And it's good -- time for the German -- -- just to resign or the president to appoint a replacement.
We commissioner Bart Chilton on and he said.
You know if people are going to live and -- -- there's kind of nothing you can do about that and and he's talking about I think he was making implications about that yet you best situation that you can't regulate against people were -- determined to steal.
What do you think of that answer.
Well you cannot prevent everyone who wants to cheat and steal from being able to cheat steal what you can certainly do a better job -- seems to -- that has been occurring.
In net discovering that lying and cheating and responding much more quickly.
And so no that's not a there are inept in a perfect world where people behavior -- -- it morally you cannot prevent that action from from always happening.
But you certainly can respond more quickly and you could root out the corruption.
In in a much more rapid fashion.
-- -- for -- you so is a solution and simply finding someone more competent to run the CFTC or are further regulations needed here.
We know I I certainly am willing to look at the idea of additional regulations but I have no doubt but what has that that what has occurred here already violate the regulation it's not that they did something that was.
Not out of the country to a regulation it's that beat violation of that regulation was not discovered.
I and so I don't think this is BS he immediate call for a dramatic change in the regulatory environment it's called sport or that it necessary devotion to result.
-- the capital -- the issue say.
To be paying much more attention to these things but is currently happening.

Are taking himself out about investigation.
Seems to -- that there was a conflict of interest conflict of interest -- -- well and they have to the discovery of the of the probable mode at that IMF global.
Trisha -- recently said it it is an -- chairman -- -- -- say this is a great it was the nature are finding as well we rely -- the -- the CME and others to be the first -- of oversight.
Of the futures commission merchants I mean he's basically trying to blame the business model to a certain extent.
What's your response to that.
-- surely been a supporter of the self regulatory environment which -- CFTC is operated.
But I would say that ultimate responsibility lies with the CFTC.
It can it appears in this case that said they accepted information.
Just without any real.
Looking behind the document in this case a bank account document.
And so it seems to -- that date yes that's self regulatory environment is a good one but the CDC still had a role to play.
To make sure that it is doing its job addicted it's more than just a cursory look.
Right senator thank you so much for coming -- we appreciate it.
