Brandon Mayfield

Falsely Accused of Madrid Train Bombings


Oregon attorney Brandon Mayfield discusses his persecution at the hands of the FBI, their holding him as a “material witness” in order to deny him basic due process, the false accusations linking him to the March 2004 train bombing in Madrid, Spain, how the FBI refused to budge on their crazy conspiracy theory until the Spanish authorities proved his innocence beyond doubt, the government’s use of “sneak and peek” warrants against him and his family, the chilling effect on the attorney-client privilege from new Justice Department “guidelines” and the prosecution of Lynn Stewart and how his lawsuits against the government have led a federal district court judge to strike two provisions from the PATRIOT Act.

Brandon Mayfield is an attorney in Portland, Oregon, not a terrorist.

One thought on “Brandon Mayfield”

  1. I had not heard about this horror done to attorney Mayfield by the FBI. How fortunate Lynn Stewart was to have his representation, and the sooner Congress strikes down the whole Patriot Act, (very fascist sounding, eh), the better, by God.
