Rep. Jefferson’s Trial and a Briefcase Filled with $100,000

The Washington Times reports on the latest from the trial of Rep. William Jefferson.

“Would you like to look inside the briefcase?” former Rep. William J. Jefferson is asked by an FBI informant on a surveillance tape played for the jury at the Louisiana Democrat’s bribery trial Tuesday.

“No, I would not,” the congressman replies as he takes the briefcase containing $100,000 in cash from the trunk of the informant’s car — providing what the prosecution cites as clear evidence of a criminal act.
