Moskowitz essentially says the same things I've said about the sentence, including:
1. The judge followed the US Sentencing Guidelines.
2. There is no evidence of antisemitism in the sentence (or in the prosecution).
3. Rubashkin is not a hero – he is a criminal.
4. The sentence is too harsh. The judge could have used her personal discretion to lighten the sentence but she chose instead to follow the sentencing guidelines to the letter.
5. Rubashkin never admitted guilt and did not demonstrate remorse. That probably contributed to the judge's decision to no show leniency in sentencing.
Moskowitz makes the point the other white collar criminals have received similar sentences, and that Rubashkin is not being singled out.
Moskowitz appears to be unaware that Rubashkin turned down a 12 year plea deal, probably because rejected plea deals are not mentioned in the judge's sentencing memorandum.
There are a couple minutes of silence in the middle of this recording, and there is also a break for Dov Shurin's Israel news segment. Moskowitz continues his analysis after those interruptions.
