"The involvement - I was not involved directly because they didn't want me to get involved with The Outfit. They only wanted me to be involved with the family, our family. So if there was something that was going to be done for our family, I was going to be involved. If it was something done for The Outfit, I would just stay in the background."
Should there be '' .., I would be involved."? Why does the speaker use 'going to' for 'would' here?
'I would be involved' would work grammatically (as 'would' does in the last sentence). I think the speaker said 'I was going to be' in order to spell out the agreement: '[they would ensure that] I was going to be involved'.
