If the so-called Justice Department unwisely ever again were to request my presence before you on any matter, I would reply thusly:
“I do not concede that I am the legal person you’re looking for. I will permit you five minutes to demonstrate that I am.

“In short, good sir, why are you talking?”
You hired on with the wrong outfit, mister. You might want to leave it off your C.V.
