A Utah man is set to bring at least four witnesses to the stand Wednesday in his quest to persuade a federal judge that the FBI has not adequately searched for security-camera videos from the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Attorney Jesse Trentadue's witnesses include a police officer who was at the bomb scene and a former FBI agent. Trentadue filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI in 2008.

He believes there is an unreleased video showing that a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside theOklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people. The government says McVeigh was alone.

FBI employees testified during the first two days of trial that they have done everything they can to find the videos.
