Real life sourcesEdit
Senator Kane could be based on U.S. Senator John McClellan as the trial that Michael was going through is based on the Valachi Hearings, also known as the McClellan Hearings. During these hearings McClellan investigated organized crime activities across America. Frank Pentangeli's testimony is also based on that of Joe Valachi's which took place at the McClellan Hearings.
