Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And I have to say the entire performance reminded me that at this this this man this prosecutor ignored a fifty three page indictment and had some strange issues around immunity for co-conspirators and one of the close friends have Jeffrey Epstein and later gave this same man a pretty good job and I think you know we don't know where this leads.
