Blagojevich trial: Government rests

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Reporting with Natasha Korecki and Dave McKinney

The government calls one rebuttal witness for Robert Blagojevich, FBI agent Dan Cain, and played a couple recordings. The defense objected to the tapes, but the judge overruled.

One is a call from Dec. 5, 2008 at 8:02 a.m. in which Robert Blagojevich tells a Friends of Blagojevich assistant he doesn't want to talk on the phone.

"I'd rather do it on the cell, where no one can hear us," she says.

"Oh, I don't know about that," Robert answers.

The government has rested its case.
