Zimmermann Takes the Stand

The Star Tribune on the morning session:

Minneapolis defense attorney Joe Friedberg, who isn't involved in the Zimmermann case, said today that it wasn't risky for Zimmermann to testify.

"It seems to me when in fact you have pictures and recordings of someone taking money that the government alleges is a bribe, there is no such thing as high risk," Friedberg said. He said in order for Zimmermann to be acquitted, he needs to explain his conduct.

Closing arguments tomorrow.
