沙文, 45, is facing charges of second and third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd on May 25, 2020.
Attorney Benjamin Crump, who is the lawyer for the Floyd family, appeared virtually 上 “风景” on Thursday and relayed to co-host Joy Behar that Clooney, 59, has been entrenched in societal issues so much that the Oscar-winning actor often emails Crump with ideas on how to drive social change.
Clooney, who shares three-year-old twins Alexander and Ella with wife Amal Clooney, simply wants his children to “live in a better world,” 克朗普说.
He added that Clooney had also emailed him about how he should respond to Chauvin’s defense lawyers’ suggestion that a drug overdose caused Floyd’s death and not Chauvin’s knee which he kept on Floyd’s neck for nearly 10 分钟.
The attorney recollected the email he had received from the “Money Monster” 星.
“‘Attorney Crump, you should tell them if Derek Chauvin feels so confident in that, he should volunteer during his case, to get down on the floor in that courtroom, and let somebody come and put their knee on his neck for 9 分钟和 29 seconds and be able to see if he can survive,'” the email reportedly reads.
A rep for Clooney confirmed to 今晚娱乐 on Thursday that the actor did send the email to Crump. A rep for Clooney did not respond to Fox News’ 征求意见.
During his interview on “风景,” Crump went on to say that “the experts will opine during this case that the average human being can go without oxygen from 30 seconds to 90 秒 — where George Floyd went without oxygen for over 429 秒, and that’s why it was intentional what this officer did.”
“And I believe in my heart, Joy Behar, that he will be held criminally liable and it will hopefully set a new precedent in America,” Crump added.
“Starting with Kobe Bryant 垂死. It’s been one catastrophe after another,” Clooney said at the time. “And all the racial unrest with the George Floyd killing and 布伦娜·泰勒（Breonna Taylor）. We’ve had all of these things that have just felt oppressive towards us. I see a lot of light at the end of these tunnels.”
