Former presidential candidate John Edwards was recently indicted by a federal grand jury for conspiracy, allegedly accepting campaign contributions to cover-up the extramarital affair with his former aide, Rielle Hunter. Did John Edwards violate federal election law? Or is this a campaign ethics violation? Attorneys and co-host J. Craig Williams welcome Peter J. Henning, Professor at Wayne State University Law School and Professor Richard L. Hasen, a nationally-recognized expert in election law and campaign finance regulation from the University of California, Irvine School of Law, to discuss the charges and how the prosecution and defense will handle this controversial legal case.
