I think it's very positive step. A special counsel has been appointed and the special counsel of the caliber Bob Mueller sixty has superb reputation. As director of the FBI. His well thought about people on both sides of the aisle so I think it was of the very solid choice. I think it's a good thing. Conference this morning and you know I think it's a good thing because as takes the politics out of hopefully this is gotten too. Two political. People that any news comes out those on the left yell impeach some on the right say it's fate. So this is hopefully detox is some of the politics of it we're just getting information about this so.

When they decide if Cheryl Mills community so I want that's the Condit that when all that information we'll reveal. Anderson I don't believe is necessary I don't. So that. As these versions. The news. Very solid and significant. Step he heads expertise and experience. And the guts and backbone.
