Through out his speech. We also have hot and very well source reporters here former Pennsylvania have a routine which covers the White House and congress he just took it to the next level. It's an analyst. And essentially. I mean what struck me about that amazing image. Pills I'm on their faces particularly who I mean I wonder what is going on anything in their minds. Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could fix it. I just that moment of him walking into the room this morning the Department of Justice was a well factor those emails were hacked. By the Russian government and somehow the ended up and they.
