Iran-Contra Prosecutor Lawrence Walsh Dies At 102 - capradio.org


Iran-Contra Prosecutor Lawrence Walsh Dies At 102 - capradio.org

The Iran Contra case is featured in the upcoming book, The Illustrated Courtroom .  Below is a rare depiction  of the independent prosecutor Lawrence Walsh in the courtroom during the Iran Contra proceedings.  Though Walsh was the special prosecutor pursuing the investigation and prosecution of the case,  he rarely made a court appearance.  One key issue for Walsh was whether Ronald Reagan would testify at the trials and indeed he did at the John Poindexter trial; a battle Walsh finally won. Images from that trial with Reagan giving his televised testimony  are featured in the book
