7:01 pm
the misinformation social media flooded with lies about the impact on fertility. prince philip dead, volcano eruption and the mars helicopter poised to make history >> live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith. he performed the autopsy of george floyd and ruled his death a homicide the medical examiner took the stand. he testified that chauvin's knee on george floyd's neck and officers pinning him to the asphalt was the direct cause of death, even if fentanyl and severe heart disease played an underlying role. >> it was just more than mr. floyd could take by virtue of the heart conditions the other significant conditions are things that played a role in
7:02 pm
the death but didn't cause the death. for example, mr. floyd's use of fentanyl did not cause the neck restraint. his heart disease did not cause the neck restraint >> the testimony comes after a series of medical experts testified that george floyd died due to a lack of oxygen, not drugs, as the defense is suggesting megagan fitzgerald outside the courthouse the defense kept focusing on fentanyl and floyd's heart during cross-examination. >> reporter: you are right as you mentioned, a powerful day for the prosecution. the defense trying to poke holes in the prosecution's argument, really seeing them look for every opportunity to try and sow doubt. we saw eric nelson focusing on line of questioning on george floyd's pre-existing conditions, his severe heart disease, as
7:03 pm
well as his drug use i want you to listen to this exchange between mr. baker and the prosecution. >> in your opinion, both the heart disease as well as the history of hypertension and the drugs that were in his system played a role in mr. floyd's death? >> in my opinion, yes. >> based on your review of mr. floyd's medical records, you determined that he has a history of high blood pressure >> yes it was helpful to learn that from his medical records >> reporter: that was the defense attorney you heard dr. baker talk about how the underlying health condition as well as drugs contributed to the death but it wasn't the cause of death. at this point, jurors have heard from several medical experts who testified the same, saying it was the knee on the neck and the pressure on his body from law
7:04 pm
enforcement officers that caused his death, which essentially is breaking down the argument from the defense. >> thank you let's turn to david henderson, civil rights attorney, cnbc contributor and our eyes and ears on this case the medical examiner felt like he was up there all day long he testified about the autopsy what impact did you think? >> i thought he had the impact he needed to he confirmed whatperts in front. the defense doesn't know when to quit with something that's not working. >> what else do they have? >> say that again. >> what else do they have? what else could you do >> this is a situation where you can't go toe to toe with the champ. the best example is rocky fighting mr. t let them punch themselves out.
7:05 pm
the experts gave you something you could have worked with tobin said four factors caused george floyd's death you cross-examine him about those things each additional expert did something similar. >> the prosecution is wrapping at some point. we are hearing sometime early next week. then the defense if you are the defense, what do you do, especially right out of the gate >> at this point, i think the defense is behind the eight ball i don't know the defense can recover. what i would do if i hadn't done it already is i would sit down, i would talk to chauvin and say, at this point, a victory doesn't mean walking away with anything unless we are lucky enough to get a mistrial you will have to take some responsibility when you get on the stand. that's an out. if you do that, if you basically confess to manslaughter on the stand, which sounds crazy, at that point it becomes an attempt to get the judge to go to the
7:06 pm
low end of the punishment range. >> it's not like we have been informed he is going to testify. i don't think it's a decided matter, at least not publically. >> it's not. i doubt he testifies there's a good chance the defense is really nervous about putting him on the stand part of what you have to understand is, this trial tests skills that lawyers in these situations don't normally have to have. you are not normally deposing ceos you are not deposing people like dr. tobin or thomas. they are scrambling. >> thanks so much. today's testimony wrapped up a week in which we heard from experts on police training and use of force as well as medical experts on how george floyd died early next week, as i mentioned, the prosecution expected to rest the defense takes center stage the question, as david said throughout, will derek chauvin testify? complete coverage ahead on the
