The prosecutor who helped convict Dick Cheney aide Scooter Libby for lying and obstruction says the case against Trump’s old pal is virtually perfect.
Peter Zeidenberg, the author of this article, clearly knows a million times more about criminal law than I do. However, I question his assertion that it would be valueless to “flip” Stone and have him testify against Trump. As I understand it, any flipped witness is assumed to be a liar — they bring leads that must be corroborated elsewhere through external evidence. So the fact that Stone is a compulsive liar shouldn’t matter, any more than it matters about Michael Cohen.
