Those following the testimony of defendant, Bridget Kelly, might write her off as a goner. It's just a matter of how stiff the sentence will eventually be for this single mother of four. Here is coverage by Politco.
On the stand she is indicating she was unaware that the lane closures were for political revenge and that she did not have the power to participate in such a plan. But text messages, email, and testimony by others contradict that.
Members of the jury might be ticked off that Kelly underestimates their ability to connect the dots. She might have been smart not to testify.
Another thing that might tick off the jurors is that she cried several times when testifying. For such a power-broker who had been chief of staff in a political officer, that behavior seems strange. Some of the jurors might assume she is trying to game them with tears.
She continues her testimony Wednesday.
