Blagojevich Prosecutors Ask Judge To Bar Defense’s Wiretap Argument

CHICAGO — Prosecutors in Rod Blagojevich’s corruption case have asked a judge to bar defense attorneys from arguing at the former Illinois governor’s upcoming retrial that playing all the hundreds of hours of secret FBI recordings would prove his innocence.

Blagojevich and his lawyers have complained for years that the government took the recordings out of context by playing on a small percentage of them. They argue that heard in their entirety the recordings would demonstrate Blagojevich never did anything illegal.
