We can get so distracted by Well was a shooting justified or not a police shooting and incidentally, it's okay to have that conversation. Important to have that conversation. But that nothing that happened. In Philadelphia should lead to the violence in the streets of America. We're seeing right now. In Democrat run cities, nothing. Imagine what it's like to be a police officer right now in America and know that if a dangerous Person with a lethal weapon came at you. And you shot That person. That shooting could be responsible for the entire country. Being Tauron apart. Because somebody caught it on a cell phone video. That's the formula. You know, you've got a captured on a cell phone video, and, incidentally, I'm grateful for cell phone videos. I don't agree with minimizing the death of George Floyd. I never have and I never will. I was profoundly impacted by hearing people like Senator Tim Scott and Amy Cockney Barrett talking about the death of George Floyd. Of course, his life mattered. So does the police officer's life in America that is facing somebody who comes at them with a dangerous weapon. What happened in Philadelphia was no George Floyd situation and everybody knows it. Imagine what it's like to be a police left likes to talk about reimagining the police. Imagine what it's like to be a reimagining how we do policing. Really? I had a caller say it doesn't feel right that somebody should shoot somebody with a gun if they're charging them with the knife. What? It doesn't feel right that somebody would charge a police officer with a knife. Stop with the imagining. But try to put yourself in the shoes of a police officer. How about putting yourself in the shoes of a store owner? Who fought back after March riots. After the death March in April, in the death of George Floyd and people decided that they were entitled to go into your store and clear the shelves. Break the windows, break down the door and and robbed your store. Under the guise of racial justice. So you come back from all of that back in March in April in Philadelphia. You on a store.

Republicans Nominate Trump at RNC, Who Flings Baseless Attacks at Biden
"Endorsed Donald Trump and formally nominated him as president. For the next four years, President Trump kicked off his national convention. convention. Not Not with with the the optimism, optimism, not not with with the the optimistic optimistic tone tone AIDS AIDS promised. promised. But But with with bitter bitter tirade tirade against against his his rivals rivals joining joining us now on the case, CBS News Line is our very own political reporter dug sovereign Doug Tell us what's going on. Well, it was a long day for the GOP National convention. They first of all, they nominated the president and vice president again this morning, when a four hour preceding outside of primetime and then tonight 2.5 hours in prime time. And Yeah, it was sort of similar to the Democratic Convention, a mix of live and then taped, although absent the celebrities in the musical performances But yes, we were told to expect uplifting optimism and light and boy, it was dark and divisive. And at times there were people, especially the closing remarks by South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. Where they, you know, painted Ah, warmer portrait of Donald Trump in a lot of what was said tonight was fire and brimstone and warning about, you know the hellscape that America will become if the Democrats win. And the fiercest fire. No doubt came from Kimberly Guilfoyle, former first lady of San Francisco, who warned that California has become this dystopian nightmare. And that's what all of America will look like. If you elect Joe Biden and her former co worker in San Francisco Kamala Harris, they were assistant D. A s together that the state presided over by her ex husband, Gavin Newsom, is sort of a warning sign to the whole country of what will happen if you don't re elect Donald Trump. Wow. So you're getting reaction from different people, people in the business people outside the business. What's the feeling? Well, I've only spoken with, you know, with Republican delegates, who of course, loved it on And I think that their party's making a great case for Donald Trump and highlighting the flaws and Joe Biden on Twitter, though I'll tell you you know where many of my colleagues are there. There's some pretty harsh reaction to Kimberly Guilfoyle. She shouted this speech. Why? I don't know It was Recorded not live. There was no one else in the hall. Other people speaking at the same podium just before and after spoke to the Cameron calm, measured tones. But she gave this speech like she was standing on a soap box on a corner somewhere. Oh, and it was quite quite unusual to say the least. But, ah, you know, overall, I think the evening from the point of Republicans was a success in that got some attention, and they made their case to some extent for Donald Trump. Although really most of this was a case against Joe Biden against the Democrats. Maybe they're leaving it to trump himself to make the case for himself in the days ahead. Although given the chance this morning, he rambled on for about an hour off the cuff, and much of what he said was, You know the usual complaints. We get from him about voting by mail, etcetera, so there will probably be some choreographed support for him in the days ahead. But for the opening night It was mostly attacks on the Democrats, and they also did make a pretty strong push from minority voters. There was a real theme of diversity tonight Black and brown speakers. But at other times you have, for example, the white couple from ST Louis, who, you know, got arrested for pointing weapons at protesters who warned that you know, if you elect the Democrats, they're goingto come in for your suburbs, they'll abolish the suburbs. They're gonna bring low rent. Irvin. Trouble your way. So that's a warning to white voters. So time's a clash over the messages tonight from the GOP, Doug, I heard some chatter today about they're not really being a Republican platform rather Donald Trump and his ideas. Yeah, well, what they voted to do was rather than craft a platform is everyone typically doesn't these conventions. They just decided to adopt the 2016 platform and use it again. And with a sort of secondary, Ah, document that basically swears fealty to Donald Trump and whatever, Donald Trump says, and they trust Donald Trump. And that's their platform s O. They basically re upped on the old platform, which, if you look at it says things like You know the president president the last eight years the country's been going in the wrong direction will that would include four years of Donald Trump, so it's dated and it criticizes some of what what they are. Tryingto defend. Doesn't mention Corona virus and the other things that have gone on in the last years where this year, so it's an odd move their defensive It was that because of Corona virus, they couldn't get together and put together a platform. But the Democrats bands to do that virtually Don't think that holds much water. But there's no doubt that this party, the party of Lincoln is now holy the party of Trump. And basically, whatever Donald Trump says, is what what they believe. All right.

Trump signs order on police reform
"We begin the program by tackling the police reform that has paid to take in both the form of an executive order promulgated by president trump on Tuesday as well as take a legislative form as introduced by Tim Scott the senator Tim Scott and Republican senators today we'll get to the Scott legislation it's not dissimilar sort of flies in formation with the executive order presented by president trump yesterday of some of the specifics are Jermaine remember there's a limit to what the president can do really a limit TV and what Congress can do here as policing is larger local matter so what you really have are all sorts of suggested best practices tied to federal funding as a way to incentivize police accountability and it was president trump's job to sort of lay out a statement of principle when it comes to law and order when it comes to policing and he did that in his address yesterday I thought he struck the balance between policing and police accountability quite nicely actually we have to find common ground but I strongly oppose the radical and dangerous efforts to defend dismantling dissolve our police departments especially now when we've achieved the lowest recorded crime rates in recent history Americans know the truth without police there is chaos without law there is anarchy and without safety there is catastrophe we need leaders at every level of government of the moral clarity to state these obvious facts Americans believe we must support the brave men and women in blue will police our streets and keep us safe Americans also believe we must improve accountability increase transparency and invest more resources in police training recruiting and community engagement reducing crime in raising standards are not opposite goals they are not mutually exclusive they work together they all work together and so in contained in the E. L. the executive order you've got a certification and credentialing section looking for police departments to use independent credentialing bodies to make assessments on law enforcement practices identify internal deficiencies correct those deficiencies and make the department of justice is discretionary grant funding contingent on police departments doing so that's a good example that of the form that most of these elements of the executive order takes exist I engage with the independent credentialing bodies the AG's office shall depart of justice shall also in terms of information sharing and again this is a smart thing this isn't a good thing a fair thing create a database to coordinate the sharing of information between and among federal state local tribal and territorial law enforcement agencies concerning instances of excessive use of force related to law enforcement matters also a a mechanism to track as permissible terminations are D. certifications of law enforcement officers criminal convictions of law enforcement officers for professional misconduct for on duty conduct really civil judgments against law enforcement officers you know collect this in a central location that law enforcement agencies at every level can access so that for example a a cop who is said terminated decertified as a civil judgment much less a criminal conviction in one jurisdiction can't just pick up and move and go to another jurisdiction get hired there some institutional knowledge there all the stuff that makes sense also with respect to mental health and it lists the health and Human Services secretary and department opted to identify objects to train law enforcement officers with respect to encounters with individuals suffering from impaired mental health homelessness addiction and also increase the capacity of social workers working directly with law enforcement agencies so that the idea of of that interplay that's already I'm going to strengthen those bonds and that that that collaboration again anti that to grant funding from HHS so that's sort of as I said the form for the function of the executive order and so Tim Scott stood with his fellow Republican senators many of them including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell this morning to unveil their legislative proposal which McConnell said will be taken up by a probably the week after next Hey there some judicial matters the Senate has to deal with McConnell wants to deal with and then that's next on the

"The problems that we see today they pale in comparison to the Jim Crow. Sal they pale in comparison the nineteen sixties in the nineteen seventies. They could pale in comparison to the concept of Davis. Bacon Act that was designed to get fewer minorities forties winning federal contracts. Still lost needs to go away but there was a time when the institutions of our nation right reflected the systemic nature of racism that does not exist today as it did then and sometimes we don't spend time seeing both sides you have to be on one side or the other side is all good or all bad. And that's just not the case in America. Okay and I want to go back to the conversation with the president. I wrote in my book Mr Trump's wild ride then on questions of race the president is borderline fatalistic. Stick about resolving them and he really does believe that the essence of the issue from a solutions perspective and the presidency is not about rhetoric. And it's not about getting people to get to a different place to feeling if I can get you a job that will solve half or more of this problem. I really fundamentally believes that his is is is essential orientation. He's not racist or pro or he just thinks I can only do so much. And he's borderline is I wrote fatalistic about resolving these these things do you think that's generally an accurate description either. The president deserves credit on improving the economic outcome of the country and specifically minority groups. I do think we all president you. All of us should be more careful on how we communicate with each other. It's one of the reasons why James Langford denies in a different Oklahoma came up with something call Solution Sundays to help. People encourage people who are of different races different backgrounds suspend some time breaking bread. Because it's hard to hate what you know. And that is a simple concept that has worked in my life since I was five years old living the on Air Force bases in Illinois and in Michigan but you know the president discount some of that. I mean you had a tough conversation. You were able to bridge the gap on those those very things. You were able to bridge a gap on a policy solution. The president jumped on. That said. Give me something else. I'm not going to change who I am. What sound like ten? He hasn't two things I would say anyone over. The age of three changing who they are over in one conversation has never happened in history of the role that one conversation while not happen did not happen neither but what we have seen is. I've seen the White House engage on issues of race in a very different way not holistically but consistently I've seen progress. We spend some time on your show talking about the the judges that came before the Senate but I found objectionable two of whom evert against. And they've they've they withdrew at least one of those individuals and what's happened since then is that they have brought me in on the early part of their process to make sure that the judicial official candidates that they're bringing forth are folks who when i read their college writings are when I see the history of their their lives. They give me a chance to weigh in early in the process as opposed to late in the process. And what does that signal to you. It signals credibility and competence that I am willing to do the hard work of saying no one necessary and or being able to understand why this candidate in that past is something that is mischaracterized. That's a huge and very important position to be in to be able to have a serious conversation with the White House about a lifetime. Appointment As you say in this conversation you have something approximating veto power or just seriously. Take me seriously but my my colleagues colleagues in the Senate On the Republican side have given me enough Enough of their support. where I know that if I am visceral against a candidate the chances ask of that candidate getting through from a racial perspective on the racial objections I could have? I would have is about zero interesting and is it enough. Do you wish the president. Soften some of this rhetoric sounded different. Yes I've I've told the president that and he had a conversation last couple of months about about his rhetorical tone and how he could tell it down and he'd probably be a little more popular and I said yes so she right and so this is a thing about president. Trump is an unbiased unfiltered critique of other people in other places so it's not simply African Americans or or the four women of color he he he was hard on John McCain. He's been hard on Adam shift. He's been hard on Nancy Pelosi. He's been hard on Mitt Romney so so the president doesn't have from my my he doesn't put it into a racial category. Gory if he if he thinks you're attacking him he attacks back. It's just what he does. This is something we should all recognize as a counterpuncher strategy edgy. And that is what he has done and we will continue. Hopefully it'll work together. Final Way to have a path forward. I've been able to have that productive path forward but the better you know the president from one on one perspective the more you understand why. I'm optimistic about the things that we can do together because he will do the small things that the public will never see and it's such a kind gesture I remember that Probably really not that long after my comments Charlottesville maybe it was a little time after that. Actually the thing about where my my mother's birthday was coming up and I was like. Yeah I called the White House until the President I would love to him to sign a card center card and they said Okay but the day of her birthday he calls me in the morning and so I would rather just call your mom as well and so this is to call seventy fifth birthday party and he calls her and toxic for like ten minutes. He didn't have to do that and I haven't been one hundred percent on his side. He did that because it was what he wanted to do. And if you just ask skin you'll find this president to be a warm person than you might feel that he is when he's on. TV having a combative situation that is being covered by the press. That's the voice of Tim. Scott our special guests. It's been a pleasure. We have one more segment. Please stay tuned for the take out..

That's from a very memorable speech. Senator Game on the Senate Floor July Thirteenth Two thousand sixteen a continuation of the conversation we had in segment three. I WANNA play with sound by Zoe. This is number nine. It's from that same speech and it's about a moment that the senator will remembers when he was entering the United States capitol. He was wearing a pin. That identifies gentrify him. As a United States senator or member of the House thin senator. Okay so zoo. That's number nine and we're GONNA continue this conversation on the other side and the officer observe looked at me a little attitude and said the pin. I know you I don't show me your. Ib Eighty. I'll tell you I was thinking to myself either. He thinks committing a crime impersonating a member of Congress or or what so I mentioned earlier. Ladies and gentlemen that Senator Scott is a historical figure. He's the only Republican Senator Senator in the Republican conference these the first African American senator elected from South Carolina since reconstruction correct. Yes and when we'll heard retires I see will at the end of the year. He will be the only Republican who is an African American and the entire House or Senate so he is a historical figure and this speech is as a memorable moment not only in his career but I would say in their history the United States Senate. What did that speech mean to you? And where do you think The capital is the country is on this Never ending question and conversation. We must have in this country about race. I think we thought what we had made more progress as a nation than we actually made. There were still pockets of challenges that we need to address and that's part of the challenge. I wanted to bring to the surface Chris through my three speeches speech was about being thankful for law enforcement because so often they are the only ones willing to go into harm's way When the challenges are high and the responses low second speech was about orienting people to the fact that Yes racism and discrimination are still still real? There's still happening today in. It's not just a folks that you might say that. They caused it on themselves. It's two United States senators simply walking into the the capital and that incident. The the cop called his supervisor and they had a goal apologized to me and try to explain it but that had been the fourth or fifth incident.

"That were presented in his response to Charlottesville he listen to me. We did not come to some kind of agreement on racial history history of race in America. But what he did which was surprising housing and frankly showed on his part was he said Tim. Please show me or help me do something that is in the best interest of the people people year here advocating on behalf of the one thing I asked for was for his support opportunity zones which was part of my investing and opportunity at The next next day on Air Force One he was positively speaking about opportunity zones and supported that one decision on his part has led to somewhere around sixty billion dollars being earmarked for over eight thousand opportunities zones throughout the country where the average poverty rate is near thirty percent set so we are having a positive impact in those very areas that have been under the microscope during his presidency so from my perspective the vet is a really positive relationship to give that kind of result for the people who are growing up today as I did when I was a kid. How does an opportunity zone own work? And can you point to any place that has already been changed by. It's a rival shorting or its very existence. So how does it work so opportunities zone.

Welcome here at the takeout politics policy pop culture and today ice cream at the special request quest our guest Republican Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina. Now if you remember last week folks we're in South Carolina talking to Governor Henry McMaster so it's two Republican South Carolina the same week. That's never happened before. We're kind of heavy radio South Carolina. So we'll have to re jigger that next week with other guests and I'm sure we will but for now it's more South Carolina Republican conversation with Tim Scott and he specifically requested a meal built around. Not It'll be ice cream for me. It'll be sorbet for. Are you senator because lactose intolerant. There you go so well why you decided to bring them you. I was thinking to myself and so what ice cream shopper oppor. We have where to place called Ice Cream Jubilee on the waterfront here in Washington DC in the shadow of nationals park. That would be the pace ballpark played by the current reigning world series champion Washington nationals. Now in this audience you know padres fan long suffering but when you live in a city and they win the world series hard not to get caught up in that. So that's where we are. That's what we're doing senator Scott great heavy with like it's going to be here with you so let's get right to. This is a heavy Newsweek. I don't need to tell you that. Let's start right from the top. There were elections yesterday in Kentucky Doc. In Virginia Mississippi. There is a sense that the president took one on the Fan in Kentucky when Matt Bevin the incumbent governor the Republican lost and that Republicans generally and we took it on the Chin genuine that state legislature flipped your reaction to what you saw yesterday. How big a warning sign? Is it for your party in the president. Going into twenty twenty. Well I think it was predictable. The outcome in Virginia it was pretty clear the direction of the Commonwealth of Virginia and in Kentucky the entire Republican combat. One except for the for the governor so the fact that the matter is that was on a surprise. Either Governor Bevin was polling fairly negatively before trump came came in his numbers increased pretty substantially because the president's trump's presidents presidents but it was simply not bring them over the line so no one was surprised with Bevin lost lost. Really no I mean I was in the state working for started a C.. Four that is bringing more diversity to the party so I was in the state working for Daniel Cameron Cameron and he won. He won new the first African American Attorney General in the state of Kentucky's history but talking to the folks at his avent's it was clear to me that the Republicans were dispassionate about Bevan the president came into racist numbers within Republicans at wirt. uh-huh simply was not enough to take them over the finish line and that was not a surprise from most analysts perspective on the ground in Kentucky and from your perspective then it's not Donald Trump problem. It's a Matt Bevin problem. Well there's it's clear clear clear indication as every other Republican on the ballot. One the governor or did not so I I don't know all of the inner workings and the challenges Mr Bevan had but it was clear that the Republicans in the state had issues as well. I mean his numbers were low from a former approval. Perspective is numbers. Were really low for reigning governor in southern state border state So in both States Kentucky and Virginia you could say reasonably that there was a suburban leakage at the top of the ticket or the legislative races in for Matt. Bevin you say it I would probably disagree with. The facts are very simple Virginia in the suburbs of the Commonwealth as a whole has been trending trending lapped for years. It's been it's been a long time since we had a Republican governor in in the state we've had one in the last twenty years in the Commonwealth Jim Gilmore. Yeah so it's been a while. Yes but Republicans had controlled state legislature. One unload right flip that way to the bottom line is simple. Though that a trend line will not be a single vote the holding onto a state legislature broadened brought out of. Let me finish up. Yeah because his support being able to understand. The dynamics of the race is incredibly important to understanding twenty twenty. I think you can whitewash the results in Virginia and Kentucky and say that there's this nutrient away from the President and away from the Republican Party. That would be inconsistent with reality God but certainly early consistent with the current trajectory that it started years earlier and Mr Bevan was just not a good candidate for the state of Kentucky. This time around in general do you think Republicans going into twenty twenty have any concern about leakage and other suburbs or the suburb. Vote being if not trending away at least up for grabs. Is that a concern of yours. Should it be for the party. I think if you look at the results of two thousand sixteen we won in stays for Republicans had not won previously sleep before. And I think that's a well it'd be before the Hatton one recently. Yes I think that will continue. Twenty twenty I think it will be very competitive in the states is that we won beforehand. The the key however is that we can't afford to lose any of the states that we won in two thousand sixteen. That's really where the rubber meets the road. How well are we performing in the states that we brought over from the blue to the red? If we're unable to be successful in those states it's going to be a very challenging. I'm twenty two thousand cycle. The good news is my perspective. We're going to be pretty pretty pretty competitive in those states and hopefully win last week in Columbia South Carolina. Lizard's thicket a nice Diner we were at their. We talked to Henry. McMaster the governor. I asked him. Is there any doubt in your mind. Donald trump will be reelected and he said no no doubt whatsoever. Do you share that. Same confidence of the. I'm I'm very confident road down. I'm very confident that the president will be reluctant. Twenty twenty okay. Let's talk about the other story that is And has been topical for weeks weeks here in Washington. What is your general attitude about all questions related to impeachment? Are you withholding judgment because you are likely to be a juror or are you weighing in the needs a process or the substance. Well the process is important. The process has been ugly. But I start with the I start with the prospect that in America. You're still innocent. Innocent until proven guilty. When you read the transcript which I've read almost time eleven times twelfth reading right now and there is not an impeachable offense in the transcript? I have said we'll continue to say that the president is innocent of an impeachable. Offense as you read through the transcript. What about the witness testimony testimony? And if you've had a chance to read the transcripts released this week has any of the information you've seen their change or altered. In any way that original assumption I think reinforces this is how confusing and inconsistent. The testimonies have been you saw the Mr Sean. Simon Testified for ten hours even bathroom. Gordon Sunland yes. When he finished his testimony he came back to revise his ten hour? A testimony was something that he remembered that to me is very confusing and once again it pours into the same bucket. This since that there is something inconsistent about the entire process and frankly has testimony. If you remember in the ten hours he had to be reminded of something just to me. There's something in the water that ain't clean. I'm not sure what it is. Okay well let me ask you this. Some have looked at that and said well. He saw the transcripts the script of others saw what they testified and that clarified his memory. Which sometimes happens in a process like this? You you see things that other people say to you know you're under oath you don't WanNa make a mistake and you wanNA correct the record. Is it possible. He just corrected the record and and in so doing in the minds of some reinforced. The idea that there was was this if not quid pro quo something going. On to signal the Ukrainians there had to be something they had to do. In order to get the military it approved by Congress. I would suggest that that the ambassador having to read someone else's testimony to inform his own testimony should call into question the entire testimony from my perspective number one number two was just that we're pretending like he must have lived in a silo where he had no access to any news whatsoever. Because don't we've been you can read in. Washington press is about the impeachment process flow for him to have the for him the need someone else to help him. Remember anything within that trunch. It's hard for me to to understand how that is possible understood. That's the voice of Tim. Scott Republican senator from South Carolina. He is a historic figure in the United States. Senate Ladies and gentlemen we're going to get to that aspect of his career in politics particularly the United States Senate and a couple of segments. We're GONNA talk a little bit more about impeachment each mint ice cream jubilee. The Washington DC. I major Garrett Star are wonderful waitress will be here and I've got a three scoop Sunday coming my way very excited about that becker segment to injustice from CBS News. which this is the takeout with Major Garrett? I don't care what any bureaucrat. That says. If the president that Ukraine's this and he keeps saying no. I did not feel that I had to do anything to get the aid. I do you have a good pro quo when the the person who is the subject of the pro said it didn't happen. I've written the whole process off. I'm written him off. I think this is is a bunch of. Es That's the voice of Lindsey. Graham Republican senator from South Carolina and a colleague. I assume good friend of our guest. Tim Scott Republican senator from South Carolina. So the less than that Lindsey Graham said I think this is a bunch of bs about the process impeachment inquiry itself. I've written him off. That is a reference to Adam Schiff the intelligence committee chairman on the House side. Who is supervising this inquiry and I don't care what a bureaucrat says. That is about one of the witnesses whose transcript was released this week. And there are those who read that transcript say reinforces the idea that there was a quid pro quo. You heard all the things that Lindsey Graham said agree with all of them well processes and you've written off Adam Schiff I. I think I'm not here to explain anybody else's position on anything. I will tell you that from my perspective as I said at the beginning that the president when I read the transcript is very clear that there was nothing impeachable within the transcript number one number two. I would say if you watch the house process behind closed doors and think that that somehow somehow gives you confidence in the process. I don't know how that is possible. If you think about the things that are being leaked from the testimonies. It paints a picture for the public public in hopes to influence the opinion of the public without providing all the information so pretending to have some confidence in a process that that is behind closed doors. Were all we get is elite information until recently that does not to me encourage or reinforce confidence in the process. Uh do you anticipate having more confidence. Once these witnesses appear publicly and can be cross examined in public in full view of television cameras. And everybody else. I think the American people people have more confidence in a process that is public and the good news is the process will if it finishes an in house with an affirmative vote to impeach speech to President did it comes over to the Senate and we'll have a chance to actually ask all the same folks questions and perhaps even more people bring them in to ask them questions. Because if the premise of the premise of this entire process starts with a whistle blower Adam Schiff meeting before the whistle blower brings forth any information files and the filing of the whistleblowers. Complaint is not his complaint. Based on first-hand information it seems like that entire process is questionable but more importantly than that from my perspective is that when you read the transcript you come to one conclusion. The President President is innocent of any impeachable deeds number one number two. I talked to folks who have had some insight into what's happening in the house. I think we're going to find the rest of the story to be quite illuminating for the people of our country. Please go on. What do you mean by that? What was that the waiting to see what what have what do you mean illuminating eliminating? In what sense the partial information is being leaked is in fact to create a prototype or a profile of what the mayor a narrative of what the Democrats want the public to believe. When the rest of the information comes out I think it will be? It'll be more murky at best if my exploded might actually reverse the opinion of a lot of folks. You're anticipating that there is reason to believe that there is more to the story than the Democrats have leaked. They've leaked in. They've leaked on purpose information to help. The American people draw a specific conclusion and the rest of the information comes out. I believe it will change that conclusion. I promise Star would be approaching the table here to kind of slightly wobbly table. But I'm good with that as long as ice creams heading our way Sir please come on. Don't be.
