"federal bureau prisons" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer

"How are you, my friend? Good job. Good morning. Good morning great. Thanks for joining us, Anthony. Because you could really breakdown all these things that kind of we don't understand, like, like another house that you year, every committee when does this, they, they'll tell us about the John dean is going to be before the house TV, Sherry committee today. Anthony. Well, let's. Joe taking about from from the shadows there where we he's the line around and they want to do an inquiry. It's not an impeachment hearing, and we can narrative on it, that suggest that they want to get some insight, I guess, from John dean, because of his experience with Watergate. And he's been critical of people all over the years, and GM self pled guilty went to jail, Nixon administration, and all of a sudden now, crusader, I'm not really sure what he could add to the to the narrative for them. He compares this to, to Watergate, what President Trump has been it's against they accused of -struction you know, it seems to me when I'm looking at this and considering it, you know what happened in. Watergate is very similar to what Democrats did President Trump and trying to bug his office, spiders, office. So I'm not sure how it doesn't play in that in that vein as opposed to John dean, suggesting that President Trump is worse than president Nixon in what he did. I mean just absolutely. No comparison, there's no similarity to any similarity ic- is the reverse the Democrats tried to spark out the president. They're the ones that invaded him. And they didn't do it based on information. They based on they just did it because they wanted to investigate him and his family to see up with. So. Things in the logic will logic doesn't exist anymore, Washington anyway. I mean it's really just they don't like this man. They'd never liked him. He's not an institutional Pepe guy, and they want to do whatever they can to try to prevent him from being re elected. Yeah. That's a brilliant. Take. We gotta grab that quote throughout the day on the radio station. Anthony, that is exactly right, the Watergate analogy comes from how this whole investigation started. And that is exactly like that. You have to stay did spy and member member. When the president goes, I think, President Obama's spying on me and everybody and there was, this is ridiculous. What is it when they talk about obstruction of Justice, and I'm talking about the narrative, Anthony, you and I talked about this a lot, you once you put a narrative out there. It becomes the news. And then it goes into Wikipedia, and then it becomes like facts now with their obstruction of Justice. I'm not seeing how that holds that what is the. Could you maybe you could explain to me what obstruction of Justice, the president committed? I'm coming. Considered. Here's one is the conduct of someone. And then you have to look at the intent of someone. So let's we'll look at the head, first of all, because you can't prosecute and you take a big deal with they had an attempt to do something. Well, you don't have the underlying crying, because collusion was considered vinegar, this never happened, and even molar is much as he tries to help you decide he was not able to come up with until it information, or evidence to support that the president orders family accrued with, with Russian. If you don't have the collusion, you're arguing that he tried to obstruct you Vesta Gatien to prevent them from finding collusion. Well they didn't find collusion. So what exactly are you suggesting he was strutting? Now. You don't let the -sarily need to have the underlying offense for someone to suggest you attempted to impede investigation. That's true. But you do need the intent ultimately convict somebody or even charge somebody that's the way today. So they're trying to. Take these these ten or eleven or twelve inches of where the president said something that one could look at it and say, well, is that an attempt to stop the investigation? Is he trying to be trying to change somebody testimony? But again, you have a president that kept saying there's no collusion turns out he one hundred percent. Right. So whatever he did was not an attempt to obstruct because it didn't exist in the first place was he trying to hide or stop investigation from even going forward. You know the trying to break this down to its finest points just because they, they don't have anything else. Yeah. Obstruction is, when you, you know, if you've got a grand jury investigation injury Cepeda, and I tell you Joe, I, I'd like to testify one way. Do you remember the circumstances this way? Can you hide something? You know that, you know, you had trees don't show it or that text message. That's an attempt to struck Justice if you burn all of your emails, or you can kill the computer, and you, you, you bleed and you pull the emails. The fear that seems to be obstruction of Justice today. I mean, maybe I'm all, but that's where I think of shorts adjustment act real clear example of obstruction. But of course, that bad thing going, those Hillary Clinton. You know, I can't win you know, he does an incredible thing with, with Mexico. I I'm a presence that I'll be trader now acquiescing to his demands, and he liked to do, but they spin it. They spend it on watching the news on something that coming up with all these reasons why they just don't want to give him credit for anything. I died hell China put them in their place. Our biggest threat. Nobody cares. It just doesn't matter what he does. It's getting silly. And I think it's gonna backfire on them. I really knew the election. Yeah. You know, NC two, you know, this, when you have a client, like hope Hicks, we're talking about Don, Mcgann the all these former White House staffers, there, the resisting congressional subpoenas. I mean what problems will they have because they are doing this. Well, it's hard to say you know, if the president wants to serve his executive authority in some instances, certainly do that. The courts have ruled that it's one of those things that you're not sure about the great hair. Areas in the water generally is, and sometimes the shade shades among the gray or numeral. So that's the problem you always had really nothing really just that black and white in the law. But again, the government, the, the president is a certified who all these people are we using testify can congress vote to hold them in contempt of court or contempt of congress, rather, choose me certainly they can do that the question because I think it's some point have forty you want to go with this prosecutors have discretion congress has discretion and they're not utilize the any of this double non. They're just they just don't wanna stop, and it's hard to even reconcile as a lawyer, or somebody on the stand, because they're not really using the Lord just using their own personal than data their beliefs, their desire to just destroy this president of the United States and interferes with everything not only law, but logic and reason objectivity dogs yesterday in. And then in Washington, they could say anything imagine if someone said about your claims, oh, we want him in jail. We want him and you want her in jail, Nancy Pelosi tells members she wanted to see the president in jail for what for what? And then she says, it's just as again, changed the narrative, because the presence clutching it in England doing a great job in Europe and they say something away with that. Well, you know, the problem he'll listen they're they're protected. They could say those type of things it's not it's not against the war. It's not. Right. It's not fair, but they're, they're all saying that. And look. The politics is stupid to certain level. Now that it's, it's pretty discussing a real used since they really I can't say more about it than that. Because again, it's really not about the law so much as it's just about the personal beliefs, and their feelings in their attempts to skew it a direction, they should be, and what would you do it does not be gonna add much? I think it's going to be just a rehashing of the whole thing is this obstruction. They're gonna ask him these opinion, and he going to give an opinion and say, yes, I think it is to do. What were what your opinion? Now mean they missed the molar he was the guy when they thought the president and even was considering fiery, they lost their wins over it. And then all of a sudden, he comes down says, there's no collusion. They don't wanna accept it. Yeah. What would you do your representing Paul Manafort? They put them in solitary in Rikers island. I mean as an attorney. And I mean what would you do? I mean that. A violation of his new process. I mean, you know, his civil rights important, even when you go into prison, you are pretty much the property of the Federal Bureau prisons, and judges, and prosecutors and even the fed don't have a whole lot of input in that because that's a separate institution and they have to make their decisions based on what they think, is you're right. What if the person civil rights are starting to be violated in his health is starting to be compromise and it appears as if it's being done, just as some type of retaliation that certain eagle before federal judge problem is what settle judging before, or they sympathizers of, of Trump or the objective, federal judges that to make the call. And, and I believe that most of the judges will make the right call I think most of the men and women that sit on the federal judge are good decent people who have a sense of object, tippety. But the problem is Joan, you know, politics is politics. That's what. I would do I'd have to approach it from that Bain and making his public as possible and get after four federal judge. Yeah. Violating my client civil rights is prison sentences prison sentence. But at the same time there has to be some modicum of decency and you have to take care of people based on their needs. And nobody. Better than we're taking care of him. Yes. So true passed Bill. Free health care for you. See. Two hundred million dollars. And then. It's craziness. It's cremating. Anthony listened me. Love you, man. Appreciate it very much. Vectra me on. It's always a pleasure. Thank you. Gotta see Anthony in the courtroom. You've seen have you seen Anthony.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro. And I'm Audie Cornish. Over the past couple of weeks. We've heard from many government employees frustrated by the ongoing partial government shutdown. Some of them are taking their frustration to court. A group of federal employees is suing the Trump administration over the shutdown claiming the administration has acted and conscious or reckless disregard of labor laws. Heidi Barack Wade's is a lawyer representing the plaintiffs in the suit she joins me now in the studio. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. So I understand of the eight hundred thousand federal workers kind of affected by the shutdown. A good number are considered essential. Right. Can you talk about who your clients are because part of this group we filed a case with two plaintiffs. Although we've been contacted by thousands of people who want to join the case the tunings plans both worked for the Federal Bureau prison. So all of the employees is for example that work at the Federal Bureau of prisons at an institution are deemed essential, even during government shutdown. We need someone at those prison. Taking care of the inmates. There's a wide variety of essential employees around the country border patrol federal firefighters, the people who we traditionally think of his first responders that people who are important to truly keep the rest of us safe. So what are your plaintiffs asking for in this suit? Well, first of all all of the planes is with whom I'm working all the federal employees that have been in touch with us. The number one thing that they want is for the shutdown to end right now, they're living in a state of turmoil. They don't know how long it's gonna last or when they're gonna get their next paycheck. But they're also asking for a financial compensation. Right. I mean, what are they looking for? We'll absolutely and they're entitled to it. So in the complaint what we're seeking hopefully congress will pass legislation retroactively pay all of the employee's. I'm on top of that. However, they're entitled to liquidated damages liquidated damages. It's a Heyman equal to the amount of the wages that were not paid on time. When the crowd, essentially, you get paid. Because you experience the delay. Yes. When the law was passed, the lawmakers determined this isn't supposed to be punitive towards the employer, but it's to compensate the employees for the interest charges that late payment penalties the cost the harm that they've suffered by not getting paid on time. So the government has argued in the past that law, prohibits them federal law, prohibits them from spending money that congress has not allocated and you've dealt with this in the past right? And a judge ruled against them. What was the argument from the judge? Yes. In two thousand and thirteen we filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of essential employees who worked during the October two thousand and thirteen government shutdown. The government filed a motion to dismiss claiming that their hands were essentially tied because they anti deficiency act on the judge ruled against them, and confirmed that in fact, the government had violated, the fairly standards act and still should have paid these essential employees. On time during the shutdown. I understand that the damages awarded in that twenty thirteen case it took them four years right to win that in court. Was it worth all the effort? Well, the government is still in the final stages of calculating the damages and the twenty thirteen case damage still haven't been paid who sued in two thousand thirteen. Yes, ligation is unfortunately, never fast, and we had to resolve legal issues that I spoke about earlier. So from my perspective is legal issues are identical. And I'm optimistic that this case will move much faster, quite frankly, none of my plaintiffs. None of my clients. We shouldn't have to sue to get them. This back pair this liquidated damages. The government just shouldn't have shut down. They shouldn't put the federal workforce. In this position. They have to file a lawsuit to recover money to them. Do you think these lawsuits are aiming also to send that message absolutely all of the clients that I've worked with that their primary number one goal that this is not a way to treat the federal workforce. This is having real life consequences on hard-working blue-collar families people who work in often very dangerous jobs for example on Friday alone in the Federal Bureau of prisons. There was an inmate who was murdered two staff were injured responding when that inmate was getting stabbed. There were a total of at least that I know of eight staff injuries in the bureau of prisons at various institutions around the country. So these people are going to work at very dangerous jobs and Dacia get paid on time. Heidi barracuda. Thank you so much for speaking with us.

And it's we've you the Trump shutdown is another example of what happens when the government plays politics with the federal workforce. If you remember the government shutdown nineteen ninety five and ninety six Newt Gingrich said part of the reason for it was that President Clinton had not talked to him on their way back from soccer beans funeral on Air Force One. And he felt snubbed. And therefore he shut down the government this time, even though in in the first two years of his administration, the Republicans control both houses of the congress. President Trump was unable to get funding for his supposed wall. And now he's throwing tampering much like Newt Gingrich did and making federal employees pay the price and David for one about this.
