He said his TV show was canceled after three seasons, although the defense argued that Ventura had no hard evidence that Kyle’s book was the reason.

Webber said Ventura’s federal tax returns over the past decade showed his income climbed to $3,794,710 in 2003, falling off to $697,455 in 2011 and then to $190,378 to 2012. Ventura blamed it on the book, and Webber on the fact the former governor lives part-time in Mexico and is available for work only part of the year.

Touching on a controversy that has been around for years, Webber played a video of the deposition Ventura gave in which he was asked by defense attorney John Borger if he had ever seen combat. “I don’t answer that,” said Ventura, and added, “It’s none of your business.”
