“We have a DA who completely lacks any transparency, who’s sending a spokesperson on the news to say things that just aren’t true.”
Jon Hatami, a Los Angeles deputy district attorney, said L.A. District Attorney George Gascón knew about the phone calls made by “transgender” child molester James Tubbs bragging about his light sentence.
James Tubbs, who now goes by Hannah, claimed to be transgender once prosecutors took him into custody for molesting a 10-year-old girl in a Denny’s restroom in 2014. He was two weeks from turning 18.
Gascón decided to try Tubbs in juvenile court instead of adult court. The judge could only sentence Tubbs to two years in a juvenile detention center. Since he’s now a female the authorities house him in the female section but keep him isolated.
I do not believe he is transgender at all.
Fox released explosive phone calls Tubbs made in jail before his sentencing. He made horrific remarks about the victim. He bragged about how he would get a light sentence and not have to register as a sex offender.
Tubbs told another person if they send him to jail he would get a sex change surgery so he could go to the women’s facility.
Gascón said he did not know about the phone calls, which took place in November, before Fox News published the details:
“I became aware last Thursday of the contents of that call, and the contents of that call were extremely disturbing to me because it showed a level of callousness and a level of disrespect for humanity from an individual that I had previously felt, given her conditions when the crime had originally occurred, she needed to be prosecuted as a juvenile,” he said. “I, as a result of reviewing the contents of that particular jail call, I came to the conclusion that this person was gaming the system.”
Sources told Fox News Digital that Gascón knew.
Hatami, who is also a veteran prosecutor of child abuse crimes, appeared on America’s Newsroom and told the truth:
Alex Bastian, Gascon’s special adviser, said on “America’s Newsroom” earlier in the day that “the content of these jail calls was something that we did not know about” until Fox News’ Bill Melugin asked for comment on the alarming statements Tubbs made in calls with her father between November and January.
“That statement that Alex Bastian made is completely untrue,” Hatami said. “And it is a slap in the face to the victim in this case.”
He pointed to a Los Angeles Times report in which Bastian went on the record to state that senior aides in Gascon’s office knew about the calls.
Hatami said that he has seen emails that show discussion of the calls circulated at the highest levels of Gascon’s office – and that they should be available under California’s open records laws.
“I’ve seen emails, emails that show that George Gascon and his chain of command knew about those jail calls well before Bill Melugin published them,” Hatami said. “We have a DA who completely lacks any transparency, who’s sending a spokesperson on the news to say things that just aren’t true.”
