Message 00722: Fwd: fbi

btw, is this quote verbatim or did you at least write it down very soon after the call? Or, was this a recollection or reconstruction later?

Am putting together a 1,200 word nuclear missile for Mr. Duff ... if he screws up my nomination, I want to make sure we're both out of a job. I'm going to sit out the week either way ... there is some white house action happening and I want to see where they are going this week. But, getting the letter ready just in case gives me something to do. :)

"I'm sure you can guess what this is about. PACER. We're interested in
sitting down and talking to you about it, more so to just find out
exactly what happened, so we can help the US Courts get their system
back up. As you know, it's still down.  ... If you'd be willing to
just sit down with us and talk in the next couple weeks. If it was
something bigger than that we wouldn't have called you to ask. We can
come to wherever you're at. We can meet you at a Starbucks or a
restaurant; it doesn't need to be at your house."

Thoughts on next move?
