    VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

    I worked with Aaron Smith Levin for a few years. He was a extremely antagonistic, angry person, picked a lot of fights, a lot of unnecessary fights. Generally wasn’t somebody you would want to spend time with, be in a room with for a long time.

    We shared desks depending on schedules so I was sitting in his office—I had done hours of work putting together something you know, figures you know, and it was spread out across the desk, granted. I walked out the office for a minute, I came back in and he had decided to use his desk so he crumpled up everything that I had laid out and spent hours putting together, threw it on the floor and had sat down at the desk. When I walked in the room, didn’t acknowledge my existence walking into the room. You know, it was a definite anger. You know, I got upset obviously, that all of my work had been undone, crumpled up and thrown on the floor and completely dismissive, rude. Just you know, entirely destructive with no purpose.

    He was in a meeting with an elderly gentleman who was talking to him about something, not actually even offensive, and he took offense to it, and leapt at the man. I know he definitely connected, hit him a few times or something like that. And then there was another time, three to four people jumped on him, have to pull him off, drag him out of the room and again it was a silly thing. It wasn’t, whatever the person had said wasn’t offensive. I wasn’t offended by it. Nobody else in the room was offended by it.

    Aaron Smith Levin is an absolute liar. Absolutely, he, when he worked at the Church, he would lie about his accomplishments, lie about what he was doing, lie about his lack of working and reasons he was getting in fights. And there was a constant turmoil surrounding him and he definitely from day one I met him, was not, not a truthful person at all.
