Bruno trial enters third week

Former Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno struck an optimistic tone as he addressed the media this morning. Today marks the beginning of the third week of Bruno's corruption trial. "I'm looking forward to a great week," Bruno said.

He insisted he's broken no laws and emphasized his record saying "I think I did a lot of good." He defended his work outside of the Legislature as legitimate. The former Senate leader has not said if he plans to take the witness stand.

Bruno made the same points during today's lunch break. "I had a perfect right to conduct business," he told the media. He again said the federal honest services law is "vague."

Check back later for details about today's testimony.
