Greensboro, NC -- John Edwards' defense team moved through several witnesses quickly on Tuesday.
Cate Edwards did not take the stand, but that could happen Wednesday. News 2 learned that the defense may call Rielle Hunter or John Edwards himself could testify Wednesday. The defense expects to wrap up its case sometime this week.
By the time court recessed for lunch, five witnesses had been called to the stand. Most of the questions were directed to the character of former Edwards' aide, Andrew Young.
Elizabeth Nicholas, former Edwards Executive Assistant, said that she didn't like or trust Andrew Young. She also spoke about the close relationship she had with Elizabeth Edwards, and recalled a time when Elizabeth said, "The world would be a better place if [John Edwards] were president."
Four other witnesses were called to the stand, mostly legal advisors.
A former FBI agent that investigated claims around Edwards' campaign was the last to testify before lunch, and remained on the stand for the rest of the afternoon. The former agent compiled an analysis of 137,000 phone calls and a list of bank records for the key players involved in the case.
Edwards is charged with conspiracy, illegal campaign contributions and making false statements. He faces up to 30 years in prison and one-point-five million dollars in fines if convicted.
