sides against Jesse Ventura for winning the case, taken in the "Court

up. In interviews about the book, the Navy Seal (Chris Kyle) was asked who

person that witnessed the bar brawl that Chris Kyle eluded to.
The CBS reporters jumped on him saying that since Ventura won the case,

would do with the money. Jesse Ventura, who was also a Navy Seal, said
he was going to pay his legal fees with the money.

with his name?
