GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The John Edwards corruption trial appears to be winding down without testimony, so far, from the former presidential candidate or his one-time mistress.
Defense lawyer Abbe Lowell has said the defense still could close out its case Wednesday by calling Edwards, his oldest daughter Cate and Rielle Hunter, the woman with whom he had an extramarital affair while running for president in 2008.
They also could recall Edwards' former aide Andrew Young.
Edwards is charged with masterminding a plan to use about $1 million from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he ran for the White House.
He has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts including conspiracy to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act, accepting contributions that exceeded federal limits, and filing false campaign-finance statements.
