Two interesting Politico reports on high-profile federal (not-yet-sentencing) cases

One professional vice made worse by this blog is my tendency to root for interesting and high-profile criminal defendants to get convicted so that I have interesting and high-profile sentencings to discuss. This spring, there are two on-going federal trials that fit this bill. And today, as reported in these two posts at Josh Gerstein's Under the Radar column at Politico, it seems are notable developments in both trials:

I have not followed either of these cases closely enough to know if I should start gearing up potential federal sentencing guideline calculations. But I do know that the arguments likely to be made at any sentencing in either of these cases ought to be very blog-worthy.

Anyone eager to start the predictions game in the comments either as to likely verdicts or possible sentences?
