Rebecca LeGrand on BBC analyzing the defense team's strategy in the Manafort trial

Attorney Rebecca LeGrand appeared on BBC World News America to share insights on the Manafort defense team's decision to rest its case without calling any witnesses. Forgoing calling any witnesses is always a tough call for the defense, but as Ms. LeGrand explained "It's probably a smart call on a case like this to focus on poking holes in the government's case, instead of putting your own people up there to receive the same kind of potential punishment." Ms. LeGrand also highlighted the importance of documents in this case, and the heavy lifting that must be done by the jury to reach a verdict in a complex white collar case like this one.
