Rod Blagojevich explains why he will not testify “They proved my case”

Posted by iusbvision on July 21, 2010

I was ready to believe from moment one that Rod Blagojevich was a typical corrupt Chicago politician. I still think he is. However, I was also ready to believe that the government would not be able to prove its case righteously because the prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, has a history of prosecutorial misconduct, media grandstanding and manipulating prosecutions and the media to aggrandize himself.

Telling the court that it would have witnesses for months and then only having a couple of days worth of testimony and resting its case with the defense not having witnesses ready to testify is another example of that misconduct. They do this in hopes that some witnesses will be unavailable and if they have a biased judge he would allow the defense to get screwed.

Interesting note, the judge demanded that Blago testify himself or that the judge would refuse to allow Blago to put on several of his own witnesses. This is unheard of and is grounds for an immediate appeal.

After all of Fitzgerald’s grandstanding, he just didn’t “have it” as journalists who have been attending the trial have been stating on WLS Radio. Every day the government went on their case was shrinking they said.

    Sounds like a Mob Member got “fingered” and now that member is putting the “finger” on the Mob. Blagojevich probably didn’t do any thing wrong according to the Chicago way… I hope in time this puts the “finger” on Obama.
