That they were that they -- I don't know why they were at the grand opening is epic campaign office but they read their after the event that -- And where in the hallway.
And you know.
They overheard the conversation going on which it out and got out.
It doesn't act it -- it was an extremely tacky conversation where they said very tasteless bank that McConnell campaign did.
But it lives up by the competition and to let.
And when I get they heard all of the beat -- split they have been they have been techie thing that McConnell camping with the I think they decided to record -- And they told me about that later that day and that with or that either later that they -- the next day I don't really remember to do with you know over might have my -- But they told me about it and I didn't think anything other I didn't really -- you know -- didn't think that.

Lurking outside of the Watergate offices they actually did bug the offices.
As opposed to what you're telling me Curtis and that -- and Riley in Morrison said happened here.
