Judge Threatens Blago and his lawyers!
The defense sought a “missing witness” jury instruction on the likes of Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel along with political fixers, Tony Rezko and Stuart Levine. The defense wanted the jury to be told the government did not call those witnesses because it would have hurt their case.
The whole trial surrounded Barack Obama’s senate seat. It’s no secret that Obama wanted it filled by his friend Valerie Jarrett who is a Senior Whitehouse Advisor today. The defense was never allowed to explore or expose that crucial part of the story or call witnesses inside the Whitehouse.
Judge Zagel will be expecting a Presidential elevation to the Seventh circuit court of Appeals for his helping the Whitehouse cover-up their dirty laundry. That is after all the Chicago way.
