It is going be public record anyway.
I figure I might as well share it with you before anyone else puts there spin on it and share the raw audio…
How did this happen?
I talk about Alabama politics, after Hubbard was subpoenaed a few days before general election I made it clear there were politics at play here.
Matt Hart, an investigator for the Attorney General’s office, called me and asked to talk about the case off the record.
I agreed, but I was not going to be caught in a situation where they had a tape and could cut and parse the conversation their own liking, as they did with Rep. Barry Moore and not have a tape for myself. I used a laptop and recorded the conversation. Is recording the conversation a scummy thing to do? Maybe, but I wasn’t going to be at there mercy later on.
I have been through this with an overzealous prosecutor before. I was targeted and they attempted to put me in jail for 30+ years, they couldn’t even get it out of a grand jury. (This never made it into the press, only the existence of the investigation did.)
Why did they call me?
Intimidation and an attempt to influence an election. This call took place on October 26th, 2014 and 9 days before the general election.
There is nothing salacious in this phone call. In my opinion, all the phone call does is prove that there are folks in the AG’s office who are conducting political operations. That’s not to say the investigation is not legit BUT there are some politics involved here.
Somehow Mike Hubbard’s attorney found out about the conversation and asked for a tape, if I had one, I believe other’s were called as well. I don’t know if there are more tapes out there.
Here are some Qs you might want to ask:
- Who else had these conversation with Hart?
- Have they been subpoenaed?
- Will they disclosed this to you?
- Why is Hart calling these people?
- Is Hart leaking information before an election for political reasons?
Here ya go, prepare to be amazed that an investigator in an ongoing criminal case attempts to sway members of the media to change their coverage.
This conversation was recorded on Sunday, October 26, 2014, pursuant to Alabama law, with Alabama Attorney General’s office investigator Matt Hart.
