Criminal defense attorney former prosecutor -- over good to have you with us but let's start with majority areas.
The jurors back at it again why don't they just turn the whole thing over to them or have they in fact doesn't.
What you know what they're asking some great questions we will not many states allow jurors to ask questions -- Arizona is one -- -- And today they're now turning on the expert I almost felt sorry for him they are reeling him and cool he's backing -- corner almost and getting -- it's it.

What did he have access to -- did he speak with you know there's a million things that need to be investigated and the fact that they've only charged with obstruction tells me they know very little about this guy.
