-- -- at least I guess the legal point he for the prosecution.
He's proving that this was campaign cash -- just a gift and that's not easy it's audited.
First of its kind of got that money is supposed to go to a third party this in this case -- mistress not you know to the candidate himself so it's never been done before it's very difficult.
And I know actually Edwards the chancellor -- lol I worked with him on the impeachment of President Clinton for the Democrats.
And he's a magnificent lawyer and Andrew Young on the stand he's gonna do everything he can't discredit him and say.
You know isn't it true that you said that first volume you with -- father of this child is literally wrote a book about this isn't it true that you are getting you know -- -- making money off of this so.
That this meditation right up front.
Let -- just talking about is there is really problematic for the prosecution prosecution has to show.
That Edwards knew that those two donors -- two with a one is now dead and 101 this is not they testify.
Put that money into port forwarding his current campaign not just cover up -- personal embarrassment but to forward the campaign and and that's going to be tough.
So -- an easy case to defend.
It's not an easy case to defend and I'll tell you why we'll go back to what we've talked about -- -- -- -- term.
The shepherd Smith point the scumbag read what John Edwards this is not a likeable guy just right tough guy to sort of embrace and want to -- for the trial like this.
He's played his personal injury attorney is a multimillionaire.
His -- several times himself to various media outlets.
He's not a great likable guy.
And the jury.
That will affect the jury despite the -- get to legalities of what it is there's something called jury nullification which I don't think leader keep their I would say we condone -- a horrible thing -- when a jury takes a look at the -- says.
I don't care what the law says we're so that I go with the charge it one way or the other we're gonna convict or acquit.
I'm based on jury nullification and I'm not saying that what should happen at all everyone deserves that you know the right -- tried fairly.
But if there were any case that you know there could be a potential for journal the pictures of them that this this guy -- repeated.
So case as a defense attorney how do you combat.
I mean -- just stuck with -- he is what it is -- mess he's -- -- isn't -- we don't know who's gonna take the stand if he does take the stand obviously a lot of the stuff you don't understand.
Would make that decision until I see that.
Cholesterol looking at what she's been behind the defense has notified the prosecution they intend on -- two witnesses who were essentially.
The policing authority for the federal elections committee -- we're going to testify.
And what he did is not a violation of the stature not not not the -- way would even be sensible as a civil violation of the.
-- unless they can prove that he knew.
That these funds were going to her.
To make sure that his campaign kept going in because it's kind of it's there all wrapped together because yes the embarrassment with a -- forgiveness family obviously.
But the embarrassment would have also curtail probably shut down his campaign so they can make that distinction and it's a fine line to say.
That's where the money was going for a wasn't just taking a cover something up to be nice to two of his life right it was to keep the campaign -- I would get to a couple of other.
It's legal issues that we have today it's a busy getting legally speaking.
I've betrayed among case -- gentlemen you'll know very well by now shot and killed try to mutton is -- seventeen year old teenager unarmed.
Walk -- that gated community in Sanford Florida.
There are a lot of questions -- festival about why all -- the cops didn't almost ball arrest Jordan -- at least arrest him question him they didn't.
A lot of pressure on the -- police chief in Sanford to resign if he didn't at the time.
Now he's tendered his resignation and the city of Sanford says no we don't want -- resignation.
-- over what they say that.
They didn't arrest Georgian women because no crime was committed they took him into custody.
They questioned him they spoke to individuals lukewarm on one keep in mind so clearly she did nothing wrong in -- -- in my view police chief did nothing wrong and I think.
History's gonna show us when we see this case play out that that police chief and his department did everything according to the war.
-- police I don't know that they did find out everything in those first 48 hours and they could have held under 48 hours without.
Pressing any charges -- didn't and a lot of things came out later you know the cell -- -- -- -- was on with his girlfriend other witnesses oral witnessed people that hurt things.
That all came out I'm not saying that the -- -- a bad job here on the senate at all I don't know.
But I think we can't just say well it was okay that he wasn't charged and getting obviously the special prosecutor felt otherwise he.
What you don't know it just to be -- -- To hold this -- would that have not to take -- a lot of that peaked at a what became such a huge issue but their job isn't to.
Quell public feeling and avoid heat -- has to do justice and they looked at the wounds they spoke to -- 91 quote who said.
The black boy -- was on top of the other gentleman pummeling him.
That's -- you need for self defense that's it so there was no reason to hold for 48 hours and see if other evidence came up and in fact had they done so.
What would they have come up with there's nothing to this point in time that they've come up with that shows a Georgia man committed a crime we don't know everything prosecution and its -- How are nothing in that what if one another.
All full story I -- get to is this the father and son team -- Robinson team out of Allentown Pennsylvania.
I've been arrested for running a prostitution ring right here.
In New York City you might say that doesn't sound that unusual but apparently these two used to -- -- psychological methods to keep.
The prosecute -- they had working for them in line including.
This is not just psychological with physical tattooing them men tattooing a ball -- -- first -- that.
Kind of a case in Spain is coming walk on all going on him well the idea to keep -- that's why it's basically I -- to not that they would run away they were -- slavery is much constitutionally tasked to so that they would stay in the hurt -- wouldn't leave sort of you know what can you brand can't account and that's exactly that the mentality it's going on it's disgusting -- What can these two guys we charged wit Ki what other than running a prostitution ring -- their of the charges that.
Kidnapping forced sex slave labor I mean -- in the the chargers run very -- here for any money -- as well one of the things you always have to.
Look at when -- looking at -- prostitution cases I've handled a few of them this is always comes up.
Whether or not the win went there voluntarily.
Because and what their immigration status is if you're an illegal immigrant and you're the victim of sex act.
You can get legal residency status that is a tremendous character tremendous incentive right.
To fabricate these lies this whole thing of tattooing in the water -- We have not seen that -- -- can say yeah that's the first voluntarily a couple of them and what's what's bizarre is that by doing so if if it's true.
You're bringing another layer into the case of witnesses who can say.
The continue up the effort and yeah he was crying she didn't want didn't want it's bizarre and the way they set themselves up as as an entertainment company -- original entertainment tax.
So even I even -- commissioner Kelly seemed a particularly horrified by this prosecution ring and he sees the law was the father son -- -- -- -- -- -- facts well thank you very much least -- and Keith Sullivan great to have you vote yes sorry to Andy -- legal segment on that rather.
Disturbing note but it's important to know about because that means everybody can hopefully play a -- and making sure.
These things happen let.
