Would it sound like this?
"I suggest that person is lying," he said. "And if that person has the guts, let's see who it is who made the comment that Sandy Berger stuffed something into his socks."
What does the person's "guts" have to do with it? Is there something they should be afraid of?
The speaker was Lanny Davis. A bit of background:
Law enforcement sources said archive staff told FBI agents they saw Berger placing items in his jacket and pants, and one archive staffer told agents that Berger also placed something in his socks.
That latter allegation drew a sharp response from Berger associate and former White House lawyer Lanny Davis, who challenged any unnamed official who makes such an accusation to come forward publicly.
Now, it seems as if there could be two targets for Mr. Davis' implied threat. Is he directing it at the "law enforcement sources" who claim to be passing along the statements from the archive staff?
Or is he directing it at the archive staff themselves? If this reaches court, we will hear witness testimony, including on this point. Unless the intimidation is successful, of course.
