Hey, Michaela Bennati got sentence yesterday in that attempt to blackmail shakedown. Uh, Nike. Uh, you remember Joe Bartlett? If you go back, you know, I guess a couple years you got this idiot Brian Stelter and others talking about how Brian Stelter said a vanity is presidential material that he should be president. One day? Yes. Mine? Yes. Uh, there's a whole montage of the CNN and MSNBC anchors just drooling over of a nutty gushing, urging him to run for president Stelter, saying he's definitely presidential Michaela Vanity. So he was, uh, remember the case he was threatening Nike, he was threatening to Put out some bad stories about them If they didn't give him a couple million bucks just to show you what a brilliant lawyer he is. He's doing this on the phone, and they're recording the conversation. Definitely presidential material. I mean, he's brilliant genius. They record the whole conversation. You better give me the money or else I'm going to plant these bad stories about tonight. Demand two million. Well, they okay? You got it? Yeah, definitely. And they hang up and just walk right over the U S Attorney's office. Here's Here's the recording. Take a Listen and that's it. Uh, The good news for him is the pandemic delayed the sentencing for about a year, But he got sentenced yesterday. Only 2.5 years he could have gotten four or five years. What, Uh, They argued that, uh, you know, he's this is just one case. He's got, like, four other cases where he's gonna be in jail. So this could be getting a lot of jail time for other things, and he had spent time in the Manhattan detention center. Where Jeffrey Epstein was, which is a hell hole. So the judge counted some of that, but that's it for a vanity. Remember how much television he was doing when he was going after Trump when he was stormy Daniels lawyer there was one day I think, he said he did 48 TV hits in one day 48. It was about literally 15 or 20. Some one day and he was buying like 20 neckties. In a storehouse. What do you need? I said you have no idea how much television I do. I'm doing like 2025 shows every day. I've got to keep having more ties to change it. This was his big concern. So, uh, The coverage of him was unbelievably she could praising him praising yesterday get sentenced to 2.5 years in jail. Nobody mentions it. Nobody. It's amazing in that. Yeah, not a story. In the New York Post, but it didn't make the evening news didn't make anything. Didn't they know coverage of this? Uh, the crime of the century apparently was Alan Wiesel Berg's Carly's, because that was 24 7 coverage on CNN. An MSNBC the oven 82 a half years the conviction, not to mention nothing. So we'll see. Uh hey. And the other thing is this hunter Biden Scheme scam. This hunter Biden is really one thing Rudy Giuliani was right about he was appointed bag man of the family. The Biden family. It's just total sleazy swamp corruption. It's in the laptop and all the documentation and there's more. That hasn't been revealed yet. That's coming out. So apparently from the beginning And listen. A lot of politicians are like this Republican Democrat. It happens a lot, but Biden was one of the worst at it. Uh, as he you know, you said, Well, I guess in office 47 years why do you stay in office on because he was making of fortune? One reason you leave office is to go into the private sector. You can become a millionaire and make money. Bite and find a way to do it without leaving. So, uh, he gave his brother a billion dollar contract to build houses in Iraq. Even though the brother never built a house ever. He's got another brother got billion dollar contracts and Hunter was sent out into the world to collect money from everybody. Hunter got paid millions and millions and millions and millions and millions and some of these are pretty sleazy things that you're sleazy Ukrainian oil company and, uh, When he went over to China to make that deal, he was dealing with some of the worst most dangerous characters and the Chinese Communist Party. So that's who Hunter had to deal with all his life and rake in all this money and millions and millions and millions came flowing in and it says right in the laptop, Hunter says, in his own words in writing in the emails that he sent That a lot of this was to pay the family bills. Uh, of course, a lot Hunter kept. But a big chunk of it went to pay all of Joe Biden's bills by his house. Do everything you know, and people would look back now and say. Biden was in Congress. He was getting a congressman salary. How did he afford to buy the DuPont Mansion and Delaware and lived there for years? Well, this is how through this kind of stuff because before all this Ukrainian energy hunter was on the board of Amtrak, he was on the board of MasterCard. A lot of money was flowing his way and he says, right in the emails. That he was giving big chunks of it to Joe Biden and paying all the family's bills for years. So that's how they raked in money. Hunter was the bag man I mentioned yesterday. Louie free. Former FBI director when he was FBI director was quite an honorable guy. But then once he got out, it was total sleaze and slime and you see the emails from Louie Free now a private citizen with his own company, looking for business looking for jobs writing to Hunter saying, Here's 100,000 for your Little foundation there. Uh And then there's a couple emails trying to figure out what's the best way for him to give the money to avoid any regulatory Tory problems, so he sets up a foundation to give it to his foundation. And then he says, great meeting with Dad last night. By the way, I can send you another 100,000. I'd like Dad's cell phone number in private email if I could get it. And then Louis Freeh's says, I have some What could be very rewarding opportunities for us to discuss..

I don't even know do you have to, But does anybody know the answer to that stuff? Uh, somebody's going to find out why Silberg has pleaded not guilty of the charges against him. Let's hope Mr Weisberg's attorneys do. I'm sorry in San Francisco I'm at Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Brian. Alright, Ed. Yeah, I share. I share your amusement at those comments, you know, in public in front of a mic like that to craft Let's get to Martin Hannah Key Asia investment director at ST James's Place Wealth Management. And Martin joins us here live on the radio. So I mentioned to the audience. Martin that your your conviction calls are to be careful. Give me your 42nd elevator pitch. Why I should buckle up. Why should buckle up? Well, Basically, I think the main reason is that some of the girls make a central banks appear to have been stuck between the risk of rising inflationary pressures that you know still Emerging, you know, across the globe as we as we speak, and on the other hand, you have got this very, very high debt and deficit issue. Mean, that's you know, Starting with the United States being the largest economy, at least in nominal terms, you have point to point or six trillion Uh um of a budget deficit in the first eight months of this year, the CBO project is going to be another three trillion, probably for the whole year, similar to last 3.1. That's about 15% budget deficit. And I think it's just something that central bankers are very wary and and just trying to hide and not talk about that. It's not just all about economic recovery and inflation figures, but they simply don't have much room to increase interest rates, substantial degree or rescue debt crisis, and that could lead to a lot of uncertainty and volatility and market the heck. Martin was also looking at the OPEC negotiations breaking down and that threatens the overall global economic recovery. What kind of impact does this spat have too broad assets? Well in the short term. It's hard to say what exactly going to come out of this now The immediate impact was actually the oil prices roll flat. Yes, you will know it. That production increase. Suspend for all of us might not be coming through now. Longer term, You know, I don't have any particular Inside on the in integrated of the latest negotiation and the immediate outcomes there the next step, But I would just caution again. Ultimately, the pressure that we've seen globally on inflation and that's partly the deficit driven what I just explained. That's partly also driven by China, which is no longer able to export deflation. Across the birth and having the slowest population goes 1953 years. You see the produce surprised it and press if they're coming through very strongly some companies trying to absorb it for now, which is why you see this message. And you know the largest difference ever between the PP. And it's C P in China, But.

So in order to save face, this is what it's all about Side Vance trying to save fish that come up with a lane charge against Allen Wiesel Berg. In order to justify what they had done. So you know? Is it any wonder Jennifer Americans spies people like Cy Vance in power? They're corrupt. They're abusive. Dance is a prime example. And this is the problem with having politicians serving in law enforcement and prosecutorial positions. They politicize. And weaponize their power. It's disgraceful. Uh, you know, good luck presenting the case in front of a jury, even a jury that probably despises Donald Trump. And how many other people and we're in our last moment here, Greg, But how many other people and I look at Hunter Biden that have not even seen one charge for things that maybe might constitute much more crimes than we're even talking about What? Donald Trump here. That's a double standard and everybody pain remote attention knows it. You know the info investigation and Hunter Biden, who in my judgment is committed real crimes, crimes of corruption and influence peddling, he won't be touched because you know, as he said in an interview after the election, he was relieved his father got elected because.

"I've been speaking with Rebecca Ball House investigative reporter for The Wall Street Journal about the recent criminal charges unveiled against the Trump Organization. So you just said that that we don't see a shift in his public stance. Mr Wiesel Berg's Do you think that others within the Trump organization and perhaps former president Trump himself are feeling nervous, though at this moment, so we know that that the investigation is still very much ongoing. We know that there's still seeking to build a case against Trump, and we know that in addition to trying to gain why Starbucks cooperation, they're also trying to persuade others of the Trump Organization to cooperate. Including the chief operating officer, whose name is Matthew Pallomari. You reported a couple weeks ago that that calamari has also been under scrutiny by prosecutors for his fringe benefits that they say he received. He was mentioned, though not by name and the indictment yesterday as an employee who received, you know an apartment and a car lease from the company. Uh um and Didn't necessarily pay taxes on it, so we know that they are still very much working on trying to get people to cooperate with them. It's just not clear yet. I think whether that's going to happen, So does former President Trump have a point that this seems to be politically motivated? On the one hand, I think he had said that about every investigation that he's based essence running for president. But on the other hand, I think what we would we have heard from legal experts and former prosecutors is that it's somewhat unusual to bring a case that focuses solely on fringe benefits. It's often a part of a larger chased, but it's a little bit rare to it to bring in case that's just on On that subject. On the other hand, we did see some legal experts say yesterday that they felt like the charges for actually more sweeping than they expected and that they portrayed a slightly more brazen scheme to avoid taxes. Then people might have anticipated. What does this mean for the business of Donald Trump and the Trump organization so practically. If the company's convicted, they could face fines. They could face other penalties. But, you know, it doesn't mean necessarily that anyone goes to prison if they if the company itself is convicted. Um, but more broadly, an indictment against the company can really make it difficult for a for the company to do business and this is coming at a time when the company has been somewhat restricted in what it's been able to do While Trump was in the White House, and this was very much a time I think when they were looking to expand and possibly looking to, it's been more abroad in particular. And, um, you know if they're facing now, these charges if there's going to, you know if they're going to be in the news every day about this case for the next several months, I think that that's certainly complicates that effort. And there's also this separate question. I think of you know their their dealings with banks to banks trying call in loans, outstanding loans early, so I think that there's A number of issues that the company needs to consider right now. Is there a possibility that former President Trump himself is going to face charges? I think that really remains to be seen it certainly he was not mentioned by name in the indictment yesterday. Um we know that prosecutors are very much looking to build a case against him. And we, you know, we're certainly told that there wasn't much that happened at his company that he didn't know about in terms of whether he was aware of the conduct that was described in the indictment on Thursday, but I'm still very much an open question. Whether they're going to charge him help me us to understand a little bit about the timeline here. I presume that we're not expecting these indictments to stop with Wisenberg that there may be some other folks sort of. Are we talking about across the summer coming very soon. What do you Hearing. We don't currently I think have an expectation of when another round of indictments might come. And I think you know it definitely hinges on whether why Spielberg or others decided to cooperate. So we know that they're continuing to investigate, for example, whether Trump in the company where Manipulating the value of the company's real estate to get loans and other tax benefits. Um, you know they're continuing to look at these fringe benefits so there certainly could be more, but I don't think we have any sense of The timeline on when more would come just yet. Thank you so much to Rebecca Ball house, An investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me.

"So data some detail that she had her hands on from the time that she was married to the Trump CFO. His son. So will he flip to save his own butt and potentially stay out of jail? Well, this guy flip He knows everything. Folks. This guy knows where every body is buried. He knows Everything. Whether it's something that could be used against trump or weather and listen, I'm giving you both sides here. It's important or whether he has information that could be a defense and exonerate Trump. He knows everything. He knows the whole spectrum of what's happened. For what? Five decades. Seventies eighties nineties. The zeros. The tens Now into the twenties, so going on six decades He knows where everything Situated and he's 73 years old. This guy Alan Wise work 73 years of age. And they're poking into his own taxes. They're poking into his personal life. And well. Some are saying that if Wiesel Berg doesn't want to spend his final days in prison That he could very well flip. Despite the decades and decades and decades of loyalty. Now, if Wiesel Berg senses that Trump We'll roll on him. Will Wiesel Berg? Will he roll first? Now nobody knows. What's ultimately going to happen here on unless you know unless you're plugged into the players, brains here. But nobody who knows Trump well. Thinks that he would hesitate even for a second to throw Wiesel Berg under the bus if it means saving his own skin. As Wiesel Berg Turn on, Trump Does Trump turn on Wiesel Berg. These are all I find this to be dramatic. I find this to be remarkably interesting. And I don't know if anyone is put it in these realistic dramatic terms, So you have a real snapshot. What's going on here? Does each turn on each other to save. But Trump say, Hey, listen, this was Wiesel break. He was doing all this. I had no idea. That's why I ever see him follow. That's why have an accountant. All this remains to be seen. Trump obviously already has his hands full with his former personal attorney that Michael Cullen. He's been singing like a bird for a couple of years now. And when the story broke last night. You had Michael Cohen Tweet. I am not surprised by this at all, and have been steadfast in saying the wheels of justice turn slowly. But nevertheless turn No one is above the law. So, um Yes. Ooh, just sent me some video. I've got some audio, which I'll play here in just a bit. We've got some video of the ex daughter in law. Of the Trump Organization, CFO's son. Or I should say the ex wife. Let me let me rephrase that. We've got video of the ex daughter in law. Of the Trump CFO's Uh, my screen up. You know what I'm trying to say. So the woman that was formerly married to the Trump CFO, son. All right there. There we go. Right, So I've got video and we can play some of that audio in just a bit. And then, of course, it's only fair that we give you President Trump's reaction, the former president last night. Without specifically referencing the news of the grand jury convening. Trump released this statement that said, this is a continuation off the greatest witch hunt in American history. It began the day I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, and it's never stopped now. Again. You gotta parts that because yes, Trump has been the subject. Off a witch hunt. But what Trump likes to do is he likes to take everything and put it under the umbrella off complete and total witch hunt. And that's just not the case. Now. The Mueller investigation, for instance. The Mueller investigation looking into Russian collusion. Yeah, I've always maintained That was a witch hunt. They were looking collusion, collusion, collusion. Russia, Russia, Russia Now there was no collusion that happened with Russia. I maintain that from the very beginning. And, Yeah, I think there were elements of a witch hunt in trying to prove something that didn't exist that Trump had colluded with the Russians. The Russians interfere with the election to the benefit of Trump. Absolutely no doubt about it. But Trump never colluded with Russians. Yes, that I think falls under the umbrella of a witch hunt. But to say that everything any investigation anything perceived. His negative is all the sudden completely under a umbrella of a total complete witch hunt. That's just not accurate. And that's really that's the reflex. That's the Trump natural defense mechanism that anything that is proffered. That's negative is part of the witch hunt. And I don't believe that there are things that Trump did wrong. If things happened in the trump organization that were afoul of the law. Well, that's gonna come out. Grand Juries unit decide and if it's an indictment if Trump is charged if the Trump organization is charged if the CFO Alan Wisenberg, if he's short, all this will be seen in court. All of this will be decided. In a court of law. By a jury, and that's the way our system operates here. But I just think everyone needs to be cautious that Trump is capable of doing things. Improperly not saying that he did, but assume that everything that Trump is accused of is all part of a witch hunt, and he's automatically innocent of everything. That's strange. Credibility the end, you know that Witch hunt in certain areas, of course, which hunting every area. I'd say hardly..

"Your associates your business and financial relationships anything that could be a basis for foreign leverage over you either he disclosed in incorrectly incompletely or there were concerning information on there and that led to this cascade of events. Our guests have agreed to stick with us. We're just gonna take a break. We'll come back and continue our conversation after this and coming up after Michael Cohen's week on the hill. There's one longtime Trump associated whose name keeps coming up and congress would like to speak to him next and later President Trump once again, choosing to take the word of an authoritarian leader this time, it's a matter involving the death of a young American the eleventh hour as we say just getting started on a Thursday night. Alan Weisselberg of New York will apparently be called to testify before the house Intel, and perhaps oversight committee's. Now. You may wonder what put the name Alan Weisselberg in their heads. All of a sudden. In the office with me was in Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump organization, and I was at the time with Alan Weisselberg, the bottom signature, I believe is Alan Weisselberg 's Allen Weisselberg, Alan Weisselberg. Alan Weisselberg, that's signed by Alan Weisselberg, always Alan Weiss over on the check their other people that we should be meeting with so Alan Weisselberg his name. In fact, might have come up just a few times yesterday. Alan weisselberg. This man is the longtime chief financial officer of the Trump organization dating back generations really to win. Donald Trump's father ran the place today committee, chairman Elijah Cummings was asked about the committee's next moves. You said you're going to be following up with some people are there. Some people are there people Wiesel Berg that you he sort of seen. We'll go through figure out who we wanted to talk to. And we'll bring them in do you love people in the Trump family vodka Trump? Donald Trump junior followed the transship well in Watergate, it was follow the money now tonight, we're following the transcript and still with us to do that. Jeremy bash Josh Gerstein, and Jessica Roth Jessica here in New York. If you follow the transcript how much more legal peril are people like Ellen Weisselberg and the Trump children in then before Cohen started testifying. Well, I don't think that they're in any more peril. As a consequence of Cohen testifying or just mind to be called to testify. Yes. And I assume that the prosecutors in the southern district of New York are familiar already with everything that was said yesterday by Michael Cohen. He's testified yesterday he's been in. I think he said constant contact with the southern district. Prosecutors so I'm assuming they know everything that we heard yesterday publicly and much much more. So I think the big question is what do they know from Allen Weisselberg already? It's been reported that he has some limited form of immunity. So maybe they have not fully debriefed him. That's what that would suggest that he's not fully cooperating it, but he was given limited immunity, perhaps testify in the grand jury about the hush money payments. But there's clearly much more information that he has to offer. And if I were in this other district. Now, I would actually be quite concerned about Allen Weisselberg being called as a witness especially in an open session before congress before I had the chance to fully debrief him. Josh we keep seeing the worry for good reason has been about Russia and Muller. But whether they are buckets or pails, they just keep opening up all over the horizon, they do, and I do think that some of the more damaging and potentially troublesome testimony from Cohen during his lengthy appearance on Capitol Hill yesterday was more of the garden variety type stuff, you know, even the campaign finance violations that we've all heard alleged Cohen has admitted to involving stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, obviously, very titillating stories and significant if the law was broken, but actually very hard cases to prosecute in federal court requires specific intent not just at the lobby broken. But you're going to need memos or some kind of. -cation that Trump knew that it was illegal, despite the fact that he had lawyers who were participating in this process..

Here knowledge to the president whoever provide inflated assets to an insurance company. Yes. Who else knows it? Allen Weisselberg, Ron Liebman, and Matthew calamari Alexandria, Cossio Cortez questioning Michael Cohen in front of the house oversight and reform committee yesterday go and testified that Trump had committed insurance fraud, and that those three Trump organization officials would know more. So who are Alan Wiesel Berg, Ron Lieberman and Matthew calamari? And are they key to understanding? Trump's murky finances here to tell us more as Andrea Bernstein. She's WNYC senior, politics and policy editor and co host of the podcast Trump Inc. Andrea, hey, always get you always great to Abby. Okay. Let's begin with Allen Wiesel Berg, I think his name came up some what thirty five times during the hearing yesterday. He's the CFO at the Trump organization, and what is his role. Why would he be of interest to investigators so Allen Wessel? Berg is a central central figure in the Trump investigations. And his name is already come up. It came up in connection. With the hush money payments to stormy Daniels and puke Karen McDougal because he was the figure inside the Trump organization that set up this sort of Byzantine financial arrangement by which metal Cohen would pay them off via a home equity loan, and then they would pay him back via a retainer which never existed. So he is an important person. He's also come up in regards to a separate investigation into the Trump foundation and into weather. The attorney hope New York believes Trump Dacian, the Trump organization and the campaign inappropriately mingled funds and decision making and Weisselberg name has shown up in many of those documents as well. He's been with the Trump family since the days of Fred Trump, father, forty years. Wow. So he is a a central central figure. And then the other thing about him is that you remember that press conference. When before he was President Trump said I'm turning over control. Role of my company to my son's, right? His lawyer said, okay. Three people are going to be running it day to day, Donald Trump junior. Eric Trump Weiner, who they are the other person was Alan Weisselberg. So he is central. So he knows everything about the finances. Presumably presumably knows everything about the finances. Now, isn't he being wasn't? He granted immunity by federal prosecutors in the southern district of New York, right? So what we understand is that he was giving him unity to discuss this specific scheme regarding the illegal campaign finance payments to these women who alleged that they'd had fares with Donald Trump. And in fact, his name showed up on one of the documents that Michael Cohen presented yesterday where he was showing the series of payments that had been made back to him to cover his expenses. If you will have expense, obviously being hush money payment. One of those checks was signed by Donald Trump junior and Alan Weisselberg. So he obviously is integral to that piece of this scheme. What about what Representative Akhazia Cortez was talking about the alleged insurance fraud. This is one of the very intriguing things that came up in yesterday's hearing. Because Michael Cohen didn't say anything about insurance fraud in his opening statement. He presented some documents that hinted at the possibility that Donald Trump might have committed Bank fraud or making false statements to a bag, which is of course, one of the reasons that Michael Cohen himself is going to prison because he did that in his own transactions. But it's at the end of the day of hearings approximately five and a half hours in and she says, do, you know, anything about attempts to defraud insurance companies, and who could back it up, and he lists these three names, and we don't know why. Specifically or what they know? But it's sort of came out of the blue and suggests something that they might be further looking into at the house oversight committee. So even though he was granted immunity, he can still be hauled before house investigators for more questioning, right and the other. That is certainly an arrangement that the house has made in the past that people who have unity will speak to them. Now. One of the other things that came out yesterday was at Michael Cohen said that the US attorney in the southern district of New York is still actively investigating both his Michael Cohen's most recent communications with Donald Trump, which took place last summer and other possible illegal acts. So it does seem like the house oversight committee is trying not to step on the criminal investigations. So if there's something going on with that that these discussions could jeopardize it's possible that they would put that aside until the investigation was concluded which just don't have enough information to know at this point. Okay. Let's move onto the second guy. Ron lieberman. Who is he so Ron Lieberman is somebody that is a name that has barely come up. All the reporting that we for example, have done at Trump ink on the Trump organization. He is not a high profile. Figure he doesn't seem to have a particularly public facing role. He was the kind of person that Donald Trump used to hire all the time. So he worked for the city of New York, and he handled leases for concessions for businesses that wanted to operate on city land, for example, Donald Trump's ferry point golf course. Which is in the Bronx the central park carousel, which the Trump organization operates. These were exactly the kinds of concessions that he worked on when he was at the city. And then when he went to work for Trump. He then went back into it with these city entities that he understood really well. It's so interesting is that Alexandria, ocasio Cortez? Also raised the ferry point golf course. Because this is a golf course that Trump negotiated a deal and Lieberman worked on where they got a essentially a taxpayer subsidy while still being able to keep the profit from this golf course for themselves. She raised that as a point of equity in her five minutes yesterday. Okay. Finally. Last. But definitely not least Matthew calamari. I mean as soon as he he actually uttered that maim Twitter went crazy like could this actually could this person actually exist with that name? But anyway, he has existed for a long time and at the Trump organization for decades. Right. He started out as a as a bodyguard, right? So McCollum calamari is a real person, and he first came into contact Donald Trump at the US open in the eighties where Donald Trump saw him ejecting, some people that were being disruptive and said, hey, I want to hire that guy. Michael Cohen implied in his testimony that one of the jobs of Maggie column. Mari was protecting Trump which Michael Cohen described as a very unsavory job that included threatening people, etc. Etc. Now, he also had a title at one point called director of surveillance, which is not a normal title for a real estate company in. Yes. So now his job is executive vice president, which is the same title that vodka Trump had when she worked there, and that Eric and Donald Trump junior have and that Michael Cohen had before he put the Trump organization became personal attorney to the president. So what does he do? Well, he is in charge so far as we can tell operations. I mean, one of the things we know about the Trump organization not that big on organization and not that formal and organization, and this is by the testimony of Donald Trump's adopt children. It's a mom and pop company, they say, there's there's not really an organizational chart the roles are fluid by everything that I've seen that is an absolutely accurate characterization. So what exactly their jobs are? And what exactly they're pieces of information in this whole passively criminal scheme that Michael Cohen was laying out. Well, I think unfortunately, we have to end up saying we'll see. Yeah. And maybe we'll see them testifying before some various house committee. It has so many questions. I don't suspect. This will end anytime soon. And I always great to talk to you. Thank you. And thanks much..

So what does he do? Well, he is in charge so far as we can tell operations. I mean, one of the things we know about the Trump organization not that big a on organization and not that formal and organization this is by the testimony of a down Trump's adult children.

So what exactly their jobs are? And what exactly they're pieces of information in this whole passively criminal scheme that Michael Cohen was laying out. Well, thank unfortunately, we have to end up saying, we'll see. Yeah. And maybe we'll see them testifying before some various house committee. It has so many questions. I don't suspect. This will end anytime soon. And I always great to talk to you. Thank you..
