Blagojevich trial: Done for today

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After several exchanges between Blagojevich defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. and Judge James Zagel, court has been adjourned for the day.

Zagel was sustaining so many objections made by the prosecution that, at one point, Adam apparently looked at Zagel incredulously.

"I know you look shocked," Zagel said. "But I don't think you are shocked. The objection is sustained."

Adam will resume questioning Ata on Monday. After that, witnesses are expected to include horse track owner John Johnston, who allegedly was shaken down by Lon Monk for campaign contributions to Blagojevich; and Bradley Tusk, a former deputy governor under Blagojevich.
