Well good morning guys activity again I mean it very clearly. The economy I interviewed Condoleezza comic book. And they resulting. Impact on the Russian investigation. Mean what we're saying is a continuation of the partisan nature of the reaction. To you. Issues affecting the president and it from my perspective. The partisan reaction to the Russian investigation more broadly. It's disturbing. To a certain degree because. Where you know we're still looking after the fact that Russia. Engaged in a comprehensive effort to influence our election. The social media these cyber tactics. But we need to let that investigation continues so we can protect future elections and the partisan bickering. And the partisan positioning on that as really undermining our national security. I was about to ask you how way detrimental is this for law enforcement in this country for this. Dispute between homey and the president to be played out so publicly. Whether you're.

Is influenced by the credibility of the present to the rest of the world. And let there at the strike this area or actions we may take again in the future.
