We can go back and forth -- that I don't right it's not so much to belabor the point yet as much to raise a bigger issue that even your most loyal supporters and fans of -- yes.
That you're gonna run for present United States engineers is out there and it might have just been noise and -- just in an agreement as you said one of the many things that comes up to the -- of running.
One of the most prestigious associations around.
But that it should have been -- -- met -- -- -- this is out there let's get out a way designed over the media I know what's gonna happen right boom you didn't.
I -- we will my staff when we started this campaign.
We immediate opposition research -- myself.
In terms of asking questions.
But now it was a formal document so I haven't seen a formal document an asset now would not people.
And we they ask me questions and I.
Based I told him about this restaurant association incident wanted to say they -- is not an -- not important because I say here's what I would call.
And -- said if you wanna talk to a restaurant association go talk to them but they have a policy of not breaking.
Employee employee -- confidentiality.
But I -- Internet that they didn't write that and away.
Well they gave permission for -- to do so and that's surprise me.
Quite frankly I didn't care whether they did it one way or another but so what I wasn't gonna do.
Was to try and encourage them to break a policy that they pay it since the organization started.
When they have a confidentiality.
Agreement between and employed here and the -- -- Using data association through use them under the bus because they were apparently poised.
To back -- for president yes in this -- -- game -- -- I I I think there.
They're looking at the New Mexico governor right well not you don't kick but my point is that you're not on there well that's what happens.
Well as an organization I don't know but his what I do know.
A lot of the members of the association allotted to pass offices they are supporting me and a big way.
Dearest where is Joseph fassel who's the chairman of the association fair right around -- time you know after I was he has backed me individually.
And a lot of -- -- don't feel better to do so how it was not a liberal you know I -- else -- -- a -- at all and that did that again it goes back to near are you worried serious.
Presidential candidate yes and all this comes back to raise when do you buy these allegations and that.
-- Did your staff did you.
Fumble on this and handling this know here's why.
We were contacted by Politico.
Who was trying to based us into saying something.
When they didn't identify the individuals.
They didn't I didn't that they didn't have any documentation.
And so as a businessman it was -- decision to my staff.
Wait and see what they put out there.
That's like negotiating against yourself.
They had no documentation.
They had no they had in the Democrat who these women were.
And we were supposed to respond know so we waited BM when they put it out there.
Then I went on TV that Monday.
Basically recalling what I remember.
And yes at the beginning of the day I have recalled as much as I did not -- today and people say that because of that we mishandled it.
That that may be the case but I would have rather gotten out front the next day.
So my supporters and no I had not -- hat.
And even though I may have nots.
Precisely stated everything the way it should have been stated that the Begin -- of the Davis is -- ended the day that last in the mean that I did with Greta.
Basically laid out all of the facts and that's when we clarified the difference between settlement and angry men.
And a recollection of everything that I could -- -- the -- so from that standpoint.
Rather than wait to dates.
So we could get -- ready to respond.
No become back -- suggested that I have something what we would try to understand it.
The if you -- we had waited that would have been a 48.
Hour news cycle -- not say -- what do you think released this informant.
Who do you think -- -- -- ago or got and out there early on your campaign seem to be looking at Rick Perry.
And then -- this is that.
-- others saying maybe someone in the White House.
-- what we don't know for sure but when we look at all of these -- incidents since.
Is -- coincidence that might send it.
Political assault that now works for -- I'm not you know at first I said it could have been him.
The fact that there is a super -- that supports Governor -- They hit that.
You know used to do some work for the rest -- missiles -- -- but they would he is still kind of stand by and it's.
I'm here and it was a repair and even need to don't know how does not simply saying that they have too many coincidences but he is what -- we believe but we don't have -- -- -- not gonna -- and about it.
People who do not want me.
To get the nomination.
All become president.
I don't know who these people are is probably a network of them -- behind this because they knew.
Just what you indicated -- to Begin in this interview.
They knew that some people will going to believe the accusation.
Whether it was true or not let's take a little bit of channel -- -- star.
And seeing whether or not it will -- up to reduce the enthusiasm.
That people have they knew that so they achieve that objective but here's what backfire.
More people believe me then the accusations.
And they have demonstrated that not only with -- Verbal support.
People wanted to volunteer they have demonstrated -- will.
That dollar is no doubt and get -- German civilians steadily a passionate yet your fans and your supporters so.
Why not a lie detector -- you -- offered that in your press conference here today.
Hum put out there I'm taking a -- lie detector tests I'm -- -- this is flying -- shut -- Because here again why negotiate against itself but somebody comes forward.
And they have a claim against me and dale -- -- take a lie detector test I'll take a lie detector test I'm not gonna go and take one against.
Friend no documentation.
That's not good business and here's the other thing.
The housing private investigator by the name TJ ward out of Atlanta Georgia.
Who has some sophisticated technology that a lot of people may never heard about he took my statement from our press conference my parent ran it through his software.
And was willing to go -- record because many law enforcement agencies use the software.
And -- -- Herman Cain is telling the truth he did the same thing for this woman who accuse me the other day what was she would -- we all -- it.
And went through and said I'm sorry but that was a lot of fun truce in that statement.
