Conrad Black is fried! He is royally screwed.
First the lawyers will bleed him dry for all his money, and if his money dries up before he is on his deathbed .... he will be pleading guilty.
Not too many people can take on the U.S. system and win. Greenspan does not know RICO laws and stuff like that. Plus; it must of really offended folks in the U.S. for a foreigner to turn up as the defence team. The new charges are actually a way or means to fire Greenspan.
Conrad Black is just paying lawyers so as to stay out of jail. He will stall this case just like Pinochet did in Argentina .... til he is able to claim a "feeble mind". It will take years and years for this case to reach final convictions. By that time, Conrad Black will claim to be too senile to appear for further court challenges. I expect to hear that he enters a hospital sometime before his trial date and where he begins to lay the groundwork of slight strokes and for his ultimate "feeble mind" plea and heart conditions.
He will drop his lawyer and buy a doctor pretty soon.
