The Most Important Court Case of 2023 With James Lawrence
"Now is James Lawrence, who's an attorney for the Mackey legal defense fund. You may or may not remember, we talked about this a couple of weeks ago, and now it's going to trial. It's actually went through jury selection. I would go into trial. Of the case of Douglas Mackey. Where they're trying to put a young man in prison who made Internet memes and jokes about the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, and they're trying to lock him up and throw the key away. James joins us now. James welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks so much for having me again. Good to be with you. So James, give us the update. What is the status of the trial or the jury selection, fill us in? Yeah, so I believe we're in day three of jury selection and mister Mackey's case. But since we last talked, there are two developments that I would like to make your audience aware of with respect to the case. The first involved the government's plan to introduce evidence from a confidential witness and to just give your audience context around that request. The Sixth Amendment guarantees the rights of Americans to be able to confront their accusers and open the court. It's something that goes to the core of the constitution as a native of Raleigh, north Carolina. I can tell you this is something that sir Walter Raleigh was complaining about from his prison cell and the Tower of London in the 1600s. I mean, this is how bad rock this is to our country. And in this particular case, the government plans to introduce testimony from a confidential witness whose name will be withheld from the public and the court has not only granted the government's request to keep that person anonymous, but also to prevent mister Mackey's trial team from engaging in a fullsome cross examination of the witness with respect to that individual's connections with the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the briefing, mister Mackey's defense team has learned that the confidential witness has a relationship with the FBI and back has pled guilty to the very same offense that mister Mackey is accused of and is continuing to work with the government, but

"Asian equities are higher so the rally is intact, the hanging index has just opened its jump more than 4% tech index is up 5.2%. But hopium is a very strong made up drug and a lot of investors were hoping that central banks were getting close to a pivot. This morning we saw the reserve bank of New Zealand put paid to that to a certain degree in that not only did it raise interest rates by half a percentage point for a 5th consecutive time, but there was no soothing language here either. The rbn zed said consumer price inflation is too high. Labor resources are scarce. Global price pressures are still heightened, food and energy prices are still pressured by the war in Ukraine. And the bank of Korea's deputy governor said that South Korea's inflation levels are expected to maintain a 5 to 6% gain for a considerable period of time. So some of that hopium that I mentioned had been down to the move by the RBA yesterday, while when thin head of currency strategy at Brown brothers harriman said, the dovish surprise from the RBA is a wag the dog moment. He said the fed is nowhere near pivoting, and neither is the ECB nor the Bank of England. So there we have it, the Bloomberg dollar spot index is now up a tenth of a percent. It had dropped a full percentage point yield on the tenure 3.62%. And that's a check of markets. Headline news with duck prisoner in New York Brian tomorrow in Vienna, OPEC plus will meet and the cartel is considering its biggest production cuts into about 2020 as it tries to stabilize oil prices. We are told these cuts could be as much as 2 million barrels a day, and today RBC capital markets was saying Saudi Arabia may announce an extra voluntary cut in its production. In Ukraine, the military there is a counter striking against the Russian army and that seems to be gathering momentum, The New York Times says a brigade of Ukrainian marines appears to have expelled Russian forces from a town in southern Ukraine. Iranian forces bombarded uppers opposition bases in the semi autonomous Kurdistan region of Iraq, Tehran is blaming Kurdish groups for fomenting some of the protest in Iran for the last three weeks or so. Former president Trump is seeking the intervention on the part of the U.S. Supreme Court in the fight over government papers seized at his Mar-a-Lago home now, Trump is asking the justices to block the FBI from using 100 documents with classified markings in an ongoing criminal investigation. Well, now the Supreme Court wants a response from the DoJ by next Tuesday, and a jury has been seated in the trial of three men charged in connection with a 2020 anti government plot to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, opening statements in that trial are scheduled for tomorrow. That's a quick look at global news headlines, Juliet. Thanks, Doug. Let's get now to James McIntyre, Bloomberg, economist to talk about the Abbey ended decision James joining us from Wellington today, so we did say a 5th straight 50 basis point hike. That was not the biggest 75 basis point move that had been sort of floated as well. Is this it now from jump for jumbo hikes from the Abbey and sit. Thanks, Juliette. What we think so, but there was a surprise reveal today from the RB engine that they did consider that 75 basis point move. But they did acknowledge that the pass through of some of their right hikes thus far had is still coming along. Consumers are still going to be bearing the weight of the moves that the RB engine, this is their 5th 50 basis point move in a row that the impacts of those are still getting passed through to borrowing costs given how mortgage rates reset through the New Zealand economy. So in our view, we think that their next hike is probably going to be more like the RBA's and a shift to a smaller 25 basis point increment. But that's not the language that they are being said and also the acknowledgment that they gave of what their committee's decision making process was like today without opted for that 50 basis point move and said that they think that it's appropriate to continue to move at pace. You've got this inflation read though of 7.3% so very much too high as the Abbey and Z have said themselves labor resources also pretty scarce and you can probably thank the COVID zero policies for that in terms of not getting some of those migrant workers through. How a households reacting though to these 5 rate hikes that probably haven't even properly fed through to the real economy yet. Well, the biggest reaction so far from households is what's going on within the housing market. You've seen a very, very sharp fall away in turnover. And health prices have also declined within that property market. So that's going to be something that will weigh on the economic aggregates that passes through, but more so on consumer sentiment and that consumer spending dynamic once the economy digests the reopening of international borders. Tourism is a huge demand within the retail and hospitality sector for New Zealand's economy. So that's getting a boost from the border reopening. But once that boost fades and we enter 2023, things are a bit more normal. We begin to get those falling house prices and weak sentiment weighing on spending there. That's going to be sort of some of the challenge that the audience's own forecast see that big slump ahead for consumer spending in 2023. Let's talk about the RBA you correctly called that it would be 25 basis point hike well done. It did surprise markets though because many were expecting 50 basis points and as we heard earlier Brown brothers harriman calling this a wag the dog moment saying the fed is nowhere near pivoting and neither is the ECB or the BOE, but in terms of the RBA reaction, what are we expecting to hear again from Phil Lowe and is that the end there of big moves for rate hikes in Australia? Well, we think that's the end for big moves that they're going to have a couple of more 25 basis points higher from here. But one way to sort of think about what's going on with across these three economies is to think of that Goldilocks and the three bears. The parts that's hot, medium, hot cold and just right. Well, there's a spectrum here of wage growth across the U.S. economy. The kiwi economy and the Aussie economy. U.S. wages are hot. That's giving the U.S. a sustainable and durable inflation pressure that the fed is going to have to move further and further to work against. There's a little bit of that extra pressure, probably medium wage pressure. I would say it's out of the three for the IBM Z. But in Australia, that wage growth isn't there despite the tight labor market. Migration is coming back a lot quicker into Australia. There's some fees that it's not going to come for New Zealand. But as we see those European economy go through a very cold

"Sabrina DuPont and can you talk a little bit about the way that her dad's estate kind of changed from being overseen by this family office earlier in his life but then toward the end of his life he didn't have that same infrastructure Yeah So I can't seek too much to it But what I can say is that she basically talks about him kind of scaling back his business activities And as a result he had less of a need for a very kind of large office and managed its affairs So they had family advisers still including a family lawyer and a family accountant but not people who were kind of permanently on the payroll And so he was a person her father was a person who bought and sold and traded antiques as a hobby constantly And he collected one of the preeminent collections that chippendale furniture and then sold it all in the 90s when he sold most of it in the 90s When he became interested by something else And she told me that he had a very fluid idea of collecting which is that it didn't just want to buy it and hold it He was always on the lookout for something better than what he had And what he found that he wouldn't keep the old thing He would sell it he would move on And so that is he was a man of substantial means And that was totally possible but it meant that when he died because he didn't have this family office infrastructure in place anymore It meant that she was in charge of dealing with this pretty vast amount of objects that she told me that there were at least 1500 maybe more He had a gentleman's farm in Delaware And it was a monumental undertaking because she was basically she told me doing it on her own And this again once again gets back to this idea that this has resonance for a broader audience because it really about trying to make sure that there is some level of not only documentation but accounting of objects And frankly I don't think I know a single person who has inventory lists of their belongings It's just not how most people I know even people who have lots of stuff or lots of questionable artworks really worked And I think that it can be a way to call when you actually hear about this We'll change It's not just kind of you know you don't want to make that call again in touch with a lawyer but you'd also people I don't think want to think about mortality right And how things how things go at the end James this was a really fantastic deep dive into a story I had no idea about We really appreciate you taking the time And giving us all the details on it James Tommy is arts columnist for Bloomberg businessweek You gotta check this story out It's available online and on the Bloomberg terminal as well James joining us on the phone from New York City Let's get now to Charlie pellet who's standing by to give us an update on all the after hours market action Hey Charlie Well hello there down day on Wall Street losing week as well and should mention that we are awaiting remarks from President Biden We will have those for you live coming up right here on Bloomberg radio For the week the S&P 500 Index dropped one down at 1.6%.

At the party continued offstage, often in drug fuelled parties that became orgies in some cases. And these parties while they morphed into a 6 to $8000 a week cocaine Abbott for James in 1993. He was convicted of assaulting a couple of women and served a few years in Folsom Prison. And that was pretty much the end of his career as a superstar Rick James died in 2000 and four at the age of 56 of a drug overdose. Director Sasha Jenkins worked closely with Rick James daughter Tie James to tell her Dad's story in a new documentary. It's called Bitch in the Sound and Fury of Rick James. And Welcome to the program. Sasha. Thanks for having me Well, let's go back to his origins. He had a pretty tumultuous childhood. Can you tell us a little bit about that? Yeah, he grew up in Buffalo, largely single mom. You know he had, you know step fathers and men in his life. But he didn't have a consistent father figure in his life, and his mother often did what she had to do to make ends meet, and one of those things she did was run numbers and in the Black community. That means sort of a Primitive form of lottery, So at a very young age, he was exposed to nightclubs, for instance, he would accompany his mom on her. Number runs, as they say, and, um, interestingly enough not to see all kinds of musical acts and See lots of things that were pretty sophisticated for a young kid. Right, and he got involved in drugs to later on. And there was some story of sexual abuse, too, and he's pretty young. And later you have some archival footage of him talking about his childhood. And he admits that he was an abused child. My mother was a very strong disciplinarian. We got a lot of what they call with weapons records of what they call now. Child abuse. So I guess you might say in a kind of way. I was abused child. Um But I had a lot of love in my family. Yeah, I think it's really important when you hear from him about his life, and you learn early on that he was both sexually and physically abused. You know that might have a window into some of the mistakes that he made later in life. So Rick James joins the Navy. He's really young, and it's basically to avoid being drafted and sent to war. But then he skips a few meetings and finds out that he actually would be sent to the front lines to Vietnam. So he goes AWOL and flees to Canada, and that's where his music career really begins. And Let's talk about that. There's a there's a really Fruitful meeting fortuitous meeting with some musicians in a bar, and here's a clip of Rick James talking about it. What happened was so white boy started fight with me. Here.

I mean, and I understand the concept of detrimental reliance. We have a lawyer in our family by the same token from a woman's perspective, Just quite frankly, I had texted you and told you I was sexually assaulted in my early twenties, and it took me about 10 years to come forward and have the courage to Report the incident and having a daughter allowed me to have that courage and step forward so no laughing. I was appalled at what transpired understand that aspect on the legal side. Probably better than some folks out there, but just I would encourage all women still not to be held back in reporting, regardless of the time frame when something might have happened until the you have the courage to report an incident when laughing, though, Yeah, and I agree with you on that it when when you It's not just Cosby. This is a story that has plagued our country in the world for a long time. Women being sexually assaulted when you when you are reminded of your story with these kinds of cases, these high profile cases I imagine that that brings back trauma and stress and tension into your life that probably you at some point tried to move past. If you can ever move past it. Well, not trauma First day, but memories and that's why even text to do it, you know, and my heart's racing while we're talking on the phone here, but in some way, if if The message can come out to a greater degree to again encourage women no matter what the circumstance to come forward because it sends a message to the perpetrator. That we're not going to stand forward anymore. But coming through an incident of that nature can help you be stronger and then coming forward as a result can also help strengthen the cause. Do you think that this decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will impact and all you're saying you You hope women still come forward? Well, do you think ultimately this could have a negative impact on women coming forward. I would think it might It could certainly for some women and for some others it hopefully it helps them become even more determined that no matter what next time that we will prevail. Let me let me ask you this before I let you go. You've you've come through this storyline of being sexually assaulted. What would you say to women out there who have Gone through this and maybe you're thinking about The next step, whether to reach out to authorities or to talk about it. What would you say to those women? Come out, come forward, And if you If you talk to the authorities are trusted individual and that's the pathway to sequence the authorities even if it's been 10 years, and in certain circumstances might be past the statute of limitations. Having that message come out, You'll feel better, but others may come out as well. And then there's an aggregate story related to a particular individual who Needs to be put on notice no matter what the time frame in order to help stop that from coming forward. Wendy, I want to thank you for texting me and thank you for being brave enough to talk about it. I really, really appreciate that. Thank you. Thanks, Steve. That's one person's account.

"Download. Duck duck. Go privacy, simplified. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. Not so long ago, there was another economic downturn that hit young people, especially hard in the great recession. It was hard to find a job. Any job if you were just starting out your career in particular. That's the setting for Elizabeth Gonzalez James debut novel called Mona at Sea. Nothing is going right in Mona Morella's life. It's 2000 and eight. The Recession has taken Mona's job away from her before she can even start her parents' marriage is on the rocks. And she spends most of her days trying her best to avoid other people. It's the story of how an overachieving millennial loses her footing and struggles to get her life back on track, which let's face it passed some residents today. Elizabeth Gonzalez James joins me now. Hello? Hello. Thank you for having me. It is a pleasure to have you. You started writing this book back in 2011. What inspired it? It was inspired by my own experience of long term unemployment. I went back to school in 2000 and seven to get an M B. A. And I graduated in 2008 and I applied to between 304 100 jobs and I didn't get anything. It was awful. And my husband was lucky enough. Fortunately to get a job, and then we decided to start a family, so I actually started writing as a way to kind of not lose my mind. And the story was absolutely inspired by my own experience of unemployment. I was just really angry, and I had a lot to say about it. I mean, let's talk about Mona. She is, uh, an overachiever. The way that she is described in the book is as someone who has done everything right? You know, she's angry like you were. Yeah, absolutely. And I was a straight a student, you know, like Mona and, um I still was unable to get a job and it's really frustrating because I think that My generation millennials. I'm an elder millennial. Or as I've recently learned a geriatric millennial. My generation was told, you know, Stay off drugs. Stay in school. Your payday will come. Yeah. Your payday will come exactly. And then there just wasn't anything waiting for me. I don't want to sound entitled or any of the other. Negative things that get applied to the millennial generation. If that doesn't take away from the frustration of of living through that experience, and I think that's really common. Thing that a lot of people are facing now. Yeah, I mean, millennials are the biggest generation and what I think the book captures really well through sort of the some of the absurdities that Mona faces is this idea that at the same time And you touch on it there. There's this dual narrative about your generation that kind, the kind of coexist and as encapsulated by Mona's experience. Exactly. I mean, when you're facing when you're facing the economic circumstances that my generation has faced, which you know we lived through. The the dot com bubble burst the collapse of Enron, the great recession and and now, whatever is going to come next, after, uh, Covid. It's like, well, when were we supposed to build equity? Well, when were we supposed to be able to save up to buy a house? Um, it's just it's disingenuous to apply the same economic principles that were at work for previous generations to my generation. And or two generations that come forward because life just isn't the same. One of the other things in this book is Mon as mixed race identity like your own. It's woven throughout her journey. Would you mind reading about some of that? To us? It is the part where she talks about the difference between her and her brother, Danny. Sure. As Danny likes to point out when I declined picante sauce or come back from the beach with sunburned shoulders. Our parents had one Mexican kid him and one white kid. Me looking at a family photo. It would seem my father and mother independently butted us like Hydra. Danny growing from a lump on our father's neck and me from our mothers, his gentle teasing as well intentioned but underscores the truth that my skin tells a different story than my last name. A contradiction I wear into every job interview and family reunion. This is also based on your own experience of being half Mexican. You also converted to Judaism. And you wrote about finding a secret history of your own In the journey of sort of discovering of your connection to that religion? Yes, Absolutely. So in Researching my second book, which is based on my father's side of the family, the Mexican side of the family. I did a deep dive into my family's ancestry, and I found out that they were actually Spanish Jews. They were Spanish Jews who fled Spain during the Inquisition and Went to Mexico, where they actually faced a second inquisition, and they practiced Catholicism in public. But in secret they were still I believe practicing Judaism. It's fascinating. I mean, that's a You know, a sort of unknown chapter of Latino history. Uh, I guess you know, knowing that about you and reading this book. What struck me is that America is a place that likes to pigeonhole you. Um, and it's hard to to have a mixed Sort of identity. What was your experience with that? Growing up? I mean, has it been difficult to navigate? All right. When I was growing up on the border, I had blue eyes and so Kids at school and stuff would call me white. But then, as I've traveled and lived in different places with the last name, Gonzalez, people will tell me you're Mexican. So which one is it? You know? And it's taken me a long time to be able to stake out my own identity and say I'm Latina. I look white, but This is who I know I am. This is what's inside of me. And it's my right to be able to claim that it's definitely something I still struggle with. I still feel like Do I have the right to write Mexican characters? Is it an authentic story coming for me? This is your first novel, and it speaks very much to your experience and how you have gone through the world as a millennial and the things that you've had to endure and face. I'm wondering what you think the impact of that will be. Do you think it will change the narrative around? You know your generation? I certainly hope so. I count myself really lucky that I was the absolute last class to graduate from college before YouTube and before cell phone cameras became ubiquitous. In the book, You know, I talked about Mona's worst moment in her life going viral. That's something that it's so difficult. I think for people to have empathy for the subjects of these Viral videos and to have empathy for a generation. The very first generation in the history of the world where your every move your every thought. Everything is recorded and catalogued and preserved. Forever, You know, So cut us some slack, man. I think we should leave it there. Those are good last words, okay? Elizabeth Gonzalez. James. Her new book is Moda at C. Thank you very much. Thank you so much..

I've wrapped listening. Yes, for years. I've called in a few times. You never let me down. So I'm hoping you help me now. There's a first time for everything. James. That's what women like you do. Yeah. Sounds like we're due to let you down. All right. What's that? All right, Well, let's do you think it can explain this right? I've got my kitchen and utility room are side by side. So my kitchen think and my washer are back to back with a wall separating them so they share drainage pipe. Here lately. Whenever the washer spins out, it's backing up into the kitchen sink. I know there's no clogged because that snake this thing about six or seven times and there's nothing down in there. The clock holds the house, James Who probably about 56 years, so it used to be that washing machines would not pump out quickly. They had roughly Half horsepower motor, and they would pump it out. Maybe three gallons a minute, sometimes four gallons a minute. The new washing machines that started about 30 years ago upgraded to three quarter and one horsepower in some cases, 1.5 Horsepower motors that can pump 10 to 20 gallons a minute and so we designed our plumbing with a wash capacity of 60% to be inch and a half in diameter. With these new washing machines, they can't handle it. There's only way haven't upgraded the washing machine lately. And this is the new newer problem. Is that washing machine? Uh younger that it Zaleski 20 years old, right? Oh, yeah, It's not you. It's Z just that the piping can't handle it. Now you can increase it to two inch on the drain line all the way to the three inch Or you can run a separate drain line for the for the laundry, but it will continue. And even though you think it's cleaned out, there is still some obstruction on the inside walls that you can't get when you snake it out, and that just slows it down. It's called friction loss. James. It's nothing you're doing. It's just it's undersized piping. And so instead of you know, the only thing you can do is upsides the piping and I would not do that. I put up with it as long as you can. Okay, okay. All right. Why? Thank you for the insight. Thanks. Change. All right, James. Thanks for the call. We appreciate it are number 239 93 93 Denny, the boat. If this is a new problem, it's that I missed that part of you. It's a new problem for him that you can think that you snake it all out Pat. But unless you actually go down there with a, um, a bio, clean type product that eats away the stuff on the inside walls. It really does slow it down. And what happens is it just backs up? So even though the line is basically open, it slows it down over time, right? So the point is that he still even though he doesn't think he has a clog he has something there. That has changed because the washing unless he had had a brand new washing machine, and he said he hadn't Yeah, you know, I wish they made statins for for plumbing lines. They don't but it's Afro sclerosis. It's just a build up of plaque and junk on the inside walls. All right. Hey, we got it after we get another call. We got mark here. Mark.
