« Weis Trial Day 2: Going my way? | Main | European Track wants Marion Jones to stay home. »




This is classic. Ellerman leaked the testimony in an attempt to gain a mistrial for his client Valente. At the time of the leak myriad statements were made that claimed only the authorities had a motive to leak the testimony. Without the FBI informant it's very probable that Ellerman wouldn't have admitted his guilt, he would have let the SF Chronicle reporters go to jail for him. He was secretly recorded by the FBI expressing confidence that the reporters wouldn't reveal him as the source. It's also very probable that USADA wouldn't have charged Montgomery and others with doping if the testimony hadn't been leaked to the public.
