HARRIS: In your current role at the Department of Justice, have you reviewed, approved, or supervised the deployment of federal law enforcement officers to these protests? HOVAKIMIAN: The deployment of federal law enforcement officers. SEN. HOVAKIMIAN: Senator, I'm a current DOJ official. SEN. SEN.

That client, Gregory Barela, made the allegations in a statement of claims filed with Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS), a private arbitration organization.
