Judge Jails Human Rights Lawyer After Going After Chevron

Chevron Judge makes an example of human rights lawyer who stood up against big oil. Steven Donziger defended an indigenous tribe from Chevron's illegal toxic waste dump, only to face jail for it. Has Chevron privatized the court system? Will anyone stand up for nature and the rights of indigenous people again if the penalty is prison?

Greg Palast joins Thom Hartmann to discuss Human Rights Lawyer Steven Donziger, the indigenous Tribes of Equador and the Amazon and Chevron. Greg Palast is an investigative journalist, author of numerous books, the latest, How Trump Stole 2020.
