JAMES ROSEN: I also want to correct, if I may, Harris, one inaccuracy from my reporting on air earlier today. I stated apparently, according to my detractors on Twitter, that the scope of the [Paul] Manafort-[Rick] Gates indictment extends from 2005 to 2015. That is when Misters Manafort and Gates represented the Ukrainian interests that are at the heart of the indictment. But the indictment also does state that the alleged financial crimes by Misters Manafort and Gates extended possibly into 2017.
