(Bloomberg) -- Former U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis took the stand in Elizabeth Holmes’s criminal fraud trial on Wednesday as a government witness. 

Mattis, a former board member at Theranos Inc., is among several high-profile witnesses expected to be called by the government. Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who was also on Theranos’s board, may testify as well.
