A highlight from THE HASH: Bernie Madoff's Former Attorney Reacts to Sam Bankman-Fried Being Sent to Jail; Trump's Crypto Bags

"This is the hash podcast. Stay informed with the latest on Bitcoin, ETH, the metaverse, Web3 and more. All on the hash for your ears. You're listening to the Coindesk podcast network. Hey there. Happy Monday and welcome to Coindesk TV. You are watching the hash. I am Zach Seward. We have Jen Sonasi, Will Foxley and Wendy Oh. We are going to get you up to speed on all that's going on in the world of crypto. You guys ready for this thing? Let's do it. I'm starting off the first story of the day. Friday, Sam Bankman Fried got his bail revoked and was shown to a jail cell. We are joined now by a special guest to help us unpack the latest development and its significance. Joining us is Ira Lee Sorkin. He's the former attorney for Bernie Madoff and a current partner at Mintz and Gold. Ira, how are you today? Thank you. So first of all, I just want a high level, informed perspective on this SPF thing. You've seen some major cases play out in your day. Is there anything that is especially striking or notable about the SPF case here and now? What are your high level thoughts? High level thoughts, immediate interest. Next question. All right. Let's do it. All right. Next up. Next up, immediate interest. All right. So he's in jail now. He's waiting for his October court date behind bars. You gave a similarly concise comment to CoinDesk back in December saying that Sam Bankman Fried should quote, just shut up already. Sorry, I paraphrased you, but basically it was shut up. Those were the two words of advice that you provided to Sam Bankman Fried. I don't think he took that because the judge said he was really pushing the envelope with his communications with various witnesses. Is that still the piece of advice that you would share to Sam Bankman Fried if you were his counsel now? I mean, there's no need for him once he was made bail for him to discuss the case, to share his thoughts about the case with any party other than his counsel. And quite frankly, the amount of documents, and I say this with the understanding that Vincent Gold does not represent anyone in this case. We certainly don't represent Mr. Bankman Fried. We don't represent any witnesses. We are not involved in the case, but the standard conduct that every defendant who makes bail is told, do not discuss the case. Don't discuss it with any potential witnesses. Don't discuss it certainly with the press. The only person you should talk to is your counsel. And there are ways to deal with other witnesses in the case, such as through counsel and a process called a joint defense agreement where the lawyers can talk to one another pursuant to an agreement, and it protects the attorney -client privilege, and it gives the opportunity for all counsel in the case, whether they are defendants or unindicted co -conspirators or conspirators, to be able to share information amongst the lawyers without their clients being present. So those are the general rules. There's nothing unusual about this particular case. When Sam Blankman Fried made bail, he was specifically instructed not to discuss it with anyone, discuss the case with anyone. Don't discuss it with any potential witnesses. Don't share what you are given in the way of the mandatory discovery that the government's required to give to all defendants. And, of course, we have another situation going on in Washington, D .C., and in the Southern District or the Middle District of Florida, I think it's the Southern District of Florida, where a rather prominent individual was given the same instruction by the judge. It's standard, and that's the way it's done. If you violate the bail conditions, which Mr. Blankman Fried violated according to the judge, then he faces the consequences and the consequences are jail. My understanding is that he's going to appeal it. He's got a very good lawyer representing him, and they're going to appeal it. But the chances of him getting out pending the trial, I think, are very slim. These are decisions made by the district court judge, who happens to be a judge of many years and he's very well respected, very smart. And the Court of Appeals is not going to question, I believe, his decision because he knows the record and he knows what the bail conditions are. Thanks again for joining us this morning. I wanted to ask about the significance of being able to prepare for what's coming in October while in jail. How difficult is it? How difficult is it to talk with your lawyer or with your client during that period? Is this a huge disadvantage now going into October? It is a huge disadvantage because there are, from what I've read and heard, there are innumerable documents, many, many, many, many, perhaps millions of documents that the government is required to turn over to Mr. Blankman Fried's counsel. And having had clients who are incarcerated and not being able to make bail, it is very difficult in a paper case such as this to prepare for trial. The facilities at the Metropolitan NBC Brooklyn Center, where he's being held, very, very difficult to prepare. But this is something that I have no doubt his lawyers spoke to him about and I'm just speculating and said, if you stay out, it'll be much easier to prepare for trial. If you're incarcerated, it's very difficult. The facilities are bad. There is privacy, but to load in all the documents and all the information that the government is required to turn over to his lawyers is going to make it very difficult for him to prepare. But it's done. There are a number of people who don't make bail, but it's done. It just makes it a lot more difficult to prepare. I want to talk about these diary entries. They feel like the straw that broke the camel's back here. Sam Bankman Fried's attorneys say that he wasn't trying to tamper with witnesses, that they confirmed he did leak a few pages of the diary to The New York Times. Could this come back? Could it be brought up again once this does go to trail in October? And how might it affect his case? It won't affect it at all. The fact that he disclosed information to The Times or to any media. Let's make it general media. It's not going to affect the trial at all. It affected his bail, obviously, but it's not going to affect the trial. What he turned over, we don't know. I don't know whether The Times has published it or intends to publish it, but there are First Amendment and some freedom of press issues involved in that. And I'm old enough to remember the Pentagon Papers case and Daniel Ellsberg. And that didn't stop the disclosure of information that came to the press. But it didn't affect the trial and it won't affect the trial here either. I have a question for you. Myself and a lot of other people are speculating that Sam will be given special treatment because he comes from a family with a lot of influence and money. Do you think that that is something that we will see play out that he will be segregated away from the other inmates and he will receive special treatment while incarcerated? The short answer is no. He may be segregated. Often defendants who have some notoriety are separated. But the short answer is no. I don't believe he's going to get any special treatment in jail. Jail is not a very nice place, particularly the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, which is closed, and the Brooklyn Correctional Center, which is open. And he will not be given any special privileges. And certainly the facilities do not consider the success or wealth of the family or those who put out the help.

Caller: Is Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira a Patriot?

"You told Tracy my screener that there's some pretty decent people and honorable people who are capable of telling the truth, I guess I would be under the realm of whistleblower. Do you think this 21 year old Jack to share is potentially a great patriot? I wouldn't call him a great patriot, but I think potentially there are people high in the government who are great patriots. I don't think he did this alone. I think there are people who are against the lunacy that's going on in our government right now and want to stop it have made it possible for him to get this stuff and leak it to the public so that we can stop what's happening and it's ridiculous. We've got the 82nd and a 101st airborne and Poland and Romania right now. We're looking for a war with Russia. And these people disagree, but they can't do it publicly. Daniel ellsberg in 1971 did it publicly and he paid a pretty price, but he was trying to stop a disastrous war then too.

"On a project to try to do that. But it was just too difficult to get the performance out of the hardware of the day and also nobody had broadband so right now. There was no point going with that. Be easier thing to accomplish though would secure email so then. It doesn't matter how long it takes to to do the computation. It's just email so much involved activism of time well in the nineteen eighties. I was I was active in trying to stop the nuclear arms race You know the cold war was going on and People were afraid that nuclear war was almost inevitable. Right yeah brezhnev was in the kremlin and Reagan was in the white house. And so i was active in teaching a class on military policy issues. I did civil disobedience at the nevada. Nuclear weapons test site was in jail with carl sagan. Oh and daniel ellsberg will severe audience is probably too young to remember. Oh i would be so sure and did that did that. Factor into this was that was that was that also behind. You're wanting to have secure communications. Yes my activism of the nineteen eighties. What largely about protesting against the government In the government had a lot of capabilities to intercept communication in third world countries human rights workers and grassroots political organisations. Were were targeted. So i wanted to have technology that could be used for that too and so years later in nineteen ninety-one when i did pgp. or when. I was our nine hundred ninety. S when i really started working on it. I was thinking of human rights projects. I was thinking of human rights groups and domestic grassroots political organizations to protect people from their own government. So that's what i had in my most about. Gp we'll say regular everyday people Have ready access to strike christian. If you know where to look and we've talked about it on the a lot but things were different back in the early nineties. I'm guessing so describe for us what we're things were back then it. I just objective technical standpoint. What we're kind of the what was kind of the state of the art. At the time and then politically was very different to. Because the government was the government did not like regular people having encryption so bring again brings back to that time like what. What were the technologies of the time before. Pgp and and how is the government kind of putting their thumb on the scales. Well there wasn't much strong encryption at the time even other software products that used public key. Cryptography were using fifty six. Bit dance says the lock cypher. And so that could be broken by any government or any resourceful organization and and so there really wasn't any way for the average person to protect themselves to communicate securely over great distances without the risk of interception and so the with pgp that changed it was possible for the first time to for the average person to communicate over great distances without the risk of interception now governments of course could communicate over great distances with you. Know strong encryption.

"I don't know exactly why. I mean ship to so. Let's just put it that way to population has way more access to information than them like. Wmd's much like come on like they could convince the population like this was an act of war. Japan is not ready for it. Japan's not ready to to go toe to toe with china. I thought a lot about how the rest of the world would react. And that i think is complicated because i i look at russia and russia made its moves and they were prepared. They had socked away a lot of savings from the commodity price. Boom during the early. Two thousand so they knew they knew some sanctions were coming. They built up a nice. You know hundreds of billions of dollars worth of worth of supplies there in in terms of money And you know. They fed it out in terms of like more. Pensions more pro. You know But at the end of the day there was only so far. Germany was willing to go with natural gas on the line. And i look at the rest of the world. And it's like boy. China is really re chinese so much more important to the global economy than russia. Like orders of magnitude more important and like. How much is germany. Willing to. Rock the boat of that relationship over a territory that the un does not recognize. And that if you even call it a country or recognize that china will have nothing to do with you. And they've got it on paper from a us administration that is there's and i really hope the us takes no part in that. Honestly it would be a disaster like nothing would destroy the credibility of us. Security guarantees like trying to intervene. I i think. I it depends on how far the the cpa was willing to go. But you know it's interesting you know it's interesting back in the day Gareth porter came out this article about probably about a month ago it was from a daniel ellsberg leak and basically the crux was i. Forget the exact know exactly what the leak was but it was something along..

Yuri Bezmenov Predicts Big Media Catering to Government, Only to Save Themselves

"For me, Jim. Yuri Bez Mina fee. I want you to listen very closely to this folks is a former KGB agent explaining what exactly happens to the woke crowd defending these idiots in the White House and empower right now. When their time comes, check this out. And yet these people have been programmed and as you say in place, and who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept, these are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this most of them. Yes, simply because The psychological shock when when they will see in future what the what the beautiful Society of equality and social justice means in practice. Obviously they will revolt. They will. They will be very unhappy, frustrated people. And the Marxist Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. They obviously they will join the links of the centre's dissidents. Unlike in present United States, they will do not place for dissent in future Marxist Leninist America. Here you can. You can get, uh, popular like Daniel Ellsberg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being dissident for criticizing your Pentagon. In future, these people will be simply Squashed like cockroaches. Nobody is going to pay them. Nothing for that beautiful noble ideas of equality. The irony now is what Desmond Off, said about these useful idiots who kissed the butts of people and power, hoping they'll be the last one is taken out in the end, As he says, You know, you get these chain fund this is because this has taken in the eighties, you know, and they become celebrities for for taking on the Pentagon. Now the left has shifted so completely from Jane Fonda there now fond of Jane. There now the other way around there now completely that they've done a total 1 80 so much So it's almost a 1 83 65 20. Check the math

"Well that is the consequence when you decide that you want to spread light or leak information to the public. The change policy because that's usually the motivation for leakers as at their leaking information to The public because they either have guilty conscious or you know. They think that there should be some sort of policy change right. We now all about that with our episode on the pentagon papers pretty much the exact situation yeah and daniel ellsberg knew very well that he was going to go he was probably going to serve life in prison and now it was it was. He was lucky that he didn't go to jail right. He was he didn't go to prison. Didn't serve life in prison just because of nixon's shenanigans making it just like kind of a circus trial As far as like you know burglarizing ham and allegedly trying to assassinate him and trying to bribe the judge. Obviously it's now his nixon kind of screwed himself. But i mean that's good. Because i think it's a great that daniel ellsberg is not rotting in prison right now and he's been an activist for this for owner ninety in his nineties exactly. He's still an activist to vital. He still kicking. Listen to that episode's really really interesting. Yeah and there have been people in the national security state leaking documents since forever and major newspapers have been publishing them. So in the case of daniel ellsberg with the pentagon papers. That's the new york times in washington post and it's hard to kind of like the line where people are trying to figure out now is what's the difference between wikileaks and the new york times when they published classified materials or classified documents. Is there a difference. Do you think there's a difference Maybe we'll see well according to new york times legal team they don't see difference that essentially prosecuting julian assange for leaking classified information. That basically gives a right to really put anyone in jail either. The leaky or the league. The league leaky or the leaker. I mean the which which is scary. Which is a very scary precedent. That very mu very is the whistleblower. It's it's very much so a scary president. I think you know. There's there's certain components of assange story specifically that i think warrant some conversation Particularly in his motivations To get some of the documents and in his methods in order to get them i think. Many of those arguments are are weak in comparison to the overall judgment. That as you pointed out in your times as legal team sees no legal difference between But their columnists still call mister. Very anti sanju. But their legal team their legal analysts are like. There's really no difference between what we do and what he does it. It says at the president precedent that if they can do this to assange they can do this to any reporter with of with any type of classified secret for any palladian read as far as freedom of speech in as far as your first amendment rights in just transparency among.

If you want to come down and make the deal with them, and I said, let's go and we had a press conference shortly thereafter, and that's when we announced that, we're going to do it. I was a Unitarian even before all this happened in Alaska. But I can't tell you what, what? I feel for the beacon, press for the unitarians, and for, Daniel Ellsberg, then quoted in legs, to say that. I, when I went into service, I was, I was going in to be a spy but I wasn't getting any action. So I went in to be a combat infantry, platoon leader and on the patch on my shoulder said, follow me.

"Is terrible truth. A little in the midst of him speaking he broke down crying. Yes that's democratic. Senator mike gravel attempting to read the pentagon papers into the record. The congressional record fifty years ago. He died this weekend at the age of ninety one in two thousand seven. In portland oregon. I moderate an event at the annual conference of the unitarian universalist church in portland oregon commemorating the publication of the pentagon papers by the beacon press. They're publishing house. One of the main speakers was alaska's senator microcell today you bring we bring you his extended remarks as he laid out how he received the pentagon papers from washington post journalist spend back dickey and turn had gotten them from pentagon papers whistleblower daniel ellsberg let me just pick up where he left off because it really is a lot of lucy nets. And i'll talk fast. But but i want to get all the deals out because i know what you want to know is the inside skinny. You can read the broad lines. But it's what happened to both our lives at the time that dan calls my office. He talks to joe rusting. Who is my administrative assistant. My newspaper assistant. I was down in the senate. Jim getting a massage table. And and of course you can't have staff come into the senate. This is hollowed ground so into the gym. So he's not gonna dory since i've got to see the senator. It's an emergency and he works his way into get ended a massage stall in the masseur pulls back a little bit and he whispers down in my ear. He's somebody wants to give you the pentagon papers. Man where is he. He says he's going to call us back so men i get dressed up really back. The office. I'm sitting in my office. Waiting for this call. Long comes his voice. He says senator. Would you read the pentagon papers as part of your filibuster. I says yes. Please hang up. The reason for that is. I have a background. In intelligence. i was twenty three years old. I was a top secret control officer. I can classify declassify in those twenty three years old. So now here. The papers coming at me. I had a sense of what they were was a history a history and of course i had to read what the times published and so lo and behold dan and i have other conversations tattoos. Our memories are vague. He informed me about something that i didn't know and occasionally i'd done that with him when he was doing his memoirs secrets. We it's been there a couple of days here interpretation what you think we did. Yes well no. That's why we did it that way and what happens. That's human beings. We all have different. Read on some of the details. The long and short of it is he. He called me in a few days and he. He's angry on the phone. Is why the hell heavy have used the papers. Nicest why the hell did you got into me. I don't have my heard any effort. So he goes back to ben big dickey and ben then contact spy office. Well quite candy. I didn't know who ben was but he wanted to get to meet with me so so secretively on the front steps of the capitol behind column in broad daylight during session. So ben is standing there. We're talking about how we're going to move the papers across. And then out comes bob dole. Who is one of my enemies. And but we're on the same committee. And he walks up big dicky and is slipping behind the column so he can't be seen so and so i. I get a door fairly fast and so we get back and had this plan. We're gonna meet someplace out in the country rock creek park and doug as have been a little more experience in this than you have what we're gonna do. Here's how we're going to transfer the papers you're gonna come at twelve o'clock at night under the marquee of the mayflower hotel in washington dc. At twelve o'clock you park your car there. I will come up with my car. Open your trunk. I ll mike trump now pop. The paper said now race off. That's the way we'll do it before. God and country and they won't even know what happened what happens a group of alaska natives walked by our senator and they all want to come up and talk. This tried to peel them away. Well i've gotta run. They got so. I got my car. We did that. We transferred the papers. I sped away by car. Came back in and been and i had a coffee. I took the papers home. Where are you gonna put them. I brought them home. That's the first time. I told my wife at the time. Isis get depending on papers right here. The whole world was looking to and chase him down. Catch them get the him. We're going to put him under the bed. We're going to sleep on and that's what we're going to do next morning i'm dyslexic and so i couldn't read all those papers if it took me a year and so what happened. I started calling staff in. And i said look good to come in. You bring toilet kit. Don't tell your wife what you're doing. You just come into the centers off a house and at amendment. The door and i said look. I've got the pentagon papers you come in. You can't leave until i leave. And i won't think ill if you don't come in because there's risk that we don't know anything about and so everyone to the person said senator let me so about four or five people for today's or sleeping on the living room floor and we would go through the papers. The style used in going into it. I was reading my little portion of it. The first parliament which is the most historic and most interesting part but the others. I said whenever you come across the name come and show me the name. I would then read on the context and make a judgment is this should be excised or not when we exercise. We just take a pencil. We took scissors and cut it out. So there'd be no misunderstandings now. I've got to bring the papers from my home to the capitol and so i by two flight bags you notice bowl flight bags without wheels by by two those to honor the papers and so i spend the money. Pack them up with two bags like that and so i'm going to take him to the capital but now i'm concerned so call the vietnam veterans of america. I say look at. I've got a problem. I need somebody to guard my office. And what i want. I want the most disabled veterans you can find and low and behold i trudge into would let my staff touched so i'd trudge in with my two big bags heavy and of course staff is walking wispy and the cops look at why the hell senator carrying two bags and staff is not carrying these bags so we walked down to the end of the hall and there are about six seven soldiers in uniform. You know ponytails badges all over all wheelchairs and they could do wheelies and all they do. They didn't know what a had all these go. get him. senator go get them. I've just about to cry with the with the commitment of these human beings and they guarded the office. No they were throwing their bodies at anybody tried to break in. I had two papers. I go to the floor of the senate now. I had made a deal with devon had to get. I wanted to read it in the filibuster now. I had a little bit of ego trip going on here. I wanted to break. Thurmond's record in filibustering so in the draft was expire at the end among. So i wanted to get two days about close to forty eight hours. Brick his record now hugging do that. Most people don't know when huey long those guys used to debate what they do. Drink a lot of water right on the floor right on the senate floor the make no mistake about it. But i'm a little more than that. And so what i do is i rid myself up. I go to the doctor's office. I tell them what's going on. Tell them filibuster and so he rings me up with the colostomy bag with little holes down to my ankle and my administrative assistant job is going to bleed the colostomy bag then. It gets better than that we go to. I gotta get somebody to chair because you can't control the floor if you don't control the chair so i go to l. in cranston my closest friend allen. I need help. what do you do you buy. I got the pentagon papers. Oh my god mike. You need more than help. You got problems so so he says i should all have to touch the papers. You just get into chair. By five o'clock we'll turn around and you just stay in that chair as long as i'm filibustering and and so.

"And have you been able to speed to winner after she was released. And do you have a sense that there's still a possibility for a pardon for well. I have spoken with her. I was fortunate to be there when she was released. She's in good health and excellent spirits but the pardon process continues. The fight goes on regardless of whether she is in prison or not she is a felon she will have that on her record for life and a pardon can still do quite a bit to improve her circumstances but we believe that it's more important probably for the country Reality released a document that gave us information that we needed to know at a time that we absolutely needed to know it and she was imprisoned. Not because the information was a danger or put anyone in danger she was in prison to sav- the insecurities of one man who was concerned about the validity of his election. Went in and as we saw from the last four years absolutely nothing could put those insecurities at rest. Could you talk a little bit about exactly what happened. She was arrested by. Fbi agents at in our home and augusta georgia back in june of two thousand seventeen. Just a couple of days after the intercept published an expose. Could you talk about that. Yes armed. fbi agents came to our house and interrogated her in her own home largely in order to avoid the idea. That it was a custodial interrogation they did not provide her with her maranda rights or an attorney And and they eventually. She admitted that she was the one who had leaked the document and she never saw the light of day again she was she was incarcerated. Denied pretrial release and basically forced into a plea agreement For the longest sentence ever given for a release of classified information to the media. Let me ask you about a justice department official. Who's leaving this according tape. E the justice department's tightening its rules around obtaining records from members of congress attorney general merrick garland said amidst revelations the department under trump had secretly seized records from democrats and members of the media Garland statement came as a justice department. Officials said the top national security official. John i think it's dimmers plan to leave by the end of next week. He was sworn in a few weeks after the subpoena of the democrats records one of the few trump appointees who's remained in the biden ration- what's his involvement with realities case. Well his involvement is pretty crucial in realities case. But it but it's certainly not him. It's fairly clear that the National security arm of the doj was very willing to be political National security At doj was running her entire prosecution. everything was coming from washington and and it was very clear from the beginning that this was going to be Basically something that could be made. An example of that reality could be made an example of an and and shown around to ice any kind of release of confidential information especially information that embarrassed the president. And turn to this issue of embarrassing. The president wasn't they lead the intercept article that supposedly a reality provided documents fourche where there was an nsa report for may of two thousand seventeen showed that the agency was convinced that the russian general staff main intelligence directorate or the gru was responsible for interfering in the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Exactly where we're not really sure. This information became top secret because substantially The conclusions of the intelligence had been made public under the obama administration So it's not even clear when this information was made to be top secret. That reality released any other message for the biden administration. This is a wrong that can be set right And for the health of the country. I think it needs to be. We're living in such a divided society and we are not going to be able to start healing until we forgive our truth. Tellers and a pardon for reality is an excellent for step for the country to start healing putting this right well. Alison grunter alan. I want to thank you so much for being with us. Attorney for reality winner. Who's just been released to. A halfway house will serve out her term till november there unless pardoned or sentence commuted. I want to end with the legendary whistleblower daniel ellsberg the former defense analyst who leaked the pentagon papers in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy one Fifty years ago week We spent the hour. Would then ellsberg monday on democracy now and afterwards continued to talk to him and asked him about the former. Us intelligence analyst daniel hale who is unexpectedly arrested and jailed ahead of his sentencing which is scheduled for july thirteenth in marci pleaded guilty to one count of violating the world. War one era espionage act for leaking classified documents about the secretive us drone and targeted assassination. Programs this is ellsberg speaking about daniel. How i think what he did was very admirable simply passing on some documents or some information but really carrying on as he should a campaign against the murderous aspect of this campaign acted very admirably in a way that very very few officials have ever done in showing the moral courage to separate themselves from criminal activities in wrongful activities of their own administration and resist them as well as exposing them. So i would say. He's a particularly admirable person. Especially when that should not be put in prison for this to see the full hour with dan ellsberg as well as our post show interview you can go to democracy now dot org next up we turn to the historian stephen wertheim as the nato summit wraps up he writes an op.

A grand jury heard testimony in preparation of indictments against the to. Russo was found in contempt of court for refusing to testify against ellsberg rousseau. Spent six weeks in jail. Meanwhile ellsberg's ex wife. Carol cummings testified before the grand jury hears their son robert ellsberg her hope all along was that by her testifying again that would keep a prevent them from calling me as a witness but that didn't happen robert then fifteen was called as a witness because his dad had recruited him and his younger sister two years earlier to help make photocopies of the massive secret. Pentagon papers report. The fbi came to the door and they said to my mother. I'm sorry by. The robert has been subpoenaed before the grand jury will win today. This was early in the morning. I guess before. I went to school. My mother contacted my father to tell him that. I had been subpoenaed and when i spoke to him. He didn't let on to me. How upset he was that this was happening. He just said well. Of course you'll tell the truth so we had to go downtown to courthouse in los angeles. And so that's what happened. And that's what i did by the end of nineteen seventy-one daniel ellsberg and tony russo. Were finally indicted for theft and espionage ellsberg faced twelve felony charges and a possible one hundred fifteen years in prison but false starts a mistrial and judicial reviews would delay the trial for a full year april nineteen hundred seventy the war. In vietnam shows no sign of ending. I have ordered that our air and naval attacks on military installations in north vietnam be continued until the north vietnamese stopped their offensive in south vietnam daniel ellsberg's goal of trying to end the war by leaking the pentagon papers seemed hopeless. Still awaiting trial ellsberg to speak out against the war. At protests around the country on may third nineteen seventy-two ellsberg addressed a rally in washington. It ended in pandemonium. Heckler shouted traitor. Fistfights broke out. Among some of the attendees it was later revealed that the hecklers were hired in yet another white house operation to discredit ellsberg. Just a few weeks later. The plumbers made headlines scale eagle bugging. Apparently it was one aim of a team which broke into the democratic national headquarters in washington during the weekend and political background. This was the first hint of what would later. Become known as the watergate scandal. Meanwhile president nixon was focused on his campaign for re election in november. But i except for nomination for president of the united states but the end of the summer of nineteen seventy-two richard. Nixon was leading democratic presidential candidate. George mcgovern by more than twenty percentage points and then october henry kissinger delivered a message of hope on the vietnam war. You believe that peace is at hand. We believe that an agreement is with inside. The united states had been meeting secretly in paris with representatives of north vietnam to seek peace for months. The talks went nowhere. But on the eve of the nineteen. Seventy two presidential election solution kissinger revealed a breakthrough. Believe that by far the longest part of the road has been traversed gates president reelected violin. Hundred and twenty one electoral votes for president nixon. Who won forty nine states so people voted landslide after election in which kissinger head said pieces at hand knowing that they were going to do with the greatest bombing in human history weeks after the election. Over twelve days and nights during the christmas season of nineteen seventy-two us warplanes dropped more than twenty thousand tons of bombs on north vietnam into seventy two. It appeared that. Nothing i had done or anyone else. Enter had had any effect on the war the civil disobedience not the pentagon papers which had come out a year before and now december two christmas bombing. Swear i richard nixon do solemnly just three days. After his second inauguration president nixon made a surprise announcement on prime time television. it was january. Twenty third nineteen seventy-three. We today have concluded an agreement to end the war and bring peace with honor in vietnam. The peace accords in paris had produced a truce. The north vietnamese troops that were in the south could remain. The united states would not resume the bombing as long as a ceasefire remained but the war was not over. The only thing that was clear. Was that the remaining. Us troops would becoming home. Meanwhile daniel ellsberg and tony rousseau's trial was underway in los angeles with a copying. I took place a year and a half had passed. Since americans had first heard of daniel ellsberg now the public's attention had turned away from the pentagon papers case ellsberg and russo defense presented witness after witness including officials from previous administrations. Meanwhile fundraisers around the country attempted to defray ellsberg's court costs which were substantial. It was more than a thousand dollars a day in those dollars just for transcripts and for other costs expensive process by april defense funds had dried up it would only be a matter of days until the defense had arrest ellsberg and russo fates would be up to the jury but there was one more fundraiser to go. It was on april seventh. Nineteen seventy three and my birthday. I think barbra streisand's first political action. The legendary actress and singer barbra streisand had previously expressed support for the defense. So the fundraisers asked if they could use her house for an event and she said you don't want me to sing and we thought that would be To innovate you asking too much. She said it's a lot more intimate to as for my house industry to sing the fundraiser was actually held at a movie producers house in hollywood joni mitchell was there so we're the beatles so it was put on as an auction of her singing. She had a large volume of popular songs. That she'd sung and an accompanist and people would ask her song and bid so much for for the fundraising and she would do it. Just the company by the piano streisand sang. Happy birthday to ellsberg. Then she asked for ellsberg's favorite song. It was one streisand had.

"Everyone was waiting for the hammer to drop Robert Rosy, Rosenthal remembers wondering with the FBI swoop in and confiscate the documents. Would they all get arrested? Nothing happened that Sunday. I remember being in the Hilton with machine all the reporters Sunday, New York Times and nothing was happening and they were bummed. We were all bummed. You might expect that at the White House, Nixon was below owing his stack over this You'd be wrong. Thanks to all those secret recordings Nixon made. We know exactly what he was thinking. Here. He is talking on the phone that Sunday to General Alexander Haig. Just a note. There's some salty language and some of these tapes, okay? Nothing else of interest in the world's very significant this Goddamn New York Times expose of the most highly classified documents of the war. All that. I see that I didn't read the story. But you mean that was leaked out of the Pentagon? This is a devastating security breach of the greatest magnitude of anything. I have seen. What? What's being done about it then? I mean, I didn't actually we know this is coming out. No, we did not sure. Now I just start right at the top and fire some people. I mean, whoever whatever department came out of the fire the top guy, so no, he's not happy. But for Nixon, this is more than a little tame and what do you hear is next is interesting, but it's something that is a mixed bag. It says a tough attack on Kennedy. It shows that the genesis of the war really occurred. 61 sound that's Clifford Icy, and it's brutal on President Johnson. They're gonna end up in a massive gut fight in the Democratic Party on this thing. See Nixon kind of likes the idea that the New York Times is giving the Democrats trouble. This next call is from Monday morning after the Times ran another section of the Pentagon papers. It's Nixon with one of his White House aides. Hello, It's Mr Ehrlich man calling it Hello, Mr President. The attorney general's called a couple times about these New York Times stories. And he's advised by his people that unless he puts the times on notice, he's probably gonna waive any right of prosecution against the newspaper. And he is going out to see if you would approve his putting them on notice before their first edition for tomorrow comes out. I can't realize her negatives to this in terms of the Vote on the hill. Yeah. You mean to prosecute the time's right? Hell, I wouldn't prosecute the times. My view is to prosecute the goddamn said David told out if you can find out who that is, and I know I mean, could the times be prosecuted? Apparently so. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Well, could you wait one more day they have they have one more day after that. I don't know. I don't know next. Nixon calls Attorney General John Mitchell. Mitchell wants to put the times on legal notice that they're violating the law by possessing or publishing the papers. Nixon finally agrees. Well, look, as far as the time does concern. Hell, there are enemies. I think we just ought to do it in any way.

Protesters were urged to form. Affinity groups engage in civil disobedience. One affinity group at the may day protests included historians howard's in maryland young the linguist known chomsky and dan ellsberg. This was just shortly before ellsberg would become the nation's most famous whistle blower after the publication of the pentagon papers. Well on saturday may day. I interviewed dan. Ellsberg an nsa whistle blower edward snowden as part of virtual conference at the university of massachusetts amherst titled truth descent and the legacy of daniel ellsberg. We'll be playing extended excerpts of that conversation on future broadcast and you can go to democracy now dot org for the length of the whole two day conference. But today we turn to daniel ellsberg who turned ninety on april seventh reflecting on those nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy one protests a half a century ago he began by talking about another major protests the hundred and sixty nine moratorium and the war in vietnam to click to the war movement was in the fall of one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. They chose to call a moratorium which was a weekday stoppage in order to have speeches against war withdrawal from work and from school. And if you couldn't with you or a black armband to school in fact a vice president agnew daughter award black armband and was confined to her house for the next two months and one of the bitter buttons is. The war was free. Kim agnew but are the factors. Two million people weekday not a bright sunny saturday football weekend. Saturday put a weekday took off from work and school in march and what they did not know at that. Time was the nixon on talking. Now october fifteenth nineteen sixty nine. An had made threats of nuclear weapons which were knocked bluffs. Not sure three was going to enact going know when we're third when another strike and by the way the cold moratorium because they decided the general strike which is what it was was too provocative to leftist to inflammatory called it a moratorium not business as usual that kept nixon from using nuclear weapons and escalating and sixty nine. It was the most effective. I was telling credit tune word. We know our our hero. Why carsley for both of us. She's my hero for sure. And i was mentioning tour with her scrapes that she was leading which were week.'. Strikes during friday you know schoolchildren against climate. I told her the history of the moratorium on should think about what they plan to do. Which was one day. The first month two days the second one three days a third ones were not just one day time but an escalating kind of thing with she hasn't yet done with the pandemic but i'm gonna go back to her with this notion so anyway the idea will strike is is the basic notion and that was very it was the most effective action. The credit gun creepers themselves had as i looked on. I didn't expect much because they ended in sixty eight. They didn't tell us what nixon was doing. And my major message was contrary to believe after the election sixty eight this war is not ending. He is not ending it. It's going. it's going to get larger. That was what i had in mind have documents because the people who have ham and knew they were friends of mine not put the moat as one of them. Roger moore said when he left over cambodia but without talking this without a press conference. He said to me leader. We're sure to phone open the safe. He's talking about the threats of nuclear weapons. I've just described which were prevented. Not by him. He was against them but he had seen the nuclear targets scheduled for the fall of nineteen. Sixty-nine and which the people in that stretch didn't even know about when they were doing they didn't know live. He said we should have thrown. Open the safe and screen regarding murder because that's exactly what it was. The day of the mass moratorium. Jay is actually quickly anniversary of the may. First nineteen seventy-one massive rally in washington. Dc and you. You're part of an affinity group you. The affinity grew with howard zinn and noam trump's gay. They chose you as the commander of their affinity group. Because they said you had been in vietnam. You're marine you know. That's that's what a judge recent perceived me as taking over that sergeants role at say mainly it came to say i'll tell you what i think they're referring to. We're sitting in the middle. The theory of rainy davis who just recently died had said they won't stop the war. We'll stop the government. This is going to be my first correct seventy-one the jets had been throwing their medals or the plants were crucial time. The police were very powerful image and medal of honor or another thing and we were there. I expected we in jail. I had with me a book that was very unfortunately barbara deming diem. I g revolution in equilibrium. A book. that kind of converted me on non violence of gandhian nonviolence and. I thought well if they have a book in jail which they never do it turns out. I'll have this with derision jail so when we go out of four in the morning gordon and taxi drivers volunteer to take us off. Mostly black actually. And what do we pay. Nothing no problem. We're on your side of. We went out to fourteen street. And the first person seen is spock and barbara deming whom i recognized so i got into shine my book. I had this book signed by him. By heroes at this point okay later. More howard. zinn trump's key maryland young. Fred grant one. Mitchell goodman is when a couple of others more casually are sitting in the middle of constraints and i think what they're referring to as non coms leadership here was that is to police came quarter at about nine talk in the morning at right angles with a his helmet down a recall. Here's the visors. Coming up the other with the helmet gone with a big club in mace. The came out is at right angles. And i thought it's too early. Who just got here. Let's not in the not in this action right now. So i said let's go. That was li i. I took that an issue for drugs moves so we got up and we moved away and one police. This sounds like a movie right. Might mack senate actually did shoot the other police in the face with mace and his helmet was rolling on the ground in the and the club fell on the ground. Say they get the picture coming out and they were so determined to come down his at one time that they came down on each other and then we went through the rest of the day. We were saying they ended up. Why risk risking thirteen thousand akron after the action had basically been ruben and they put them in. Rfk's -ironically rfk stadium and later much later because they didn't have records on any of them. What they had done was just cleaned through georgetown. Picking up every young person many of whom were children of congress persons which was to their favor in the end. So the tomorrow on that got a little compensated later. And i went on the action. Having been broken we had lunch with i f stone and then i went to new york gnome. Went to a veterans so coffee shot someone in texas howard got arrested. Linder that afternoon for asking collusion. What are you doing when he was meeting. Young christian georgetown richard howard putting the stadium and i went to hear mcgeorge bundy at the council on for a really who used to work for in the clinic. Gone i about the war series of lectures interesting. Because i'd already given the pentagon papers to she and until the mac saying this the truth about these lectures saying is going to be coming ago. He was saying that congress hadn't been lied to. And you know that was no intention to receive any longer so that was the mood and it was a mood. It was a time when a month later when we were putting out the pentagon papers old that the people working with a scar elber wits giannakou channel had to do to get people to find places to stay while the fbi was hunting fours and we were still putting four additions to the pentagon papers. All you have to do to find a place to stay profile was to ask somebody with woman hair. Everybody did men and women had been people and say we're doing something that may help and work small trans and maybe quite literally interest. Are you willing to help. Everybody said yes right away. There was a movement within and there was a movement of young people to filter what was happening in the world. Own rage says well. We started with a civil liberties was wrong. Had to change and they were ready to with their careers and their lives. We need that. No that's daniel ellsberg.

"Ladies and gentlemen, our three of the program for one out of U C. B m 60 80 telephone number. I just saw this. Shifting across social media. Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia, I love it. She's refused to concede. Two years, but Donald Trump, refusing to concede is a violation of everything we hold dear and threats. Democracy. Meanwhile, Job of the hut gets to go on TV and spout her lies about how she really won the governor's race down there and in Georgia. And it's just wrong. And it was racism that denied her that well now. Stacy. The Hut has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Why? Because why not? I mean, when? When there are no standards Have you violate them? We don't have no state we left has zero standards. The Reuters news service reports. US voting rights activists and connoisseur of collecting Han Solo's in carbonite and Democratic Party politicians stay be Stacey Abrams has been nominated. For this year's Nobel Peace Prize for her work to promote nonviolent change via the ballot box. A Norwegian lawmaker said. Oh, those Norwegians is crazy Norwegians. They say that, according to Lars, Halt, Brecken! And I'm sure is not nearly violent enough Sounding in the way I pronounced it, given the way that That these names over Norway are pronounced. Large help break. It's an Abrams work follows in Dr Martin Luther King Junior's footsteps in the fight for equality before the law and for civil rights. Oh yes, she's a hero. Registering people to vote Now get you Nobel Peace Prize nomination. What about the old lady's outside every grocery store I've ever been into an election year Did are they up there, too? No, just Java. Also nominated. Is it cheap in that? I mean, they already have given it to terrorists like Yasser Arafat, but as if the cheapen it further who else has been nominated? Daniel Ellsberg, the guy behind the panic leaking the Pentagon papers. Congresswoman Barbara Lee. Who the hell knows why And black lives matter. I'm not black lives matter has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Now it's really easy to nominate anybody for a Nobel Peace Prize. If you really want to go through all the rigmarole and paperwork of nominate, you can say If you really wanted to. I'm sure you could get yourself nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize of you even need that resume enhancement. It's not the fact that who or what is nominated It's you or what wins. There is frankly, a possibility that black lives matter and or they could have a tie. Stacey Abrams Wins the Nobel Peace Prize. This year. It will be announced until October, so they've got some time. Meanwhile, the president former President Donald Trump was nominated, as was Jared Kushner and his Israeli counterpart. Now, why were they nominated Because they brought about peace. They brought about three peace deals. Between Israel and Arab nations. One would think of prize that focuses on peace would be like him know that bring about peace will be a mitigating factor, a contributing factor in the seriousness but we all know Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because he was not George W. Bush. That was it. It's only because he hadn't been in office long enough. You haven't done anything to Warrant, even a nomination, but they just gave it to him anyway, because he's he's not George W. Bush. Boy. Howdy did we ate George W. Bush, So we've got to go and get him. It's fine. They can. It's their prize. They can give it to anybody they want. It's just pretending that it's somehow prestigious now. It's ridiculous. Back to the idea of The $2000 stimulus. Check this going to be cut. Nine. I just want to bring some attention to this is just saw two during the break. They're haggling over the big details. On the $1.9 trillion Biden. Covad plan that, like I said, it's large. It has very little has to do with opening schools. It's only somewhere in the neighborhood of $180 Billion out of $1.9 trillion Has to do with school funding. And the payouts to people. The stimulus checks their promised $2000. But really, they meant 1400 because people got $600 checks. It's again a little bit of sleight of hand. The total being $2000 even though they were saying we're gonna give you $2000. There's there's no rush. The Biden administration reported last week that they expect a deal to be cut in the bill to be finalized and past sometime in March. Sometime in March. That means That people who are waiting for the $2000 or the $1400. There's some people AOC and pushing said 2000. Why don't you make it 2000? But it Biden doesn't seem all that interested in them. But they They were Promising this money immediately Remember the Georgia runoff election? What was that? It was on January 5th January 5th almost a month ago exactly. I want to play you a clip. It's two clips. Actually, in one, the first voice you're going to hear is Jon Ossoff's Who's now senator from Georgia. Talking about the $2000. Then you'll hear Joe Biden down there when he was campaigning for us often, Warnock About the $2000. Keeping in mind. This is January. 4th. By the way, Joe Biden is keep in mind that when you hear this This was talking about the election. On January, 5th Donald Trump was still president. Then Donald Trump was pushing for and willing to sign a bill that would give $2000 to make the total $2000. It was all you know, people need the money. We must get. The money must get people the money now they're talking about March. Listen to what they were saying right before the runoff election cut nine. Go ahead. We will be able to pass $2000 stimulus checks for the people next week when we win these races in Georgia and get economic relief directly into the bank accounts of the American people who are suffering right now, while that, John, Where'd you could make it immediate difference in your own life? Why the people all across this country because their election will put an end to the block in Washington attitude $1000 STIMULUS Jack that money they would go out the door immediately tell people who are in real trouble. We'll go out the door next week. It will go out the door immediately promising people you're going to get $2000 You vote for these Democrats will they voted for them, and Democrats could pass that right now. My, aren't they? Because they need that as political cover so they can lard up the bill to $1.9 trillion and pay off their friends pay off their donors and bail out cities and states. Ever get the feeling you're being cheated. If you're being lied to Course you are. This is a huge fraud. If a Republican tried anything like this, this would be a scandal. This would be a story. Where is the money? Why not do a standalone bill, can't you these people are hurting. Here's a whole bunch of audio of you saying these people are hurting. Why don't you do something Do help these people they would fly through Congress right now. No problem. It would make it harder to push through the rest of the $1.9 trillion bill. Suddenly, suddenly the incentive to vote for that. To bail out New York. The bailout Illinois to mail out California Suddenly that becomes less urgent. There's less support for that, because even Democrats in Flyover states are a little bit wary of going. Why should we? Why should the people of Nebraska the people who Kentucky The people of Arizona. Why should they be bailing out New York City's Bloated pension fund. Why should we be doing that?

"What I had to say was If if if we could have one investigation, where they would put Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz and Jeff Solly and all these different people that we're all in In this conspiracy to to overturn an election then and they wouldn't have a vote. So there's already 50 people and in the Senate to their Democrats, so you you take out 15 or 20 of them. Those other Republicans that air Did something wrong? They shouldn't be able to vote because I wonder I don't I don't think they can can they can they voted him to save themselves? You know, That is an excellent question, And I want to say that common sense dictates that if the issue is about them that they would not have a vote on that issue. But I can't help but I can't. Yeah, but I don't. I don't know that I'm telling the truth. I don't know if that's the actual case because the rules are, you know, kind of like, I don't know the answer to that question, But I think we need to know because I think you're right. I do agree that that lady's black. Yeah, saying some really bad things about people that are in office that they're they're actually treated us. Well, Yeah, yeah. You know, she's supporting shooting Nancy Pelosi in the head. I mean, that is that is outrageous. But, you know, I think also The people who were her constituents are her constituents. I think they also should be made aware if they're not of some of the other things that she said like that. She believes that Sandy Hook, you know, was a fake that you know it that it never happened. I'm I'm horrified by that. And, you know, I think that the people who are her constituents, they should know that Cause who would support somebody who actually believes that? That is the truth? I don't know. Yeah, I don't know either. You might. Thank you. I I appreciate your phone call, you know? And maybe one of them. Well, you know, it's the press that oft times when somebody's running for Congress who is tasked really for exposing and telling the people with that person actually stands for its two people. It's the opponent, the person who's running against them. Who does opposition research, which tens these days to dig up things that are salaciousness, ridiculous and really don't have a whole lot to do with governing. Um, and the media. The media does the same thing. They'll dig a dig up the salacious things, but I think they're also looking for things that are substantial substantive, and that's what opponent should also do, because it's if it's substantive. It seems that the voters are likely to pay much more attention to it. I don't know if this stuff about Marjorie Green. I don't think that it was exposed to the electorate before she was elected And she said, because she wasn't from running for Congress. Yet at that point, even though it happened a year before she began the process. You know, she says it doesn't matter Doesn't matter wouldn't make any difference to voters. Maybe the voters need to be the ones who make that determination. You don't Congress does also have an office of congressional ethics. At least that they do in the House of Representatives. I'll have to look to see if they have one in the Senate that is an independent, nonpartisan entity charged with reviewing allegations of misconduct against members, officers and staff of the U. S. House of Representatives. And when appropriate, referring matters to the House Committee on Ethics. Maybe they're the ones who can conduct background investigations. Or maybe that office could be expanded so that it can do that with incoming members just to make sure that you don't have somebody who is. Ah, I don't know an agent of Putin or something. Who's gonna be sworn into Congress who hadn't been discovered previously. 80 88 10. Let's go to Tom, unless Cotto's Hey, Tom. Welcome to kgo. Great show. Uh, yeah, I think the answers to all these problems is just having a completely free and unfettered press. You know, back to have in 89 90 start having in beds just you know, President Bush was so paranoid. About and also, of course, the military so power currently, but I have another Vietnam are supposedly the press turned against the military and made the military lose and show them all up to be losers and also that the nonsense So it really don't need any spy agencies, investigative agencies really looking into these people. But just a completely free pressed to go wherever they want. Yes, whatever questions they want. I mean, people are are are stupid enough to, you know, let people like green and we should investigate their conditions when they don't think of a good educational opportunities and so forth. So that this this though no reason, T O prejudge any congressmen like you know, going across the tripartite system like you mentioned earlier. Yeah, but here's the thing. The press could do a certain amount and looking into people's backgrounds. Um, if you've ever had a security clearance done. And I did, and it was for a top secret security clearance. And then when I went into the military, I had another one done for a secret security clearance, and they're very, very thorough and they get into things. That the media can't you know, Journalists can't have access to they get into your tax return. So they get into your, um, um your credit reports. They get into even your health records. I mean, they can get into anything about you. You don't have any real privacy rights when it comes to that kind of a background investigation, because you've signed off on it, and they go out and they conduct this kind of a background investigation. And through that they may be able to get phone records and things that they have suspicion. They may be able to reveal that you're in cahoots with some foreign government that has nefarious intent toward the United States of America, and that's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about really finding out if this is a person who is worthy of the most sensitive information. Which members of Congress do have access to? Yeah, well, the Pentagon papers case show that the press center it was completely free and and couldn't be us and said her pre censored. And also the utilization of Iraq Toe George horseshit. W Bush. They tried to keep all that nonsense secret, you know, made up cherry picked intelligence, but the press did their job and show that was all a complete lie. So if there's any more restrictions on the press, we're just gonna have more awards like Vietnam and the invasion of Iraq and anything else for keeping secrets. Like protecting that police officers on the local level is a good example and keeping them in and I agree with you. I agree with you totally. But there is information that the press doesn't have the right to access. There's a lot of information. The press doesn't have the right to access and with an investigative agency. When they're doing a background investigation, it's something that is entirely different. As far as the Pentagon papers are concerned, the press didn't dig that up. That was revealed by Daniel Ellsberg. Daniel Ellsberg was working. He put him He put it all together. He was there during the Gulf of Tonkin. And so he's the one who released the Pentagon papers. And then he was arrested for having released the Pentagon papers, and ultimately, he was released from prison. I mean, you know, we can go back into the case of Daniel Ellsberg. He was a real hero because he was able on. I think it was The New York Times who ended up publishing it, and then it became a matter of public record. You could put the genie back in the bottle, and so other papers picked it up as well. But he was a real hero in exposing the reality of what went on. When the government was lying to us about, you know, the whole beginnings on D justification for the war in Vietnam. All right, Stick with us..

"I do worry a little bit about driving people's underground so that you don't know who you're dealing with. And then you know, one thing I heard reference, say, hope everybody heard him during the days Well, The government had files on everybody. And that was a problem and the other thing and this call for unity that keep hearing from the Republicans. I mean, it's basically a call for white supremacy. Republicans can be in and out of power. Democrats convene in and out of power, but white people are always in power. And that's what they call the unity is a call for white unity. Chip Givens. What about these dissenters? I mean, where we going with this? Well, I think that's a really good point, and I would like to go back to something you said at the beginning of the segment about week FBI documents. A lot of the FBI documents, including those we know about white supremacists. Infiltration of law enforcement were leaked to the press by a man named parent Calvary Carry out really was The only black agent and his field office, I believe would be Minneapolis Field office. He was extremely concerned by the races and he witnessed and he went and took information. The public has a right to know and gave it to the media. He's in federal prison right now because he was convicted under the espionage Act for Italians what the FBI was doing. The espionage Act is, of course, the same world. They went after Daniel Ellsberg under for leaking the Pentagon papers, the same wall. They went after going after Edward Snowden under the same well, they've gotten looking weak under, so I think it's really important to remember that some of what we know a lot of what we know. Because a very grave people and these institutions tell us the truth. And our government goes and puts him in jail under the espionage Act, saying that if you tell the American people what their government is doing to them, or in their name, you're basically a spy. Right? Which is trying to take that should about fascism. Right? You know? Calling a whistleblower five. That's pretty fascistic to me, and I would just point out that you know, before Trump was an office, we had the director of the FBI, James Comey, going around giving speeches about There's now been debunked, called the Ferguson effect where he would say that because of black WASP matter protest because people were concerned the police for being violent crime was going up. Well, that's completely false. But that's one of the lies that was central to the first Trump campaign. We also know that the FBI was infiltrating the Muslim community. Ending informants called Mosque crawlers into health is a warship where no one was suspected of any crimes. And they would often times after 80 provocateurs and two of these plots, he sort of fake terrible losses. Bobbi Agent provocateurs. Donald Trump sites to them in his Muslim ban executive order justifying the Muslim. They're in one of those cases. It was a individual who was convicted a judge down to be an example in perfect entrapment. The type of environment that the people of the FBI have been created for decades of hostility towards this end of hostility towards last descent, in particular, demonizing Muslims that helped to set the stage for a demagogue like Donald Trump. To be elected. It's not all the FBI son Yes. Mm hmm. Probably back on Twitter. Sure what happened? I mean, that's that's a really tough call because letting some of his tweets or clearly inciting people, but also allowing attack monopoly the power to censor leader. Can be very disturbing. I would point out the people that Donald Trump is not the first leader fans from social media. The first such case of that was a Raphael Korea, the left wing Socialist president of Ecuador, who was banned from Facebook, right and the president of Mexico. The left wing President Mexico is very Upset about The Trump fans on Twitter. That might surprise you. But you know we've seen would be sort of Pete tied governments and laugh in America, where they been targeted by U. S imperialism has been targeted by U. S hegemony. There's been moved to sort of sensor or curtail them or take information off the Internet. That's too sympathetic to them so well, I do understand the in poll. You when you have someone on Twitter, you know, use the platform, said American president election was not fair and itwas And come over. He was going step further in finding it interesting that the government sure wherever wherever you want, you want said to me because I agree. As I said earlier that a.

"Madeleine brand. It is one of history's most famous whistle blower cases. The Pentagon papers, thousands of classified government documents proving the Johnson administration had expanded military action in Vietnam and into other countries in Southeast Asia. Lied to Congress and the public about that. Daniel Ellsberg, the Rand corporation analysts who leaked the documents became a household name. He first gave them to The New York Times and the journalist Neil She hand who won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking that story, and Supreme Court precedent protecting journalists from government interference was established. In the so called Pentagon Papers case, which allowed the times to publish over the objections of the Nixon administration. Well, Neil she hand died last week. He was 84 years old, and until now he never told the story of just how he obtained the Pentagon papers. It completely upends the narrative. We thought we knew with details straight out of a cold War spy thriller. We're going to talk about this now with Janny Scott, who interviewed Neil she hand before he died. And she wrote about this for the New York Times. Welcome. Thank you. Great to be here. Good to have you. Well, you interviewed him many years ago for many hours, and he only agreed to the interview as long as it wasn't published while he was still alive. Why did he want this story held until after he died. What he told me was that he had never wanted to embarrass or in any way seemed to disrespect Daniel Ellsberg, who obviously was the person who took the extremely brave step to copy these documents against the law and then make them available. And I think Central to Neil Sheehan's account is the relationship between the two of them. And she ends concern that Ellsberg was acting at the time in Shand opinion recklessly and his concern that somehow this was all going to get out to the FBI. And the papers would be then returned to a government safe as she and put it, so he didn't want to tell the story, at least as he described it to me because he didn't want to say anything that would take away from the glory that Ellsberg deserved. Well, how did he He was behaving recklessly. Well, Ellsberg was very nervous as she and tells it, he was originally told by Ellsberg that he could copy them. But then, when he went up to Cambridge, Massachusetts, from Washington to make the copies, Ellsberg told him no, no, You can't copy them. You could just read them and take notes. I think Ellsberg would probably say that he never said that he could copy them. But I'm not so sure about that, anyway. She is convinced that he was told he could So there's that. And then he felt that Ellsberg had done other things like Take them to copy shops, according to Sheehan, and copy them there which he thought was reckless pay for copies with personal checks, which, you know, all of which, in the sort of cloak and dagger thing that they were doing seemed to she end to be endangering the secrecy they had to maintain. Yeah. And again. That's so that the FBI wouldn't swooped down and arrest Ellsberg and prevent the publication entirely. So she and goes up to Cambridge. And meets with Ellsberg and Ellsberg. According Tol is account that you wrote about in the paper says Okay, I'm going away. You can have the key to my apartment and read the documents here. While I'm away and actually lets him have unfettered access to the Pentagon papers. Well, actually, it wasn't Ellsberg's apartment was a separate apartment where Ellsberg was had stashed the documents and that time or perhaps the next time, he said, You could make a copy of the key and then hit, he told she and I'm going to go out of town for a few days, And he sees that opportunity, called his wife in Washington and said, Get up here and bring as many All the cash in the house and as many suitcases and bags as you could get your hands on, Gosh, because the idea was they were going to go toe local copy stores and just copy these What 7000 or so pages one by one and then stored them in the suitcases. That's exactly right. That's precisely what their plan was. And he had spoken to the Boston bureau chief of the New York Times two to find out where was a coffee shop where he could do this discretely, and he had been directed to a suburban copy shop. And then he had. He had already signed in under a different name into a motel in Cambridge, And then his wife came up and signed into a whole other hotel under another name, and they went about systematically taking the papers out of the apartment in in batches. Taking him into this copy shop in Medford, Massachusetts, copying them into the night, bringing them back in clothes and taking the copies she and was taking the copies to a locker in the Boston bus terminal, where he was going to store them before they would fly them back to Washington. My gosh. Well, So was he afraid that someone at this copy shop in Medford might get suspicious? Well, ultimately, yes. They were very afraid of all sorts of things. But what happened at the copy shop in Medford was the machines basically broke down under the load, as he described it, And so they had to find another shop, which was in Boston and, according to Neil Sheehan and his conversation with me after a while, the guy who ran the Boston copy shop who was a Navy veteran. Noticed that these were classified documents and as she and tells it, he explained to the guy. Well, I borrowed these from Harvard Professor. They've been declassified or something like that. So you know, I have to get them back to him really quickly, And his sense was that the copy shop owner was satisfied by that explanation. Oh, gosh. Okay, So then they have all these copies 7000 pages or so stuffed in these suitcases. Then what? Yeah, well, first they're in the bus terminal locker or lockers, And then they take them to Logan Airport, and they get on a plane and they buy three seats, not to one for her one for him and one for the bags of Pentagon papers, and they strap it in with a seatbelt flight back to Washington. And then he goes to work reading them and Summarizing them for his editors in order to get the approval to proceed with a A story And meanwhile, Daniel Ellsberg has no idea this has happened, and he's thinking what I've given access to this reporter. He's not publishing and is he getting You know, frustrated? Well, Ellsberg has written about this in his memoir. I mean, I think he was assuming it sounds like that she and had followed his instructions and only taken notes. And then he had gone back to the times and he was, you know, going through the process of getting approval for what would inevitably be a big Syriza's So she and as he described it, to me, sort of strong Ellsberg along for several months to cover up for the fact that they were reading all 7000 documents planning out a very lot lengthy and detailed series, which documents to excerpt and all that. They were going through a really rigorous process with a lot of material, and he was having to stall Ellsberg and also he thought there was a possibility go to another newspaper. But the thing that she and claims he was most Concerned about was that Ellsberg would you know, go to somebody and word would get out and all of a sudden, the Justice Department under the next administration would go to court.
