"Burrow with us from Minneapolis Ryan don't go far but we are joined now by Lee Merritt co counsel for the Floyd family Mister Merrett this is what you wanted right all four officers charged and children's charge upgraded what the step in the right direction we we were hoping for a murder one charge but we understand that we we we trust fifty Ellis if you want to move forward with the charges but he believes that are reflected and and the other so it is definitely a step in the right direction what's next then I imagine it's not going to have to to let up the pressure on police reform that's right well and I'm I'm glad to hear police reform because it's about the case obviously and we're going to ensure that the system works and to see the man actually convicted but the family has been speaking with lawmakers on a higher level now to discuss ways that we can stop this kind of thing from happening it's you know it it blows the family way boulder office the way that it also looked into the camera the entire time you committing this murder all the other officers stood around because they were confident that the law would protect the laws have to change have you learned anything about officer Sheldon and the others do you have any idea how they could wind up doing this to George Floyd you know we've we've learned some things obviously about doctor shopping in his long history of brutality several complaints I think we count thirteen complaint that went out against them to this point I believe there are some rookies in his unit or and unit that was responding but they participated we'll get back to the merit the of the the attorney for George Floyd's family we are also joined here tonight by Melissa Murray from NYU law school Melissa you have now seen these charges it gets upgraded against the the primary officer involved but the the other three officers being charged shows you don't have to be the one with your knee on the guy's neck yeah back to back Lee right and in fact opera complex liability in most states that it's not simply that you don't have to be the one with your knee on the victim's knack that you can actually they'll be held liable for lifting charge as the person who gets out there in that case the aiding and abetting an accomplice charge by it for a charge of second degree murder and so it's actually quite interesting the upgrade today admits it's likely for lots of different reasons the upgraded Mr Tarvin charges about possibly because of the political pressure at the right track possibly because new evidence has emerged that we did not know of a couple of days ago when he was first charged but more likely tactical question because in order to be able to charge the other officer asked accomplishment you actually have to have a murder charge that require specific intent and third degree murder like not expired back look fired intact and so the great effective degree murder it's likely required a tactical measure to ensure that the three other officers are also held accountable for their conduct is there any concern that that murder too was going to be hard to prove because charging is one thing as every lawyer knows but conviction is another I think it's a good question and I think he outlook than what certainly white shoes back expectations I was living in Oakland in two thousand nine when the Oscar grant shooting took place and Johannes motherly he left the bar topic thirty shot after grant right charged with second degree murder at while at the lecture included homicide like large involuntary manslaughter and he was ultimately convicted not murder to involuntary manslaughter so a lot will depend on what kind of evidence can be produced and what the jury actually with how it received by accident and whether it believes that under the circumstances a conviction under murder to its market in the case thanks to Melissa Marie from NYU law and Lee Merritt the family attorney for for George Floyd let me ask you just one more if I could is this what was needed today is this the justice that the family has been seeking no no this is just the start and so this is this is far too soon to call the game and and and American culture is very difficult to become a police officer in a court of law and so the family has a lot more a lot more fighting to do B. B. appreciated very much Lee Merritt is a co counsel for George Floyd's family and along with all of us will be watching what transpires as these officers make their initial court appearances protesters are going to be watching too today though I want to move to Washington because there are protesters in the streets in the nation's capital again.

"NYC and PRX in collaboration with WGBH radio in Boston welcome back to the take away I'm Lizzie o'leary this week Mississippi joined the growing number of states beginning to reopen their economies on Monday governor Tate Reeves safer at home order went into effect replacing the state's stricter shelter in place order while retail stores are now able to reopen as long as they maintain half capacity the order is still urges residents to stay at home except for essential travel in Jackson Mississippi Mashal qua Antar Lumumba is handling the logistics of re opening his city last week he also use the emergency powers granted to him during the pandemic to suspended the open carry of firearms in Jackson until April thirtieth as we continue with our series of conversations with local leaders about this moment Marilyn member joins us Mister Merrett thanks so much for being here thank you for having me Jackson is both the capital and the densest city in Mississippi where are you do you think in controlling the spread of the virus there and what other precautions do you think you need to ensure the safety of your constituents right now well we're still in the eye of the storm here in Jackson just like most of the nation as the governor has issued his safer at home water it is my intent to continue my stay at home water you know not only is Jackson the most dense population in the capital of the state of Mississippi we are also the capital of healthcare so the decisions that are made statewide not only impact the city of Jackson or other decisions we make not only impact the city of Jackson it impacts the surrounding cities and communities and so right now we feel that that this order which allows businesses to go to fifty percent occupancy under the governor's order just is not sufficient and so we will maintain our order in the governor's water services only a minimal standard and mayors of cities have the ability to provide more restrictive policy so what you say supersedes what he says at this moment in terms of providing a more strict policy it cannot be indirect contact contradiction so I cannot open up businesses that he has seen necessary to close in nor would I want to but but we will continue to see restaurants and bars close in in Jackson retail establishments I will be closed but for those that can provide curbside service are you talking to the governor right now one and has he consulted you at all before making these decisions up in in in recent days we have we have spoken he invited me to the governor's mansion for a conversation with about a hundred mayors around the state through much of this process I have desired a more frequent communication you know not because I I think that I'm a special mayor out of the bunch but because the challenges are so are particularly significant for the city of Jackson not only due to our size but due to the fact that the majority of our population is is a population that has been disproportionately affected by this virus Jackson is a eighty five percent African American community in in the more that we can work in conjunction with the state to use state resources to use data that the state health department is extracting is beneficial for us to have a a better point of contact approach to the efforts here on the ground you know we know from demographics that more people of color in Mississippi have been infected and killed by the virus than white residents how are you trying to address and mitigate that disparity well I think that first we have to recognize why that disparity exist much of our response this cold it nineteen pandemic has mirrored our health care system we know on an average day in in this country there is great disparities between the access of healthcare for people in in black and brown communities and so this pandemic is is no different so you we saw it being necessary to take a proactive approach as a city so we purchased through the combination of direct purchase and in agreement with the local health care facility twelve thousand tax to be utilized throughout the city but for us we believe that testing while it is important and necessary it must lead to action and so we've also purchased what we call a symptom collector that allows people to log their symptoms it allows our our partnership with the health care facilities to do a heat map so that we can identify which areas around our city R. is this virus most prevalent in having a disproportionate effect in there we can direct resources direct health care and and also through text message alerts through other forms of of out reach out and knowledge to people how serious the pandemic he is and and how it is affecting them specifically right there in their neighborhood I we've also purchased what we found also entered into agreement with a local hotel you know an agreement which provides convalescence motive who may not have the opportunity to either quarantine because they lack shelter or a shelter that they do have would put other people in their family in significant danger we also you know attempted to create a hotline for those people to call to be connected to personal health care physicians and we've created a warm line which is dedicated to those who are having mental effects at this time what feeling anxiety over wound or depression and that that line has been has been utilized quite extensively in the last few days we've also seen protests around the country demanding that you know different states reopened and on Sunday you announced the suspension of open carry of firearms in Jackson until April thirtieth what do you make that decision well you know we have a significant challenge in the city of Jackson as it pertains to illegal fire arms and while I am not opposed to the second amendment a right to bear arms being a proud gun owner myself what I do have objections to is the fact that we have limited the tools of law enforcement to determine good from bad legal from illegal firearms when we already know that economic pressure is high emotional tension is high you know we create an environment which further creates fear in an anxiety and and trouble I think that we have to research the data dive in deep in and be prepared to take whatever steps are necessary to protect life of of of people mashup grand Harlem Mumba is the mayor.

"I'm Jack Russell of this is anything is possible and we have two guests tonight David Merrick and somehow so we're gonna start with Mister Merrett David let's talk about your childhood and your mom and your dad sure I was born in Detroit I won't say the year don't say how old right now I was born in nineteen eighty six in Detroit and my parents we moved to the suburbs and I was like five or six but my parents started straight gay international church in Detroit back in nineteen seventy eight so that was big for us I mean growing up I thought everyone had parents that had churches in you know just really normal and everybody had a dad who was a bishop yeah everyone had that and so yeah my childhood was amazing of grew up in so blessed to have two parents that taught about god in and how to serve people and just amazing family brother and sisters grew up in west Bloomfield went west Milford high school me my brother both played basketball that was our first love when we were born our our family had season tickets to see the bad boys in god Arbon hills and watch them on a weekly basis so that's how we fell in love with the game and we both continued to play through middle school high school and was fortunate to be able to walk onto the in the university Michigan basketball team when I got to college and yeah but in large part I was able to do that because of the strong foundation I received at home from both my parents what's the biggest thing you learned from mom and what's the biggest thing you learned from the mom is extremely not say my my dad is a compassionate but my mom my dad always says her gift is grace and so she just really cares about people one cares about family and as always thinking about others I have four children and spent most of the time at home making sure that we were doing what we were supposed to be doing while my dad was at church in building the church and going in praying for people having home going services so my mom basically sort of had the role of of taking care of us for the most part and so grace and compassion was to the big things that my mom taught us you mentioned that you walked on it university of Michigan basketball ultimately became a co captain thunder coach John B. line what's the biggest thing you learned from coach before police are fast hitters manage show just got started so I would say his ability and I've said this often I don't know if many of the listeners have heard me before say this but his ability to take all of the sort of goals in visions and all the stuff that goes into wanting to build a elite basketball program how do you build elite men and that are on your basketball team he's able to take all those elements and just bring them into the moment and bring him into the day that were currently in and so one of the big Sir philosophies he has and what he always taught us was let's get better today so in this film session let's not worry about practice like today right now in this very moment we're in film so let's focus on film and how do we get better even watching film then we go into the weight room let's get better today let's give our all and when we get to practice let's get better today and so our first year we went ten twenty two which was absolutely horrible we lost a lot of games but he just had this really unique ability to not focus more so on the record but more so focused on our effort and you know what are we learning from what we're going through and it was through that philosophy I think that even though we were losing we were still learning how to win and so that next year we went from ten inch from ten in twenty two to the first inside a late term a birth for Michigan bass one eleven years we're also joined by somehow tell us about your childhood and your mom and your dad sure I grew up in Troy Michigan my parents came here from India in the seventies my dad was a mechanical engineer and came to America with the job in nineteen seventy joined by my mom in seventy three after they got married they started life in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania but shortly thereafter made their way to Michigan and settled here where they had my two sisters and then myself and dak continued as a mechanical engineer in this area and my mom has been working for the Henry Ford health system for the last thirty five years what's the biggest thing mom touches the biggest thing that touch I'm going to attribute one thing to both of them said okay sure okay a lot of time for you to cut quite a bit of time so I would say he strength for sure my father was a sick for much of my upbringing and I think on his and it was you know growing up pretty fast and and finding strength and myself and in that situation and how you kind of cope with that being a big part of your childhood and your upbringing after that and my mother was his primary caretaker for a long time so seeing her working full time you know I was I was my sisters are eight eleven years older than me so I was the baby so I was still young when all this is taking place so caring for me making sure I was still having a full fill childhood and caring.

"Goodness and and maybe it's still just me having that experience of trying to find a parking space outside of a sold out you know Pepsi center big Bucks tickets seventeen thousand people in there primarily women who absolutely loves Michelle Obama including my wife is a very smart person she's a Democrat but she hosted the big town hall for John McCain when he asked and and issues a free thinker but no Michelle Obama is a force and let's just hope that Donald Trump doesn't have to face her I'm not so he couldn't beater but man I don't want to find out a five five four zero five eight two five five the number and yet just wanted to mention this to you quickly turn Trinidad said does such a great job in news and we opened the four o'clock hour the newscasters talking about Michael Hancock was and they're talking about you know how we've got the soaring you know what we've got pedestrians being struck in a larger and larger numbers by cars we have big increase in hit run so what's the answer of Denver I don't maybe Paul the roads for a start what we're gonna get to that my friend you but I couldn't believe it I mean I went down took to grab a quick dinner with some friends also happen to be Democrats was a fascinating conversation but but anyway I mean it was truly like the face of the moon trying to go down a side street in Denver in the whole way I was just telling him this is what liberals do this is what we're every every bump we at this is what liberals do this is what liberals do I mean give me a break it should not be like that no major American city this was not a twenty five inch snow storm that struck out of the blue and so now Denver is is talking about they're gonna do the side streets tomorrow right finally that's what I need that's planning ahead but anyway here's my point in the other so Michael Hancock comes out today and so so what are they going to do we've got all these pedestrians now being hit by cars we've got soaring hit runs what is Hancock solution of course it's a slogan and and I almost and you know I rarely say that word that should not you don't ever be spoken I really say that word I'm I don't want anybody get the wrong idea afterward I really say that but I blurted out in studio fortunately before we we went as if he did this slogan on air because it was another one of those is this real moments here's the slogan so we have this in and this is the kind of law I do so I have these pictures for ever branded in my mind if you know people who one second ago world life you know mothers fathers sons daughters and now they're dead bodies in the street because some perpetrator random over and killed them and then they often take off so this is definitely serious stuff in his solution is this slogan be aware it's me out there I mean it is it is childish it is childish it Mister Merrett this is not a joke and I'm not saying he's trying to joke but this is childish you've got real life mothers fathers sisters brothers sons daughters dying on your streets in record numbers and you come up with the slogan and how much you think they paid somebody for this anything to be too much coke aware it's me out there yeah well that's you're going to keep the people are running over people from running over people how does that even work logically how is that supposed to cut through the noise and reach that person who is running over pedestrians will first have to ask yourself why are they running over pedestrians and then why are they leaving well guess what Mister mayor very high likelihood that they are high that they are hi Mister mayor so how about this slogan be aware be aware that if you're high on dope you're a lot more likely to run somebody over pop up that slogan my goodness it's stunning but you go back and you look at the numbers and you look at all the bad things that started to increase and often in very big waste after marijuana was legalized here and it does not none of us have to be you know traffic engineers to understand the connection between do you wear more people on dope mean more dead people on the streets I mean it it's just common sense so when you look at the calendar same home when did this increase in pedestrians being hit by cars start what else happened that year when did this big increase in hit run start what else happened that year and why do people hit and run it alone what do they run well usually because they're intoxicated by drugs or alcohol so you see all these big increases starting with legalization but they don't want to address that because they really don't care in the end be aware it's ME out there about this one there's anybody truly does any adult I think that's going to save a single life I got one Hey drivers it's high time we pay attention I like that sell it to the city Jon Hamm Parker Colorado you're on the Dan Catholic show welcome thanks Dan great show thank you the you know be where it's John on the phone but he already knew that a quick moment that I haven't heard anybody mention but I'm sure everyone assumes that if Michelle Obama wore to run it would not be Michelle running the presidency it would be a rock running is another term do you really think so I think he hides under the lazy boy I mean a and I'm being serious here who do you think truly wears the pants in that family I mean don't turn out I I believe this in my heart I think she is an incredibly strong willed person and in that marriage I if if the balance of power tips one way or the other don't you think it's toward her.

"Was funny both the OB and I came up with the C. minus and we'll tell you why I hate you know god today is a pretty good receiver but Hey he's equal opportunity exporter he took a bomb over the top of a move Camaro for seventy four yards for a touchdown in a few minutes later he took cal fuller for about fifty and where were the safeties where are the safe that's covered too they were they weren't even in the picture are they they're they're trying to try you know Joe approach make big plays instead of doing the damn gun job just like what gave up you know make it up no Danny Jackson gave up their touched on last week you're trying to freelance your plan outside the defense you're gonna keep getting sees a sea monsters do you start playing discipline football well one of the other factors that come into the stand I and I when you ask me I said as C. minus but I'll tell you what what what puzzled me was why did why we didn't blitz from the get go to go after this kid it took quite awhile from the figure that out they just let an art are down rush when they did nothing all day they did they couldn't get there the mac could get none of it nobody could get there until we again we started let's see normally when you have a kid a rookie especially this kid who never took was never had a down in the National Football League you take him out of his misery you attack him from the get go you come with every blitz coupled with every lying trick you could think up good views the line the office of line what's the hell out of them and we didn't do that this kid goes down it puts seven up on a board that never should happen folks I gotta tell you though it's all about the second or cal fuller's save the game third in one and the six yard line in the tie score and he was able to trip up the JD McKissick I know it was him or no one and any any got on that was a huge client had a corner on us and you know what Hey if you string tackle that's the way things work what a lot of young players but pretty good today think about this just per Horsted made of great great touchdown catch on or take off also David McCumber Sean today could catching a touchdown pass and bank in or out on the ground Anthony Miller and my mind was the player of the game well defensively the quick Kaski he again for reading young guy Dan yeah I'd be not basically a starter in there he comes in I'm gonna tell you what that could play some pretty good football there's more to sign them and keep don't let him get out of here no question about it the I I don't think they will I don't think it's gonna be huge offers for in a quick calculation there should be able to go home be your do you beat you might be surprised I could I could be your right you who brought it to the guys sponsored by Blue Cross blue shield of Illinois the card to bring through it all we got I think David McCumber he gave us enough on the ground to keep the Russian bay in late in the game the the yeah we're screaming about our guys are out of shape alliance they couldn't get out of their stance rushing the passer late in the game which gave to misty the time to be able to throw it as part of that is because the running game they're pretty darn good it was nice to see that kid give it that extra second and third effort and keep plowing and trying to gain that extra yard two three yards I like to see more of it but I tell you what he did at graduation soul I have no idea how you got so open to for the last us down I mean how does he see stand in the middle of feel for the game fatigue does that the defense is they they they get tired they blow assignments right left now you know today it's almost fitting that it is thanksgiving and think about this at the end of the day be tonight the Turkey it looked like a bomb went off and it'll all be gone just a pile of bones and some skin but wait wait wait wait what does one drumstick left that's sort of where the bears were able to come up with the drumstick at the end to be able to win and score touchdowns and finally get a young get at a margin of victory I'll tell you what you talk about the bears need to when they needed this win today there were five and sixteen still below five hundred only one last last week and again playing against the lies a horrible for horrible football deep but now would see that now let's see how well Nagy as how well promiscuous how well our offense of line is and our receivers can they what touchstones the board the next four games were played some pretty good football teams folks okay let's see how good the R. got it even kill right here were six and six let's see if they can pull it off okay we're gonna watch Dallas here in a few moments that's who we play next Thursday night big game think about this we got Dallas then we have to go to Green Bay and then we come back against the Kansas City Chiefs who secondary is probably worse than Detroit and then closed out in Minnesota they I said we were basically in the playoffs well we're too when when the playoffs and really just yeah I mean pillow fight games the last two weeks maybe we can get some confidence and learn how to play Big Boy Chicago Bears football this next we'll see how good they are down yeah well there's you really want to see what to do see if they want to compete and you know get played out of these these riffraff teams are maddening but somehow Boca group they pull to amount for playoff gave four games against playoff teams left the cowboys are first and then they'll start for sure the place but looks like they're going to win the east then you gotta Green Bay often Lambeau Achaemenids coming back the cheese and Patrick homes that we also victim had relevancy and it be amazing if the game in Minnesota somehow some way the bit that actually matter with the bears going to blast well it could but that the key I we like Dan adventure we got a keen Hicks coming back and as far as I'm scared he's a he's a man on the street that he is that he makes it run I'll tell you the only thing that bothered me about that Danny he's been out a long long time what kind of shape is he going to be an I mean he's got a play one play out of for you know two out of four it's cold you don't get tired when it's cold as we sit right now that run that one five year yeah it's called you don't get tired as we sit right now those who believe that the bears the bears are eighth in the NFC at six and six there ahead of the eagles out of the Panthers Jason I have came back to the rams and then there's a

of the house tape from the inside and nephews sign heard noises tae want to them to the window to investigate and the next thing you Chino there was a officer leash someone she would've known to be a police officer shouting commands and within point six seconds I had expert breakdown the video point six seconds after the command each other well Mister Merrett in terms of the day what you said in the press conference to what people are aware of there been ten shootings in us basically less than six months seven of them fatal by the the fort worth police department this is a police department that has less to seventeen hundred officers this is an astonishing number what's up what is your sense of what's going on in fort worth well that's that's really the important question and it it's it's it's significant at this point because I believe that they're going to try to scapegoat this officer who's been been what the force so less than a year he's a problem he should be prosecuted what he did was criminal but who gave him the order to go to show up to this private home with a tactical unit in what's going on in the policing culture in fort worth that is allowing for a deadly force to be used so often is there de escalation training are they were a recruiting the appropriate individuals to service police officers within this community are they responding differently to black communities than they are about to put a predominately white areas within the city all of these things need to be brought into question as we as we move on not only from this tragedy but but but figure out how to stop these things from reoccurring I wanted to get your response to former fort worth police chief Joe fitz Gerald who released a statement Sunday criticizing the city's handling of the shooting he said yesterday a different officer shoots an innocent woman in response to a welfare check call in response we have been presented with blurred pictures of an alleged weapon a five minute press conference with no details from a lieutenant who Tatian grain presented no solutions during this time of crisis where is the interim police chief where is PO a president Manny Ramirez where is mayor price why weren't they at Sunday's news conference why was no substantial information provided on may nineteenth two thousand nineteen when my department successfully rescued an adopted girl from the kidnapper they raced to the microphone to seek credit and fame yet today when our community needs them more than ever there noticeably and inexcusably absent there's a vacuum of leadership and these individuals must be held accountable now that's a statement from the former fort worth police chief Joe fitzgerald fitz Gerald who is African American was fired in may after a confrontation with the president of the Texas state wide police union during conference and is fighting to get his job back his supporters say police shootings of African Americans have skyrocketed since his firing and his attorney Stephen Kennedy said in a statement and doctor fitz Gerald been reinstated months ago a touchy on it probably would be alive today and the number of police shootings would not be in double digits at Lee Merritt are you also calling for his reinstatement and you share his assessment I share his assessment but the numbers aren't significantly better during a two fitzgerald's tender I look for to speak about leadership within the four police department it reflects the words the sign of the policies that we proceed the pursued while the chief of police did not reduce instances of brutality significantly I was first introduced to Mr fitz Gerald in the case of Jacqueline Craig Mathis Joe did do the right thing and in that incident where a mother called the neighbor I'm sorry I called the police after her neighbor choked her eight year old son in instead of helping that mother with that incident and all a white police officer ride and brutalized that mom and her teenage daughters chief Ichiro suspended that officer for ten days and that was the end of his punishment in them that she Fisher one about punishing black police officers who he believed made statements derogatory towards the apartment towards the department concerning how this this case was handled by the city so he's now speaking from the same languages those department chiefs that he may be punished during that incident what I say all that to say the rhetoric is popular right now but we need people who are actually going to pursue plans policy procedures training in take real steps to make presume significant initiatives to actually change the police and culture two fifty sounds like he's reformed is ready to make some changes but we need to see that manifests itself an actual action the man I want to ask you about this whole issue of the police unions in many cities the police unions are the ones that have enormous influence over the politicians and how they deal with with a police conduct what's the situation there in fort worth with the influence of the of the pollution because obviously it is kind of strange that neither the mayor nor the chief of police attended a press conference to talk about this particular issue yes the the police union in fort worth just like the police union and out of the city of Dallas for both rooms all was killed just just last year exercise an enormous amount of influence and an influence normally OR typically comes down on behalf of police misconduct and so they work pretty hard to ensure that there won't be accountability for officers whoever or engaged or found responsible for offices are so yeah the the police unions are have blood on their hands to speak frankly and and it's that culture and that but sharing the blame of for this staggering numbers that you see coming out of fort worth I wanted to go to James Smith Tate Jefferson's neighbor who called the police they call the non emergency line he's speaking to the fort worth star telegram a call from is to alert me the neighbors doors usually to see if there's anything wrong I noticed all the large room in the house.

"Welcome back his attention SO immediate bots and other Brett Kavanaugh hit the budget in brutal fashion and then they blame the FBI if you say I saw a bad thing happen. what do you think you guys gonna do with that. according to The Washington Post that inaction made public in recent days through new reports about Kavanaugh's alleged misbehavior has renewed a bitter debate about how is confirmation was handled angering Democrats about a process they felt was rushed and enemy animating Republicans who cried would be viewed as attempts to assassinate Kavanaugh's character. I love that the idea here is that what what led to this outrage is a lack of investigation by the FBI not a bunch of fresh non corroborated allegations from The New York Times and been blown so far out of proportion at the New York times wouldn't run this is a new story because they didn't feel there is enough Jews so in other words New York times editorial board said this isn't news enough restaurant in the news section but the Washington post in your times editorial boards also say the FBI should expend full resources investigating this nothing burger an allegation it's unreal and obviously politically motivated just as the original allegations against Cavanaugh war by the Democrats now please you for I don't know I'm lazy for did what what what made it happen maybe didn't I have no evidence one way or the other neither do you that's the point without evidence how the hell are we supposed to judge of a thing is true but what I do know is that the Democrats with no evidence were willing to destroy the character break out in a they're willing to malign him lie about him and now they're doing the same thing for political gain. so as I say the media's angle on this is the F. B. I.'s bad to just get this straight it's not that the New York times bad for printing. yes let's allegation. for anything that baseless allegation to make it seem like it had more of a basis or for not bold faced reporting I'm Christine lazy Ford's close friend under cutting her entire allegation that the the problem here is the FBI. The Washington Post editorial board has a piece today titled the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh turned out to be more of a sham than eighteen and this is the word of the day yesterday was jam is on every democratic to eat a sham investigation share on this ship almost as though everybody's talking to each other using exactly the same verbiage weird weird so the Washington post editorial board says in September twenty eighteen as the battle over the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court rage then senator Jeff flake of Arizona and Chris Coons del were struck a deal Mr flick would delay confirming cabin up until the after I completed an investigation into credible allegations of sexual misconduct but the investigation couldn't be open and the open ended last ages despite these cabins both senators insisted the inquiry must be conducted in good faith. GOP senators who subsequently voted to confirm Mr Kavanaugh praise the resulting investigation for being thorough now comes additional evidence that the investigation was in fact far from their in more of a sham than it seemed at the time reasonable investigative steps were not pursued on the gum issues over the Washington post's they know they know those gum shoes as FBI experts. yeah again I said at the time that that these foolishness and Jeff flake caving to the Democrats and pretending as though any FBI investigation would please them is insane the FBI does not have unlimited resources beyond that it is not the F. B. I.'s job to track down every unverified allegations made about human there are literally thousands of allegations that came in. all of them and yet I'm talking about like the crazy letters. no one has been substantiated not one I do you think the press haven't spent time trying to substantiate the stuff it was that easy what was the F. B. I. gonna do truly at the media have not already done what have done now and so media can't come up with anything to show me the evidence that the F. B. I. missed the thing what's the thing they miss what's the crucial area they missed here. according to The Washington Post in an article adapted from their forthcoming book on the cabin controversy two New York times reporters revealed that the FBI interviewed practically no one regarding one of the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh in which one of his yell classmates Deborah Ramirez said Cavanaugh drunkenly exposed himself to her during a Senate testimony Cavanaugh said if the incident Mister Merrett describes it occurred it would have been the talk of campus I reporting suggested it that it was the reporters wrote they found that federal agents interviewed none of the two dozen people miss Ramirez said could bolster her story and ignored and the an allegation of a second episode okay a second episode is the one that we are talking about as far as the as far as the. in general allegation that there that she had two dozen witnesses or whatever weird because she provided exactly those witnesses to these New York times reporters they could come up with no one who actually verified her story. in fact she herself couldn't verify her story because she said the jet to sit around for a week trying to figure out if it was Brett Kavanaugh. but according to The Washington Post this investigative shot in this was apparently the fault not of the F. B. I. but of Republicans looking for cover at first a limited the FBI questioning to only four people about two separate allegations agents eventually got expansion they contacted ten people but not extension of the deadline as though the deadline actually mattered here if you could stand in the deadline for months bottom line is that the media are grasping for any straw with which to club the DOJ and to claim trump and a club cabin on it doesn't matter this allegation fell apart upon arrival it was D. O. a and it doesn't matter they're treating it as though it is an anime corpse willing that sucker around like we get a Bernese and pretends natural story it ain't any and all this is part of a broader trend which is the suppose a corruption inside the trump administration over at the DOJ in like really really weak stuff in a second I'll get you a little bit more on this so the democratic candidates of course making hay out of this cab nothing even though there's no hay to make Connelly Harris was the most rehearsed any cheap people have compared Elizabeth Warren to Hillary Clinton come here is is much more similar to Hillary Clinton than I was before Elizabeth Warren is a lot more shrewd she doesn't appear quite as calculated as calmly Heris Connelly here is is rehearsed in every way shape or form she was an MSNBC last night with Rachel Maddow. it just really wildly entertaining stuff here's come out here is explaining it when it came to the cab not hearing men were coming up to her on the street in public places crying to which I'm gonna say that's a bunch of crap here's camel hair. I mean listen after the initial hearings that happened a year ago. the number of women and men. approach to me the you know public places and. cried. about what this meant to them because there is so much about this issue and one of the worst things that happens is that when we are not willing to believe the victim and take them seriously. okay we're gonna get back into this routine believe all believe all women they this whole nonsense that you push before help believe most women have believe women and and have it not by percentage about believe allegations that have substantiation of acting on how that I don't like Robert in details he was a prosecutor for god's sake and do I really believe that men were coming up two comma Harris on the street wrapping their arms around her and sobbing on her shoulder member cabinet now no I'm sorry I don't believe that the good news for calmly Harris's she's receiving a bit of a renaissance in the media there's a big article in The Washington Post yesterday about coming here is going to Howard University there's another big article in your times about coming here is they're trying to sort of revitalize our campaign because they're starting to realize that Elizabeth Warren has no support in the black community and that Kamel Harris may have more support in the black community if she gets better media coverage they're trying to revive a fire the the most awkward attempt to redefine her dying candidacy images like sixteen percent two months ago she's now at five or six percent this happened on Jimmy Fallon I don't know why Jimmy Fallon continues to do this but he does this slow jamming the news with particular democratic candidates and it's so awkward and so terrible and so telling here here is Jimmy Fallon slow jamming the news with Kamel iris if you call this comedy or entertainment man let me recommend you actually go view some actual comedy. I like. but I gotta ask later this country's been so divided on opposite sides of the bed. what do you think we can all just come together. well it's my opinion that we need a president who fights for the best of who we are. and over the past three years Donald Trump has done the exact opposite. all the genesis that trumps the bad guy. the. so much humor shown much comedy and. I can't imagine why Jimmy Fallon is falling apart the ratings it didn't come like Harris wildly entertaining good good stuff there from the twenty twenty democratic candidates now the fact is that she is not part of this race at this point at all coming up Elizabeth Warren is shaking up the rations right huge crowd in New York City yesterday engines pulled bunch of really.

"Ray Appleton is on newstalk five eighty one oh five nine K. M. J.. yeah I am. Russia right now as a matter of fact. red Cavanaugh has been hit with some fresh sexual misconduct allegations. this time at Yale in the nineteen eighties amid the claims that the FBI did not investigate the incident before the the content you is. contentious confirmation. why why why even bring this up again why why why I mean the the first stop that the first time around through this he was just blown to pieces the case was so weak but maybe that's why maybe they think they really got something on him but this is a New York times article surprise detailing an account by classmate Max tire who says he saw cabin I was a freshman at the time at this party with his pants down. Gordon all the stories you know Brett Kavanaugh spent a lot of time in his pants down in college so friends allegedly pushed. his manhood into a female students and in a dorm party so I guess this was a gang grow pot involving Kavanaugh's. yeah. and so this guy Stiers telling senators in the FBI about this and also he's complaining the bureau did not investigate it according to The New York Times best tires with this alleged friend of capitalism friend runs a nonprofit in Washington. and has declined to discuss the story publicly why is he bringing up however he did cooperate the story with officials who spoke earlier with fire knocking camera is obviously the declined to talk to the York times about stars allegations. he's denied all of the accusers in the a gala geishas in the past of course. so the claim is similar to the allegation made by a former accuser. emperor merece who unlike Christine lousy Ford was asked not to testify at Cabela's confirmation hearings. she however was interviewed by the FBI. and remember us claim that you know. can I get to watch my language on this. so I want to convey in the way that it it's easily convertible but in doing that I lose my job rumors claim the Kabbalah exposed himself to her and rested in her face and a dorm party forcing her to touch it then comma. so these new allegations of unwanted sexual contact revealed was it Saturday yeah I was detailed in this lengthy New York times article about Romero's which adds as the paper says wait tour allegation. now the reporters wrote did during a Senate testimony miss Cavell said the law if the incident Mister Merrett described had occurred it would have been the talk of the campus. and now the reporting well it twice. for the fifty two year old research psychologist. and professor through all this national attention last year you know what you did after she came forward with the sexual assault allegations following the appointment of capital and we'll have to go through the whole story again but they get to the point about this latest one. the individual that. this supposedly happened to. has no relevance recollection of it happening. what the New York times goes ahead then jump Cendant puts it out there anyway and then Gee whiz by the way we forgot to tell you. I don't know what to do with his stuff anymore I mean it's I I'm gonna I'm gonna tell you about it because it's in the news but at the same time I feel totally ridiculous because it's just so undocumented invalidated it's there's there's nothing to hold up as being the real deal again it's just something sensational it's about a trump appointee the guy's a Supreme Court justice and there's just this air out there that so there are a number of people who just want to believe any of this stuff. I just hope it's so true. they hold on to it with their every breath. and even when they're told later well the victim doesn't remember how the victim wasn't sure it was him the victim the victim the alleged victim. they don't let it go. and that's the problem in a very general way we've talked about this so many times when a man is accused. whether you did or not when a man is accused and he could be as innocent as the day is long. the accusation leaves the stigma hanging over the man for the rest of his life. with women and granted the the allegations against women are are far less frequent than men of course but it doesn't seem to be the same way with a woman if a woman is accused of. you know having sex with a male minor. and it turns out that it was completely bogus he was head of plaque from a group of young boys Hey no problem that poor woman she's a victim of terrible. but if it's if it's a male teacher there was accused of forcing himself on a bunch of young female minors and he's exonerated. right did not happen we know that beyond a shadow of a doubt did not happen the stigma is always there. always there. so if you're. for a minute trouble point de well that stigma is also a. so therefore when these stories recycle when something new comes around boy you gonna jump on this big time because one of these days we're gonna keep throwing darts at the wall we're actually hit something and it could be true. so I feel about stuff you know. it just gets hold. coming up I got some good stories I wasn't getting about this solid gold toilet that's been stolen that was from Winston Churchill's birthplace I know where they're solid gold toilets and I will explain I will explain. and we've got a great story about some animals work for the CIA. right. you know I love animal stories today's daily bus question of our to give that to you I think I have we'll do it again why not the actress Felicity Huffman gets a Hoffman gets fourteen days in prison in the varsity.

York at the New Yorker magazine reported quote after six days a careful assessing her memories in consulting with her attorney sure relate what occurred. so she's telling classmates of Yale that I have no memory of it that should consult an attorney up to six days and suddenly she does. the authors admit that the the new alleged victim has no memory of the alleged incident what the hell are we talking about. it's incredible if the facts don't work simply make it up throws a mud and see what happens. so let's continue. it is so absurd to blame innocent individuals in America for the misconduct of a few unrelated to you possessing some inanimate metal object that they commit a crime that you might have in your home. we have Michelle from Texas I'm a go to her first how big or pressure cookers and the Boston Marathon big deal right New York City Subway about a month ago big deal I have a pressure cooker according to Beto o'rourke and the Democrats I got to turn it in.
