"She backed away from the bishop. Confused murmurs rippled through. The crowd sinclair glared into the balcony. As did his congregation and cameras. Karen kept a softly weeping. Jimmy behind her while she glared back knowing in her heart that she done the right thing. Saving the bishops. Lie even if it meant killing. his movement. Police and media filled the heavenly duty pause on separate sides of yellow crime scene tape. The authorities searched for facts and statements to piece together the crazed events while reporters were willing to take what they could get from. Anyone willing to speculate. Karen spent four hours answering questions and by the end of it. All she knew should be answering questions for weeks to follow. Finally free to go. She met reggie in the plaza wanting nothing more than to see her apartment in bed before she got that. Wish there was one more piece of business. Her mother stood in the wash of bright lights with microphone shoved in front of her. Karen could not hear her statement but when separated from the media piranhas. She was clearly distraught. Stay here reggie. Karen left her friend. Jessica manning didn't notice her right away. Her gaze focused on the heavenly duty building. Mom her mother blinked as if awakened from a trance karen. Karen opened her arms to embrace. Mom stepped back. Do you hate me that much. Karen karen arms dropped suddenly heavy. Her mom said they're saying he's ruined. You know that don't you. They're saying all sorts of things. They who mom is saved his life. When i saw you in the balcony. I knew her voice became high. Her eyes were spotlights. I knew it was some devil. Trie that brought this blight on us. You've destroyed great man today and you've lost us a lot of souls. Mom shook her head disgusted. I'm sorry i gave birth to you. She disappeared into the crowd. Karen couldn't move. Stunned was not a strong enough word. A heavy hand fell on her shoulder she asked. Did you hear that he nodded. She's completely lost her. The rest of the words wouldn't come the sobs. Beat them out. Reggie held her the chaos while she wondered if all heroes cried like this on top of the heavenly duty dome two hundred feet in the air a hulking being with dark sharp is a security blazer watched the to embrace even from that distance. He could see the tears on karen's cheeks. He long comfort her but knew this was part of her trials and equally huge shadow materialize next to the being in the blazer. He fought a wave of disgust and prepared to be cordial. Those were the rules after all a toothy. Smile split the shadows face some day. Home markle yes i suppose. The darkness of the being swirled receded as it changed into another form. The previously indistinguishable shape formed a long black coat. Matching untucked shirt spit shine shoes and coal colored hair slicked back. Its skin was bronze. Its nose hawk. Like it could have been michael's twin with one exception. It had no is. I have to say it was a masterstroke getting the mother to send the prophet that sign bible. Good work tell him. I said so he already knows. I will not be delivering messages from you lou. No i guess you wouldn't. I will say. I was surprised to see you working behind the scenes here. I'd have thought this beneath you. I could say the same. Michael glared at his fallen brother. The morning star. He never stopped feeling sorrow for the vile creature. It's always good to get out and do a little of the old go ahead take a bite. Besides it gives the minions a break. They get disgruntled to michael's eyebrows arched like you once did lucifer did not answer and said instead i still one. I'd say the outcome here was better than my original plan. Of course you would your shortsighted. This churches destroyed without a leader. The people will scatter fall back into their old ways. My ways michael shook his head and chuckled. Some will yes. The rest will be strengthened by the pain and loss. They will learn that their faith was misplaced. They shouldn't believe in another man they should believe. In the teachings of he as for sinclair he was misled. He's human but his faith is genuine. His students will return. He'll be a better teacher for this. You'll see lucifer nodded and padded michael on the head with a hot hand. You have it all figured out. Don't you there's one problem. Though and that is a notable his escaped his throat. Sinclair was only a secondary.

Mr markham the nordic stepped out one hand digging in his jacket pocket to silence the cell. I didn't know you was coming up here. Jimmy said markham grasped jimmy shoulder. Just wanted to make sure you're all right right as rain ready to do. The lord's work. Karen watched tried to figure her next move. Unfortunately it wasn't hers to figure behind markham the shadows swirled and solidified into a hulking man. Shape the thing she'd seen in sinclair's office. It drifted toward her quickly. She had no time to react. It hovered before her still radiating heat like a furnace then it reversed its direction sailing toward markham until the to nearly touched a second later. It faded like smoke as if tap on the shoulder. Markham turned in her direction. There was no way he could see her but she knew he was aware of her presence. Thanks to his dark friend stay here. Jimmy markham approached his hands slipping inside his jacket. He reappeared with a large saw tooth knife. Just out of jimmy's line of sight. She stood exposing herself knowing she couldn't outrun him and choosing not to try. Is your name really markham. She said are you a member of that area and church or did they just hire you to kill bishops and clear. Markham tints did her knowledge. Hey lady jimmy said. His voice cheery. That's just a game. The bishop ain't gonna die. God wouldn't let him. God doesn't have anything to do with this. Jimmy right mr marcum. Marcum closed the gap between them and his blade seemed grow. Karen rounded the seat. She'd used for cover keeping them between her and him. I don't know who you are lady but you picked the wrong sunday to show up in church. Markham said she kept probing her mind for some sort of saving grace. She could scream but she doubted it would even register over the noise of the increasingly crowded. Sanctuary her only defense at the moment was her mouth. You'll be gone when it's over when the bishops dead. When jimmy's dead they'll look for markham and find out. He doesn't exist wicked but smart. I'll give you that. I don't know who tipped you but you're not going to stop. this markham. Said three bodies are just as simple as two with one hand. He grabbed the corner of the seats and toss them aside removing the barrier between them. He fainted and she scrambled back several steps. Her back to jimmy mr markham. Why you got that knife. Jimmy asked markham said. Shut your mouth. You think he's still going to shoot for you. Karen kept backing up. An idea in mind doesn't matter if he shoots her not those guns a barret m one zero seven. I chose it because it's one of my favorites. I'll do fine without the dummies assistance. Why did you call me that. Mr markham jimmy asked. I ain't dumb. No karen confirmed syncing. His hurt feeling it. You aren't jimmy. Volcanic applause erupted blow. Welcome to the first annual power and purpose conference here at heavenly duty. Karen was startled. Not from the whooping and hollering. But by the speaker's voice she spared a glance over the rail and caught a glimpse of her mother behind the podium. The man. i'm about to introduce jessica. Manning continued but cairn's attention shifted. Her distraction gave markham in opening. He advanced ready to cut her. And jimmy both i eight. No dummy jimmy screened almost at random. It seemed it gave care and an idea. Jimmy hold my hand. She said realizing if this gambit did not work she'd have no time to regret her error. Jimmy grasped her palm for the first time that day. She took control instead of a spontaneous vision. She summoned her ability. Willingly peered into jimmy's past. He is an idiot. Stupid son of a bitch fucking retard boys surround him after school. this is the past. But it's bright and clear remembered. Well there fists fall but their words hurt more the year shift the setting changes the attackers change but the violence and the taunts remain filtered through a mind. Like jimmy's these boys and men are hungry. Monsters they're sustenance is his anguish and karen blinked. That was her gift. The ability to be in both places. The present and jimmy's mind at the same time. Markham moved towards them his knife leading but his movements were slow to her. Anyway the blade came at her. She sidestepped easily. Her free hand struck out and grasped markham's beer wrist and that instant she became a circuit. A transmitter of gyms vision. All of jimmy's torment became part of markham through her visions weren't meant for him. Were too much for his mind to grasp he tried to snatch away but karen held strong in this manner. She was the mighty. It's my pleasure. Karen her mother say through it all to bring you a true man of god. Rise to your feet and welcome bishop. Horace sinclair applause. Rooms the loudest yet. Karen continued pumping visions into market. His knife. clatters of hit the ground is free. Hand flew to his head and tore. It has platinum hair snatch the images out of his skull. Karen let him go. Markham arrived and spun screaming. I m me me. i ain't no dummy. He spun over the balcony rail there was a mighty ragged as his body fell onto the bandstands destroying a set of drums. Clang like misplayed. Note the applause for sinclair ceased someone screen carrying over the rail at the broken twisted form that needs to be marking the call sinclair demand demanding then to television. Kill the cameras. The red lights atop the cameras continued to go. Kill the sinclair's chest exploded. Karen's mother ran to half shrieking sinclair staggered his expression shocked and none viewing the wound over his heart. Like there was an odd bug on his shirt. The squibb had gone jessica.

"Of course. She's a senior pastor here good. I'm her daughter karen manning. His eyes floated away then back to her. She didn't need psychic abilities to read the expression. He was skeptical. Well she would've left. Your tickets at the will call table. The doors will open it in our and you can. She dug into her handbag produced her ticket. I have this. I'm curious if my mother is here yet. I need to tell her something. His skepticism shifted to suspicion. I wouldn't have any way to confirm senior staff's arrival. That's not part of my job. I do know. Ms manning has a phone. I'm sure her daughter would have the number. She felt him shut down. The tunnel of cooperation contracted to a pinhole. The indirect approach wasn't going to work. Excuse me he turned away. Wait del raised an eyebrow in what now expression. I'm going to tell you something. I'm not crazy and here. She raised her ticket and toward half. I'm not even going in. So don't think i'm the one who's going to give you trouble but your security and if you choose not to act the consequences will be on you. Miss your making any sense. She linked close unwilling to let anyone else here. Someone's going to shoot horace and clear. They're going to do it when he goes on stage to open the conference. You have to warn him. Dale took a step back has expression was stone. Please care felt the tears coming. You have to believe me. don't move. The guard turned away and spoken to a communicator attached to his cuff. Karen could not hear what was said but when he faced her he nodded. Come with me. It was her. Turn for skepticism. Where someone wants to speak to you my mother. He shook his head and his face glowed eerie reverence. Bishops sinclair del ushered her inside heavenly duty through the front door. Some onlookers rushed the entrance and were halted by more guards. Curious shouting turned angry screams. Karen barely noticed this place. Marble tiled ceilings fifty feet high gold light fixtures with crystal ornaments a glass wall overlooking a sunken sanctuary. Concession stands a bookstore credit union employment office full service restaurant daycare and over the entrance to the worship hall a gargantuan portrait of the good bishop it was like the sistine chapel in staple center thrown in a blender and reggie's words. Holy leash it. This way miss del motion to an unmarked corridor. She shook off her all and followed. The hallway took them to a steel door marked private. Dale clipped his. Id badge and passed it. Over an electronic scanner mounted on the wall it buzzed and a bolt retracted in the frame. The door swung outward revealing brightly lit stairway. karen looked to the guard uncertain. It's all right. He said they ascended to heavenly duties. Second-floor this new level was less religious regal and more like a corporate call center gray carpet lead through a bay of unmanned cubicles on the far wall a series of locked doors barred them from darkened offices but one office was open and well lit wait here. Dale entered the room and closed the door. Karen was anxious but relieved. She'd never expected someone to actually listen and take action. Cooperation was so rare when it concerned things yet to pass the door open. Dale motioned her in as he left casting furtive glances over his shoulder. This office resembled the royal decor of heavenly duties lobby rich carpet. High ceilings. oil paintings in the patriarch himself. Bishop sinclair stared through his window. Troubled though it had been years since she'd been in his presence she believed time had taken a greater toll on her than him he had to be near the half-century mark but didn't look a day over thirty five. He wore gold frame spectacles over hazel eyes and only a few renegade strands of gray could be seen in his goatee. He offered a strange smile. When he told me jessica manning's daughter wanted to see me. I was a bit startled. I hope i don't offend you by saying this. But it's been so long since i last saw you. I've forgotten about you. Heat seared her cheeks. She hoped her complexion hid her blush. It has been awhile hasn't it. you've grown into a very beautiful woman. The spitting image of your mother. It was an honest compliment. Flattering with not even a hint of salaciousness with that karen got a glimpse of how a woman could become undone by the praise of such a powerful man somehow. She couldn't convince herself he ever took advantage of the affections of the women in his flock. He was one of the good ones and was going to save his life. As happy as i am to see you. Dale gave me some troubling information. He says it came from you. She swallowed yes. Someone i think someone is going to. He held up a hand not here. He motioned to the window and for the first time she noted the people on rooftops of a building in the distance the people and their cameras. Bishops glare rose and closed the blinds. It's funny there was a time. When only movie stars had to worry about paparazzi. Our country is so consumed with celebrity. The saying should be in tabloids. We trust bishop. He stopped her again. There was a newspaper article a few years back during the time. Mayor peppers was running for his second term. I spoke openly against his policies so he attempted to discredit me. Things i said in private appeared in the article out of context. At first i thought someone in my senior staff was leaking information. We later found out my office had been bugged that was taken into consideration when we design this building. The bishop move to what she assumed was a bear wall. He pressed on the plaster. Some sort of locking mechanism clicked and crevice appeared a hidden room. Gum he said. It's safe to talk in here. She stepped inside awed by the level of intrigue the bishops type of celebrity demanded. The room was a scaled down version of the main office. There was a desk small bookshelf. Console of security monitors and a work table littered with circuits and tools that smelled of oil. It was an odd set up the work table. More than the rest. But she's supposed it served its purpose especially today. As soon as he closed the door she vomited the words. Don't ask me how. I know what i'm about to say but you have to believe that there's going to be an attempt on your life. Someone's going to shoot you in front of your congregation. If you don't do something dear lowered. He needed his face was stiff fingers. That's what dale said. I prayed he'd gotten mixed up. It's true i swear. He side nodded. I believe you child at his desk. He scooped up the phone and thunder red button on. Its face mr markham. Come to the back room. Please bring jimmy with you. He placed the receiver back in the cradle. Who did you call our chief of security. His statement could have been an introduction for as soon as he said it the lock disengaged a linebacker sized blue eyed behemoth entered the room. His hair was long platinum and slicked back. A stark contrast bishop and the mostly black heavenly duty congregation. He looked nordic odin without the eye. Patch a shorter frailer blonde. The bottle variety. His die job was terrible. Tailed him once they were all in. The room felt too tight and hot. Karen found it difficult to breathe as if these men didn't just inhale the air but.

"From the breakfast table sobbing leaving her grandparents perplexed. Jessica came to a room. A sullen look on her face. Karen felt horrible for her mother. If karen felt this bat and she tried to help that man the guilt must have been destroying. Jessica who ignored the warning. The sympathy for her mother dried up quickly though. See what you've done mom asked. Karen was more confused than ever. We can sometimes speak things into being. That's why it is of the utmost importance to keep our minds focused on god and positively like bishops sinclair says. I don't know what made you tell that story yesterday. But she trailed off perhaps realizing the insanity of her logic. If only four moment. I don't want you to blame yourself. It must have been darren's time. The lord works in mysterious ways. Got no better over the years as she and her mother grew further apart. The visions grew stronger. Clear as an adult. She had more control over her ability. Amir touch wouldn't trigger the visions not unless the premonition was so horrible learn. Defenses could not fend it off like now. She tried to call her mother. Got her voicemail. Today is the day that the lord is made. You have reached the voicemail of jessica manning. I'm unable to take your call right now. But if you karen clicked end resile the number and let it ring three times. Today is a day voicemail again. Damn it reggie hovered over her. She often found comfort in his presence. His bulky girth and fuzzy beard always reminded her of blue the bear from the jungle book. It was what she loved most about him but today there was no comfort to be found. He fumbled for words. Are you sure about what you saw. Her eyes narrowed and he dropped his gaze. They'd known each other long enough. Been through enough for him to know her visions were never wrong. She paced the length of the apartment unsure of what to do next. She'd learned long ago. The police weren't an option she'd be written off as a nut and if the shooting went down her advanced knowledge would propel her to the top of the suspect lists if she could just get a hold of her mother despite their differences. Jessica manning like reggie knew her daughters visions were always on point even if she hated admitting it mom would make sure bishops sinclair was out of harm's way she valued his life over her own. Probably even over mine. Karen thought bitterly. She shook it off and try. Mom's phone again. Today is no luck reggie do. You have a suit unfortunately. Why because if. I can't get my mom on the phone tonight. We have to figure out a way to save horsing clear. He nodded slowly. Okay again suit. Why you're going to be my date to the power and purpose conference. The next eighteen hours were a blur of brainstorming. Caffeine and anxiety. Karen kept touching the autograph bible unsure of what she hoped to see. There were no more visions freeing her of this burden as far as our extraordinary gifts were concerned. Poor sinclair would die before his congregation. If she did not act it was eight in the morning before she gave into the inevitable. Go home and change reggie by nine thirty. Reggie was wedged in the passenger seat of her toyota. Prius looking like a clown car passenger was the plan. I don't know exactly talked security. Try to use mom's name for leverage. Sounds like a long shot. Maybe not she turned onto northwest boulevard. It would bring them up on the tail end of the new heavenly duty building. It's early conference doesn't start until eleven. Maybe we can make them listen if they're not too concerned with the crowd yet. Maybe as the blocks in the building sailed past them. karen couldn't help but notice. How dead portside was this early. On a sunday all was still the only movement was the wind through the branches of trees planted in the sidewalk in a way. It was ominous as if she was already too late. And instead of having the death of horror sinclair on her conscience it was the demise of the world that she'd failed to thwart karen. You will get this right. you're here. There's no crowd you'll get to a garden. Everything will be alright as they crested. The last block of squat buildings the gray shell and regal blue dome of the heavenly duty worship center floated into view. It was modern architecture at. Its finest a ball giant among square trolls. The air conditioning units alone were the size of karen's apartment. This is going to work. She whispered then. They pass the heavenly duty worship center and got a look at the front plaza. Holy shit reggie twisted in his seat and karen filter heart sink as she eased her car. To a halt there were hundreds possibly thousands of worshippers crowding the plaza. Bustling and conversing raising their arms in praise of the lord. They were joyful and emotion. Karen could not share these people. This crowd would slow her down possibly prevent her from doing her job and somewhere among them was a killer who would not be deterred. Find a place to park she said. I'm going to wade through this. See if i can track down someone. Insecurity reggie glance toward the throngs of people. Are you sure about this. She tried to look sure. I'll be fine. He was wedged behind the wheel of the tiny car looking even more awkward than he did in the passenger seat. How will i find you. Karen hilda pursell. You've got the number. She rounded the car and sank into the growing crowd of parishioners who looked like modern day royalty in the morning light karen blended well her enthusiasm for dress. Up was only slightly better than reggie's but attendance here required a little more than casual attire. She donned her tan linen. Pantsuit with a white blouse beneath one of the outfits. She kept on reserve for special occasions. Preventing homicide wasn't on her list of possible affairs when she purchased it but good fashion was prepared for anything. Her outfit looks in general war on her mind because it was on the mind of people men. She passed to find security. She wasn't a mind reader not by a long shot. she supposed. Her ability fell into the impact category. But even that was more glamorous than the reality of it every woman knew when she was being ogled it was an instinct developed around the same time. The body began to mature making a young girl a target for the scrupulous and unscrupulous alike for karen. It was a million times worse with her talent. Every unwelcome pair of eyes felt like a feather light hand pawing her flesh. She was subconsciously aware of every part of her body being assessed as she passed. Even the subtlest voyeur. Her face is breath stomach hips but and more often than she cared to consider her feet. She didn't even own a pair of open toed shoes. She'd learned long ago when her abilities were in their infancy. That this type of visual molestation was the nature of man that reason she usually avoided crowds. Something else she learned long ago. It was rarely any better at church with her skin crawling. She forced her way through. Suppressing the urge to scream there were times in the past when she hadn't been so successful and outburst here could ruin her chances. Stay cool girl thirty yards ahead. She spotted what she was looking for. He was tall in life in a navy. Blue blazer with the heavenly duty crest on his sleeve a wire coiled out of his collartoo abud in his ear secret service style as she approached. She felt her mind slip into a prayer her first one in a long time. Please god let this work. The guard faced her and immediately began undressing her with his eyes. She ignored the discomfort and went into her spiel. Excuse me sir. She is the name tag on his left label. Dale he smiled. What can help you with miss. Do you know jessica manning..

"Synthesizer music and a mass choir saying from her television speakers. It had to be your fiftieth time seeing the ad but it still entranced her. Just like the first karen. Un here her best friend. Reggie had a key to replace and no problem letting himself in. I'm coming into your bedroom. Don't be naked. He stuck his head in visibly relieved that she was indeed clothed and pajamas. His attention shifted to the screen. Is this it where karen pointed to the right of the screen as the video cut to a group of four three men one woman. That's her and blue. You look alike. She glared and turned up. The volume cumby enlightened at this four day celebration in conference at the grand opening of the new heavenly duty worship center. Horace sinclair invites you to change your life for now and forever bishop horace sinclair spiritual leader to thousands. Perhaps millions when you counted as television ministry. That's who the ad campaign was really for sinclair's power and purpose conference had been in the works for the last two years set to coincide with the grand opening of his new worship hall heavenly duty. It was a fifty million dollar mega church designed to hold a congregation of thirty thousand in the spiritual community. It was the biggest of big deals. All of the celebrities of gospel ministry and evangelism would be in attendance. Plus a crowd of eager worshippers could rival a super bowl audience including cairns enraptured mother. Her mom had been a loyal follower of the good bishop for most of karen's life from his original services in high school gyms to his first church in the suburbs of portside virginia. To now jessica. Manning was a servant to god i and horace sinclair second over the year. She established a place in the good bishops inner circle thus her prominent appearance in the power and purpose adds her access to church resources and the bishop himself had many of the other church members particularly the women dipping into the envy bucket of the seven deadly all despite having a daughter like karen. The ad ended with ticket and contact information. Though karen was willing to wager. There were no more tickets. It was long rumored the conference would sell out wasn't like there was much time left. It started tomorrow. She clicked the television off and turn to reggie will he asked. She raised an eyebrow. Well what are you going. Her gaze flitted to the two tickets wedged into the molding over her mere front row seats gift. For mom she shrugged. I think you should. He said i know what you think. It's easy for you to think that you didn't grow up with her. She searched for a word. Powerful enough to construe the years of degradation. She suffered at her mother's hands rants. She threw more scriptures in my face than those crazy apocalypse. Guys on the corners. Downtown things could be different now. I've seen bishop sinclair on. Tv and he focuses strongly on forgiveness. Maybe your mom has forgiven me. Her voice was hot venom. What exactly is she. Forgiving me four. Reggie he raised his hands. One palm out the other grasping a large padded manila envelope. It will never be said that reggie the wise does not know when to shut up. Karen angry at reggie for going where she didn't want to go but equally mad at herself for being angry at reggie hopped off the bed and disappeared into our walk in closet. It was easier to cool off when she couldn't see anyone when she couldn't feel the waves of emotion. Wafting off of them. She tugged the days. Close off hangers. What's that envelope you're holding. Don't know i grabbed your mail on the way up. Open it as she sifted through her denim. She heard the envelope rip. Then speak of the reggie caught himself and then finished. It's from your mom. She found him holding a leather bound. Bible and sheet of paper. Her note says god told me to send you this figures he cracked the bible's cover chuckled. What she asked. It's autographed by horace sinclair. The guy autographed bibles. The cynic in her nearly overloaded. Let me see. Reggie tossed it tour immediately. Took a turn for the worst. She felt the warmth immediately. The heat spread from her hands of her arms hit her chest and went supernova through the rest of her body. Reggie in her. Bedroom blinked away. There were people too many people. The aisles are choked. Some rush to the exits and others rushed the stage. There is already a crowd there though they huddle over someone she cannot see she can see. The blood drips over the edge of the stage. There's crying so much crying in the huddle. She sees her own face. Crows feet clutch the corners of her eyes and her mascara smeared. Karen doesn't wear makeup and she's yet to develop her first wrinkle. This is her mother's face horrified behind mom a banner of ten foot tall letters read power and purpose a sloppy bright red splatter fills the oh and power as if painted by child who hasn't yet learned to color inside the lines all becomes quiet the crowd at the stage including her mother turned to her and stare with pleading eyes she looks past them to what they conceal before a man with a ragged hole in his chest lies motionless gone from this world. Chorus sinclair the bible smack floor. Karen leapt backward banging her head against the closet door. She went lent in slid to her but her legs felt like cooked spaghetti and her breathing was ragged. Reggie knelt over her but did not touch not yet. What did you see. Someone's going to the images. Were still fresh in her mind. Still shocking ones going to kill horse and claire adrenaline flow through her. She sprang to her feet and sprinted around reggie in search of her cell had to call mom and her wake she heard reggie say why is it. Never the winning lotto numbers. The first time it happened she was eleven years old. They've been visiting her grandparents and in a small close knit community. Where most folks knew jessica manning and her precious little daughter. Karen it happens in the market when jessica bumped into an old friend from high school and began to chew the man's ear about her new church heavenly duty. Her is glossed over before he politely excused himself claiming a forgotten appointment. It was good to see you again. Jessica he shook moms hand then turned to karen you too little bear. He patted her head and she cringed not from the odd nickname but from the pictures flashing suddenly through her mind. She saw the man on a ladder trimming branches on a tree. An electrical line was tight rope through the foliage. He did not notice the wire until his trimmers into it and then it was too late. The man quickstep to the checkout line. Leaving jessica in his dust and karen nearly in tears. Mom he's in trouble. Mom's attention was on a leafy head of lettuce. You got that right. You can tell. He don't know jesus no. She told her mother which he instinctively knew to be the man's fate. If no one interceded on his behalf jessica manning her daughter out her expression unchanging. When karen was done jessica. Karen thought her mother would stop the man before he got away instead. She said i won't have you making up any more stories. No i'm not making it up. I saw it only. God can see the future little girl now. Stop this nonsense. karen panicked. She didn't want the man to get hurt and she also knew her mother said wasn't true she'd learned otherwise in sunday school. What about prophets. Mom they can her mother's palm cut off the words like a severed limb the slap echoed in aisles. Don't you ever try turn in the teachings of the lord to support lies.

Something about myself could be. Adhd you could also be like having a lot going on and it's hard like i find it really hard to Concentrate sometimes to just now. I was like overwhelmed by the amount of things that need to do. So i like we'll pause and be like okay need to get this done first and then i'm going to get to the next thing. Even though my brain is telling me you're frazzled and overwhelmed like you know. And so then i just i'll write it down what i need to do so most like i've created a system for my adhd. If i have it. I don't even know but it could be. It could just be. You are juggling so many things like we're not really meant to multitask this much yet. But like i'm not really these. Aren't that hard hard.

Go about tasks like the way i do. Things is what we like. Not in a sensible order as you know. I don't understand steps you know So yeah i don't know it was kind of like enlight and then i was gotten to this place where i was observing myself. Do stuff and became a entertaining. Yeah it's like. Wow i could just watch me like a movie all day. Okay i kind of have announced going in the process of this planning for this trip. I was like on the coming back from l. A. and seeing like how i looked in Like photos or whatever. I immediately had this thought. Like oh my god like i should probably like work out a law before this vacation or like i dunno. Try to look a little better. Like just in case but then i was like kiss but then i was like then i thought to myself. I'm like okay. I'm not going to actually make any progress like noticeably. In the next two weeks the best i would do would feel a little bit better in my own skin. Like or like diablo. Two little bit if i did just more exercise but then i thought like okay. But it's not worth ruining by healthy relationship with food during the vacation. Because i liked decided to restrict for the next two weeks so that i could like lose one pound before not even like substantially changed myself and men have a very and then feel on the vacation out of control and then feel like died. Starts tomorrow when i get back so i feel like i like the not like our trying to be less insecure batch. I do feel that. I stop the cycle as early as i could. That's great thank you. That's my downscale absolutely pound. Does what does it. Who cares happens exactly like like work like i'm trying to constantly remind myself working out is like like how we talked about with jessica. Men like it's supposed to sort of spark joy While also like doing good things for your health not like a way of making yourself look different. I mean it's okay to wanna look different. Just look different for the sake of looking thin. You know right well. It's just sort of like but one week is not crash. Doc right like i like every time. I do have the sort of temptation to be like. Let me restricts like udi. Better repair strict did i do. I have gone to reminding myself like this will backfire. Like i know will backfire. Yeah and just like take it slow and steady with. Oh but my dietitian tolmie. She thinks that. I have sort of gone over a hump in terms of food neutral neutrality. Oh what was the hump. Meaning like she thinks it kind of mass like almost mastered. She thinks that. I've really made progress there with actually neutralizing food. That's great based on like things. I told her so. That's a win will. But i'm not to my body so it's fine. It's a long process. butts your nonce kelvin. Nine scale win Mine on skill win is that i have been a little bit more Like what's the word first of all my brain is just. Does it string thoughts together at this point. Like i can't fuck in thank Pregnancy brain israel Everyone tells me that doesn't go away and sometimes gets worse. It doesn't get much worse but like mom marine is very challenging But i hate that. I hate that term to be honest late. it's real. i know it's real. But i hate that. It gets like it just makes it. I think that it really minimizes like the work of mother to call it like pregnancy brain and mom brain like like as if you're blaming the very important thing i agree like lack for your lacking 's i picked up. I think it's fucked up the term. The terminology is fucked up. I'm it's like. It's i don't think it's fake. It's definitely a real thing. But i think that like to be like calling it. Mom brain is like okay. Well what about all the things that you're the mom is doing that. You're not let like had taken the place of the thing right and a lot of i read some things also about how like a lot of like psychologically or like That your brain is sort of making space for allowing yourself to to to make this child survive uniting put. You didn't have before 'cause writing. Were responsible for yourself and so it has to the like the neural pathways lake shift. I don't i didn't like fact. Check us but it sounds like it. Regardless of whether or not make sense. I sounded it made me feel better but a lot of the time like pregnancy brain is like from extreme. Just like stress or like. There's a lot of things happening and it's just kind of like it's hard for me to deal with and so these last few this last week i've been feeling very in tune with how i'm feeling so and i've been recognizing it and not judging it so if i feel like overwhelmed aleksei it and tell rusty our If i feel like i feel disconnected from the fact that like i have to give birth like that's scares the shit head of me.

Only certain number of the people will commit suicide in general. Yeah so i would. I would agree with that as you know. The the people who are going to be successful are going to do. The things that they have been told are successful. Thanks and doing heroin is definitely not in that list. Generally is it possible to do heroin and be successful short. But now you're talking about a sweet little thin layer. You don't know who those people are because they're successful. They don't check into a drug clinton because they're not addicted. I know not. None of them are doing heroin. They tell you a lot of heroin are successful with the hell you realize. How are you doing heroin. Okay tell me business because heroin is basically the same thing as percocet. How many people do you know pop purpose perkins set once every while every now and again. Because they're doing heroin is they're just doing a small amount of it is is a wine cooler. The same thing as bathtub. Gin is it the same chemical yes. Well yes yes yes. There's ethyl alcohol in it. But there's a difference between consuming taking a percocet and taking heroin that you've bought off the the one. Would you say is higher quality in terms of purity in terms of being exactly what it advertises. I'd say the purchase within that wouldn't be the most addictive right if it's the best drugs wh what do you mean what went well. It seems to me as percocet addictive. Absolutely oh god is it heroin. No it is free. Heroin malta of peo. An opiate is a synthetic what heroin is. It's the same high okay. Don't think percocet after the show. I'll shock okay. So lemonade and coca-cola both can change. Sugar they are not the same drink. You don't get it so you're absolutely right. I don't somebody who's a productive person like this. Dr carl hart the reason why it's shocking that he's admitting that he uses heroin is because people believed that you cannot possibly use heroin and in a responsible manner there was a guy that called this show years ago who said he was a weekend warrior of heroin. We were all i wonder. If he's addicted now will you'll have to ask him but it doesn't seem like carl hart is addicted and again. This is part of the problem that he's trying to address here. Is that whenever you bring up. Certain drug automatically. Everybody thinks oh. You must be a drug addict. So why so what yes. You're you're evidencing it here in what you're saying. Why would somebody who you know who productive person who uses heroin on a recreational basis. Admit to you or admit to that. They use it to jump to a conclusion about them. That's your normalized. The behavior i would do that. I would protect. Somebody's identity be told me but that doesn't mean that you wouldn't think things about them that doesn't mean that they you wouldn't think that they're an addict of heroin. Like you just suggested the guy that was using it responsibly. You said well. How do you did now.

After complaining of Chest Pains Weinstein was found guilty last month of raping an aspiring actress. Jessica man in a hotel room in two thousand thirteen and if sexually assaulting production Assistant Mimi Halley at his apartment in two thousand six by forcibly performing oral sex on her attorney. Gloria allred read from Haley's victim's impact statement outside the court just after Weinstein sentencing. I have observed an indifference a lack of remorse. A lack of acknowledgment a lack of awareness and self awareness by the defendant throughout this process. That has made me feel anger. That has left me concern that. He is completely disconnected from the gravity of the crime that he committed against me and the impact. It's had I can only hope that whatever sentence the court sees fit is long enough for Harvey Weinstein to acknowledge what he's done and to be truly. Sorry Actress Mira Sorvino Tweeden response.

Testimony alleging past Weinstein sexual assaults bolstered difficult case
"Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist we can talk about the various counts that the jury found him guilty or not guilty on yesterday but in plain English Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist also in plain English my next guest former New York sex crimes prosecutor Jane manning is quoted in The Washington Post today saying this is one of those days when the whole world changes let's talk about how with me now is Jane manning director of advocacy for the group women's justice now which campaigns for better prosecution and prevention of violent crimes against women and provides direct services to survivors as they navigate the criminal justice system she helped lead successful campaigns to repeal New York statute of limitations on rape cases and to criminalize strangulation attacks Jane thank you so much for joining us thank you so much frame how much do you think one man being convicted of crimes yesterday is the story and how much do you really think the whole world changed well this one story will have huge ripple effects for the whole world it tells survivors that there is hope for justice it tells sexual predators that no one is above the law and it tells prosecutors that if you're brave and you take difficult challenging cases to trial you may be able to succeed a New York times op ed today says that Mr Weinstein sixty seven that that he even stood trial was a remarkable anomaly a vast majority of sexual assault cases never reach the court now but this outcome is not an end point while there may never be another prosecution quite like the one of Mr Weinstein the article says increasingly we'll see others that resemble it and so my question is if you agree with that what kinds of trials may get brought that may not have were it not for this case it's such a great question and the answer I think is that's up to all of us it's up to prosecutors who make those decisions dated day whether to turn down cases of rape unless they're a slam dunk win which happens in all too many DA's offices but it's also up to the rest of us in our communities because DJs are elected locally and it's up to us in our communities to sound off and make sure the candidates for district attorney and incumbent district attorneys understand that fair and vigorous prosecution of rape is something that the community holds to be important here's Gloria Allred speaking yesterday the lawyer or one of the lawyers for the accusers in this case it's no longer business as usual in the United States this is the age of empowerment of women and you can intimidate them anymore because women will not be silenced they will speak up they will have their voice they will stand up and be subjected to your small army of defense attorneys cross examining them attempting to discredit them two million eight them shame them and they will still stand in their truth so Harvey Weinstein this just this has been a long time coming but it's finally here attorney Gloria Allred yesterday and she's a lawyer but she wasn't speaking just legally is there or in technical legal terms I think she was talking about cultural change yes she was and I'm so glad that she anchored her comments around the survivors who testified in who spoke out because to the extent that this verdict offers us a chance at broad social change and and the only chance that depends on what we do with it but we all have that chance to the women who spoke out about Harvey Weinstein and especially the women who testified in court the two who received convictions and the many women who didn't receive a conviction including Annabella Sciorra and can I say something about her case she testified in this case as somebody who is also a victim of Harvey Weinstein but I guess because the statute of limitations laws could not that case could not be prosecuted right that case could not be prosecuted and moreover the counts that depended on Annabella sh your as testimony as a predicate offence of preceding offense those were counts of the jury felt him not guilty on and a lot of people will wonder what does that mean that the jury didn't believe Annabel sure are and I just want to say it doesn't necessarily mean that many observers felt that Annabella sh your was extremely credible and probably the most corroborated of all the witnesses who testified and the jury's verdict might have had something to do with hello how many years back the case stretched one of the first questions was about the statute of limitations and Annabel sure his case and that might have been their concern it doesn't mean that they didn't believe her but what I want people to know is that her testimony mattered it supported the accounts of Mimi Haleyi and Jessica man and after I heard the verdict yesterday I spent a lot of time thinking about Annabel shura and I was worried and I thought maybe she felt a sense that the jury didn't believe her and and then I read her quote and here's what she said she said my testimony was painful but necessary I spoke for myself and with the strength of the eighty plus victims of Harvey Weinstein in my heart and when I heard those words Brian it's filled my heart and I knew that at all sure it was going to be okay but on the chance that like a good New Yorker she listens to the Brian Lehrer show I I didn't want to say this to Annabella I wanted to say would you also keeping your heart my thanks and the thanks of a multitude of people who believe you and honor you your testimony mattered and it made a difference how much do you thing believing women that phrase that we've heard so much kind of flipped from where generally has been historically injuries they have to believe the accounts of what happened that Harvey Weinstein denied and they had to believe them even in light of some of the narrative which would have prevented cases like this from being brought in the past as I understand it that they kept in touch with him that there was consensual sex after the non consensual sex that in one case a woman who change phone numbers one of the accusers even gave him her new phone phone number these would have been things in the past that would have let juries to disbelief what changed I think the jury in this case worked really hard they had testimony read back they took days to deliberate and I think that ultimately they were persuaded by the evidence that showed that one of the victims many have late was financially dependent on her relationship with Harvey Weinstein she needed to keep on good terms with him in order for her career to keep going the other victim Jessica man had a situation that was more complicated she was in a relationship with him and relationship violence is something that can be very hard to understand but it's very real and I think the fact that the clearly the jury took their time with that case as well and ultimately they didn't convict him of rape in the first degree they convicted him of rape in the third degree which I think reflects what we want jurors to do they listen they fought they struggled and I think they ultimately reached a verdict that showed careful reflection and attention to the evidence which you as a former prosecutor talk to the difference between first degree and third degree rape so he was convicted on third degree rape which as I understand it involves in the sale and having sex with someone without their consent where as first degree rape requires forcible compulsion be proof what's the difference between forcible and without their consent yeah so forcible compulsion first degree rape requires what the law describes as for sufficient to overcome lack of consent there is a sense of being physically over powered by the person and Jessica man did describe a situation in which she was physically over powered by Harvey Weinstein and the jury I think had legally sufficient evidence to convict on account if they had chosen to do so but they didn't they convicted of rape in the third degree and that refers to a situation where the the victim makes it clear that she's not consenting and the perpetrator goes ahead without her consent it's a it's a lower level of physical force that's required that's what the jury felt was supported by

"Have you seen has been rerouted from the notorious rikers island jail to a hospital. Just hours after the disgraced movie. Mogul was found guilty to sex crimes. He is facing as many as twenty nine years in prison. Erica Hill is out front. Harvey Weinstein wants one of the most powerful men in Hollywood now. A convicted rapist. Weinstein with his manipulation is resources. His attorneys publicists and his spies did everything. He could to silence survivors but they refuse to be silent. They spoke from their hearts and they were heard. At least one hundred women have now publicly accused Weinstein of actions ranging from unwanted sexual advances to rape he has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Six of those women testified at his New York trial over the past month on Monday. A Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty on two counts committing a criminal sex act and third degree rape charges based on testimony from Miriam Haley and Jessica Man Hayley told the Cord Weinstein forced her into a sex act in two thousand six while man testified. He raped her in twenty thirteen during an abusive relationship. This 67-year-old was acquitted.

Hell you did a public service to girls and women everywhere. Thank you gratitude to the brave women who testified to the jury for seeing through the dirty tactics of the Defense Roseanne Arquett. Our cat publicly accused. Weinstein of sexual misconduct in a separate story for the New Yorker written by Ronan Farrow in response to the verdict fair. Lauded the many women who came forward at quote great personal cost and risk. Please keep those women in your thoughts. Today he wrote Weinstein's attorneys who planned to appeal also tells CNN. They don't think he could get a fair trial in part because of the intense media coverage they also believe the. Da wanted to make an example of him. District Attorney's Office wanted to shame Mr Weinstein and they wanted to get him on all counts. I think clearly throughout the course of this trial through cross examinations or the evidence we put forward. There was a reasonable doubt a grave reasonable doubt as to whether or not these crimes were proven. We're also learning a little bit more about why he was taken to Bellevue. Rerouted there Aaron. We're learning from his attorney. He was feeling chest. Pains having heart palpitations and high blood pressure. We can also tell you C. N.

Jury Begins Deliberating in Harvey Weinstein's Criminal Trial
"Let's move on to the Harvey Weinstein case the jury will begin deliberations today they will be deciding whether or not to convict mind staying on five felony charges including rape criminal sexual assault and predatory sexual assault which carry a maximum sentence of life in prison once things the defense attorney in that case done or tuner has been making the rounds in the media lately yesterday she published an op ed in Newsweek title jurors in my client Harvey Weinstein's case must look past the headlines which maybe is a bit ironic of she's addressing in a headline news story but remind us of the basics although more than ninety women have accused Cosby was staying of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct all the way up to rape prosecutors in this case are relying solely on accusations from two accusers Merion Haley and Jessica man why only two right mind us if there were so many accusation right okay so EDS it's amazing to me that we finally come to this day where we may have a verdict in the Weinstein case another deeply travel troubling case where you know no matter what we discussed prime we have to remember the between eighty seven to one hundred women who say that wine seen either harass them assaulted them or rate from a whole range of sexual misconduct which is the big umbrella term we use in this case you the first question people ask is why are there only two women complainants in this case to women who pressed charges there were more women who testified and that's for a whole host of reasons right you had to be in the jurisdiction of Cyrus Vance so that leaves a lot of women out if we're talking London Venice Los Angeles graves quit you know going to Brooklyn Cyrus Vance it can't do anything about that it has to be within the statute of limitations and some of these cases the the allegation is that one sees predation goes back decades so if you're outside the statute of limitations we can argue about statutes of limitations but it has to be not too old a case it has to be criminal in nature so just harassment even if it's brutish awful boorish behavior that's not enough so in the end they winnowed it down to three cases and then eventually one woman fell out of the case because of some messages she sent that that that compromised her her ability to go forward in the case the district attorney felt and they ended up with these two cases in New York and then for other women who testified to bolster the testimony of the two main complaining witnesses now a large part of the defense case rests on the assertion that each of the accusers at the center of this case not only had friendly communications with wind speed after the alleged sexual assaults but also continue to have consensual sex with him right afterwards at times here's a forty four second clip of his lawyer don or two now speaking on the New York Times podcast the daily I think you know these are consensual and counters we have communications at the time and I believe prove that they were consensual encounters I believe the actions of women after the fact prove that they were consensual encounters you know when you look at real time communications between two people it really lands a very interesting spotlight into what was happening between two people at the time and maybe the story being told today or in a courtroom is different and I guess at the end of the day it's going to be for the twelve people on the jury to decide based on the evidence if they can shut out everything else that they've heard and and hopefully they will make their decision based on facts and the evidence that they hear in the courtroom hi everyone sings attorney done Tino whether your times by cast the daily Jamie if what she's saying is factual and has been demonstrated in court how would those later consensual encounters inform decision on whether a rape or other sexual assault was committed in a previous encounter all right I want to be very careful as I explain this rape and sexual assault can happen in the context of a relationship I a wife can be raped or a partner can be raised and male partner can be raised in the context of a marriage and then continue that relationship a boyfriend and girlfriend relationship and continue that relationship a prostitute can be right hi there there are actually well known cases that we study in law school when we're studying the concept of rape so those are complicated cases but it's to demonstrate to the lawyers in their training that eight eight generally we're talking about a woman not always but generally a woman can say no whatever her status in the relationship what is complicated here is that we are talking about a relationship as wrenching as the testimony maybe a relationship that makes it very difficult for the prosecutor to meet the burden of proof because they have to prove that Harvey Weinstein raped or sexually assaulted these women meaning that the sexual encounters that they are talking about on the witness stand were without their consent for specific ones they're talking about and that is difficult when not only they didn't go to the police which the jury might understand blocked they then continue to communicate with one scene in an intimate fashion out one of the two complainants probably the most significant complaining here the most powerful one I heard she weeps during her testimony she described a very violent a rape by one scene but then she continued to write about wine stain in emails both to him and to others about a quote relationship with him and admitted as you just said right to having consensual sex with him after the alleged rape it's not that it can't happen the problem is that the prosecutor has an uphill battle convincing the jury that this very sophist if this is a very sophisticated thing that Jill Lucy is trying to convince the jury out of and it's just very very nuanced and you've got a jury of seven men and women don't always go there with you either sometimes female jurors only two of whom are white women they can be harder on female victims then the man who can be protective of those victims so I'm not saying he won't be convicted but this is why people are very hard on sci vans for not bringing these cases but this is why they are so rarely prosecuted because once the victim gets up there it's very difficult it's not a stranger rape or you're just yank down by somebody you don't know and raped and then we can find the guy and then we can get the DNA that's a different kind of case these are very hard cases to prove because the nuance is so terribly complicated and the defendant enjoys what we were just talking about it in the other case a presumption of innocence the burden is on the prosecution so with every piece of evidence we presume Harvey Weinstein not

Weinstein trial jury to begin deliberations
"The jury in Harvey Weinstein's rape trial in New York will begin deliberations today sixty seven year old disgraced movie mogul faces five felony counts including rape and predatory sexual assault and could spend the rest of his life behind bars if convicted of some of the charges the jury of seven men and five women who is considering the case of Jessica man and Miriam Haley who have accused one scene of rape and sexual
Harvey Weinstein trial: Defense witnesses dispute accusers' accounts
"With closing arguments and Harvey Weinstein's trial all about to start we catch up with a reporter who's been in the courtroom then. Her surprisingly modern film portrait of a lady on fire. Selene CRI wanted wanted to tell a story of women in the seventeen. Hundreds when asked the experts like a hallway women doing with the period of time. How are they handling abortion? At the time they know everything thing about the hair. They knew everything about how I should dress and behave the didn't do much about their privacy and we'll explore the sonic wonders of Ambien Church. That's today today on the frame. We'll be right back. Harvey Weinstein's defense team rested its case in State Supreme Court in in Manhattan yesterday the outcome of the trial hinges on six women who testified in court that Weinstein sexually assaulted or raped them the five felony. The charges against the producers stemmed from the allegations of only two of those women. Those charges include rape criminal sexual assault and predatory sexual assault. The last last which carries the possibility of a life sentence variety senior correspondent Elizabeth Wag. BICESTER has been following the case. She laid out the allegations of the two main accusers accusers. One of the women. Her name is Mimi Khaleej He. She is alleging that Harvey Weinstein assaulted her and that was from an an incident in two thousand six now the other woman. Her name is Jessica Man but we didn't know about her prior to trial started. She was Jane Doe and we didn't well her name or her story until she testified and she is alleging that Harvey Weinstein raped her and sexually assaulted her over the course of many in years during many different occasions. So what has been the core argument presented by the government in its choice of an questioning of witnesses including wounding several other women who described a pattern of alleged assaults committed by Harvey Weinstein or presenting a case that shows the Harvey Weinstein was not justice of sexual harassment sexual assault or rape once twice or three times. They are showing that he has a pattern of sexual title predatory assault now. Even though all of these charges stem from two women largely there have been multiple women who have comment according flip testified. Now the reason that that has been done so that the prosecutors can establish a pattern and the judge allowed women to take the stand to testify justify to help establish the pattern their card mall now witnesses and even though charges do not stem from their account they have taken the stand and told the jury what they allege Harvey Weinstein did to them and it's worth noting that what they said happened to them happened too long ago to be used directly in a case in New York against Weinstein so the defense rested yesterday they did not call Harvey Weinstein as a witness. What was the thrust of their defense strategy? Yeah so the rest of the defensive strategy was essentially to make these women appear as if they were opportunistic and as if they wanted their own benefit they wanted career advancement they wanted personal access from Harvey Weinstein. Of course Harvey Weinstein has said from from the very beginning of any allegations that all sexual encounters have been consensual. He has maintained that his defense of course has maintained that and his defense pence is trying to poke holes in these women's stories and they've done so by showing evidence of text messages of phone logs of emails that depict the women and stay in constant communication with Weinstein after they alleged. They were assaulted. We're talking with varieties. Elizabeth Wagner about the trial of Harvey Weinstein. One one of Harvey Weinstein's defense lawyer gave an interview to the New York Times as Megan twohey in which she suggested that sexual assaults are basically and I'm using in her words now that blame rests equally between the person who is being assaulted and the person committing the assault. I think women need to be very prepared prepared. For the circumstances they put themselves in and I think absolutely women should take on equal risk. That men are taking on and the responsibility responsibility should be equal as well as that been mirrored and how they have questioned witnesses at cross examination. It absolutely has that interview. That Weinstein's lead attorney Johnnie Gave certainly made waves A lot of people have said that she is a victim shaming and victim blaming while in court when she she stands up in Cross examines these women what she has said is you kept emailing him. You stay in constant communication with him. Are you really telling the ladies as in the gentlemen of the jury that the man that you call your rapist is also the man that you email to make sure that he had your new phone number in court. Though when many of these women have taken the stand they have explained to the jury. The only reason they went to a hotel is because Harvey Weinstein said. Please meet me in the hotel lobby for a business meeting. So they went under the understanding. They were meeting him for a business meeting and then they were lured off into a hotel room and brought into a situation said that they did not believe they would run into. I think it's also fair to say that rape experts have said that victims sometimes remain on hourly good terms with their assailants after the assault. It also seems that many of the women not only believe that Harvey Weinstein was interested in helping their careers but also feared what would happen to them if they spoke out about what happened. Yes so all of these women on the stand they have said that. Not only did they think that harvey could help them with their career because that's exactly what he said when they first met him. You know that he said to Alabama you know you're an actress. I think you're great for this lead role. Why don't you come in meet? Meet me at this hotel to read a script but they also said not only were they hopeful of the career advancement that Harvey might be able to give them but that they also feared fear that if they spoke out that they would be blacklisted from Hollywood he would ruin any chance of career entertainment that they would have so as the the government and the defense lawyers put on their closing arguments. And the jury's begins its deliberations is the fundamental question whether or not these encounters were consensual. Is that what it comes down to. Absolutely I mean this is a case ultimately of he said she said the the big question is was. This consensual wasn't not in. There is a lot of gray the area none of this is cut and dry in fact only one of the accusers ceased all communication with him after she alleges she was assaulted so there is gray area here because the question remains why did these women keep in contact with him and were they trying to advance their careers by complying with his requests. And that's all down to
