Three weeks into the trial, the government has yet to lay a glove on Mr. Bourke. Today, former Senator Mitchell did that Sergent Schultz thing he does so well (“I know nuttin!”) From what little coverage I can find of this trial on the web, not a single witness has said anything that links Bourke to the bribes paid to Azerbaijan officials. They had better have something to offer, or Mr. Bourke might wonder why they have tied up his life and cost him millions (? a lot, anyway) in legal fees. I love a Greenwich scandal even more than most residents but the only scandal I’ve seen here is a waste of taxpayer money and the harassment of an innocent man.
But the trial’s not over, so we’ll check in from time to time to see what’s happening.
