Gaetz sought blanket pardon from Trump White House
"Something in return gates privately. Asked the white house for blanket preemptive pardons for himself and unidentified congressional allies for any crimes they may have committed according to two people told of the discussions the times reports tonight that it's unclear whether congressman gates or the white house new at the time that he was under federal criminal investigation for child sex trafficking when he asked for this pardon but the times does note that if he was aware of that at the time he did not tell the white house about it when he made the pardon request now congressman gates. Didn't get any such pardon from president trump. At least one that we know of the times is reporting tonight at the white house. Thought that that kind of preemptive blanket pardon in the absence of any charges is something that might set a bad precedent. Not that that's the sort of thing they usually cared about. And other scandals during the trump administration but the times reports that quote in recent days some some trump associates have speculated that mr gates is request for a group pardon for him and other members of congress was an attempt to camouflage his own potential criminal exposure the theory being that he knew he was essentially in federal criminal danger so we asked for a pardon for himself and lots of other guys just in case

Everyone from himself to his administration officials to joe exotic if he has to because you see from the radical left a bloodlust that will only be quenched if they come after the people who worked so hard to animate the trump administration with the policies and the vigor and the effectiveness that delivered for the american.

"Why is there one member of congress from either party from either chamber alone who voted no who voted against increasing law enforcement funding to combat child sex trafficking. This thing passed unanimously. Except for matt gaetz. He voted down now according to the new york times. He's under federal investigation for child sex trafficking. Of course that might just be a coincidence. Might be a totally normal part of the story because you know sure every other part of this is totally normal since the times published the story tonight. Congressman gates has put out a public statement. Denying all the allegations. He's now just in the last hour or so done an interview on the fox news channel in which he claims that he is not only innocent. But that this is all part of an elaborate. Extortion plot targeting. His father and trying to get money from his very wealthy family also something about a plot to get him a pardon from president biden. He's making a series of allegations about what this really is. He says it's nothing like what the new york times says. He's very upset about the chargers specifically denies having any relationship with any underage person the new york times meanwhile is standing by. Its reporting joining us. Now is katie benner. She's a new york. Times reporter who covers the justice department is one of the reporters who broke the story tonight. Ms better thank you so much for making time to be here tonight. I hope i haven't butchered the story too much in my retelling. You did great. Okay so let me ask you. First about congressman. Gates's pushback story published. Initially you and michael schmidt published initial version of the story and then there was fairly quickly and update to account for congressman gates. really angrily denying all of this and making counter allegations that this is all the product of some sort of improper extortion plot. Can you help us understand. What his what his pushback is here. Sure i think the stand the congressman statements. The most important thing to do is to look at the timeline in this investigation. What we found is that this investigation began at the end of last summer. And it's been going on for more than six months so this is a series investigation. That was serious enough. That the highest levels of the justice department including the office of the attorney general. Bill barr said that the issue continue so. That's the context. Investigation effort went on for several months. What congressman gates is saying. Is that somebody then found out about it and use that information to try to get money out of his family. So i'm not saying that. The extortion claims. He's making untrue. I'm just saying that came on the heels of months and muslim investigation and a part of the country for the offices are very small and there should be some expectation. That information does sometimes leak out of these office says so the idea that the extortion exists or that it happened. I think that it should be seen in the context of that time. Line of investigation at serious bring for a longtime bubbling out into the local community. Now mr gates. Congressman gates has made this extortion allegation. As named somebody who he says is the guilty party who's trying to extort He and his family for money to try to make this go away and again. I have no no idea about the veracity of those allegations. And as you say with the timeline. It's important to understand that these may be two very separate stories but the person that he's named is that a person who was involved with the justice department investigation gates's essentially plan claiming that these are false charges trumped up against him and somebody involved in trumping up these charges against him then tried to extort money from him is the person that he's named somebody involved in this investigation now. That person is not involved in the investigation. That person currently in private practice in does not work at the justice department but again keep in mind this investigation. That when you look at the timeline was very serious. And it was something that's taken seriously by trump administration officials in the justice department. So i think one of the reasons why he has talked publicly about this extortion plot. One of the reasons why is publicly that the fbi asked his own father to wear a wire is in order to try to get people to not pay attention back. There was in fact. The trump administration who felt it was worthy to investigate In publicly talking about this investigation or the story in publicly talking about the extortion plot that he is described in public saying his father world wire. He's basically destroying and blowing up. Fbi investigation which is in itself. Something you would think would be against his own interest. You would think he would be wanting to work with the fbi and you would think he would want to keep this quiet so you have to. You have to put this all into context and say that in doing this in basically blowing up an fbi investigation into people for his family. You know he. He has both complicated investigation. Also cast aspersions on something. That was serious enough. That attorney general far roof death at attorney general bar personally approved yes. Remember last february attorney. General bar put out a memo to all several prosecutors saying that anybody involved in the twenty twenty election was going to be investigated if any members of congress going to be investigated that those investigations needed to be briefed to supervisors including the us attorney in that district and whoever the ag at justice would be so the head of the criminal division or head of the national security division. Those people would me to sign off on it and then those people would bring it up to the deputy attorney general. Enter the attorney general so he would have known about this. yes katie. Let me also ask you in terms of congressman gates and whether he is as you say by his public remarks about this supposedly extortion claim whether he is blowing up a potential fbi investigation into whether there was an extortion claims subsequent to this investigation in terms of thinking about his motivation..

"To impeach the incumbent president just days before the inauguration. Well, it's remarkable. I was Congressman Matt Gates of Florida who just a couple nights ago, got a standing ovation on the floor. When he pointed out that hypocrisy you and I were just talking about For the commercial break. But to my surprise, Republicans are bracing and preparing, really preparing as though there may be an impeachment next week. It's not on the calendar yet, but they're taking Nancy Pelosi at her word. And Matt Gates said that there was an emergency meeting today and that he and Jim Jordan and others who played a key role in the last impeachment child are preparing his own. Nancy Pelosi's gonna go through with this. What Matt Gates said is this is interesting as well. He thinks the reason Pelosi would do it, even though from a common sense standpoint, didn't seem to make a lot of sense of presidents leaving he's indicated he's leaving is that the Democrats are becoming increasingly worried that their left wing is restless. That Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden because they're such a narrow margin in both of the chambers of Congress aren't going to be able to deliver much on the liberal agenda, and so this becomes a substitute. Sugar fell for them trying to impeach the president on his way out the door so that they don't have to think about the fact they may not get those other things that they wanted to show long Now. This is fascinating, John because I'm a conservative. We cater here, too conservative the Patriots with millions of listeners and viewers on YouTube, a swell and and that there is this. I'm not saying it's the majority, but there is this definite. You know, the apocalypse is upon us. The president has conceded, and the crazies air coming in and there's going to be three new states. There's gonna be mass amnesty. So is your analysis that the despite the events of the last few days that that really a Biden administration will potentially be hamstrung and with with the The few seats that she has in her majority that Nancy will not be as bold as a some of the doom, Cesar saying. May not only a question of all this, he may just be a question of simple math to think about this dancing. Pelosi barely got reelected speaker She had a wheel in covert patients. It's ordered to get the votes that she needed to get through, and that's not as controversial as something like stacking the court or bringing in New states or You're creating a real extreme leftist agenda, and she has 2030 members in her caucus that still come from those swing states and swing district where Trump is big in the Senate. You haven't even tougher problem. Jon Tester in Montana a Joe Manchin in West Virginia, whether just massive amounts of Trump supporters and Republican base is there. They're not going to take their not gonna walk off those heads and take some of these votes. And so I think Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi already know their hands are tied. And so if Matt Gates is right, impeachment becomes the sugar fell for them the gift they can give the left. It's a meaningless guessed right. The president's leaving in 11 days. On on, so I think what's going on right now is political posturing. But it is a sign of what I think it's gonna be a dynamic Joe Biden most likely will be there wearing his breastplate backwards. More than we ever know. I think incoming fire coming from behind him, not in front of them. That's interesting. So the bad news is, the Republicans are taking the impeachment. Scenario seriously, according to a John and congressman Gates, who reported to him, But the good news is that the radicalism may be kept in check by the razor thin margins. We talked to Jonah Solomon, follow him right now. Jay Solomon reports and the Incredible Justin used dot com team that appears regularly every single day at Real Americans voice John last question I have for you today is you have been a truly Oh, you know a champion for the truth, especially the last few years, especially when it comes to Russia. Collusion allies in the hunter. Biden everything else. Are you worried about the next two years? Are you worried about what we've seen in the last 48 hours when it comes to suppression off the truth, especially on social media? How does a man running a media entity look to the next two years? I just wrote a whole column. Honest thing I am. I mean, the last election was won before Labor Day, 2020 by two things controlling the narrative to censorship so that Republican and conservative voices couldn't break through, like liberals and changing the roles of the election so that anything went when he came to November. 3rd and Republicans have to take a look at this dynamic and say, We have to take it back. How do you do that? Well, you got the Legislature's You'll take that you consent the rules for the election. Impose your well there, But in the other places they have to begin. Republicans get service have to begin to create an alternative communications infrastructure. That's just as good as his widespread just as popular as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube because those Platforms with you all fell in love with their fun. I've been great to be on well, they're now beginning to impose an ideological censorship agenda, and I think the way to beat it. It's just create alternate in America. Competition is the greatest fantasy and to wrongdoing, and I think that we have that opportunity now. For anyone who doesn't like censorship, build new platforms. There's crowd up. There's parlor There is rumble. The amazing new platforms People are going to be leaving Twitter and Facebook. I think that'll be the big story of 2021. The exit is on Facebook and Twitter and YouTube. And the rise of new alternatives that stay true to the American free speech free expression of rights that we have and enjoy it for 240 plus years. Well, a big name Dan Bongino. God bless in, just announced that he's leaving to it and he's gone to follow. We have our back up. We may be on Twitter. We may be on Facebook and YouTube. But where everywhere else is well, parlor rumble, you name it, so I always doubted. The capacity to create a free speech alternative to these platforms. But you know what? After the events of the last few days, I think it's going to happen, and it's going to be very robust. In the meantime, follow this man, Jason Lemon reports on Twitter.

And Doug thought it would be a good idea to put on a costume toe look like Will Ferrell from the movie Elf while meeting his father, who he had never met before. He even broke into the same awkward song from the movie. The Trouble is, John. How old that the dad didn't get the joke because he hadn't seen Elf?

"Have you come across any Democrats who was shadow band by Twitter or Facebook or anybody else? No way were the members of Congress that had been shadow band at this link, and there were not Democrats who have been similarly situated in the Congress, and so it is frustrating. To see the double standard and we face these very strong headwinds just to try to jail break the truth from the big tech over awards and at times from the fake news media. You know, something has to be done. Let's transition to another topic that we must discuss the left. We understand what the left's doing, and we expect them to do what they do because they believe in collectivization. They believe in small citizenship. Big government they believe in undermining your First Amendment rights of Second Amendment rights, but those who call themselves conservatives But who aren't maybe even worse. Talk to us about the Lincoln Project, Congressman Gates and the latest bombshell off the connections to these so called conservatives. The Lincoln Project is a collaboration of Republican consultants who have had a steady string of losses. They've lost campaigns. They've lost elections, they've lost the confidence of candidates and donors alike. And so instead, they repositioned themselves in the political industrial complex as the never Trumpers, the Republican since Trump and and they have, they have raised a lot of dark money they've raised. Money from other sources, and they have run ads criticizing the president from the right which is which is really quite ridiculous. You know that the president has accomplished It hears the breaking news. John Weaver, one of the founders of the Lincoln Project, registered as a foreign agent to advance the interests of a company from Russia. And that company is not in just any business. Dr Gorka, it's in the uranium business and hear him supplies business. And so here you got the very people who criticized Donald Trump for being a Russian agent. We spent nearly $40 million distracted the country for years on that nonsense, and now they take the position of criticizing President Trump and one of them literally wass, an agent for a Russian company, advancing their interests, the United States and by the way was this something that he did 5 10 15 years ago. You know where he was registering in 2019 to do this? And I think it just shows the hypocrisy of this Never trump crowd and it shows how hard establishment is working to stop the president, you know, and I might add. Part of that is smearing the people who advance the president's vision. And I do want to congratulate you, Dr Gorka on continuing your public service to help educate the next round of national security professionals. Within our government, But it really shows the contrast between those who are I think, putting the country first and service first. And those hypocrites who are just trying to make a buck, whether it's from Russia, or whether it's from people who hate the president. That's very kind. Thank you, Congressman Gates Following right now. Matt Gates. Rep. Mad Gates on Twitter That's really Russia collusion, but it's not with the Trump Administration is not with us in the White House. It's with the never trump is the fake conservatives in the last minute we have with you, Congressman. Let me ask you Is that somebody is finding a good fight every single day for America, Not just the people. The great state of Florida do the do the never Trumpers. Despite the millions they're getting from all kinds of sources, including Russia. Do they matter anymore? Are they going to matter the next 109 days? Or is it really just the socialist threat off the Democratic left? I think that this is going to be an election driven by enthusiasm and the never Trumpers. They're doing everything they can to try to suppress the trump movement, which I think is one of the great movements in American politics. And so if we are able to display our patriotism, love our president, get out there and fight for our country. Defend our history, defend our values. And I have every every belief that they won't matter at all and sloping in a real battle of ideas with the Marxist left. Listen.

"America, first with Sebastian Gorka, former strategist to President Donald J. Trump. We really playing the Superman theme. Fermat Gates. I know He's got a cool new podcast, but it's going to go to his head. It's not just gonna be red shoes. It's going to be a red cape. A CZ. Well, Congressman gates or you're gonna turn up in a red cape. Next time we see you in studio I thought Superman got canceled. Wasn't here like a symbol of white supremacy. Oh, yes. Whiteness. Why? I don't even know that we're allowed to play the superman music anymore. If we can't play the national anthem anymore of the times. Says that we have to play lean on me instead of the Star Spangled Banner. I don't know how they could possibly get away with Superman. Well, we have the really Superman on yesterday. Dean Cain, who was actually Japanese. Okay, when he played Superman and Lois and Clark. Now we're going to have to make do for a really world. Superman. Follow him right now Rip Matt gates of Florida and check out his Learning. New Red Hot podcast takes with Mad Gates. We have so much to discuss. Let's begin with the big news yesterday I was I was trying to post stuff after the show is on Twitter have a little bit of fun unwinding after the show. I couldn't post anything I said to my guys. Hey, what's with my account? Have I been suspended? My my, my, my guy, John said. It's melting or was. It knows Eric? It's melting. You can't do anything. They've been hacked now with Obama, with all these snowflakes being hacked yesterday. We found out some really interesting things afterwards, didn't we? Congressman Gates? Absolutely, Dr Gorka some of the screen shots that have been taken and posted around Twitter. We're going to be serving them up on our at Gates takes Twitter feed, which is where we have our podcast hot cakes with Mac AIDS, but put on there. We go through the screen shots that show the Twitter employees actually have buttons they compress to blacklist certain trends. Black was certain people black was certain words. And this dovetails very closely with the gorilla reporting that we've seen from Project Veritas where individuals who work to Twitter have been recorded saying, Yeah, you know, they see Make America great again. They see Trump They see America first, and they will suppress those messages. And now the first time as a consequence of the Screenshots from this hack were actually seeing the buttons, the displays the dashboards. They give the employees at Twitter, the ability to control what we see and what we think so that they can try to control how we act. This is really I think a A big time breaking news story. If all this is validated because Dr Gorka it goes to the very central argument the Twitter has made before Congress that they should enjoy special immunities that your radio program doesn't enjoy that a local newspaper doesn't enjoy because they don't alter or offer their own content there merely a platform. This goes directly against that claim. So for those of you who are not aware of what the Congress was talking about, please follow him on Twitter. Rep. Matt Gates. Also at Gate takes Gates is G E T Z. So there's reporting out there. Alan Bacary bright button elsewhere as a result of yesterday's hack certain Screenshots have been released. Off internal pages off Twitter workers where they have special button special options that they compress when it comes to your account, or on account of somebody they don't like on. These include Compromised. There's a tab called Compromised. There's a tab called Search black list. And trends blacklist. We've been told for years, There's no blacklisting. There's no secret algorithm that that senses conservatives. If these screen shots are true, we know that people have lined and Congressman Gates. We may have had people lie in front of Congress. To you on people who serve this nation about how how completely objective their platforms are. Is that a possibility? Well, if these Buttons. If this dashboard if it all is what it appears to be, it may very well be the case that Jack Dorsey offered perjury before the House Energy and Commerce Committee when he rejected the claim. That certain things were being blacklisted for these political reasons that I think you first have to very cleanly understand what's going on in these images that Breitbart's reported out of that others have shared on social media. So I you know, I'm not one to convict before due process. But I do think that when you look at Twitter's record, I mean they shadow band Four members of Congress during the Russia hopes Devin Nunes, Kim Jordan. You know Mark Meadows and Matt Gates. Now, I don't think that was a glitch in the system. I think that's very likely someone could have blacklisted elements of the auto complete in search for us. And potentially could be suppressing the truth that we're trying to share. And ultimately Dr Gorka the recon we care about These online platforms and fairness is because we simply want the opportunity to have a fair debate with the left. The left is doing everything they can to avoid that debate. Whether it's the cancel culture, whether it's the big tech bias, whether it's trying to make a suit our country by destroying our statutes on history, it's all about suppressing debate. What we just want the fair opportunity. To go in a patriotic Americans and show that that, in fact is the way for our country to be the best version of itself. He's Florida's congressman, Matt Gates. Rep. Mount Gates, It's hot takes with Mount Gates is the new podcast in all the work that you've done in monitoring and digging up the truth, in contrast to the full congressman who was shadow band, including yourself..

With one of the few true freedom fighters found that the handful the small number off individuals who have fought for the truth who have took the fight to the deep state on Capitol Hill, you know these names. One of the most out spoken is Florida Congressman Matt Gates with meant we discussed not only the extent of the corruption that all Americans must be aware ofthe, but perhaps Even more disturbing on the long run. Those on the right who profess to be conservatives who took a good game but have demonstrated over time have demonstrated. Over the last 3.5 4 years. The talk is all they have These individuals unjust as fake conservatives is the fake news is fake media. This is perhaps our longest term challenge. Will we have enough people on the right who have the backbone who have the courage like Congressman Gates? Not only to be committed to the truth but to stand up in public and push back on the lies on the propagandist and those who wish to subvert this. The greatest nation on God's Earth.

Why was it then, in May late may of 2018 that Trey Gowdy went on Martha MacCallum show and said that the FBI did exactly what all of our fellow Americans would have wanted them to do and that it had nothing to do with Donald Trump. Both of those things have now been proven to be not true. And it seems that God is brilliant lawyering back in 2017 that we're only able to see now proves those two statements untrue.

"Dirty deeds. Indeed. Well, Republican member of the house of representatives Matt gaetz decided that it would be a good time. The night before Michael cones public hearing to share a few bits of wisdom with the rest of us on Twitter. Let me read you what congressman gates had to say this on his Twitter account where he wrote, hey at Michael Kohn to one to of course, that's Michael Collins moniker. Do your wife and father in law know about your girlfriend's. Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she'll remain faithful when you're in prison, she's about to learn a lot there is home butts wrong with that tweet. It's hard to know where to begin the discussion, but let's just start with this any lawyer worth his or her salt is going to. Tell you that that is something that comes dangerously close to violating the law. It's witness tampering. It is attempting to intimidate a witness Michael cone is going to appear before the committee today, and what is Matt gaetz trying to do say. Hey, man, you better watch your step because we know things about you. We know you've got some girlfriends. You might wanna talk about it with your wife before the hearing. Because man, there's some ugly stuff that's gonna come out. Honestly, if that is not an effort to intimidate a witness. I really really don't know. What is I can tell you at the very least it very clearly violates an ethics rule of the house of representatives. Right right there for you to see if it if it doesn't lead to at least a censure on the floor of the house of representatives. Then it leads us to conclude what so many of us already conclude, and that is we have a congress that is just jam full of boneheads. I mean, seriously, what was this man thinking? Now, here's the big question. Was this part of a plan? Did he do this on his own or was this contrive by himself and other members Republican members certainly of the house of representatives possibly leadership to try and a nerve Michael Kohn before giving his testimony? Now, if you would ask me yesterday as this was all unfolding, I would've told you with absolute certainty that no member of congress would be stupid enough to put something like that up on Twitter on his own. It was just such an obviously ridiculous thing to do. That there's no way he does something like that on his own. He would have had to have consulted with other Republicans in congress, again likely leadership, certainly the leader of his committee. Before he would even think to come at the very least dangerously close to witness tampering witness intimidation. But you know, what? After a couple of hours of reaction to his tweet coming. I have to say from both sides of the aisle. It wasn't just the Democrats who were going crazy about this. There were quite a few Republicans going what you wrote what? Because they knew how incredibly stupid that. It was I actually now begin to think a little bit differently. I think that Matt gaetz might have done this on his own. Now, remember MAC is a guy with a long history of irresponsible behavior. Many. You is if you go online, you can see his his mugshot from one of his de wise, he's gotten out of everything why because he has a father who was both wealthy and a major player in Florida Republican politics. So every time he's gotten in trouble for irresponsible. Behaviour daddy has been there to bail him out. That's who Matt gaetz is. He's also somebody who has decided that it is in his best interest to be a solid supporter of President Trump. No matter what. So. Yeah. Given this guy's history of unbelievably irresponsible behavior. This is not a guy who often thinks I and reacts later putting up this tweet was truly one of the more remarkable things I've seen now obviously the heat got to him. Because by last night. He had posted a tweet, reversing course. But this happened only after Nancy Pelosi had posted her own tweet taking Representative gates to task for his behavior. Yeah. I gotta say, isn't it amazing? How politics twenty one thousand nine hundred is carried out on Twitter. It's astounding. Well, Representative gates after seeing what the speaker had to say. After hearing the gripes of both Democrats and Republicans stunned by his behavior, he returned to Twitter, and he wrote the following speaker. He's addressing Nancy Pelosi. I want to get to the truth to while. It is important to create context around the testimony of liars like Michael Kohn. It was not capitalized not my intent to threaten as some believe. I did I'm deleting the tweet, and I should have chosen words that better showed my intent. I'm sorry. Now, if there was ever a more disingenuous tweet in the history of Twitter, I want to know what it is how what different words would he chosen? He wrote in his original tweet that he was going to expose Mr. cone for having girlfriends, and he was going to do it with the man's wife sitting right behind him as he gives his testimony. You wanna tell me how you reword that to make better somehow seriously? I mean, I want to get to the truth to it was not my intent to threaten as some believe. I did I'm deleting the tweet, and I should have chosen words that better showed my intent. What was that? Intent Mr. gates. You should have chosen words to show your intent. Well, I think you chose exactly the words that you needed to show your intent, you told this man that you're ready to come and expose them and embarrass him in front of his wife. Unbelievable on believable. All I can say is this, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome. To congress twenty nine thousand nine hundred no not all members of congress. But I cannot recall a time when such a communication would have ever have been acceptable. And if the congress at the very least does not react. With at least a censure because this man has brought congress into disres- repute. Then I you know, let's just throw ethics out the window because they mean nothing any longer. All right. When we continue. We got lots more to talk about here on the Rick under show, and we will do that. Right. After this. One a rational conversation..
"congressman gates" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"I Bill Kristol. This is loathsome. It deserves the set. Of his colleagues, and perhaps of the house itself as a tempted intimidation of a witness testifying before a house committee more important, though, what does this say about the degree of panic among Trump allies about Cohen's testimony and Frank Figliuzzi fresh from career chasing organized crime figures among others in an organized crime family. The mobsters aren't loyal to the capo out of love and affection. They do his bidding out of fear. What is gates afraid of? I laid before you a question right now. What is house minority leader? Kevin McCarthy do with congressman gates is he going to allow one of his members to be out there on a limb? Saying this kind of thing about a witness appearing before a house committee. Also, a challenge for Democrats tomorrow. Can they draw blood politically with Mr. Cohen, and they keep it focused at this hearing can they actually walked through different issues to try to draw Cohen out because remember they have to make sure they're concentrating on Cohen's conduct. But also, President Trump. Conduct the not going to be able to veer into Russia issues. As reporter we all wish we could ask Mr. Cohen more about Trump Tower Moscow about different interactions with Russian figures. But because of the Muller investigation a lot of those questions have been walled off. So the Democrats have to pick their spots. Can they actually elicit new information that's both credible in politically earth-shattering to try to move the ball politically on President Trump in the investigation, and my euro lawyer here if you were starting a case in federal court tomorrow, and you had someone issue a tweet like this would you move for witness tampering? If I was a prosecutor. Yeah, I had it before me. Absolutely here the reality here that so we have to separate whether or not you have grounds to investigate whether or not there was a crime, you always have to establish in this context of witness tampering under the federal statute intent, right? So as we heard. Mike gate say publicly look his credibility is an issue. That is true. And I'm just saying that they're issues that you know, we could use to investigate his credibility. That tells you what a defense would say..
