Of ago -- introduced me here now -- -- Kelly Kelly thought.
That he was may have first name now is room why don't we just have a name tag right there.
Hi my name is meg up.
-- how's it going.
It's I it's actually going pretty well for the prosecution I mean I -- this is contrary and because a lot of people think it's going poorly for the prosecution.
Because Andrew Young is not a likeable witness and he's the prosecution.
Star witness -- but it doesn't seem like a lot of the facts are in dispute this.
Elderly woman bunny Mellon love John Edwards and who funneled almost a 100000 dollar and it was called money money money money money money she filed almost a 100000 dollars to his mistress.
Through Andrew Young -- -- there.
It doesn't like a lot of that is in dispute not a defense is trying to sail in her young kept some of -- RA may be dead I don't know.
A lot of it most of it went to re Al yep and then there was another guy who funneled money through do you Andrew Young to -- -- why -- -- that seems not it's not just.
-- -- -- they just give the money as gifts or daddy's -- do they give it as a campaign donation you got that that's what it is you got it that's when it comes down to today.
What for what purpose was the direction was it.
It even if it's a gift it's it's not -- they get into IRS was if the purpose was to protect him or advance his campaign.
Then it he didn't -- it and it was too much money and he did something so that is so the prosecution is say look the money was given solely for one purpose so -- campaign wouldn't blow up yes and even after his presidential hopes died.
So that his and the political aspirations wooden -- you know he wanted to become an attorney general or was maybe thinking vice president so.
The money was so they're arguing over was the money.
Too high and real hunter from the American public.
Which is what the prosecution claims it was you know -- campaign donation to keep his campaign aspirations alive.
Or was the money to hide real hunter from Elizabeth Edwards which is what John edwards' -- seemed to be suggesting this is all cover up.
From the white it had not to do with him whining -- CAC attorney general or president or that you say the prosecution is.
Making its case.
Has this Abbe -- the defense attorney for and he's former war Watergate.
Not Watergate Foreman -- Clinton the kind of guy who's is he -- is -- -- -- -- in the doing what he needs to do I hadn't been that impressed by what I've heard so -- -- he doesn't have that much to work when he's trying to put up -- inconsistencies between Andrew -- testimony.
And is -- this trial has been nothing explosions Edwards gonna take the stand do you think IA would be shocked if he does right I'm gonna sit there I think he's gonna say get a haircut and nothing but if he gets up there it's gonna be because he's the hubris you know the red dot.
And I thinks he -- you.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The -- to the wise when your on trial for conspiracy and -- at a minimum covering up an affair he had with a pregnant woman lay awake but he doesn't think he did anything else get -- the court debated -- what ascending it is narcissism don't ever think they did anything.
Right now we've been -- a couple of criminal cases one in Alabama won in Michigan when an Ohio.
Where there have been black attacks on white.
People where some treat on Martin's names mentioned should I take any of these seriously as a hate crime.
Well the police in Chicago are they that charged a hate crime under the Illinois hate crimes statute and I think they've they've what happened reason to.
One black attacked -- was eighteen years old attacked a white teenager and said this is justice for -- month.
And the reason this guy -- Hayes was charged with a hate crimes because he got the guy at random.
He did it he said he literally -- -- because he was white he -- his arms to his side.
And then picked up a tree branch and attacked as we -- the guy he assaulted the back -- and that crime was motivated.
According to the reports that apparently didn't admission solely because of race that's you know you got lazy -- mindset of state federal beef again you know assault beef against you go to federal hate crime being this apparently was charged under Illinois he's a rising ancestral estate and but the other crime that they're looking at Alabama -- -- not so much in that case as well that the assailants in there were twenty of them one of them was heard to be saying.
Allegedly and I think a lot of this job is just the macho bravado byte by thugs in this and that but that you got to take -- serious -- motivated solely by the person's race finally got a email from a very alert and intelligent viewer who said that in the Zimmerman 911.
Recording altering by NBC.
There could be four four Zimmerman himself.
A lawsuit against NBC under some kind of statute.
He wanted to know if they could be sued for false light -- somebody in a falsely in Florida that's called defamation by.
Basically you defame somebody but you didn't do explicitly by saying he's a racist he's a racist -- coming out there is an editing a tape to make it look like he's a -- That there is.
No chance of it is a Little Falls right here no because for the same reason you can't -- for defamation I can't -- anything from defamation Zimmerman became a public figure.
I could put -- -- and -- lights all the time that's exactly it's got.
I mean it's very hard you guys -- the car lot why don't we -- protection I don't understand why famous people don't get because you know I don't know if you got a microphone.
Can go out there by Zimmerman and I'm about -- he does but first Smart criminal law purposes -- choose not to use it.
All right so this I think if you're famous person again no protections -- all as a practical matter you have virtually -- prior to being defamed Megyn Kelly everybody that's here.
But don't -- that encourage any of your viewers to go to the Internet renouncing -- -- Nokia and that's a.
