It kind of guidelines and try to proceed even though that would place myself and the rest of the courtroom actors in great job That's quite an accusation that's not shocking. Actually, uh, that well, I mean, I think that the problem is because the courts have kind of willfully indicated that they're not directly subject to the public health or CDC guidelines that their advisory to them as a independent branch of government. Individual lawyers are having to litigate these issues or fight these common sense issues in each of the jury trials. I have two colleagues that came down with symptoms yesterday and their trials have been derailed.

"He's got a long background in counterterrorism work, and he and other analysts say the White House assertions of widespread violence from the left are baseless. Those comments are general not coming from the experts within the administration, who Are at the National Counter Terrorism Center at the FBI Counterterrorism division. They're coming from politicians, so it's not a reflection of the data. The far left simply does not present the same threat that the far right dozen capabilities in plots and attacks Orin fatalities, none of those Nevertheless, this is what Brian Murphy says he was pressured to do to elevate the threat of the far left. How does he describe this? This pressure campaign. Well in the complaint, he talks about being asked by the top leaders to soften language in a report on white supremacy to make it quote less severe, and at the same time, he says, he was being asked to add more information. On the far left. He mentions Antifa anarchists. In particular, the White House has dismissed these allegations are false and defamatory that call Murphy a disgruntled employee. But he's not the first to raise these concerns. We've heard former senior D H s officials saying this that the far right wasn't taken seriously. We've heard it from researchers who work closely with the government on policy making. And I mean we hear it ourselves in the market the different ways. The president speaks about attacks where the perpetrator's a right wing ideologue versus, say, a leftist or a Muslim. What does take this one up A notch in terms of revelations is that this is an insider alleging that political appointees attempted to manipulate actual intelligence and this is not a press release. This was an assessment of domestic threats to the nation. And so Murphy's asking the department's inspector general to investigate what he calls abuses of authority. So how how did all of that affect the white supremacist movement? Extremism analyst generally say the far right especially, you know, white nationalist supremacists had been emboldened under Trump. And so this is one more account, saying the administration looked the other way as violent actors got more organized, more violent, better funded. And now we're starting to see some of those groups show up to protest, intimidate and launch attacks that many fear will lead to an escalation before and after the November election.

And I'm Audie Cornish today, the House Judiciary committee began hearings on lessons from special counsel, Robert Muller's report on Russia's election. Interference also today judiciary chairman, Jerry Nadler announced a breakthrough in talks with the Justice department to hand over evidence Muller used to draw his conclusions NPR. Congressional correspondent Susan Davis joins us now on the latest from Capitol Hill and. Let's start with that agreement reached between the judiciary committee, end DOJ. What are the terms? So in a statement judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler, said that DOJ agreed to turn over in his words key evidence that was used in its investigation over whether or not President Trump obstructed Justice. We don't know explicitly what this evidence is. It's always important to remember that Muller, did not draw a conclusion on whether or not the president of structed Justice in the report made a point to say the president was not exonerated on this front and kind of turned it over to congress for their oversight capabilities, now there's said, this evidence, should start coming over as early as today. He said every member on the panel will be able to view it, and it will continue to be part of their ongoing investigation. If there is a deal will Democrats call off that vote tomorrow to hold attorney general bar in civil contempt. No, it's still on. It's really important to make a distinction here, though. So the judiciary did back in may the committee is they did vote to hold bar in contempt of congress. That is not what's going to be coming to the floor tomorrow. Oh, would Democrats are bringing to the floor tomorrow, essentially authorizes, the judiciary committee to fight the attorney general and other people administration in civil court to enforce their subpoenas? It's a type of civil contempt now they're says if bar and DOJ complies with this request that you're not going to have to take that route, but they're not gonna take the pressure off. The resolution also applies to former White House counsel, Don Mcgann and testimony and documents. They're seeking from him. I also think it's important to see this view. This vote happening tomorrow is, you know, a bit about politics. Democrats are still pretty divided over whether to move four four four word formerly with an impeachment inquiry. It does give Democrats chance to go on the record and say they are doing something to hold this administration. Accountable is not legally necessary in order to fight it in the courts. But it does give them a little bit. In the meantime, the judiciary committee launched its oversight investigation into Robert Muller's report, then we turn on C span and. Basically, we see the former Nixon White House counsel, John dean. I mean he was a key witness in the Watergate scandal, testifying. So why did they call him? You know, they're clearly trying to draw a parallel here between Nixon what Nixon was to Watergate Democrats are saying Muller could be to President Trump. Dean did invoke Watergate and saying that the mullahs report could be seen as a quote roadmap for impeachment. This is a term that was used for a secret report that was written by Watergate prosecutor Lee under war ski, who provided a report to the House Judiciary committee, that kind of said, here's the case. Now, you go, make it the top Republican on the committee, Doug Collins, he's a Republican from Georgia kind of made the point about the this panel of hearings is so what right. Like none of the witnesses at the hearing today were involved in the Miller investigation. There was also a couple of former federal prosecutors that testified, there were not substantial. Quickness witnesses in the investigation into either the interference or the administration. It wasn't that dissimilar Collins said to listening to people on a cable news panel talk about what they think should happen. We should note, the dean is off syncing on cable news talking about this very matter. But it does it is also serves as a reminder that Democrats have had a hard time getting people in the Trump administration to come up and testify about the Miller report. They really struck out so far. So this is in some ways seen as the best they could do as a starting point. Now they're says he's still confident. Bob Muller is gonna come up and testify before the committee in public. Even though Muller has said he does not want to do that, Jerry Nadler has not ruled out using a subpoena, if he won't, but he still says he's not willing to go there, just yet. That's NPR. Congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome. The biggest donor in the history of the university of Alabama says the school is choosing, quote zealotry over the wellbeing of its students. The donor is Florida businessman Hugh Culverhouse last year. He pledged twenty six and a half million dollars to the university on Friday. The board of trustees voted to give it back all the money. He's given so far and to remove his name from its law school. The reason his objections to Alabama's controversial new law banning nearly all abortions in the state, at least that is the reason according to covert house. The university says it was Culverhouse's desire to influence hiring firing at admissions on campus. And the university has released emails showing the return of covert houses gift was under consideration days before he waited on abortion, Culverhouse wrote about all this, in an op-ed published by the Washington Post, and he spoke with us today about it. I asked him, why thinks the decision was tied to history. On abortion. I the time second time third. The timing and the timing as you see it was what all the time. It was a matter of hours, my press. Release came out, and with a short period of time the chancellor statement came out, and which he said, he was returning the money and he said the day before they had decided to return the money. I don't believe that I believe it say it decided to return money. They would have returned it before. I just wanna make sure I understand. So you're saying you made public remarks laying out how clearly you disagree with the Alabama state law on abortion, and that after that the university said, here's all your money. Take it back. Thanks. Thanks cora. So reconcile that with this Email that I'm looking at, I'm looking at a copy of an Email dated Saturday, may twenty fifth it's from you to the president of the university of Alabama Stewart bell subject line return of ten million dollars paid in advance. You're, you're asking for money back. This. This was an Email dated five days before your public remarks on abortion. Yes. Can I explain that please? Okay. Ten million dollars was money. I had paid in advance of the schedule. It was not asking to be paid back. Twenty one and a half. It was my statement that you have not spent any money at twenty one and a half million dollars some of the money being there for twenty months if you're going to sit there and not do scholarships and professorships then return the ten million advanced and I'll pay it back to you over the schedule. I suppose the broader point being without getting deep into the weeds of what check was dated win there appears to be a paper trail, documenting disagreement and rancor that predates, your public remarks on abortion. Well, the issue I had the big issue was I've felt class. Sizes. We're too small. They were denying to Alabama students access. But at some point the denegrate increase the starting class, eight percent that result, major issue. It sounds as though you believe that with your money with your gift should come some say into how the law school is run, sure. You look at my speech when it was announced a clearly stated I intend to be in mentally and ball. I'm not giving the money that my name on a building, none of the money I've ever given as way. I don't give for buildings. I'm sure it's crossed your mind, Mr. Culverhouse that the, the losers here are going to be the current and future students of the university of Alabama. In say it, my whole goal is to create a middle class, because we are losing the middle class is becoming the upper lower class. I'm fortunate my dad worked dioramas. We weren't born into money, but we worked our way into. Everybody should have that same chance that I did. He did. Hugh Culverhouse the Florida real estate investor who gave twenty six and a half million to the university of Alabama talking with us. There about schools decision to give it back, Mr. Culverhouse. Thank you. Thank you very much. For more on this. We turn to NPR's, Debbie Elliott in orange beach Alabama. Hi, deb. Hello, hello. So two points, one for the sake of disclosure. I should mention you are a university of Alabama grad true second. What does the university have to say about covert houses allegations of retaliation? Well the university's position is that Culverhouse is somehow trying to rewrite history by injecting, quote, one of society's most emotional divisive issues in quote into what was the abortion law into what was really a dispute over his attempts to influence academic policy? And, you know, Culverhouse has been getting a lot of national press since he called on students to boycott. University on may twenty ninth that was two weeks after the governor signed that abortion man into law. And now as you noted before the interview with, with Culverhouse we know from E mail records released by the school that covers house himself had I asked for some of that donation back. Well before that. Right. And you've looked at all that Email evidence that I was coming through today as well. What left out you. Well, I think the fact that days before Culverhouse called for the boycott. There was this E mail traffic that the chancellor and attorneys had decided to return his donation and take his name off of the law school. Now that Email chain also included, some of Culverhouse's missives to school officials. He was trying to have a say in who was hired for a constitutional law professorship named for him. And he belittled, the dean of the law school as in several emails, I'm going to, quote, one of them, he said that this dean, quote would always be a small town insecure, dean, and that outside. Side world frightens him. Now I spoke with a law. Professor who says, faculty, the Alabama law school had concerns about Culverhouse's efforts long before this dispute that his efforts to intervene, and academic policy date back, as far as February, this professor, also questioned why the university of Alabama should take the blame for a law passed by state lawmakers when several professors at the law school had spoken out against the abortion ban. So I think the broader question here is how much control does a mega donor deserve. Right. Indeed. And two very different and conflicting views on that it sounds like playing out there in Alabama NPR's, Debbie Elliott. Thanks so much. You're welcome..

"And also shouldn't judges go. Hey, can't go for something that's out of the category of the crime that what actually happened that? When when I started practicing thirty five years ago in you were on the I always refer to the third floor of the criminal courts building. Because that's where all the preliminary hearings were back, then there were judges. Like judge mayor say mayors news in department thirty six Sam mayor soon was a was a very -ccomplish district attorney who then became then a municipal court judge was famously in the courts on the third floor. He would look a case like this. And he would turn to the DA and say, what are you doing? What are you? Why are you charging a murder? This is not a murder never was a murder never will be a murder, and he would have weeded out that was back when preliminary hearing served the fun. Action of weeding out cases. Now, every judge is I'm not gonna say every judge. But but the overwhelming majority of judges are so afraid of being on the front page of the dates be also LA times test or being on the internet or going getting Aaron Persky like for the judge who was recalled in the Brock Turner case that that was up north Stanford. Yeah. The Stanford case that guy got recalled first time in eight years judge was recalled and that was and he could not have been more hosed legal term by the by a movement that had no business doing what they were doing in that case and judges and understandably most judges nowadays in the old days. And I I guess I'm getting old. So I can say it used to be the being a judge was a capstone to your career that was you kind of if you were a civil litigator. You would live. You'd you'd work at a large firm for twenty years. And then you'd get appointed to the bench because it was a great honor. Or if you were a DA or a defense lawyer, you aspired to be a judge after trying big cases. And that's what you want to do Harvey Giss who was who was a great DA should've tried OJ Harvey was a judge in San Fernando. And and it was that was kind of the mold of the judges that you would want would expect and actually the presiding judge of the criminal courts building. Now Sam ODA, I try to case against same ODA, very -ccomplish trial war, that's kind of a throwback in a way to yesteryear, Kathy mater, another one who's actually listened to the show on occasion throwback to yesteryear. Now, unfortunately, judges get punished if they do the right thing. I mean, they someday will file against them and say they're soft on crime some somebody else. Getting those though the there'll be a movement so to speak that says, oh, they they let. Pedophile go or they do this. Or they do that. You get you just kind of throw something out. And we end up litigating social issues and criminal courtroom where they know it's the last place that these things should be litigated. Well, you know, it's funny. I was thinking about it. You know, we talk about there's always news about this comedian or what Louis C K say on stage in baba blob. I've said a million times you must talk like nobody's listening, and if you were at a diner and you're sitting in a booth and a bunch of people were sitting in a booth next year, your parents, your wife, your in-laws, whomever co workers, and you're talking with a friend the conversation would change dramatically correct dramatically. All you'd be talking about is how LeBron how the Lakers have been since LeBron got there and how unseasonably cold it is you would never get into work. You'd never get near relationships. You'd never get in your family. We'd never speak freely. So in a way, and we don't want this for comedians..
