Ex-NY Assembly Speaker: I Will Be Vindicated After Trial

Former New York state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says he believes he will be vindicated after his corruption trial.

Silver made the remarks Wednesday after leaving a conference at Manhattan federal court.

His trial is scheduled to start Nov. 2. The 71-year-old Democrat was arrested in January on charges that he collected $4 million in kickbacks by abusing his powerful legislative position.

Silver resigned his leadership post but is keeping his legislative seat while fighting the charges.
