The word I got yesterday from folks close to the Tobin case up in New Hampshire was that it didn’t go all that well for the prosecution. Basically, the current team — which has its heart in the case — may be paying a price for laggard pursuit of the case by the original team DOJ had working the case — which didn’t. Tobin’s coconspirators who copped pleas some time ago are now acting more like defense witnesses than government witnesses. Yesterday it was former New Hampshire GOP Executive Director Chuck McGee.
Nothing disastrous, mind you. Just the defense got off to a decent start.
We’ll have more on the developments in the case shortly.
But for now check out blogger Betsy Devine’s site. She’s up in Concord covering the case from inside the courtroom.
