While on the phone, Baldwin says: “What I am is someone who… I don’t want to do this whole thing anymore, I don’t. I don’t want to be a public person.
“And you know, I’m the one holding the gun in my hand and everybody was supposed to have taken care of… They always hand me a cold gun.”
In the second phone call he is heard asking a woman: “where are the kids?”
More to come.
