REP. GREGG HARPER, R-MISS. WITNESSES: ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER 13:27:34 FURTHER, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS FOUGHT TIRELESSLY TO COMBAT 13:27:37 TERRORISM. THE ATTEMPTED CHRISTMAS DAY 13:27:39 BOMBING ON A NORTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT AND THE FBI'S 13:27:44 INTERCEPTION OF A RECENT PLAN TO ATTACK THE NEW YORK SUBWAY 13:27:48 SYSTEM REMINDS US OF THE CONSTANT STRUGGLE AGAINST THOSE 13:27:52 WHO WISH TO HARM AMERICANS. IN THAT REGARD, I'M EAGER TO 13:27:57 HEAR WHAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT MAY PROPOSE IN THE WAY OF 13:28:02 LEGISLATIVE CHANGES REGARDING THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION TO 13:28:06 THE MIRANDA WARNINGS. I, BEING A STAUNCH ADVOCATE FOR 13:28:15 THE PRESERVATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, I'LL BE 13:28:19 LOOKING CAREFULLY AT THAT. IN ADDITION, I WANT TO THANK YOU 13:28:22 FOR REVITALIZING THE ANTI-TRUST DIVISION. 13:28:25 YOU HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THAT THE ANTI-TRUST LAWS ARE GOING TO BE 13:28:29 ENFORCED AND THIS MEANS IMPROVED COMPETITION AND REAL PRICE 13:28:33 PROTECTION FOR CONSUMERS. AS CHAIR OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON 13:28:37 COURTS AND COMPETITION POLICY I'M GRATEFUL FOR YOUR FOCUS ON 13:28:41 ANTI-TRUST ISSUES. GENERAL HOLDER, I LOOK FORWARD 13:28:44 TO HEARING YOUR TESTIMONY TODAY. I APPRECIATE THE JUSTICE 13:28:47 DEPARTMENT'S EFFORTS IN PROTECTING THE SAFETY AND 13:28:51 CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND RESOURCES OF THE AMERICAN 13:28:54 PEOPLE. I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY 13:28:58 TIME. DARRYL ISA, RANKING MEMBER ON 13:29:01 THE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE AND THE PERSON WHO MAY HOLD MORE 13:29:09 COPYRIGHTS THAN ANYBODY ON THIS COMMITTEE EXCEPT PERHAPS OUR 13:29:13 NEWEST MEMBER JARED POLIS. THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. 13:29:18 WELCOME. WE NOW HAVE TWO NONLAWYERS WHO 13:29:20 ARE, IN FACT, HOLDERS OF THE ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR AWARD. 13:29:24 SO I WOULD SAY THAT WE DEFINITELY -- 13:29:26 WE'LL LEAVE THE RECORDED PORTION OF TODAY'S HOUSE 13:29:29 JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HEARING AS THE COMMITTEE IS RESUMING LIVE 13:29:32 WE TAKE YOU BACK TO CAPITOL HILL ON C-SPAN 3. 13:29:37 BEFORE I POSE A MOTION, LET ME SUGGEST THAT BY THE OPENING 13:29:43 STATEMENTS OF THE MEMBERS YOU HAVE HEARD A NUMBER OF CONCERNS 13:29:48 AND I WOULD ONLY ADD TO THOSE CONCERNS AND NOT KNOWING ALL IN 13:29:52 TOTALITY IS A VERY SERIOUS MATTER OF MERGERS AND IN 13:29:55 PARTICULAR THE MERGER BETWEEN CONTINENTAL AND UNITED. 13:29:59 I KNOW WE WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO RAISE A VERY 13:30:02 IMPORTANT QUESTION EITHER TODAY OR PROSPECTIVELY. 13:30:07 SO WE ARE AT THE POINT OF QUESTIONS, AS I INDICATED. 13:30:10 BUT I WOULD LIKE TO INDICATE TO YOU THAT OUR CHAIRMAN WHO HAS 13:30:16 PRESIDED OVER THIS COMMITTEE WITH EXCELLENCE AND GREAT 13:30:22 LEADERSHIP AND PRESIDED EARLIER TODAY WAS APPROACHED BY MEMBERS 13:30:28 ON THE FLOOR HAVING A NUMBER OF CONFLICTS AND FLIGHTS TO CATCH 13:30:35 ON IMPORTANT DISTRICT BUSINESS BECAUSE OF HIS LEADERSHIP. 13:30:44 IF WE COULD ADJOURN THE HEARING AND SCHEDULE IT AT A LATER DATE. 13:30:49 THEREFORE, I AM ASKING UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO ADJOURN THE HEARING 13:30:53 AT THIS TIME. MADAME CHAIRMAN I OBJECT. 13:30:56 I WOULD LIKE TO BE RECOGNIZED TO EXPLAIN. 13:30:59 THE RANKING MEMBER OBJECTS. I WILL YIELD TO HIM FOR HIS 13:31:04 EXPLANATION. THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIRMAN. 13:31:08 THE CHAIRMAN AND I HAD A DISCUSSION ABOUT WHETHER WE 13:31:11 SHOULD ADJOURN NOW BECAUSE WE ARE FINISHED WITH VOTES FOR THE 13:31:14 DAY AND PERHAPS RETURN NEXT WEEK OR THE WEEK AFTER WE GET BACK 13:31:17 FROM THE MEMORIAL DAY BREAK. HAD THE A.G. BEEN ABLE TO ASSURE 13:31:21 US THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE US A TIME AND A DATE TO HAVE THE 13:31:27 HEARING AND CONTINUE THIS HEARING AND ASK QUESTIONS I 13:31:31 CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE AGREED TO DO THAT. 13:31:32 I UNDERSTAND THE A.G.'S TRAVEL SCHEDULE. 13:31:35 I CAN APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT HE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GIVE US 13:31:38 A HARD DATE. BUT I AM UNCOMFORTABLE 13:31:42 ADJOURNING THIS OVERSIGHT HEARING WITHOUT THAT TIME AND 13:31:46 DATE SPECIFIC. THAT'S WHY I FEEL THAT WE SHOULD 13:31:49 GO FORWARD AND WE HAVE A CRITICAL MASS OF MEMBERS TO DO 13:31:54 SO. MADAME CHAIR, I WOULD YIELD TO 13:31:56 THE A.G. WHO LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GETTING READY TO RESPOND AS 13:32:01 WELL. THANK YOU. 13:32:05 I'M NOT SURE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING YIELDED TO 13:32:09 AT THIS POINT. ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BEING 13:32:11 YIELDED TO AT THIS POINT? OTHERWISE I HAVE A MEMBER THAT I 13:32:14 WILL BE CALLING ON. I'M READY TO PROCEED. 13:32:21 LET ME -- DID YOU RAISE -- MR. SCHIFF, CALIFORNIA. 13:32:28 THANK YOU. I WAS GOING TO RESPOND TO MY 13:32:32 COLLEAGUE FROM TEXAS. I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERN HE HAS. 13:32:37 ON THE OTHER HAND, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL DEMONSTRATED NO 13:32:40 RELUCTANCE TO COME BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. 13:32:42 NOT ONLY THIS COMMITTEE BUT OTHERS. 13:32:44 I'M CONFIDENT HE WOULD RETURN AT THE FIRST AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY. 13:32:49 IF THAT'S THE CASE IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE FULL 13:32:54 REPRESENTATION. I KNOW A LOT OF MEMBERS WOULD 13:32:58 PARTICIPATE IN THE HEARING AND THEY WILL LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY 13:33:01 IF WE GO FORWARD WITHOUT THEM. WOULD THE GENTLEMAN YIELD? 13:33:06 I WOULD BE GLAD TO. THERE ARE SEVERAL RESPONSES. 13:33:09 FIRST IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL INDICATED A 13:33:12 WILLINGNESS TO STAY AND ANSWER QUESTIONS FOR AS LONG AS THEY 13:33:16 MIGHT BE. SECOND WILL HAVE ALL, ALL 13:33:18 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WERE ON NOTICE THAT WE EXPECTED TO BE IN 13:33:21 SESSION UNTIL AT LEAST 3:00 OR 4:00 THIS AFTERNOON. 13:33:24 THE FACT THAT THE VOTES ENDED EARLIER WERE NOT ANTICIPATED. 13:33:28 SO MEMBERS HAVE NOT HAD TO CHANGE ANY PLANS IF TWHANTED TO 13:33:35 PARTICIPATE IN THIS HEARING. THARDLY, AS I SAID, TO REPEAT 13:33:39 MYSELF, HAD THE A.G. BEEN WILLING TO COMMIT TO A DATE 13:33:42 SOMETIME IN THE NEXT THREE WEEKS I WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY GONE 13:33:46 AHEAD WITH THE SUGGESTION THAT WE ADJOURN BUT WITHOUT THE 13:33:50 COMMITMENT FROM THE A.G. AND DESPITE THE ASSURANCE OF THE 13:33:53 GENTLEMAN FROM CALIFORNIA HE SEEMS MORE CONFIDENT IN THE 13:33:56 APPEARANCE OF THE A.G. IN THE COMING WEEKS THAN THE A.G. 13:34:00 HIMSELF OR THE A.G. WOULD HAVE GIVEN A COMMITMENT TO A SPECIFIC 13:34:03 TIME AND DATE. ABSENT THAT IT'S BEST THAT WE 13:34:08 PROCEED. MADAME CHAIR, THAT BEING 13:34:12 SAID, WE'LL GO FORWARD. THANK YOU. 13:34:17 THE OBJECTION BEING HEARD ON UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO ADJOURN AND 13:34:25 THE OBJECTION BEING RAISED, THE MEETING WILL NOW PROCEED. 13:34:31 AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO YIELD FIVE MINUTES FOR HIS 13:34:35 QUESTIONING TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM VIRGINIA, THE CHAIRMAN OF 13:34:39 THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON CRIME, MR. SCOTT. 13:34:42 THANK YOU. MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE LAST 13:34:46 TIME YOU WERE HERE I ASKED YOU WHETHER OR NOT IF SOMEONE HAD 13:34:50 BEEN TORTURED TO DEATH WHETHER OR NOT A CRIME ALMOST CERTAINLY 13:34:56 WOULD HAVE BEEN COMMITTED AND YOU ANSWERED IN THE POSITIVE. 13:34:58 MY QUESTION IS WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATION FOR 13:35:01 TORTURE IF SOMEONE DIES AND THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS IF 13:35:04 SOMEONE DOES NOT DIE? I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS AND IF 13:35:08 YOU WOULD PREFER TO RESPOND IN WRITING, THAT WOULD BE FINE. 13:35:14 I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND IN WRITING TO AT LEAST THE SECOND 13:35:17 PART OF THE QUESTION. WITH REGARD TO THE FIRST PART 13:35:19 THERE IS NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS WHERE DEATH RESULTS. 13:35:21 THANK YOU. THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF 13:35:26 CONTROVERSY ON MIRANDA RIGHTS. THE LAST CASE WAS RULED ON A 13:35:32 CONSTITUTIONAL BASIS, NOT STATUTORY INTERPRETATION. 13:35:35 IF WE TRY TO CHANGE THE STATUTE MIGHT WE NOT CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS 13:35:39 THAN WE SOLVE? NOBODY WOULD KNOW UNTIL THAT HIT 13:35:44 IT IS SUPREME COURT WHETHER WHAT WE DID WAS CONSTITUTIONAL OR 13:35:47 NOT. HOW WOULD THAT AFFECT THE 13:35:49 PRACTICE ON THE GROUND IF A POLICE OFFICER HAS TO SIT UP AND 13:35:52 WONDER, WELL, I HAVE ALL THESE EXCEPTIONS. 13:35:54 I MAY HAVE TO GIVE A MIRANDA WARNING, MAYBE NOT. 13:35:58 MAYBE THEY'RE A CITIZEN, A TERRORIST. 13:36:03 MIGHT YOU END UP MESSING UP CASES WHERE MIRANDA TURNED OUT 13:36:08 TO BE REQUIRED? WOULD WE MAKE MATTERS WORSE BY 13:36:12 CHANGING ANYTHING? I THINK IT'S OUR VIEW THAT 13:36:15 THE USE OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION AND I WANT TO MAKE IT 13:36:19 CLEAR THAT WE ARE FOCUSED ON THE POTENTIAL MODERNIZING, 13:36:25 CLARIFYING OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION. 13:36:28 NOT THE MIRANDA RULE ITSELF BUT TO COME UP WITH A WAY IN WHICH 13:36:32 WE GIVE TO AGENTS, POLICE OFFICERS, GREATER CLARITY AS TO 13:36:35 HOW THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION CAN BE USED. 13:36:38 THE EXCEPTION WAS CRAFTED BACK IN THE 1980s IN CONNECTION WITH 13:36:43 CASE QUARRELS THAT INVOLVED A POLICE OFFICER ASKING A PERSON 13:36:48 W WHERE IS THE GUN? 13:36:50 WE FIND OURSELVES IN 2010 DEALING WITH COMPLICATED 13:36:53 TERRORISM MATTERS. THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT HAVE 13:36:57 OCCUPIED MUCH OF MY TIME. WITH REGARD TO ONLY 13:37:00 TERRORISM-RELATED MATTERS, NOT IN ANY OTHER WAY, JUST TERRORISM 13:37:04 CASES THAT MODERNIZING, CLARIFYING, MAKING MORE FLEXIBLE 13:37:07 THE USE OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION WOULD BE SOMETHING -- 13:37:11 BUT THE POINT THE INTERROGATION STARTS THE POLICE 13:37:14 OFFICER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TELL WHETHER IT'S TERRORISM OR NOT 13:37:17 AND THINKING WRONGLY THAT IT IS TERRORISM YOU CAN MESS UP AN 13:37:22 OTHERWISE FAIRLY GOOD CASE. WE'LL LOOK TO SEE WHAT YOU COME 13:37:26 UP WITH. THE BUREAU OF PRISONS IS UNDER 13:37:29 YOUR JURISDICTION. IS THAT CORRECT? 13:37:32 THAT'S CORRECT. FEDERAL PRISON INDUSTRIES IS 13:37:34 AN IMPORTANT PROGRAM. DO YOU HAVE ANY STATEMENT ON HOW 13:37:38 WE CAN MAKE THE PROGRAM STRONGER AND ANY SUPPORT YOU WANT TO GIVE 13:37:43 TO THE PROGRAM FOR WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT? 13:37:46 IT'S A CRITICAL PART, I THINK, OF AN EFFORT TO MAKE 13:37:50 PRISONS MORE THAN PLACES THAT WAREHOUSE PEOPLE TO GIVE PEOPLE 13:37:55 AN OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN SKILLS THAT MAKE THEM SUCCESSFUL UPON 13:37:58 LEAVING PRISON. I THINK WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO 13:38:00 FOCUS ON IS THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO GO INTO 13:38:03 PRISON COME OUT AT SOME POINT. TO THE EXTENT THAT WE CAN 13:38:07 PROVIDE REHAB TODAY TIF SERVICES TO THEM THROUGH THE VOCATIONAL 13:38:12 OPPORTUNITY THAT IS THE PRISON PROGRAMS PROVIDE, I THINK THOSE 13:38:15 SHOULD BE SUPPORTED. I'M A BIG SUPPORTER OF THE 13:38:19 PROGRAM. THANK YOU. 13:38:20 I MENTIONED IN MY OPENING REMARKS THE OFFICE OF LEGAL 13:38:25 COUNSEL MEMORANDUM THAT ESSENTIALLY SUGGESTED THAT 13:38:28 RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT OF 1993 PROVIDES A VIRTUAL 13:38:34 BLANKET OVERRIDING STATUTORY NONDISCRIMINATION PROVISIONS. 13:38:40 HAS YOUR OFFICE REVIEWED THAT MEMORANDUM AND IF SO, COULD YOU 13:38:44 TELL US THE STATUS OF WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO WIT OR WOULD 13:38:48 YOU WANT TO GET BACK TO US IN WRITING ON THAT? 13:39:02 WELL, I WOULD LIKE TO GET BACK TO YOU IN WRITING ABOUT 13:39:04 THAT. -- A FEDERAL GRANT YOU CAN'T 13:39:18 USE THE MONEY FOR THE PEOPLE YOU HELP AND YOU CAN'T DISCRIMINATE 13:39:20 AGAINST THEM OR AGAINST THE -- SEEMS FAIRLY UNUSUAL THAT YOU 13:39:36 WOULD ALLOW DISCRIMINATION ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS. 13:39:39 DO YOU HAVE A COMMENT ON WHERE WE ARE ON RESTORING THE CIVIL 13:39:43 RIGHTS FOR EMPLOYEES THAT EXISTED FROM 1965 UNTIL 2001 OR 13:39:52 2002? I THINK THE ADMINISTRATION IS 13:39:54 COMMITTED TO PARTNERING WITH FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS IN A 13:39:57 WAY THAT'S CONSISTENT WITH THE LAW, CONSISTENT WITH OUR VALUES 13:39:59 AND CONSISTENT WITH THE WAY IN WHICH I THINK THIS 13:40:03 ADMINISTRATION HAS CONDUCTED ITSELF. 13:40:05 THE DEPARTMENT WILL CONTINUE TO EVALUATE LEGAL QUESTIONS THAT 13:40:09 ARISE WITH REGARD TO HOW WE DO THAT ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS, 13:40:15 BUT OVERALL. I THINK THE LAW APPARENTLY 13:40:18 ALLOWS DISCRIMINATION AS A POLICY.

AG ERIC HOLDER HEARING 16:00-17:00
ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER House appropriations subcommittee on commerce, justice hearing with Eric Holder. 16:00:00 UNDERSTANDS OR MAYBE THEY WERE OUT ON VACATION OR WITH THEIR 16:00:02 FAMILY, THAT'S NOT BAD, I'M NOT CRITICIZING THAT, BUT THAT WAS 16:00:05 MY POINT IS IT WAS CHRISTMAS DAY, SPUR OF THE MOMENT AND YOU 16:00:09 DO HAVE VERY GOOD PEOPLE IN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND VERY GOOD 16:00:11 PEOPLE IN THE FBI WHO HAD THEY BEEN THERE AND PERHAPS SOMEBODY 16:00:16 FROM THE FBI IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY. 16:00:19 THAT'S THE POINT I WANTED TO MAKE. 16:00:20 >> I DON'T NECESSARILY DISAGREE WITH YOU. 16:00:22 I THINK THE OPERATION ON THE 25th WAS DONE VERY WELL. 16:00:24 I THINK IT WAS DONE EVEN BETTER POST-DECEMBER 25th IN THE 16:00:28 INTERVIEW WE HAD WITH ABDULMUTALLAB BUT I THINK THERE 16:00:30 ARE THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM DECEMBER THE 25th AND WE NEED TO 16:00:34 MAKE SURE WE DO IT BETTER EVERY TIME. 16:00:36 >> SURE. SURELY, BEFORE I GET TO THE LAST 16:00:38 QUESTIONS. ON THE BIN LADEN THING THAT MY 16:00:43 COLLEAGUE ASKED, MR. CULVERSON, YOU SORT OF DISMISSED IT AND 16:00:48 BRUSHED ASIDE, KIND OF A BUMP AND RUN AND MOVE ON. 16:00:50 THE REALITY IS YOU MAY VERY WELL CATCH HIM AND HE VERY WELL MAY 16:00:56 BE ALIVE -- >> I DON'T -- 16:01:01 >> WE DON'T KNOW. WE DON'T KNOW A LOT OF THINGS. 16:01:03 SOMETIMES WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DON'T KNOW, BUT IF YOU DO CATCH 16:01:07 HIM, AND I THINK THE CONCERN IS THAT YOU MAY VERY WELL BE 16:01:10 SETTING A PRECEDENT WITH THE KHALID SHAIKH MOHAMMED CASE. 16:01:15 BEHEADING DANIEL PEARL, KILLING 3,000 PEOPLE, THE PRECEDENT THAT 16:01:19 YOU'RE SETTING THERE, THAT IF YOU SHOULD CAPTURE OSAMA BIN 16:01:23 LADEN ALIVE, YOU MAY VERY WELL BE SETTING A PRECEDENT, SO MY 16:01:27 QUESTION TO YOU IS IF YOU CATCH OSAMA BIN LADEN ALIVE, WILL IT 16:01:30 GO TO AN ARTICLE III COURT OR A MILITARY COURT? 16:01:34 >> I'M NOT TRYING TO DODGE THIS ONE. 16:01:36 I JUST DON'T THINK -- THE POSSIBILITY OF CAPTURING HIM 16:01:39 ALIVE -- >> BUT THAT'S -- 16:01:41 >> -- IS INFINITESIMAL. >> OKAY. 16:01:45 >> HE'LL BE KILLED BY US OR HE'LL BE KILLED BY HIS OWN 16:01:48 PEOPLE SO THAT HE'S NOT CAPTURED BY US, WE KNOW THAT. 16:01:51 >> ATTORNEY GENERAL, I RESPECT -- THAT WAS NOT A TRICK 16:01:55 QUESTION. SINCERELY, WHAT IF WE DO THOUGH 16:01:58 CATCH HIM ALIVE, THAT'S THE QUESTION. 16:02:00 >> AND WHAT I'M SAYING IS THAT -- AND MAYBE I WAS BEING A 16:02:04 LITTLE FLIP WITH MR. CULVERSON. >> OKAY. 16:02:09 >> READING MIRANDA RIGHTS TO HIS CORPS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE'LL 16:02:14 BE DEALING WITH. HE IS NOT GOING TO BE ALIVE. 16:02:16 >> THE QUESTION IS WHAT IF HE IS ALIVE, AND I THINK THE GENTLEMAN 16:02:19 RAISED A LEGITIMATE CASE, AND FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, WE -- OUR 16:02:24 GOVERNMENT IS SETTING A PRECEDENT WITH THE KHALID SHAIKH 16:02:28 MOHAMMED IN A CIVILIAN COURT IN NEW YORK CITY, AND I THINK 16:02:31 THAT'S THE REAL DANGER. TWO OTHER QUESTIONS I WANTED TO 16:02:34 ASK YOU. THE INTELLIGENCE REFORM AND 16:02:38 TERRORIST PREVENTION ACT OF 2004 EXPANDED TO OSI JURISDICTION 16:02:43 BEYOND NAZI-ERA CASES. WE HAD HEARINGS WHEN I WAS THE 16:02:48 CHAIRMAN OF THIS COMMITTEE. SINCE THAT CHANGE, HOW MANY 16:02:50 HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS HAVE YOU SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED OR 16:02:54 REMOVED FROM THE COUNTRY? I'M TINNIALLY SEEING, I SAW THE 16:02:57 FELLOW INTERVIEWED THE OTHER DAY FROM SOMALIA. 16:02:59 WE'RE FINDING ALL THESE BAD PEOPLE SHOWING UP IN THE 16:03:03 COUNTRY, PEOPLE INVOLVED IN A GENOCIDE IN RWANDA WHERE 16:03:06 600,000, 700,000 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED. 16:03:08 WE'RE FIND BEING, YOU KNOW, CHARLES TAYLOR'S SON, CHUCKY 16:03:13 TAYLOR. FORTUNATELY THE ADMINISTRATION 16:03:14 DID GET HIM, BUT CAN YOU TELL US, AND MAYBE THIS IS NOT THE 16:03:20 PLACE, CAN YOU COMMIT THAT YOU'RE AGGRESSIVELY LOOKING AND 16:03:23 HOW MANY HAVE YOU PROSECUTED, BUT CAN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY COME 16:03:25 BY AND GIVE ME THE REAL INFORMATION, AN INVENTORY OF ALL 16:03:29 THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN GENOCIDE AND CRIMES 16:03:32 AGAINST HUMANITY THAT ARE NOW LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES, AND 16:03:36 YOU KNOW WHERE THEY ARE, THAT YOU'RE AGGRESSIVELY GOING AFTER 16:03:40 THEM TO AT LEAST -- TO AT LEAST DEPORT THEM. 16:03:44 >> YEAH. I CAN ARRANGE A BRIEFING SO THAT 16:03:46 I CAN SHARE WITH YOU WHAT THE EXACT NUMBERS ARE BECAUSE I 16:03:48 DON'T KNOW THEM. ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE TRYING 16:03:53 TO DO. WE NEED SOME CONGRESSIONAL 16:03:56 SUPPORT FROM THEM. >> WHAT SUPPORT? 16:03:58 >> TO MERGE THE OFFICE OF SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS WITH ITS 16:04:03 COUNTERPART THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROSECUTIONS OF PEOPLE 16:04:05 LIKE CHUCKY TAYLOR, BECAUSE WE THINK IF THEY PUT THOSE TWO 16:04:08 GROUPS TOGETHER IN OUR CRIMINAL DIVISION WE CAN BE MORE 16:04:13 EFFECTIVE AT THE PEOPLE YOU'RE SPEAKING OF. 16:04:15 >> I WILL OFFER THAT AS A MOTION IN THE MARKUP AND JUST TO TELL 16:04:19 THE GENTLEMAN FROM WEST VIRGINIA, I'LL OFFER THAT AS A 16:04:21 MOTION, IF YOUR PEOPLE CAN COME UP AND GIVE ME THE LANGUAGE AND 16:04:24 I'LL SEE IF I CAN GET THAT PASSED, AND I'LL ALSO INTRODUCE 16:04:27 A BILL IN CASE THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DOESN'T, I CAN LOOK 16:04:30 FOR ANOTHER VEHICLE, TOO, BECAUSE I THINK WE HAVE AN 16:04:32 OBLIGATION TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN PERSECUTE WHO HAD HAVE 16:04:35 GONE THROUGH THIS TO HAVE THESE PEOPLE THAT THEY THEN SEE LIVING 16:04:38 IN THE UNITED STATES TO BE PROSECUTED AND DEPORTED. 16:04:41 >> AND I AGREE WITH YOU, MR. WOLF, AND TO THE EXTENT THAT 16:04:44 WE CAN WORK TOGETHER ON THAT, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. 16:04:46 >> THAT WOULD BE GOOD. A GOOD THING TO WORK TOGETHER. 16:04:50 THAT WOULD BE GOOD. THE LAST THING IS, I WANT TO GO 16:04:53 BACK TO THE PRISON RATE. THIS IS AN ISSUE I CARE DEEPLY 16:05:05 A ABOUT. 16:05:12 I THOUGHT YOU WERE READING. >> NO. 16:05:14 >> EXCUSE ME. >> I'M SORRY GO, AHEAD. 16:05:17 >> THE PRISON RAPE. MY OFFICE TALKED TO SOMEBODY WHO 16:05:22 WAS INVOLVED IN A PRISON RAPE AND CONNECTED TO THE JUSTICE 16:05:25 DEPARTMENT. WHEN SENATOR KENNEDY AND BOBBY 16:05:26 SCOTT AND I PUT THIS IN, WE WANTED THIS THING PASSED. 16:05:29 >> SURE. >> I CAN SEND YOU, AND I WILL 16:05:32 SEND YOU AND WOULD I ASK YOU ON THE RECORD IF YOU PROMISE ME 16:05:35 YOU'RE GOING TO READ THEM. >> OKAY. 16:05:37 >> SOME THE CASES OF SOME OF THESE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN 16:05:40 RAPED. SOME ARE VERY YOUNG, TOO, AND WE 16:05:45 SENT A LETTER BACK IN JULY OF THIS YEAR. 16:05:47 SENATOR KENNEDY, CONGRESSMAN SCOTT AND MYSELF. 16:05:51 WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS YOU'RE DUPLICATING EVERYTHING THE 16:05:54 COMMISSION HAS DONE. YOU'RE GOING OUT ON A CONTRACT 16:05:56 NOW TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING, AND JUST BECAUSE SOME PRISON WARDENS 16:06:00 DON'T LIKE THIS OR THE BUREAU OF PRISON MAY NOT LIKE IT, THE 16:06:04 LONGER YOU DELAY, THE MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE RAPED, 16:06:08 PERIOD, AND NOW WHAT YOU'RE TELLING US IS THAT THIS WILL NOT 16:06:12 BE IN PLACE UNTIL 2011 AND MAYBE 2012. 16:06:17 THAT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE, AND I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU DID IT. 16:06:21 I DON'T KNOW THE OPERATION OF THE DEPARTMENT. 16:06:22 THIS WAS LOOKED AT CAREFULLY, AND I THINK TO -- TO REDUCE THE 16:06:27 FUNDING FOR IT, TOO, SENDS ME A MESSAGE THAT THE JUSTICE 16:06:31 DEPARTMENT, WHOEVER IS PUT BEING THIS TOGETHER, DOESN'T REALLY 16:06:34 CARE. I WANT A COMMITMENT THAT YOU'RE 16:06:36 GOING TO EXPEDITE THIS, MOVING IT THROUGH, KNOWING THAT EACH 16:06:40 AND EVERY DAY YOU DON'T DO IT, SOMEONE IN SOME PRISON, MAYBE A 16:06:43 STATE PRISON, MAYBE A JAIL, MAYBE A FEDERAL PRISON IS GOING 16:06:46 TO BE RAPED, SO WHAT I WANT TO DO IS WE WANT TO PASS THIS 16:06:48 THING. WE WANT TO MOVE THIS THING. 16:06:49 WE WANT TO GET IT OUT AND GET IT UP AND RUNNING, AND 2011, IT 16:06:55 WILL BE A YEAR AND A HALF TO TWO YEARS LATE, SO WHAT CAN YOU TELL 16:06:59 ME THAT YOU'RE GOING TO KIND OF DO AWAY WITH THIS CONTRACTING 16:07:02 THING OUT AND DO WHAT THE COMMISSION SAYS TO DO SOMETHING 16:07:05 TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN FAST? >> WELL, IN TERMS OF JUST 16:07:08 FUNDING, AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS LOOKING AT HERE. 16:07:11 WE HAVE TOTAL FUNDING OF OVER $16 MILLION AVAILABLE TO US IN 16:07:16 2010. OUR $5 MILLION IN 2011 PLUS OUR 16:07:20 CURRENT FUNDS IS REALLY SUFFICIENT TO FINISH THE SURVEY 16:07:24 PROCESS AND TO PROVIDE IMPLEMENTATION AND HELP TO OUR 16:07:27 STATE AND LOCAL PARTNERS, SO THAT WE THINK WITH THE MONEY 16:07:29 THAT WE HAVE WE ARE CAPABLE OF DOING THE JOB THAT YOU WANT DONE 16:07:33 AND THE JOB I WANT TO HAVE -- I WANT TO HAVE DONE. 16:07:36 WE DON'T WANT TO DO THIS IN A SLIPSHOD WAY. 16:07:41 WE WANT TO EFFECT SUBSTANTIVE REAL CHANGE SO THAT THE HORRORS 16:07:46 THAT ARE TOO OFTEN VISITED UPON PEOPLE IN OUR PRISONS, THAT 16:07:50 HORROR IS ELIMINATED. I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH 16:07:54 YOU ON THAT. I MEAN, WE ARE EXACTLY ON THE 16:07:59 SAME PAGE ON THIS ONE. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I THINK 16:08:01 NEEDS TO BE DONE, NOT TOMORROW BUT YESTERDAY, AND TO THE EXTENT 16:08:07 THAT WE ARE NOT BEING AS EFFICIENT, NOT BEING AS 16:08:14 AGGRESSIVE AS WE NEED TO BE, IT'S -- IT'S GOOD FOR YOU TO, 16:08:18 YOU KNOW, BRING THAT TO MY ATTENTION, BUT I CAN TELL YOU. 16:08:21 I AM SINCERE IN MY DESIRE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THIS DONE 16:08:26 AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN. I THINK WE HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS 16:08:30 TO DO IT. I THINK THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE 16:08:32 LAID OUT WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE CHANGES THAT WE IMPLEMENT WILL 16:08:37 BE ONES THAT WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIVE IMPACT. 16:08:40 IT WILL NOT SIMPLY BE THINGS THAT YOU SEE ON PAPER AND DON'T 16:08:46 AFFECT THE LIVES OF PEOPLE IN PRISON. 16:08:48 THAT'S OUR GOAL. >> MOST MEMBERS OF THE 16:08:49 COMMISSION DON'T AGREE WITH YOU, AND I THINK YOU KNOW THE 16:08:53 CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMISSION, REGGIE WALTON, SO WITH THAT, 16:08:55 MR. CHAIRMAN, I -- I YIELD BACK. >> MR. SCHIST. 16:08:59 >> THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. I JUST WANT TO QUICKLY ADDRESS A 16:09:02 COUPLE OF THE COMMENTS THAT WERE MADE ABOUT GUANTANAMO. 16:09:09 IN ADDITION TO COLIN POWELL AND PRESIDENT BUSH ADVOCATING THE 16:09:13 CLOSURE OF GUANTANAMO, THE ASSESSMENT OF MILITARY 16:09:20 COMMANDERS WITHIN D.O.D. IS THAT CLOSING GUANTANAMO, WELL, IT'S A 16:09:25 NATIONAL SECURITY IMPERATIVE IN THE WAR AGAINST AL QAEDA. 16:09:28 THAT'S ACCORDING TO JOHN BRENNAN, THE ASSISTANT PRESIDENT 16:09:32 FOR HOMELAND SECURITY AND COUNTERTERRORISM. 16:09:34 SECRETARY GATES, ADMIRAL MULLEN AND GENERAL PETRAEUS HAVE ALL 16:09:37 STATED THAT CLOSING GUANTANAMO WILL HELP OUR TROOPS BY 16:09:40 ELIMINATING A POTENT RECRUITING TOOL. 16:09:42 MY COLLEAGUE I THINK SETS UP A STRAW MAN ARGUMENT THAT BECAUSE 16:09:46 MANY OF US, INCLUDING THE DEFENSE SECRETARY, BELIEVE THAT 16:09:49 GITMO IS A RECRUITING TOOL, THAT WE'RE SOMEHOW ARGUING THAT IF 16:09:52 YOU CLOSE GUANTANAMO IT WILL END THE WAR ON TERRORISM. 16:09:54 OF COURSE, NO ONE HAS EVER MADE THAT CLAIM, BUT I'VE YET TO HEAR 16:10:00 THE ADVOCATES OF KEEPING GUANTANAMO OPEN ACKNOWLEDGE ANY 16:10:07 MERIT TO THE -- THE PROPAGANDA TOOL IT HAS SERVED FOR AL QAEDA 16:10:13 AND THE DOWN SIDE OF KEEPING THAT OPEN. 16:10:18 I ALSO, AGAIN, IN TERMS OF THE CRITICISM REGARDING THE ARREST 16:10:24 AND MIRANDA ADVISEMENT OF ABDULMUTALLAB, I THINK THAT 16:10:29 ARGUMENT WOULD HAVE A LOT MORE POLICY WEIGHT AND A LOT LESS 16:10:32 POLITICAL OVERTONE IF THESE SAME FOLKS WHO ARE ATTACKING THIS 16:10:36 NATION NOW HAVE LEVELLED ANY CRITICISM OF ATTORNEY GENERAL 16:10:40 ASHCROFT WHEN THE SHOE BOMBER WAS ARRESTED WHICH 16:10:43 COINCIDENTALLY WAS ALSO A DECEMBER ALMOST CHRISTMAS DAY, I 16:10:46 THINK DECEMBER 21st EFFORT TO BLOW UP AN AIRCRAFT, AND HE WAS 16:10:52 ADVISED OF HIS MIRANDA RIGHTS WITHIN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES 16:10:56 AND WAS ADVISED A TOTAL OF FOUR TIMES WITHIN 48 HOURS, AND I 16:11:01 DON'T REMEMBER HEARING A PEEP OF CRITICISM OF THE BUSH JUSTICE 16:11:04 DEPARTMENT AT THAT TIME, SO, AGAIN, YOU KNOW, I THINK WE 16:11:12 OUGHT TO TRY TO KEEP THE POLITICS OUT OF THIS AND NOT BE 16:11:16 SELECTIVE IN OUR CRITICISM. LET ME TURN TO ANOTHER SUBJECT 16:11:21 THOUGH, AND THAT IS -- THAT WAS ONE RAISED BY MY COLLEAGUE, MR. 16:11:25 HONDA, AND THAT IS THE -- THE SPIRALING OF VIOLENCE IN MEXICO. 16:11:29 I HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR COUNTERPART, THE MEXICAN 16:11:34 ATTORNEY GENERAL, TWO MONTHS AGO WHO TALKED ABOUT THE MUTUALLY 16:11:39 DESTRUCTIVE TRADE BETWEEN OUR TWO COUNTRIES WITH NARCOTICS 16:11:42 FLOWING NORTH AND WEAPONS FLOWING SOUTH, AND IN PARTICULAR 16:11:46 JUST THE PREVALENCE OF AMERICAN WEAPONS BEING IMPORTED INTO 16:11:54 MEXICO, SOLD THROUGH STRAW PURCHASERS OR ACQUIRED AT GUN 16:11:58 SHOWS OR THROUGH WHATEVER MECHANISM, AND I WANT TO ASK YOU 16:12:02 HOW WE CAN DO MORE TO STEM THAT FLOW OF WEAPONS INTO MEXICO. 16:12:07 YOU KNOW, WE'RE -- WE WERE DEVASTATED TO SEE THE LOSS OF 16:12:13 OUR CONSULAR OFFICIAL AND HIS WIFE. 16:12:17 WE LOST MR. SALCITO, A COUNCIL MEMBER FROM CALIFORNIA IN SOME 16:12:21 HORRIFIC VIOLENCE, AND, OF COURSE, THOUSANDS OF MEXICAN 16:12:24 CITIZENS ARE DYING EVERY YEAR IN WHAT LOOKS INCREASINGLY LOOKS 16:12:33 LIKE WHAT COLUMBIA USED TO LOOK. I WANT TO KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY 16:12:38 LEGAL CHANGES NECESSARY TO CRACK DOWN ON THIS HIGH VOLUME OF 16:12:41 TRAFFICKING OF WEAPONS INTO MEXICO, YOU KNOW. 16:12:44 ONE DISPARITY, FOR EXAMPLE, IS YOU'RE REQUIRED TO DISCLOSE I 16:12:49 GUESS IF SOMEONE BUYS FIVE OR MORE HANDGUNS A MONTH, BUT IF 16:12:52 THEY COME AND BUY FIVE OR MORE ASSAULT WEAPONS YOU'RE NOT 16:12:56 REQUIRED TO DISCLOSE IT, AND SO YOU DON'T HAVE THOSE LAW 16:12:59 ENFORCEMENT KIND OF LEADS. AS WE SAW IN THE EX-CALIBER 16:13:04 CASE, SOME OF THE EFFORTS TO CRACK DOWN ON EVEN HIGH-VOLUME 16:13:10 SALES TO STRAW PURCHASERS ARE PROBLEMATIC, AND IN ONE OF THE 16:13:14 ISSUES, TOO, MAY BE DO WE HAVE THE RESOURCES AND THE PRIORITY 16:13:19 AMONG THE U.S. ATTORNEY'S OFFICES TO GO AFTER EVEN THE 16:13:22 STRAW PURCHASERS IN A WAY THAT WILL LET US CLIMB THE CHAIN MUCH 16:13:26 AS SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GO AFTER THE DRUG RUNNERS TO GO 16:13:29 AFTER THE CARTEL LEADERS. SO IF YOU COULD SHARE YOUR 16:13:34 THOUGHTS ON HOW WE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE EFFORT IN 16:13:36 MEXICO BY STOPPING THE FLOW OF WEAPONS INTO MEXICO. 16:13:38 >> WELL, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO 16:13:41 MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE AN ABILITY FROM OUR MEXICAN 16:13:45 COUNTERPARTS TO LOOK AT REALLY BASIC THINGS, THE SERIAL NUMBERS 16:13:48 OF GUNS THAT ARE FOUND IN MEXICO SO THAT WE CAN TRACE THEM AND 16:13:54 FIND WHERE THEY ARE BEING SOLD. I MEAN, WHAT OUR HISTORY TELLS 16:13:58 US IS THAT A RELATIVELY SMALL NUMBER OF GUN STORES SUPPLY A 16:14:06 DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF GUNS THAT ARE USED IN VIOLENT CRIMES, 16:14:09 BOTH IN THE UNITED STATES AND CERTAINLY IN MEXICO, AND THEN TO 16:14:14 FOCUS OUR ATTENTION USING OUR ATF, STATE AND LOCAL 16:14:19 COUNTERPARTS, TO FOCUS ON THOSE PLACES WHERE THERE IS AN 16:14:25 EVIDENT -- WHERE THERE IS EVIDENCE, WHERE THERE IS A 16:14:28 PREDICATE TO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ENGAGED IN THE SALE OF 16:14:30 WEAPONS THAT END UP IN MEXICO THROUGH STORE PURCHASES, THROUGH 16:14:35 ILLEGAL -- STORE PURCHASES, ILLEGAL SALES PERHAPS TO, YOU 16:14:39 KNOW, PEOPLE WITH FELONY RECORDS. 16:14:41 I MEAN, WHATEVER IT IS, BUT TO FOLLOW THE EVIDENCE BACK TO 16:14:45 THOSE PLACES THAT ARE THE SOURCES OF THESE GUNS, AND I 16:14:48 THINK ONE OF THE WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN DO THAT IS BY HAVING A 16:14:51 GOOD INTERACTION WITH OUR MEXICAN COUNTERPARTS AND JUST BY 16:14:55 LOOKING AT THE WEAPONS THAT ARE SEIZED. 16:14:58 I MEAN, WE HAVE SEEN THESE THINGS. 16:15:00 WE HAVE WEAR HOUSES OF THESE THINGS, AND THEY NEED TO BE 16:15:05 PRESERVED AT LEAST LONG ENOUGH FOR AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT TO 16:15:09 GET THERE AND TO OBTAIN SERIAL NUMBERS AND THEN TO TRY TO TRACE 16:15:13 THE SERIAL NUMBERS -- TRACE THE SERIAL NUMBERS BACK. 16:15:15 >> DO WE NEED TO LOOK AT SOME OF THE SENTENCING PROVISIONS AS 16:15:19 WELL? I WAS INFORMED AT A MEETING WITH 16:15:22 SOME OF YOUR COLLEAGUES AND ATF AND WAS INFORMED ABOUT A RECENT 16:15:27 CASE WHERE SOMEONE WAS CONVICTED OF GUN RUNNING INTO MEXICO. 16:15:32 I THINK 1,000 WEAPONS WERE INVOLVED, AND THE SENTENCE WAS 16:15:36 30 SOME ODD MONTHS. THAT SEEMS LIKE AN AWFULLY LIGHT 16:15:40 SENTENCE FOR SOMEONE THAT IN ILLEGALLY EXPORTING TO MEXICO 16:15:46 1,000 WEAPONS, YOU KNOW, MAY SEE SEVERAL KILLINGS AS A RESULT OF 16:15:52 THOSE GUNS BEING ILLEGALLY TRAFFICKED INTO THE COUNTRY. 16:15:55 DO WE NEED TO LOOK AT WHETHER WE HAVE SUFFICIENT SENTENCING 16:15:58 DETERRENTS IN PLACE? >> YEAH. 16:16:00 I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH THAT CASE, BUT I THINK THAT'S A VERY 16:16:02 LEGITIMATE QUESTION THAT I THINK THAT WE SHOULD ASK AND MAYBE 16:16:06 LOOK NOT ONLY THAT CASE BUT A LARGER NUMBER OF CASES TO SEE 16:16:11 WHO IS IT THAT'S GETTING CONVICTED OF GUN RUNNING TO 16:16:14 MEXICO AND WHAT KINDS OF SENTENCES ARE THEY GETTING? 16:16:19 IF THEY SEEM TO BE LOW, IS IT BECAUSE THE STATUTES -- THE 16:16:22 PENALTIES THAT WE HAVE IN THE STATUTES ARE TOO LOW, OR IS 16:16:25 THERE SOMETHING ELSE THAT'S GOING ON? 16:16:27 BUT I THINK THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS A VERY LEGITIMATE 16:16:31 INQUIRY THAT WE SHOULD -- THAT WE SHOULD ENGAGE IN. 16:16:35 WE HAVE TO HAVE A DETERRENT EFFECT. 16:16:37 WE CAN'T MAKE THIS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE DO WITHOUT THE 16:16:42 THOUGHT THAT IF CAUGHT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO FACE A VERY 16:16:46 SUBSTANTIAL PENALTY GIVEN THE IMPACT THAT IT HAS IN MEXICO BUT 16:16:49 NOT ONLY IN MEXICO THE IMPACT THAT IT HAS IN THE UNITED 16:16:52 STATES. IT MAKES THE CARTELS STRONGER IN 16:16:55 MEXICO AND GIVES THEM A GREATER CAPACITY TO SHIP DRUGS TO OUR 16:17:00 COUNTRY, AND, YOU KNOW, THE VIOLENCE THAT WE SEE ALONG OUR 16:17:03 BOARDER IS ONLY FUELED BY THESE -- BY THESE SAME WEAPONS. 16:17:07 >> THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN, AND I YIELD BACK. 16:17:10 >> MR. CULVERSON. >> THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. 16:17:13 MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE MIRANDA CASE, OF COURSE, IS 16:17:16 DESIGNED TO PRESERVE THE ADMISSIBILITY OF EVIDENCE IN A 16:17:23 COURT PROCEEDING. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT MIRANDA IS 16:17:27 ESSENTIAL IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE ADMISSIBILITY OF EVIDENCE IN 16:17:31 CRIMINAL COURT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THE, FOR EXAMPLE, THESE 16:17:37 ENEMY COMBATANTS BROUGHT TO TRIAL IN ARTICLE III COURTS? 16:17:39 >> WELL, IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION. 16:17:42 FOR INSTANCE, THE -- THAT INITIAL INTERACT WITH 16:17:46 ABDULMUTALLAB, THERE WAS NOT THE NEED FOR MIRANDA WARNINGS UNDER 16:17:49 THE EXCEPTION TO MIRANDA, THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION. 16:17:53 THERE ARE A NUMBER OF EXCEPTIONS TO THE MIRANDA RULE THAT I THINK 16:17:57 ARE APPROPRIATE AND THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN USE IN 16:18:02 QUESTIONING, GAINING INTELLIGENCE FROM. 16:18:04 >> EXCITED UTTERANCE. >> EXCITED UTTERANCES, A WHOLE 16:18:08 VARIETY OF THINGS. THE SUPREME COURT SAID NOT TOO 16:18:11 MANY YEARS AGO THAT THE MIRANDA WARNING REGIME WAS OF 16:18:20 CONSTITUTIONAL DIMENSION. >> OKAY. 16:18:21 >> 7-2 OPINION I THINK OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. 16:18:24 >> YOU MENTIONED A MOMENT AGO, SIR, THAT THE PEOPLE ON THE 16:18:27 SCENE MADE THE DECISION TO PROVIDE MIRANDA WARNINGS TO THE 16:18:31 CHRISTMAS BOMBER. I JUST WANT TO CONFIRM THAT, IF 16:18:35 I UNDERSTOOD YOU CORRECTLY. WHO DID AUTHORIZE THE MIRANDA 16:18:37 WARNINGS TO BE GIVEN TO THE CHRISTMAS BOMBER? 16:18:38 >> THAT WAS DONE BY PEOPLE ON THE SCENE, BUT ALTHOUGH I WAS 16:18:42 NOT INVOLVED IN THAT, I THINK THAT THAT DECISION WAS CORRECT. 16:18:48 >> AND THE PURPOSE OF THE QUESTIONING, IF THE PURPOSE OF 16:18:51 THE QUESTIONING OF AN INDIVIDUAL IS TO GATHER INTELLIGENCE, ARE 16:18:54 THEY ENTITLED TO MIRANDA WARNINGS? 16:18:58 >> WELL, AGAIN, IT DEPENDS -- I MEAN, A BY-PRODUCT OF THE 16:19:02 QUESTIONING THAT WAS DONE OF ABDULMUTALLAB, JUSTIFIABLY DONE 16:19:06 UNDER THE PUBLIC SAFETY EXCEPTION, WAS THE ACQUISITION 16:19:10 OF INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION WHILE WE WERE ALSO TRYING TO 16:19:12 DETERMINE WHETHER THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE IN OTHER PLANES, 16:19:17 OTHER PEOPLE IN THE SAME PLANE THAT HE WAS ON. 16:19:18 YOU KNOW, I'VE HEARD A LOT SAID ABOUT, YOU KNOW, HE WAS ONLY 16:19:21 QUESTIONED FOR 50 MINUTES. THAT'S A FAIRLY LONG PERIOD OF 16:19:25 TIME. CERTAINLY NOT AS LONG AS WHAT 16:19:26 HAS HAPPENED SUBSEQUENT TO -- SUBSEQUENT TO THAT, BUT IF YOU 16:19:31 LOOK AT REPORT OF INTERVIEW THAT WAS GOTTEN FROM HIM IN THAT 50 16:19:35 MINUTES OR HOUR, THERE WAS A PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL OF 16:19:38 INFORMATION THAT WAS GOT FROM HIM -- GOTTEN -- RECEIVED FROM 16:19:42 HIM THAT PROVED TO BE ACTIONABLE, THAT PROVED TO BE 16:19:45 TIMELY AND THAT CONTINUES TO BE, AT LEAST IN SOME WAYS, THE BASIS 16:19:51 FOR A LOT OF THE COOPERATION THAT HE HAS SHARED WITH US. 16:19:54 >> SINCE YOU'VE MADE THE DECISION TO TRY KSM IN A -- IN A 16:20:01 U.S. COURT, WOULDN'T ALL OF HIS INCRIMINATING STATEMENTS BE 16:20:06 INADMISSIBLE BECAUSE HE WAS NOT ADVISED OF -- NOT GIVEN HIS 16:20:15 MIRANDA WARNINGS? >> THERE ARE -- THIS IS 16:20:19 SOMETHING I REALLY CAN'T GET INTO TOO MUCH. 16:20:21 THERE ARE A VARIETY OF STATEMENTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE 16:20:30 FOR OUR USE IN THAT TRIAL, SOME OF WHICH HAVE NO MIRANDA ISSUES 16:20:39 AT ALL. >> SO WHEN HE RAISED THE 16:20:43 OBJECTION IN -- AS HE WILL, WHEN HE IS BROUGHT BEFORE A FEDERAL 16:20:49 JUDGE THAT -- WHEN HIS LAWYERS RAISE THE OBJECTION THAT HE WAS 16:20:51 NOT GIVEN A MIRANDA WARNING WHAT, WILL BE THE POSITION OF 16:20:53 THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE? >> IN THE ARTICLE III TRIAL THAT 16:21:01 WE WOULD PRESENT THERE WOULD NOT BE A BASIS FOR A MIRANDA 16:21:07 CHALLENGE. >> MR. CHAIRMAN AND MR. ATTORNEY 16:21:08 GENERAL, THIS IS WHY THIS IS SUCH -- I MEAN, THIS IS JUST ONE 16:21:11 PIECE OF WHY IT REALLY IS A SINCERE CONCERN TO -- TO THE 16:21:17 PEOPLE OF TEXAS THAT I REPRESENT, TO MANY OF MY 16:21:19 COLLEAGUES. THE APPROACH OF THE DEPARTMENT 16:21:21 OF JUSTICE AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS THAT THIS IS A 16:21:26 LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTION, THAT IN THIS WAR ON TERROR IS 16:21:32 FUNDAMENTALLY A LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTION LIKE THE WAR ON CRIME AND 16:21:35 IT IS NOT. WE ARE AT WAR, AND TEXANS 16:21:38 UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU'RE AT WAR THE GOAL IS TO HUNT DOWN YOUR 16:21:41 ENEMY AND KILL THEM OR CAPTURE THEM, AND IN PARTICULAR IN THIS 16:21:45 CASE THIS -- THIS WAR REQUIRES THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED 16:21:50 STATES AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF BE GIVEN FULL DISCRETION AND 16:21:54 AUTHORITY TO USE WHATEVER TOOLS ARE AT HIS DISPOSAL AS THE 16:21:59 SUPREME COURT HAS RULED D REPEATEDLY, AND SPECIFICALLY 16:22:05 REFERRING TO THE HAMDI VERSUS RUMSFELD CASE, THE SUPREME COURT 16:22:08 SAID THAT IN REVERSING THE SECOND CIRCUIT COURT'S DECISION 16:22:14 ON PADILLA, THAT A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, QUOTING THE 16:22:18 SUPREME COURT, NO LESS AN ALIEN CAN BE PART OF OR ENFORCING 16:22:28 PARTNERS OF THE UNITED STATES AND ENGAGE IN COMBAT AGAINST THE 16:22:32 UNITED STATES AND A CITIZEN IF RELEASED WOULD POSE A THREAT OF 16:22:35 RETURNING TO THE -- TO THE BATTLEFIELD AS PART OF THE 16:22:38 ONGOING CONFLICT, THAT THAT U.S. CITIZEN CAN BE HELD IN DETENTION 16:22:47 AND USED THROUGH THE MILITARY TRIBUNAL SYSTEM BECAUSE WE'RE AT 16:22:54 WAR AND THAT'S MY CONCERN. IT'S A VERY DEEP-SEEDED AND 16:22:57 EARNEST AND PROFOUND DISAGREEMENT WITH THE APPROACH 16:23:00 OF THE ADMINISTRATION THAT THIS IS NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT. 16:23:01 WE'RE AT WAR. AND YOU'VE, AS MR. WOLF QUITE 16:23:05 CORRECTLY SAID THROUGH THE KSM CASE SET THE PRECEDENT, THAT 16:23:09 WHEN OSAMA BIN LADEN IS CAPTURED, AND YOU DIDN'T ANSWER 16:23:11 THE QUESTION DIRECTLY, BUT IT IS A VERY LEGITIMATE ONE, IF OSAMA 16:23:16 BIN LADEN IS CAPTURED ALIVE BECAUSE HIS -- HIS ROLE IS 16:23:22 EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF KSM, WOULD YOU TRY HIM IN A CIVILIAN COURT? 16:23:27 >> AS I SAID, I DON'T EXPECT THAT OSAMA BIN LADEN WILL FACE 16:23:34 JUSTICE IN ANY MILITARY COMMISSION, IN AN ARTICLE III 16:23:38 COURT. >> RIGHT. 16:23:39 >> ODDS ARE, BUT IF HE IS CAPTURED ALIVE, WHERE WILL HE BE 16:23:43 TRIED? >> AGAIN -- 16:23:44 >> IF HE'S CAPTURED ALIVE. >> I THINK THAT IS SPECULATION 16:23:50 THAT IS -- YOU'RE ASKING ME TO SPECULATE ABOUT SOMETHING THAT 16:23:53 ON THE BASIS OF ALL THE INTELLIGENCE THAT I'VE HAD A 16:23:56 CHANCE TO REVIEW, I DON'T -- THE POSSIBILITY JUST SIMPLY DOES NOT 16:24:05 EXIST. >> IT IS PROFOUNDLY CONCERNING 16:24:07 TO ME, TO THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS, I KNOW I SAW IT IN THE POLLS IN 16:24:13 MASSACHUSETTS, THAT BECAUSE OF THE PRECEDENT YOU'RE SETTING IN 16:24:16 THE KSM TRIAL, BECAUSE OF THE PRECEDENT YOU'RE SETTING IN THE 16:24:21 GHAILANI TRIAL, BECAUSE OF THE PRECEDENCE YOU'RE SETTING IN 16:24:24 GRANTING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TONE MY SOLDIERS IN TIME OF WAR 16:24:28 THAT YOUR APPROACH TO THE WAR ON TERROR IS AS THOUGH IT IS A WAR 16:24:34 ON CRIME AND FIGHTING GANGS OR MURDERERS IN THE CITIES OF THE 16:24:38 UNITED STATES, AND IT'S NOT. WE'RE AT WAR, AND IT IS 16:24:41 COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. >> WHAT I HAVE SAID I DON'T KNOW 16:24:44 HOW MANY TIMES IS THAT I KNOW WE'RE AT WAR, AND LET ME MAKE 16:24:46 THIS CLEAR. LET ME MAKE THIS VERY, VERY 16:24:50 CLEAR. IF YOU WERE TO TAKE AWAY FROM 16:24:54 THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT FROM THIS GOVERNMENT, FROM THIS 16:24:57 ADMINISTRATION AND SUBSEQUENT ADMINISTRATIONS THE ABILITY TO 16:24:59 USE ARTICLE III COURTS, YOU WOULD WEAKEN OUR ABILITY TO 16:25:04 FIGHT SUCCESSFULLY THESE WARS. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. 16:25:10 THIS TOOL THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS ONLY ONE TOOL THAT WE 16:25:15 HAVE IN OUR ARSENAL, AND TO TAKE THAT TOOL AWAY AND TO SAY THESE 16:25:20 ARE PEOPLE WHO CAN'T BE TRIED WOULD WEAKEN OUR ABILITY TO 16:25:27 ULTIMATELY BE SUCCESSFUL. YOU KNOW, I LOOK AT -- BEFORE 16:25:29 YOU ASKED THE QUESTION ABOUT EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE CAUGHT ON THE 16:25:33 BATTLEFIELD AND PROSECUTED IN COURT. 16:25:35 >> FOREIGN NATIONALS. >> FOREIGN NATIONALS. 16:25:38 >> THIS WOMAN SADIQI, CAUGHT IN AFGHANISTAN AND INDICTED IN NEW 16:25:45 YORK BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. AN IRAQI-BORN DUTCH CITIZEN 16:25:51 TRIED IN D.C. FOR PLANTING ROADSIDE BOMBS, TARGETING U.S. 16:25:54 SOLDIERS IN IRAQ. AGAIN, YOU KNOW, MINOR EXAMPLES. 16:25:59 PERHAPS YOU WOULD SAY THAT, BUT NEVERTHELESS EXAMPLES, YOU KNOW, 16:26:02 OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMMITTED ACTS OVERSEAS AND TRIED HERE IN 16:26:07 AMERICAN COURTS, BUT THE THING THAT I WANT YOU TO FOCUS ON -- I 16:26:11 MEAN, IN THE GHAILANI CASE IS CONSISTENT, AGAIN, WITH WHAT 16:26:14 HAPPENED IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION WITH THE OTHER 16:26:16 PEOPLE WHO WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EMBASSY BOMBINGS. 16:26:18 IF YOU TAKE AWAY THIS ARTICLE III TOOL, AND IT IS NOT THE ONLY 16:26:23 THING THAT WE USE, IF YOU TAKE IT AWAY, YOU ARE TAKING AWAY 16:26:28 UNNECESSARILY AN EFFECTIVE TOOL AND ONE ONLY HAS TO LOOK AT WHAT 16:26:31 HAS HAPPENED THIS YEAR IN TERMS OF WHO WE HAVE INCAPACITATED, 16:26:34 WHO WE HAVE GOTTEN VIABLE INTELLIGENCE FROM, WHO WE'LL BE 16:26:37 SENTENCING FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME IN THE COMING MONTHS. 16:26:39 >> AND I'M NOT SUGGESTING TAKING AWAY. 16:26:42 IT'S THAT YOU JUST TURN TO IT TOO READILY AND THE APPROACH OF 16:26:45 THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE DEPARTMENT IS THAT THIS IS A WAR 16:26:47 ON CRIME, AND IT IS REALLY NOT. WE ARE AT WAR, AND -- AND THE 16:26:50 TWO CASES YOU MENTIONED, I WANT TO MAKE SURE, BECAUSE THIS IS 16:26:53 THE FIRST TIME IN PUBLIC TESTIMONY YOU'VE EVER 16:26:55 IDENTIFIED, TELL ME AGAIN THE NAME OF THOSE CASES BECAUSE I AM 16:26:59 UNAWARE OF ANY EXAMPLE IN AMERICAN HISTORY. 16:27:01 >> DON'T ASK ME TO SPELL THEM. >> OKAY. 16:27:05 >> AFIA SADIQI, THE WOMAN CONVICTED IN NEW YORK. 16:27:10 SHE WAS CAUGHT IN AFGHANISTAN, SHOT AT MILITARY SOLDIERS, 16:27:13 INDICTED IN NEW YORK BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. 16:27:15 >> AND SHE'S A FOREIGN NATIONAL. >> FOREIGN NATIONAL. 16:27:16 >> OKAY. >> AND THEN WASAM AL DHALIMA, 16:27:23 IRAQI-BORN DUTCH CITIZEN TRIED IN D.C. FOR PLANTING ROADSIDE 16:27:28 BOMBS TARGETING U.S. SOLDIERS IN IRAQ. 16:27:29 >> AND BOTH OF THOSE WERE SENT TO CIVILIAN COURT BY THE BUSH 16:27:33 ADMINISTRATION. >> YEAH. 16:27:34 >> OKAY. >> I WILL RUN THOSE DOWN. 16:27:38 THOSE ARE ONES THAT NONE OF US HAVE EVER BEEN AWARE OF BEFORE 16:27:42 BECAUSE IN GRANTING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO THESE 16:27:44 FOLKS AND GIVING THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO AS IN THE 16:27:46 GHAILANI CASE FILE A MOTION TO BE RELEASED OR THE CHARGES 16:27:52 DISMISSED BECAUSE OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE A SPEEDY TRIAL, IT 16:27:55 OPENS -- IT GIVES AN OPPORTUNITY TO OUR ENEMIES NOT ONLY TO -- TO 16:27:59 HAVE THESE PEOPLE RELEASED AND FREED, CHAIN OF EVIDENCE WASN'T 16:28:05 PRESERVED, CAN'T PROVE BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, SPEEDY TRIAL, 16:28:08 ET CETERA, THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE IN MILITARY TRIBUNALS. 16:28:12 THAT'S A HUGE CONCERN. >> BUT TO THE EXTENT -- YOU 16:28:15 RAISE GOOD POINTS THERE, AND TO THE EXTENT THAT LOOKING AT AN 16:28:19 INDIVIDUAL CASE THAT HAD THOSE KINDS OF PROBLEMS AND IF I WERE 16:28:25 CONVINCED THAT THOSE APPROXIMATE EXISTED AND THEY COULD NOT BE 16:28:28 CURED IN AN ARTICLE III COURT, WOULD I HAVE THE OPTION OF 16:28:33 TRYING TO TRY THAT MATTER IN THE MILITARY COMMISSIONS. 16:28:35 THERE ARE A VARIETY OF FACTORS THAT GO INTO IT, AND THAT'S WHY 16:28:38 I SAY IT'S DONE ON A CASE BUSH DAY BUSH CASE BASIS. 16:28:41 >> YES, SIR. >> WHAT WOULD BE BEST FOR THIS 16:28:43 CASE. >> I'M SURE I'M ABOUT OUT OF 16:28:45 TIME. THE CHAIRMAN IS VERY GRACIOUS. 16:28:46 >> WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU IN ANOTHER ROUND. 16:28:49 WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU. >> MR. CERRANO HAS WAITED A LONG 16:28:53 TIME. WE'VE HAD A NUMBER OF ROUNDS. 16:28:55 FEEL FREE TO ASK YOUR QUESTIONS. WE'LL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY. 16:29:01 >> THANK YOU SO MUCH, MR. CHAIRMAN, FOR BEING LATE. 16:29:03 I WAS INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH AT A HEARING WHERE WE WERE DISCUSSING 16:29:07 COMPENSATION FOR THE VICTIMS OF 9/11. 16:29:11 MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, I AM IN A VERY, VERY, VERY UNIQUE OR SMALL 16:29:15 MINORITY. I'M THE ONLY ELECTED OFFICIAL IN 16:29:18 NEW YORK WHO STILL THINK IT'S FINE TO HAVE THOSE TRIALS IN NEW 16:29:21 YORK, AND I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHY I FEEL THAT WAY, BUT 16:29:24 IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW HOW IT CAME TO BE WHAT IT IS NOW. 16:29:31 WHEN IT WAS FIRST FLOATED OR INTRODUCED AS A THOUGHT THAT WE 16:29:36 COULD DO IT IN NEW YORK EVERYBODY SAID THEY WERE IN 16:29:40 FAVOR IT AND EVERYBODY SAID IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO AND 16:29:43 THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED. WHAT HAPPENED WAS NOT WHAT 16:29:45 PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY THINK HAPPENED. 16:29:47 IT WAS NOT THE COMMUNITY THAT SPOKE UP, NOT THE ELECTED 16:29:50 OFFICIALS, IT WAS THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY THAT SAID THAT THEY 16:29:52 WERE CONCERNED ABOUT TRAFFIC JAMS IN LOWER MANHATTAN. 16:29:56 TRAFFIC JAMS IN NEW YORK CITY, THAT'S REDUNDANT. 16:29:59 THERE'S -- THIS SHOULD NOT BE A SHOCK TO ANYBODY. 16:30:03 IRONICALLY THE PEOPLE WHO LOST SO MUCH BUSINESS DURING THE 16:30:07 ATTACKS AND THE AFTERMATH OF THE ATTACKS WERE NOW COMPLAINING 16:30:11 ABOUT THIS CONGESTION IN DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN, AND LITTLE 16:30:13 BY LITTLE YOU BEGAN TO SEE THIS TURNING AROUND OF ELECTED 16:30:17 OFFICIALS, COLLEAGUES OF MINE, FRIENDS OF MINE, PEOPLE I'VE 16:30:20 SERVED WITH FOR MANY YEARS WORKS WERE RAH, RAH, RAH FOR HAVING 16:30:25 THEM IN NEW YORK AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY ARE AGAINST IT. 16:30:28 NEXT THING YOU KNEW, SOMETHING WHICH I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND 16:30:31 BUT THAT I RESPECT, THE FAMILIES OF VICTIMS TURNED AGAINST HAVING 16:30:34 THE TRIALS IN NEW YORK. SOMEHOW THIS WAS AN INSULT TO 16:30:38 THEIR -- TO THEIR MEMORY TO DO IT IN NEW YORK. 16:30:40 I SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY. THE BEST RESPECT YOU CAN PAY 16:30:45 VICTIMS IS TO SAY THAT AS A COUNTRY THEY MAY HAVE KILLED 16:30:49 SOME OF US. THEY HAVE MAIMED MANY OF US, BUT 16:30:52 THEY HAVE NOT DEFEATED US AS A COUNTRY AND THAT WE'RE NOT 16:30:56 AFRAID TO TRY PEOPLE AT SCENE OF THE CRIME AND THAT WE'RE NOT 16:30:59 AFRAID TO TRY THEM WITHIN OUR COURT SYSTEM. 16:31:02 THAT'S THE WAY I FEEL. I WAS ONE OF THE FEW ELECTED 16:31:05 OFFICIALS WHO WAS NOT IN WASHINGTON THAT DAY. 16:31:07 I WAS IN NEW YORK CITY. MY SON WHO IS NOW A STATE 16:31:10 SENATOR WAS RUNNING FOR THE CITY COUNCIL. 16:31:14 VERY FEW PEOPLE WROTE ABOUT THE FACT THAT ELECTIONS WERE 16:31:17 INTERRUPTED MIDDAY. AMONGST ALL THE THINGS THAT THE 16:31:19 TERRORISTS ACCOMPLISHED, ONE WAS TO DISRUPT AN ELECTION WHICH 16:31:23 STANDS AT THE CENTER OF OUR DEMOCRACY, AND I REMEMBER THE 16:31:26 PAIN THAT DAY AND THE AFTERMATH OF THAT PAIN AND EVERYTHING THAT 16:31:31 WE'RE STILL DISCUSSING TODAY, AND YET THERE'S THIS FEELING 16:31:34 THAT SOMEHOW IF WE DO IT IN A CIVILIAN COURT AND IF WE DO IT 16:31:37 IN NEW YORK WE'RE DISHONORING THESE FOLKS AND WE'RE OPENING 16:31:41 OURSELVES TO MORE TERRORIST ATTACKS. 16:31:43 WELL, IF THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE UPSET AT THE FACT THAT WE'RE 16:31:46 GOING TO PUT PEOPLE ON TRIAL, DOES IT MATTER WHETHER WE PUT 16:31:49 THEM ON TRIAL IN NEW YORK, IN DULUTH, MINNESOTA OR WAUKEGAN, 16:31:56 ILLINOIS, WITH ALL RESPECT TO DULUTH AND WAUKEGAN? 16:31:59 THEY ARE GOING TO BE ANGRY REGARDLESS OF WHERE WE DO IT. 16:32:01 IF WE DO IT IN A MILITARY COURT, THEY WILL BE ANGRY. 16:32:04 IF WE DO IT IN A CIVILIAN COURT, THEY WILL BE ANGRY. 16:32:07 IF THEY ARE GOING TO BE ANGRY, THEY WILL BE ANGRY. 16:32:09 AND IF NEW YORK CITY IS GOING TO BE UNDER THE POSSIBILITY OF AN 16:32:12 ATTACK BECAUSE OF THAT, I WOULD SUBMIT TO ALL OF US THAT NEW 16:32:18 YORK LIVES WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS STILL 16:32:20 THE MAIN TARGET FOR ANY TERRORIST GROUP. 16:32:22 IT IS THE MAIN TARGET. IT IS THE BIG APPLE THAT PEOPLE 16:32:25 LOVE TO HATE, BUT IT IS A SYMBOL OF WHO WE ARE AS A COUNTRY, THE 16:32:31 BIGNESS AND THE STRENGTH AND THE FINANCIAL COMMUNITY, AND SO I 16:32:37 KNOW WHEN AN ISSUE HAS LEFT ME, AND IT'S NOT ONE I'M GOING TO 16:32:40 DEVOTE A LOT OF TIME TO IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. 16:32:43 THAT TRAIN MAY HAVE LEFT THE STATION ALREADY. 16:32:45 IN FACT, I THINK IT HAS, BECAUSE EVERY ELECTED OFFICIAL NOW 16:32:49 THINKS THIS IS THE WORST THING YOU COULD DO, BUT AT LEAST KNOW 16:32:51 THAT THERE'S ONE ELECTED OFFICIAL IN NEW YORK CITY WHO 16:32:55 FEELS THAT THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH TRYING THEM THERE. 16:32:58 ON THE CONTRARY. I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY DRAMATIC 16:33:01 TO SAY WE'RE NOT AFRAID OF YOU. WE WILL TRY YOU AT SCENE OF THE 16:33:05 CRIME. WE WILL TRY YOU IN OUR COURTS, 16:33:06 AND WE'LL SHOW YOU THAT YOU CAN'T DEFEAT OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM 16:33:12 AND YOU CAN'T DEFEAT US AS A PEOPLE, AND I JUST WANTED TO 16:33:15 MAKE THAT STATEMENT TO YOU, SIR. >> WELL, THANK YOU, SIR. 16:33:18 I MEAN, FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN 16:33:22 NEW YORK CITY. I WAS BORN IN THE BRONX. 16:33:24 SPENT MY FIRST YEARS IN MANHATTAN. 16:33:27 RAISED LARGELY IN QUEENS, WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE AND LAW 16:33:30 SCHOOL IN MANHATTAN. I'M A NEW YORKER. 16:33:34 MY BROTHER LOST MANY PEOPLE. HE'S A PORT AUTHORITY, RETIRED 16:33:38 PORT AUTHORITY LIEUTENANT. HE LOST COLLEAGUES, PEOPLE WHO 16:33:41 WENT TO TRAINING SCHOOL WITH HIM THAT DAY. 16:33:45 THE DECISION THAT I MADE I THOUGHT WAS THE RIGHT ONE FOR 16:33:50 THAT CASE, BUT THERE WAS, VERY FRANKLY, AN EMOTIONAL COMPONENT 16:33:54 TO THAT AS WELL, AND WHAT WAS I DOING TO MY CITY? 16:34:00 I THINK THAT THE DECISION THAT I MADE WAS GOOD FOR THE CASE AND 16:34:05 ULTIMATELY THAT'S WHAT I HAD TO FOCUS ON, BUT I APPRECIATE THE 16:34:09 OBSERVATIONS THAT -- THAT YOU HAVE MADE. 16:34:12 I THINK THAT WE SHOULD HAVE GREAT FAITH IN THE RESILIENCE OF 16:34:16 OUR SYSTEMS, THE RESILIENCE OF OUR PEOPLE AND THE TOUGHNESS 16:34:21 THAT HAS ALWAYS SEPARATED AMERICANS FROM OTHER PEOPLES IN 16:34:26 THIS WORLD, AND WHAT'S MADE THIS COUNTRY GREAT. 16:34:30 YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT THE TRAIN HAS LEFT 16:34:34 THE STATION. IT IS CERTAINLY A FACTOR THAT WE 16:34:37 ARE WORKING WITH AS WE TRY TO DETERMINE WHERE THESE TRIALS -- 16:34:40 WHERE THIS TRIAL SHOULD OCCUR, BUT JUST IN A VERY PERSONAL 16:34:45 LEVEL THAT'S WHAT AT LEAST WAS A PART OF MY -- MY THINKING. 16:34:48 >> THANK YOU. MR. CHAIRMAN, DO I HAVE TIME TO 16:34:53 ASK A QUESTION? >> YOU HAVE ALL THE TIME YOU 16:34:56 WANT. >> THANK YOU. PAST. 16:35:00 IT KEEPS GROWING AS AN ISSUE AND THAT'S HATE CRIMES AGAINST 16:35:06 IMMIGRANTS. AS WE GET CLOSER TO PERHAPS 16:35:09 DISCUSSING IMMIGRATION, AS THE ECONOMY CONTINUES TO HURT, AS WE 16:35:17 CONTINUE DEPORTATIONS AND RAIDS, I THINK IT COULD ONLY GET WORSE 16:35:22 BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN STRONG ON 16:35:26 TRYING TO -- TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS WHOLE ISSUE, BUT I -- 16:35:29 I THINK WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO CALL THE ATTENTION OF THIS 16:35:34 CONGRESS AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO THE FACT THAT THERE IS 16:35:38 ANOTHER CATEGORY OF HATE CRIMES, AND THAT'S PEOPLE WHO ARE 16:35:42 ATTACKED BECAUSE THEY ARE IMMIGRANTS, BECAUSE THEY LOOK 16:35:44 LIKE IMMIGRANTS, BECAUSE SOMEHOW BEFORE THEY WERE ATTACKED NO ONE 16:35:50 ASKED WHETHER HE WAS HERE ILLEGALLY OR NOT. 16:35:52 THAT DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, BUT IT ENCOMPASSES A LOT OF 16:35:55 PEOPLE THE AND, AGAIN, I WANT TO BE CLEAR. 16:35:57 WHAT I WAS SAYING IS BECAUSE YOU'RE ILLEGAL YOU SHOULD BE 16:36:01 ATTACKED, BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER TO PEOPLE IF YOU'RE AN IMMIGRANT 16:36:03 OR YOU LOOK LIKE AN IMMIGRANT, THEY ARE GOING TO ATTACK, AND 16:36:05 IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH, AND I'M WONDERING 16:36:10 JUST WHAT NEW PROGRAMS ARE YOU PUTTING IN PLACE, NEW ACTIONS 16:36:14 THAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE LOOKING AT AS WE DEAL WITH 16:36:16 THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE? >> WE CERTAINLY HAVE A NEW TOOL, 16:36:19 A VERY SUBSTANTIAL TOOL, THE MATTHEW SHEPARD AND JAMES BYRD 16:36:25 ACT THAT WAS FINALLY ENACTED. I TESTIFIED ON THAT ISSUE WHEN I 16:36:30 DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL 10 OR 11 YEARS AGO. 16:36:32 IT WAS FINALLY PASSED IN OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR. 16:36:35 THAT GIVES US TOOLS THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE BEFORE, AND SO THAT 16:36:39 IS A TOOL THAT WE WILL USE TO GET AT THE KINDS OF VICTIMS, 16:36:45 PEOPLE WHO ARE VICTIMIZED IN THE WAY THAT YOU HAVE DESCRIBED. 16:36:47 WE HAVE IN OUR BUDGET FOR NEXT YEAR A $1.4 MILLION INCREASE SO 16:36:51 THAT WE CAN HIRE 14 ATTORNEYS IN OUR CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION. 16:36:55 THIS IS A PRIORITY FOR THIS DIVISION. 16:36:58 TOM PEREZ IS THE ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR THE CIVIL 16:37:01 RIGHTS DIVISION. HE'S ENERGIZED THAT PLACE. 16:37:05 HE HAS THE DIVISION FOCUSING ON THE THINGS THAT HAVE -- THAT IT 16:37:08 HAS TRADITIONALLY BEEN FOCUSED ON, AND HATE CRIMES PREVENTION, 16:37:14 HATE CRIMES PROSECUTIONS ARE ONE OF THE KEY THINGS THAT I'VE 16:37:17 ASKED TOM TO FOCUS ON IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION, AND I'M 16:37:21 CONFIDENT THAT WITH THESE ADDITIONAL LAWYERS AND WITH THIS 16:37:24 ADDITIONAL STAT YOU'RE THE THAT WE WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, BUT THAT 16:37:27 IS A PRIORITY FOR US. >> THANK YOU. 16:37:32 >> I THANK YOU FOR THAT, AND, AGAIN, I REITERATE THE OBVIOUS, 16:37:36 THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID PUBLICLY, AND HE CERTAINLY TOLD 16:37:38 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT WENT TO SEE HIM LAST FRIDAY, THAT HE 16:37:43 WANTS TO WORK ON IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL, AND THAT'S GREAT 16:37:49 NEWS, CONTINUES TO BE GREAT NEWS. 16:37:50 AS YOU KNOW, THAT WILL ONLY INSPIRE SOME, A FEW PEOPLE IN 16:37:54 THIS COUNTRY TO COMMIT EVEN MORE HATE CRIMES BECAUSE SOMEHOW 16:37:57 THOSE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE LEGALIZED AND THEY HAVE TO BE 16:38:00 DEALT WITH AND TAUGHT A LESSON, SO I WOULD HOPE THAT WE STAY 16:38:05 VERY VIGILANT AS THIS PERIOD TAMES PLACE. 16:38:07 >> THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. 16:38:09 >> THANK YOU, MR. SERRANO. MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE 16:38:12 PREMISE EVIDENTLY FOR THOSE WHO ARE QUESTIONING, TRYING PEOPLE 16:38:19 IN THESE TERROR SUSPECTS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN CIVILIAN, 16:38:23 ARTICLE III COURTS, THE PREMISE OR THE CONCERN AROUND THE 16:38:29 MIRANDA RIGHTS ARE THAT WE WON'T GET GOOD INFORMATION FROM THEM, 16:38:34 SO JUST A LITTLE BIT OF QUESTIONING, LINE OF QUESTIONING 16:38:38 WITH REGARD TO THAT. FIRST OF ALL, WITH REGARD TO 16:38:45 ABDULMUTALLAB, THE CHRISTMAS BOMBER, A TIME LINE. 16:38:51 HE WAS, AND CORRECT ME TO THE EXTENT THAT I'M IN ERROR HERE, 16:38:55 BUT I'D LIKE TO LEAD YOU THROUGH THIS A LITTLE BIT HERE. 16:38:57 HE WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY BY SECURITY OFFICIALS AT THE 16:39:04 AIRPORT FIRST, I BELIEVE, AND THEN TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL AND 16:39:08 THEN INTERVIEWED BY THE FBI TEAM WHICH AS YOU DESCRIBED WAS A 16:39:14 PRETTY SOPHISTICATED GROUP OF PEOPLE. 16:39:18 >> I BELIEVE -- I'M NOT SURE BUT I BELIEVE THAT THAT'S THE 16:39:21 CORRECT TIME LINE AND THE CORRECT PEOPLE WHO INTERACTED 16:39:24 WITH HIM ALONG THE WAY. >> YEAH. 16:39:26 AND SO UP TO THAT POINT, MIRANDA RIGHTS ARE ALL PRESERVED BECAUSE 16:39:32 THAT'S OBVIOUSLY I THINK AN EXEMPTION TO THE NECESSITY FOR 16:39:35 ISSUING MIRANDA RIGHTS, PUBLIC SAFETY, QUESTIONING SOMEBODY IN 16:39:39 THE HEAT OF AN ARREST AND -- AND QUESTIONING WHICH IS GOING TO OR 16:39:48 IN THE AFTERMATH OF AN EVENT BECAUSE YOU DO HAVE PUBLIC 16:39:51 SAFETY CONCERNS SO YOU'RE MORE INTERESTED IN THAT THAN YOU ARE 16:39:55 IN -- >> YEAH, AND I THINK YOU COULD 16:39:57 ALSO ARGUE, AT LEAST IN THOSE INITIAL TIMES, YOU MIGHT EVEN 16:40:01 ARGUE THAT IT WAS NOT A CUSTODIAL SITUATION. 16:40:03 >> OKAY. >> AND SO HE WAS QUESTIONED FOR 16:40:08 SOME PERIOD OF TIME WITHOUT MIRANDA RIGHTS, CORRECT? 16:40:10 >> CORRECT. >> AND THEN HE WAS TREATED IN 16:40:12 THE HOSPITAL AND THEN AFTER HE WAS RELEASED HE WAS MIRANDIZED. 16:40:16 >> HE WAS. >> IS THAT CORRECT? 16:40:18 >> HE WAS MIRANDIZED BY A DIFFERENT TEAM, A CLEAN TEAM AS 16:40:24 WE CALL IT, AND I THINK IT WAS INTERESTING THAT THEIR VIEW WAS 16:40:29 THAT HE CAME OUT OF THAT PROCEDURE A DIFFERENT PERSON, 16:40:34 THAT HE WAS MORE, FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, MORE WARRIOR-LIKE, 16:40:39 AND I'M NOT SURE THAT IS -- I'M NOT CONVINCED, AND THIS IS JUST 16:40:42 MY PERSONAL OPINION, THIS IS ERIC HOLDER'S PERSONAL OPINION. 16:40:47 I THINK -- I DON'T THINK IT WAS THE MIRANDA WARNINGS THAT MADE 16:40:49 HIM DECIDE NOT TO TALK. I THINK IT WAS SOMETHING WITHIN 16:40:55 HIM THAT TOOK HIM BACK TO, YOU KNOW, WHERE HE WAS IMMEDIATELY 16:41:00 BEFORE HE IGNITED THE BOMB OR WHATEVER. 16:41:04 HE BECAME THAT PERSON AGAIN, AND SO THAT'S WHY I THINK HE 16:41:09 DECIDED -- HE -- HE ANSWERED A FEW QUESTIONS IN THAT SECOND 16:41:16 INTERACTION BUT NOT MANY AND THEN ULTIMATELY DECIDED THAT HE 16:41:19 DID NOT WANT TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION. 16:41:21 BUT, I THINK WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET THAT, YOU KNOW, IN THE 16:41:25 DAYS THAT FOLLOWED THAT, ACTUALLY IN THE WEEKS THAT HAVE 16:41:27 FOLLOWED THAT HE HAS BEEN TALKING. 16:41:30 >> YEAH. >> WELL, AND YOU'RE GETTING MY 16:41:32 POINT, BUT YOU'RE GETTING AHEAD OF MY POINT. 16:41:35 MY FIRST POINT IS THAT HE WAS INTERVIEWED BY A QUALIFIED TEAM, 16:41:40 AND TO UNDERMINE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF THE TEAM I 16:41:45 THINK IS -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT JUSTIFICATION THERE WOULD BE FOR 16:41:48 THAT. THESE ARE PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE 16:41:49 OUT IN THE FIELD WHO ARE TRAINED IN THIS AREA. 16:41:52 >> THE PEOPLE WHO DID THAT FIRST ONE--HOUR AND 50-MINUTE 16:41:58 INTERVIEW WERE GOOD, TRAINED FBI AGENTS. 16:41:59 >> YEAH. >> AND ONE THING I SHOULD FOR 16:42:04 THE RECORD. TO THE EXTENT THAT THE 16:42:05 DETERMINATION WAS MADE BY THEM ONLY WITH REGARD TO THE WHOLE 16:42:09 MIRANDA WARNINGS QUESTION, THAT WAS NOT DONE ONLY BY THEM. 16:42:12 IT WAS ALSO DONE IN CONJUNCTION WITH PEOPLE AT FBI AND JUSTICE 16:42:16 DEPARTMENT HEADQUARTERS. I WAS NOT INVOLVED, BUT OTHER 16:42:19 PEOPLE AT HIGHER LEVELS WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT MADE THOSE 16:42:21 DECISIONS. >> OKAY. 16:42:23 SO THE SUSPECT WAS INTERVIEWED PRIOR TO BE BEING MIRANDIZED, 16:42:28 WAS MIRANDIZED AND WAS SUBSEQUENTLY QUESTIONED AFTER 16:42:31 BEING MIRANDIZED, INITIALLY WAS DIFFICULT RIGHT AFTER GETTING 16:42:38 OUT, BUT SUBSEQUENTLY YOUR TIM HAS BEEN OFFERED A NUMBER OF 16:42:42 TIMES THAT A LOT OF GOOD INFORMATION OR PERFECTLY GOOD 16:42:45 INFORMATION WAS GOTTEN AFTER BEING MIRANDIZED. 16:42:47 >> AND WHAT PEOPLE SHOULD UNDERSTAND IS THAT THE -- THERE 16:42:51 ARE STUDIES IN THOSE BRIEFS THAT WE'VE HEARD ABOUT. 16:42:54 I DON'T HAVE IT IN FRONT OF ME, THAT SUBSTANTIAL NUMBERS OF 16:42:58 PEOPLE WILL EVEN AFTER THEY ARE MIRANDIZED CONTINUE TO TALK, 16:43:04 ONE, AND, TWO, ONCE THEY ARE PROVIDED WITH LAWYERS, THE 16:43:08 LAWYERS CAN MAKE A MORE OBJECTIVE DETERMINATION OF THE 16:43:11 FIX THAT THEIR CLIENTS ARE IN, AND THE LAWYERS, THE DEFENSE 16:43:15 LAWYERS, FREQUENTLY BECOME NOT ADVOCATES FOR THE GOVERNMENT, 16:43:20 ADVOCATES FOR THEIR CLIENT IN THE SENSE THAT THEY TELL AN 16:43:26 ABDULMUTALLAB, UNLESS YOU WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE 16:43:29 IN A SUPER MAX FACILITY YOU BETTER START SHARING INFORMATION 16:43:32 WITH THE GOVERNMENT, AND -- AND I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO THE 16:43:35 SPECIFIC CASE, BUT THAT FREQUENTLY HAPPENS THAT THE 16:43:39 DEFENSE LAWYER HELPING HIS CLIENT ALSO HELPS THE 16:43:42 GOVERNMENT. >> AND I THINK THAT'S THE POINT 16:43:44 I REALLY WANT TO GET TO IS THAT IF THE PREMISE OF THE -- OF 16:43:50 THOSE WHO ARGUE THAT A PERSON SHOULD BE QUESTIONED WITHOUT 16:43:52 MIRANDA RIGHTS IS THAT BETTER INFORMATION IS RECEIVED PRIOR TO 16:43:56 OR BY TECHNIQUES WHICH ARE EMPLOYED WITHOUT MIRANDA RIGHTS, 16:44:00 THAT'S A PREMISE THEY WOULD HAVE TO PROVE, AND IT IS CERTAINLY 16:44:05 CONTESTED IN THE -- IN THE PUBLIC DEBATE, BUT IN ORDER 16:44:09 TO -- TO EVEN GET TO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER HE SHOULD BE 16:44:12 MIRNDIZED FOR THE QUALITY OF THE INFORMATION PURPOSES OR NOT 16:44:18 MIRANDIZED WOULD STAND OR FALL ON THE BASIS OF WHETHER GOOD 16:44:21 INFORMATION -- BETTER INFORMATION RECEIVED BY 16:44:24 INTERROGATION OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT MIRANDIZED AND THAT'S A 16:44:27 PREMISE THAT HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED OR LAID BEFORE, SO 16:44:32 LET'S NOT PRESUME IN THESE QUESTIONS, I GUESS IS MY POINT, 16:44:37 THAT PRE-MIRANDIZED INFORMATION OR NEVER MIRNDIZING SOMEBODY IS 16:44:43 BETTER INFORMATION THAN NOT. IT'S SIMPLY AS I UNDERSTAND IT 16:44:49 NOT VALID AN ACCEPTED PREMISE AMONG PROFESSION. 16:44:54 YOUR COMMENT. >> I THINK YOU RAISE A VERY GOOD 16:44:56 POINT, AND THAT IS ONE THAT I WOULD THROW BACK AT THOSE WHO 16:44:58 HAVE CRITICIZED US FOR USING THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THE 16:45:07 MIRANDA REQUIREMENT. TO SAY, WELL, WHAT IS YOUR PROOF 16:45:11 THAT IF HE WERE WHISKED OFF TO A MILITARY FACILITY, QUESTIONED BY 16:45:16 MILITARY PEOPLE, EVEN WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF A LAWYER, THAT 16:45:20 THE INFORMATION YOU WOULD RECEIVE WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE 16:45:23 VOLUMINOUS, WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER? 16:45:28 THERE ARE PSYCHOLOGISTS WHO WE'VE CONSULTED WHO SAY THAT, 16:45:30 YOU KNOW, THE PRESENCE OF MILITARY PEOPLE IN UNIFORM MAKES 16:45:39 THEM PERHAPS WARRIOR-LIKE, I DON'T KNOW. 16:45:41 YOU KNOW, THERE ARE -- AGAIN, I WOULD TRY TO LOOK AT THE FACTS 16:45:47 AND THE EXPERIENCES THAT WE HAVE HAD, AND THE USE OF THE CRIMINAL 16:45:55 JUSTICE SYSTEM TO GET INFORMATION FROM ABDULMUTALLAB, 16:46:01 FROM ZAZI, FROM HEDLEY, FROM A WHOLE HAVE A RIGHT OF CASES THAT 16:46:06 WE HAVE HAD THIS YEAR, I THINK SHOWS THE EFFICACY OF THAT 16:46:11 SYSTEM AND THE EFFICACY OF THAT APPROACH. 16:46:14 >> OKAY. WELL, I -- MY -- MY POINT IS 16:46:18 THAT THE PREMISE THAT'S I THINK ASSUMED IN THIS LINE OF 16:46:25 QUESTIONING THAT INFORMATION IS BETTER WHEN THE PERSON IS NOT 16:46:28 MIRANDIZED AS OPPOSED TO WHEN THEY ARE MIRANDIZED IS NOT 16:46:32 PROVEN AND IS CONTRADICTED IN A WHOLE LOT OF TESTIMONY, 16:46:36 INCLUDING YOURS HERE TODAY. WE JUST HAD THREE BELLS. 16:46:39 THAT MEANS WE HAVE A VOTE IN -- WE HAVE 15 MINUTES TO VOTE. 16:46:44 IT WILL PROBABLY LAST LONGER THAN THAT THE. 16:46:46 WE'RE GOING TO DIVIDE UP THE REMAINING TIME BETWEEN MYSELF 16:46:49 AND THE OTHER MEMBERS THAT ARE HERE ROUGHLY EQUALLY SO IT WILL 16:46:51 BE KIND OF A RAPID FIRE HERE, MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND THEN 16:46:55 AFTER THAT THEN WE'RE GOING TO ADJOURN THE HEARING. 16:47:00 I WANT TO GET ON THE RECORD CLEARLY THAT THERE HAVE BEEN A 16:47:06 SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF TERRORIST CASES TRIED IN ARTICLE III 16:47:13 COURTS DURING DIFFERENT ADMINISTRATIONS, DEMOCRAT, 16:47:17 REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATIONS. 16:47:18 IS THAT CORRECT, SIR, AND CAN YOU GIVE US A LITTLE DETAIL ON 16:47:22 THAT? >> YEAH, THAT'S ABSOLUTELY 16:47:25 CORRECT. THERE WERE TERRORISM CASES THAT 16:47:27 WERE TRIED IN ARTICLE III COURTS IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. 16:47:32 I DON'T HAVE THE EXACT NUMBER HERE, BUT I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S 16:47:36 CLOSE TO ABOUT 150 OR SO. YOU KNOW, RAMSEY YOUSEF, THE 16:47:41 ORIGINAL WORLD TRADE CENTER BOMBER WAS TRADE IN ARTICLE III 16:47:47 COURT, THE BLIND SHEIKH. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF 16:47:50 HIGH-PROFILE TERRORISM CASES THAT WERE TRIED SUCCESSFULLY. 16:47:52 >> IN ARTICLE III COURTS, IN THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION, IN THE 16:47:57 BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND NOW IN PRESIDENT OBAMA'S 16:47:58 ADMINISTRATION. >> RIGHT, THAT'S CORRECT. 16:48:00 >> TERROR SUSPECTS TRIED IN ARTICLE III COURTS, CONVICTED? 16:48:03 >> CONVICTED, YES. >> AND SERVING TIME IN -- 16:48:07 >> FEDERAL PRISONS. >> FEDERAL PRISONS IN THE UNITED 16:48:10 STATES. THANK YOU. 16:48:13 WHITE COLLAR CRIME, MR. SECRETARY, QUICKLY. 16:48:17 THERE IS A LOT OF INTEREST IN THE EXTENT TO WHICH CRIMINAL, 16:48:26 FRAUDULENT CONDUCT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE 16:48:30 FINANCIAL CRISIS THAT THE COUNTRY WAS JUST EXPERIENCING 16:48:33 COMING THROUGH AND TRYING TO FASHION REGULATIONS TO PREVENT. 16:48:37 CAN YOU SPEAK TO YOUR DEPARTMENT'S ADDRESSING THAT 16:48:43 QUESTION, AND WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THAT, OF YOUR INVESTIGATIONS? 16:48:46 >> WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER A FINANCIAL FRAUD ENFORCEMENT TASK 16:48:50 FORCE THAT MARIS A GROUP OF FEDERAL AGENCIES WITH OUR 16:49:03 COUNTERPARTS. >> IS THAT THE FRAUD ENFORCEMENT 16:49:07 TASK FORCE? >> THAT'S RIGHT, WITH STATE 16:49:10 ATTORNEYS TO LOOK AT A VARIETY, EVERYTHING FROM MORTGAGE FRAUD 16:49:14 TO SECURITIES FRAUD. A CASE JUST BROUGHT YESTERDAY IN 16:49:17 THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK INVOLVING A BANK AND ONE OF 16:49:23 THE FIRST T.A.R.P. CASES, A T.A.R.P. CRIMINAL CASES WAS 16:49:27 BROUGHT BY THE -- BY THE FINANCIAL FRAUD ENFORCEMENT TASK 16:49:31 FORCE, SO THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS VERY PROUD IN SCOPE TO LOOK 16:49:35 AT THE ENTIRETY OF FINANCIAL FRAUD ACTIVITY THAT MAY HAVE 16:49:42 CONTRIBUTED TO THE -- TO THE ECONOMIC DOWNFALL THAT WE SAW, 16:49:46 BUT TO THE EXTENT THAT THESE CRIMES EXIST, WE ARE DETERMINED 16:49:50 TO -- TO FIND THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE AND TO HOLD THEM 16:49:58 ACCOUNTABLE. >> THE TASK FORCE INCLUDING THE 16:50:00 TREASURY DEPARTMENT, H.U.D., S.E.C. AND VARIOUS INSPECTORS 16:50:04 GENERAL. IT LOOKS LIKE A BROAD BASE. 16:50:06 DOES YOUR BUDGET REQUEST ANTICIPATE GREATER ACTIVITY WITH 16:50:09 REGARD TO THAT TASK FORCE GOING INTO 2011? 16:50:16 >> YES. WE HAVE INCREASES WITH REGARD TO 16:50:22 CORPORATE FRAUD OF AN 11% INCREASE AND AN INCREASE REQUEST 16:50:29 OF 23%. >> IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ADAM 16:50:33 WALSH ACT, MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE ADAM WALSH ACT PASSED IN 16:50:36 2006 AS YOU KNOW. BUT WE'RE STILL STRUGGLING TO 16:50:39 FULLY IMPLEMENT IT DUE TO A LACK OF FUNDING. 16:50:44 HAS THE DEPARTMENT QUANTIFIED WHAT IT WOULD COST YOU TO FULLY 16:50:46 FUND AND IMPLEMENT THE ADAM WALSH ACT? 16:50:51 IF YOU HAVE NOT, COULD YOU SUBMIT THAT FOR THE RECORD? 16:50:54 >> SURE. RATHER THAN TRY TO -- LET ME 16:50:56 SUBMIT SOMETHING FOR THE RECORD JUST SO THAT I CAN BE MORE 16:50:59 PRECISE IN MY ANSWER. >> I WAS -- JUST TO GET A LITTLE 16:51:04 SUPPORT ON THE RECORD FROM THE EXECUTIVE FOR ADAM WALSH I WAS 16:51:08 HARDENED TO HEAR THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA RECENTLY COMMITTED TO JOHN 16:51:13 WALSH HE WOULD GET THE ACT FULLY FUNDED. 16:51:17 ALTHOUGH CLEARLY THE 2011 REQUEST DOESN'T DO THAT, DO YOU 16:51:20 HAVE A STRATEGIC PLAN OR IS ONE BEING DEVELOPED TO RAMP UP THE 16:51:24 PROGRAM OVER TIME? >> YEAH. 16:51:26 WE ARE DETERMINED TO MAKE REAL THE ADAM WALSH ACT. 16:51:30 AS THE PRESIDENT INDICATED, WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT A 20% 16:51:33 INCREASE IN FUNDING FOR NEXT YEAR. 16:51:35 AND I THINK THAT YEAR OVER YEAR, WE WILL BE LOOKING AT THOSE 16:51:39 KINDS OF INCREASES, EVEN IN SPITE OF THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN 16:51:45 THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH AND THE DEFICIT REDUCTION WE HAVE TO 16:51:49 ENGAGE IN. >> YOU'RE GOING TO SUBMIT FOR 16:51:50 THE RECORD WHAT IT WILL COST TO FULLY IMPLEMENT THAT ACT? 16:51:54 >> YES, I WILL. >> AND IF YOU WOULD, YOUR PLAN 16:51:56 FOR FULLY RAMPING IT UP AND HOW MANY YEARS THAT WOULD TAKE. 16:52:00 LET ME NOTE QUICKLY WITH -- CERTAINLY WITH APPROVAL, AND I 16:52:04 APPLAUD YOUR INTEREST AND THE DEPARTMENT'S BUDGET REQUEST WITH 16:52:07 REGARD TO INDIAN NATION'S LEADERSHIP COUNCIL, YOUR 16:52:12 ESTABLISHMENT OF THAT, AND I FEEL CONFIDENT IT WILL HELP THE 16:52:16 DEPARTMENT COORDINATE TRIBAL LEADERS AND BE MORE RESPONSIVE 16:52:19 TO THEIR NEWS AND CAMPAIGN. I THINK WE ALL UNDERSTAND THE 16:52:25 AMBIGUITIES AND JURISDICTIONAL DIFFICULTIES OF LAW ENFORCEMENT 16:52:28 ON INDIAN TERRITORY AND THE ATROCIOUS CONSEQUENCES THAT THAT 16:52:37 RESULTS IN. THIS COMMITTEE CERTAINLY -- OUR 16:52:43 BILL LAST YEAR REFLECTED OUR INTEREST IN INCREASING RESOURCES 16:52:48 FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT IN INDIAN TERRITORY AND EVEN GIVEN THESE 16:52:51 JURISDICTIONAL CHALLENGES. AND I WANT TO COMPLIMENT YOU ON 16:52:55 YOUR BUDGET BECAUSE YOU HAVE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED FUNDING 16:52:59 FOR MAYBE ONE OF THE MOST UNDERPAID ATTENTION TO ISSUES IN 16:53:03 THE COUNTRY WITH REGARD TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. 16:53:09 MR. WOLF? >> I THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. 16:53:12 I'M GOING TO SPEND A LOT OF QUESTIONS, FOR THE RECORD. 16:53:15 BUT ON THE ISSUE OF TIMELINESS, THE PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT MATERIALS 16:53:20 PROVIDED TO THE CONGRESS LAST FULL STATED THAT THE PRINCIPAL 16:53:25 FUNCTION OF INTERROGATIONS OF HIGH VALUE DETAINEES IS QUOTE, 16:53:28 INTELLIGENCE GATHERING RATHER THAN LAW ENFORCEMENT. 16:53:31 SECONDLY, I'VE TALKED TO A LOT OF PEOPLE, SO MANY AT THE 16:53:34 DEPARTMENT WHO ARE EXPERTS, THEY SAY YOU MISSED IT ON THE 16:53:39 TIMELINESS. SECONDLY TO SHOWN PICTURES OF 16:53:42 GUANTANAMO PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN SENT BACK, TO SHOW PICTURES OF 16:53:44 THE CHRISTMAS DAY BOMBER, COULD HAVE SAID DID YOU SEE THIS MAN, 16:53:47 DID YOU SEE THIS MAN, DID YOU SEE THIS PERSON. 16:53:49 YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DO THAT. 16:53:52 ALSO, WHAT LOCATION WERE YOU IN? WERE YOU IN THIS LOCATION? 16:53:56 WHAT BUILDING WERE YOU IN? WHAT ADDRESS? 16:53:59 WHO DID YOU SEE? WHO WERE YOU WITH? 16:54:01 WHO ELSE WAS IN THE CLASS? THERE'S SO MANY THINGS THAT WERE 16:54:06 MISSED THAT COULD HAVE BEEN -- AND DID YOU TALK TO -- SO THERE 16:54:11 WAS AN OPPORTUNITY THAT WAS MISSED AND WE'LL NEVER GET IT 16:54:14 BACK AGAIN. >> THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. 16:54:16 >> YEAH. IT IS TRUE. >> IT IS NOT TRUE. 16:54:18 >> WE MISSED OPPORTUNITIES. >> THAT IS NOT TRUE. 16:54:20 >> WELL, IT IS TRUE! >> I KNOW. 16:54:23 >> I SAY IT IS TRUE AND YOU SAY IT ISN'T TRUE. 16:54:25 PEOPLE THAT I TALKED TO SAY YOU MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY, YOU NEVER 16:54:30 HAD THE PICTURES WITH YOU TO SHOW THEM IN DETROIT AT THAT 16:54:33 TIME. >> IT IS NOT TRUE. 16:54:34 >> YOU NEVER HAD THE PICTURES TO SHOW. 16:54:38 LASTLY, I'M GOING TO READ SOMETHING -- 16:54:40 >> FOR THE RECORD, THAT'S NOT TRUE. 16:54:41 >> I BELIEVE IT IS BASED ON THE INFORMATION I HAVE. 16:54:43 ON THE PRISON RAPE THING I'M GOING TO END BY READING THIS. 16:54:45 THIS IS FROM HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH. NO ESCAPE. 16:54:50 MALE RAPE IN U.S. PRISONS. PREFACE, OF A SENTENCE FOR A DUI 16:54:56 OFFENSE, MY THIRD ONE. WHEN I FIRST CAME TO PRISON, I 16:54:59 HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT. CERTAINLY NONE OF THIS. 16:55:04 I'M A TALL MALE WHO UNFORTUNATELY HAS A SMALL AMOUNT 16:55:07 OF FEMININE CHARACTERISTICS AND VERY SHY. 16:55:10 THESE CHARACTERISTICS HAVE GOTTEN ME RAPED SO MANY 16:55:15 TIMES I HAVE NO MORE FEELING PHYSICALLY. 16:55:17 I'VE BEEN RAPED BY UP TO SEVEN MEN AT ONE TIME. 16:55:20 I'VE HAD KNIVES AT MY HEAD AND THROAT. 16:55:22 I'VE FOUGHT AND I'VE BEEN BEAT SO HARD THAT I DIDN'T EVEN THINK 16:55:26 I'D SEE STRAIGHT AGAIN. ONE TIME WHEN I REFUSED TO ENTER 16:55:28 A CELL I WAS BRUTALLY ATTACKED BY STAFF AND TAKEN TO 16:55:33 SEGREGATION. I ONLY WANTED TO PREVENT THE 16:55:35 SAME AND WORSE BY NOT LOCKING UP WITH MY CELL MATE. 16:55:40 THERE'S NO SUPERVISION AFTER LOCKDOWN. 16:55:41 I WAS GIVEN A CONDUCT REPORT. I EXPLAINED TO THE HEARING 16:55:43 OFFICER WHAT THE ISSUE WAS. HE TOLD ME OFF THE RECORD HE 16:55:46 SUGGESTED I FIND A MAN I COULD WILLINGLY HAVE SEX WITH TO 16:55:49 PREVENT THESE THINGS FROM HAPPENING. 16:55:51 I REQUESTED PROTECTIVE CUSTODY ONLY TO BE DENIED. 16:55:53 IT IS NOT AVAILABLE HERE. HE ALSO SAID THERE WAS NOWHERE 16:55:57 TO RUN AND IT WOULD BE BEST FOR ME TO ACCEPT THINGS. 16:56:01 I PROBABLY HAVE AIDS NOW. I'VE HAD DIFFICULTY RAISING FOOD 16:56:04 TO MY MOUTH FROM SHAKING AFTER NIGHTMARES OR THINKING HOW HARD 16:56:07 THIS ALL IS. I'VE LAID DOWN WITHOUT PHYSICAL 16:56:10 FIGHT TO PREVENT SO MUCH DAMAGE AND STRUGGLES THAT WHEN FIGHTING 16:56:13 IT'S CAUSED MY HEART AND MY SPIRIT TO BE RAPED AS WELL. 16:56:17 SOMETHING I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL EVER FORGIVE MYSELF FOR. 16:56:19 THIS HAS GONE ON. THE LONGER YOU DELAY IT, THE 16:56:23 MORE THIS WILL HAPPEN. I YIELD BACK. 16:56:24 >> AGAIN, FOR THE RECORD, I SHARE -- AS I INDICATED BEFORE, 16:56:29 THE CONCERN THAT YOU HAVE EXPRESSED. 16:56:32 THAT STORY IS A HORRIBLE ONE. AND WE ARE COMMITTED TO DOING 16:56:35 ALL THAT WE CAN AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN TO DEAL WITH THOSE KINDS OF 16:56:41 SITUATIONS. >> THANK YOU. 16:56:47 MR. CHAIRMAN. MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL AND MR. 16:56:51 CHAIRMAN, IT'S MY CONCERN AND I KNOW THE CONCERN OF MY 16:56:54 CONSTITUENTS AND COLLEAGUES, NOT JUST THE QUALITY OF THE 16:56:56 INFORMATION THAT WE WOULD OBTAIN WITH OR WITHOUT MIRANDA, IT'S 16:56:59 OUR WORRY IS THAT THESE PEOPLE WILL BE RELEASED ON 16:57:02 TECHNICALITIES. THAT THEY WILL GO FREE BECAUSE 16:57:05 THEY WERE GIVEN CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS BY THIS 16:57:09 ADMINISTRATION THAT FOREIGN NATIONALS IN TIME OF WAR HAVE 16:57:12 NOT BEEN GIVEN PREVIOUSLY. I'M STILL TRYING TO RUN DOWN THE 16:57:14 TWO INDIVIDUALS YOU GAVE ME. MR. CHAIRMAN, I DO KNOW FOR A 16:57:18 FACT THAT RICHARD REID WAS ARRESTED AT A TIME WHEN THERE 16:57:21 WAS NO MILITARY COMMISSION. THAT'S WHY HE WAS SENT TO 16:57:25 CIVILIAN COURT. I'M NOT -- YOUR TESTIMONY IS, 16:57:28 MR. ATTORNEY GENERAL, THAT SIDDIQUI WAS SENT TO CIVILIAN 16:57:34 COURT AT THE TIME THERE WERE MILITARY COMMISSIONS IN 16:57:37 EXISTENCE? >> I'D HAVE TO LOOK AT THE 16:57:40 DATES. I BELIEVE THAT'S CORRECT. 16:57:42 >> OKAY. WE'RE VERY, VERY SHORT ON TIME. 16:57:44 MR. CHAIRMAN, I WANTED TO ALSO ASK IF I COULD THE ATTORNEY 16:57:50 GENERAL IF THE CHARGES AGAINST KSM ARE DISMISSED BECAUSE OF 16:57:54 SOME LEGAL ARGUMENT THAT HE RAISES UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OR 16:57:58 SUPREME COURT CASE LAW, HIS CHARGES ARE DISMISSED BY THE 16:58:01 FEDERAL COURT, AND HE IS ORDERED RELEASED, I THINK I'VE HEARD YOU 16:58:04 SAY THAT YOU'RE GOING TO -- THE ADMINISTRATION WOULD ORDER THAT 16:58:06 HE CONTINUE TO BE HELD. IS THAT CORRECT? 16:58:08 >> YEAH. I DON'T -- FIRST OF ALL, IN 16:58:11 TERMS OF THE PREMISE, I DON'T THINK THERE IS AN INSTANCE OF A 16:58:16 TERRORISM CASE WHERE SOMEBODY -- A TERRORIST CHARGED IN AN 16:58:19 ARTICLE 3 COURT GOT OFF ON A SO-CALLED TECHNICALITY. 16:58:22 I DON'T KNOW OF ONE CASE. >> EXCUSE ME. 16:58:25 I'M TALKING ABOUT KSM. YOU'VE ASKED -- YOU HAVE ORDERED 16:58:28 THAT HE BE SENT TO BE TRIED IN A CIVILIAN COURT. 16:58:30 >> THAT'S RIGHT FINE. >> REGARDLESS OF WHERE THAT 16:58:32 TAKES PLACE -- >> I'LL CERTAINLY DEAL WITH THAT 16:58:35 QUESTION. I'M JUST DEALING WITH WHAT YOU 16:58:36 SAID AT FIRST. I DON'T WANT TO LET THAT GO 16:58:39 UNREBUTTED. >> I'M SORRY IF YOU 16:58:44 MISUNDERSTOOD. >> LET'S LOOK AT THE FACTS AND 16:58:45 LET'S LOOK AT HISTORY. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AS FAR AS I 16:58:48 KNOW A TERRORISM TRIAL THAT ENDED IN A PRETRIAL RELEASE OF 16:58:52 SOMEBODY ON THE BASIS OF SOME TECHNICALITY. 16:58:55 >> IN A MILITARY TRIBUNAL. >> IN AN ARTICLE 3 COURT. 16:58:58 >> OKAY. BUT THAT'S THE DANGER WE EXPOSE 16:59:01 OURSELVES TO. THAT'S OUR CONCE
