FRANCEY HAKES (GUEST): I think it starts from the very beginning, Liz, and that is with the indictment itself. Because the indictment itself did not give the president notice, and the Constitution requires that the defendant be given notice of the charges that he is being tried for so that he can properly prepare a defense. And he wasn't given notice of the charges until after his attorneys had already made their closing arguments. So there was nothing fair about the indictment or the course of the trial with respect to the normal due process protections that the Constitution provides a defendant so that he and attorneys can properly prepare a defense.
