Prosecutors play a lengthy phone call between Stuart Levine and longtime business partner Robert Weinstein.
As the two scheme about a multi-million dollar deal, Weinstein warns him:
“Don’t salivate,”
“I’m drooling,” Levine said, later explaining: "I was facetious in saying it would be an opportunity to make a lot of money."
Levine also revealed he received a presidential appointment to the U.S. Holocaust Museum board.

Levine said that Republican heavyweight Robert Kjellander, whose friends with former White House adviser Karl Rove, arranged the appointment.
“All they want to see is all your tax returns,” Levine joked to Weinstein about getting the appointment. Levine has testified he shuttled ill-gotten money from numerous deals through Weinstein.
