Many to many people watch -- think that the prosecution's got a very tough haul ahead of them.
Well Greta we've always believed from the very beginning that this was not a tough case.
You have seen in our system plenty of cases would -- evidence for people go to jail but this is just a case although it's gotten also pigeon.
Where the defendant has mounted a very hefty defense is trying to get from upon their the evidence in this case what -- wolf fortunately.

I'm curious state when she was on the witness stand did she think that she was treated with -- respect to this cross examination.
But does she have any sort of complaint about the way that she's been treated in the courtroom.

And so I think that the verdict that will see in this case.
What was forced address a lot of different things.
In this case so.
