The Thompson trial in the stretch

Thompson apparently denies saying that her bosses wanted Adelman to get the contract. Two other witnesses said that she did and its undisputed that she asked people to change their scores after Omega came out ahead. Her explanation is that she was afraid that the committee had been overly affected by an overbearing presentation by Adelman's reps. That others thought she was upset is, she says, attributable to her being told that another employee received an unjust promotion.
None of this was apparently offered in a WKOW interview conducted much closer in time to the actual event.

I think its a credibility contest and those are impossible to judge if you weren't there. My gut tells me that Doyle and his guys cooked this, but, where reasonable doubt is the standard, acquittal for Thompson is more likely than not.
