Erica & Anna: Ep6 - Citizens First

1 FEMALE NARRATOR: Previously on The Girlfriend Experience It's over between us.
I don't want to see you anymore.
You don't love me? No.
I don't believe you.
SHAW: A.
P.
are gonna run a story about my dropping the investigation in return for the donation.
They are saying that I personally requested the donation.
Where the fuck did that come from? Who leaked it? Was it you? I need you to find out as much information as you can.
If he's going to give her money what he wants in return.
I can't do that.
Yes, you can.
Please don't go.
- All right.
- Please - Please.
- Get away from me! [CRYING] I'm begging you! [PHONE KEYPAD BEEPING] [PHONE RINGING] RECEPTIONIST: Cranbrook Associates.
Darya Esford, please.
[BEEPING] DARYA'S ASSISTANT: Darya Esford's office.
Can I speak to Darya, please? DARYA'S ASSISTANT: Who's calling? Anna Garner.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] Erica Myles did Attorney General Shaw personally solicit you for a campaign contribution in return for him dropping the investigation into Crescent Health? Firstly, Mr.
Shaw did not drop the investigation.
His office determined there was no basis for one.
Second, there's absolutely no connection between the two events.
Right To Action made a donation to a super PAC supporting Attorney General Shaw's re-election simply because we think he's done an outstanding job and will continue to serve the people of Maryland with integrity.
But did he personally solicit the donation from you? I have no further comments at this time.
Thank you.
NEWS REPORTER #2: Is it true that you met with Attorney General Shaw in his office three days before he decided not to investigate Crescent Health? Please contact my staff for any further comments.
NEWS REPORTER #2: Is it true? What did you discuss in that meeting? 9 Independence, between First and New Jersey.
[ENGINE REVVING] I don't see the problem.
So what if Shaw dropped the case because you paid him off? Bribery isn't the problem.
It wasn't bribery.
Doesn't matter.
Call it what you want.
Government is the problem.
Government and its ever-expanding regulation is the biggest obstacle to the free market and my ability to make money.
So, if bribery helps destroy people's faith in the government I'm all in favor.
You don't have to worry about me.
You have my support.
I'm glad to hear it.
So, Erica tells me you're an escort.
You must meet a lot of interesting people.
For the most part.
You know, Erica showed me a video of you blowing some guy and him coming all over you.
Erica couldn't understand how you could get on your knees and debase yourself but kinda turned me on.
Are you in love with her? Maybe, at one point.
Near the beginning of our relationship I was infatuated with her.
She had the kind of career and success that I wanted.
So, that was a major turn-on.
But when I realized how dependent she is it passed pretty quickly.
To be honest, I find her clinginess repulsive.
But she's been helpful along the way.
She introduced me to a lot of people opened a lot of doors.
So, kept her around.
Now I just like to see how far I can push her and how she reacts.
So you don't live with her? No.
She'd like to move in, but I have no interest.
- Can I see it? - What, my apartment? Sure.
[DOOR UNLOCKING] [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING] [DOOR SHUTS] Feel free to look around.
Do you want a glass of wine? No, I'm fine, thanks.
Are you sure? I'm gonna have one.
[GLASS CLINKING] Are you okay? Sure you're okay? I know it must be hard for you.
What are you doing? You know exactly what I'm doing.
I don't know what she sees in you.
What? And this is coming from you? I'll let myself out.
- [CELL PHONE BUZZING] - Hello? ASSISTANT: May I speak with Erica Myles, please? Speaking.
ASSISTANT: This is the office of US District Attorney John Larkin.
Mr.
Larkin would like to meet with you regarding Right To Action's relationship with Attorney General Shaw.
Does tomorrow at 1:00 work for you? Call my office, my assistant will set it.
Who shall I ask for? Sandra Fuchs.
So, I see they're going after Shaw.
Yeah.
Larkin's office called this afternoon.
He wants to meet.
That can't be good.
I'm not overly concerned.
The donation was made after Shaw announced he wasn't going to investigate.
Larkin can't touch me.
It'll blow over.
How about you? How was your day? I had lunch with Anna.
What? Yeah, she called me at work on Tuesday and asked to get together.
I think your break-up hit her pretty hard.
She's obviously still in love with you.
- Did she say that? - She didn't have to.
It's clear just from lookin' at her.
What did she want? She wanted to know about our relationship.
How we met, how we get along Stuff like that.
I think she's pretty torn up and is trying to figure out why you left her.
I brought her here afterwards.
She wanted to see our love nest.
What do you mean, you brought her here? Why? I just told you, she's torn up and probably punishing herself.
There was a moment where she was staring at my bed obviously thinking about us fucking.
But I felt bad for her so I tried to comfort her.
She's really very beautiful.
I can see why you were so attracted to her.
You slept with her, didn't you? I was really taken with her.
Why are you leaving? We're just talking and I'm just trying to be honest with you.
Would you prefer I lied? Fuck you! [SLURPS] ERICA: I heard that you slept with Darya.
And you say you want a family? You fucking piece of shit.
[DOOR UNLOCKS] Here, come sit beside me.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
[GLASS CLINKING] [SLURPING] You're sexy.
I missed you.
I missed you too.
[BREATHING HEAVILY] [MOANING] [MOANING] LARKIN: Do you really expect us to believe there was no quid pro quo here? You can believe what you want.
You met with Attorney General Shaw in his office three days before he dropped the investigation.
He didn't drop the investigation.
His office determined there was no basis for one.
Did Shaw ask you for a contribution in return for not pursuing an investigation? Why don't you just tell me what you have? Why don't you answer the question? Let me make this easy for you.
There are only two people in the entire world who know what was said in that office and you're not one of them.
Are we done? [KNOCKING] Say whatever you want.
I need you.
Forgive me.
Don't touch me! I never loved you.
I just wanted to see your reaction.
What are you saying? You know exactly what I'm saying.
It's over.
B-but you told me that you cared about me.
You said I mean everything to you.
You heard what you wanted to hear.
Please don't Please don't.
Please.
Please.
Please don't.
[CRYING] Please love me.
We can make it work.
Don't get hysterical again.
It's boring.
I'm sick of you and all your feelings.
You're everything to me, you're a part of me.
You're part of me, you're an actual part of me.
I can't let you go.
I love you.
Please, don't leave me.
I'm begging you.
Please don't leave me - You're a fucking leech! - Please, I'm begging you.
Get off of me! Get the fuck off of me! [SOBBING] Get out of my apartment.
Get out! I hope one day, you fall in love and you aren't loved back.
I hope you're rejected the way you rejected me.
And I hope that your heart gets ripped out and that you wanna die the way I wanna die.
[SOBBING] [GRUNTS] [BOTTLE CLINKING] [LIQUID POURING] Oh, fu [CRYING] [KNOCKING] - Where's Erica? - She hasn't come in yet.
MARDIAN: It's 11:30, when did you last hear from her? Yesterday afternoon, around 3:00.
Find out what's going on.
[DOORBELL RINGS] Erica? Just in time, I need some more vodka.

Take some money from my wallet.
Get me my wallet.
It's in my pants.
What are you doing? Get me some vodka.
Hey! I'm fucking talking to you! Can you not fucking hear me? You fucking useless piece of shit.
Get me my wallet, please.

I'm gonna help you up, okay? I want some I want some vodka.

[GRUNTS] Sit down.

Can you take off your underwear? Leave them on.
It's okay.
[ERICA SNIFFS] [WATER RUNNING] - Are you ready? - What? Here we go.
One moment, please.
- Morning.
- Good morning.
[BEEPS] - Good morning.
- Morning.
Come in.
I rescheduled your conference call with Lessing for 3 p.
m.
this afternoon and Baines can't meet until next week.
Thank you.
Um I'm sorry if I embarrassed you yesterday.
It's not the most comfortable thing I've had to do lately.
Please don't tell anyone that you saw me that way.
I won't.
Don't worry.
Thank you.
Did Jim ask about me? Yeah.
I just told him you weren't feeling well.
Left it at that.
- Thank you.
- Sure.
Anything else? Do you want some more coffee or something? No, I'm fine.
I still got this one.
Okay.
[DOOR CLOSES] ERICA: It's a waste of money.
Gerring's numbers aren't there.
I just don't see it.
- [KNOCK ON DOOR] - Hang on a second.
- What is it? - It's important.
ERICA: I'm gonna have to call you back, David.
Thanks.
What? SANDRA: I was looking at the wire transfer from Peter Koscielny.
What about it? Koscielny set up A4 Trust, a shell company to make the transfer, but ownership changed hands three days before the wire was made.
And a new company, Citizens First now controls A4.
I searched for registration information for Citizens First but it's based in Toronto.
Show me.
Here.
Does any of this make sense to you? No.
But this isn't good.
Citizens First is owned by S.
L.
C.
Holdings a shell company also registered in Toronto which in turn is a 100% owned by Martin Hoban a Canadian businessman who's the majority shareholder of Hoban Industries, which is privately held and Canada's eighth largest company by revenue.
Hoban Industries' core businesses are in the oil and gas sectors, primarily fossil fuel extraction and refining and distribution of petrochemicals.
What's Hoban's connection to Koscielny? CIPC Capital has stakes in several of Hoban's businesses including a minority position in Hoban Industries.
Are you in business with Hoban? Of course not.
That would be illegal.
[ELEVATOR DOOR OPENS] [KNOCK ON DOOR] [DOOR OPENS] How did your meeting with Cusick go? I want you to delete any correspondence between Koscielny and Chiesurin.
Everything, e-mails, texts, phone logs Any record of us meeting.
What's going on? No.
Just do it.
What about the financial records? You can't delete them.
The less they can access, the better.
Who are they? Never mind.
Just do it.
Right now.
Please.
And keep this between us, okay? Of course.
[DOOR SHUTS] [DOOR SHUTS] [DOOR OPENS] Hey.
Have you seen Erica? I think she went to the restroom.
Can you tell her I need to speak with her about Baines? - Sure.
- Thanks.
