Holder Undercut FBI by Giving Tsarnaev Miranda Rights
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 26, 2013 | Ken Klukowski

Posted on 04/27/2013 5:39:18 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Updating our earlier report:

Details are emerging that when U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler read Dhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, she went to his hospital room accompanied by a federal public defender (meaning taxpayer-funded) and an assistant U.S. attorney from the Massachusetts prosecutor’s office.

Reports say the FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were “stunned” when this judicial officer and lawyers from both sides showed up to read him his rights. Tsarnaev was providing what the FBI called valuable intelligence, when he was read his rights and then immediately stopped talking.

As we’ve explained before, the only danger with denying someone Miranda rights is that whenever the Constitution would require those rights to be announced, anything the defendant says after that point cannot be used to convict him in court. When the public-safety exception to Miranda applies—as it does here—police generally have about 48 hours of questioning the suspect before a judge would say the agents have had enough time to deal with imminent threats and therefore must now administer Miranda. The FBI was only 16 hours into those 48 hours when Miranda was given.....

Imagine having done that and not yet realizing that such behavior puts you on the list of suspects to be investigated.

If your motive was to assist in the perpetration of a crime it really doesn't matter that you were officially a magistrate judge or Attorney General ~ you will eventually go down for it. Just a matter of time.

When the FBI stops whining and starts investigating McCarthy style, they will have some respect returned to their Dpt. Until then, they contribute to the downfall of America through violating their sworn oaths.

When 4 massive airliners slammed into a NYC skyscraper and other unfortunate destinations, and killed over 3000 Americans, a lot of "smart" people said, "Bush was behind all that."

Now we have the First Lady visiting a "person of interest" in the hospital, we have that "person of interest" shuffled out of the country, and we have the feds swooping in to tell the remaining suspect that he better not say anything to anyone about anything.

And if anyone were to say, "I think Obama is standing with the Muslims" they would be branded as a stark lunatic. Such a thought is unthinkable, right?

The work of big American law firms on behalf of al Qaeda is drawing new attention since
Attorney General Eric Holder decided this month that Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who
orchestrated the murder of over 3,000 9-11, is coming to New York City for trial. Holder

Something is very wrong here. The FBI is a cabinet of the DOJ along with that Judge. The Zippy regime is trying to make this "coverup" look like a failed investigation.

“Now just imagine ANY other previous administration doing this and the uproar that would ensue.”

If these bombings had happened under a Republican administration, the Democrats and press would have been demanding the resignation of the both the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Director of the FBI for incompetence the minute the news came out about Russian warning the US about the brother and the FBI having interviewed him. Pelosi and Reid would be conducting hearings and press conferences daily.

At this point we hear crickets chirping from the Republicans. Obama, Holder and Napolitano must be laughing at Boehner and McConnell.

"At this point we hear crickets chirping from the Republicans. Obama, Holder and Napolitano must be laughing at Boehner and McConnell."

Boehner is preoccupied with the bottle he keeps in his drawer, and McConnell is too busy duct-taping the Basset hound folds of his face so they don't droop onto his desk.

We have the enemy inside the White House. As far as I'm concerned, those gutless quislings are every bit as complicit if they don't speak up.

My understanding is when a criminal complaint is filed against a suspect, THEN THE LAW REQUIRES A JUDGE TO IMMEDIATELY MIRANDIZE the suspect.

The actions of CZAR B.O. and his capo, the ATTORNEY GENERAL, were as predictable as the movement of the hands on a clock. They wanted the suspect to shut up and the best way to do this was to charge him with a criminal complaint!

They are the leaders of the Democrap Party and are leading the coup to destroy our country!

The FBI is not a stand-alone agency. The DOJ has oversight of the FBI, always has. And, as has always been, the DOJ can shut down any FBI investigation.

I wonder if the magistrate and the Just-us official were ALONE with Dhokhar Tsarnaev when they “read” him his Miranda rights.
I also wonder what else they “read” him. I suspect it was something along the lines of:

“Shut the hell up and we will take care of this. Your survival depends on you doing as we tell you.”

I’m no fan of Holder’s Justice Department, but it’s kind of silly to suggest that anyone “undercut” the FBI when that agency had demonstrated such rank incompetence with these particular individuals in the past. I have no evidence to suggest that the FBI would have been any more successful in questioning the younger mutant than they had been when dealing with the older one a couple of years ago.

This is true.

So.... why the big ruckus ? Why did DOJ use a 'patsy' judge and why is the FBI throwing a public fit ?

Conservative Minority Since 2006 Elections.

Precisely. That is the date the leftists completed their take over of America, after years of Bush bashing and he never standing up and defending his policies and actions. That was when I changed my lifelong registration from GOP to Independent. I have been wandering in the wilderness ever since but continue to hope for a Tea Party to officially register as a political party.

“U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler read Dhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights...”

Reported as a member of the federal judiciary intervening and reading Miranda rights. On its face, a member of the juduciary inserting herself physically during the actual interrogation seems unprecedented. The investigators should have placed her and the defense attorneys under arrest for obstruction. This whole thing makes the keystone cops look good.

In addition, the left is in a vice. During Bush II the left position was clear - every terrorist, no matter where apprehended needed to be Mirandized. It is no surprise that Mirandization took place in this case. What seems clear, is that like Fort Hood, the left story-line is that there is no connection betw islam and such attacks.

“when a criminal complaint is filed against a suspect, THEN THE LAW REQUIRES A JUDGE TO IMMEDIATELY MIRANDIZE the suspect.”

When was the criminal complaint filed in this case?

Since when does the judge travel to the suspect?

I believe at the first appearance, in a court room, with the complain filed, the judge would inform the accused of his rights.
