Mesereau segued into the topic of Provencio’s recollection of the events just prior to and just after the airing of the Bashir documentary in the USA. Pay attention to Provencio’s statement about how Schaffel was the “kingpin” behind all of the behind the scenes maneuvering in the aftermath of the documentary, and that Jackson “had no idea what he was up to”, which contradicts the prosecution’s assertion that Jackson was behind it all:
