UPDATE Day 9 of the Bingo Trial

1:29 Question from Juror: Are all Senators expected to know all the bills that submitted? Please wait to the end of all testimony and most of your questions will probably be answered.

 

Mr. Franklin: Mr. Franklin is showing Mr. Beason another exhibit that has been admitted. Would you take a look at the front page of that exhibit and remind who you meeting with and where? My office, Jarrod Massey, Februaty 16, 2010. Do you recall asking in that meeting if you need to meet with Milton? Yes sir. They are reading the transcript about that question. Who would I talk to? You would talk to me and Ronnie first, I wouldn’t talk to Milton. Massey, Let me tell you how it will work. Beason: Well that is true. Massey said You and I will need to understand where we are going and then we will talk to Milton. Um Huh. Massy and Dr. Hubbard and what not. Now that is on the 16th right.

 

Now on the 17th did you have a conversation with someone. Yes sir, I think that was Brad Unruh. Franklin is showing Beason another exhibit which is a transcript of a tape. Is this a telephone conversation or in person conversation? Telephone. Did you inquire of Mr. Unruh if you need to talk to Milton during that conversation? I am not sure you will have to refresh my memory. You need to go to page 10 line 26 and see if that refreshes your memory? Yes sir. Here again if you would be yourself and I will be Mr. Unruh and lets read until we get to page 11 to line 19. Beason, but I still wonder if I should talk to Milton instead of Ronnie. Unruh: Well let me tell you , I couldn’t get up with Milton right then but let me tell you what I thought about..Massey has a better relation with Hubbard and can get things done, we don’t want to talk on telephone. And they continue and Unruh says we don’t want to bring big dog in unless we have to. (Big Dog means Milton McGregor)
