Mr. Jones repeatedly questioned how law enforcement could link him to the drug ring if they had never seen him sell drugs or why they thought that the more than 5,000 phone conversations recorded through a wiretap were related to drugs.
“What’s said in a conversation like that? Nothing. Who calls somebody and has a conversation like that?” Ms. O'Brien testified as she was questioned about phone calls between Mr. Jones and others in which only a few words were exchanged.
Further through the questioning, Mr. Jones asked why agents didn’t attempt to arrest him early on if they thought he was talking about drugs throughout all of the phone conversations.
