256. There is too much dissonance between the words she used and your explanation.
I just can't see how she would use the words "as validation they are correct and I can vouch for their accuracy" if she were referring to an explanation of a mistake. How would "vouch for their accuracy" be a reasonable characterization if what you were really proffering was an explanation for why the numbers were wrong? That just doesn't seem plausible. Your explanation flies in the face of her wording.

My explanation, OTOH, has no single place in her statement at which it creates such a dissonance between her wording and my interpretation.

Hopefully at some point we will hear a more concrete and detailed explanation. Even if my theory is correct, I still don't know why she says that she can't vouch. Is it because she was not shown the original sources or is it rather that she was shown those sources but realizes that she would have no way of distinguishing a forgery from a true document? In other words, is it because the canvass was not performed correctly or is it because she recognizes the limits of what the canvass could truly prove?
