Hi! I do not quite understand “consulting” here. The only definition of "consulting" I found that I think might fit this context is - "6. to give professional or expert advice; serve as consultant. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/consult" But Dictionary.com shows that it is a intransitive verb when used as this sense. ?... How do you interpret "consulting” in the following context? [Fringe] Broyles [DHS Agent]: Says here Dashiell Kim is a 1027. ... ... 1027: Criminally insane with knowledge of state secrets. Apparently, Kim had a sideline, consulting the defense contracts for JPL. You can't get in to talk to him without official clearance.
