Jeffferson Case to Jury

Milbank’s take on the Jefferson trial is here.

The Times reports that the case against Rep. William Jefferson is headed to the jury.

The six-week trial consisted almost exclusively of prosecutors laying out their case that Mr. Jefferson schemed to use his office to promote initiatives by American companies in Africa. In exchange for his help, prosecutors said, Mr. Jefferson required the companies to provide generous benefits to relatives, including his wife, brother and sons-in-law.
