Partial Transcript of the Judge Monforton “Confrontation”

The following is a partial transcript of a series of questions I was able to ask Judge Matthew Monforton on August 5th of 2014. This “confrontation” is available as a free downloadable podcast, courtesy of The Montana Republic (the clarifying statements of the host, William Wolf, have been omitted from this transcript for the sake of brevity).
