Reporting with Natasha Korecki

Rod Blagojevich stopped in front of a group of reporters on his way into the courtroom this morning.

"I said it before, I'll say it again. I'm innocent of all charges," he announced.

In the courtroom, former state worker and Friends of Blagojevich consultant Rajinder Bedi was on and off the stand quickly after a surprisingly short cross-examination by Aaron Goldstein.

Goldstein probed Bedi about a Dec. 6, 2008 fund-raiser for the Indian community for about 15 minutes before announcing he had no more questions.

At that point, Blagojevich stood up to whisper something to Goldstein. Everyone in the courtroom stopped and watched.

Former Deputy Gov. Robert Greenlee has just taken the stand.
