White House Lawyer John Eisenberg Tried to Cover Up Trump’s Crimes

Politics • Views: 25,163

As more of the story emerges, it’s increasingly clear that everyone in Trump’s inner circle knew he had crossed the line into criminal behavior by extorting Ukraine to cook up some dirt on Joe Biden — because they tried to help him cover it up.

Moments after President Trump ended his phone call with Ukraine’s president on July 25, an unsettled national security aide rushed to the office of White House lawyer .

Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine adviser at the White House, had been listening to the call and was disturbed by the pressure Trump had applied to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rivals, according to people familiar with Vindman’s testimony to lawmakers this week.

Vindman told Eisenberg, the White House’s legal adviser on national security issues, that what the president did was wrong, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

Scribbling notes on a yellow legal pad, Eisenberg proposed a step that other officials have said is at odds with long-standing White House protocol: moving a transcript of the call to a highly classified server and restricting access to it, according to two people familiar with Vindman’s account.

I’ve been an Astros fan since 1977 (I was six). The first game I went to at the Astrodome, they played the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals). The Astros lost the game, but I couldn’t figure out why because I added up all the runs, hits, and errors, and the Astros had more than the Expos. They’re about to lose the Series, but the last three years have been a blast. Plus, it’s something other than our shared hatred of Trump that I can talk about with my family.

A cold front is moving through North Texas (which, strangely enough, is where the DFW area is, and east of West Texas - but not East Texas - rather than the panhandle). We’re under a freeze warning. But the winds are the worst part. Easily 20 mph, pushing the wind chill down into the teens even though the temps are the mid thirties.

I mean this wasn’t even a dispute of fact. The fact of the matter is Yoo, Kilmeade, Duffy, and Ingraham, neither of whom have sacrificed their bodies for this country were questioning Colonel Vindman’s loyalty to this country because he was born in Ukraine. The facts are that VIndman has been in the Army since the late 90’s. He joined before 9/11 and the whole fake rah rah patriotism bullshit that FNC engages in. It really disgusts me that people in my own family even if they are more distant relatives will defend this corrupt piece of shit and his lackeys in and out of the media.

I’m a huge baseball fan. I’m happy for my Nats friends and family who I know are true fans but I have to admit it really kind of bugs me that I got so much crap over the years for sticking with my team. I never once disparaged anyone for switching to the Nats when they moved from Montreal to DC but I fell in love with baseball in Baltimore and thus my allegiance will always be with the Orioles.

Glad you reposted because I wanted to reply. Small world. An old friend of mine, Terry Ward, was Assistant Marketing Coordinator for the Astros in 1977-78. He was the guy who put together the promotion to cut the original Astroturf up into little squares and make keepsakes. Somewhere, in a box in my attic, I have mine.

The Astrodome was really cool. When my Mom visited her aunt in Houston, her uncle took her and my uncle to a game. I also remember the old school Astros jacket that my Uncle gave to my Grandfather too.

If my memory is correct, the bullpen was behind homeplate. When I went to a game with my friend who worked for the Astros, I saw Vida Blue pitch from that vantage point (he was in his first year with the Giants, 1978.) It was pretty breathtaking.

Edit—or maybe it was 1977 and he was still with the A’s—hey, I’m old and it was a long time ago! But it was definitely Vida Blue. That I remember.

Never noticed that detail. Houston had a lot of players I liked in the 90’s. Bagwell and Biggio obviously but also the late Darryl Kile and Mike Hampton. I was always disappointed that they never got over the hump with the Braves. I respected those Braves teams but I like underdogs.

“…A former National Security Council official, forced out by National-Security Adviser H.R. McMaster in July, is set to join the staff of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, according to two sources familiar with his move.

Derek Harvey, who was the NSC’s senior director for the Middle East and had been appointed by the former National-Security Adviser Michael Flynn, was among several officials who were ousted this summer. That list also includes the former senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, and a director for strategic planning, Rich Higgins, who produced a memo alleging a deep-state plot against President Trump..
………

Harvey was one of the most hawkish members of the NSC with respect to Iran, and was seen as an ally of former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.”

Also a commentary on the perils of blaming the wrong person or thing of things like the Notre Dame fire… Instead of correctly identifying, say aged electrical wiring or incorrect fire protection practises during renovation (one of which I believe was determined to be a likely cause), you go around looking for firebug Daeshbags, which of course will lower incidents of arson started by muslims, but may come at the expense of arsons started by other groups, as well as electrical and working safety practices going without update to avoid serious incidents.

I was wrong.

Politico: “President Trump is rewarding senators who have his back on impeachment — and sending a message to those who don’t to get on board. Trump is tapping his vast fundraising network for a handful of loyal senators facing tough reelection bids in 2020. Each of them has signed onto a Republican-backed resolution condemning the inquiry as ‘unprecedented and undemocratic.’”

“Conspicuously absent from the group is Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a politically vulnerable Republican who’s refused to support the resolution and avoided taking a stance on impeachment. With his new push, Trump is exerting leverage over a group he badly needs in his corner with an impeachment trial likely coming soon to the Senate — but that also needs him.”

I worked for in College Sports in the 1980’s (when they first started their patchwork attempts at “reform”) and it is a massive scam.

The Football and Basketball players should be hired as full-time employees. Deduct their tuition and expenses from that, let them work part-time on their degree in the off season and give them a chance to finish their degree once their four-year stint in the de facto NFL/NBA Minor Leagues are up.

My doctor describes me as “ridiculously healthy”, but that’s age-adjusted. A string of non-lethal conditions keeps me in doctors’ waiting rooms all over the county. Today it’s another kidney stone adventure, thus my sunny mood.

An old friend, a Vietnam dustoff pilot, forwarded valuable self-diagnosis advice:

A simplified urine test that may be relevant for you!

Go outside and pee in the garden…..
If ants gather: Diabetes.
If you pee on your feet: Prostate.
If it smells like a barbecue: Cholesterol.
If, when you shake it, your wrist hurts: Osteoarthritis.
If you go back inside with your penis outside your pants: Alzheimers.

re: #88 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

I worked for in College Sports in the 1980’s (when they first started their patchwork attempts at “reform”) and it is a massive scam.

The Football and Basketball players should be hired as full-time employees. Deduct their tuition and expenses from that, let them work part-time on their degree in the off season and give them a chance to finish their degree once their four-year stint in the de facto NFL/NBA Minor Leagues are up.

I agree. However there are other sports too. Anyhow. It’s long overdue. The big school and name basketball coaches or football ones are usually the highest paid state employees and until now the players got squat. Never saw Romney object to Nick Saban or Coach K having a nice salary.

Attorneys representing President Donald Trump, the House of Representatives and Charles Kupperman, the president’s former deputy national security adviser, will appear in federal court Thursday in a case in which Kupperman is asking a judge the decide whether he must submit to questioning in the House impeachment inquiry.

The case is the latest twist in White House efforts to block all former and current administration officials from testifying or otherwise cooperating with the Democrat-led probe.

I’ll speak really quick on the ability for NCAA Athletes to make money off of their likeness.

I appeared in the video game NCAA Football 2001, made by Electronic Arts Sports. The name used by the game was not mine, but all other characteristics of the specific player matched my own. Height, weight, ability level, hometown, ect. EA Sports used my likeness without my permission(along with every other player in the game that year). I was a part of the Class Action lawsuit that ended with a settlement that netted me about $400. Sure, I’ll use that money for something, but at the time I earned it- it would have made a bigger difference.

Now, I do not expect the NCAA to actually follow through and do things correctly. College Athletes are not dumb, and aren’t thugs. I played for a major college program in a major conference, and while we were a below average program- the money that flowed was major. Players are a labor force that while some(not all) are on scholarship, the compensation does not match the value the labor force helps produce.

Once again, these capitalists say they love capitalism, but when who they stereotypically think of- poor, black, uneducated athletes, might benefit- they will fight against it tooth and nail.

It also comes off less economic to me and more “ewww tampons are just these sluts wanting to screw.” I could get a middle school administrator objecting to the distribution of condoms but condoms and tampons aren’t the same.

I personally think that this compensation mechanism is the best way to do it. Let’s say, instead, that the NCAA decides athletes can work jobs instead. It will be very easy to for companies and on-campus orgs to find reason to hire the athletes over other students, a lot of whom didn’t get any scholarships or at least didn’t get enough to cover all of their costs.

jaunte  Oct 31, 2019 • 7:48:08am

“…By the way, the reasons for Democrats holding private interviews, and conducting them like grand jury hearings, are obvious: They minimize political grandstanding by lawmakers and witnesses. They allow staff attorneys to ask questions for extended blocks of time, and private interviews prevent witnesses from lining up their stories in advance by simply watching what other witnesses say during public hearings.

To its credit, The Washington Post recently published a stinging editorial condemning Republicans for their bogus “process” attacks. “There is an old Washington saying that if you’re arguing about process, you’re losing,” the Post editorial board wrote. “A follow-on maxim might be: If you are wrong on process, too, you must really be in trouble.”

But this frank discussion should not be restricted to the opinion pages. The fact is, Democrats are following the established rules, as National Memo’s Joe Conason helpfully pointed out. “House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), today insists the impeachment inquiry shouldn’t proceed unless the Republicans are permitted to issue subpoenas — but the rule that awards subpoena power exclusively to the majority is precisely what he and his cronies approved four years ago,” Conason wrote.”

“The people” are the reason you’re not Speaker, Kev. But let’s not facts get in the way of partisan bitching.

Of course not, partisan bitching is pretty much all they have to offer. At this point in time, anyway. I’m sure that as the “formal” impeachment hearings progress, they’ll find a new “argument”. Actually, it will probably be the same-old partisan bitching: they’ll just find new ways to fine-tune the “message”.

But then again, partisanality is really all they have by way of “defense”. And (IMO) their biggest advantage comes in the very nature of the Constitutional impeachment process.
It’s not a purely “legal” process, and neither is it purely “political”: but an odd hybrid affair - and one with no Constitutional avenue of appeal: the Senate’s judgment is final - one in which political motivations (and legalistic maneuvering) can be exploited by either side as considered necessary.
And, as we’ve seen from Trump’s blatant attempts to bribe Senators into committing to a favorable “verdict” with porkbarrel goodies/campaign cash, “necessary” is a fairly broad concept.

i’ll spare you the idiocy of the conversation, high demand, manufacturer delays*, except this part:

on monday you called and said it would be delivered tuesday
so monday night we took out the old stove
tuesday you said we’d have it friday
we said we dont have a stove.
you actually said, “i understand how it can be difficult to cook without a stove”

today you say it’s delayed again - for another week and a half - wtf are we supposed to do?

(now wait for it…)

“yes, but now you have a guarantee that it will be delivered on 11/8.”

apparently the 4 previous phone calls were not ‘guarantees’

Okay, back to business.

They better get used to it. The revelations are only going to get worse, not better. The extortion and bribery of Ukraine is by no means an isolated incident. It is the M/O of an on-going criminal enterprise.

While the R’s think there’s a possibility that they will take a serious hit with swing voters by voting to acquit, they still think voting to remove would be a bigger hit.

They were ready to remove Bill Clinton over a soiled dress and a lie told over a private matter. That they took very seriously.

(yes i know, but) If a Democratic President was blackmailing foreign governments into investigating a likely Republican nominee for President, they’d be far past the serious part of the program here. And they all know that. They all know we know that. We know they know we know.

As an aside, congrats to Trump - the first President ever:
elected to the office
still in his first term
seeking reelection
and impeached.

So much winning!

They had a good run but we’re going to see a new power emerge in the NBA. My youngest brother is a big NBA fan. Not of any team but really likes players. His favorite was Dirk. I was curious who his new favorites are. Luka Doncic and Nikola Jonic since in his words Euro-ball is where it’s at so I called him a Yugosnob which is doubly funny since our grandfather’s parents were from Slovenia. Those Warriors were fun to watch because I like a three much more than a slam dunk but I like seeing new powers emerge.

I’ve been a Nuggets fan since they were in the ABA. This is the first year in my lifetime that they are legitimate contenders.

To an extent.

They were very, very good their first two years in the NBA, and then the “treated like an expansion team” punishments came down on their heads and they remained a fringe playoff team mainly because of brilliant trades like the one that brought in English. Also, you forget ‘87-88, when if they’d got through the Mavs they’d have won it all, and they only fell to the Mavs because one of their star PGs—I think it was Adams, but it might have been Fat—was injured beginning in the second game of the series.

And then there’s ‘94, where they admittedly had no business being on the same court with the Sonics, but were a game from the WCF regardless and were built to beat Houston, so The Jet likely wouldn’t have a ring now.

And of course, ‘09, where a simple inbounds play means a WCF Game 7, though admittedly it’d have been at Staples.

And that led to the team being considered a contender for ‘09-10 (even at playoff time, since the Nuggets were a key part of the imagery for the league’s ads that year), which of course worked out badly mainly because we wound up having to see Dantley coach against legendary Jerry Sloane.

But that’s still 6 years out of 42.

Bear in mind that had they made it this year, it wouldn’t have been buying a championship—not to the extent of the Astros, anyway!

LeMahieu was their MVP and he was a bargain-basement signing who was seen as poor compensation for missing out on Machado and watching Arenado sign an-extension-that-was-stupid-for-both-sides.

Beyond that, Urshela was admittedly sold straight-up by Toronto, but nobody thought they were dealing a star, while the rest of the infield was actually home-grown. Admittedly, they still paid though the nose for their outfield, but even then they had to call up a farmhand while Stanton was out for almost a half season.

I will, however, admit that while DJ took a “prove-it” deal, he’d never have signed the same deal outside NYC and maybe Chicago or LA. Most years, I’d have added the Bay Area to that, but no one sane wants to sign with the A’s as a vet, and the Giants were always going to have a down year and DJ knew it.

It’s more like the Lakers-Clippers. Though it changed a bit after 2002.

I remember going to freeway series games (even before interleague play) and the Dodger fans at Angel Stadium would drown out Angel fans during take me out to the ballgame.

After the Angels won they had a lot of pink hat fans that ended up staying on. But it’s very regional. You won’t find Angel fans in LA proper, mostly in Orange County or right on the border of the counties. But you’ll still find Dodger fans in Orange County. (Which is similar to the Kings and Ducks dynamic as well)

The Clippers don’t really have a fan base, the Lakers own everything that makes up the LA market.

I’ve not figured out the Rams and Chargers fan bases yet. The Rams at least had a history here to draw on, but 20 years is a long time - especially in a town with this many transplants. The Chargers have a decent fan base in Orange County, but not many of them seem interested in driving to Carson for games.

re: #375 Chrysicat

Bear in mind that had they made it this year, it wouldn’t have been buying a championship—not to the extent of the Astros, anyway!

LeMahieu was their MVP and he was a bargain-basement signing who was seen as poor compensation for missing out on Machado and watching Arenado sign an-extension-that-was-stupid-for-both-sides.

Beyond that, Urshela was admittedly sold straight-up by Toronto, but nobody thought they were dealing a star, while the rest of the infield was actually home-grown. Admittedly, they still paid though the nose for their outfield, but even then they had to call up a farmhand while Stanton was out for almost a half season.

I will, however, admit that while DJ took a “prove-it” deal, he’d never have signed the same deal outside NYC and maybe Chicago or LA. Most years, I’d have added the Bay Area to that, but no one sane wants to sign with the A’s as a vet, and the Giants were always going to have a down year and DJ knew it.

Oh yeah these aren’t the old Steinbrenner Yankees. What George’s boys are doing is smart baseball. They’re trying to create a new core like they did when they had Jeter, Williams, Rivera, and Posada in the 90’s and early 00’s. That was why they won those championships not the big names. I’m hoping the Orioles ownership which now funnily enough has two sons of the former owner (though Peter Angelos is still officially the owner) in charge learn from the same lessons. This year was a bad team but they made a great GM hire IMO and they’re drafting and developing better.

It’s more like the Lakers-Clippers. Though it changed a bit after 2002.

I remember going to freeway series games (even before interleague play) and the Dodger fans at Angel Stadium would drown out Angel fans during take me out to the ballgame.

After the Angels won they had a lot of pink hat fans that ended up staying on. But it’s very regional. You won’t find Angel fans in LA proper, mostly in Orange County or right on the border of the counties. But you’ll still find Dodger fans in Orange County. (Which is similar to the Kings and Ducks dynamic as well)

The Clippers don’t really have a fan base, the Lakers own everything that makes up the LA market.

I’ve not figured out the Rams and Chargers fan bases yet. The Rams at least had a history here to draw on, but 20 years is a long time - especially in a town with this many transplants. The Chargers have a decent fan base in Orange County, but not many of them seem interested in driving to Carson for games.

Actually, it’s worse than that for them. When this all began a month ago, the count was roughly around 220 votes in favor of an impeachment inquiry. Today it’s over 230. The idea that impeachment would remain unpopular or become more so, scaring red state Dems into voting against it, has pretty much fallen by the wayside by this point.

Well, one of the advantages of having a thirty-odd-seat Majority in the House.
Elections have consequences….

PS: maybe a minor issue, but I know that at least two of the three vacant House seats ( Slaughter’s in NY and Cummings’ in MD) were Dem holds: I wonder if we will miss those (D)s, for the actual impeachment vote (replacement via special election takes months).

ADD: “missed” on a vote-count level only, I’m sure the late Representatives are sorely missed in any case.

The Rams played in Anaheim for about 20-25 years before moving the St Louis (and were wretched for much of that time), that hurt their LA fan base a bit. And the Rams/Raiders in the 80s and 90s had a very urban/suburban (black/white if we’re being honest) split among fans.

But when they both moved a lot of Orange County football fans adopted the Chargers (Amtrak even had a special line that would run from Orange County for Charger home games in SD). I think they should have taken the opportunity to have a stadium in Anaheim (there was talk of building another stadium in the parking lot at Angel Stadium maybe a decade ago).

I think they’ll just sort of end up like the Jets. They’ll make plenty of money because everyone does on the TV deal and they’ll do alright on ticket sales once the new stadium is built (even if, much like through out the Clippers’ history, most people are coming to see the other team). But they’ll be a second thought (or really with USC and UCLA a third or fourth thought) for football in town.

And members of Congress can voluntarily put money into either the CSRS or the FERS (depending on the year they came into Congress pension fund) and the TSP fund (a Federal Version of a 401K), Pensions are vested after 5 years. In the TSP, contributions are matched up to 5% by the government, and the contributions continue into retirement. And any fund gains are also part of the TSP.

Even if they have no other investments, a long Congressional/Federal tenure means the money can add up pretty nicely, and people can collect after 20 years. So even if Nancy wasn’t married to a real estate investor/whatever, she would have a decent retirement (and will, once she does retire). But she’s married to someone big in San Francisco real estate, and since her marriage in 1963, San Francisco has taken off like a rocket.

If government were a business, its product would (should) be the well-being of the citizenry. It would also be a business whose owners and customers are the same set.

On the tax issue, they could make an argument similar to the old Henry Ford line “Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible” and say that reducing taxes is part of the lowest cost possible. And they’d probably also still argue the supply side economics bit about reducing tax burdens allows for an expanding economy which means more tax revenue in the end (though it would see we are on the wrong side of the Laffer curve at this point).

Trump gets removed, Pence is sworn in. Trump immediately announces he’s still running for the nomination. Does Pence also run? Or does he bow out and say he’ll be the VP nominee again? Do any other potential contenders (Cruz, Rubio, Hogan, Sasse, whomever) try and jump in? What if the trial isn’t complete before the primaries start?

Expect a lot of whining in the days and weeks to come about how “important” witnesses are being kept from testifying by Schiff because Dems are “afraid” of what they have to say about Hunter Biden.

The Evangelical Trump-cult is a GOP sub-group that REALLY needs to have Cheeto rubbed in their faces. They have quite literally claimed divine status for him, as God’s anointed. They should be mocked, exposed, and vilified until they either vanish or Jesus comes back and chases them away with a whip. Most importantly, they should retro-actively lose their tax exemptions. They should be forced to pay back taxes for the entire time they broke the law by using their exempt status as a cover for profiteering, political agitation, and the incitement of stochastic terrorism.

Moron just wants to keep racking up those impeachable offenses…

The Trump administration wants to use an obscure loophole to install far-right immigration hawk Ken Cuccinelli as acting head of the Department of Homeland Security. But in a rare rejection of the president, even Republican lawmakers decried the plot as illegal on Wednesday.

Trump has been eyeing Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, to take over DHS for weeks, but White House lawyers determined that it would be illegal to appoint him because he is ineligible under the Vacancies Act. Federal law states that acting department heads must either serve 90 days as a “first assistant” to the previous Senate-confirmed secretary or be confirmed to another position, making Cuccinelli, who was appointed as acting head of USCIS following the ouster of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, ineligible.

Trump has told allies that he wants to do an end-run around federal law and appoint Cuccinelli to DHS anyway, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

Trump’s plan would involve using a loophole in which the president would tap Cuccinelli as assistant secretary of the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office at DHS — currently a vacant position — and then promote him to acting secretary. Because the assistant secretary would be considered an “inferior officer,” the president can appoint anyone he wants without a Senate confirmation.

The move is under consideration because Cuccinelli is unlikely to be confirmed to the position, despite a Republican majority in the Senate.

In the TSP, contributions are matched up to 5% by the government, and the contributions continue into retirement. And any fund gains are also part of the TSP.

Even if they have no other investments, a long Congressional/Federal tenure means the money can add up pretty nicely, and people can collect after 20 years. So even if Nancy wasn’t married to a real estate investor/whatever, she would have a decent retirement (and will, once she does retire). But she’s married to someone big in San Francisco real estate, and since her marriage in 1963, San Francisco has taken off like a rocket.

What is so stupid about saying Pelosi has so much wealth, but she only earned so much is that people sometimes inherit $$$$.

I want to know who is telling him about all these loopholes. No. Fucking. Way. Does he himself know about them.

he doesnt. he just says ‘find me something’

i posted on this yesterday and repaste it here:

- just because the OLC says it’s ok doesnt make it legal. In this environment, with this AG, it’s almost, but not quite, like asking your own lawyer for permission.

- even if/when a president breaks a mold and does something that’s not been done before, that doesnt make it some unassailable precedent for all future presidents. (leaving aside IOKIYAR).

one reason is it could be a patent abuse of power the current DOJ refuses to challenge, but a future one wouldn’t (especially contra-party)

A second is that by that logic, whatever it is you are doing now/new is breaking with all the previous precedents, so it obviously has to work in both directions

The Los Angeles Times got the back story on how the nude photos of Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) wound up online — and it includes GOP operatives who had previously worked for Steve Knight (R), her opponent for Congress.

“Conservative websites soon revealed that they had obtained some of Hill’s private texts and nude photos of her, including one with a campaign aide. The main authors of the articles, it turns out, were former campaign advisors to Steve Knight, the Republican congressman ousted by Hill a year ago.

re: #434 KGxvi

On the tax issue, they could make an argument similar to the old Henry Ford line “Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible” and say that reducing taxes is part of the lowest cost possible. And they’d probably also still argue the supply side economics bit about reducing tax burdens allows for an expanding economy which means more tax revenue in the end (though it would see we are on the wrong side of the Laffer curve at this point).

The first is a fair point and I personally don’t disagree, providing that “the best quality of goods” is in fact being produced (as well as being defined reasonably) and that the burden of whatever tax revenue is required is shared fairly between the rich and the not-rich.
And I am sure you are right that they would make the supply-side economics argument where the rich are concerned, despite real-world proof that, when the rich get tax cuts, they hold on to the money rather than inject it back into the economy. I think they would ignore the idea that tax cuts or outright grants to the lowest income citizens are actually effective, since the velocity of that money is so much higher - those living paycheck to paycheck will need to spend most of that money immediately.
Of course, if bad-faith Republican arguments were money, we would be running historic surpluses…

Edit—see I’m not very quick—but it bears repeating:

Just on the off chance that there’s anyone who doesn’t know who Jackie Speier is and how she fucking knows about cults:

Speier entered politics by serving as a congressional staffer for Congressman Leo Ryan. Speier was part of his November 1978 fact-finding mission organized to investigate allegations of human-rights abuses by Jim Jones and his Peoples Temple followers, almost all of whom were American citizens who had moved to Jonestown, Guyana, with Jones in 1977 and 1978. Speier was one of two members of the mission who made wills before traveling to Jonestown.

Several Peoples Temple members ambushed the investigative team and others boarding the plane to leave Jonestown on November 18. Five people died, including Congressman Ryan. While trying to shield herself from rifle and shotgun fire behind small airplane wheels with other team members, Speier was shot five times and waited 22 hours before help arrived
