"Him now and alex jones a couple of years ago. And maybe that seems. I don't know is that. Is that weird to say like he's even started to take up. Some of the men resumes of alex. Jones the weird laughs. The he's not just the biggies in an idiot like the. He's become increasingly weird. He did a segment this week about how to fight climate change. Democrats want to genetically engineered humans to be smaller and make them unable to process meet and he did all of that because Six years ago there was a scientist at a convention that throughout some wild hypotheticals that he didn't even agree of about like insane. Things that in theory could be considered. He doesn't believe any of that took a carlson. This week picked up those comments from six years ago. Instead that's what democrats and scientists want. And that is i think indistinguishable from alex jones doing a segment about how they're putting stuff in the water. That's gonna make the frogs gay because he read something in a thesis statement once and but he's done alex jones he's fox news it's got an audience of millions ever expanding audience. He's making millions of dollars per here and he is very much a thought leader whether it's on the military becoming effeminate as it becomes woke or the fact that white people are the most aggrieved and victimized people in our society he is unfortunately perhaps now driving more of what conservatives think on a daily basis than even donald trump at the very least until donald trump starts to do his.

"Like his biggest issue seems to be the guy hasn't read about white supremacy which i don't believe that he said he never has and maybe he doesn't need to maybe he occasionally tunes into tucker carlson. Maybe getting all he needs to know about White rage in white supremacy in america. Anyway there was a lot there. Obviously so i will throw to our panel. Take it wherever you'd like to go based on what you saw david. What did you think about that things. I always do my disclosed. That i worked with tucker carlson ten years ago. Msnbc substituted on his show back band. He was a very different person than he is. Now back then that's like across the would never think of using the pag to describe somebody who's in the us military or somebody who's in an administration. I tucker has changed. Any as changed has decided that okay he can be part of this coarsening culture that donald trump seemed to embrace and the talker can go there as well and to me. It's another regrettable step regardless of whether tucker has a strong opinion or maybe he does about general million. What generally testified you but the way the tucker carlson now courses people's language towards people like that and enables people to call people names. It's just it's so regrettable and again it's just like donald trump. And i suppose you. Donald trump pave the way for all of us to go there. But it's another sign that Our society particularly on the right has just totally lost. its way does nothing classy. There's nothing sophisticated. But what tarco tucker. Carlson has become an even though classy and sophisticated. Were things that i know. Tucker aspire to at least ten years ago so he's failed. Oh well. I don't know tucker. Carlson united non ten years ago. But i would like to think that he'd probably always the same hurt then. He just foreign bulletin now and you know when he gets up on its hope and he starts with these comments about whether they be leaders or about wife feminazi. all he's doing is doubling down on propaganda and he's not worth listening to joe blake. I don't think he was worth listening to. Then but i think we know who this man is and we know what his agenda is. And it's just a matter of hopefully divorcing him from having a position where he can actually influence large masses.

He was really satisfied with the verdict. I think he was hoping that it would come back guilty. i also heard from alicia smith who is a community organizer. So she was one of the people. I interviewed previously. Who told me that there was no way that she seriously doubted that they would come back with the guilty verdict and she said that she was happy to be proved wrong she. She's still in shock. She wants to see it in writing. That's what she said. Was there one person who stood out to you where you you just couldn't shake them. Yeah yeah there. There's one young man.

This is worthy of celebration. But this is such a small part of the system that created derek chauvin. So it got me thinking. More about this stemming change that some of these folks on the ground are still waiting for. There are also people who found themselves changed by everything. That's happened like marcia. Howard a former teacher who has thrown herself into the community that sprung up and george floyd square so she is sort of the unofficial security liaison for the for the area for the intersection. She has a military background. She was a marine and she was a high school teacher. Awesome vacation when. George floyd Was was was killed. And she leaned into that role. She started providing security for the area after became an autonomous zone and they sealed up the area so when i first met her. She was invigorated and energized by the community. That was growing around her then she saw. This responsibility is something that would replace identity. She stopped talking to me. As as a schoolteacher point she started talking to me as a community member at an activist and she is about eleven months in everyday she. She's outside patrolling. She's on. The walkie talkies every single day. Always trying to chase fires and protect the square as much as she can so this is her life now. This is her life yet. she's not teaching anymore. This this is what she does. Yeah it's it's really impressive but really what we're trying to get at is when i talked to her today. She said something really interesting. She told me that she is running out of oxygen and she only planned to swim to get there she bringing the oxygen for the swim back implying that this was it for. She was just going to give all the for energy in all of her life to this movement. And you know. I like i got to witness that whole transformation in real time. You know she she's exhausted. She's so tired so many of the people. There are so tired but she sees she still had she still burdening herself with the responsibility to protect the whole neighborhood. And there's no going back no going back for her now. You mentioned how one person you talked to like. I wanna see this in writing. I won't believe it until it's written down and it just makes makes me think about the fact that we have. I think eight weeks until sentencing. We have a while until sentencing. What do you think those two months are gonna be like in minneapolis. Well leading up to this square was pretty quiet. I hadn't seen a ton of people in the area For a long time now and they'll they'll sometimes have events and parties in meetings but it was nothing like today and so i expect more people to keep coming. I think they're going to try and use the momentum from the decision from the jury today to to try and get people refocused on other things like qualified immunity for the police to. They're working for a total justice criminal justice reform. And they're not gonna get that with one with one decision from the jury. But i am especially curious to see how the inner in the politics inside the squared. Play out one of the things that we haven't talked about yet. Which is very interesting. Is that the city is planning on reopening the square in the intersection after the trial and they had promised to reintroduce vehicle at traffic up chicago avenue to so that the stores there can get more traffic. So people don't really know what's going to happen right now are they. Because of this wind gonna feel more inclined to let it happen. Are they going to resist insisting that they didn't get justice that they need more. Nobody really knows so. I'm really interested in in chasing that story. And maybe even coming back to minneapolis and seeing where. The story goes.

"That he's guilty so let's talk about what happens next. There are three other officers. Who were with derek chauvin when he killed george floyd and they're going to be tried in august. How does this verdict affect the way that that trial will go if chauvin had gotten off if he'd Ben found not guilty on all three counts then it would have made it much easier for the other three defendants to argue that. Hey how're you hold me accountable for aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter. When you let the guy off who is actually charged with murder manslaughter. But the fact that he was convicted and convicted of all three charges makes it a more difficult situation for the other three defendants. And i will say that. I heard in the arguments especially in the closing arguments by the prosecution. They were not just calling out. Derek chauvin. They said the officers over and over. So they'll be the same ones for the most part who will be this trial in august and it seems like they already have a lot of the ammunition that they're gonna use against these. Three other officers chauvin himself is going to be sentenced in eight weeks. Is that right about eight weeks. It looks like he would be getting twelve years in prison but he could be getting up to forty while the presumptive sentence is twelve years because in minnesota when someone is convicted of multiple charges for the same offence for against the same person than they only get sentenced for the top charge for the most harsh charge so those charges aren't going to layer on top of each other. It's not like one is ten years twenty years and then you get to thirty years no and the presumptive sentence for both the top. Two charges are about twelve years. Although the prosecution has asked for the judge in this case to consider aggravating factors five different ones and so the judge will need to decide you know. How much does he take those into account because he does have some flexibility in how he sentences but he needs for reno to explain his reasons for it and they need to be based in the law. So that's gonna be the next step in this. That kind of next drama whether.

Murder charge is different from the third degree murder charge in what's required to convict someone of those is different. So it means that the jurors found some substance to convict him on all three charges. And i think because it's going to go to appeal because that's what happens in our criminal justice system. It makes it more complicated for chauvin to actually argue that. These charges are baseless or that they should be overturned and to like actually able to overturn them. One thing that caught my attention as they watched this case playout was the way the defense continually talked about whether derek chauvin was acting like a reasonable officer. At the time. George floyd was killed. His lawyer even instructed the jury not to look at the case from george floyd perspective or even from the perspective of bystanders. Who saw him killed instead. He said they should consider the perspective of a reasonable police officer and how he might act in the moment. This idea of a reasonable officer standard. It comes from supreme court case graham v connor. So ask john about it and whether he thought the chauvin case had raised the bar for what a reasonable officer could do well. Graham via qatar is brought up so much by defense attorneys who are defending law enforcement officers. Because it's been very effective in making sure that they're not convicted. It's a very high threshold. Which essentially they will argue. Says you can't use twenty twenty hindsight to judge the officer and when they tell that to jersey than jersey think being a cop is really hard and I would know what i would do if i was put in the situation. And they are more have been historically more willing to give these police officers leeway when they're on trial The question of whether anything is changing the case law itself hasn't changed but questioned is always especially in the last couple of years with all. That's happened you know it. Has something changed in the consciousness of the people that make up the jury pool that allows them to see this case law. That hasn't changed in a different way than they would have seen at say five years ago or ten years ago in its own way the prosecution was also making an argument about what a reasonable officer might do by bringing a bunch of policemen onto the stand to testify against chauvin. Prosecutors seem to be saying derek. Chauvin can't be a reasonable officer. If all these other reasonable officers think he messed up ask john. Was this an approach. That seemed to him to cut off the finger to save the hand. Sacrifice chauvin to defend policing as a whole. I mean we're sitting in minneapolis. Which last year popularized this idea of defunding the police whether that was actually what most people intended to say or not and we have done polling and within the city and within the state and the concept of defunding. The police is relatively unpopular is popular with some actress. But it's not popular in general. And i think that probably what the prosecution was trying to do some of their arguments that policing noble profession is to To try to win over those people in and who might have been on the jury that they don't know what the jury's politics are necessarily and make sure that they didn't associate a prosecution of a police officer with this larger movement to abolish police or defunct police or things like that. Because you know obviously the prosecution in this particular case had anyone who was critical of police or anyone who wanted to abolish. The police who was on the jury would have been on their side. They're not gonna lose them by. Saying policing is a noble profession but maybe they will win over some people who think police have been as a culture treated badly or you know. Treat it as some sort of You know boogeyman or or blamed for things. That aren't there problems. Maybe they can win them over. And say hey. We're saying they're good. Police were saying this guy was the bad apple and look at all these good police that we brought on the stand that you can still respect and still feel like you can come over to our side and say.

"Of the verdict today. But i just got out here but like i everybody's coming together right. Well let me ask you this. You know there's been a lot of violence in the lead up to all of this. We saw the rioting in the summer. We seek cops pelted with rocks and bricks and bottles and ballot off cocktails. Three thousand were injured over the summer. We see know police precincts and other other buildings burned to the ground and arson and looting. What do you think about those people that that throw those bricks and throw those rocks at cops that are just trying to maintain order not the cop in this case. Obviously no party guy everything else going on just this. What's going on to. I guess those people just really pat up better. Just had you know too much you know i do like for example i'm sure you condemn officer derek. Chauvin in this case right. Okay take place. Because i still do my things man. What about the payments you pick up a brick and throw briquetted innocent cop said would you as a person would you ever pick up a brick bricker a bottle and throw it at a cop. That's just trying to maintain order when that does happen. What do you think of the people that do that. I don't know i cannot. I don't have that type of mindsets even think like that. We've seen the videos at this. How we saw it all summer loss. You've seen videos of it. I have no idea with with those people are thinking right now and it's not good for anybody. I think they're fed up. What's going on okay. People have you know when you're fresh to the people for too long. And the troy like boiling point. You know what they're doing at the moment. Yeah it's it's key von right. Is that your name. Yeah all right. Thank you for taking time to be with us. And you give the phone back to army right. Thank you all right. I'm me horowitz Thank you so much for giving us that on location report at a minneapolis. We'll have full coverage tonight on hannity nine eastern I'm i think it's going to be reporting from the scene for us tonight. Eight hundred nine. Four one sean is our number. You wanna be a part of the program Let's say hi to pat is in boston. What's up pat. How are you showing. I think we all agree that there will be riots in destruction in murder by anti whites despite this verdict. Because that's what they were going to do anyway. Anti whites have made it clear that the violence won't stop until law and order is destroyed. They're able to do whatever they want to you. And your family as a consequence all you saw the story today that came out this this report content of the character. You know this the school for example Where leaked audio captures. A headmaster at this elite new york city school was on the daily mail dot com capturing the headmaster green with the teacher who was banned from the classroom for speaking out about quote white shaming and there was another viral a letter from a parent to a very elite private school in the upper east side of new york and literally saying you know we demonizing why people are being born. How about we just judge people by their character and at what point we gotta have that message get out and you see for example. You know every three to four years. Why do i always point out. The democratic playbook divide this country claim. Republicans a racist sexist homophobic zena phobic islamophobic. They want dirty air dirty water grandma thrown over a cliff in a wheelchair law as i do endowed by our creator rights. Come from god. God created every man woman and child with the difference for human beings. Being that human beings have a propensity for either good or evil. Let's say hello to david and idaho. David how are you. i'm good. how are you good. I just just about their children conviction. And i would just a little steep at all. I mean i'm not saying that. He's fully innocent. But i thought it was a little quick to convict him of second and third degree murder. Okay appreciate the call. Chris in pennsylvania. Hi sean. I was listening to your conversation young lady before the verdict and she was saying about how. She wouldn't call the police to help our if she were in trouble. When you asked about someone feeding her home and i find it very disturbing that anyone would have that kind of psychosis to not want to call the police to help them. I mean it's like the country is completely lost their minds and all sense common sense. I mean you got the democratic party. Now it's it's gone from defunding the police now dismantle the police in and then we see the corresponding we. We see the dramatic increases of murders in every big city that they've done this including minneapolis new york l. a. You know you name it nationwide. It's up almost forty percent murders up forty percent and speaking out. They wanna define the police if anything they should fund them even more and get these officers more counseling more avenues to vent their frustrations that our concerns. So they're they're not carrying this stress around with them on the job so we can help them to avoid these kinds of situations in the forward. You know i. I trained mixed martial arts an hour and a half a day and i'm i'm a student i am and i do this every day and i still. I know what it would take for them to get up to speed where i am at this particular point in my training. They don't get enough trading and they don't have the options. That's the reason i've been pointing out the burner gun and these different nonlethal options that we need to provide the police so they don't just have one choice one option and that's a lethal option But you know that was not the case here and but anyway we'll be watching.

"Yesterday was the first day of the trial of derek. chauvin. He's on trial for the murder. Of george floyd just just ten months ago. The prosecution played the whole video for the jury. All nine minutes twenty nine seconds of it complete with audio of floyd gasping. I can't breathe. Twenty seven times witnesses urging chauvin to get off floyd's neck. One of the for the prosecutor was the nine one one operator. Generally scurry generally is a nine one one dispatcher. Who was working on the day of floyd's death and she testified that she alerted a police department supervisor that she had a gut instinct that something wasn't wrong. Something was wrong. There's something just wasn't right. Chauvin charged with second degree murder third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. defense argued. That george floyd died of cardiac arrhythmia hypertension and coronary disease. He claimed toxicology tests revealed fenton all an methamphetamine were in floyd system which along with adrenaline all active further compromise and already compromised heart a really well who brought. They're trying to drill and not chauvin knee on neck that were trying to say. Well listen to me. You can have cancer diabetes alzheimer's and authorize all at the same time. But if somebody put me on your neck for eight minutes and forty six seconds and you keep saying. I can't breathe. It is the lack of oxygen. That causes anything to be heightened and your knee on his neck. Suppressing his asaf icus and his breathing passages airflow caused not enough oxygen to get to whatever you might say he thus producing his death that my dear friend is murder lawyers. Good as you all right there. What you just that's murray. I mean you you talk about wanting to system all day long problem. He wasn't having wasn't finished. All the damn problem was the lack of oxygen. Yes when twenty seven times on his mother when he called on his mother who was already passed away. You brother dasa dead. That's a dead giveaway signal right here. This is almost like a deathbed confession. Day take people's last words only deathbed as as fat cause it really ain't no time to lap. When he called his mother who was already gone he knew then he was in trouble and he was dying and it wasn't because of fenton all or we hard on none of that. He was fine pressure. Hypertension was company. He was fide. When you throw him on the ground he was okay but when you leave your full body weight on that man's back of his neck and you heard him say twenty seven times i can't breathe and you never wants just tried to sit him cuff his kids do and you've got five white men standing at y'all scared one black dude.

"chauvin" Discussed on Reasonable Doubt
"I don't know you know but apparently if you believe what's written. I haven't looked at him yet but it's been reported in the coroner's notes that he said something to the effect of. If floyd had been flirting founded home he would have ruled it. An accidental overdose right. So that's tough and that's a fact they're going to have prosecutions gotta deal with. But here's another thing. Prosecution has to deal with Chauvin wasn't going cowboy or rogue with the knee. That's part of their training. So if in fact he is following procedure of their training. That seems like one of the more. So there's a couple of i mean here's how i would Couch it if i was defending chauvin i would say we tried to get him into the car he got in the car. We got him out of the car he was saying he couldn't breathe while he was standing. You know trying to get in the car or out of the car. And then the officer subdued him in in a way that was consistent with his training. So how are you going to convict the guy who was essentially executing the training procedure for keeping a suspect subdued. When he was merely using. What now you can. You can talk about the technique and we can talk about removing that technique from the training of of new officers. But if he's doing procedure then why is he guilty. Well in this. Why love talking about these cases. You always get right. You've got a natural intuition for this. Because i was thinking this week you know. There's there's been legal skirmishes. The motions called motions in limited. They're call in california. I don't know what the nomenclature is for minnesota How many of prior acts are gonna come in. And i believe the judges ruled that. At least two are gonna come in of children's well. The problem with that is chauvin. I mean i. If i defense lawyer i kind of like be careful what you wish for the prosecution. I want the prior to some degree to come in. Because i'm arguing the very same. I'm gonna say wait a second here. Yeah there were prior. He was still on the force. He was still in command position. They didn't do anything to him. And by the way. I mentioned this before every single one of these prosecutions and i'm almost always in these cases representing the person who is who's left holding the bag may mainly widow or the children every single one of these a criminal prosecution. The defence for the cop is going to have a use of force expert and that usa force experts gonna come up there and say no harm. No foul does the way they trained at this perfectly good and that's that's exactly what was supposed to do what he was trained to do. And yeah it's not pretty but that's what ends up happening. There will be a guy who testifies to that or the defense guaranteed well again. I'm a layperson but if somebody is executing technique that they received in training to do their job whatever the job is i mean if it's an airline pilot what if it's just an airline pilot and they said look When the plane loses its left engine you gotta go full right rudder and put the flaps at thirty degrees and the guy did it in the plane crashed. You're still would say well. The pilot was you'd say well. The pilot has murdered all these passengers but the pilot would say i was just doing what i was trained to do in this situation and i didn't make it up. I learned it in pilot school. That's what they're trying to. That was the boeing dreamliner defense basically the violence or saying. They never told us that there was going to be this problem up on takeoff by. We did exactly what we were told to do. And you know the sorry charlie there. There was nothing we could do. A lot of what is happening in this chopin prosecution by the prosecution..

"chauvin" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"An officer did commit a crime or not as of the time. We're recording this. What derek chauvin is being charged with is actually still being decided that's because prosecutors want to charge him with second degree unintentional murder and second degree manslaughter and third degree murder. In minnesota third degree murder has typically been reserved for a case in which more than one person has been put at risk. Say if someone shoots into a crowd but the state attorney general wants to expand this definition. So that's why prosecutors are pushing yet again to get third degree murder reinstated and we still don't know exactly how that is going to pan out but it would make way more difficult for derek chauvin and his attorney to defend him against three separate charges. Why is that harder. I think it restricts the arguments that he can make to say that it's not his fault or to say that it was self defense because he now has to avoid implicating himself for third degree murder and the exact definition statute of that as well as second degree murder and second degree manslaughter. And so it's it's more challenging legally and it restricts the arguments that he can make to defend himself. Do you look at this. Changing interpretation of what third degree murder is in minnesota as meaningful in terms of what prosecutors are now willing to do how aggressively. They wanna pursue charges against police officers. So when i was talking to the other day an attorney was arguing that maybe the in case law the way. The appeals court interpreted third degree murder. Maybe means that that is a charge that can be successfully prosecuted against police officers if they have this broader definition of that. So i mean if it is upheld by the state supreme court where it's headed now that could potentially be one more and maybe a more solid tool for prosecutors in future prosecutions if they they do have instance where police kill someone after the break.

"chauvin" Discussed on 5 Things
"Selection is set to begin on monday in the trial of derek chauvin. The former minneapolis. Police officer charged in the death of george. Floyd chauvin was seen on video. Last may kneeling on floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. As floyd said he couldn't breath the question at the heart of the case whether what people saw on video was murder prosecutors say the forty six old was killed by show. Wtn's the but the defense will likely argue. That floyd staff was the result of a struggle with police drugs in his system and health issues. Like heart disease criminal. Justice correspondent tammy abdollah has more on what to expect. We're going to get a lot of the bystanders. Who were there likely. Called as witnesses so they will tell us what was seen on video by by you know because we can't necessarily see clearly what what's happening on the bystander side of things and there was an off duty firefighter who the prosecution's likely to call up. Who repeatedly i think it was thirty times asked officers checked. George floyd pulse and wanted to provide medical assistance but was pushed off and pushed away by derek chauvin. So she's probably going to come up as a witness to this to this video into what happened. There are also going to probably call up other folks who were there including a professional fighter former professional fighter. Who did mixed martial arts and who you know basically was asking chauvin and other officers to stop doing this quote unquote blood chauque. Which he is learned is very dangerous to us when fighting because it can easily kill a person we will likely get into aspects of what police need to do when they believe someone is resisting arrest or when someone is resisting arrest. There is very clear. Training in minneapolis police departments policies and procedures handbook. That says that you know you can use any conscious neck restraint when someone is quote unquote actively resisting police. But but you cannot if they are passively resisting police. There will be a whole discussion about this use of force and whether it was warranted when especially after george floyd became unresponsive for roughly three minutes and chauvin continued to keep his knee on george floyd neck for all the latest throughout the trial.

That's horrible Jeez and you spoke to some of the people that have had violently arrested. You know. i've read some articles. They're really really excellent. And can you tell us a little bit more about you know those individuals and what. They had to say about their encounters with him. Yeah absolutely. I mean i'd start with The woman who what was the first person we mentioned in our articles zoya code She was arrested by a derek chauvin after a domestic incident in her in her home and She just it was very emotional for her. To talk about it She just described it. As you know this man at the zoya maybe about one hundred hundred and ten pounds soaking wet How they arrested her in her own home. Handcuffed her how she wasn't fighting. Back are resisting in any way. They carried her out of her home while handcuffed placed her on the ground That's actually one of the things that that came up in our our reporting in the police report they said they placed her on the grass Zoya told us that she remembered very distinctly being placed on the concrete. And how you know how. Hard and how Uncomfortable it was to be under. Show vins new With her her upper body all all press into the concrete and the attorney general in their report Or in a report that detailed this arrest were able to get a of the body camera footage and it showed that in fact Zoya had been placed primarily on the concrete But yeah to to go back to her account you just remember is not resisting But but thinking they're going to kill me Zoya new philander casteel. Not really well. But she knew him she'd Known him from growing up in in minneapolis and this was about a year after he had been killed. in the minneapolis suburb by a saint. Anthony police officer and she remembered. And you know really stuck with me calling out. You don't kill me. Don't kill me like you killed. 'cause jeez so in all of these incidents you know what really stood out to you in these stories and these interviews with these people who are speaking now for the first time about their experiences you know not just the consistency but the fact that it's all with the same person and a Curious when you're hearing this because you're reporting on it. How do you know feel about that. I don't know man. you know. First and foremost. It's always Empathy right at and Being thankful that people are willing to sh- to revisit these painful memories and traumatic memories And do so in the service of the general public understanding what what happened So i think that's the first thing that comes up for me for me personally on the all of the other things that stood out. Is you know all of the people who spoke to for this story. had a number of interactions with police and law enforcement in their lives before And yet they all sort of singled. Derek chauvin out as being uniquely gruff or abrasive or uncaring about their pain or discomfort. Right so like there's a I think people have an intuition that oh you know anyone who gets arrested is gonna feel like the cop treated them badly because no one wants to get arrested. That may be true too to some degree. But i talked to some use of force experts while reporting the story and i kind of mentioned that point and one of the folks i talked to. I remember him saying no. Actually most people who are justice involved Kind of care about procedure. And they care about you. Okay fine you know i was. I was doing something wrong. You caught me arrested me. It is what it is but treat me like a human being right right. Treat me like my life matters And so that that is also one of the things that stood out to me. You know this. This was a bridge too far for all the all the people who we spoke to bitterness. It's you know. Just an accurate description of how people are feeling there'd be right right. That's a great way to put it right and so at this point. Prosecutors want to use these cases at show. Vince trial and other examples where he didn't actually use excessive force. What prosecutors saying so far. And how important is this to their overall case. I can't speak on how important it is to their case can say that A number of these Into of these individuals are on the witness list so there is a potential that they will be called What i can also say that the the judge federal judge in this case judge k hill has rejected the majority of the cases that prosecutors had raised their basically. They're allowing two cases to be entered into evidence In this matter and they've They've rejected the majority of them or the judge has rejected the majority of them. And so I you know. I think that's one of the one of the reasons why this story also felt if you you could say gratifying to publish. Is that The jury in this case is not is unlikely to hear many of the stories that we told You know but the the public will be able to hear.
