Roughly halfway through the federal fraud trial against Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, the prosecution continues to call witnesses Tuesday – including former investors in the failed blood-testing startup.

Before witness testimony began, prosecutors argued whether they could admit widely seen interviews with Holmes – including appearances on the Today Show and Mad Money after problems with her company were exposed by the Wall Street Journal in 2015.

Prosecutors were expected to call Lisa Peterson – a private equity manager for a company run by the DeVos family.

Holmes is facing 10 counts of fraud and two counts of conspiracy for allegedly defrauding patients and investors in her company.
