    Something like.  

    "We are absolutely certain there is no way one of our captured asteroids will get away and impact Earth."



    "Using the strictest protocols, we will constantly monitor the targeted asteroids' orbits and will never mine one to the point where it's orbit is altered to ever impact Earth."
    Any object whose orbit intersects Earth's orbit will eventually collide with the Earth.  And since the Earth is traveling 67,062 miles per hour in it's orbit, any such collision is not going to be a simple fender bender.

    Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.
