John Edwards’s Newsweek Defense

•, Diane Dimond
 Andrew Young is considered to be the government’s key witness in the felony campaign-financing case against former presidential candidate John Edwards. In fact, Young’s anticipated testimony—along with voice-mail messages and handwritten notes from Edwards that he saved—are considered so important to the case that the former top campaign staffer is expected to be the prosecution’s lead-off witness when the trial gets underway this week.
Meantime, the defense is ready to pick the guy apart—and hopefully plant in the jury’s mind enough seeds of doubt about Young’s version of events surrounding Edwards’s spectacular fall from political grace, so that his effectiveness as a government witness evaporates.
