FBI Might Be Investigating Matt Bevin

FBI Might Be Investigating Matt Bevin

>>The FBI is looking into the pardons that
Matt Bevin, the former Kentucky Governor has granted. And he granted these pardons right before
his governorship was up. As we all know, he lost his re-election bid. And what we know is that a state representative
has disclosed that the FBI has reached out to him. And here’s what he has to say. State Representative Chris Harris told reporters
that a criminal investigator contacted him last week and asked what he knew about Bevin’s
pardons. Now, I wanna be clear about something for
those who maybe haven’t followed this story from the beginning. Matt Bevin didn’t pardon non-violent offenders,
maybe people who were caught with possession of marijuana. Now, in that case, those pardons would be
completely fine. That’s something that we’re very supportive
of because non-violent individuals who had possession of drugs do not belong behind bars. What he did do was pardon convicted felons
who were convicted of violent crimes. Things like homicide and rape. Let me give you more. Harris did not elaborate on what questions
were asked by this investigator. And he declined to say which law enforcement
agency contacted him. But here’s what he did say, I can confirm
that I’ve been contacted by someone looking into the pardons that were issued by Governor
Bevin on his way out the door. The impression I got is there was an investigation
ramping up. It may be a formal investigation or it may
not be a formal investigation, Harris told the Courier Journal. It may be just calling to see if there’s anything
there to warrant a full investigation. I can tell you, at least, there are questions
being asked. Now, two sources with knowledge of the inquiry
to the Courier Journal on Monday that an FBI agent had spoken with Harris. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment, say
the agency could neither confirm nor deny the existence of said investigation when reached
late Monday night. So just to go back and give you specific examples
of the type of people, Bevin pardoned, the courier Journal reported that Patrick Baker’s
brother held a campaign, Patrick Baker was one of the people that was pardoned. He was convicted of homicide. His brother actually held a campaign fundraiser
at his home for Bevin in July of 2018 that raised $21,500. The former governor also received a letter
from business executive Terry Forcht, one of the state’s Republican mega-donors, urging
Bevin to pardon Baker.>>Okay, got it. So we talked a little bit about this on Friday,
but that’s a really important development. About Forcht. So that information was not available to us
at that time. And so now the Courier Journal in Kentucky
is reporting that there’s actually over 650 people that he has pardoned or commuted the
sentence out. And one of my theories on Friday was that
part of the reason that he pardoned so many people is to hide the donors that he pardoned
in the middle. And so some of the pardons are so heinous,
as we’re gonna get to in a second, that it kind of distracts you from the Baker pardon. And Baker is a guy who committed murder and
tampered with evidence, impersonated a police offer and did a robbery. And this is not a pardon of a guy from, he
did it back in 87′ or so. No, he did it in 2017, two years ago. And so his family’s very well connected, gives,
what I call, legalized bribes, to Bevin. Now the media oftentimes says, no, those are
not bribes. Or in fact, every time they say, no, those
are legitimate campaign contributions. Well, when these guys give him $21,500, and
then they say, hey, wouldn’t it be great if our brother was out of prison? And then all of a sudden his brother comes
out of prison? What the hell do you call that? That is a bribe. And by the way, it’s a bribe when these guys
do it so, so bright when Exxon Mobil does it, when Pfizer does it when any company does
it, it’s obviously a bribe. But Forcht is a super important development
because he has given at least $2.8 million to state and national political causes over
the last 40 years. Including more than $100,000 to Bevins campaign
and in an inauguration funds. So it’s not just 21,000 it’s Forcht who is
a mega donor won a mega donor calls you and he’s bribed the party to the tune of $2.8
million. You’re gonna do what he says. It doesn’t matter how heinous, doesn’t matter
how awful, l you will do as you’re told. These politicians are not leaders, their followers,
their water boys, their errand boys, for the rich and for multinational corporations.>>Yep.>>So when Forched says jump, Bevin says how
high and how many killers you need me to pardon because I’m here to serve you. And that’s exactly what happened here.>>Yeah, that’s exactly right. And as I mentioned earlier some of the convictions
were for rapists, child rapists and recently Bevin was asked to explain his reasons for
party need people like that. And he’s gonna explain why in the clip that
we’re about to show you. But look, before we go to it, I have to say
it was disturbing for me to listen to. So I wanna give you a fair warning before
we go to it.>>And the guy is Mico Schoettle and he raped
a nine year old girl. Okay, and now you’ll see Bevin calls a speculative
or whatever, you’ll see the exact words you use in a second. Remember, he was convicted. It’s not at all speculative, he was convicted. Now, let’s listen to Bevin talking about it.>>A child rapist though. That is the lowest form of human life.>>Absolute scum of the earth.>>For people who have raped children, anybody
who volitionally assaults another person. And any kind of a sexual assault in particular,
and especially on a child, to me, is reprehensible.>>How could you.>>To assume, however, that everybody who
has ever been accused of this And even convicted of this has in fact done this is a big assumption
to make. It really is. There was a second one. This was a guy named Mika Scotelli or Sco,
I don’t even know how to pronounce his last name. Let me tell you about this fellow. He was accused of sexually assaulting repeatedly
for over the course of almost two years. Well, over year, every single Wednesday, I
believe it was, repeatedly sexually assaulting her and her sister, this girl claimed. She said that every week, he came in and sexually
assaulted me and my sister. Well, the same sister who is the same room
every time, denied all of it. These girls both were examined medically,
they were examined physically. There was zero evidence, zero. Both their hymens were intact. This is perhaps more specific than people
would want. But trust me, if you have been repeatedly
sexually violated as a small child by an adult, there are going to be repercussions of that
physically and medically. There was zero evidence of that.>>Jesus Christ. Okay, other than being monstrous, he’s of
course, wrong as we pointed out on Friday. Only 2.1% of subjects examined had visible
lesions on the hymen. In survey of pediatric child abuse rape cases. So 98% of the time the hymen is intact and
this guy’s like, what, what her hymen was intact, it’s fine. And after the guy was already convicted, the
first case he was talking about was a 15 year old that was raped so brutally that the child
had internal injuries. And they took pictures of it and put it on
social media.>>And he did the pardon anyway.>>Jeez.>>So I don’t know if he’s some sort of sadist,
and->>It’s disgusting, yeah, I mean, God, lowest
of the low, scum of the Earth, really, right? Where that money for your campaigns was way
more important than actual human lives. And hundreds and hundreds of pardons, right? Because he believes that these were, well,
this is the excuse he’s giving, that they were wrongful convictions. If he genuinely thought that, wouldn’t that
light a fire under him? Wouldn’t he want to do something about the
justice system if it’s that wrong that often?>>Yeah. Well, so I don’t know that he picked those
cases because he’s a particularly brutal and sadist guy. Or maybe it’s and, but or to kind of distract
people from the one he got bribed on. By my god, everybody’s talking about the nine
year old and a 15 year old and maybe not talking enough about the guy who, whose family did
the fundraising for them. Now look, I love that the FBI might be investigating
this, but if we’re being honest, what are they investing? In this country it’s legal to bribe politicians,
it’s called campaign contributions. There’s not a God damn thing you can do
about it. The Supreme Court says that that murderous
family was just talking to Bevin. And when Forcht gave 2.8 million dollars to
Republicans and $100,000 to Bevin, he was just using his freedom of speech to talk to
Bevin. That’s what the Supreme Court says Mitch McConnell
from the state of Kentucky same state is the biggest defender of that. He says no, no, no, no. When multinational corporations and rich donors
give us millions of dollars, they’re just talking to us. And they have a right to talk to us. So it is legal in this country to bribe politicians
that way. I know it seems shocking, but it’s absolutely
true. So I don’t know what the in the world they
would be investigating. So the problem is it that it’s illegal. The problem is that it’s legal. So that’s why I tell you guys about wolf-pac
all the time, wolf-pac.com because if you don’t get the money out of politics, what
the hell are we doing? I know other groups that care about money
in politics and they mean well but they say things like. Well, we gonna take action when there is a
big scandal. The whole thing is a scandal and can you get
a bigger scandal than this. To let murder and child rapists go because
of campaign contributions and what are we doing about it. What are we doing about it? What is the Republic party doing, they are
celebrating it. They are celebrating this bribery no way surpass,
if you’re a media person, and you say that the Republicans don’t celebrate these legalized
bribes, you’re a liar. You’re an absolute liar. Mitch McConnell and the Republican party love
this system where you can give unlimited campaign contributions to politicians through super
packs, fundraisers, wine caves, etc., which leaves me with the Democrats. Unfortunately, 80% of the Democratic party
also loves this system, also celebrates it. So spare me their fake outrage on this issue
for real Americans, by the way. 93% of us including Republican voters hate
this system. They know that is corruption but the band
marches on and pretends that Bevin is an outlier. Is some sort of unusual case. No, it’s the same exact thing as everyone
else, except instead of getting bribes to help the oil companies destroy the planet
as an example. Or from insurance companies to destroy our
healthcare system where by the way because of private insurance, 45,000 people a year
die, 45,000 people a year. But those who answer no, just campaign contributions,
right? In this case, it happens to be murderers and
rapists, but it’s a bribe any way you slice it.

    If he was going to do pardons, it’s shocking that he didn’t consider white collar criminals of convicts where there was doubt about their crimes where some agency had been actively fighting for a retrial.

  21. Daniel Vazquez says:

    Cenk hit it bullseye 🎯 when I heard about this it’s exactly what I thought. The FBI put him on notice now they just need to step back and watch who panics, phone calls, time money was received, what accounts went up and or down and a couple I wound mention here. I hope they nail this POS to the wall. He’s responsible DIRECTLY for what those he let out will do to others.

  23. Zero-One-One Zero-One says:

    FYI – Young children under ten years old DO NOT LIE about sexual assault. 96% of children are telling the truth. The 4% who lie do so because their parent coached them to do so for a custody battle. That is straight from the FBI statistics on child sexual assault. If your child says it happened to them, believe them. They ARE telling the truth. Avenge their abuse so they are not scarred for life. They will never forgive you if you do not, and who can blame them? You are their only protector.
    Bevin is an absolute creep.

  24. DrZaius3141 says:

    Accepting a pardon entails admitting guilt. So when he claims their innocence, he's contradicting the entire process.

  41. Hoogly Bart says:

    I don't get this whole pardon system. Where else in the world can a criminal be pardoned because it is politically acceptable right up to presidential level. Most other countries only ever pardon a hand full of wrongly convicted people in prison when the justice system got it wrong after years of investigation.

  42. Omego2K says:

    That 2.1% number didn't make sense to me so I looked it up. It's from a published article that references other published studies/articles. So basically a book review. The 2.1% number it references comes from a study that doesn't even mention the word hymen and it was an aggregate of boys and girls. The article quoted on this channel is a paraphrase of another article which is an actual study involving both males and females without any mention of the word hymen.

  49. Nichelle says:

    Maybe Matt is pardoning people like that because he’s guilty of doing stuff like that himself, just food for thought

  50. Nat Jac says:

    I would love to know what percentage of the pardoned people were people of color. Most likely most are white and pardoning them would reverse the felony and reinstating their right to vote in future elections ( which Im sure was another reason to increase the Republican vote).

  51. samoth adis says:

    Lock him up

  52. Maureen Perez says:

    I think Bevin pardoned these horrific criminals specifically to give "the finger salute" to the public who voted him out. I think he did it for a vindictive reason and no other.

  53. Peter -PxDemaR- Bergman says:

    Bevin is really a piece of shit! But a think it will catch up on him eventually…

    ​@UC9bkp3mXJfoXUX7UMd5-IOA i like capitalism, fine. but i think you are getting capitalism, which is an economical tool, for our Democracy and you are comparing it with Socialism and Communism. Sure they all affect our society. but not the same thing.
    and if you base you judgement on that, when China, in 2030 or 2040 passes US economics GDP, then will Communism be better for you then?
    If we are such and great country, and i believe so, why do we not have health care as a right. and have so many homeless and so many Billion airs.
    as Yang said, in the next 5 to 20 years you will see Tech-knowledge eat up, bastardize Capitalism ( was , capital, innovation and labor = product) ect, Now tech knowledge, will eat up labor, and capital will freely move. sure its great if you have lots of capital. I guess you will make out great. that maybe the way you want to live, not me.
    have you ever seen a ant carry food on its back, going back to its mount. It dose not carry a billion food. nor dose it need it.
    sure, money and power corrupts, and its the duty of government to regulate that.
    If you think of simple, capitalism, Dog eat dog, then only one entity will last. that is why we have anti trust laws….
    We live in a democratic society, laid out by the constitution. Government for the people by the people" // [power corrupts, not all but more than enough. thats why its the will of the people, or many. not for or by the few. 1% or .00001%.
    I am sure who are smart and lucky.
