WHO IS ALAN FUTERFAS? DONALD TRUMP JR. HIRES WHITE COLLAR CRIME LAWYER IN RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

…..a Google search of Futerfas’s name also turns up a number of articles about his work on mob-linked cases.

The attorney was involved in court proceedings involving members of the Colombo crime family, which is one of the so-called Five Families that have been prominent in New York for decades. According to The New Yorker, Futerfas famously learned that hitman Gregory Scarpa was secretly informing FBI agent Lindley DeVecchio—and therefore had purposefully worked “to create and further a divisive conflict which would enable the FBI, to make, it hoped, dozens of arrests and convictions,” as Futerfas alleged in a 1994 appeal.

Futerfas also represented Alfonse Russo, a descendant of another crime family, who as a teenager in 1998 was convicted of beating a black man in a racially motivated attack.
