Rod Blagojevich attorney Sam Adam Jr. said today it was "highly unlikely" that the defense would call White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to the stand but she remains under subpoena and the defense hasn't completely closed the door on her.

Adam said he fully expects to call White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who has been under subpoena.

Rod Blagojevich, meanwhile, is expected to take the stand Tuesday.

Emanuel will not the truth if it means implicating himself or his master...and the prosecution has orders to treat him with kid gloves...But while he's under oathe the defense should ask who tipped him off about the fed's, he'll lie of course and the fed's will know it but they will NEVER prosecute him for perjury...that will speak volumes.
