Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week

"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.

"Close associate of the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is under arrest today. Her name is Gillian Maxwell and just a quick warning that some parts of this story or really disturbing because of the nature of the alleged crimes. Prosecutors say Maxwell helped Epstein sexually exploit underaged girls have seen died in prison, and authorities ruled it a suicide. But the investigation into what he was doing his continued. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas has been following this story. In the meantime, he Ryan Good morning. How did Ah, Maxwell and Epstein know each other? Maxwell comes from a prominent family in the U. K. Her father was was a media magnet there. And she and abstain met in the 19 nineties. They dated for a period of time, but on a broader level, she became a close confident of hiss. They had a professional relationship as well. And there have long been allegations in lawsuits brought by Epstein's alleged victims that Maxwell for years helped abstain recruit young girls to be sexually exploited on even after Epstein suicide last year, prosecutors said that the investigation is, you noted, continued into his associates and possible co conspirators, and Maxwell was seen then a za likely person of interest for investigators. She's facing federal charges now what are the charges? She faces six counts in all, including conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in sexual acts and conspiracy to transport miners. To engage in criminal sexual activity. She also faces perjury charges for allegedly lying about her role in the scenes activities when she was asked about it under oath during a deposition a couple of years ago. What are prosecutors saying about what they allege? She did. Well. The events detailed in the indictment took place between 1994 1997 on they relate to three underage girls who were allegedly abused by Epstein. Here is how the Acting U. S attorney in Manhattan, Audrey Strauss summed up Maxwell's role. Mansell played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Prosecutors allege that Epstein and Maxwell had a sort of systematic method for luring these young girls in they would pretend to befriend them by taking them shopping by taking them to the movies by asking about their family or their school life. Maxwell would encourage the girls to let Epstein pay for their travel and their education, and prosecutors say that this was all part of a scheme designed to make these young girls feel indebted to abstain. And once Epstein Maxwell had developed a report with these with these underage girls, prosecutors say that Maxwell would try to normalize sexual abuse in a couple of ways by undressing in front of the victim. Or being present when Epstein was sexually abusing the victim on in at least one instance, as we heard, Strauss say, prosecutors allege that Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay, so she's arrested now she's been charged. Does the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein stop here? This is not the end of the road. The top prosecutor in Manhattan Audrey Strauss, who I mentioned earlier said yesterday that this investigation is still ongoing. Of course, this case has generated a ton of public interest, in part because I've seen had ties to a lot of prominent people that includes Britain's Prince Andrew. On. There are questions about what Prince Andrew, for example and others. Other prominent people knew about absence activities. As for Maxwell, she has serious charges here.

"Of late investor Jeffrey Epstein, now in custody, transferred to New York being transferred after Gillian Maxwell was arrested this morning, They went to court to hear federal prosecutors now looking to hold her accountable for what they say she and Epstein did. Well, W W CBS reporter Peter Haskell heard from acting U. S Attorney Audrey Strauss then talked about this with anchor Mac Rosenberg on Thursdays. Afternoon Roundup. Peter What can you tell us about these charges? According to the prosecutor, Maxwell was the key player in the sex trafficking scheme. Just travels says she recruited, enticed and groomed girls. His hymn is 14 10. Shanab's team both abused the Children. The six counts include sex trafficking and perjury. And when do prosecutors say that these crimes took place? So Strauss described his really as a prequel to the Epstein case. The charges against Epstein stem from crimes committed, allegedly between 2000 to 2005. The Maxwell case dates back to 1994. If you put them together, the allegations are very, very similar. At the time periods. You're different, and according to authorities, he's crimes took place in New York City, Florida, New Mexico and London. Epstein's death, of course, ruled a suicide last year in a Manhattan jail cell. And in the past, Maxwell has denied any allegations here. So what happens now? Prosecutors her hoping that other victims will come forward. His indictment mansions has three of them and not by name. It is believe there are other victims out there. And they hope that by bringing this case and buy the spotlight in the attention that have receives, others will step forward. There are a number of elect alleged victims here. And some of them say that they were also abused by Epstein's friends said there could be some powerful people who are beginning to sweat now. And the prosecutor says his investigation is continuing.

Police officer strikes woman during dispute at Miami airport

"In Florida a Miami Dade police officer has been relieved of duty after video emerged of him hitting a black woman at the Miami International Airport yesterday. Body Cam footage shows the woman arguing with the officer before she moved just inches away from his face, and it escalates from. You just heard the officer hitting the woman. She then falls to the ground as more police. Rush into the frame, the Miami Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez says he was shocked and angered by the video and has asked the Miami Dade State Attorney to investigate the use of force Miami Herald reporter. David Ovalles has been covering this and David, the body cam footage begins after the woman and the police officer appear to have already been in something of a dispute. Do? We know how this started. Yes, so the woman is twenty one year old pairs, Anderson she was at the airport and had missed a flight, so she was according to the police yelling at the ticket agent. They call. The police tried to calm her down according to them, you see her yelling at the police officer taunting him about one point. He kind of steps back. Back a little bit, and then she steps into his face, and then he claims it was a head bud, and then he just you know delivers a slap. That is very visceral when you watch it, it is for sure and when you see the video, and from what you can tell from your reporting a in reference to the officer saying that she had headbutted him. Is there any indication that that had happened in? What are you hearing about whether? It would have been an appropriate response to hit her like that. I wouldn't say it's a head, but but certainly one could argue that perception, but as for whether it's inappropriate use of force. It's it's Kinda hard to tell I mean in Florida. The stand your ground law allows anybody not just police officers, no duty to retreat so whether it would be a criminal charge that's going to be debatable. Certainly administrative you talk to police, officers and I've had more than a few reach out to me and say that's absolutely how they're taught. They call it a diversionary strike. Now there's the other element in that. She wasn't wearing a mask and so there's this whole Cova vid angle as well so it's messy. It's not. optically, it looks really really bad but I think there's going to be a lot more nuance to a case like this. Then a few of the other use of force cases we've seen in south Florida in the last couple of weeks. Right and look tensions between black people and white officers has been at the center of so many of these cases that we've been. been talking about. But how are people reacting to this incident? Given the both the woman and the officer are black well. That's one of the sort of grey areas that POPs up in Miami more than than other places because we are such diverse community, white officers here are in the minority. Most are Hispanic and there's a pretty good amount of black officers here to. In this case, the officer Tony Rodriguez is a black Puerto Rican officer, so there is a sort of added element of that you know I. Think a case like this also underscores what a lot of block officers are feeling in terms of tension and conflict block officers really know too well what it's like to grow up black, but also feel very conflicted because they're devoted to their jobs, and they feel like they're being singled out as quote, unquote sellouts, and so it also underscores. A lot of the dynamics in these really precarious times.

"We are sitting here with New York State. Attorney General Letitia James and also Arthur girl are social justice attorney Lithuania Mamer so today in our who we elect series as we get to our lesson. We're talking about the role of state attorney. General the State Attorney. General is the chief legal adviser to the state government and the state's chief law enforcement officer the State Attorney General's actually elected in forty three states and majority of them serve four year terms but in Alaska Hawaii New Hampshire New Jersey and Wyoming. The attorney general is appointed by the governor. And for those of you who are listening in Tennessee. Your State Supreme Court actually appoint the Attorney General for an eight year term. And then there's main main the state legislature actually Alexa or votes for the Attorney General for a two year term. So you WANNA make sure to check which based upon your state how the attorney general is elected but since we have a sitting attorney general in the room. Let's bring her back into the conversation. This is her day job and she's GonNa tell us what an attorney general does so. It is an elected position. It's independent from the governor of the State of New York. I run every four years. I serve as the state attorney which means I represent all the state agencies and I defend the state legislature when they pass laws and so we have been challenged on a wide range of laws Law where which requires that all children who attend school vaccinated was challenged by some anti vaccine. Upstate I'm in the city. As well. There was a law that was recently challenged with regards to how we engage in our electoral politics focusing. On fusion that was recently challenged there was a law which gave elected officials arrays that was challenged. There's laws for instance in individuals who are incarcerated. Who believed they were wrongly convicted individuals who've been abused in our correctional who believe that they've been or alleged that they've been abused in our correctional facility. Individuals who are detained because they are sex offenders we represent so there's a wide range of laws where the office of a State Attorney General and our State Council work where we do State Council. We also do affirmative litigation. As most of you know our -firmative litigation means pattern and practice cases so recently we launched an investigation into NYPD based on their fair evasion policies individuals who jump over the turnstile were arrested for fare evasion or theft of services we argued that it was discriminatory or we allege that it's discriminatory and we are seeking information from NYPD with respect to what we saw video on social media and reports of police officers. Both who were on duty and off duty that there was this unofficial policy of arresting people of Color and that police officers were only stationed at certain subway stations throughout the city of New York. And we are looking into that. We're looking into school. Two pipeline policies in schools all throughout the state of New York. We are looking into environmental degradation where businesses and corporations basically dump hazards into our water on our land etc and we also do some civic engagement. We recently did an effort where we organized two hundred volunteers to go door to door in central Brooklyn to inform individuals about deed theft because what we are seeing not only in Brooklyn but all over the state. Now we're seeing it in buffalo and parts of Syracuse. Were seeing the greatest transfer of wealth since reconstruction we're individuals who are losing their homes individuals who are equity rich and cash poor and being victimized by criminals we have all these bureaus where we focus on environmental law charities law we have jurisdiction over all charities in the state of New York to make sure that not for profit organizations are fulfilling their purpose and honoring the mission and spending the assets and safeguarding the assets. I'm sure most of you heard that there was a not for profit organization known as the trump foundation. Oh Yeah Yours and That was being used as a personal piggy bank by certain individuals. We closed it down and we recovered two million dollars and we distribute it to valid charitable charitable organizations in the state of New York. We have a healthcare bureau. We have investor protection bureau to ensure that individuals on Wall Street are protecting the investments of invest doors We have a bureau that focuses on antitrust. Most recently we lost an Exxon case. We just recently lost. We were concerned about the merger between T. Mobile and sprint. We thought it's it's going to increase costs for individuals who have mobile devices particularly those who prepay for those services and we're concerned again about that concentration of power. We think it's bad for consumers bad for the economy that for workers. Unfortunately the judge ruled against us and allowed this merger to go forward and at this point. We're considering whether or not we should appeal so those are just like some of the big cases. We've got also have a federal initiatives case a bureau where we are standing up in protecting the rights of individuals and we went to the United States Supreme Court in regards to the census because the federal government this administration thought it was necessary to add to the census the questionnaire a citizenship question right and as we all know the census has nothing to do with citizenship and therefore everyone counseling everyone. Everyone matters in there for everyone should be counted. And we do not want an undercount. Because it's going to affect the number of congressional representatives and two. It's going to affect the amount of money we get to New York state so we're involved in a wide range of just you. I mean for those of us who watch like law and order and like all shows right. It's not just like you. Attorney with two eight. Th there's a big over like eighteen hundred attorneys with God over sixteen offices. They run from the northern border. Watertown all the way to Suffolk County on Long Island and they're focused on all of these areas. But I do wake up every morning. I must admit with fire in my belly. I walk into that office and I do urge them to sue somebody then. I do go home and then I'd do it again and they always always closed their doors when I walk in. Oh God who is she going to go after today? Thurgood Marshall would be very proud of my soul. So since you've been elected you've recovered one point one billion dollars that's billion with a New Yorker so first of all. Thank you WANNA get money. A- as we out mystery scientific out here getting money like how. Are you getting our money? Like how does that process work this unpaid like do people Os Money? So it's funny that you say that because we also go after people who all the state money okay and one of the issues that we need to talk about the need to resolve is we sent out what they call dunning letters to individuals who go to state universities. Who Don't pay back their student. Loans and student debt is a big issue and we've gone after some private players who prey upon students. And so it's an issue when it concerns me that we sent out dunning lit letters and charge additional interest. If you don't pay your student loan and so that's something that I want to talk to the governor about to see whether or not we could rectify that as opposed to us sending out these threatening letters I'm too. We've got Medicaid Fraud Unit so we go after individuals who basically engage in scams and try to deceive into fraud on Medicaid program and so that results in millions of dollars to the state of New York and then we go after bad actors bad landlords bet corporations and we secure funds during the foreclosure crisis my predecessor went after a number of banks who benefited from the foreclosure crisis and we took those there was one settlement against Goldman Sachs resulted in billions of dollars. And so all of that money we now use. I'm so happy because I can take those funds and I have and I'm giving out check. I gave out a check to buffalo the other day so that they could address those Zombie. Homes homes that have been abandoned as a result is foreclosure crisis and this money will be used to address to renovate it and converted into affordable housing code maintenance issues because the Zombie homes dot the landscape. They bring down the values of Adjacent property and they were attractive. Nuisances and they attract a criminal element so. I gave out a million dollars to close jemaine dollars to Buffalo. We did it in UTICA. We did it in Albany. We did it in Long Island. We did it in Syracuse. Some environmental cases where we sue individuals who degrade our environment. We take that money. And it's used to clean up the Hudson River cleanup environmental slights cleanup landfills. So I yes so. It's like Christmas in in. What are we in February Christmas? It's fabulous and but a lot of the money goes to the General Fund. And as most of you know right now we have filed and we're in the midst of negotiation the most extensive and comprehensive lawsuit against OPIOID manufacturers and distributors. We're we're scheduled trial in March but we're in discussions with these distributors and he's manufacturers and hopefully we can come to some settlement which will address an abate the problem in New York State And also provides resources to fund dead's in hospitals and. I'm hoping we can resolve that we can come to a global settlement all across the nation and provide relief to families. That's amazing that's amazing. Is like at the intersection of not. Only you go and see people right. Yeah you also get our money. Yes Robin Hood Now. Just bringing in connection so in thirty six states. The Attorney General has the power to take over a case handled by a local prosecutor with instructions from the governor of the legislature. I know in New York. Limited in some limited is that the basis even in its limited power for the current attorney. General's office sort of taken over cases of police misconduct. Or how does that work? So we've got sixty two district attorneys all throughout the state of New York. They have their own jurisdiction which is primarily rely related to criminal prosecution. We have limited prosecution. We work with police enforcement and state police. In fact tomorrow I'm announcing the arrest and the indictments of individuals who basically trafficking guns and heroin so we work in coordination with law enforcement officers all across the state of New York and so our office of Criminal Task Force. They do amazing job and tomorrow. We're taking off the streets. I BELIEVE SIXTEEN. Assault weapons primarily repurchased in another state and primarily. These guns are purchased in states with lax gun laws. We did a similar announcement last week in Long Island. I WANNA say it was long island where we took. I think. Thirty two guns off the street again from states that have really lax gun laws so we have limited criminal jurisdiction again. It usually. It's in coordination with state police. But at the governor carved out one exception and he issued an executive order and basically said because of the inherent conflict with police in district attorney's he thought it best and a lot of advocates as well on I included supported the idea that the office of Attorney General can independently investigate police when a civilian dies as a result of a police encounter. So we have the responsibility to investigate all fatalities. Were they involve the police? And what's so interesting? Is that the vast majority of these cases involve individuals who are mentally ill or drugs and that's what's really sad. We were a lot of us. Were jumping up and down. When that executive order came down there was a lot of advocacy work..

"attorney" Discussed on Best Case Worst Case

"During the course of me listening to to tapes that were recorded by the defendant of his officers all the time. Every phone was always recorded and he knew it. There were a lot of criminal conversations on those tapes. He just never thought anybody would ever get him. But during the course of that. I found that this witness called all his wife up from his office and said I'm going to be working late. And then he called another woman and said he'd meet her at a hotel and that is is an indicator that this witness has a history of lying. I had to turn that over to the defense. And we didn't even find it until he was actually already on the the stand because I had twenty two thousand hours of tape to listen to and only a few months to actually go through it. Joy couldn't actually go through the whole thing before the trial but continued going through it at night after we finished with court so much so that many times I slept on the floor of that over over here rumph because I wanted to get through as much of this tape as possible anyway. I found this conversation. I had to disclose it to the defense. We did did that. They wanted to use it against him. And what I didn't know they had something else in their back pocket and that was when he was on the stand they they wanted to play a recording. They played a recording a couple of seconds. And they said is that your voice and he said at Donzel like my voice to me and they said. Did you not meet with zone so at such and such a hotel at such a such a time on such and such date and did you not agree e to refrain from testifying in this case for two hundred and fifty thousand dollars and his response was. I don't remember that. Oh Oh my God. I don't remember that remember. That is not no. I never did anything like that. So we were worried and Watson. Futian had to immediately distanced themselves from the witness and all that stuff and I said to the prosecutor get me that original tape. Got The tape from the judge so we can make copies. What I did was I got on a plane? I flew to Washington. DC A went to the FBI headquarters and the Audio Lab. And I had them go through the tape make copies than go through the tape and enhance it and then I flew back to New York City and overnight I stayed up and did ninety nine pages ages transcripts. And wouldn't you know it on the second to last page of this. Transcript of this tape our Jim. I think I have guessed but I'm not gonNA make it. There's a phone own ringing and the guy tells US witness turn the TV up all the way and he does and you hear the TV volume up all the way and then he says Hello Menachem. Yes yes our guest is still here. Hello Hello Nathan to the witness and says he hung up while I was it Menachem. Welcome that's the name of the defendant in this particular trial he was in. MCC the same place. Jeffrey Epstein killed himself or did he. That's yes where this defendant was and he called from there to check on the status of their guests and their guest was somebody who's being bribed so the next day. When the when the defense attorney said that wanted to mit this tape and the transcript this eight eight pages that they wanted to submit? The prosecutor stood up and said. Oh you're we have no problem admitting that tape but here's a full transcript want what this marked for identification and entered into evidence and you should have seen the defense attorneys and the defendant jobs white. 'cause they're like equate. What's on that tape and sure enough? The judge he cleared the court he sent the jury into the jury room for a little while. And he said to the defense attorneys and to the defendant. This is something that I anticipated. Because who else would benefit from this witness testifying but the defendant in this case this was a very dangerous dangerous tack to take any turns to the lawyers and says learned from this. Never do anything like this. In a court of law get and then and he turns to the defendant and when this case is over. I'm certain I'm GonNa see you again. So it was great and so multiple table attempts on their part to intimidate witnesses and to try to prevent valid evidence from coming in or create fake evidence and put bat in failed miserably. The defendant was convicted and he got the longest white-collar sentence in the history of the southern district at that time so it was good to see justice prevail even in the face of such blatant shenanigans as you might want to call it well Jim. It's so true I mean shenanigans is a great word for it illegal. Behavior is another phrase. But you're absolutely right that this kind of tactic these kinds hindes of tricks. This kind of falsehood that is perpetrated by defense attorneys is happening all the time. Sadly it's something that I experienced routinely as a prosecutor as both a state and federal prosecutor and it's one of the hardest things to deal with as a prosecutor because you feel very much like we are under scrutiny and should be an accent been welcomed that so we're under scrutiny. In a way that defense attorneys aren't and the standard that applies to the prosecutors. Are least it's supposed to apply to the good guys does not apply to the bad guys and it's one of those continuing frustrations ends at. I'm wondering Jim whether you and I shouldn't now think about a new segment. We have worst case scenario. We have breaking the case. Maybe it's time I'm we had trial follies because I have a feeling we have plenty Francey but how bad bar behavior Lotta will add that to our repertoire.

"Came out of prison. I am proud to say already in a pine box. Will you know we've already discussed the the death penalty and so forth so we're not going to get into that right now especially during these festive holidays. But I will say this. I hope hope that that guy losing his license was a lesson to him and two other lawyers around him mean. I don't have a problem with vigorously rigorously defending your client within the bounds of the law. But I have a tremendous problem with defense lawyers who deliberately shortly lie. Who deliberately hide evidence or change? Evidence intimidate witnesses makeup completely fabricated stories. That there's no evidence to back up so that they can create doubt. None of those things are part of a vigorous defense. The law should be followed in every case a no lawyer should be lying in a court of law unfortunately happens every day. It does and so Jim. I'm I'm sure in your career. You must have had a similar experience with defense attorney antics that looking back on now you can laugh about. Maybe it's still makes you mad but you had to have seen some outrageous conduct. Well I will say this that. There was a case three and a half month. Long Trial Red rock commodities. He's Menachem priore was the defendant. I'd done a nineteen month investigation and took down this corporation because of ten different fraudulent schemes. Names that were going on bank and government frog to the tune of four hundred million dollars during that trial We know that the defense attorneys I did some really shifty things for example I traveled to Israel during this investigation. Because that's where the defendant was originally from and I went to get some get documents and do some investigations about the port and you know the port of entry is. It's got a whole different legal entity not kind of assigned to it and when something comes off ship it's kept in the port and until it passes through that port. It hasn't actually arrived in that country and so this defendant was using that limbo timed actually manipulate documents and pretend that things were in the country when they weren't at the end doing all sorts of scheme so I had to get a whole bunch of documents and they had to do with steel that was stored there and and wheat that was stored there air and all sorts of things and it's rather laborious process but I did it and I came back and we put those documents into evidence at trial and when we did the defense attorney one of the five defense attorneys that this guy hired that. We're all working at the same time came up to the prosecutor and said wait a minute it. I didn't know you can get foreign business. Documents admitted into trial. They said Oh yeah you have to follow the such a rule go and he walks away two weeks later. They show up with a stack of documents. There they say come from came from another country and these documents were contracts that seem to undermine all of the charges in this case that these documents actually proved that the documents we had the government had collected during of course of the investigation and during the search when we took down the organization that they were not accurate and they have the defense before. They're putting them into evidence has hand copy to the prosecution so they did and it had this nice little blue ribbon that they put around it just like the documents I had put in and they said these are the documents that we're going to introduce and one of the five prosecutors that we had on our side turned to me and said Jin. You told me these documents didn't exist and I said Mark Mark Stein. I did say they didn't exist and until two weeks ago when you told the defense attorney that you can put in foreign documents they didn't exist. They created them in the last two weeks. And you know what I'm GonNa do. I'm GONNA take these to the lab right now and we're going to date them and we're gonNA find out when they were signed..

"Does that however constitute a conflict of interest and the need to recuse is he not allowed to have opinions and then come in and serve as attorney general yet. Look, I I don't know all the facts, I don't know all the things he said, I don't know exactly what the internal folks at the DOJ would say about it. I do think it raises a concern. I had issues from time to time as US attorney where it seemed like the best thing to do was to recuse myself. And there were times where the the internal ethics folks said specifically, you don't have to recuse yourself, and then sometimes given the nature of the issue, and given what people might think about it. Sometimes even if your ethics people tell you and anything any lawyer worth their salt would say the same. Thing. It's still better to step away from the case or step away from the the investigation. So that people have full confidence and given the stakes involved here and how much people are watching. And and how long it's been going on the things he said are going to cause people to have a question about what he does if he decides to restrict the investigation someone, by the way, the other thing that seems odd and wrong about the statement, you read from that op Ed by Mr. Whittaker is he doesn't know the basis on which the mother investigation may have been looking at the finances of the president, right? The the appointment letter by rod Rosenstein, makes very clear that the scope of the investigation was supposed to be relating to the campaign and possible collusion, but then also says and also any matters that arise from this investigation. So for example, if there were things that happened in the course of the mother investigation that brought to light other kinds of crimes that were taking place in came to their information and came to their knowledge and attention directly because of the investigation that's covered me in the scope of what of it rose. And Stein said so he was speaking a little bit out of school when he said those things I if Whitaker comes in and decides to limit the mole investigation one way, or the other would we ever know? I think in modern America and given the subpoena power that has just been handed to the House Democrats. I think we will know we may not know in real time. But we will know eventually, yes, the president the president did make the argument today that if he wanted mother fire he would've fired him already. Yeah. But look the president is a little more shrewd that people give them credit for. He does some things out in the open to make it seem like he's got nothing to hide, but they also may be evidence of criminal conduct or abusive power and house may consider that at some point. So just because the president has has not fired someone yet doesn't mean he won't do it in the future. And doesn't mean he doesn't want to minimize the damage to him in a political backlash to him. Look, he was very smart in some ways, depending on your perspective on how he dealt with Jeff Sessions. He could have said, look, you know, if I want to Jeff Sessions, I could've done it. But he waited he waited what he waited till hours after the midterm elections. So it wouldn't screw up his political chances in various races around the country. So I imagine some some similar kind of you know, strategizing is gone. On in his head with respect to molars. Well, it is very clear he wants to close up shop and stop and from his perspective. The question is always what's the best way to do it with the least amount of fallout. All right. Pre Berrara a man who knows about being fired by President Trump. Thanks so much appreciated Republican on the Senate Judiciary committee just weighed in on whether the new acting attorney general needs to recuse himself. What did he or she.

"Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire. And we're back with the major breaking news. President Trump fired attorney general Jeff Sessions going from Trump loyalist to embattled attorney general after sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation. Now, the ex attorney general in his place at least temporarily is Matthew Whitaker. Let's go to CNN's Evan Perez and Shimon Peres for more on that. What can you tell us about the now acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker, Jake? You know, he's been a skeptic of the investigation. He is written an op-ed for CNN dot com in which he talked about his thoughts that that Muller had gone too far in the investigation and needed to be hemmed in and here who was discussing on Don lemon show just last year a away that a future acting attorney general could come in unlimit what Muller was doing take a listen to what he had the fake. You can see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced it with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn't fire Bob Muller. But he just reduces the budget so low that his his investigation grinds to almost an hall. Jake, obviously now, this is a big thing for wicker whipper to deal with certainly the Justice Department's ethics officials are going to have a say as to whether or not they believe this constitutes an appearance of conflict. And whether it means that Matthew Whitaker needs to recuse himself from this investigation. Obviously, this is something that is simply a vice that they would get from from people at the Justice doesn't necessarily have to follow it, Jake. And she moaned we saw Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, and incoming likely speaker Nancy Pelosi call on Whittaker to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation. I don't imagine that's going to happen. But is there any indication that it's even being considered? No there isn't and really, you know, his opinions of where this investigation was certainly when he was on CNN, and when he wrote the op-ed he was in a very different place when he gave that opinion. We don't think that he's been briefed on any aspects of this investigation. It will be now his job to give brief by Robert Muller and his team, certainly. Special counsel team on where things stand and the other thing, Jake, I think that's important to keep in mind. Right. Rod Rosenstein was overseeing the investigation would give Robert Muller. Certain permission Muller would have to go. Tim say, hey, I want to subpoena this one I want to do this isn't a grand jury. And then the big question is remember is whether or not if the president has refused to answer questions by the special counsel team would Robert Muller and his team subpoena. The president that now ultimately lies with Whittaker. He would have to tell the special counsel can go ahead since the president is refusing to answer your questions, you can go ahead and subpoena him. That's obviously unlikely to happen now. And that is where I think issues can come up in this investigation. Because this is the guy now that could tell Robert Muller, you know, you need to speed this up. You can't do this. You can't do that. Let's go. Let's go. We're done here that could happen in this case. And you know, one other point I wanted to make Jake is that we know certainly evident I and from people we've talked to that there are there were contingency plans in place. For something. Like this. The Justice department has been prepared for this. And certainly most importantly is the FBI were all of this evidence lives all of this intelligence lives. Where all the witnesses live all of that information. You can be rest assured. I think the public needs to know this is that that is going to be preserved by people at the FBI. Evan your sources signal the possible end to the Muller investigation after the midterms. What could end in the investigation under Whitaker mean? Right. I think a lot of people are focusing on whether Whitaker might try to end the investigation and all indications J gar that the probe is coming to a close probably perhaps as soon as the end of the year early next year. But what happens to brought Muller's report is now in the hands of Matt Whitaker, whether any of it becomes public, whether it even the report goes to congress all of that now lies in the hands of Matt Whitaker..

"Your fine until you are found guilty and. If you appeal your case you still don't pay your fine you appeal And then you if you. Lose your peel you you you, pay so you don't you plan. On appealing Then you for for good reason and I guess if you have, an attorney that thinks you have good, reason and you still you appeal the case you Eventually at the end of, the day when you do you lose your, appeal you pay your fine all. Right so you're listening to ask an attorney, if you have a legal question something you a worried about or concerned about. If I can help you will if I don't know the answer to question then we try to find you, a resource or another way to. Help you I've had multiple attorney guests over the years and asking attorney and most of those volunteer to answer your, questions Free I mean if I. Can find on know your answer and they practice in an area like if they have a criminal law attorney Who comes on the show once in a, while that does traffic cases and. If if, Conrad there wanted to send me an Email with this question and asked me, to forty two Mike criminal-law tornadoes traffic cases And I would. Do so then he, would he would give? You maybe a different slant on the, on the question but on lines are open right now so. It'd be more than glad to help you. With your legal question maybe something's bothering you you know what. Happens a lotta times I get calls on particularly at. The office of people coming in to see me they have a problem with the state administration probate has been. Started trust administration's than started the not gonna they're not getting what they think they are entitled to they think. The trustee or the personal Representative is hiding money or taking big of a fee in somehow nother they feel, slighted and what they're getting So I get questions on that at the end of. The day on a case like that The whoever's in charge of the estate the personal Representative, appointed by, the court threw a probate or the successor trustee of a trust who's trying to you know. Pay the bills and do the taxes and make the distribution at, the end of the day The way it usually works is that they present an accounting Of all the money they. Received all the bills they paid and what's left. In hell the money's going to be divided to the heirs That's a pretty. Typical way to open and close in a state So they need your acceptance on this before they need the acceptance. On this before, they can close the. Estate and distribute the checks so. For example there five inefficiencies. In I'm involved in closing you state I send everyone and accounting And I send them a. Copy of their proposed check And once I get all five of those back I then released the checks Because you know what, happened if I. Send out I get four those back in four people have approved of everything and I send them their check in the one that. I'm waiting for dozens approve And even they send a letter saying well I don't approve well guess, what they were right then we're. Gonna have, to go, chase the money. From all the four people. That have we've sent two checks. To try, to get some of her back and make an adjustment so it doesn't. That never works so, learned longtime ago. You send everyone you don't release a check so everyone's approved at the distribution but hey the point is that you have to approve You have to, approve the distribution and accept and release the personal Representative of trustee before the case can be close that's the proper way to do it hey if you have a legal question, this morning we're down to less. Than twenty. Minutes left, in.

Clerk of the court go down to the clerk of the court and show them a reversal and ask for your money back. And see what happens I thought I think, it's logical that you should, get your money back if you paid you find that you did not have to pay because you were innocent of what you were charged. So go to the clerk of the court did, you, paid the money to and. Ask for a refund and Conrad that's that's the most I, can do to help you.

"Because of the Mueller investigation when Trump's personal attorney or one of his personal attorneys, one Michael Cohen had his office rated in April of this year into two thousand eighteen and the FBI sees all sorts of documents looking for evidence of Bank fraud. It came back that it was part of the Mueller investigation, and Trump starts tweeting about how attorney client privilege is dead. And the attorney that was quoted in this article said, no, it's not dead at all. This is very typical. What's going on is there's a judge that has in the Coen cases in pointed what they call eight team. One of the more unfortunate unfortunately named teams and what they do. This is a third party what they call an arm's length group of qualified people. So they're not involved with with anyone in this investigation, and they go through all the evidence gathered and say, what's pertinent to the case, what's not pertinent, and here's the pertinent stuff. It's not like we're just trying to release everything ever said between these two men right there, and they, they are. They take all the stuff they saw that didn't relate to the case to their grave. So it is a form an extension of attorney client privilege yet. And especially in the in the Coen case this this attorney goes on to say, because Cohen was performing little to no actual legal work for Trump, not much of what was seized in the raid would be protected anyway. Gotcha. So that's what this attorney says. That's his expert opinion. So catchy. See like one member of the taint team at the bar being like Snowden means. Terek. Could say it's really important vital. Oh, that's good stuff. So we should talk about another famous recent case of attorney client privilege or attorney client privilege being violated actually with the Jodi Arias case. Yeah, I don't know a whole lot about this one except that she murdered someone, right? Yes, in cold blood from what I read. Most recently, one of the alternate jurors believes that she killed her ex boyfriend because he was breaking up with her and she wanted to be the last person he had sex with or the only person you had sex with her. The last one of the two went off the rails stabbed him like twenty eight to twenty nine times cut his throat shot him in the head and just left him for dead and ran off to California. And it was caught within like a week or so of his body being discovered. So she, she bounded a defense that he was a pedophile that he abused her and that he was in the. Act of physically abusing her when she fought back bright snapped and killed him. Apparently, that was all just completely made up that he wasn't a pedophile. He was an abuser and he was just trying to break up with her. That's the way it stands now and she was convicted of, I think, premeditated murder. Initially sentenced to death. Mistrial was declared, and she ended up with life without the possibility of parole. So that's where it stands now. Yeah, she publicly criticized her public defender guy named Kirk Nurmi and over the years, Kirk kind of put up with it and then was diagnosed with cancer and said to hell with it, I'm writing a tell all book. Is that why? That's what he says. He says that he was he headed a bit of an opinion reversal of his life in that cancer diagnosis and said, I might be dead. I can't let her be the only person telling the Cy. The side of the story. Yeah, because he saying like a canary in this book. Oh, yeah, man. He, he revealed stuff that didn't come out at trial. He's he gave his own personal assessment of her guilt that she was definitely guilty talked about how her mother lying on the stand for her was laughable just all sorts of stuff just ripped apart. They're attorney client privilege. And so as a result, she's suing him big time. So that's still in the middle of, I mean, this hasn't been decided right, not as far as I know. I think the article I read was from two thousand eighteen, so I don't think it's been decided yet. I think he and he's defending himself saying, no, when she gave public interviews and talked about our private attorney client conversation, she revoked privilege, she privilege in doing so and so I'm free to tell anybody anything about it. So the California bar, the Zona bar, I think disbarred him. He agreed to disbar minute without admitting misconduct, and now he's like a life coach professional coach for. Lawyers. Interesting. Yeah, it is very interesting. The whole thing super interesting or cases just gut wrenching. Yeah. And the the, this, this new piece of it, he basically hates her. Yeah, hates her. He says that he was forced into the smear campaign as a defense that he didn't want to have anything. He just hates her guts. And even her defense team said that that he's developed some bizarre hatred of her. And he, he said, in this quote, in this Reuters article that he was he, he was standing up to years of abuse from her. So it's like a deep, seated hatred one way or another. They ruined each other's lives. I think she blames him for botching her defense, right? He blames her apparently for a whole whole sleigh to stuff so. So this'll probably be another precedent setter, I would guess so, but it's it's a civil case. So yeah, it could still set precedent. But yeah, the fact that he was. Disbarred. That doesn't bode well for him, but I have the feeling he's like, I'm dying of cancer. So what of right? Yeah, screw it. So that's the Turney client privilege. I don't think we missed anything. Did we? I don't think so. They're probably a little nitpicky things here and there it is. There are some definitely some gray areas, but it's been shaped in reformed over the years. I imagine will continue to be someone, hey, a one more thing I want to say is I read this is kinda apropos, but not really. I read an article probably about six months ago. Maybe a little longer. It was by a lawyer. You know how like lawyers will right? Like blog posts or articles for like their clients is on general stuff. This one lawyer wrote one about how if you ever talk to the FBI without a lawyer, you are in idiot. Well, sure any put it like that. But no, he, he makes us really great case for why most people, especially innocent people would would think I don't need a lawyer. And he said, every. Everyone needs a lawyer when they're talking to the FBI and he laid out this really exquisite case multiple point case, why to where by the end of it, you're like, oh yeah, you need a lawyer. If you're talking to the FBI it's pretty pretty amazing stuff. He's like, you're not qualified to talk to the FBI. A lawyer can make you qualified. You can't go in there and expect to be qualified. It was really fascinating. I remember who wrote it, but I think if you search something like if you don't have a lawyer and speak to the FBI you're in idiot. Something along those lines is fascinating. Just call one eight hundred fed protect. Josh Apache through for the people. You got anything else? Nope. Okay. Well, if you want to know more about attorney client privilege, you can type that word in the search part, how stuff works. And since I said privilege, it's time for listeners. I do have one more thing to say without getting too much on a soapbox. Like I hope people take the time to understand something like attorney client privilege, because when the president is tweeting out things in all explication points like attorney, client privilege is dead. I think a lot of people believe that to be true. Yeah. When they don't even really understand the the true legal sense of what this means, you know? Yeah, I totally agree with you, man. It's just like it's misinformation that people think like a tweet is means. Well, that's a fact. You know, it's not. It's a tweet. Something typed out on a phone. Like do better people fat fingers sometimes. All right. So moving on, I'm gonna call this mercury. Bob cat. Yeah. So this guy's been listening for about a year, and I just listened to the Ford Pinto deathtrap episode to put this time line into context. I was born in nineteen ninety three. This is what makes his story. Perfect. If he asked me when I was a kid, my family had a powder, blue mercury, bobcat, sister Carter the Pinto said my dad's sold the car and bought it back eight years later just before my sixteenth birthday and trove this car for two years in high school, eventually selling it to buy Bickel compatible with highway travel is a Bob. Cat could not top ninety kilometers per hour, which is what twenty miles an hour Hannity been now, something like that. Well, I knew the Pinto is generally regarded as unsafe somehow, did not know the extent of the carnage to listening to the episode that you guys did after listening. It can't believe my parents ever allowed me to get behind the wheel of this car, although mine was seventy eight. So maybe that time they had faith and the upgraded flaming death bolts. It's been about seven years and this dude. He was born in ninety three. He was driving this old car around well after its prime. Yeah, he would have been driving it in the two. Thousands. That's great. Yeah, was like me. I had a sixty eight beetle when I was in the eighties and everyone just thought I was weird with the ankle burner. Yep. Yeah. It's been about seven years since let the cargo. I'm now twenty four my friends and I missed the car so much. I frequently search the Canadian version of Craigslist called Kiji hoping to buy it back. It's so it's made up a love this guy. What. She just said some code word that we just said on air. The cat never went up in flames, but it did burn. We did burn it up. If you times I hear you man. And this is what you mean. This is Owen from Nova Scotia and I think that's pretty great in I hope you get to buy that car back dude. Yeah, good luck in your quest. Owen anybody out there. That's why is k land. If you know where Owens Bob cat is helped them out. Let us know. We'll connect you same with my sixty eight beetle. Oh, that'd be something I'd like to buy that thing back. Well, if you guys know the VIN number to shout it out. You know, Owen k. Agreed.

If your fans of two dope queens abroad city, you're gonna love couples therapy. They release episodes once a week on Tuesdays, you can find the show on apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. All right, Chuck. So you have a relationship with your attorney. Your attorney is like ten years old. At the time you hire him and you're seventy, so you pass on before your lawyer. Well, it turns out that something comes up later on and somebody wants info from your lawyer, private info that you gave them. Your lawyer says no way Jose. This is covered by attorney client privilege. That is true. Yeah, because that happened very famously with Vincent Foster who is most people know was a big. He worked with the Clintons in Arkansas. He's an attorney. He was one of their close attorneys, personal attorneys, I think, yeah. So he ended up killing himself in if you if you have on your tinfoil hat, or if you go to at least competes conspiracy websites than the new firmly believe that Bill and Hillary Clinton murdered this man with their bare hand with their hands. If you are reasonable human, you know that he fell into clinical depression and every single investigator in investigative unit. And there were quite a few, including one Kenneth Starr went out and said, yes, he definitely committed suicide. All the evidence was there. So that's a spectrum you could. You could be somewhere on that spectrum between those two beliefs. What between thinking, he killed himself and was murdered. Yeah. So he was obviously involved in the infamous whitewater real estate deal. And when Kenneth Starr was investigating this stuff, he tried to get his hands on notes created by Foster's lawyer, and the lawyer said no attorney client privilege, even though this man is dead and it went all the way to the supreme court, and they ruled six to three that it must be honored even after the grave. Yeah, I was really surprised that that was as recent as it was. I thought that that would have been a real old case that came up long ago, but yeah, from the nineties. I agree. So that one was established in. Well, the nineties, I don't see when the actual case or when the supreme court ruled on it, but that was that was one thing that was tested in court. There's another one that had to do with like employees giving testimony for their company for a long time. It was if you hired if you a director level or a an executive level person in a company and you were talking to corporate council, whatever communication was being made was protected, but then kisses started come up. Like what if somebody from accounting was talking to corporate counsel about that case, like this is that protected and for a long time, there was this test called the control group test. Yeah, properly, which was basically just are you one of the people who is in a position to take the advice of legal counsel in either run with it or decide not to do with it. Are you like pretty high up in the company? And if you weren't than that speech wasn't protected, but then over time they decided that no one of the reasons why we have this privilege is that we want lawyers to be fully briefed on the facts of the case so that they can figure out the best defense or the best legal route to resolving this thing. And if they're not fully informed, then we're kind of hamstringing our attorneys. So we want them to know everything and they won't know everything unless people feel comfortable telling them everything. Hence the attorney client privilege. Well, they said that extends to employees as well because employees sometimes have information that members of that control group won't have. And as long as they're talking about something that directly reflects their job and the case at hand to that council, that would be considered protected by the by the attorney client privilege. Yeah, that was the UpJohn ruling, I believe yet. And just this year, it's been making a lot of headlines. Because of the Mueller investigation when Trump's personal attorney or one of his personal attorneys, one Michael Cohen had his office rated in April of this year into two thousand eighteen and the FBI sees all sorts of documents looking for evidence of Bank fraud.

"And we are back now with massachusetts attorney general maura healey i've seen so many glossy magazines spreads about you know the state agee's and the trump resistance and you know what the the various attorney generals in the in the states are doing and i wonder if that framing has come back to hurt you in some fashion you know the notion that you are like in some star wars episode where you're the resistance and they're the bad guys that i i know you're careful enough i mean i've i've seen your work and i've heard you speak to try to thread the needle between kind of calling the trump administration and it's justice department and some of these initiatives what they in fact are but also not being a resistance lawyer i'm trying to i guess i'm asking you know partly in in in my own interest is a journalist because i think we're trying to figure this out but what where is the line between calling out essential troops saying you know this is wrong this is immoral and i'm trying to be a lawyer and affect bound system in a pretty small c conservative system and it doesn't help when people are tagging me as part of the resistance yep well i wanna be clear i think what this is about is is upholding the rule of law and enforcing laws that are out there to protect people's rights you know i have to admit there are some days where i wake up and i feel like i am in an alternate universe given some of what we've seen in terms of actions taken but i'm very grounded in what what my job is in what we need to do and i am not about resisting for the sake of resistance the reason that we sue trump on the contraception rule is because ensuring that women have access to the reproductive health care that they need is a civil rights issue at an economic imperative the reason that we see the trump administration over their attempts to rollback environmental regulations is because we have an obligation to combat climate change and those actions undermine our clean energy economy and investments.

"Yeah in my lifetime one of the things that was always among the headline grabbing activities of the state's attorney attorney general was fighting organized crime and i'm wondering is organized crime pretty much dead in new york now is the mafia gone well no there there's still organized crime we have an organized crime task force that works with mostly with smaller jurisdictions where they don't have the resources to deal with it there are a lot of different it's much more diffuse than it was you don't have the old style five families controlling everything going on anymore but you have a lot of gangs and multiethnic gangs different different you know the issues that we deal with now or things like drug trafficking and gun trafficking we've done more work on issues related to guns in the offices ever done in the past yeah they're still gang activity it's not like the old godfather yeah not not i understand i mean an obvious subject to talk about in a city like new york but i was told there's a kind of an embargo on this for you about talking about the me too you'd prefer not to talk about that subject correct we have an investigation into the weinstein company's inter involved with a variety of matters related to that so of can't touch on that i mean look the movement is extraordinary i think it's changing the conversation it is a part of what i see is this moment of social transformation and of the emergence of new political movement but it's you know that's a whole other podcast do you think that the announcement by cynthia nixon that she's going to run in many many people feel that a lot of women are coming to the fork because this is the time that there's always been a relatively low percentage of people running for office who are women comparatively speaking it's improved over the years but people really feel that now.

"Making the position that after divorce you may be don't want to have your spouse as beneficiary anymore and so that is kind of the petitioners take the respondent though attorney for the y is arguing kind of several different positions one they are kind of pressing the argument that any law that impairs a existing contract be at a public contract private contract or anything else but impairs contract in the slightest implicates the contract clause the courts current doctrine requires kind of substantial impairments of of contracts and i think the responded is kind of arguing for like a broader position but the respondent was also pushing back on the notion that the children's attorneys were children's attorney was arguing that the idea that the statue captures people's default preferences will why would you think that you know this contract was entered into before the statute even existed how that person you know have the idea in mind about like who's going to be the intended beneficiary if the statute wasn't on the books at the same time and the whole point of the life insurance policy is you are getting the policies of the money goes to someone right somebody wanna give the money to someone you wanna care about and so like the beneficiary of that policy is a really important part of the contract and so they also cite the notion that this is an important part of the contract at all and it's interesting because we should be clear at i don't think anybody's agrees that on a going forward basis.
