Video Text

But take number one in the deposition of Charles Anthony Hughes. In a matter of nutrition distribution versus enhanced athlete at all in the United States District Court, Eastern District of California. Case number two colon one seven dash seen Dash zero nine one dash T l Dash J. Today is May twenty nine, twenty seven, twenty eight eighteen and the time of the video hundred. My plate. To me, the art of today is Alan with me. This video deposition is taking place at six to six. Bush and full of Los Angeles, California nine zero zero one seven. Well, could counsel, please? Voice I didn't find themselves And stay with Robert Keller, counsel for plants and interesting distribution. Richard and Grey Council for defendant enhance athlete Think Anthony Pizarro. Mr. Hughes, criminal defense attorney here to represent him for the purposes of this deposition. Well, the court reporter, please swear in the witness. Please, Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you're about to give in the cause now pending shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Yes. As official matter, I'd like to note for the record that there is counsel present that is not counsel of record for Mr Hughes in this action or for enhance athlete, there's been no substitution. And he's representing Mr Hughes, who's apparently subject to some sort of criminal penalty, and I would object. And I'm asking him to leave because he's not allowed to be here pursuant to the party's protective order entered on March seventh twenty eighteen and have a copy. If you'd like to review it, please. Wing off record while I read this. We don't have time for that. Okay, well, I'm not going anywhere. Mr. Taller would like to terminate this deposition and go get a protective order to keep me out of here. He's more than welcome. I've got one written, funny. Fantastic. Mr. Hughes is here today. By order of the court, his presence should not be construed as taking any position whatsoever concerning the relationship, if any. With enhanced athlete. To the extent that any questions here today, Mr Taller raise issues that are subject of this criminal investigation, he's going to being invoking his Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate himself. So why we here? To make sure that your questions don't unnecessarily infringe upon his right. Fifth Amendment. Right? I understand that, but I believe Mr Hughes is perfectly capable to do that on his own. More over. You have to follow the rules and you have to follow the court order. If you want to start this deposition by violating a court order, that's on you and there will be penalties for that kind. Mr. Taller, You're more than welcome to start the deposition. Okay? I noted, sir, I know that walking to start the deposition? You don't have to yell. The second thing I'd like to note is from my understanding, only enhanced athlete is under criminal investigation. Are you saying that Mr Hughes is under criminal investigation as well? I'm not inclined for that. You will research. You know it has athlete you're making. I see that I have no idea what's going on with Inspector. Criminal investigation. Okay, if you're asserting that you're here based on investigation with respect to Mr Hughes personally, then that will change the dynamic of my objections to whatever you might state on DH. So it's important to know at the outset what exactly is going on. If it's just this criminal investigation with respect, enhance athlete, then I would posit that there's absolutely no basis for a criminal or to be president with respect to Mr Hughes, I'm sorry. Don't the allocations of your complaint allege alter ego and that Mr Hughes is also on an officer enhanced athlete? Isn't that the basis of you getting him to appear today? The yes or no? I'm asking the question. I'm asking you not a lot to ask, but sit here and argue all day. You can waste your time. As you know, You can't wear your time. I think this is quite critical. The the Fifth Amendment privilege on ly extends to individuals. If Mr Hughes wants to invoked that privilege on his own, it's his prerogative. However, if the investigation is on ly with respect to a commercial entity, a corporate entity, then the Fifth Amendment privilege does not extend to the entity. And I know that you know that that's not necessarily true. Well, we're going to disagree If you're threatening Teo. I'm asking you believe you're in violation of a court order? We'LL take the proper steps to deal with that. Okay, so let's commence in the deposition. First things first. I have to serve you with these Mr. Hughes, the's A. Apparently there was some problem with where your prior counsel wouldn't accept service on your behalf. This is service of the two active lawsuits. For the record, this is Thie Ah, Nutrition distribution versus Enhanced athlete Scott Cavallo and handsome athlete Gilmore Engineering and Charles Anthony Hughes. Case number two one seven c. V. Zero two o six nine And I'm serving even that on the record. Second matter is disarms Case The reason we're here. Case number two one seven C V zero one four nine hundred. I'm serving you with that. All right? I will. Of course. Yeah. These are two different cases, yes. One is colloquially referred to as a storm's case. And what is the DNP case? Okay. God, I wasn't aware of any counsel not accepting services. Yeah, well, it's not needed me to go out for a while. Around. All right, let's get started. Mr. Hughes, you've been sworn in your here pursuant to a court order. Correct? Uh, yes. Exhibited liketo designate the court order. Compelling. Mr. He's attendance would like to reference it. There it is. Exhibit one Sorry, like to go with numbers instead of letters. And Exhibit two will be the nose of deposition. For today's deposition. Should have seen this council. Have you seen this document before, Mr Hughes? Yes. Okay. And it's basically just come for a follow up to the court order confirming the date in time today. I just wanted to make sure you had that in your possession. Oops, and have reviewed it. Mr Hughes, if you're ready. Uh, part of the reason you're here is as a corporate designee, managing agent for marketing for enhance apathy. Are you familiar with some of the pleading that went back and forth on that matter? Objection. Fifth Amendment personal. You can't make objections on the record. You're not counsel Teo Opposition. That's his counsel of record years. Criminal lawyer. You're not counsel in this matter. You cannot make objections on the record period. I mean, it's a fact you're violating a court order. Do you know that? I don't think this is a serious problem with I don't think you should take your obligations so lightly. I think they could make objections. You cannot hear he's not even his counsel of record. So why is it that he's so so he doesn't have counsel of record? This is me here. There's no substitution of counsel in this case. He represents enhance athlete, and he's partly here as a representative of enhanced athlete. Those are all facts. You are not entitled to make objections on the record period. Wait, I'm I'm here as partially a representative of the correct and also also you would just serve Yeah, correct. And I don't have counsel of record. Correct. So how would I need a substitution if there's no attorney to substitute out? Well, you could represent yourself if you want. That. He is not your counsel of record is my point. So be okay. Let's say let's say we wanted it. I'm not going to have to stop that. Don't entertain this. You listen, if you have a problem with it, we can go on long motion when you argue about these objections. But I'm staying. I'm objecting. I think you should just get over it and continue when we can deal with it later, Mister Taller. His Fifth Amendment right is too important. He has his Fifth Amendment rights, irrespective of whether you're sitting here. What I'm saying is that you need to follow procedures and you can't just, you know, come in here cavalierly. I've never met you before in my life. I have no idea who you are. You're not part of this case, Period and interposed objections on behalf of Mr Hughes. You just can't do it. Those are the rules are very clear. You're clearly completely out of your league with respect to civil litigation. Your criminal lawyer? I've both and I actually Well, Arvin, you should know the rules and the rules. That's why you should know better that I think you should just keep you in your position. I would ask you to be a little bit more mature, but thank you, Mr Here's let's proceed with the questioning. With your role in hand south that you created the handle Enhanced athlete for instagram. Correct? Objection. Faith instructed, Not answer. You can answer If I answer, I wave my fifth. You can take the fifth. This is this is ridiculous. He's not your lawyer for this case. Okay, You're all repeat what he says. I take the Fifth Amendment. Have you ever posted on the handle? Enhanced athlete. I play on Instagram. I plead the fifth. You can't talk. This is told it is in the is in the camera. Okay, Make him a little more in the camera because I want the court to see this. He's whispering answers in his ear. After I've asked a question. It's totally enough. I'm instructing him to not do not do that. I'm going to keep doing it. I would ask you not to raise. I'd ask you not to raise your voice at me. I don't think I did. I think you did well disagree on that. OK, what's a greeting out? Grace for? Answer in the witnesses and continue objected. You can't do that. Okay? You I'm doing it. I'm telling you, this is a big This is a big issue. Was a big problem. All right, let me ask the question again. Have you ever posted on Answer Instagram with respect to the enhanced athlete brand? Objection. I plead the fifth. So posting on instagram is like a criminal activities that were saying Please, you can't whisper for the record. I mean, this is all on videotape, right? He's in there. You could see him leaning in and giving them answers about winning. And I'm being that I'm not whispering objective. You don't have to say what happens. There's a video of it. I understand that. You're so t Do what you told me not to dio. Are you, like here? Are you checked in? I'm very much check your short. Yeah, okay. I don't have a counsel of record is filed with the court. And here we have and he has a has a counsel's. He's right there. Yes, but, I mean, you just served me this's under your thirty six as a person most knowledgeable as a managing agent of enhance out with respect to its advertising questions directly relate to that a lot. I'm a named defendant. That's correct. Yeah. Yeah, but these questions are respect to your thirty six deposition notice where you're answering on behalf of enhanced athlete. So I'm not allowed to have an attorney. He's your attorney, is my point, you know, because I'm not. He's Indiana's athletes attorney for the record, him taking the position that that's his attorney and he's associated with enhanced athlete is incriminating. Do you not understand what the criminal investigation is about. You obviously don't understand that The court has already ruled that Mr Hughes is managing agent. I know. I haven't not understand. Note that, Gloria. You know that I Yes, I've read the rule. I've read the ruling. Really? It was enough to get him here. But the court is not taking any position and thinking about a different order. Okay, because there's another order that says February twelfth February for table twelve February fourteenth. I've got it, sir. All right, we'LL Have you read it? Read it. All right. What does it say? It says that Mr Hughes is the managing agent of enhanced athlete. And that's what these questions are directed. Teo. His, uh, his role as managing agent for the advertising. Correct? Yes. Let me tell you some stories. They're taller. Here's statements that have been made so far. Bye, Mr Hughes. And he's no longer making statements. I understand you were able to use the statements he's already made to get your court order bringing him as a party designee, but in terms of any further statements, he's not making them whether or not he's an officer of enhanced athlete Whether or not he's the marketing person behind everything goes to the crocs of the criminal investigation. The criminal investigation is only with respect to enhance outfit As far as I know you'LL be telling me different. I'm not telling you anything. You Well, I think you need to provide some basis as to why you would have a blank I'LL provide. Is this on the lawn motion? Right now? It's just the way I needed one time. You only get one go at your duchess. Good. I lost my train of thought that I would say that the courts made very clear why he's here today. And there's only one counsel of record for enhance athlete. And these questions only have to do with enhanced athlete. If he wants to take the fifth, it's his prerogative. But city having you parachute in here when you're not even counsel of record whispering in his ear after I have provided a question that's directly relevant to the court's order, his contempt of court. I understand all the questions are relevant, but there is an ongoing criminal investigation here. I need to know the parameters of that in order to make an assessment. Whether or not invocation of the fifth is proper. I can only tell you what I know. Based on my understanding based on conversations with other defendant. And what is it? I'm happy to go off the record if you like or Yeah. Okay. Off the record, please. We're now going off the record. The time is nine. Thirty six a. M. We are now back on the record. That time is nine. Thirty eight a. M. Counsel has just engaged in an off the record discussion, which I think will be helpful for moving this deposition on. I just want to state for the record as counsel for Atlanta enhanced athlete that we have no objection to Mr He's having separate counsel to desert his constitutional privilege. Thank you. I'd like to move to exhibit three. Um This is a declaration of Scott Cavil, dated February first twenty eighteen. Have you seen this document before? Mr Hughes? Yes. Did you see it before it was prepared on February first? No, but do you remember when you first saw it? No. Was it recently, or was it around this time? It was. It was a long time ago. Okay, Now it says this is a decoration Mr Carville made in opposition to my motion to compel you to deposition. And in this declaration, which was prepared by Retain and Tucker, former counsel. It appears that Mr Carville concedes that he's selling CE arms and Paragraph five and I'LL read it for the record Nutrition distribution contends Mr Hughes is a founder of Enhanced Athlete. Although Mr Hughes and I discussed how it would be helpful to the consuming public for there to be a company that would market nutritional supplements and products in a way that would be more transparent, then how such products generally were being marketed At the time, I was the sole founder of Enhanced Athlete That statement. True, Monsieur, I'm just thinking, if I do it, object that. Jack. So can I please, sis? Okay then says after enhance ethic was created, Mr Hughes agreed to serve his brand ambassador for enhanced athlete. When was enhanced ethic created? I don't remember. Did you ever serve his brand Ambassador for Enhance athlete? I plead the fifth. I mean, one thing I'm going to say here is whether we call it a brand ambassador or Africa advertising guru or big man in charge or whatever it is. I mean, there's a lot of evidence of what he did. So I don't think that Fifth Amendment would be appropriate when it's affected. Living wave by his his agreement. So why don't we put this one on hold and just move on to some of the evidence we have? It hasn't been provided by by agreement as a baby. You said that I provided all this by agreement, So I've waved my fifth. How did I provide this by Agreed. Provided publicly? No. Yeah. I mean, that's not really an agreement. Waken argue Semantics there. But it's all public for the declaration. Scott. Yes. We'LL get back to that later. I'd like to move to Exhibit four So on September seventeenth twenty fifteen, someone with the enhance athlete dot com Facebook page posted about a product called Austin Muscle Correct.

And says here that you've been taking us to muscle that you're three and a half weeks out from a body building contest and that you're burning fat and keeping all precious harder and muscle.

Were you involved in all of the genesis of the euro hands athlete dot com? I plead the fifth. Okay, well, look at the bottom of the page here. The third sentence in the first page, says Our products are clinically tested for optimal purity and potency. Are you aware of any testing of these products? I plead the fifth. Generally. What do you What do you consider to be clinically tested? I'm just asking for your definition outside of this. All right? It could be That's a pretty broad phrase. So it could be any scientific test. Do you think that it has to be done by scientists, for example, to be it? Clinically tested would have to be done in a clinic. What do you mean, My clinic? Well, like a home is not a clinic. Okay, Something under the auspices of appeared to be here. I would think clinical means the location so it could be like a h gh clinic. So do scientists have to be involved as you consider this term clinical thing, The definition clinical testing, I don't think it requires a scientist requires of location and business that has the proper machinery. So in your mind, it is like it's more location. Okay, so you're referring here mostly to like testing for certain complex percentages of compounds for purity and that sort of thing. You're asking for my definition irresponsibly. This correct. If this irrespective of this direct, what was the question you consider, for example, chemical testing? That may not be done by a scientist. That could be done by a junior high chemistry test That would be to meet your definition of clinical testing? Yes, the very next page, the about US pages. Technically, Page three says about us. And it says, Enhance Athlete is the on ly supplement and research chemical company that is non profit by design is enhanced Athlete, a nonprofit I plead the fifth. Are you under criminal investigation as to whether or not it's a nonprofit? I don't know all the elements that was do do you know? I mean, is it is it a crime to call something a nonprofit? I mean, I don't see how this is in any way related to a criminal act. I'm just asking whether or not you know whether it has two. Athlete is a non profit or whether it makes profit. That's what it says. Profits. I plead the fifth all process Proceeds from ourselves are used for further research and development of enhanced healthy products. Was this true? As of Orange twenty to twenty sixteen, I plead the fifth. All right, thirteen. Okay. This is a post from the star map. Okay, This is opposed from the Enhance Athlete Web page. This is now dated April second, twenty sixteen. Says, eating whatever I want and still losing fat and getting muscle. One of the on ly issues I've had as far as getting older is my metabolism. It goes on and on and in the middle it starts talking about DNP. This's about eight or nine lines from the top, says secondarily. The DNP, which keeps insulin levels lower and burns off the excess calories, is heat and third and anabolic, which is just so so is DNP pictured in your hand Here I plead the fifth. Does DNP keep insulin levels lower? I based on your personal knowledge, Yes. Does it burn off excess calories as he? You know, I do have to consult with my criminal defense attorney because I just answer the you can't consult with him And while questions pending. So just answer the question.

It enhance athlete is going to subject you to criminal liability. Is that what you're saying? It has nothing to do with you, I thought looks like you're tryingto make it have something to do. I already know that he does work there so I could make that link. I'm just asking you. So why are you asking me? Because I want Because do you know it? Inside of the Fifth Amendment, protection for third parties? My question. Did you simply whether you know, whether if you know, Mr Kirby quick works at hand. That athlete my knowledge about enhanced athlete stuff is exactly I would try to tie me into a criminal case. But, you know, Kirby quick is right. I plead the fifth. Well, I mean, he's one of he's the only person like this, The only person who would comment on this post in April twenty sixteen. So you must have known back then. Correct. I plead the fifth. Right around this time your being successful. We started getting successful with enhanced athlete. You started a company called Blue Water Holdings. That's, uh, March twenty first twenty sixteen.

Also, he was formed, according to Secretary of State. What does blue Water holdings also do? For the record, he's asking for an answer from his criminal defense attorney. For the record, I was telling my criminal defense attorney is something I wasn't a question. You can't do that. You're supposed to answer my questions. You're not allowed to consult them. If they have an objection, they could make an objection. Turn yourself. Now the last question again. What? This Blue Water Holdings LLC dio I plead the fifth mom. If you look at the second page here, it says that it started by someone named No Courtney Pearson. Who's Courtney Person? We'Ll plead the fifth. You don't know who Courtney Person is. I plead the fifth again. I would object. I don't think that you're just simply, if you know someone is going. Is any way related to a crime? I mean, I'm just asking if you know who Courtney person is. I think if I do know someone that's involved in a crime, then it starts tying me into it, OK? Especially when it's a broad conspiracy charge. Okay. Is that what you're being charged with a broad conspiracy charge? I plead the fifth or I'm not gonna tell you the details of it Well, I believe that aside, this court increased Courtney Pearson work for enhanced athlete. Correct? I plead the fifth. I don't know the answer. That one too. All right, let's people on a sixteen. You often claiming social media That should go over the monitor, Dr Tony. Huge. Correct. I plead the fifth. It's not a crime. Go by stage name, is it? We're asking for my legal opinion. There's literally thousands of post with you referring to you, Dr Tony. You don't know why you're drawing the line here. It's not as I'm not even your lawyer, but I just don't think it's going to be great for motion practice. So have you ever referred yourself? Is Dr Huge? I mean, I have a stack of documents saying So you Khun, if you don't want to admit that, I mean, it's a very basic kind of thing. I plead the fifth, Okay? You're not a doctor, are you?

Did you do a night program there? Yes. How long? It takes four years when you graduate. Two thousand seven, I think. And so since it was a night program, it wasn't. The traditional schedule of college is where you start a year in the fall and spring. Is that correct? Is it like you around? I think it's year around because there's no there. There summer classes. You have to do some summer classes. So it ends up being year round for like, two out of the four years and then two years You get the summer off. Something like that. It's hard to remember. And so you graduate Sometimes twenty seventeen took the bar. What? February twenty seventeen. Sorry. I think that someone said it. I think the summer of two thousand seven. Okay. And you got your bar license, Correct? Yes. And so you said you've got a a doctorate of laws. Do you mean a JD? Yeah. So what makes you think of JD is a doctor of laws. It's a doctor degree. It's a juris doctorate, but it's not. It's not a doctor like it doesn't you know? You don't really think it makes you allows you to call yourself a doctor, do you? Yes.

Organization called Project Awesomeness. I plead the fifth Now. That address there? Thirteen nine five Garden Highway. Sweet one fifty. That's the one you just told me about. He was financial, isn't it? Yes. So why is right there and he's registering. Enhance athlete dot com to your law office. I plead the fifth and you see his emails Ryan at choose hughes dot com. What is choose who's dot com. I don't know. It's okay. Maybe one of his. You never heard of the website before? I've heard of it. I just don't know what it is. You don't know what it does. You're not affiliated with that website? No. Is your brother affiliate with enhanced athlete? Ah. I don't have any knowledge to indicate Brian's in. When is a involvement enhance that involved in and Staff Li? What about registering the website? I plead the fifth. Right. All right, That's it for this exhibit. Let's move on to the next exhibit, which will be forty thirty, all right? Just all right. Have you ever seen this document before? I just don't remember if I've seen it. It doesn't look familiar, but stated of Seen it, It's It's recent. It's from April twenty third. It is the amended responses to special Derogatory. So I don't know if you remember from the Bankruptcy Court works. But if it's anything like Civil court, we asked for discovery and we get responses. And if there's deficiencies than typically the responsible be amended. So these are the most recent responses that in half athlete has provided, and I'd like to go through some of these answers. Ah, special interrogatory of one asks whether who parted. Pardon me. Special interrogatory one. Ask to identify all persons who participated with you in the development of the creation of the illicit products. Now the term you were first to enhanced athlete in his contacts and his athletes Answer says that it developed its sorrows products, enhance athlete ink, developed its arms parks without the assistance of third parties Now we know from the record that enhanced athlete ink was formed in March of two thousand seven. And we also know that this arm's products were being sold for well over a year before that. So this is not true. Correct. All right, I plead the fifth. Well, again, this is just asking about enhanced athletes responses. Not enough. This has nothing to do with you. So I'm just asking if this is correct and and And Southie as an institute, this has no Fifth Amendment right. It only touches to individuals. So I I fully recognize your right to plead the fifth with respect. Any answer. But enhance athlete is a company has no right, and these air their responses. So I'm just asking you if this is an accurate statement, the company did not have the right, but I have the right. If I'm associate ID, I'm not company. I'm not I'm not. I'm not asking if you associate with company. I'm asking if the statement that you see that enhanced athlete made is an accurate statement. Me answering that question would imply that I have intimate knowledge of enhanced athletes operation creation, everything not necessarily. And I know it, and I had nothing to do with it. I just showed you twenty instagram postings that show these products were sold before enhanced ethic was incorporated. So it's not like you need to be involved in the corporation to know The answer to this question is false. So I would ask you again whether or not this is a truthful answer based on your knowledge. Based on the evidence presented today, I plead the fifth. All right, let's move on to In derogatory number two, identify all persons with whom you work to create advertisements of promotions for the illicit processed products. And here it says, if you look at the answer, the third parties that created our participated and created advertising for a handsome athlete are Anthony using Kevin full for Who's Kevin Fall for? I plead the fifth. Do you know who he is? I played the fist. I mean here Your organization has already identified him so as someone who worked on the advertising and you're the you are the designee for advertising, So I don't think you can fit out of this, But I've never said on the record that I'm those things And if I did, then that would be waving my Fifth Amendment. The organization has already said this. I have it under oath, but I haven't. So do you think that they're not? So in truth here is that we're saying or you don't know I plead the fifth, okay? Miss defendants informally that Hughes resides primarily in Thailand, is that correct? I consider Thailand to be my home base. Do you have residency there? No. Are you seeking residency there? Permanent residency? No. Um, so you're more of like a what? Sword for it. Visa. Right. But in terms of your your lifestyle, you would be a nomad itinerant if you met with those terms. Yeah, I don't I don't know that if it's the definition exactly, it doesn't matter. So it says also in this verified response under oath that he has uses other social media, including instagram, to promote enhance athlete. That's true, right? I plead the fifth and Annex products, among other products and companies that he's discusses and promotes on a social media cloud. You promote any other companies on your platforms? I plead the fifth. Next one is a response to Special Interrogatory three on page six, and here it's enhanced. Ethel responds under oath. But the question for In Derogatory three was identify persons involved in the production of manufacture of the illicit products, and it lists there in a second paragraph of the response HC Pharma Tec Inc. Nevada Corporation. Now that's the very same corporation that used to be president of correct. I plead the fifth in the past, chanting Sumwalt, who defended his form currently incarcerate an organ in connection with you. Do you know Chen some wall is? No. In the response to number four on page seven. It says Defendant is informally this old approximately eighty three thousand five hundred eighty eight bottles of Sorrows products from March twenty seventeen through March. For me First twenty eighteen. I don't expect you would expect you to know that by heart. But is that more or less accurate with your understanding? I plead the fifth all right response to Special Interrogatory six, which asked for the amount of gross revenue. The response and half intent athlete ink provided was that there was two million three hundred. And this is the bottom of page eight. Two million three hundred seventy nine thousand three hundred forty dollars in gross revenue with respect to the sale of sorrows products from April first until the end, Love twenty seventeen. Is that more or less accurate? With your understanding? I plead the fifth. All right, let's move on no. All right, let's look at eleven. A person who has knowledge of any of the ingredients of the illicit products. Again, it's his chance on Walt. And then it was HC Farm Attack and its list. The executive officer of HC former Tech Jorge Irregularity. You know who that is? I plead the fifth. You heard of that guy? I plead the fifth So enhanced athlete ink is saying that Jorge a Gilera is providing has knowledge about the illicit products in the ingredients. To understand his role might be it. HC Pharma Tec Inc I plead the fifth. Is that the manufacturing entity? I plead the fifth? You know, Jorge Regular is actually also the CEO of another company here. He's the CEO of Gilmore Engineering. We'LL Mark. This one is thirty one. I'll give you this one. You like the clips, right? Because it makes it easier for you just so they're not okay. So for Regular seems to be a busy man because he is also the CEO of a company called Gilmour Engineering. Have you ever heard of Gilmore Engineering? I plead the fifth, Um, it says here now. Gilmore Engineering's named as a defendant because, according to documents, that we discovered their listeners and manufacturer of DNP, and so we need them in the lawsuit now. Jorge Gilera, who also works for HC Form Attack, which you and Lavelle were officers at one point, also runs Gilmore Engineering. It says here, Item four Gilmore Engineering. Just not manufacture, distribute GMP many of its products. Do you know if that's true? I plead the fifth. We do not manufacture DNP at all. Do you know if that's true? I plead the fifth. All right. Getting back to the to exhibit thirty twenty. Right? Thirty. Sorry. Uh uh. Number thirteen. Identify each person working for on behalf of you who's ever had any involvement in drafting, creating or developing a product description. And list on Lee Scott Cavill. See that? I see it, But I showed you labels from before Scott when Skoko vote was still in prison. So he clearly didn't work on those, right? I plead the fifth. Do you know who worked on the labels? Private Scott? I played the first. You know, if someone else did I plead the fifth? All right. This will be thirty two. Wei have two copies can use that word. Okay, so this is an image of no sorry is being sold at Mr Olympia and twenty seventeen. Correct. I plead the fifth to remember and hands out. They having a booth at Mr Olympian. Twenty seventeen. I plead the fifth. Good. Where you at? Mr Olympia And twenty seventeen. I plead the fifth was Scott Kovell up, Mr Olympian twenty seventeen. I plead the fifth. Let's look at the next page. Is that Mr Koval? I plead the fifth and he was supposed to get permission from his parole officer to go Las Vegas, wasn't he? I I don't You're aware that he's under super, but he was under supervised release. Correct? Yes. And so and no point did he provide no get permission from the court to leave Sacramento strike that one of the conditions of his supervised release is that he may not leave the county. Which Sacramento situated Are you aware of that? No. He's required to obtain permission from his parole officer. And according to the record, he didn't not. Were you ever keeping tabs on him with whether or not he was following his supervised release? I plead the fifth. Next when we've already seen. Next one is a, uh this is the base number nd twenty six at the little right hand side. Aural steroid, pre work aural pre workout steroid that you were promoting again with medical charts and things like that showing low liver toxicity. I remember doing this. I plead the fifth. Do you ever offer an aural pre workout steroid? I plead The fifth common have steroids is a pre workout. Yes. How common. Um, amongst most athletes and competitors, most athletes consumes steroids before they work out. Is that your statement? Yes. So, like, Michael Jordan would take Sarah and forced three throws. The professional bodybuilders? Yes. Okay. Before And athletes in general. Right. Okay. Yes. Apologize. Performance sports, Not strategic exports. So would you consider tennis to be a performance for? No. You consider it a strategic sport? Yes. Let me do this the other way. What would you consider, eh? Performance sport sports that, uh, take strength. Mostly. Strength and speed. Suffer both. Visual. Yes. So most football players consumes steroids before they work out? I don't know. Well, that's what you just said is all. That's why I'm just trying to pin you down. Like what exactly you mean by that. I mean, you think it's really common for people for professional athletes to consume steroids before they work out? Yes. What do you base that on? Just enhanced athlete sales? No, just communicating with them. Just talking to people. Yeah. Yeah, there's, like, no other basis besides that. Just you talking to people? Mom, I don't know it on the basis, but, yes, there's other basis. I just can't think of anything other than my personal conversations. Okay. Um, do you know what you've Asada is? Stands for us. Any doping association? Yes. Do you know that many of the products sold by enhance athlete or banned by Asada? I plead the fifth? Let's look a little last picture. That's Kaka Ville, isn't it? I'm Mr Olympia. I plead the fifth, alright. Let's move on to the next one, which should be thirty three. Got it. Here's a post on your Facebook from November of twenty seventeen. And if you look it says Dr Tony huge and at the bottom there, under your name Dr Toni. And it says that you're a visionary. Do you consider yourself a visionary? I plead the fist, Uh, let's go to Exhibit thirty four. Who got you? Thirty four. So these were sure. Wait, Do this on the record. My thought was just to finish what's on the tape, which there's eleven minutes left. Make a break for lunch, okay? Okay. Okay. Thank you. Oh, seventy five. All right, well, let's get through the rest. These s o. There's a post from your enhanced athletes Instagram dated September twenty sixteen. And the post is freedom requires truthful fax upon which to make an independent decision. Do you believe it to be true? Yes on DH. Do you think cheerful facts are important for players prosecute its claims in this case? Yes. Um on the next page is October. First twenty sixteen says we're working on many projects, including publications, books and videos. Truth is the only way to freedom. And like the Matrix, join us and break the lies that the government, FDA haters and enemies of freedom perpetuate. Do you believe that there is a conspiracy against you? Yes, and who's part of the conspiracy? Censorship. Anybody who doesn't want the information I present to be put out there and that would include the FDA. No, I plead the fifth. Do you think that who else is part of this conspiracy? Just people who don't want someone who's not a doctor giving medical advice like those types of people. I plead the fifth. So you have no idea who's part of this conspiracy against you. I plead the fifth who are haters. Uh, definition of haters or people that do not like you for any reason personal personally. Don't like you, Mom. I suppose, in the broadest sense. What about like a police officer who catches you jaywalking or something, or they hater? Now they're just doing their job. Right? Right, right. Okay. Now, is this part of your vision? You said it said earlier Visionaries is part of your vision. What? Like just, you know, extolling freedom and inferring that there's a conspiracy against you. I plead The fifth is part of your vision too. Have injections. Inject yourself online on your snapshot with illegal drugs, this will be the next exit. Is that part of your vision? The to inject myself with illegal drugs on camera. I plead the fifth. Okay. Is it part of your vision, Teo Hangout with beautiful girls and Ferraris. That part of your selling point is that part of your vision? I plead the fifth for this This'LL all be one This'LL be all be one this one separate What number is this? All these six. Does it different? Oh, yeah, is the same. Is that if I'm sorry, really? Be careful, No. Do you drive a Ferrari? Yes. Um, do you use that to promote the use of a SW arms? I plead the fifth. Why do you include images of your personal vehicle when you from a products for enhance athlete? Is that part of just one of the selling points? Plead the fifth? So you call yourself a doctor? You have a Ferrari? Do you think that generates a following two minutes? You think that generates a following? I get What do they think of Ferrari and killing myself? A doctor generates a following. Where do you think young people might be attracted to? The image of successful Dino Ferrari might listen to what he says, especially if he calls himself a doctor. I think young people are more likely to listen to someone with a Ferrari than without a Ferrari, right? So let's move on to this exhibit. This is taken from your message board. Here's an example of teenagers who are consuming your drugs. You're selling first. One says sixteen year old storm cycle. Hello. I've decided to cycle on storms to get massive strength. However, I'd like to keep the more athletic look. The next one says teenage storms posted by someone in Meru. It says in three weeks I'm going to start my first storm cycle. I'm fifteen. I train regularly. Do you took bear any responsibility for this? Do you think this is your fault? Did you write these? No. Okay, I'm afraid he's I plead the fifth. Okay. Do you think that, uh, teenagers using this is a consequence of value market products? I plead the fifth Kill. Time, time. Let's go lunch. It was a level four three. The time is twelve thirteen. What is it? Well around there. Thirty eight. This's thirty eight, okay, thirty thirty eight will be the complaint. Yeah, thirty. It'Ll be the complaint filed in this action. So. Apple. Yes, I get mistaken, but just do. It hasn't been that it has not been. Yeah. Okay, Doctor. Yeah, this's the operative complaint, but there have been proposed amendments, but mostly just setting forth the timeline with respect. When you found out about this knowledge when you found out about this lawsuit, Mr Hughes, a CZ you can see the first complaint is dated a July first twenty seventeen. Had you heard that interesting distribution had a dispute with in hand? Sounds like athlete before this time. All right. I plead the fifth. Well, I'm referring only to a cease and desist letter that was sent before we felt the complaint. I plead the fifth, so I'm just whether you receive our letter. It was a civil action. Yeah. So do you have the letter? I don't have it now. I mean, I can get it, but I plead the fifth. When did you find out about that? We filed this complaint. I don't know. It was before today on it was I have no idea whether it was a year ago or six months ago. July seventeenth on seven Seems seems like it's been about a year, but I really don't remember and who told you about it? I? I don't remember if it was Scott or if, uh I don't remember for sure. Well, pretty soon after it was followed, like a month or two. It seems like it's been. It was filed about a year ago, and it seems like it's been about a year, but all right, this is will be Exhibit thirty nine. Here's an article where you are quoted from B sacramental business journals. And this article's dated September nineteenth, twenty seventeen. So about nine months ago, and you, if you look at the bottom part of the page about seven lines up, you say. He's told Business Journal that he had not seen the message posted on Enhanced Athlete website, but stated that Tower was putting himself in jeopardy by pursuing the case. You referring to me, right? Probably the fifth. Do you know why you would tell the business journal that I'm putting myself in jeopardy by prosecuting this case? I plead the fifth. Do you think it's a crime that you would do that? Doesn't it? It sounds like a threat. You think that's a crime? If if that's what you're implying. That I was gonna ask if I can do all the implications could be a crime. And what would make it a crime or not in your mind? I don't know. The next sentence says there's a freaking army of people out there who take the R. This is you being quoted by the sacrament of is General. There's a freaking army of people out there who take supplements sold by enhanced athlete, he said. I'd be surprised if he makes it out alive, and that's referring to me, isn't it? I plead the fifth. Why do you think I'd be killed as a result of prosecuting is actually having my client? I plead the fifth. Do you think that's a criminal act? It made me. I agree. You added that you plan to travel to Los Angeles, where tellers based in the coming days to confront Tower and in person and express your feelings on freedom. But you never flew to Los Angeles to confront me in the days after September nineteenth, twenty seventeen, did you correct, and you never confronted me did you? Correct. And you never express your feelings on freedom, did you? To me I have not spoken with you That I can that I know of on DH said the very next sentence says I could see how someone recall reckless. But you would call it justify Why? Why would it be justified, Mr. Hears? I plead the fifth. Right around this time actually read before this article and has athlete was what I consider its apex. You took a full page ad in Flex magazine? No Mark fat as exhibit forty. Oh, yeah. So remember taking this ad out in Flex magazine complete the fifth, um have you ever known? Enhance athlete to advertise in flight magazine. I plead the fifth. You know how much it costs? Advertising Flex magazine. A two page ad? No, you see, on the right sandwich says what we stand for and it says truth, transparency and clarity. You see that? Yes. Um, do you feel like you've been truthful and clear today and transparent? I wish I could be more. I wish I could give you more information if there wasn't a pending criminal investigation. So because of that, I cannot give us much information of us. I would like. Is that your signature on this, please? Lower left hand corner, please. Can you sign this year, Dr Hughes? No, I plead the fifth with the Fifth Amendment only protects testimony, not signatures. I have to ask my criminal defense counsel if I if you're welcome to count. That's true because you made it legal conclusion about criminal defense. I plead the fifth. I've got the case set for you. This is a case about a criminal case law about playing in a document verse providing testimony, direct good. So the case site is. No. Gilbert v. California. The citation is three eight eight US two six three. You're gonna be this if you'd like. I see that it says it may nevertheless be compelled for machine. Right? I see that it could be an issue that you could win on a long motion, and ultimately, he could be forced to do this handwriting. But in my opinion, no, this would be considered testimony, and I'll still same objection you'll instruct him not to answer, even though I've presented you with the case site directly on point. Well, I see that it says in the context of investigations alone, appellate courts have held that those asserting a Fifth Amendment village may nevertheless be compelled. All right, Like I said, I mean, the Fifth Amendment objection stands If we go into court and the judge says it doesn't apply in this context, he's got to answer the question. Just already has a baby. The citation. Now, the judge hasn't in this case. Well, I don't see what the difference is. I got it. What's gonna happen is if I could move to compel Ms and I win, he's gonna have to come back, which I don't think he wants to do. Right. You want to come back here again, do you? Well, I assume you're making emotion, anyway, is well, not necessarily. I mean, this is one reason I would definitely make emotion. I'm not sure what other reason I would have to make a motion. Certainly there's, um, issue, other issues that may come up or something. But this one hundred percent I'm entitled to and you just tell him I mean, the question here would be whether or not it's it's testimonial. I don't think you're one hundred percent and I think you may be. I think it's an argument for a judge to decide if we have to come back, and he's compelled ultimately then, so that's the risk is willing to take. That's the risk he's going today. Well, I mean. That's ultimately his his decision, So it's up to you. I mean, a bottle talk off the record. So it almost happened on and then I can Why don't we just discuss it on the next break? Because I don't want Yeah, that's what I mean. Yeah. So we'll just put a pin in that. What's that site again? Three eight. Three eight eight US two six three There are few other sides here. If you want to just copy it. Okay, So getting back to the Exhibit forty is that your signature? In the lower left hand corner? I plead the fifth. Okay. So right around this time, there was also some problems with enhance after Europe. And it says here says Yes, ma'am that'LL be forty one. Sorry about that. Thirty. Yes. Yes, you can. Okay, so right around this time the will start falling off, and it's September twenty seventeen and apparently enhanced. Europe was raided correct around this time. Mom. Okay. I see the date. And the assertion that Ann and staff flee you was visited by the regulatory authorities. Did you offer this? I plead the fifth. It says here your signature at the bottom. Stay swelling swollen, My friends of Freedom comma Tony huge. Set a forgery. I plead the fifth, okay? So let's take a look at what went down on September tenth. Enhance after Europe was visited by the regulatory authorities last week. Inventories machines, computers were taken, toa investigations concluded, and as a result, there will be a temporary closure of two months. Yeah, and hear you say that there's this is the result of label claims or something like that. They froze the You Merchant Services account. This now paragraph three seems you can't give you a refund, and then you go on to say, Assuming this is you, course they could get. They provoked this. Whoever drafted this email provides a list of and sites first one being enhanced. Athlete dot com, the second one being the fertilizer warehouse dot com for Dante, the third being enhanced chemicals dot com, the fourth being enhanced our ex dot com. So then it says you can still buy psalms using the United States website. You see that on the second page on third page. Did you have any idea this was going on? I plead the fifth. Okay, so not long after this November tenth email was when a harassment campaign was initiated against my law firm and myself, and we'll mark this as exhibit forty two. So this is dated September seventeenth and says enhance athletes exist. Tents is in peril. Greetings, fellow friends. Um, pioneers of human evolution. I'm sure some anyone and why we have removed charm from public view. So this time we're sarma removed from public view and enhance that thing website. I plead the fifth, but this time you must have been apprised of the lawsuit. Because this this dispatch is solely about me. Correct. As of September two thousand seventeen, I think that I was aware of the this LA Some of you might already be aware of Teller and Smith, the capital L law firm that filled to win its case against our mag labs last year. That's not true, is it? We want that appeal, all right? Don't you know I don't follow? Well, there are. They're at it again. This time they picked a fight with the wrong guy's. Here is a quick background, Robert Taller. That's me. A Harvard grad read one percenter has decided that the FDA is not doing their job well enough. Did you write this? I plead the fifth. It goes on to list, eh? It just goes on to talk about your snack really, And has a lot of really kind of childish tactics to try tio out, harass me and impede my personal business. For example, some were more effective than others. I mean, the fax machine. Obviously, no one uses the facts that seem really anymore. But it asked to send five hundred pages of black paper to my fax machines so that out burn through toner and then says that people should basically create call and calling harass me. And thie objective of this is to create leverage in this lawsuit. Listen, if you let me finish, I'll put in the form of a question. All right? The purpose of this was to create leverage in this action. Were you a part of this strategic thinking at this time, Mr Hughes? I plead the fifth and then goes on to say we should create a DDOS attack on the tell us with website and send harassing emails. And then it goes. It goes farther to say that, uh fans quote unquote should show up to my office and make it clear what they thought about the attorney attempting to threaten the freedom of choice. Nails and other debris should be put in my parking lot, and homeless people should be paid to go to my office to make it an unpleasant place. Are these your ideas? Is it before it is part of your vision? I put it all right. This is definitely this is from your chaps Snapchat This exhibit J. Apartment. His image on the paper. There's forty three, I believe. So this is you from your Snapchat You published this? Someone writes right around this time That my guess it's probably Mr Koval mostly. Did this stuff really generated buzz among your followers? And again, this comes at a time where enhance outfit tone of followers. And, you know, there was this huge, like attack against me. And then your lawyer at the time retaining Tucker basically said to cool it or something, and so you kind of try to dial it back of it. And this, I believe, is your attempt to dial that back by publishing a threat of violence, physical violence against me. And here's the what the person wrote to you. I saw the enhanced athlete lawsuit. And Phil, I have a lot of connections in Orange County. That Nazi tower just signed his own fate when he attacked our freedom the fact he underestimates the power of our community. The ability to up his life just shows up for an idiot, is. So Don't worry, my friend. If karma doesn't get him soon, we will. And you don't have to know anything about it. And your response to that Mr His Don't do anything stupid, Which I commend that sentence. The rest of the party got a problem with E. A lawyers are going to kick his so hard. Well, that didn't happen, right? I mean, those lawyers have long gone, right? Um, the case isn't over yet, but your Lord's quit, right? My lawyer's on his athletes. Lawyers quit, right? They substituted out. Yeah. Why this about in favorite of Rich. Do you know what? Do you know why they wanted out? That's I don't know why. I don't think it's true. Maybe it's not a proper objection. What is this about? If he knows? Why did routine and Tucker signed? Is this about? Because dip? No, they are very expensive. That would be reason for them to stay in. That's a reason enhanced athlete. You're saying Replace them one. So it was someone less expensive. Correct. Because they subbed out. And first someone less expensive. Yes, I'm asked. I'm asking you the question. Yeah, Yes. Uh, so at this point, you're making decisions on behalf of enhanced athlete. And what counsel they have. I plead the fifth. Well, wait a minute. You're allowed to have a lawyer. There's no Fifth Amendment, right. Did not disclosing the lawyers. I know your lawyers. I know your former lawyer is secret. What's the question? The question is, you just told me the reason why Rettendon Tucker subbed out. And I'm asking how you know that conversation with Routine and Tucker. And you've been having conversations with pretend sucker the entire time, correct? Yes. Why are you having these conversations? If you're not affiliated with company, no. I plead the fifth. I'm just talking about you. Anyone is allowed to have counsel. So I'm just talking about why you were having conversations on behalf of enhanced athlete with retaining Tucker, as you've just admitted. Andi, I'm not asserting I'm not saying asserting attorney client privilege. I'm asserting the Fifth Amendment privilege. So are you saying this because you're exactly ask, you're trying to tie me into enhanced athlete? Well, you already just did. I have no follow up questions. I said my awareness of why routine and Tucker some doubt right was from talking to them. That's what you said. Yes, right. So then they said you were talking to them throughout. That doesn't connect me to. And he and staff of the contract to routine and Tucker correct. Were they involved in any criminal conduct that you're where is routine and Tucker in a crowd and criminal conduct. I don't know. Not that I know of. And it says, Ah, whole bunch of his enemies referred to me have called to support so I could get Teller disbarred within six months if I want. But that's not true, is it? I plead the fifth. It's you're here you're representing to a third party. He's threatened to kill me that not to kill me basically, because my enemies quote unquote, have called you personally and that based on that information, you could get me disbarred within six months. Is any of that true? I plead the fifth. What's illegal about getting me disbarred? There's no crime here. And that tiny g t A. You're tying me to communications made on what you're saying. Behalf of enhanced athlete. These are your own words. You can't You can't just close Pandora's box. You've used your own words as offense. In this case, you can't back down now that, and hide behind the Fifth Amendment Now that you've tried to use it as a weapon, these are your own words, and I'm entitled to know everything about what you have said. The Fifth Amendment is a protection against government intrusion. It is not protection against civil offensive behavior. I'm not admitting that I wrote this. Who else would write it? It's your own Snapchat. Are you kidding me? I plead the fifth. Does anyone else control your Snapchat? Plead the fifth And then it says, I'm trying to have threesomes with ladies boys in Thailand, you say it's not you. Just some other guy's another gaga randomly does that TV. This is a pretty explicit description of you. So you're saying this may have been someone else? I plead the fifth, okay. So. This snap was around September and things continue to go poorly for hands athlete in terms of its marketing apparatus and its its entire process really on DH. So that was September and that we're moving on to November. Oh, this is Ahh. Attorneys eyes only. The next exhibit will be Exhibit forty five. Okay, so this one is dated. December ninth twenty seventeen and this is starting with. The second paragraph indicates that enhance athlete United States wass raided by the f d A on December sixth. When were you made aware of this raid? Um I plead the fifth. And it says here that they confiscated in again third line of second paragraph. They confiscated fostering DNP and other research chemicals. You see that? Yeah. So at this point, whoever I was privy to this information would know that the sale of Austrian DNP and whatever research chemicals were subject to an arrest warrant. Correct? Yes. And where it's so facto illegal to sell, correct? Um what? I don't, uh I don't think I can answer that If I can answer without please. Fifth. I plead the fifth. All right. The good news is that we always knew that the FDA would one day pay a visit to our office. Why did you know that the FDA would always pay them in your office? I plead the fifth the FDA found in confiscated all reserves of Austin muscle. So what this time you knew that there was a legal problem with Austin? Also, correct. I plead the fifth, okay? Then it says the good news is again says that the FDA approved our facility. Is that true? I plead the fifth. My mom says All passed president futures will continue to be shipped. Uninfected. Do you know if that's true? I plead the fifth It says Here are attorneys are encouraging us to reconsider our decision to continue business as usual, but that you respectfully decline your turns. Advice? Do you remember reading this press release? Uh, I do not remember. Did you receive this advice to stop songs? Arms? And was it ultimately disregarded? I no. If I if I would have received that advice, it would have been attorney client privilege. So it says here enhanced it. Last sentence. Now we have almost thirty employees. Is that true? I plead the fifth. On what grounds? Like just that you don't You're saying he had no idea. Like what? What's going on at all with enhance athletes that theory? If if I have familiarity with the internal workings of enhanced athlete and that's part of the conspiracy, so so that would send Shiv for the government. What would What would cinch it for the government? Some of the employees there were no what his company wouldn't sin., it's one of the many. Pieces of evidence that they would use Teo as one of the elements. All right, let's go into forty six. Oh, no way, partner. Let's go back, Tio. This one, I forget the number. It was the Kovell Declaration that your former lawyers drafted. I forget what number one, but I think we can get by with just referencing the actual document. Now. This happened on February first, twenty eighteen, about two months after the raid. Now, at this time, your lawyers must have known that God, there was a search warrant executed for storms, right? Tell me. Just common sense. Yet. If you look here, this is basically a five page confession for Scott Ravel admitting that he sold Sar mes. Did you ever review this before this was filed with the court? I've read some things. I don't know if ever this is Zach talking. Ever had something similar to? This is, at the very least and whether I reviewed it before followed the quarter after, I don't recall well. The reason, I ask is his highly peculiar for a law firm to basically write a criminal confession for one of people they're representing. And my question to you is like, When are you suing when or if? Are you suing Lieutenant Tucker for malpractice? Have any plans to do that now because literally three days later is when the warrant went out for Mr Bells arrest after this was with corn. And here's here's the petition that the his parole officer put together I'll make this forty seven. You're referencing a previous one. They didn't think there were some documents to us. You referenced the just that one? Yeah. You want the number on that one? Well, but Mark is for Thisyou before he sent this. God, I'm sorry about that. Exhibit A Exhibit forty six is Mr Seville's, uh, petition for Oh, yeah. All right. Number forty six is a petition for warrant or summons for Fender under supervision. Oh, you got one. You know, the state supervision commenced is the same date presented earlier on Mr Capella was released from prison. That's July twenty second, twenty sixteen. Um July twenty seven. Second, twenty sixteen is the day he was released from prison, cracked. And let's Teo, you know, it goes on and on about his violations of his supervised release, and, you know, we don't have to go through this whole thing, but I'd like to discuss Charge five, which is unlawful use of a controlled substance. So third paragraph on page three officers ran the vehicle. Information discovered that the vehicle had been re registered to Jorge Aggie Lara on April eighth, twenty seventeen. Aggie Lera is an employee of Carville's. So the same fella Gilera who's supposed to be the CEO of Fertilizer Warehouse and also the CEO of HD Forma, turns out along, according to the government, to be an employee of Mr Carville's. Is that your understanding? I plead the fifth. Says here, CA Val's roommate stated the vehicle belonged to Kovell. So looks like Mr Regular is a patsy, right? I mean, that's what it seems like to me. Would you agree that saving I plead the fifth. Last paragraph. Most recently, observations by federal law enforcement officers indicate levels continue to engage in manufacturing and distributing unapproved drugs, a dietary supplement and controlled supplements slash steroids for human consumption. However, instead of doing this at his place of employment, which was closed by the city of Sacramento as a result of the search on December sixth, he appears to now be running this out of his residence. So that original press release said that they got the green light from the city. But according to this document, he just was running enhance athlete from his house. Which one is accurate? I plead the fifth, okay? Let's take a look at the top sentence of pitch for. The undersigned considered issue a summons while the case remained under investigation, inferring, I believe, to the criminal investigation of enhanced athlete. However, it appears Cavil has breached the court's trust in an egregious way, and he has continue to place the community at risk. What do you think they're talking about here? Well, they listed on good. They say they agree just way. And they they listed five charges. Right, and you're confronted with the charge. Those charges are manufacturing and distributing drugs, dietary supplements and control substances. Steroids for came in consumption. Kevin will self correct. And as of February six twenty eighteen, you were were not only that these materials were rated by the European authorities that they were considered illegal by the FDA based on the arrest warrant on December six, but also confirmed the government's position here on February six twenty eighteen. That's selling these drugs is illegal, Correct? I'm not a I'm not admitting I was aware of this document or of the time I'm clean. I'm pleading. Okay, so forty seven will be the decoration of Ronald Peter's, which is Cavallo's criminal attorney. And if you didn't know, then you should know now, because, you know, here in this document, I'm sorry. Do that so quickly in this document. I think Mr Peters makes it on ambiguous by March twenty second that there is an active criminal investigation with respect to Mr Carville with respect to enhance athlete specifically regarding the sale of storms. That's paragraph four clears day. My question to you. Is somebody the next exhibit? Awful. Is this? Exhibit forty eight or that is forty. Section forty seven. This is forty eight. I don't know. It's exhibit to forty. Competition is for six. That's No, sorry. Okay? What time is one. Thirty nine p. M. So when we left off, we're talking about some of the history. In two thousand eighteen, we talked about, well, privacy. We talked about the raid. That was December six, twenty, seventeen. Then we talked about the declaration that Mr Carville did with the assistance of counsel on February first, his arrest three days later, and then the decoration from his criminal attorney, Mr Peters, indicating that he's under investigation personally for the sale of storms. And this is dated March twenty second. My question to you is why? After this date. In April of this year, this will be forty nine forty eight. Yeah, forty eight. Why in April this year are you promoting the self's arms? I plead the fifth. It's This screen shot is from April. I believe it was around the twentieth promoting a last chance arm cell for enhanced athlete dot com. Um you were in his half. It was trying to sell off the remainder of its inventory of psalms at this point, correct? Um, it it says that it's a blowout sale. The time for full disk continuation of CE arms is here, so that's what I that's what the document says. I just Amy, the whole steak. Whatever, Valerie, about others. But enhanced athlete even at so you're promoting the sales arms even after the arrest warrant, The admission from Devil's current lawyer than Hansen is under investigation for the sale of storms. You are still promoting the sale of arms after that date, Correct? I plead the fifth, and it says the discontinuation of CE arms says here you have three full days to stock up on sarin Sze during the biggest sale we've ever ran. So instead of just continue them immediately, when you realized that they were illegal to sell, he ran a sale. Correct. I plead the fifth and an answer. If he didn't even get out of the Stars game at that point, did it? I plead the fifth exhibit a fifty forty nine. Screenshots related to a website called Andrus Arms. I'm sorry, man. All of you. I'm sorry. Good. Are you familiar with andrus arms dot com? Um, I plead the fifth, and these products, even other labeled Andrus arms are the exact same trade dress. And indeed, share the same trade name of the product. Boston muscle correct. I plead the fifth. If you know, with a company called B H G Fit, I plead the fifth. Let's look at Page three of Exhibit forty nine. And says here. Spy someone. Amy A Dan. Do you know who that is? I plead the fifth. Well, he's got a picture of you in his icon. And says, Hi, guys. A lot of you have seen is about to discontinue Austrian for all of you who still need more. Www dot andrus arms dot com Psalms manufactured by the same company that brought you in hand. Southie. Do you know a company that is? I plead the fifth and it says it'LL open up Friday, the twenty fifth April. That's the same time that, and in South it was ostensibly discontinuing itself. Stars correct. I'm just looking at your document. I'm Exhibit forty. Anuses ends for twenty two and Exhibit forty nine says opening twentieth of April. So there's a two day overlap. That's what the documents saying correct. So the next page, just page four of that exhibit The Bates Number N D forty nine, Lower right hand corner. It says a out of the storms business supposed title from M. P. J for seventy and says Bad news is out of the service. Business sucks. And then someone named at Les T s says a CZ website is and probably as company. But Andrew's arms is there. Phoenix and says andrew storms dot com. Are you familiar with Atlas T s? She has. I plead the fifth, okay. Page fifty nine. Uh, a few pages over is Bates Number Nd fifty nine. That's another promotional advertisement that's been created. Saying Opens Friday, twentieth of April. A zoo promotion, brander storms dot com and against, as manufactured by the same company, brought you enhance athlete. And then the remaining Screenshots air from the enhance out the Facebook page called Enhance Athlete Pioneers of which you remember correct, I plead the fifth and here some of the affiliate marketers promote Andrew Storms. Ah, saying it's the same manufacturer's E A. Did you direct thes people to make these statements? I plead the fifth. This will be fifty. This is all around the same time as, well, slightly proceeding. This There's a post by someone named Ban Hammer Jr. That is, I plead the fifth and it says V h g fit dot com is an author as e reseller, legit. A product's not sure about restocking the you store, though. And then below that, there's someone named cuisine dot mujtaba who says check out website Andrus arms. Same products with same Andrews arms instead of enhanced athlete. You knew that posters. I plead the fifth. The very next page faced Little Lindy, twenty seven. There's a question from a user named Mo saying, Where can I get storms now? And a poster name Quest for knowledge says Sue has ever anything stocked up over a phD fits dot com. Do you know who quest for knowledge is? I plead the fifth. You know who Sue is putting the fifth? Is that Steve Girl's mom? Uh, Steve could, uh, pardon me. Scott travels No, Stark.

Scott Supplements. I plead the fifth, okay. There's another affiliate, a website that sells enhance athlete products. I think I need to go into all these in detail, see if we get into later. So after the raid, there was a raid on December six that we talked about on Enhanced Athlete in Sacramento. And then on December twenty second, twenty seventeen, the your YouTube channel got shut down. Correct. And a lot of people suspected it was me that I had a hand in this for some reason. Um, was that your perception of the time I plead the fifth? Okay, so with fifty, then fifty one, this will be fifty one. Oh, it's for you. Yeah. So this is a post on of the upper left hand corner. One is on Facebook and the other one on the page is from Instagram, and they're both on or around December twenty twenty ninth, twenty seventeen. And it says, Attention, Freedom fighters. Um, now is the time to band together to fight against ignorance and bleed for the truth. We're coming out with a private server where there will be no censorship as well as loading ten fifteen's a day that Dr Tony Huge channel. Did you have a separate channel? At this time? I plead the fifth. What do you mean by freedom fighters? But I plead the fifth. Why are you wearing a hoody in this? And this Instagram I plead the fifth. Okay. And the very next one is from your snapchat, right around the same time. The same picture says freedom only exists when you have notes to make your own decisions. Do you feel that you provide knowledge so that individuals can make their own decisions? I plead the fifth. A large part of your marketing apparatus is based on, quite frankly, you yourself in your popularity and your ability to generate support from your followers. And part of that is not only your charisma but certain attributes that you described yourself. For example, we already talked already about referring to yourself as a doctor. But there's certain other components that generate your persona, and first of which I'd like to talk about, is the fact that you often refer to yourself as a millionaire, and this will be Exhibit fifty two. So why? This is a post from never get busted. Website Ah, from January eighteenth of twenty eighteen says See you two video and title of the videos. Millionaire Lawyer visits Drug expert Bear Cooper learned the powers of ibogaine, and it says here that your millionaire Laurie and military lawyer I plead the fifth. Did you become wealthy is a result of your bankruptcy Flo practice. I plead the fifth. I mean this. This is referring to When did you stop practicing law? Uh It depends on how you define practicing law. I mean, I downsized over time, so All right. Still guess I have to deal with something every once in a while. Um, but I stopped making it a a full time job when I started traveling this pose. So you sold your practice at some point? Yes. Do you know when that wass it was too part two steps to it and one happened maybe. I remember it might have been three. Years ago. That was the main. The main step, maybe couple years ago. The actual transaction. Okay, so the transfer was in twenty fifteen, more or less when you got a little bit more into the supplement game and promoting doing that full time. Ah, well, I plead the fifth as to that, but two thousand fifteen's its eyes really hard to tell you, no matter state, but it's right around there. Okay? Other than having a bankruptcy firm. So from the years, let's just call it a ballpark. It a twenty fifteen. You became a member of the bar twenty seventeen. Were you banker see Laura exclusively during that time frame? I passed the bar in two thousand seven and I had a general practice before specializing in bankruptcy. And so it from two thousand seven until twenty. So break that time for him down. For me, it was like general practice, first or bankruptcy first, Ah, general practice and then more and more bankruptcy cases until I specialized in bankruptcy. So general practice being litigation or transactional, transactional mostly okay. And so you just kind of hung up a shingle, probably writing a lot of people that sort of thing and then right around this time is a financial crisis. And I'm guessing that's why he specialize in bankruptcy s o that ball parked at it like two thousand nine. So it's like, two years general practice roughly. And then for those six years, you were specialists in bankruptcy law. Correct? Correct. And then you made. So then why did you stop doing that? Bankruptcy. Just law in general. Oh. Because I had a child. I think there's a lot of reasons, but I guess the strongest reason is because I had a child. And what did that have to? How did that affect your decision, Mom? Thie Mom. I had no money and required a lot of attention and there's no way I could practicing. I was stuck in a position where I couldn't practice law and in time with family at all. Couldn't do that both. And yet if I practice law, then I kept developing this lifestyle that she would get accustomed. Teo. So I that point decided I would rather be poor. Get accustomed to that life. Yes, I'LL make myself less of ah, target for her and then retire. So did that happen? Every pore Ah, I'm a lot closer to it now. Then when you left the law Yeah, Okay. Um so what did you do? So what was your transition like? What did you do instead? In order to spend more? Well, let me take a step back in addition to concerns about your family, what other reasons did you quit the law Didn't I wasn't enjoying it anymore when, um I had travelled and seen other parts of the world and all of a sudden when I I thought when I was doing was very meaningful on a big things in very small Mom wasn't having as much impact on the world is? I would have hoped so he wanted to travel. Get out of the United States. Yeah, And I'm assuming with your family. Correct? Correct. And did you do that? Yeah. For a while. Yeah, on and off. And then why did you stop? Bring your family along compatibility issues. Fair enough. And when you mean your family, meet your wife and children. Yeah, girlfriend and daughter and stepdaughters. And you have? Ah, one dollar correct. And two stepdaughters. Correct. And those stepdaughters are you related to you related to your girlfriend? Girlfriend? Okay. And so you brought them along for a while. And travels and travels were commercial in nature. Correct? In other words, there is a business purpose for your travels. In addition to travel for leisure exclusively Yes. So suffice to say you had enough money at this time to be able to travel the world and support a family at the same time. Correct. And ah. Do you know how much money he had in reserve at that point? No, you don't remember? Did you still get royalties for lack of a better term from from your business after you left? Yes, Uh, for span of years were ongoing. I have one last payment that just said last, like, five years or something and ah. I said I had one last payment. I think it's I think it's the last one, but I did. You don't have to look, Bakker asked in return. So as of So this is a true statement than as a January twenty eighteen. You are a million l lawyer visiting. Never get busted. Well, I didn't I didn't make that statement, but in corrected I know I didn't correct. Correct? Why do you think it's been officially have a the perception that your millionaire lawyer Well, I was a millionaire lawyer. I mean, I achieved that goal, and then I decided it wasn't for me anymore. So I got longer decide to be a lawyer or a millionaire. You just got sick of money. Yeah, I guess they could being a target. But you didn't get sick of money. I I am. So it's a necessary evil mechanism for trade. But yes, so you are sick of money. And sick of being a target, Yes. So then how do you get income now? I don't. How did you become wealthy besides your law practice any other way? Yes, I inherited money from relative. Yes. Your dad. Correct? I know your dad passed away some years ago, so as a result of that and again, I don't mean to pry or be personal, but it's part of our investigation part what's relevant to the case. Anything else besides those two things? Nothing jumps out as being significant enough. Those are the two men things. All right, fifty three. Well, I'll save the exhibit here. This is just your state bar record indicates that you were admitted November nineteenth twenty apps two thousand seven. That accurate? Yes.
