On Wednesday, we told you about the startling admission by Mike Rinder in his January 6 sworn deposition that Leah Remini, who defected from Scientology in 2013, has been in talks to join a federal fraud lawsuit against the church.

Now, we're going to post the entire deposition for you to examine, and we think you'll find a few other things in it pretty entertaining.

Rinder was once the international spokesman for Scientology in a long career in the church that began while he was quite young. His Adelaide parents first became interested in L. Ron Hubbard's ideas in 1959 or 1960, and Rinder first remembers being audited at about 15, in 1970. In the 1980s, he became one of David Miscavige's most trusted lieutenants, and oversaw Scientology's intelligence wing, the Office of Special Affairs, and was involved in its legal affairs for many years. He finally left Scientology in 2007 after he'd spent more than a year in Miscavige's notorious office-prison for executives, "The Hole." (For more background on Rinder, and video of him talking about his imprisonment see our earlier item.)
