Seasoned California criminal defense attorney, Dyke Huish, shares his legal experience on defending J6 detainees and his thoughts on allegations the FBI and DOJ have been weaponized

Martin: Well, you know, there was a case in California where the FBI misled a judge.
The judge said he was misled, and I think it was in Beverly Hills at the private vault store.
And they went in and rated 1400 safe deposit boxes of basically innocent Americans, took them back with them, and opened them all up.
And they did it under a false warrant.
Well, it happens.
I mean, that’s coming from a judge.
Dyke Huish: It does.
And look, if you want a criticism here, I’ll give it to you.
The Patriot Act passed back in 2002, was designed to help us protect from terrorism.
And I think that the lack of terroristic events that have happened since 911, I mean, there have been things, but it hasn’t been like it could have been, have probably been, you know, is partly protected from the Patriot Act.
But I think it’s also made it possible for Americans to be viewed by our own people.
I don’t like it.
I don’t like it.
And once upon a time, there was an ACLU who you may never have liked but fought these battles against these people.
And I don’t know that they’re on the front line like they used to be against these things.
Maybe they are.
I don’t hear or see them like I used to.
And it kind of feels like those battles have been kind of conceded.
And I’ll give you two reasons.
The first reason is conservatives don’t generally want to give up the idea of powerful law enforcement.
Your kind of questions are leading down the road of, hey, our law enforcement has gone too far.
But I can’t imagine the conservator listener wants law enforcement to be less powerful.
They want law enforcement that can do their job and can when bad people are doing bad things. There are many, many bad people doing bad things. They want them to be arrested, taken in, and adequately processed, given due process, fight their case, and, if convicted, sent away for an appropriate amount of time.
Martin: But I do think Americans, even though they want strong, aggressive law enforcement, they also want to require that law enforcement does not violate their constitutional rights in doing their job.
And if they start violating the constitutional rights of Americans, I think the public will say somebody’s head has got to roll.
Maybe not the entire FBI, perhaps not the entire DOJ or Homeland Security, but someone at the top.
Their heads have got to start rolling because they are now violating time-honored, First Amendment and other constitutional rights that protect American citizens from this type of law enforcement overreach.
Dyke: I can think of, as I sit here right now, and I will absolutely not name names, but I can think of at least five prosecutors and a couple of, well, police officers who I personally knew and know who was taken down because of their improper behavior as lawyers or investigators.
And I can think of a couple who probably should have gone.
I think of one specific attorney who just period. Others are a little monkey business, and I think it was political.
I think of one gentleman who was an exceptional lawyer, liked by everybody and trusted by everybody, who got caught in a political thing, who was given a case to prosecute it, handled it the best he could, and when it didn’t turn out, they put his head on the block.
So I do think that there is a balance here.
But I want you to remember something because this is really important.
What you keep bringing back to is the executive branch acting out of line.
What do we do when the executive branch acts out of line?
Well, we do two things.
One, we vote them out of office, which is sometimes harder to do than it looks, but it happens because, in our lifetime, we’ve seen many people come and go.
So we vote them out of office.
Or, second, they got to come to court and prove it.
And I am telling you, these federal judges, the 640 plus federal judges who all have the power of the United States of America, do not screw around.
I do not screw around with these judges.
These are smart, powerful,
independent-minded people that sit on the judiciary and will call balls and strikes however they see them coming in, and they do not vary from that.
Now, I think that they do have-
I think some are a little more this way, and some are a little more that way but within the range.
I don’t see many that go outside.
And when they do, people like you usually call them on it.
