CONSPIRACY & CAREER CRASH: WAS BOSTON GANGSTER WHITEY BULGER THE VICTIM OF A SET-UP? WAS MEGYN KELLY SIMPLY A SITTING DUCK AT THE PEACOCK NETWORK?

Questions swirl about why prison officials transferred notorious mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger to one of the most dangerous prisons in America. "He was set-up to be murdered," declares former gangster Larry Lawton, who spent 11 years in some of the toughest federal prisons in the United States.

The attackers who killed Bulger, 89, at a high-security federal prison in West Virginia tried to cut out his tongue, "All Rise" reveals — as startling new details about the legendary mafia boss' final moments come to light. 

Bulger was beaten beyond recognition in the fatal attack. In the world of organized crime, cutting out the tongue is a popular punishment for people who snitch or cooperate with law enforcement officials.

The mobster — who ruled Boston’s criminal underground for more than 20 years and stayed on the run for another 16 before his capture — died a day after he was transferred there from another facility.

"(It was) total negligence ... they (the prison system) sentenced him to death," declares Larry Lawton, who spent 11 years in some of the toughest federal prisons in the United States.

Plus: Is it possible Megyn Kelly was set up after network brass realized she was never a fit for NBC?

"All Rise" explores that question and more amid a tumultuous legal battle that began when she defended blackface Halloween costumes, causing massive backlash that led her to apologize. Now she is demanding big bucks to leave the network.

"It all comes down to who will blink first … and in light of the ugly information ... my bet is NBC will blink," attorney Richard Roth tells host Dylan Howard.
