“I am just a simple public employee, Mark, a ‘servant’ I dare say… I am not schooled in the ways of eavesdropping and espionage… I am not even sure what it is you are talking about. Recording? Cell Phone? Battery? Died? You have lost me, Mark.”
Or maybe Mark, You just don’t know how to use the phone. Was it turned on??
But oh, Trail, aren’t you the wily one! Watch Ladies and Gentleman as Mark begins to spin the biggest lie of his life- can he pull it off? “You see this phone, Johnny? I left it behind set to record when I left you and the Senator alone (whom he had ‘put together’ for that expressed purpose…) and I have captured here, and backed up in the cloud, a very interesting conversation about what you are up to…”
Or something like that.
This is new territory, for you Mark; but really, when does the punching start?
