Star witness Derrick Miller got the rock star treatment from the feds Monday.
Miller was ushered in and out of federal court, which spared him from having to face a pack of reporters stationed along Fort and Lafayette.
What’s that worth? Ask Emma Bell.
During his long-awaited debut, Miller came across not as a Kwame Kilpatrick fanboy or a jilted crony thrown off the gravy train. His testimony was bloodless and delivered in a steady tone.
The closest Miller came to emotion was when Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow asked about Kilpatrick’s reaction to being handed a cash payoff from a city contractor.
“He’d take it — what do you mean?” Miller said.
“Did he say anything?” the prosecutor asked.
“Cool,” Miller said.
