Lawyer Dennis Chong Kee was the first to speak before a Senate committee formed to understand, and lay out, step by step, what happened.
Kee produced what was called UH's fact finder's report.
The committee, led by Sen. Donna Mercado-Kim first focused on why Kee chose not to interview University of Hawaii President M.R.C Greenwood.
"Her involvement in planning the concert was non-existent. I did not feel it was worth the time to interview her for this particular incident," said Kee.
Lawmakers said Greenwood was required to "sign off" on any university fundraisers. Greenwood would testify that her approval was only necessary in what she called "fundraising campaigns" for the university.
Sen. Jill Tokuda questioned why UH didn't work with the fundraising branch for the university's athletic department called Koa Anuenue.
Kee's response: "We did not make a determination as to whether it was a fundraiser or not."
Athletic Director Jim Donovan said he recalled being out of town when his staff wired $200,000 to promoter Bob Payton, who was working under a contract with the university. He said he later found out neither was true.
Sen. Kim asked Kee where the "money trail" ended.
"On June 26th, the money was wired to some particular account. Beyond that, we did not investigate the money any further," said Kee.
