I've had enough armchair prosecutors criticizing the House Managers for not calling witnesses. [View all]

Anyone who has ever tried a lawsuit knows there are difficult decisions to be made on the fly. You make the best call you can with the facts you are facing. It is altogether too easy for grumpy talking heads to come on television to say you made the wrong call.

The Managers got a stipulation to how the main witness would testify if called. They got the facts into evidence without having to worry about a cross examination. Would have calling the witness live been better? Maybe. Might the whole thing blown up under cross examination? Also, maybe.

Unless you have been required to make snap decisions in the middle of a bet-the-farm case, please keep your amateur Perry Mason opinions to yourself.
