Paul Quinn uses the dreaded "P" word; Bureau of Prisons busy

Paul Quinn reports in today's Clarion-Ledger that the Bureau of Prisons is busy bringing in the witnesses for the upcoming U.S. v. DeLaughter trial. Mr. Quinn is to be commended for mostly avoiding use of the Dreaded "P" Word.

The article raises an interesting question: will DeLaughter call Lott as a witness? I don't see how it could hurt him, unless Lott takes the 5th. If Lott testifies along the lines of his earlier statements released through his spokesman, then that tends to make it look like Scruggs was attempting to con DeLaughter via Peters.

If I were delaughter's atorney, I'd definitely call Trent Lott as a witness.
