So far, the prosecution has presented evidence trying to show that there was a bribery scheme going on over in Azerbaijan but has yet to tie Ric Bourke to that conspiracy. From Bloomberg’s reporting, I’d say even the bribery has yet to be proved, let alone participation by Bourke. I assume that the feds will keep trying and when they have established to their satisfaction, if not the jury’s, that the conspiracy is proved, they’ll move on to proving that Bourke was involved. This could take a long time.
Trial is adjoined until next Monday, the 15th.
