Two conservative political operatives charged with misleading voter robocalls
"In August people in Detroit who were registered voters the trait is majority Democrat city. It's nearly eighty percent African, American registered voters in Detroit this summer. who had phone numbers in the three one three Detroit area code. They started getting calls that kind of seemed like crimes. And I'm going to play the call for you here. I will tell you before I play it that it is what you're about to hear on this call is unmitigated Bo Punky none of this is true but this is the call slash crime that went out to detroiters this summer. I'm. Not Ninety nine. Founded by Jack Berkman and Jacob. ooh. Mandarin voting found great but they do know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be other public they that will be leaked assignments to track down. So worn and being used a credit card companies to collect outstanding debt the city even pushing. For they've only to try people for mandatory. I'll be connected door formation for the main. State. Where both by. Wear vote by mail. Vote by mail, your personal information is going to be given to the police to track you down for any old warrants and your personal information will be given to credit card companies to track you down for any old debt, and then the CDC is going to use that information. If you vote by mail to hunt you down and make you take mandatory vaccines that you don't want. Right that's all horse hockey. None of that is true voting by mail in Michigan doesn't actually put your personal information out there anywhere registering the vote means registering to vote but beyond that, how you vote doesn't matter at all. But when Sandra McNeill, on WWe, in Detroit got that recording of call they started looking into it. See if it was a one offer to see if this is more widespread thing. They started looking into it. So did the State Attorney General and the Michigan Secretary of State and those state officials held a press conference and they took the unusual step of releasing the audio recording of that call. So that other people who might have received, it would recognize it but also I think to put people on notice that this was misinformation and if you get this, this is not only wrong. This is potentially a crime they gave a stern public warning saying they're working to find out who was sending these absolutely false calls full of disinformation trying to intimidate voters they asked for members of the public to let them know if they too had received a call like this record, the call record, the date, and time you received it record any identifying information that came in with the call on your caller, id or anything like that. Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel warned that it is a felony under Michigan Law to deter or otherwise disrupt a person attempting to vote. So they went big with it. They basically said in that press conference five or so weeks ago you know listen you're targeting mostly black registered voters to dump all this disinformation on them to try to stop them voting by mail the you may think this is cute but this is illegal in this state and we're coming for you. Well today they made good on that threat tonight Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel has announced felony charges that have been filed against the two men whose names were listed at the beginning of that call. They have publicly denied having anything to do with this call. They've said, this must be some liberal group trying to make them look bad. It should be noted that callers received these calls also got caller ID messages saying the calls for coming from one of the two men's phone numbers. these guys are are trump supporters and conservative activists with a history of making flamboyant false claims at one point during the special counsel's investigation Robert Muller's office released a public statement announcing that they had referred these guys to the FBI after multiple women came forward to say that these guys had offered them money to make up sexual assault allegations against Robert. Muller. They referred them to the FBI for that. I. Wonder Whatever happened to that FBI referral. These gentleman also fabricated sexual assault allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buddha judge in the heat of the Democratic primary that allegation fell apart when the person they put forward to make those charges against people to judge publicly recanted and admitted that it wasn't true and publicly explained that these guys had put him up to it. They also tried to fabricate sexual assault allegations against Dr Anthony FAUCI. Seriously they offered cash rewards anybody who would say they heard Joe Biden using racial epithets right. These guys are a peach of a pair and they have been doing this kind of stuff to try to boost the trump campaign and to boost the trump presidency they've been doing it for a long time now apparently with impunity. But now they are facing multiple felony charges in Michigan Four felony charges all related to the election crime of intimidating voters. With a maximum total jail time of I think twenty four years in prison. But here's what's particularly interesting here. The investigation sparked by the Michigan authorities deciding that they were going to go big and go public with this turned up the fact that this wasn't just a local thing that had happened to one or two people. It wasn't even a Michigan specific attack turns out the calls out all over I. It was a Chicago Alter woman a local official in Chicago who alerted the board of elections there that she too had received this racist robocall. At her home in Chicago. Then it was people in Pittsburgh, and in Philadelphia who all said, they got this excuse me this same call. When Attorney General Dana Nessel of Michigan announced these felony charges today she said, the her office conferred with the Attorney General in Illinois or Chicago is and in Pennsylvania where Philly in Pittsburgh are but she says, she also conferred with the Attorneys Journal in New York and in Ohio because it turns out these calls have been going out to majority black districts registered voters in majority black districts all over the country in all in announcing these charges today the Michigan Attorney General's office estimates that eighty five, thousand of these calls have gone out. Just in the past few weeks trying to terrify black voters into not voting by mail at. Eighty, five thousand mostly black voters getting these calls saying if you vote by mail the CDC's going to put you on a list for mandatory vaccination that you don't want. If you vote by mail the credit card companies are going to track you down to find all your debt. If you vote by mail, the police are coming for you. Eighty five thousand of these calls. In. Multiple States. Over a period of weeks. After Attorney General Dana Nessel announced these charges today in Michigan. She didn't interview with that reporter from Wj, who helped break this thing open from the start with that tip from a listener. Reporter Sandra McNeill she asked the AG. The question that actually has been on my mind since I first heard about this story, which is, why did these guys have the goal to use their own names on this robocall? which so obviously appears to be a crime in progress trying to intimidate voters why would you put your name on that while committing that crime that's like robbing a bank and handing your real business card everybody might have witnessed it. Attorney General Nestle told the reporter from WWe Jay in response quote I honestly think that they've gotten away with so many things for so long. They thought that no, one would do anything they thought it wouldn't matter. Turns out matters. Joining us now live from Michigan is the Great State of Michigan's attorney, General Nestle Madam Attorney General. Thank you so much for being here. Tonight know it's a busy time. For having me I really appreciate your use of the term bull hockey I've never heard that before. But they use it. Bowl puppy and horse hockey are terms of art. You're welcome to use either of them. I don't even collect commission anymore. Does ask if I've got any of that wrong or if there's any important part of this. Case that you brought today that you announced today that I've missed. Now I think it was a summation. But what I think I'd like people to know is first of all, you know, yeah, that was twelve thousand calls that were made to the state of Michigan really centralized in the city of Detroit, the three one, three area area code, which is the city of Detroit. The thing about this, that's twelve thousand calls the twelve thousand potential voters trump won the state of Michigan by just over ten thousand votes. So I mean this is incredibly impactful and what I thought about for a long time. What is the point of having all these laws on the books in regard to voter suppression voter intimidation threats against voters if we never actually. Enforce them and what we know about twenty six sixteen is that trump didn't win because of the people who voted for him in Michigan he wanted because of the people who didn't voted all and that is what I think. These folks are trying to accomplish trying to suppress the vote and scare people into not voting action t during the course of a global pandemic, and we're not having it in this state just absolutely neck when you accept that these individuals can be so brazen as to attach themselves personally to these phone calls and think they can just get away with it. If they think it's funny that can joke around about it behind bars as far as I'm concerned. Is there a technical reason why cases like this are hard to bring? Obviously, these gentlemen have the. Office charged today they have their names on the front of this robocalled. They've since publicly denied that they actually made the robocall and said, somebody else must have done this in their names in order to make them look bad or prank them when it comes to the technical nature of proving that these were the people who in the charges conspired to and ultimately committed these acts voter intimidation is it hard to prove? Well. Unfortunately, for Mr, role and Mr Berkman Bud year ago, and my aunt established one of the first set anti. Robo calling task forces and so we were interested at the time in political related robocalls. We were interested in those calls that are made that ended up defrauding, he will and scamming people. So we already had the technology in place. So we knew where these calls were coming from and that allowed us to work with authorities in the state of California and thanks to my good friend. Attorney General Sarah in California who assisted us in this investigation but we have compelling evidence that these individuals committed these crimes and we're quite clear and confident about who the perpetrators of these crimes were. They just obviously never thought that we would actually end up investigate and actually charge but you know voter suppression is a very serious matter as Thomas Paine so So famously stated many years ago I voting is the right upon which all other rights are dependent. So if you deprive somebody of their ability to vote you deprive him of everything else in. Life and you know this has gone on for far too long. I think many people are tired of their scams. This isn't the first time that we've investigated these guys. As you noted, there was a an incident involving judge that involved the state of Michigan, an individual who lived in the state of Michigan. So it's not the person. I've seen their names. On a piece of paper in my office. And we're tired of them coming into our state and stirring up this kind of trouble by using false and misleading statements and trying to threaten or intimidate voters.

"Flint, Michigan, decided to save money for their destitute city by changing its water supply. But in the process they left at a critical step, which led to toxic levels of lead in the drinking water, and when the issue was discovered, they made it worse by delay. Now the state of Michigan is near a settlement to compensate those injured, particularly the Children in Flint. And here to discuss the situation is Michigan attorney General Dana Nessel. So attorney General Nestle Thank you so much for being back with us. I appreciate give us a state a sense of where this negotiation is right now. Well, we have Ah, preliminary settlement in place. It still has to be approved by the court. And any time you have sort of a massive class action suit, there's a process that has to go through where Claimants have an opportunity topped in our act out. And then there's something called the fairness hearing, and that has to be approved by the court. But you know our tentative agreement that is in places that $600 million settlement. It's the largest in Michigan State history, but it also includes a lot of programming, and that really increases the amount that the state pays in total to about $1 billion, So it includes things like I'm going nutrition programs for kids, Child health care services. Early childhood programs, let prevention in abatement program school aid. Wei have replaced virtually all of the lead service lines in Flint. Onda literally goes on and on, but the settlement primarily focuses on the Children. In the city of Flint, because we know that when it comes to lead poisoning, their the ones that are most impacted by that is in particular, understands perfectly very young Children. I mean, really babies and toddlers and things like that are particularly because it affects their brain development. As I understand it, give any sense of how big the class might be that actually Get the $600 million distributed to it. So at this point we have about 33 a half. No sorry, 1000 claimants, But we're expecting the class to grow and part of the next process is really educating the public know how it is. That they can file a claim that they could be included in the class. There's a question of what's happening the past and what's happening past We can't be undone. We could just try toe do it. We can too ameliorated. What can we do to make sure something like this doesn't happen again, if not in Flint somewhere else. Well, you know, so obviously I was not in office when this occurred. Neither was our current governor. Governor Whitman's happened under the previous administration's when both e. Ah, Attorney general and the governor We're Republicans, and I honestly think it's just about having a different mindset. You know? I mean, I think ultimately What's this tragic case boils down to is how government treats the citizens that its elected to serve, you know? I mean, do we treat Government like a business where our goal is to make government as profitable as possible, or are we doing? Do we have the mindset that the goal is to provide desperately needed on essential services for those? You need it the most those we represent, and You know my perspective and I will stay on behalf of Governor Wittmer her perspective that everyone deserves. You know whether it's health care or decent education or most of all, clean and safe drinking water. If we're not providing those things to our constituents, anything less than that is a failure of epic proportions by our government on I think that those who don't subscribe to that just don't deserve to serve in public office. You know these air fundamentals. Services that belonged to not just the wealthiest among us, but everybody who lives in our state. No, I actually read the book by Dr Mona Hanna Attisha, who is ah, physician living in Flint, who had small church at the time, who discovered this with some other people early on and try to report it. But as I understand, it wasn't simply a state failure. There's also the federal government of all that was not doing the testing needed to be done. Is that right? Well, that that's definitely the theory and I will tell you that the is a defendant. They have not settled with Flint. Neither have a number of engineering firms that had been contracting to do this work so There are still defendants outstanding. And yes, I would say that this failure of governmental at the state and the federal level and finally this is broader, and it goes even beyond the law. But again, the lead in water problem is not limited to Flint, Michigan and wasn't limited to the particular sister situation of taking the water out of the Flint River here in New York City. There's a report that says 82% of the public schools in the city have levels in the water, the drinking water in the fountains above toxic levels. What can we do as a country just start addressing the lead problem which really affects. Let's be frank, the poor among us. Weakened start addressing the issue of our aging infrastructure problem. What we've done in Michigan is, we now have passed some of the strictest laws in the country as it pertains to service. Lines that involved copper and lead on. We need to do that nationwide. We, you know, I keep on hearing Ah, for instance, from the Trump administration that they're going to prioritize infrastructure, but 3.5 years later, I haven't seen anything done in that regard. And I think we have to start understanding how this impacts people Indian Children who in just lead as you said, during their formative years, their lives will be forever changed will never have the same future as if they were drinking safe, clean drinking water. So the financial impact of having ofhim ignoring you structure issues actually cost us more money in the long run problem nationwide really appreciate you being here. That's Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Coming up. The Democrats had their say next week. It's the Republicans term. We have Carly Fiorina here to take us through both. This is Bloomberg. You know the difference between your bank in the banking business? The new chief executive will take the bank in a different direction. Your clothes in the fashion industry.

Dana how are you good so just in case of people have been listening to news up till now the latest in terms of sort of what our our collective restrictions are here in the state the highlights would you share them with us well there's a lot of but basically an order came out this morning from the governor related executive order and it fans restaurant food court cafes coffee houses other places of public accommodations offering food or beverages for on premise consumption they can still be delivery or take out and then in addition a number of other facilities again outdoor service facilities involving contact of any kind bingo halls bowling alley indoor climbing facility there it's really a very lengthy flat right it consensually any place where there's a danger of people coming into close contact with each other in reading the coronavirus so to be clear now on the restaurant it's it's right restaurants are closed except for take out now because there was a stretch where there was a three o'clock thing in a but now it's just close period well I mean people can go in to pick up their Kerry out right not to sit down five nine that's correct but dining in so even Starbucks's in places like that where you know people sit around those have the same restrictions that's right the house is well and is there a time frame on this or just indefinite well sure now do you are restricting are being played I believe you the end of the month I believe it March thirtieth that they have in place right now but that you know if I will to be extended well is the you you know when they picked these outside date still up till are they doing so so that they don't panic the people by making them too far out are they doing so with the knowledge in mind that they're going to extend them we're actually thinking like well that could be the date that we're done well you know obviously this film from the governor's office not from my department but I imagine that he is operating on the back of medical advice but she has a different ministry can call consulted with medical experts all over the country and I'm sure this is a step that you felt was necessary and they're gonna be held B. virus spreads or at how do you wish to develop and then take further measures an extended but not very now you mention that's the her office and not yours yours is Attorney General you do handle keeping law and order in the state so I I I've heard people starting to wonder do you've got all the stores close now everything locked up people not going into work and they were asking people to voluntarily not do this or that many or things that they've always done what's the penalty what's the enforcement if people were to gather in a larger group of people were to be open when they're not supposed to be well it's not really voluntary to be honest if you were hoping that people will comply but this is an executive order and the fact of the matter is for people to congregate and gather in crowds that are two hundred fifty people or larger for instance you know this is the crime at this point the misdemeanor offense and we're not trying to scare people we just are trying to protect people as much as possible at this point people be arrested for doing it no I I really don't think so I I think that if you have businesses that fail to comply they're going to face a regulatory function and so for instance if you have a liquor license or you're otherwise licensed by the state of Michigan you say having your life bended or revoked down the road if you have people who are assembling in large numbers and the police are called to take a look whether it be local or county or state police I imagine they're going to ask people to disperse but I don't we're not looking to lock people up we just want to keep people safe and healthy what about protecting you know you've got a a awful lot of businesses and and therefore assets that are kind of being abandoned you know office places aren't being gone to stores are being is there an extra vigilance to protect those things because it seems to me that's a big temptation for criminals they say there's nobody around nobody's coming into work for days on end has anybody thought that through in order to some some kind of additional law enforcement well done police and the sheriff's department I mean they're still on patrol so they are you know a cognizant of these orders and I know they're working to make sure that people property estate is well as their personal safety but unfortunately this isn't necessary measure and we're hoping that people will comply and that people will want to consider their health first right this is something that had to be done what it what if any I don't know if this I really know who's a authority any of this falls under because it's all so new but with the with regard to hospital availability extra hospital beds even the construction of temporary facilities what what's been suggested in done in other countries where they take existing facilities like gyms and and rec centers and and large buildings that aren't being used now convert them into hospital spaces for the projected amount of people who are going to need particular older people gonna need to be hospitalized and separated from where they are how are we preparing for that well you know that's something that I'm sure the governor is looking at as well as the department of health and Human Services my department does not deal with those matters we are really focused right now on for instance price gouging and making certain that people aren't engaging in those activities and also on corona virus related scams which are on the rise unfortunately and so we're working very hard to make sure that our products are available to people and they're available at an affordable price right actually even though I didn't like the math hand sanitizers cleaning blinds and include items that are important and we're trying to make sure that people are getting ripped off by some of the scams that are out there were people you know call someone up on the phone especially seniors they pretend to
