The NYPD I didn't think nothing illegal -- there -- standing behind me and like.
-- attorney general.
With an opportunity at -- back -- and that's what went from there and demanded that up that investigation.
Our -- but no we're not going to do that.
Where this story goes from here but it's much I think getting health check in with governor -- -- -- The NYPD has more on the defense and it's going to have to count there.
Even more questions about.
