with Chris Fusco
Prosecutor Chris Niewoehner wrapped up his questioning quickly after a break. Monk is now being cross-examined by Michael Ettinger, attorney for brother Robert Blagojevich.
Ettinger appears to be trying to prove that Robert had little to no involvement with the Friends of Blagojevich campaign office for most of the time period in question.
The attorney went year by year from 2001 to 2006, asking Monk if Robert Blagojevich had had any involvement in his brother's fund-raising that year.
Monk's answer was generally no, until 2006, when he said that Robert "wasn't getting paid. He was asked too do a few things, but he wasn't getting paid."
Monk looks a little more relaxed and is looking Ettinger right in the eye. Rod Blagojevich, at the defense table, is staring right at Monk. Ettinger is standing at the lectern in the center of the room.
