fight. We’re going to see some blood,” she says.

Will there be any reaction from Bulger?

He’s been stoic so far, except for cracking a smile during Dick O’Brien’s testimony Friday.

McLean thinks ‘we’re going to get some cold-blooded murderous stares out of Whitey Bulger’ Monday.
