Republican Briefs

Arizona-Attorney-General-Accused-Of-Evidence-Tampering …“This week, papers were filed with the Arizona Supreme Court alleging that Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich has tampered with evidence in criminal investigation of attorneys with the Snell and Wilmer law firm and victim businessman Will Graven. According to the filing, “AG Brnovich, to insure that Pinal County would support his (Brnovich) claims that there was insufficient evidence to take the Snell & Wilmer Case to the State Grand Jury, has tampered with the materials/evidence that he transferred to Pinal County…in fact, he has not sent the “entire criminal file,” he has withheld key evidence.”

State-Grand-Jury-Review-Sought-In-AZ-AG, Snell-And-Wilmer-Investigation A Peremptory Writ of Mandamus has been filed with the Arizona Supreme Court asking that the Arizona Attorney General’s Office present the results of investigations into the actions of attorneys with the Snell and Wilmer law firm as well as several officials from the City of Victorville, California to a State Grand Jury. ag-can-do-it-sundays-comic Briefs alerted readers to this investigation several times, starting March 15. -ft

Whether You Agree with the controversial Prop 123 or not, it is refreshing to learn former gubernatorial combatants Fred DuVal (D) and Gov Doug Ducey are working together on an issue they agree upon. Can’t say I agree with the way Ducey has treated Treasurer Jeff DeWit over their disagreement on the issueas  DeWit has some valid point and shouldn’t be treated like a leper in the hallow halls of the Capitol. Nevertheless, all three of them - DeWit, Ducey and DuVal - are likeable, bright, articulate, ambitious young men on the go. They should be able to disagree and still work together on various other issues. - ft

Famous Miranda Case Revisited: The U.S. Supreme Court Overturned The Conviction Of Ernesto Miranda on kidnapping and rape charges because he was not informed of his rights during his arrest, making his written and signed confession null and void. Learn about this iconic case, Miranda v. Arizona, during Law Day 2016 – “Miranda: More than Words,” between 11 am and 4 pm., May 2, in the Arizona Capitol Museum, Historic Supreme Courtroom, 1700 W. Washington St., Phoenix. Admission is free. Items from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records and the Phoenix Police Museum will be on display in the courtroom where arguments were heard before the Arizona Supreme Court. The exhibit contains displays from the investigation and local trials, including a copy of Miranda’s signed confession. The verdict in the Miranda v. Arizona case had a profound effect on law enforcement in the arrest and questioning of defendants; ultimately creating the Miranda Warning recited to suspects by law enforcement officials:

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?

A day-long speaker series in the State Library of Arizona Marguerite B. Cooley Reading Room, one floor above the Historic Supreme Courtroom will include:

  • 11:30 am – The Miranda Case, Arizona Court of Appeals Judge Maurice Portley
  • 1 pm – How the Fifth Amendment Protects All of Us, Robert McWhirter, JD.
  • 2:30 pm – The Miranda Case, Ret Capt Carroll Cooley, Phx Police Dept arresting officer in the Miranda case.

After the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Miranda was retried by the state of Arizona and his confession was not used as evidence. Miranda was convicted and sentenced to 20-30 years in prison. Contact: 602-926-3870.


Congressman Paul A. Gosar after participating in a House Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans legislative hearing which included legislation he introduced, H.R. 1869, the Environmental Compliance Cost Transparency Act, which requires federal Power Marketing Administrations (PMAs) active in the wholesale power business to disclose the direct and indirect costs of environmental compliance to their customers in monthly billing statements “The millions of retail consumers served by federal PMA’s eat the costs of the Endangered Species Act, the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and other federal environmental laws. These costs are real: In the Pacific Northwest, 30% of the rates are related to environmental costs and the Glen Canyon Dam flows in Arizona can cost its customers up to $50 million annually due to foregone power. My bipartisan bill doesn’t repeal a single environmental law and simply requires transparency, helping customers paying these bills better understand where their money is going.” The full text of the Environmental Compliance Cost Transparency Act can be found HERE.

Congressmen Matt Salmon (AZ-05) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) yesterday reintroduced a constitutional amendment prohibiting Congress from making any law that exempts Members of Congress from its implementation. The 28th Amendment will ensure that we remain a nation in which all citizens are equal under the law. Salmon said: “Americans know full well that Congress refuses to hold itself accountable.  They saw what Congress tried to do when it forced Obamacare on the public while attempting to exempt itself.  This must end. This very necessary amendment would ensure that Congress always lives under the same rules as Main Street, and that no American need fear a law that doesn’t apply equally to their representatives in Washington.”

Congressman Paul Gosar: after the Senate successfully passed S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2015, legislation which included two bills Congressman Gosar introduced in the House; H.R.1107, the Bureau of Reclamation Transparency Act and H.R. 2663, the Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act: “I applaud Senators Lisa Murkowski, Dean Heller and John Barrasso as well as my other bicameral, bipartisan colleagues for all their efforts in passing two pieces of commonsense legislation through the Senate today that will strengthen our nation’s energy security. Many of the challenges facing hard-working Arizonans and job creators stem from outdated bureaucratic hurdles that need reform. The Bureau of Reclamation Transparency Act ensures that this agency will disclose cost estimates and prioritize major repairs for BOR facilities. Congress needs this information in order to address the agency’s maintenance backlog and ensure an abundant supply of clean water and power for future generations. The Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act modernizes the outdated federal permitting process that continues to kill jobs and stifle energy security. Renewable energy is an integral part of our all-of-the-above energy strategy and our nation’s public lands should play a critical role in facilitating development. These bipartisan reforms are simply good governance which taxpayers deserve and should be signed into law without delay.”

Sen John McCain on Senate Floor: “I do not know what lies beneath ‘the lower ragged edge of manageable risk,’ but this is what I fear it means—that our military is becoming less and less able to deter conflict, and that if, God forbid, deterrence does fail somewhere and we end up in conflict, our nation will deploy young Americans into battle without sufficient training or equipment to fight a war that will take longer, be larger, cost more, and ultimately claim more American lives than it otherwise would have…And if that comes to pass, who will be responsible?... The answer is clear: we are. The White House, the Congress, Democrats and Republicans. Every politician that designed, agreed to, or went along with the Budget Control Act and the mindless mechanism of sequestration.” – SASC Chairman John McCain speaking on the Senate floor today

Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America's First Muslim Brotherhood Political Party

Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise Of America's First Muslim Brotherhood Political Party: …The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal in America is to “destroy the Western civilization from within.” Star-Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party shows the newest weapon in their arsenal for doing so - a self-described “political Party” called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). This new monograph “connects the dots” between the Brotherhood’s secret plan to impose Shariah here and the insidious use it intends to make of our democratic political system to that end.
