01:39

ALL THE TIME.

01:42

THE CULMINATION.

01:44

IN FACT, PROBABLY THIS IS THE

01:46

BEGINNING.

01:47

RIGHT.

01:47

SO WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE FACT

01:48

THAT THEY'VE DECIDED CARRY OUT

01:50

THESE TWO SEARCHES

01:51

SIMULTANEOUSLY AND ON SIDES

01:54

OF THE COUNTRY HERE?

01:54

01:55

I'VE BEEN TALKING TO THOSE

01:57

ABOUT THIS FAR TOO LONG.

01:58

BUT WHAT WHAT DOES IT GET YOU?

02:01

>> WHAT DOES A PERSON NEED

02:01

TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO SEARCH

02:02

A HOME?

02:02

PROBABLE CAUSE SO WHAT I'M

02:06

DOING IS I'M LOOKING BACKWARDS.

02:07

HOW COULD A JUDGE GRANT

02:08

THE ABILITY SEARCH THESE

02:09

TWO HOMES?

02:09

AND WHY WOULD YOU DO IT

02:10

SIMULTANEOUSLY?

02:10

PROBABLE CAUSE BEING BELIEF, OR

02:13

AT LEAST HAVING THE QUANTITY

02:14

OF INFORMATION THE CRIME EITHER

02:16

DID HAPPEN IS HAPPENING OR

02:17

IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

02:17

THAT'S HOW ENFORCEMENT

02:20

MUST HAVE TO PROVE TO A

02:21

JUDGE OR A COURT WHY THEY HAVE

02:24

THE OPPORTUNITY OR THE LEGAL

02:25

ABILITY TO SEARCH SOMEONE'S

02:25

HOME.

02:28

NOW, WHY WOULD YOU DO IT

02:28

IN CONJUNCTION FROM

02:29

ONE PROPERTY AND ANOTHER AT THE

02:31

SAME?

02:32

LAW ENFORCEMENT TYPICALLY DOES

02:32

THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE WORRIED

02:33

THAT INFORMATION OR PROPERTY OR

02:36

EVIDENCE MAY BE HIDDEN AWAY OR

02:40

WHILE YOU'RE SEARCHING

02:40

ONE PROPERTY.

02:40

AND SO THEY'RE LOOKING FOR

02:41

SOMETHING CORROBORATE

02:44

THE BELIEF THAT THEY HAVE THAT

02:44

A CRIME DID OCCUR.

02:45

AND AS YOU POINTED EARLIER,

02:48

HE'S FACING MULTIPLE

02:48

ALLEGATIONS OF TRAFFICKING.

02:51

PERHAPS THAT IS A CRIME

02:52

IN WHICH THEY'RE INVESTIGATING,

02:52

PERHAPS THAT IS WHY

02:56

THEY'RE TRYING TO SEEK

02:56

MORE INFORMATION FROM.

02:57

BUT IN ORDER TO SEARCH A HOME,

02:58

YOU HAVE TO PROBABLE CAUSE.

02:59

>> THE ONLY QUESTION

02:59

IS PROBABLE CAUSE OF WHAT?

03:02

PROBABLE CAUSE.

03:03

AND SO, BRIAN, AS YOU LOOK

03:06

AT THIS AND WATCH THIS AND WILL

03:06

SHOUT IF WE SEE ANYTHING, ANY

03:07

MORE MOVEMENT ON THESE SCREENS

03:10

03:10

RIGHT, THAT THIS IS ALL

03:11

BEING RUN OUT OF THE SOUTHERN

03:12

DISTRICT OF, NEW YORK HERE.

03:14

SO THERE IS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT

03:15

OF COORDINATION HAPPENING

03:17

WITHIN LAW ENFORCEMENT AT THE

03:17

HIGHEST LEVELS.

03:18

>> ABSOLUTELY.

03:18

AND THE REASON WHY?

03:21

I BELIEVE IT'S BEING

03:22

COORDINATED OUT OF THE CITY.

03:22

AND WHY ARE THE SOUTHERN

03:23

DISTRICT OF NEW YORK

03:25

ENCOMPASSES, FOR THE MOST PART,

03:25

MANHATTAN IS A LOT OF THE

03:26

SIMILAR ALLEGATION STEMMING

03:29

FROM THERE, WHETHER IT

03:30

BE CASSIE OR THE OTHER

03:32

FOUR ALLEGATIONS OR CIVIL

03:32

LAWSUITS THAT STEMMED FROM IT

03:33

AFTERWARDS.

03:36

AND SO WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE,

03:37

IT MEANS IF YOU'RE THINKING

03:37

THIS IS CONNECTED TO THE CIVIL

03:40

LAWSUITS, ARE THAT THE FDNY

03:41

IS COORDINATING WITH THE OTHER

03:41

AGENCIES IN MIAMI, AS WELL

03:44

AS LOS ANGELES, TO SEARCH

03:45

THE PROPERTIES OF SEAN COMBS

03:48

TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY EVIDENCE

03:49

OF THAT.

03:49

NOW, I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING

03:50

OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.

03:51

WHAT WOULD BE EVIDENCE OF

03:52

TRAFFICKING PREDOMINANTLY,

03:55

SOMETHING THAT MIGHT STICK OUT

03:56

AS TO SOMETHING TO CORROBORATE

03:59

WHAT HEARD THESE CIVIL

04:00

ALLEGATIONS.

04:00

BUT IF THEY FIND IT, IT COULD

04:03

TO FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS.

04:03

AT THIS POINT, WE'RE HEARING

04:04

THAT THERE'S NO POTENTIAL

04:07

ARRESTS, BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN

04:08

THEY WANT TO BE ONE IN

04:08

THE FUTURE BASED ON EITHER

04:09

MORE INFORMATION OR IF THERE

04:12

ARE FINDING WHATEVER IT IS THAT

04:12

THEY'RE HOPING TO FIND A MEANS

04:15

TO LOCATIONS.

THAT THESE SEARCHES CAN

04:42

04:43

THAT MIGHT BE INVOLVED

04:44

BUT DOESN'T ANYONE ANY TIME

04:46

TO DO ANYTHING QUESTIONABLE

THAT THERE MAY BE ELEMENTS

07:15

OF THE CRIME INSIDE THESE

07:15

HOUSES.

07:18

>> ALL RIGHT.

07:19

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

07:19

THAT ANALYSIS.

07:22

I ALSO HOPE WE CAN GET SOME

07:23

VIDEO UP OF THE RAID THAT'S

07:24

HAPPENING IN LOS ANGELES.

07:26

WELL, SO THAT WE CAN LEARN

07:27

A LITTLE BIT MORE.

07:27

BUT IN THE MEANTIME,

07:28

YOU'RE SEEING, AGAIN,

07:30

MORE VIDEO OF IT EITHER.

07:30

BUT AGAIN, ARE TALKING

07:34

RIGHT NOW ABOUT A SIMULTANEOUS

07:34

SEARCH OF TWO OF HIS

07:35

PROPERTIES.

07:37

ONE HAPPENING IN MIAMI,

07:37

THE OTHER ONE HAPPENING IN LOS

07:38

ANGELES.

07:38

AND WE JUST HAVE SOME

07:41

NEW REPORTING, WE'RE TOLD HERE

07:42

BY OUR ABC'S AARON KATERSKY

07:45

THAT THE WOMEN WHO HAVE MADE

07:46

PUBLIC ACCUSATIONS AGAINST IT

07:47

ARE WELCOMING MONDAY'S LAW

07:49

ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITY, WE'RE

07:50

TOLD.

07:50

IN FACT THERE IS A STATEMENT

07:53

FROM ONE OF THEIR LAWYERS WHERE

07:54

THEY'RE SAYING WE WILL ALWAYS

07:57

SUPPORT LAW ENFORCEMENT WHEN IT

07:57

SEEKS TO PROSECUTE THOSE

08:00

WHO HAVE VIOLATED THE LAW.

08:01

HOPEFULLY, THIS IS THE

08:01

BEGINNING OF A PROCESS

08:05

THAT WILL HOLD MR. COMBS

08:05

RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THEY CALL

08:08

HIS DEPRAVED CONDUCT.

08:09

AND SO I WANT TO BRING BACK IN

08:09

HERE BRIAN BUCKMIRE.

08:12

AND, BRIAN, IT WAS THE FIRST

08:12

THING WE TALKED ABOUT, RIGHT,

08:13

THAT THIS THIS IS NOT

08:15

THE CULMINATION OF THIS THIS

08:16

POTENTIALLY COULD BE THE VERY

08:16

BEGINNING.

08:17

SO, BRIAN, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF,

08:19

FIRST OF ALL, THAT THE LAWYERS

08:19

ARE JUMPING RIGHT OUT, TALK

08:22

ABOUT THIS IMMEDIATELY, NOT

08:23

WASTING ANY TIME TO DRAW

08:24

ATTENTION TO IT.

08:27

>> WELL THIS IS BENEFICIAL NOT

08:27

ONLY FOR THEIR CLIENTS BUT ALSO

08:28

FOR THE CASES.

08:29

IF LOOK TO THE LAST

08:30

ALLEGED VICTIM, ROBIN JONES

08:31

JUNIOR, CAME OUT

08:34

WITH ALLEGATIONS THAT SOMETHING

08:34

VERY SIMILAR TO CASSIE AS WELL

08:36

AS THE OTHER THREE WOMEN

08:37

WHO BROUGHT CHARGES OR BROUGHT

08:38

ALLEGATIONS.

08:38

SORRY HE SAID THAT SEAN COMBS

08:41

HAS CAMERAS THROUGHOUT HIS HOME

08:44

THAT RECORDS.

08:45

A LOT OF THE EVENTS IN HIS

08:45

COMPLAINT, THAT BEING JONES

08:47

JR'S, HE HAD SNAPSHOTS OF VIDEO

08:48

THAT HE HAD TAKEN HIMSELF.

08:52

AND SO TO BRAD'S POINT, I THINK

08:52

PART OF THIS, IF THE WHY

08:56

AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

08:57

IS LOOKING INTO THIS IN THE

08:58

LENS OF THESE CIVIL OCCASIONS

09:00

IS TO SEE HOW MUCH OF IT

09:00

IS TRUE.

09:01

AND IF ANY OF THIS IS TRUE,

09:04

COULD A CRIMINAL CHARGES

09:04

BE LEVIED AGAINST SEAN COMBS?

09:05

NOW SOME OF THESE SIMILAR

09:07

ALLEGATIONS CAME UP BECAUSE

09:08

OF A LOOK BACK WINDOW FOR CIVIL

09:11

ALLEGATIONS TO BE BROUGHT

09:11

THROUGH.

09:12

NEW YORK'S ADULT SURVIVOR.

09:15

BUT SOME OF THESE CHARGES, LIKE

09:15

SEX TRAFFICKING, HAVE NO

09:18

STATUTE LIMITATIONS AND THEY

09:19

HAVE SEVERE PENALTIES UNDER

09:23

LAW.

09:23

AND SO LAW ENFORCEMENT LOOKING

09:24

AT THIS AND SAYING, IF THESE

09:24

ARE TRUE AND THERE ARE VIDEOS

09:27

AND THERE ARE CAMERAS OR

09:28

THAT THESE ALLEGATIONS CAN

09:30

BE CORROBORATE TO WHAT WE FIND

09:32

IN SEAN COMBS HOME, THEN

09:33

THEY WILL MOVE TO THE NEXT

09:33

STEP, WHICH POTENTIALLY

09:35

BEING EVIDENCE COLLECTING OR

09:35

ARRESTING SOMEONE.
