He added: “I don’t think a film crew is appropriate for something like this, but the people who were raising money to pay the experts and the lawyers were trying to raise money and that was part of it, so j I thought, I didn’t mean bad things but a certain distraction was part of it. I didn’t approve of it but I’m not always the boss.
