Young tells court he felt in danger with Edwards
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A former aide to presidential candidate John Edwards says he felt in danger during a back road meeting where he asked Edwards to tell the truth about his mistress.
Andrew Young testified for a fifth day Friday in Edwards’ trial. The former senator has denied federal charges of misusing campaign donations to hide the affair with Rielle Hunter and the fact they had a baby together.
Young claims he pretended to be the child’s father and took Hunter into hiding to help Edwards.
Young said Friday he met Edwards on a rural road in 2008 to demand that Edwards tell the truth about the affair. He says Edwards drove them through a remote rural area and at one point he worried he was going to be killed.
