Episode 6

Abbe Lowell for Sen. John Edwards

Senator John Edwards was a rising star in the Democratic party. He was a popular senator from North Carolina. He was John Kerry’s running mate in 2004 and then a presidential candidate in 2008. But he was also a flawed candidate as he was having an affair while his wife was dying from cancer and while he was campaigning for the highest office in the land. Was the cover up of the affair and Rielle Hunter’s pregnancy a federal crime or simply a sin? You’ll hear David Markus discuss the fascinating federal trial with famed criminal defense lawyer Abbe Lowell, who successfully defended Edwards.
