But some of the MSM journalists who were, yesterday, are reporting that the FBI agent currently testifying… will be the government’s last witness.
If so, and if Mr. Brafman plans only to say “the government failed to show my guy committed the crimes charged“… and then sit down… we may see closing arguments, this afternoon — with the case going to the jury as early as tomorrow.
We did lose one alternate from the box, yesterday — as apparently that juror (No. 14, not very likely to be asked to deliberate — since two would have to fall out, from the main 12 jurors, there) cannot afford to get by on the $75 or so, per day that the federal courts pay jurors who are not also drawing paid leave or salary — at their regular jobs.
So — what will (at least potentially) the last day of the government’s case in chief bring? [To be clear, there is no order on the additional evidence the AUSAs wish to admit, in the PACER record, yet — so unless the able Judge Matsumoto ruled orally from the bench (and that ruling was wholly-unreported by the MSM), there is still the chance that there is more to go into evidence, on the government’s side. We shall see.]
Do use this thread — to opine on all matters Shkreli-trial-related.
Onward — on a clear day here. Gleefully expectant — with promise of some developments of material import, as ever….
