On Tuesday, Texas Speaker of the House Dennis Bonnen joined The Chad Hasty Show to break his long silence on the controversy surrounding the July 2019 meeting between himself and Michael Quinn Sullivan.

Bonnen and Hasty discussed many aspects of the issue, among them, Bonnen's regrets toward people's lives and careers that were affected.

The biggest apology, really, is for Mr. Burrows. He never should have been in that meeting. He happened to be in town. First signing of one of the most significant landmark legislations, with the governor of Senate Bill 2, that he carried, for property tax reform, doing a far better job than I was able to accomplish when I carried it the session before. And I pulled him into the meeting at last minute to be a witness. And Mr. Burrows has done absolutely nothing wrong, and he and his family have been attacked, and that's unfair. He did what happens at the capitol every day: He talked through a record vote on an issue he cares about as a conservative, and that's it. And he's been put through hell for doing so, and it's my fault. And I'm very sorry for that.
