We'll continue after that Letterman says he's going public because someone on his staff try to -- actually at CBS rather try to blackmail him for two million box.
This morning that's CBS employees been arrested charge of attempted Grand Larceny in the case and by the way Letterman married his longtime girlfriend back in March the couple has a a five year old son and John Q Kelly is a former prosecutor.
My guess on this topic now good morning to you -- even looks like they got the guy if everything plays out the way it is and his credibility would be toast right.
Quote does it you know -- -- that -- taken halfway in Boston when he looked to package in the backseat and that would adjust and conspiracy charge you could claim that he wasn't gonna pull through with that the the fact that.
You know meetings were set -- that 22 million dollar check was passed from from David he accepted it and upon certain terms it's it's it's basic not just extortion it's it's blackmail more common everyday phrase we use.
Well Martha we're talking earlier this have to watch what he says now I'm he says the last of that but certainly it's gonna come up again who would literally Leon it is sad.
And put it back in a bottle right now in terms of his public comments are -- you get immediate.

To put it opens that's interesting role this too this is from last night when Letterman -- on to explain how it unfolded.
Apparently inside one of his automobiles for -- -- Who would it be in embarrassing if -- were made public perhaps it would graduate.
This is specially for the women do.
Clearly to the audience today though this was coming a lot of nervous laughter you have to look at -- -- here that.
We -- the wrong -- there this is how we describe when he found out about it.
There's -- a letter in the package and it's did say is that.
I know that you do some terrible terrible things.
And I can prove that you do these terrible things and sure enough contained in the package was stuff.

At 6 in the morning and maybe this looks better -- you know.
But but 6 in the morning all you can think about is every terrible thing you've ever done -- Honestly is he out of trouble Letterman and I could -- be in trouble CBS.
Oh sure and the question is how big the ground -- loses it's like -- Don Imus in Europe stirred is just a small groundswell that he questions whether this is gonna get.
-- today how many of these women step forward how many of these women are adamant about pursuing it rather than let it go and in the other questions going to be this good how did this package of -- -- terrible terrible.
Paraphernalia -- whatever it is is gentleman have come from was it provided to him by these other women and he was stepping toward what that it just.
I don't think it's going I think it's gonna that it's going to be around for a week or two -- it it could get ugly and I do think ultimately could jeopardize job.
While John Q Kelly thank you we'll pick it up again next week in a little -- for the weekend but he himself said last night that the evidence was strong enough to convince him.
That he had to have a meeting with this -- and apparently they met twice in the last three weeks John Q Kelly thank you John -- no little Martha.
