1/I recently came across comments by #ChadWolf, former Acting DHS Secretary, to @axios in response to the @DHSOIG report that pertained to our client #BrianMurphy.

Let me clarify facts & respond directly given Wolf blatantly distorts the truth.

cc: @wbaidlaw
2/Wolf said:

"And finally, buried in the report is the fact that the grossly false whistleblower complaint against me was withdrawn"

It is true we withdrew Murphy's retaliation complaint as part of broad favorable settlement w/DHS. Given Murphy's career steps, this made sense.
3/Importantly, it did NOTHING to preclude DHS OIG from continuing its investigation, which it did & issued adverse findings against Wolf.

Total vindication for Murphy, one of the highest ranking #whistleblowers in US history.

#ElonsProblems - So Elon Musk's #TwitterTakeover coincides with #Tesla stock losing 35% of its value in five weeks. I know it will bounce back, but I feel like there's a little #karma in all this. :) Image
2/ #ElonMusk #ElonsProblems - #Freespeech most vociferous advocates seem the least likely to understand it. whistleblowers.org/news/national-…
3/ I actually truly appreciate #ElonMusk for #Tesla and #SpaceX. But I don't appreciate his Napoleonic overreach, name-calling, disregard for #freespeech or #whistleblowers. His legal problems are of his own making.

A #Thread - CAUTION, this one gets graphic.

There's lots of good cops, but want to know why the corrupt one get away with their shit as much as they do.

Simple...

Corruption/ self-preservation on the part of senior management teams & planned defamation on the integrity of
#whistleblowers.

In 1989 Bevin Perrin, a school teacher, was abducted and brutally murder in #HamOnt, #Canada.

A $30,000 reward was offered and paid. The suspects went to jail, until their conviction was overturn, due to misleading evidence, but that's a whole other story.
Fastforward to 2009. I'm handed paperwork which shows that $30,000 reward money wasn't given to the tipster, but the homicide Detectives kept it themselves.

Background revealed the majority of Det's were also stealing from the informant handling system and #Crimestoppers.

I've been quieter on Twitter than usual, but POGO's policy team has been toiling away to advance reforms through Congress to protect #whistleblowers and empower inspectors general. Those reforms are desperately needed to prevent waste and fraud:
marketwatch.com/story/5-of-the…
Next week, the @HSGAC will hold a hearing to consider three bills that would empower nonpartisan inspectors general to aggressively carry out their anti fraud and waste mission, without fear that it will lead to their firing. hsgac.senate.gov/hearings/09/29…
The House considered, and passed in a bipartisan vote, one of those three bills three months ago. I was honored to testify in support of that legislation - the IG Independence and Empowerment Act. pogo.org/testimony/2021…

Today is #NationalWhistleblowerDay. Please support #nationalsecurity #whistleblowers who have made some of the most important disclosures in the history of the United States, and have suffered tremendous consequences.
By definition whistleblowers reveal information in the public interest. They expose government misconduct, such as information about unconstitutional mass surveillance, torture, the secret drone war, foreign election interference, discrimination, civil and human rights abuses.

THREAD:

Το γηροκομείο #ΑγίαΣκέπη στα Χανιά βρέθηκε πρόσφατα στο επίκεντρο του ενδιαφέροντος, ύστερα από καταγγελίες για ύποπτους θανάτους & κακομεταχείριση των ηλικιωμένων.

Τι λένε άνθρωποι ― κλειδιά & αποκαλυπτικά έγγραφα που πηγαίνουν 10+ χρόνια πίσω;

reportersunited.gr/6016/oi-desmot…
Στα πλαίσια της έρευνας #GreyGold των @investigate_eu @reporters_gr για τα γηροκομεία στην Ευρώπη, ο @malichudis συνάντησε συγγενείς που έχασαν τους δικούς τους και πρώην εργαζόμενους που έγιναν #whistleblowers.

Οι μαρτυρίες τους είναι σοκαριστικές.⏬
Μια εξ αυτών είναι του Μανώλη Χουρδάκη. Όταν η μητέρα του πέθανε, η διοίκηση της #ΑγίαΣκέπη του είπε ότι ο θάνατός της οφειλόταν σε καρδιακή ανακοπή.

Εκταφή που έγινε ένα χρόνο μετά έδειξε πως η γυναίκα έφερε τραύμα στο κεφάλι ― για το οποίο ο Χουρδάκης δεν γνώριζε τίποτα.

In September 2020, @hootsuite came under widespread criticism over its agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made mere weeks after allegations of forced hysterectomies at @ICEgov detention centres surfaced
Following public pressure, the company backed out of the deal, and posted a lengthy statement from CEO @TomKeiser to their official @Twitter account that expressed regret over the internal divisions that the contract had created within the company. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hootsuite
Despite this public distancing from its earlier decision, over the next several weeks the company terminated numerous employees who had acted as #whistleblowers in bringing the contract's existence to light, sparking further public outrage and condemnation.

3/USAGM was fed agency torn apart by Trump loyalists incl #MichaelPack, #MoraNamdar, #EmilyNewman & others. They were to "drain the swamp". They WERE the swamp. In 30 years practicing law in DC, I have never seen such arrogance & vitriolic from so many.

(1) Thread #6: #SurfsideBuildingCollapse

I called it early on. This event has a ripple effect across the US for emergency management, public safety policy, and infrastructure. The "built environment."

My Surfside thread directory:
(2) I'm not "tooting my own horn." I'm doing what anyone else would do when they have information that others might not have, that could save one life, let alone hundreds of lives.

This building collapse is not new or unusual to folk outside the US who witnessed similar events.
(3) It's true that most people would believe "buildings don't just fall down in America," and in most cases, they are right. There are stringent standards and liability laws in the US.

But statistically, someone always lets the side down. It's human nature.

1/My firm filed new #FOIA lawsuit today for @wbaidlaw to compel disclosure of @FBI records re: #whistleblower’s efforts to reveal pattern of falsified intel reports generated by FBI & @CIA that led to unlawful retaliation. Story of #MarkMcConnell told in
newyorker.com/magazine/2020/…
2/In July 2017, McConnell was detailed by Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) Executive Office to work at Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATFS) at request of JIATFS leadership.
3/Primary reasons for detailing McConnell were to inject agency-agnostic prosecutor perspective into fed law enforcement agency interactions at JIATFS to try & smooth out unproductive competitive interagency law enforcement behaviors ...

“Continents are plundered, criminal money is laundered, brutal wars are financed. All with the help of opaque company structures and the governments that host these structures.” 🎙️ @f_obermaier at launch of @KleptoCaucus. #KleptoMonth
The #PanamaPapers showed how offshore secrecy 🏝️ enables crime and corruption, but “there are countless other Mossack Fonsecas out there: financial service providers, consultancy firms and law firms helping crooks and criminals, autocrats and dictators hide their money.” 💸
“ “Corruption eats away at the foundations of democratic societies” @POTUS recently stated. And he was right. But this is not news: it is a fact known for decades. And yet not much has changed. Until recently.” @f_obermaier

Under the Greek legal system, a #whistleblower is granted protection until the case is heard in the highest court of appeals. Today, a General Attorney decided to de facto alter the process by asking a whistleblower to leave the room, for unknown reasons. (1)
Corruption and protecting #whistleblowers are interconnected. Our framework of criminal proceedings is clear that until the case is seen through, the person who originally gave the information is protected at all fronts. Today, under the pretext of Covid19 we failed to do so.
It is a major step back to our legal civilization and evolution because a General Attorney has no authority to lift the title of a #whistleblower until the case is heard in front of the Highest Court applying to every case. Public interest shouldn't be affected by any pandemic.

May 1st was both now-deceased Kevin Spacey whistleblower Linda Culkin's 62nd birthday, and the two-year anniversary of her story being carried in The National Enquirer / Radar Online.
radaronline.com/exclusives/201…
[2/47] I wrote my first thread about Linda Culkin in late January, 2019. She died five weeks later, on February 27th, after being struck by a car while walking to her home in Quincy, MA. She had only been finished with her probation from her Kevin Spacey court case for a matter
