Saturday Movie Matinee: Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev & Miranda Rights

Via The Blaze: Aitan Goelman on Boston Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev & Miranda Rights:

A former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor says the federal government made a mistake in not immediately reading captured Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights and instead invoking a public safety exception.

Justice Department officials confirmed to multiple news outlets Friday night that Tsarnaev did not receive a Miranda warning and instead will be questioned by a special interrogation team in the hope that he could give up more information, such as whether he and his brother acted alone or if they received training or direction from anyone abroad.

But Aitan Goelman, who served as a Justice Department attorney for nine years and prosecuted the Oklahoma City bombing case, said Saturday that he thinks the government is taking a risk in invoking the exception that says police do not need to give Tsarnaev the well-known warning and can still introduce any statements he makes in court — because it might not hold up.

“The government is taking a chance in interviewing the suspect without reading his Miranda rights,” Goelman said on Fox News.

Rep Peter King tells Steve Malzberg Saudi Man at Race Still a Suspect:

On Tuesday, Rep. King told radio host, Steve Malzberg, that based on what he’d heard from people he’d been talking to, he wasn’t sure the Saudi National had really been ruled out as a suspect. This was after it had been widely reported that the Saudi  was no longer a person of interest.

The National Security briefing that King was supposed to have attended that morning had been postponed because the situation “was too fluid.”

On the Steve Malzberg Show today, Congressman Peter King, a member of the Homeland Security Committee, says that despite contradicting reports, the fleeing Saudi man that was injured at the Boston Marathon is not a suspect.
