SB-21?.. "they won't have, they won't even have their fingerprints on the (bill)"
In one conversation from June 8, 2006, played while Allen was on the stand, he recalled a discussion he had with the head of Conoco Phillips in Alaska, Jim Bowles, about the profits tax.
"I said between Pete Kott and Ben ... they won't have, they won't even have their fingerprints on the (bill)." It seemed Allen was referring to the "fingerprints" of the producers, but his remarks were ambiguous enough that they could have been those of Stevens and Kott.
As the tapes were played, Allen testified he had no idea that his phones were taped or that a secret camera had been placed in his hotel suite in Juneau by the FBI under a court order.
But Andrew, You have your fingerprints all over SB-21!
