"If we're going to heal this country. Then we we've got to see transformative changes in our education economic healthcare in criminal justice systems and That means. In my judgment. Our president. Our next president has to see that every child regardless of where they're born into whom the color of their skin, their economic status whether they're immigrants are whether they are citizens that every child is able to reach their God, given potential through education that means two things. One, we've got to have free early learning for every child. And secondly we've got to offer free higher education for every student who stays in school stays out of trouble and makes certain grades. They don't have to go to college, but they can get higher. Education are training, so they can get a better job or they can go on to be an engineer. To fix the economic system. We've got to have more and better jobs not to have you know. NEW NEW uses for renewable energy to combat climate crisis. We've got to. We've got to create jobs. For All. These people who have been. Displaced by krona virus. There are many jobs that this country needs done that. The country needs to pay for in that as we've got to have a president, who is going to face up to the fact that it is wrong when one percent on fifty percent of the wealth of three families, rather fifty percent of the wealth and one percent ninety two percent. And when when large companies pay no taxes at all, so we've got to have a president who is going to fix our tax system for for decades? We've been told that it's the immigrants in. It's the welfare. Mothers is the people on government programs that are dragging down the middle class. Taxpayers know is some middle class taxpayers that are footing the bill for the one percent, so we've got to reverse that in our next president has addressed this issue, and then we live in the richest country in the world, and no one should go to bed. Hungry homeless without healthcare healthcare must be a right for every American and you know it doesn't matter whether you are. Know whether you're poor whether you've got mental or physical disabilities or whether you are in prison. You know this country is big enough and strong enough to take care of you, so we we need to make some changes and we can do it. We can, if we work hard enough and long enough in this for this election in two thousand and twenty, if if the people on the streets will. Will, after they protest will will come back and we'll work if they will find a candidate. A local candidate or steak, candidate or presidential candidate in whom they believe in trust in worked for them and help them get elected. We can change the way things happened in this country. If we elect a good mayor, they will appoint a police chief. If we elect a good governor, they will appoint a good prison commissioner. If we elect good president, they will appoint good US attorneys judges, but it is up to us as citizens to to make this kind of change happen. We can make this country what it should be, but you know. We just gotTA DIG in and. We gotta do it. Governor Don Siegelman thank you so much on behalf of my listeners because I don't really speak for more people, but number one I.

"You had went to pay for your legal defense so when you got out of. Prison your wife had medical issues from a horrific car accident. You suffered before you went to jail and your kids. You know you talked about the effect. Being imprisoned has on families. Your kids were young. They were what eleven fourteen when this all started. And now they're adults. Your son went to law school, so he could work on your case I mean this. This has derailed your entire life. And as we mentioned before it sounds through everything all the issues with Judge Fuller, and the the his jury instructions and everything else that you had a perfect case for appeal, and you did go to the supreme. Court and you were waiting for them to take the case. They just said No. We're not going to hear it. It's the what. I yeah, we appeal three times and the the the first time we appealed it was based on. That initial finding by the three judge panel. That there were substantial questions of law and fact that would likely result in reversal and so the Supreme Court. Is that point? Sent the case back to the eleventh circuit. Saying? Take another look at this based on the. The actual definition of bribery which is. Not Not involving campaign contribution, but where there are, there's a briefcase of money where there's some self-enrichment scheme and the eleventh circuit said No. We still think that settlement is guilty, so we're GONNA lead. Let the convictions stand. We took the issue of acquitted conduct up to the Supreme Court as well. and that was that was. Denied. And then we saw a trial, we were asking for discovery because we knew that we had. Evidence that. The lead prosecutor was emailing my Republican opponents campaign manager. Giving them updates on the investigation. So, we thought if if there was A. There was one email that the united. States. Department of Justice had the probably were others, and they were probably linked called, roved prosecution, and of course. Our request for discovery was denied so anxious for. Those Call Roe v by also surface at some point because I'm sure that we would find his fingerprints all over my case, but now you're telling us that that that Donald trump the orange menace is trying to make nice with Karl. Rove so maybe can use some of his dirty tricks. In the two thousand twenty election, we know that that trump will stoop to nothing to. Do know no boundaries when it comes to trying to do whatever he needs to do to stay in office. Because I think he knows that the minute he's a civilian again. He should be arrested and sent to jail. He would if if there was justice in this country. What would hopefully they'll build chain him to Mnuchin to. Five hundred billion dollars to their friends and not. Telling us out offering any kind of public accountability. This is why they got rid of all of the Inspector General's. Yeah They didn't want any report coming out on how they were going to know. And Yeah I'm just awful, and it seems like the trump administration is following that Bush playbook I mean he even brought in someone to do away with anyone in the administration, who is not suitably pro-trump, enough This is not how America is supposed to be Don Siegelman. I'm telling you the the book. Just broke my heart, even though I knew the story. I knew what happened reading it again in this one you know. Volume was just heartbreaking because I see in you. What what? We could've been what we could have had, and there's no reason for this and the fact that the Democratic Party did nothing to come to. Your defense sours me on them even more obviously I have no. No love lost for the Republicans and I'm not even going I'm just really disappointed that we don't have a party that we can rely on to stand up for the rule of law, and for the really good people. We have who are working hard for the people of this country. Well Amen. That's all I can say to that go. You you have a phenomenal of putting things and. So, sometimes. You know the less said the better. Let you be my spokesperson I. Gotcha and I I wish I could I'd scream from the rafters and I do, and I have a you know I'm so. Appreciative to have this opportunity to speak with you about this again. I've followed your case all these years. We spoke a couple of times and I spoke with Dana while you were imprisoned as well and. I, just my heart goes out to you and your family for what you've been put through. This should happen to nobody. Nobody in this country ever and yet it does. The abuse of power that happened to me happened. In the in the in the in the halls of power in in. The Court House what happened to. Two more George Floyd and Eric Gardner and others happens on the streets of America every day, and you know, and it is we we'd. Know again the point of my book is that we we. You know George Floyd paid the ultimate price. Now it is up to us as citizens to create new policies, new politics and new laws to protect the most vulnerable. From abuses of power by police prosecutors are presidents. Without a doubt, the book stealing our democracy is officially out this Tuesday. Do yourself a favor by it. Read it share it. Everybody needs to know this story and you're right governor. Siegelman, it's not just about you, but it is about you because the the Republicans and Karl Rove saw somebody who was. A really good governor who was beloved by the people from both parties. Who had you know? Who who could have brought wonderful things to this nation, and they went after you for precisely those reasons, and this should never happen again, and what kills me is that? You know nobody came to your rescue. Nobody is coming to our rescue right now. That's why we have to do it. We all must stay out in the streets and protests for what's right and most importantly we need to vote. We need to get this criminal out of office, but all our problems will not then be solved because Joe Biden. I'm sorry is not. A return to the Obama Administration will not fix these things. The Obama Administration led us down on your behalf as well and we need. We need to do better than that. We need to do better as a nation. We need to do better as a party. We need to do better. Well let me let me be closed by saying saying this if if we're going to end systemic racism..

"You know the history from there is convicted sent to prison for. Well spent five years in prison right now, there was a time you were let out because. There was your lead out on appeal. Where were a three judge panel from the Circuit Court of Appeals said, wait a minute. This is bogus. Let you out to. For the in advance of the retrial. And during that time it looked like you know you're going to prevail because you didn't do anything wrong. It did look like going to prevail. What happened? Sixty minutes and I you know I give them credit this largely because Scott pelley out a twelve minute segment February the twenty, fourth, two, thousand and eight. Where they? Had I a Republican attorney general from Arizona. Who had been John McCain campaign manager co-chairman in two thousand. WHO said that? You know this Alabama's one state. Where they they couldn't. They couldn't beat circle fair and square, so they targeted him with this prosecution, then he, they interviewed the witness that had. Nick Bailey who was? The Real Crook and all less And he said he told sixty minutes that he had been he had. Either spoken to or been. Smoking the investigators prosecutors over seventy times over the course of some four and a half years and he had been made to write and rewrite his proposed testimony over and over until he got his answers. The way the government wanted them. There was a parallel government paralegal present. Tomorrow Grimes a Republican. Who? Gave a sworn statement, a whistleblower excitement and. She said that she was present, while that particular witness was coached and cajoled and pressured to remember things that he clearly did not recall. Of. So that's that's how the government got. Its conviction in the chargers were initiated not by the FBI but by Jeff Jeff sessions retired F. B. I., agents. I was brought to trial one month before the two thousand six elections. By the US attorney whose wife whose husband was call Rose Business, partner Billy Canary. So. While I was while I was. Being investigated and charged. The US. Attorney's husband was connected to Karl. Rove, but he was also running my opponent's campaign. Fund and there are so many instances like this that are just so wrong that in a normal court of law would have a case thrown out immediately conflict of interest, but you had a judge judge fuller. who was so against you from the start that on every front? I mean you were not allowed to even bring up the idea that this was a political prosecution. You weren't allowed to mention politics in your defense. I mean I would think that on appeal alone would have the case thrown out. You would. You would think also that this is. This was revealed after by. Conviction! But. John Conyers was pressing the Department of Justice for an investigation. They sent a letter. A sealed letter to the House Judiciary Committee that was released by an anonymous whistleblower in the I guess you can have an anonymous before in the House Judiciary Committee staff. It was published by the project on government oversight. And the the letter in the letter from the Department of Justice John Conyers say said. Politics was not involved in settlements prosecution, but the the lead prosecutor conducting the investigation. Was emailing settlements, opponents campaign manager, giving him updates on the. Department of Justice investigation now I don't know what you would call that. But the Department of Justice said it wasn't political, and it wasn't political that my you know my my the US attorney's husband was was working for my opponent managing his campaign so anyway we we have a lot to straighten out in this country and you know I'm. I'm sorry that I was the Guinea pig, but we've got a wrote this book so I could expose. Some of the. The wrongdoing, but the book is not about me. It is about saving our democracy. What happened to me happen? We can't erase it. I can't go back. not governor of not going to be governor nugget. Enter the president your rice, but you know we've got to. We've got to protect our democracy from these kinds of abuses of power. Now let's take it down to to back down to George Floyd and Eric Gardner and We will let let one one more thing. I want to get at. Though you you. You point so many figures in the last time we spoke. The last two times we spoke it was about problems. For instance, those people still in prison to are such great risk of cove infection. It's just the way people are treated. When you were I found guilty, you were you were led from the courtroom in shackles. You are taken directly to prison and put in solitary confinement. You are held in solitary confinement for an inordinate amount of time on a number of occasions for what I'm John I'm I was sick for you reading this I. I was arrested once for daring to try to my then Congressman Allen West a question about his vote to privatize Medicare and thrown in jail, and put in solitary by myself for a matter of hours and I thought I was going crazy I can't imagine what you went through, and they did this to you. For what good reason for no good reason, and there's no controls over this. This still happens every day that prisoners are thrown into isolation and left there for weeks and. Let me. Let me mention this. I got it I got a text I got an email. Indirectly from an inmate in prison today. Going to reveal his name of course, because they would get him in trouble right, but he is, he has been in solitary confinement for fifty seven days now, because Kobe nineteen. He. He did not test positive. He didn't have the virus, but he has been segregated as well as. I don't know how many other inmates have been subjected to this kind of. You know it. Unnecessary it short of torture for sure I mean it's not like waterboarding, but it does pray it does it does? It it's it's not pleasant. And I spent fifty nine days in solitary confinement. He's spent fifty seven days so far..

"Is an inherent risk of corona virus infection quote by attending the rally you in any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to Cova Nineteen and agree not to hold. Donald J trump for President Inc box center ASM Global, or any of their affiliates, directors, officers employs agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury. That's how little regard this president holds his supporters. Forget about the people who don't like him. This is what he's doing to his supporters. They could get sick, so what as long as they're cheering me on? Our system is broken horribly so and you think it only started during the Bush during the. Floor, Freudian slip there during the trump administration. You're sorely mistaken and this hour we will. Relieve you of those notions. We're just going to get right to him I promised. You Governor Don. Siegelman and I'm thrilled that he joins me now. Hello Governor how you doing. I'm doing great Nicole. I could listen to you all day long. Thank you. It is both informative and I was smiling most of the time, because if if anybody does it believe that our democracy is being stolen just need to listen to your broadcast. I mean. How can the Treasury Secretary? Keep from the public how they're spending five billion dollars loads. Of our money and you know what this what this was. Brought up in the negotiations over the cares act that the that the the the businesses that received the P P P funds had to be disclosed, and they sorta just pushed it off, pushed it off, pushed it off. And and frankly a shame on me. I didn't follow it closely enough, but if I had I guess I would have seen that Steven. MNUCHIN never agreed to make that information public as has always been done in the past. Well let me let me I'm GonNa jump from here. Of back to beyond a Taylor and of the three police officers who? Shot and killed her. And the reason they're still walking on the street is covered in my book stealing our democracy and let me explain. Explain why this is. while. My Book is relevant to what has happened to George Floyd Eric Gardner. Trayvon Martin and so many others that have been killed before and sets. It is because. OUR OUR SYSTEM I grand jury system allows prosecutors to set. Cops who kill people free in the secrecy of a grand jury they could be no build by not presenting evidence to the grand jury that they're guilty, but by presenting evidence to the grand jury that makes the homicide look like is justified, and that's why we see so few. Police who have been involved in fatal shootings and innocent citizens convicted charged with anything and so. In my book stealing our democracy I talk about reforming our justice system. One of the key elements is to ensure that. Both targets have grand jury such as myself as I was back in two thousand and. Two, through eight or whatever it was Or the family members of victims such as beyond Taylor or Eric Gardner, or are George Floyd have the right to have a lawyer present in the grand jury as a check on truth now. Why do we need a check on truth? Because there is no judge president, it is a secret proceeding and the United States Supreme Court has given blanket immunity to prosecutors. To willfully and intentionally present false evidence or withhold exculpatory evidence to get an indictment or conviction. This up now in the in the Los Angeles Times on January the fourth, January the V, two thousand and ten the. Legal correspondent for the Times reported that. President. Obama's lawyer argued to the United States. Supreme Court yesterday January the fourth, thousand and ten that US. Citizens do not have a constitutional right not to be frame. Ahead we need to. We need to just stop on that for a second. Because that's one of the many things that I dog eared the page and highlighted in your book. President. Obama's Solicitor General. Made this argument that US citizens do not have the constitutional right not to be framed. It's also been embedded in congressional, actually federal towards claims which also limits gives gives prosecutors free hand to. Present evidence to get a conviction or to get an indictment, they they now let me. Let me say two things one. Elena Kagan. Had Her deputy. Make the argument and it was a legal it is. It wasn't as illegal fact. You as citizens can be framed, but the fact of the matter is. The solicitor. General did not have to take that position she could have. She could have taken position and said. You know this is the law today. Because of a nineteen seventy six court decision, but we're asking you to change that decision today. This this involves two black man who spent twenty five years in prison for a crime. They didn't commit. They were suing for monetary damages now. Let me take you one step further into the legal minutia and I'll get out of it. This is I. But in a legal in a civil civil deposition, where monetary damages are. Lawyers from both sides having opportunity to act to evidence that the other side seeks to introduce. Or testimony and a judge decides whether or not it can be introduced well. That's where money is involved, but. Shouldn't we have that same legal protection? Where someone's life and liberty is at stake? Yeah, the yeah, so. That's one of the recommendations making my book, but if anybody needs proof. That! Our, democracy that our democracy is they don't believe that our democracy is being stolen. You know look at what's going on today here. You Have Donald Trump, calling in the military to go out and and. Gas protesters because he wants to have a photo or you know. Bill Bar has made so many decisions that underscore that the Department of Justice can be politicized or can be weaponized of. To a presidents will and we've simply got to..

"Right I'm not going to get into much of it because I want to get to Governor Siegelman, but let's start with this. Looting has broken out in Washington. DC again and this time. We knew it was going to happen treasury. Secretary Steven mnuchin is now flat out refusing to disclose the businesses that received five billion dollars in bailout funds through the paycheck protection program, claiming the information is confidential, four and a half million businesses received government funds, and normally the Small Business Administration Discloses the names of Borrowers from the program on which base the P. P P but statement to Mnuchin said his department considered that information, proprietary and confidential. Wow. And this, actually this has a little bit of bearing on some of what I'll be talking to the governor about the Republican led Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday authorized its chair Senator Lindsey Graham to subpoena former Obama administration officials about the origins of the intelligence communities investigation into Russian election meddling in a party line vote the panels Republican majority approved calling former director of National Intelligence James Clapper former CIA director John Brennan and the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded. In stunning study recently, which might be also one of the reasons why Richard Burr was pushed out the the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that Russia did try to interfere on the thousand sixteen election on trump's behalf. But, but but Lindsey. Graham wants to also look into foreign surveillance applications, and why former special counsel Robert Muller was appointed in the first place, so they're are issuing all these subpoenas of course if you remember back to the molar, investigation. All of the trump administration officials denied the subpoenas. So the Democrats of course are suggesting that they subpoena as well some current and former trump allies including former attorney general. Jeff sessions and trump's son-in-law and senior adviser. Jared Kushner. Also just heading down to Louisville Kentucky from the Metro Council there voted unanimously yesterday to ban the type of no knock search warrants that police were using when they fatally shot Brianna Taylor, of course, the unarmed black emergency medical technician in her apartment, while she lay sleeping in her bed on March thirteenth, her boyfriend fired I thinking the officers were intruders well the Mayor Greg Fischer who suspended the use of those no knock warrants. Last month said he'd signed Brianna 's law immediately, tweeting out the risk to residents and officers with this kind of search outweigh any benefit that's true, but I want to know why those three cops who shot and killed. Brianna Taylor are all still walking around. Two more quick items Donald Trump appeared last night or yesterday in Dallas Texas, and an event billed as a race roundtable that he was allegedly gonNA lead it was held at a conservative and predominantly White Church in Dallas at which trump praised the national guards use of tear gas and other forceful measures to disperse Minneapolis crowds who were protesting police brutality against African Americans. He described the effort to quell a protest as a quote beautiful seen. And described where the national guard walk through like a knife cutting butter. Now trump did not mention the name George Floyd, but he said that the work of confronting bigotry would go quickly, and it'll go very easily providing we, we avoid falsely labeling tens of millions of decent. Americans as racist or bigots. You gotta be kidding me, and by the Way Dallas Texas has a black police chief, a black sheriff and a black district attorney, and none of them were invited to participate in a round-table on race and policing held in Dallas Texas with the president of the United States. It is just unbelievable. And now we learned that the orange menace will accept his Republican nomination in Jacksonville Florida in August instead of in Charlotte North Carolina, as originally planned because Donald trump wants a big crowd. He wants a pack convention center with no masks by the way and north. Carolina's Democratic Governor, said Hell no the instances of Covid, nineteen or spiking. You're not doing this in my state, and so the Flora da man chief governor of Rhonda Racist I'm Santa's obviously cares more about appeasing trump than the health and safety of Florida's citizens, so now Republican delegates will elect their nominee from Charlotte, where most of the convention. Business will still happen, but trump will make his acceptance speech three states away and front of what he expects will be a packed arena filled with without masks. But this date also coincides with another horrible day. In history in Jacksonville. It's the sixtieth anniversary of the at of ax. Handle Saturday when a white mob organized by the clan attacked mostly black civil rights protestors who were sitting at Jacksonville's whites, only lunch counters. Can this administration be that tone deaf? And and you know this is not the first instance with the campaign trail long before that with his first stop scheduled in Tulsa Oklahoma the site of one of the worst acts of racist violence. This country has ever seen next Friday a week from today. That is June nineteenth June teen a day that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. Again. They knew what it meant and. Say. You know they knew they knew of the Tulsa history, they knew of the date but they didn't think the backlash would be so bad. Right. By the way. If you want tickets to that Tulsa rally, you can now get them. The campaign formally offered supporters the chance to register to attend, but they're requiring that anyone wishing to go. I agree not to sue the campaign or the venue. If they contract covid in nineteen, I kid you not the online sign up page, says anyone clicking to register for free tickets acknowledges that there.

"All Right? Hello and welcome to A. Friday. Oh I love it when we make it to the end of the week. I was GONNA. Say unscathed, but there's nothing unscathed about what we're all going through right now. All right well, it is Friday and today's the day. I have been looking forward to for quite some time because as you know over the last. Month or two I've spoken with former Alabama. Governor Don Siegelman on a few occasions I've also been reading his new book. The book is called stealing our democracy. How the political assassination of a governor threatens our nation and let me tell you it does indeed it does. I finally finished reading the book last night. And I it made me cry. Because what happened to a really good man should never have happened to anybody in this country it is. It is a travesty and even bigger travesty perhaps is that this story has not been screamed from the rooftops in every city around the nation now i. When this happened to Don Siegelman during that time I was doing talk radio here in south Florida then I moved to Air America where we covered this incredulously and as much as I remember most of the details most of what happened as this all went went by reading the. And reading a governor Siegelman a explanation of what happened. Just. Seeing all the behind the scenes maneuvering and what was done to this man is. Just reprehensible, it makes me so angry, and and so I, invited, the governor backed today to really go in depth into his story, because we've heard it in bits and pieces and bits and spurts, and the book lays it all out I want you to buy the book. It is officially released this coming Tuesday. It's available for preorder, and all those usual places but you must read this book and stick around. Because Governor Siegelman will join us in just a couple minutes We got a little bit of news to take care of and I want to play for you electric. Try to start each show with something, lighthearted and fun. something to give us perhaps a little laugh if that's possible in this day and age So and what I've been playing mostly over the last few months are a song parodies that that I found online mostly people dealing with the covid infection in a somewhat humorous way One is something different. It's an old friend Jill. So buell, who's been on this program many times, and is an old friend of mine from back in my music radio days in Los Angeles and she posted this video to her website last night. and and it just it works on water levels in especially works with what we're dealing with today, so we'll open the show officially with this new song from Jill, so buell and it's called owning the libs. You can guess where she's going with this one. Take it away Jill so buell. Here we go I, think no. No, it doesn't WANNA play. I'm owed no best laid plans, and all that you know what for some reason I'm not getting any audio out of there, which is really weird so I'm GonNa just. I'm going to have to play for you. The the audio version of the song because I can't tease you like that and then not play it for you so. Here, we go, Joe. You'll. Oh, no! Give me one more second oh best late. You knew I couldn't get through a show without a technical problem today right all right final final. Go here we go. You'll get it to the lives. Land. Called Kid. We're. Proudly given live.

Masan to acclimate to go to school online at the same time. You know trying to find out what happened behind the scenes reporting on it and it's just. Surreal you know, tell you the truth. It's It's nice to be in La I. IT feels a bit more stable here if you will. It's It's just. It's been hard and the. Speed, we've actually gone furloughs of awesome, really really really really amazing journalists as as a result of this because the economic downturn, right? I saw that you you. You wrote in a message to me last night that you're saying goodbye to all these friends now did they expect that these people will eventually come back or do you think those jobs are gone? it's unclear, but it also seems unlikely I mean doesn't be like anything getting better yet. You know economically which I'm sure you and I. Can you know consider in talk about this for some time? Which is unbelievable to me to to see what's playing out in real time where you have massive unemployment academy that tanking pandemic, you know. Up Protests over police brutality, the death of George is. It feels like there's her storm. and. It's remarkable to actually even through the back to pandemic just. Knowing that. There's more than a hundred thousand people who died. And the president has as. I'm not in comment about. No no, because he's more concerned with the stock market. Then with you know the lives that are being lost and now today he's announced that starting. I guess next week. He's going to pick up start. Start doing rallies again in places like Florida and Arizona two states, where the the the the the numbers of infections are on the rise again it's. The whole thing's seen. It is and it, and it does feel insane and it's exhausting by At, the work still needs to be done. The reporting still needs to be done, so it's it's. You know got got at this point after these you have to report these stories in my personal opinion for almost for historical purposes an reasons because they are completely trying to cover up what what took place behind the scenes. What's been happening with? The documents? Say I can tell you just on the on the. Coronavirus covid nineteen pandemic I already have like two or three freedom of Information Act lawsuits against the government against a wide range of agencies in the reason I. have that is because we don't know what happened really behind the same. We need to see those documents. We need to see what the CDC. You know how they communicated with the White House Task Force. There is a lack of transparency and and the public needs to. Know, what What's been taking place? We do, but when when they do talk to us, they lie, so it's like I can't you I? Don't believe anything that comes out of this administration. Jason do you. Know. Angry! I don't believe. and honestly you know I have questions for all administrations because I never. I, never just take the word for at too high right over here. You can't see it, but I have a poster. From I F stone. Who is a former? You know a late muckraking stone. It was based on the movie poster from a- from a documentary did, but it's. It's titled All Governments Y. And you know that that's my? That's the maximum if you will that that I live by, it's you know it's. It's why I ask for documents. I want to see what they're actually saying. Right and and it should be noted that I believe it was the Obama Administration who dubbed you the foia terrorist. What yeah so this has been going on for a while. I should also mention before we get into this current story that on Friday. Former Alabama, Governor Don Siegelman will be here for the better part of our. He has a new book out called Oh and I have it in the other room almost I've got like twenty pages left stealing our democracy, and although I knew about his case, he was targeted by Karl Rove and set up and prosecute. He was like the original political prisoner in this country and. And what was done to him is just reprehensible and as I'm reading this book. It's all coming back to me and even more, because I wasn't aware of a lot of you know the machinations that went on in the in the courtroom and stuff that Karl Rove and that Bush justice. Department did to this man who was the Democratic Governor of Alabama is just unbelievable and I bring that up..

"Is Governor Don SIEGELMAN AGAIN. The beginning hold on. I'm trying to bring it over. There are governor Siegelman. I've got his picture up on the screen for those of you who are watching on Youtube So that was the opening sequence of a film called Abacus versus the architect the political assassination of Don Siegelman and. I'm thrilled to welcome Governor Don Siegelman to the show Governor thank you so much for being here. Oh It's my pleasure. Thank you go you know. We spoke years ago. I think before you reported to prison was that in two thousand twelve yes in two thousand twelve either net bridge nation or the Democratic National Convention or online. I'm not sure yeah now. We spoke by phone. It was definitely a phone interview. I haven't I have not met you in person and I. Yeah I haven't been to any other yes it is well. Thank you so much for being here and as I've been telling the listeners you do have a book coming out. It's called stealing our democracy. How the political assassination of a governor threatens our nation. You're kind enough to send me an advance. Copy a couple of weeks ago that I'm just beginning to read. I know it's going to be released in June and I hope you'll come back on at that time when we can spend time talking about what happened to you really get into the nitty gritty. Because you're prosecution was an American tragedy and travesty and something that everybody should everybody should know about it and unfortunately they don't but it is relevant to what is going on today with Donald Trump limit. Living just give you this one brief comment about what's in the Book and Donald Trump's pictures on the back along with Jeff sessions in Colorado. Say A is because the the abuse of the abuse of power that that targeted me to silence me to get me out of the picture is something that is going on today. If you do not believe. The Department of Justice can be manipulated for political purposes. I would call Donald. Trump is my first witness a fire. James coming up against Sally Yates J Andrew. Mccabe right are hired and fired. Jeff sessions is southern white boy buddy from Alabama and then he hired bill bar does everything he can to manipulate justice to protect Donald Trump. So there's a reason he's all right and there are correlations. I mean for anyone just looking from the outside in. I would say this Justice Department as a lot scarier than the Bush Justice Department who went after you and had you in prison for five years well a and also you know they fired a number of Republican. Us ATTORNEYS WOULD NOT DO CALL. Rose political dirty work including David Iglesias and six others in the but the Department of Justice. We've got to stop the abuse of power that as we got to change our criminal justice system and that was the purpose of this boat is to To to show the public and to build support for changing the justice system. So it can protect those who are most vulnerable. Well good speaking of the and again. We will reconvene in June when the around the books released to to really get in depth into happened because again. This is a story that everybody in America should know with the in order to make sure it never happens again. This your story is not supposed to happen in America but it did right so when I was in prison. That was in prison of with a lot of young men of color and Unfortunately the prison algorithms work against those people in terms of the release early. Release that Bill Bar ordered on April authorities believe it was Of those who are considered non violent and not a threat to public safety. He asked that they be released. So they would reduce the possibility of the spread of corona virus. Well under this offer in under the Federal Bureau presents algorithms only silicon percent. Only seven percent of the african-american organs are going to be eligible for this early release because they view drug offenses as likely to be recidivist. And you know we've we've got to change that and these people need to be need to be lined up right. But that's not the case. So what what? What is the prison that you spent most of your your time in jail and prison him? Well I was in. I was in Oakdale Louisiana which the Wall Street Journal said was president under siege. The Washington Post said it was the epicenter or Ground Zero it was a a focus of NPR Because of the first six inmates that died in the United States five of them were were from oatmeal place where I spent five years. And there's a reason and most people are aware of this now but the prison conditions virtually all prisons in jails city and county jails throughout the country are overcrowded. But when you when you have. Inmates stacked up as were up the hill at one point I was in a room with twenty one people. We called it. The Submarine Submarine Room. Because they were the beds were stacked not just too high but three high Michael Ports. You got into your bunk. You couldn't sit up because there wasn't enough space. You could literally reach L. From alcohol and touch the other bunce. There was one door going into this room. And that was the only entrance and exit and there were no windows no circulation so any virus or any infection that anyone had could easily be passed on to the other end nights and when you have communal showers and communal soap and urinals that are just inches apart is I virtually impossible. I felt like I've got something to help you. Okay I think it's just from talking too much but the it's virtually impossible twos two separate properly and you know the the Attorney General's order that we should release. Nonviolent inmates who are not a threat to public safety raises the question. Why are they in their good question? Right there L. involved and not a threat to public safety. And what are they doing in prison in the first place so hopefully as we form new economies out of this crisis they were going through. Hopefully we'll also see changes in our criminal justice system. I hope so now. Let me ask you this governor. What before this happened to you before you found yourself in federal prison was the subject of prison overcrowding for profit prisons the prison industrial complex. Was that even on your radar. Was that an issue. Your concerned with I was opposed to private as I am now. I was able to get one one person off of death row because they had withheld exculpatory evidence but what? I was convicted of something. I'd do. It never happened. I just sent a shockwave through my body and I want to thank those involved in the innocence project and the equal justice initiative who have managed to get one hundred fifty people off of death row because they were proven to be Edison. So we've got a long way to go in changing our justice system and again the purpose of my book is not to promote the story about me but is called action so that we can change our justice system again to protect those who are most vulnerable right and obviously that's of paramount importance right now. We're seeing persecution of people who shouldn't be prosecuted. Your story is the perfect example. And then we see I mean just watching this administration in action hearing Donald Trump praising. Michael Flynn hearing knowing seeing him. Pardon People like Sheriff Are Pyo and I can't even remember some of the other people he's pardoned. I don't even want to think of it and think who might be pardoned in the future there. Has Roger Step well? He hasn't pardoned him yet but no doubt he will. Apparently Roger Stone found Jesus in prison or is waiting to go to prison. The thing that our justice system is truly flawed and definitely needs an overhaul l. Let me ask you this governor. Siegelman you were at the time. I think went. When did when were you? Run out of office was where it was a two thousand four. I was I was reelected in. Two Thousand and two election was stolen. And that's when I could give you some background. The Justice Department finally admitted actually was revealed through whistleblower in the In the House through the House Judiciary Committee in a sealed. See a letter. From the Department of Justice to then chairman John Conyers that the lead prosecutor in my case the lead prosecutor was emailing my Republican opponents campaign manager giving him updates on the investigation and yet the Department of Justice told John Conyers that my prosecution was not politically motivated ran. It was it was it was started by car rose client. It was advanced by car. Rose business for this wife who was bush-appointed. Us Attorney the money for my defeat was raised by Jack. Abramov twenty billion dollars. He admits this in his book. And also in the documentary. My election was stolen by Karl. Rove's client and the list goes on so the Both the the election big stolen that my prosecution or definitely political he liked it gets back to my point about Donald Trump. We've got to stop the abuse of power and it starts with changing our criminal. Justice system definitely definitely be very quickly for those who don't know the story. What was the charge that they accused you of? It was bribery right young at the time. That the that Jack Abramov was funneling. Twenty million dollars of Indian casino money into Alabama to defeat me and to defeat my papa education lottery proposal. It was a ballot initiative designed to give every child early learning and free college education grains and at the time that they were funneling in twenty million dollars illegally to defeat me. I was raising money to promote the passage of the constitutional amendment. I accepted a contribution from a fortune. Hundred five hundred Ceo and reappointed him to a board that he had been on for twelve years only about two Republicans and one governor before me come on. Democratic governor before the Fourth Governor to appoint him as God as my witness when I called and asked him if he would serve as my right hand did. If I'm like the what I asked him to serve on the board he said Oh governor. Do I have to? I'll have gone and that guy surf of years. Wow robbery and he didn't even want to be on the guy. They went after him too. So the point is I want to make another point here so I was. I was sent to prison on the basis of the campaign contribution to Education Lottery Foundation. There was no no evidence of quid pro quo much less than expressway but in my book also talk about the impeachment trial of Donald. Donald Trump In that trial we had express evidence of audiotapes of of the president swapping military aid for an investigation of Joe Bod Yup so but the Republican asserted decided that even that wasn't enough to Return on articles of impeachment. So we've got this dichotomy and you know. The law applies to some people in one way into others in another way gets back to the point of my book. We've got to change our criminal justice system without a doubt. But here's the question. I was going to get at. Did the Democratic Party. Come to your aid at all. Did they do anything to help you? As you were under siege from Karl Rove and the Republicans will let me. Let me let me let me say. Let me ask you this. In two ways some self selected members of the party Steny Hoyer And a number of other members of the House Judiciary Committee one of my champions was of course Jon condoms and but I want to quote from the Los Angeles Times of.

"M. well it's been a long time since we've talked to all but don Siegelman the former governor of Alabama who Karl rove in my opinion massively ill legally and morally and wrongly took down and just commit horrible crimes against the the Karl rove committed the crimes governor governor don Siegelman is online with this free dash don dot org is website is Twitter handle is don Siegelman governor welcome back Hey thank you tell him I'm glad to be back it's great to have you with us it's been a long time since we've talked I wanted to discuss with you the the data and there's a bunch of things I'd like to cover actually let's start with the death of Jeffrey abstain you as governor of Alabama oversaw prison systems you after call well got done with you were in a federal prison and I'm guessing you have more than a passing familiarity with suicide watches in prisons well I've I've volunteered for suicide watch while I was in Oakdale federal prison let me say this it is it is taken very seriously by wardens the the worst things that can happen in a prison is the murder of a man bye bye guard or a suicide because it reflects poorly all the work and the diminishes their chances of promotion so they do everything possible to prevent a suicide at Oakdale which is rose and then the swamps of Louisiana there there is any glass eight the last well all of small glance well what they raise the mana platform with a mattress on that and she there is no overhead structure which could be used by the end date to hang himself there is no way for the NBA to hurt themselves without being observed for particular reasons one their guards watching twenty four hours a day three ships never never guards coming at every eight hours doing the the suicide cell in addition to that there are invited to serve as volunteers and outside of the glass structure now yet Oakdale I will choose reduce spending and suicide watch for a African American who was yeah I don't know whether it was a drug dealer or what you know what the situation was but let me say they take it very seriously if you say you are depressed they will put you in suicide watch so it it just stands to reason that if if the service them more go to this much effort to prevent a suicide but a and northern invite they would certainly do everything humanly possible regret Jeffrey abstain from committing suicide particularly that that he was just depressed it was reported that he tried to kill himself three weeks ago they're all gonna they're not going to ever take your eyes off from that man right but they did band and was apparently I mean the the day that he was arrested the FBI raided his home in New York City the largest private residence in the city which is pretty amazing and they the news reports were that they had found all kinds of photos and video tapes and and even old you know movies back in the days when I was you know eight millimeter movies on movies apparently of not just abstain having sex with us some of these young women but also some of his rich and powerful friends I'm assuming that those are now in the possession of the department of justice which is bill bars department which also ran the prison where I'm staying killed himself and then yesterday they raided his island now why did they wait until yesterday to rid the island the private island looking for more of this stuff and what do you think I mean I I I it amazes sounds paranoid but I remember I'm old enough to remember if J. Edgar Hoover who used to get this kind of information on people they would you know be a pictures of John Kennedy having sex with somebody or sneaking into someplace I mean he had dirt on probably half the politicians in the United States and even prosecute the money didn't link it to the press he used it to make sure that nobody ever challenged as power am I am I going off in some weird paranoid direction here government governor I don't think you could possibly go often in it in a weird direction when it comes to the question though Jeffrey abstains I was very alleged suicide it is and this is just my opinion doc he committed suicide it had to have been done with the complicity of show more on in the present system they decided that they were going to take their eyes off of him it is not protocol and put him in a cell that's got some kind of overhead structure from which you could hang himself well it is if it's just totally an anathema to what the the policy and rules of the department of justice and the federal bureau of prisons required to someone who has understood who has attempted to kill take your own life so so there is a break down it's hard to believe imagine or fathom that something like this would happen by accident but I've never had all but you're paranoid that think that any you know if you're going to preserve evidence you do at the moment that you you make the arrest that the judges already geared up yes he has yeah he's authorized the search and the seizure of dot any and all documents any can shape form or fashion all of that stuff should have been seized yeah at the time of his at the time this is a rush yeah I mean this this thing and with is from private island is is starting to look to me like a clean up operation but again I I I don't know what we know where we leave reality I mean I I eat you when bill Barr came out and lied to the American people repeatedly about what was in the mall report and we all took him seriously I'm out I remember the day after he he first told us lies about what was in the mall or port I came on the air and said well you know I guess we all been hold our breath for your for nothing you know this is a real bummer and it turned out the bill by was simply lying to us and and you know so I think that's one of the reasons why so many of us are willing to believe the possibility that there's more to this than we think but anyway with the with the it world will bill stop going down that rabbit hole I'm I'm curious I want to bulldoze bill Barr string just a little better if you don't mind unravel something that's going to relate back to if you can believe it to one the suffrage but there bill Barr was appointed to replace Jeffrey bow regards sessions as an assembler now about I'm a white boy if you'll excuse the expression right Sam what I do and someone if done battle with from the time I was secretary of state nineteen seventy that throughout my political career someone who was contemplating running against may in two thousand and six and F. B. I. X. FBI agents retired FBI agents were the ones who built the case against me but that's that's another story but if you look at hello bill bart look at health Billboard ended up where it was already James Comey eight fired Andrew McKinney they fired Sally Yates any hard Jeffries abordar sessions fire Jeffrey sessions Jeff sessions and then hired bill Barr if I were going to make your case that the department of justice can be used for political purposes I would put Donald Trump on the stand is my first witness second the second person I would put on the stand would be called because then I would fall in his involvement in my case at the the one of the woman who reporter the cover off of call rose involvement with the department of justice to mac as was dated you're all Sampson what about local heroes because I didn't know were never it better all she was a Republican lawyer she was involved in Republican politics you as high up in the Republican establishment in Alabama she was in law school with the governors of Republican governors sudden and yet she came forward pointing the finger at call row saying she was on the telephone call with daily Canary the husband of my prosecutor one bill it can very said that he had spoken to call and the department of justice was already pursuing may and besides that his wife and another US attorney we're going to take care of me he was also a champagne manager of your opponent in the election was enough yeah yeah it was okay hello I governor we just have a minute and a half before we're gonna have a heart breaker well the let me make a pit your credentials option she has suffered a lot because of what coming forward the Republicans have cut ties with her law practice is gone into the tank she now has cancer and she has a go fund me page is just dying to jail Simpson and I would encourage those who want to support of fine woman do was a whistleblower and took a lot of heat for being a Republican who came forward and back a smirk you go find your own go and may yet and help her out if you can I will do that today I will make a contribution so in the in the minute we have left what what's your prescription for clean all this up governor sigma elected president who who understands that that and I would be my message to Democrats that and we can follow up on this after the after the verdict but Democrats need to stop talking about Donald Trump and start talking about the issues that are important to the working families of this country they don't go to sleep at night working families don't go to sleep at night worrying about Donald Trump they go to sleep at night worrying about your children their future and their parents going to afford a place to live their drugs in their food so we need a president in two thousand and twenty you will speak to the American people who speaks to the working people so.
