Russell reveals that a friend of theirs is having trouble with an important figure.
Cut to Jimmy Hoffa, a labor union leader and the President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. While the organization was set up to serve regular workers, its history is deeply rooted in corruption and organized crime. Hoffa played his part in that.
As we can see here, Hoffa isn’t a popular man. People want him dead and they’ll happily try to assassinate him in a courtroom full of people. That said, Hoffa is calm and collected in the face of danger.
Jimmy asks Frank if he wants to be a part of history. According to the real Sheeran, Hoffa wanted John F. Kennedy dead because his brother, Bobby, was harassing him. While Sheeran claimed that he didn’t personally carry out the assassination that ended the president’s life, he did reveal that it was orchestrated by the Mafia.
