3). The Defendant [1] does not only request a transcript of the witnesses interviews per say, the Defendant also wants the transcript of the deals and or promises made prior to the interviews. The Defendant is entitled to this, as a rebuttal to challenge the truthfulness of the witness's testimony. A true and accurate accounting and documentation of the entire interviews in their complete and true form, evidence currently unavailable in the discovery documents. See Ref [Kyles v. Whitley, 514 Us. 419. 432-33.1311. Ed. 2d 490.115 S. Ct. 1555 0995)l.

"Because the net effict of the state-suppressed evidence favoring Kyles raises a reasonable probability that its disclosure would have produced a different result at trial, the conviction cannot stand ... " 4). Deals in which have been made, as well as, ongoing preferential treatment of the witnesses have created obvious prejudicial bias against Defendant [1], thus creating a "relationship of preferential treatment" between the Government and its witnesses, which is now allowed to be challenged by the Defendant [1]. [See ref Us. v. Baldridge, 2009 WL 692107 (ldh Cir)] "It is permissible impeachment to expose a witness's bias". [Abel, 469 Us. 45, 51, 105 S.Ct. 465, 83 1.Ed.2d 450 (l984)); [United States v. DeSoto, 950 F.2d 626, 630 (lOth

Cir.1991)}. "At common law, bias describes the relationship between a witness and a party which might cause the witness to slant his testimony for or against the party". Abel, 469 Us. at 52, 105 S.O. 465.

5). Pursuant to the Confrontation Clause, in which guarantees and preservation of evidence, in which the Plaintiff has already advised Defendant [1] after the Hearing on OS/24/2010 that she had all the deals made with the witnesses, and she would produce them 10 days prior to trial. These deals were made prior to the interviews, in which would only confirm the leading of the witnesses during the interviews, as the transcripts would show.1MASON Reply to Plaintiffs Response for Request of Transcripts on Interviews V.

MITCHELL,_320 F3d 604 (6th Cir. 2003)] "Forbidding defendant's inquiry into witness's bias can violate confrontation clause". Now the Plaintiff is stating in her response, that the Plaintiff does not intend to use the interview recordings, in which would be useful at trial to challenge the truthfulness of the witnesses, The Plaintiff intends to use the notes of the Officers, (judicial note: as the prior testimony in this court of the Officer under oath that he destroyed his notes, in which never appeared before the court, by the Officer) in which now the Defendant questions the preservation of evidence of the interviews in their entirety, due to the government is only selectively producing what they want the jury to see, in which the Defendant [1] can and will show the court that the interviews were bias and intentionally leading to the witnesses.

6). The Plaintiff now selectively chooses after wasting the taxpayers time and resources, not to use witnesses, in which the Officers interviewed, in which either was not properly documented, in which would be bias. The Defendant [1] has a right to challenge the truthfulness of their testimony. If the Plaintiff cannot show that the interviews were properly documented in their entirety, the Defendant [l] Requests that this court order any and all witnesses be suppressed.[ US V. JACKSON-RANDOLPH 282 F3d 369 (6th Cir. 2002)]

"Bias", which is always relevant in assessing a witness's credibility, is the relationship between a party and a witness which might lead the witness to slant, unconsciously or otherwise, his testimony in favor of or against a party.

a) Negotiations of favors between officers and witnesses prior to the interviews will show the witnesses state of mind and credibility of their statements. [HAYES V. WOQDFORD:. 301 F3d 1054 (9th Cir. 2002] " When the prosecution is or should be aware that it is presenting perjured testimony, a strict standard of materiality will be applied, and/or conviction will be set

aside if there is any reasonable likelihood that the false testimony could have affected the judgment of the jury. "

"The government must act with great care when engaging in the practice of paying witnesses for more than expenses. A defendant's right to be apprised of the government's compensation arrangement with the witness and to inquire about it on cross-examination, must be vigorously protected. United States v. Lipford, 203 S.3d 259 (4th Or. 2000). " "The bribery statute 18 U.S. CA . .A§201 (c)(2 proscribing giving a thing of value for a witness's testimony does not prohibit the United States from acting in accordance with long-standing practice and statutory authority to pay fees, expenses, and rewards to informants even when the payment is solely for testimony, so long as the payment is not for or because of any corruption of truth of testimony. "

WHEREBY the Defendant [1], acting as a pro se litigant, is filing a Reply to the Plaintiffs Response to the Defendant [1]'s Motion for Transcripts and PRAYS the Court order the Plaintiffto produce the transcripts (in their entirety) of any interviews of the witnesses, so that the Confrontation Clause, in which guarantees and preservation of evidence is properly complied with, as well as, the Defendant [1] has a constitutional due process right to challenge the truthfulness of the witnesses testimony in this cause of action that any and all witnesses be suppressed.

Respectfully submitted,
