I shall happily retract the allegation if it proves to be false. Why 
would McDonough lie about this? Was there no contact between Kliman's 
lawyer and Skillman? Kliman only denies that there was an explicit 
threat of legal action. He does not deny that he had his lawyer 
contact Skillman.  Could Skillman have reasonably interpreted a 
communication from Kliman's lawyer as a threat?
