Poner los puntos sobre las íes.

Puntualizar, precisar, aclarar, poner los puntos sobre las íes.
How can I say these expressions in English?

I know to clarify for aclarar. But, what about the rest of them?
  • Quisiera puntualizar que yo no tengo nada que ver con el asunto.
  • Debo precisar que la cantidad desaparecida no llega a los cien mil euros.
  • Es necesario alguien que ponga los puntos sobre las íes. Vivimos en un delirio constante.
I welcome all corrections to my English.
Salu2 desde Madrid,
