covering those stories went extensively
into other cases :00 brought charges forward where
i think its.
again dont take my word for it.
look at what the process did.
JESSICA ARPthe da was looking for whether anything
was illegal and some people may beleive that you knowing
about a separate email system in your office would

at things in great length and great detail.
