Great but errors sometimes when he gets out of his depth.

I love Andy McCarthy's insight. However, I recently listened to one where he mispoke on the nature of FBI interviews and on the report (FD-302). FBI Special Agents are paired not for one to interview and the other to "take notes". That's a practice of Assistant USAs and not the FBI. The FBI is taught that the primary interviewer is expected to also take the notes. In that way, the pace of the interview doesn't move faster than the person taking notes, which is always a problem with AUSAs, who think a "note taker" is like a transcriber. It's not. Second, the recording of interivews is much more complex than McCarthy suggests, but it reflects his lack of field experience. Ask him, would he expect an AUSA to record a Proffer session? Surely not, becuase then it would prove the AUSA was part of the evidenciary gathering process and has now become a witness. Third, many subjects become government witnesses. After hours of lying about their guilt they finally confess and flip for the government. How useful is such a witness to an AUSA, when the recording details each an every lie being told. Lastly, I agree that in-custody interrogations should probably be recorded. But they are few and far between. I love Andy, but in this area his experience and knowledge is truly limited and he mislead the audience.

Andy McCarthy is the smartest, nicest and most sane person in the world. My only complaint is that the podcast is not daily! But I won’t push my luck- Thank you, Andy.

Disgusted

After just watching the documentary Waco, which also refers to the Ruby Ridge debacle, not to mention the stuff that went on in the Obama years, I am strongly of the mind that the FBI has a whole lot of cleaning up to do. Thanks for your insights.
