He was commenting on how so many of the people surrounding Trump Russia investigation ended up with obstruction and/or lying to an FBI agent charges. He was pretty upset about it and he was obviously not pleased with the behavior of the FBI and their conduct during their questioning of suspects.
Here was his takeaway point…Never talk to FBI personnel without an attorney present. He then repeated it and made clear that id din’t matter if they were talking to you as a suspect, person of interest, or even a witness.
So why an attorney present?
FBI personnel are highly trained interrogators. And it is well documented that the training includes “psychological manipulation.” Now, don’t read this sentence if you don’t want to see a vulger curse word…Special Agents commonly refer to this psychological manipulation as a “mind fuck.” Yeah, that means they know how to, and use, psychological manipulation (screwing with your mind psychologically) to get the answers they want. They also use environmental manipulation as well to make a person more susceptible to psychological manipulation. They have also been known to use violence as an interrogation method.
So Whitaker said first…Always be truthful with an FBI agent.Then he said…Always have a lawyer with you whenever answering questions by the FBI.
Why? Because anything other than the truth is a felony.
Interesting to note…it is perfectly legal for an FBI agent to lie while asking questions. Yup, FBI agents lie while asking questions and it is perfectly legal for them to do so.
Another trick they use is the threat of (i.e. blackmail) a long list of charges that you will be charged with…and/or family members will be charged. That extortion attempt is to get you to admit to whatever they are looking for (normally a less charge than used in the extortion attempt)…whether you are guilty of it or not. Remember…they, the FBI and federal prosecutors, are under no legal, moral, or professional requirement to prove you innocent. Their sole goal is a conviction, or plea deal, for a crime.
So…roll all of this into one huge ball of crap and a long history of infamous acts, including perjury, FBI agents are simply not to be trusted…ever! And that is from former Acting United States Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. Anytime the FBI would ever want to talk with you…have your lawyer there with you…a criminal defense lawyer. Why? Because a criminal defense lawyer knows the FBI tricks, lies, and mental manipulation techniques…and will prevent you from becoming another victim of the FBI. If you are actually guilty of something, that criminal defense attorney will ensure that due process is actually applied according tot he Constitutional rights we have as US citizens.
So, do you have to answer questions asked by the FBI? Yes, but only to identify yourself. Other than that you do not have to answer questions. And you have the right to have an attorney present during any questioning.
So, if Special Agents attempted to question me…about anything:
- I would only identify myself.
- I would politely inform them that I want attorney present before I answer any questions.
- I would not, never, ever, believe a single word that comes out of their mouth because they have a legal right to lie to you about anything. And they are trained to lie very, very skillfully.
- I would then not answer any question other than stating “I want an attorney.”
- Repeat steps 1 – 4……..no deviation….period!
So, you may want to doubt me…okay, fine. By ask yourself this, why would former Acting United States Attorney General Matthew Whitaker say, “Never talk to FBI personnel without an attorney present!”?
If you are honest with yourself you will know the answer.
And how do I know this to be true? Personal, first-hand experience. Yup, you read that right. Maybe one day I will write about it.
