I just watched the movie tonight. After the climactic scene in which Jessup admitted to the code red order under oath and he was arrested I was wondering:
[li]Would Caffey conceivably get assigned to defend Jessup?[/li][li]For a man of Jessup’s rank and political pull is there any way he could manage to get off the hook?[/li][/ul]
I guess I’m asking if there would be a way to legitimately/successfully argue that his testimony in the trial of Lowden and Downey is not enough evidence to get him convicted of issuing an illegal order?
I’m sure it would be enough to get him convicted of perjury but i can’t recall him ever stating explicitly that he didn’t give the order. My memory may be faulty though.
