Scott Horton Interviews Brandon Mayfield
Oregon attorney Brandon Mayfield discusses his persecution at the hands of the FBI, their holding him as a “material witness” in order to deny him basic due process, the false accusations linking him to the March 2004 train bombing in Madrid, Spain, how the FBI refused to budge on their crazy conspiracy theory until the Spanish authorities proved his innocence beyond doubt, the government’s use of “sneak and peek” warrants against him and his family, the chilling effect on the attorney-client privilege from new Justice Department “guidelines” and the prosecution of Lynn Stewart and how his lawsuits against the government have led a federal district court judge to strike two provisions from the PATRIOT Act.
